American Jewish Actress Mayim Bialik Hails Passover as ‘Healthiest 8 Days of the Year’
American Jewish actress Mayim Bialik said on Sunday that the Passover holiday is “often the healthiest eight days” of the year for her and her family.
Bialik, a star in the CBS comedy series “The Big Bang Theory,” made the revelation on Facebook and explained that during Passover “we don’t eat out, we cook all of our meals and we use mostly vegetables, fruits, salads, and a few fancy dressings to make meals interesting.”
The 41-year-old mother-of-two added that her ex-husband was a “real Pesach ‘purist’ [who] hated any prepared matzah products” and his influence turned her into a “‘whole foods’ Pesach person” who eats extremely healthy during the holiday.
Passover begins on Monday at sundown.
Last month, Bialik — a distant relative of the late famous Hebrew poet Hayim Nahman Bialik — published a refutation of anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour’s claim that one cannot be a Zionist feminist.
