How to Do Rosh Hashanah on the Keto, Paleo and Whole30 Diets

On a restrictive diet? You can still celebrate the New Year with these delish recipes.

On a regular day, maintaining a crazy — no offense— diet that cuts out sweets and pastries takes a heck of a lot of willpower and strength. And on Rosh Hashanah, the sweetest day of the year, it becomes particularly difficult. How does one welcome the Jewish New Year without dunking a chunk of doughy challah in gooey, honey goodness?

It’s challenging, but not impossible. While most of Rosh Hashanah’s festive dishes include ingredients banned by strict diets, there are holiday friendly substitutions that can be made. Here’s a list of Keto, Paleo and Whole30 diet approved dishes perfect for welcoming the New Year.
