Tip of the Day
Today marks the beginning of Passover. The Passover Seder contains many symbolic foods, most notably, the matzah.
A staple of many Passover meals is matzah, a thin, cracker-like unleavened bread. Tradition states matzah served during Passover should be made with only water and flour, but year-round versions can include flavoring like onions and garlic.
Relatively low in fat and calories, matzah can be enjoyed in moderation all year in it's true form or ground in your food processor and used in everything from pancakes to cupcakes. Matzah comes and in unsalted and whole-grain varieties and can be found in most supermarkets.
