Mishloach Manot Idea for Older Couple on a Diet?
- almond tree Feb 19, 2013 08:44 PM
Any ideas for what I can give to my neighbors?
1) following a weight loss program.
2) not super adventurous with food.
3) very special people.
Nothing too complicated, please. I have the flu & don't have much energy for Purim.
I agree we need more information. For instance I use dried fruit and nuts on my diet. But other's don't.
However if they do eat those type of things an excellent source that i have always gotten delivery the next day is www.nuts.com
I order by 4pm M-F they ship that day and I get it the next business day, so you still have time to get it this week.
Many of their products are certified o-K and also certified gluten free (check each individual item's page for certification). Besides nuts and dried fruits, they have freeze dried fruit/vegetables, some sugar free items, some organic, etc. I have been VERY impressed with the quality of their products.
Since you are sick this would let you get something of high quality without having to leave home.
I guess I need to make a phone call to find out more about their food plan. They are late risers, and it's only 7:20 AM here in Shushan :) so I will have to wait a while.
Of course if I call them, they will say, "Don't worry, you don't have to give us anything."
Thanks for input so far.
We have done this many times in the past. Get one of those round plastic sectioned platters that people use for candy (with the round section in the middle). Place baby carrots, baby corn, colorful peppers in long strips, zuchini and yellow squash in strips and chumus in the center. When we did this in the past, people loved it. A nice departure from all the junk and it could also be served at the Seudah. Wrap in plastic wrap or colorful celophane.
