Ok, so I will be fasting for 25 or so hours for Yom Kippur as mentioned in this question: http://paleohacks.com/questions/150541/what-to-eat-before-a-25h-fast-yom-kippur. I think I've pretty much figured out what to eat beforehand but what are the best kinds of foods to break it with? Some of the foods that the synagogue will be serving look ok but I don't think that the ok items will actually be gluten-free and not willing to risk my sensitive stomach.
Here is what I had after doing a 24hr fast with HIIT plus some hiking plus some play:
About 4 oz of each: beef (burger), turkey/chicken slider (with finely minced onion and apple and topped with lots of spicy homemade guac), sardines (canned and put some spicy mustard on), and three eggs scramble (kid didn't eat breakfast so it went in the mix).
Sides: about a cup of home fermented veggies (parsnips, leaks, and cabbage mix), paleo coleslaw....wife made this with homemade mayo, cabbage, grated carrots, cilantro, and a bit of mango. Then a half a banana that my kid didn't eat after pealing it ....oh, and a couple handfuls of mixed nuts (cashews, almonds, pistachio...)
Cup of green tea with coconut cream to finish off. Meals like this are what make fasting worth while. :)
Hi again. :)
After answering my question about what to eat before the fast I think I have an answer for how to break the fast.
I usually have tea and crackers or cookies (could make them paleo friendly) right after the fast and only an hour later have an actual meal, which would probably be some kind of meat and veggies.
Just try not to eat too quickly.
We potluck with our havurah to break the fast. There's usually dairy/pareve based fare like deviled eggs, pickled herring, veggies and dip, salads that are fine to eat. I stay away from the bagels and cake.
I always take something I can eat, especially because DH likes to stay to the bitter end and we are always last to arrive at the potluck. Sometime what we bring is the only thing left to eat!
