I think what a lot of folks love ignoring at this time of year is the fact that the mandated oil (yes, it's the oil that's the traditional food, hence folks eat sufganiot instead of latkes, if you're Sephardic) can be consumed in the form of .... drumroll please ... salad dressing. :)

Thanx for this article! Lots of good advice! Happy holidays to one and all!
I have made latkes with grated zucchini and there were very colorful and tasty. Many of these suggestions are ocmmon sense substitutions but I disagree with not using coonut oil. Doctors are now touting its benefits right alonngside olive oil and healthier than safflower and some of the other cousins to it. Plus it adds great flavor to many desserts and sweets.
Excellent article. I am not Jewish either but appreciate the calorie counts. Since getting Sparked, I have found that I love to cook. I had potato latkes this week and I even made some homemade borscht to go with it. I am taking it this weekend when I go camping.
