Averting starvation when you have no sukkah

AdinaA | Oct 9, 201107:03 AM

No one chooses this situation, but it happens. Business travel, lunch at the office, and the many people who live in apartments where they have no capacity to construct a sukkah. They manage to get to a sukkat on the chag itself, but schlepping to a sukkah at a shul or at the other end of the campus for breakfast or a weekday dinner is asking a lot.

So, this is a thread for: Tips on How to Eat When You Have No Sukkah

The main thing to remember is that is a world of good things to eat beyons meznonot and hamotzie (baked goods and bread that can only be eaten after a bracha that can only be made inside a sukkah)

Thank heaven for Columbus, when he discovered the new world he discovered quinoa, corn and potatoes.

1. Bake a corn bread made from cornmeal with no flour. Corn cakes are also good.

2. Potatoes of every and all kinds.

3. Most (all?) gluten-free noodles are not mezonot. Ancient harvest is a brand of noodles made from a blend of corn and quinoa flour. Make a marinara sauce and enjoy.

4. Rice is also fine to eat without a sukkah. Curry, anyone?

5. For lunch, think tupperware. Instead of a sandwich, pack a maincourse salad with enough rice, potatoes, corn or quinoa to fill up on.

Bon appetit.
