Most Israeli weddings have lots of delicious, diet-friendly foods. You don't have to be on a low carbohydrate diet to enjoy this salmon and "undressed" fresh salad.
At a recent wedding, I did start my eating adventure with this, and there were other low or no-carb foods at the "reception," that first meal. Most weddings, and other grand festive events, there are at least three meals served. That is the equivalent plus of three meals, when you consider calories, protein, fat and starch (carbohydrates.)
- reception, easy to overeat by sampling everything in unlimited quantities
- first course, a protein plus, as large as many of us eat at home as a normal meal
- main course, like a large meal at home
One trick is not to arrive hungry and also remember that there are choices and don't be shy about asking the waiters for plain salad.
