Holy Week: menu for every day

ApproachingHoly Week, which in 2021 will be from April 26 to May 1. The longest and most serious Lent of the year is coming to an end. Finally, there is the most severe period – Holy Week.

The Orthodox menu at this time should exclude not only meat and fish products, eggs and milk, but also dishes cooked on fire and even vegetable oil. During Holy Week, it is recommended to eat only once a day.

If you strictly adhere to fasting, then Holy Week, the menu of which corresponds to the church canons, is as follows: on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, dry eating without vegetable oil is allowed, i.e. vegetable food, raw, pickled or canned vegetables and fruits, dried fruits, nuts, bread, honey, juices. The exception is Good Friday, during which complete abstinence from food is required.

But even with such strict fasting, you can prepare delicious, healthy and varied dishes from the permitted products. Read the Holy Week menu from MustHub.
