We start out Pesach with grand plans. We’re feeling like royalty–dressed in our finest clothes, the table is set for a king and we even lean to drink our wine.

And then, only a few hours into the holiday, the matzah, matzah balls, brisket, potatoes and  chocolate-eggy-sugary-potato-starch concoction settles in, and we feel like beached whales. And that’s pretty much how we feel the rest of the 8-day food fest.

I promise, you, though, that there’s a way to eat like royalty on Pesach without feeling miserable. And, there are healthy Pesach recipes that don’t involve nibbling on salad, leaving you still hungry.

Since vegetables are the basis of most of my family’s meals, it turns out there are a lot of recipes already on this blog that are kosher for Pesach. And since we’re all a bit, uh, busy right now, I’ll do you a favor. I’ll sift through the blog for you.
