The Food – Israel

I’m pretty boring when it comes to food.

I like what I like, and it’s hard for me to try new things.

I’ve always said I’d make a terrible missionary.

Not because of the missionary part, but because of the dietary part!

Now, I’ve never been on an “All inclusive” anything before, so when I saw the amount of food provided for our breakfast, and supper, I was stunned.

The variety was out of this world, and the amount was obscene.

The photos in this post concerning food are from a Google search.

I was far too busy eating the food to take photos of it.

The first two days, I did manage to eat some new foods.

New foods, new spices.

After that, opted for the more familiar fare; much easier on the insides.

There were a few things we found interesting about the food served to us while we were there;

  • Of course, no bacon
  • No meat was served in the morning
  • No dairy was served a supper time

Meat and Dairy

Any meat (the flesh of birds and mammals) cannot be eaten with dairy. Utensils that have come into contact with meat (while hot) may not be used with dairy and vice versa. In addition, utensils that have come into contact with non-kosher food (while hot) may not be used with kosher food.

Pareve Foods

Kosher food is divided into three categories: meat, dairy, and pareve. The pareve foods are considered neutral and can be eaten with either milk or meat.

  • All fruits, vegetables, grains, pasta, nuts, beans, and legumes are kosher. Note, however, that with the exception of a small number of locust species, bugs are not kosher. As a result, the use of certain fruits and vegetables is now considered controversial in certain Orthodox circles, over concerns about insect infestation. 
  • Eggs, fruits, vegetables, and grains are considered pareve, or neutral, and can be eaten with either meat or dairy. Fish is also considered pareve, but some kosher observant Jews do not cook or eat fish with meat.
  • Grape products (including juice and wine) must be produced by Jews in order to be considered kosher.

So enough of this, I’m hungry now.

I hope you’ll join me again next time for Day #4.
