Shalom! I come to you today in the name of peace among the nations of low-fat and low-carb by offering to the citizens on both sides of the dietary spectrum an honest and sincere accord that should please them both. It's a brand new recipe book written by Nechama Cohen called "EnLITEned Kosher Cooking."

Cohen is a Jewish woman who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes two decades ago just when she was beginning her journey as wife and mother. But instead of bemoaning this and shaking her fist at God for allowing something so devastating to make her bitter about her life, she turned her energy towards keeping a positive attitude, furthered her education by eventually studying nutrition and nursing, and never letting go of the hope for a happier, healthier and more productive life.

Additionally, Cohen was so determined to help other people with diabetes that she started a support group for Jewish women suffering from Type 1 diabetes which eventually became what is known today as the largest Jewish diabetes organization in the world--The Jewish Diabetes Network [..]. She is the CEO of that incredible organization and plays a very active role in spreading good information about preventing diabetes, educating people on how to better manage their diabetes, and to bring it under control through smart choices in their diet and lifestyle choices.

One of the things Cohen was most concerned about what the lack of clarity about what "healthy" living was supposed to look like. All the books on low-fat and low-carb have done is stir up debate in the world of weight loss, but what about converging the best ideas of both worlds by creating a recipe book that works for both diets? That's exactly what "EnLITEned Kosher Cooking" is all about.

Verified Purchase
I bought this for a Jewish friend, but after looking at the recipes, I decided to keep it for myself. Not only are the recipes Kosher, but they are low carb, which is how I've been eating for almost 10 years. The recipes are exquisite, very gourmet and easy to prepare. This is probably the best low carb cookbook I have come across.

author of Cooking Jewish: 532 Great Recipes from the Rabinowitz Family

excerpted from The Orange County Register, Hanukkah 2006

Nechama Cohen, founder and CEO of the Jewish Diabetes Association, slashes her way through the schmaltz (chicken fat) with "Enlitened Kosher Cooking" (Feldheim Publishers, $39.95), a lusciously photographed new cookbook with over 250 good-carb, healthy-fat, sugar-free recipes that nourish the soul without damaging the heart.

"I was diagnosed with diabetes in 1985 and was presented with a real kitchen challenge," recalled Cohen, who spoke to me by phone from her home in Israel, "so I started `enlitening' recipes. After 20 years it was time to put them in writing!"

But you needn't be diabetic or kosher or even Jewish to appreciate these healthful and elegant recipes that are short on deprivation and long on flavor. "Traditional Jewish cooking is known to be heavy," Cohen noted, "but lightening up these dishes is really doable. No matter what your ethnicity, you can live an enlightened lifestyle and be healthy and happy. "

How do you lighten Jewish cooking? "We need to look at fat and carbs," said Cohen. And with her slimmed-down versions of our beloved holiday recipes, we can have our latkes and eat them too!

Hanukkah (beginning tomorrow at sundown) presents a challenge, because this holiday is all about the oil. In 164 B.C.E. the land of Judea was occupied by Antiochus IV and the Syrian-Greeks, who had forbidden Jewish observances and desecrated the Temple in Jerusalem, turning it into a Greek shrine for the sacrifice of pigs.

Expertly compiled by Nechama Cohen (Founder and CEO of The Jewish Diabetes Association), "Enlitened Kosher Cooking" is a beautifully illustrated with full color photography this outstanding culinary compendium of more than 250 superb recipes features sugar free dishes that are characterized by 'good-carb' and 'healthy-fat', making them ideal for diabetics and those who must be concerned with their weight. These thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly' recipes are grouped into the usual categories of Soups, Salads, Vegetables & Side Dishes, Dairy, Fish, Meat & Poultry, Baking Lite, Pies & Desserts, Snacks & Beverages, and as is especially befitting the Jewish culinary traditions, Passover. From Orange and Fennel Salad; Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers; Tilapia with Vegetable Topping; and Tofu Chopped Liver; to Sweet-and-Sour Beef with Cashews; Cheese and Basil Scones; Strawberry Cream Pie; and Filled Cucumber Cups, "Enlitened Kosher Cooking" offers palate pleasing, appetite satisfying dishes that are appropriate as simple meal time favorites or for celebratory gourmet dining occasions. Enhanced with the addition of invaluable information about good carbs and healthy fats, realistic protio control, serving sizes, appendices to help the novice cook, and ways to avoid the 'hidden barriers' that can undermine weight loss efforts, "Enlitened Kosher Cooking" is an unqualified and enthusiastic recommendation for diabetic, family and community library cookbook collections.
