September is an especially meaningful month for the Jewish population, since it signals the beginning of the Jewish New Year or Rosh Hashana, and ends with the holiest of days in the Jewish year, Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement. These Jewish celebrations will occur before we meet again in October, so I'm pleased to let you know that the Jewish diabetic with a Kosher palate can feel confident in consuming very healthy and delicious recipes from "MealLeaniYumm! All That's Missing Is The Fat," by cookbook author Norene Gilletz, one of Canada's national treasures.
