Is there anything worse for a food blogger than fasting? It is perhaps the fasting that makes Yom Kippur that much more difficult, and more meaningful too. Thank goodness I have the break-fast menu to plan in order to keep my food-obsessed mind occupied.

What’s the best part of fasting on Yom Kippur? Well, BREAK-ing the fast of course! Most American Ashkenazi Jews I know break the fast with bagels, lox, cream cheese, orange juice and other treats, such as cucumber salad or noodle kugel.

Wishing everyone a sweet new year, an easy fast and a meaningful holiday!
