Matzah Pizza

It was easy for me to keep the holiday this year. I stuck with eating fruits, vegetables, and proteins. I avoided breads and bad carbs.

A core practice of Passover is the elimination of Chametz. Food products made from wheat, barley, rye, or oats that can ferment and rise are not to be eaten. But, as a friend pointed out, today’s foodies and top chefs have become inventive in creating “work-arounds.” More than ever before, Kosher for Passover food and beverages can be downright delicious.

So, what’s the point? If it’s easy to avoid eating bread, thanks to so many gluten-free and other interesting options, where’s the hardship? Where’s the sacrifice? Aren’t we disrespecting the ancestors who suffered through slavery so we can live in freedom? Aren’t we, in effect, cheating God?

In my opinion, it all comes down to what one chooses to believe…how one decides to behave…how one wants to be seen…how one chooses to be different — on this or any other day. Perhaps it’s the spirit of the holiday that matters most.

Another Passover is winding to a close. So tonight, whether or not it tastes good, I enjoyed my matzah pizza.
