Shavuot

 Email

Shavuot (a two-day holiday, celebrated on May 30–June 1, 2017) coincides with the date that G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. It comes after 49 days of eager counting, as we prepared ourselves for this special day.

It is celebrated by lighting candles, staying up all night to learn Torah, hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogue, feasting on dairy foods and more.

Eating dairy is not an obligation. It is a custom or tradition that can be fulfilled optionally. So you don't have to have dairy if you don't want it; or if you had meat certainly don't have dairy afterwards.

Paleo Shavuot!
There is Toffuti brand Better Than Cream Cheese that I use for making sips and sauces instead of dairy. It's wonderful and no one can tell!

Eating Diary
Shavuot is a time I enjoy eating diary. It's the only time I know to eat as much diary as I'd like and really enjoy it. It's fun! Have as much as you want!

What if you just started the paleo and you're doing great and don't want to eat dairy? Then what?
