I know this may sound a little impious of me, but I am glad that Chanukah has a catchy holiday song…
That said, the food choices for Chanukah are like any other holiday, there are good choices and bad. Latkes taste great, but fried potato pancakes aren’t great for you… and donuts, well they are terrible. Cheese Blintzes and cheesecakes are no better. Salads, chicken, and salmon are better choices.
If you want, you can always go with a Latke variation that is lower in carbs… Leek Latkes and Cauliflower Latkes… I normally don’t suggest alternative recipes for holidays because most holidays are one day, but if you are celebrating for 8 nights, maybe some substitutions are a good idea.
Have a happy Chanukah! Enjoy Adam Sandler singing the Chanukah song…
