Hanukka

Hanukka celebrates the miracle of the oil - that a small container had enough to last 8 days instead of one. Nowadays, when commemorating the miracle, we indulge ourselves with fried foods - lots of it.

The more fried foods we eat, the more weight we gain. Therefore, we advise people celebrating the miracle of Hanukka to remember that size does matter and that one fried jelly donut is enough for the week. The smaller the donut - the better for your health.

Of course we cannot forget the other holiday food - latkes. Latkes do not have to be fried, instead they can be baked. Also, try healthier versions, such as sweet potatoes, cabbage or other vegetables.
