Pesach, Granoladox style

Reposting this from last year, since chometz is going out of style again soon. 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.

Channeling the inner caveman

The Paleo diet--a nutritional plan based on the presumed diet of Paleolithic humans--is all over the place lately. The idea is based on the premise that human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture, around 15,000 years ago, and that modern humans are still adapted to the diet of the Paleolithic period.

‘Greated’ root vegetables

As if there aren't enough rules on Passover, I've added one more. This one, though, makes the holiday a lot more pleasurable (and digestible!): I won't make or eat anything on Pesach that I wouldn't enjoy eating during the rest of the year.
