How to Snack During Passover

If you celebrate passover you know the struggle of finding healthy Kosher for Passover snacks. All of your favorite bars have some trace of wheat or grains. And even if your go-to snack is “Gluten Free” it may not be certified Kosher for Passover. So what are we supposed to snack on when our beloved Rx Bars are missing the OU-P.

The truth is it is actually so simple to eat healthy on Passover since most processed foods are already off limits. Most Kosher for Passover foods contain little nutritional value so it is best to avoid them as well. Kosher for Passover foods are typically made from tapioca or potato starch which have almost nothing to offer but simple carbohydrates (no fiber). 

I am a strong believer in snacking, it prevents blood sugar from dropping which will prevent you from over eating. The importance of having healthy kosher for passover snacks on hand is critical in preventing us over consuming matzah later on in the day. 

The secret to snacking on Passover (or on any day) is to keep it CLEAN. 

  • Bananas with almond butter 

  • Berries and greek yogurt

  • Nuts and dried fruit

  • Dates stuffed with peanut butter (if you eat legumes)

  • Cut up veggies and Hummus (if you eat legumes)

  • Quinoa salad

  • Roasted veggies

  • Kale chips

So put down the bag of Bissli because that will only make you bloated.
