Do you always include two types of protein per meal? What counts as a protein?
For instance, Fri night can be fish, soup, and chicken.
But what do you serve Shabbos day besides cholent?July 2, 2015 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #1091005
Liver, deli.July 3, 2015 2:30 am at 2:30 am #1091006
Hummus, quinoa, edamame, artichoke.
Plenty of protein.July 3, 2015 2:38 am at 2:38 am #1091007JosephParticipant
goofus, only with kosher ingredients.July 3, 2015 2:42 am at 2:42 am #1091009
More likely your meat is not kosher as compared to any of the foods I listed.July 3, 2015 2:47 am at 2:47 am #1091010JosephParticipant
As a vegetarian, you assume eating any meat is not kosher.July 3, 2015 3:04 am at 3:04 am #1091011
Nope. Kosher is defined by the Torah she’baal peh. Meat can be kosher, but more likely your meat is not kosher as compared to any of the foods I listed.July 3, 2015 3:13 am at 3:13 am #1091012
Sometimes, my wife will serve a chicken salad.July 3, 2015 3:18 am at 3:18 am #1091014
Sometimes, the chicken is not in the mood for salad.July 3, 2015 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1091015from Long IslandParticipant

“Meat can be kosher, but more likely your meat is not kosher as compared to any of the foods I listed.”
I hope you are washing you artichokes real well. They are often infested.
Beside which kosher is kosher. I trust an Eid Echad based on the teachings of the Torah SheBaal Peh.July 3, 2015 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #1091018catch yourselfParticipant
Well, if the chicken is not in the mood for salad, it does not have to eat. But it should not expect any dessert, and there will be no eating after the ????? until the next meal.July 5, 2015 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #1091019mik5Participant
Looking at this thread makes me SOOOOO hungry. 🙂July 5, 2015 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #1091020☕️coffee addictParticipant
btw artichokes are kosher if you get the pickled artichoke form “season” the company, not the store or artichoke bottomsJuly 7, 2015 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #1091021blubluhParticipant
Beans are a good source of protein, even when not part of chulent.
Of course, not everyone wants multiple simmering pots sitting on the stove in the summertime (beans can takes hours to cook well), but they can be prepared earlier in the week and served chilled, too.July 8, 2015 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1091022flatbusherParticipant
Not sure if you are asking for health reasons or for some minhag that requires two proteins at a meal. Cold cuts may be from meat but with all the additives plus the seasoning it probably would not be considered a good source of protein. Shabbos morning protein would include gefilte fish, eggs/liver and some people serve cold chicken or turkey breast. I don’t know if I would consider cholent to be a good source of protein unless it’s all beans, but mostly it’s made with barley and potatoes as well.July 8, 2015 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #1091023
I ask because I served a guest a meal with only one protein (chicken), and s/he told me afterwards that they were hungry, because they’d never been to a Shabbos meal where only one protein was served.July 8, 2015 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #1091024
I’ve noticed since then that most people do serve two types.July 8, 2015 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #1091025
That was rude. If I were a guest, I would smile, say everything was delicious, and go crash someone else’s house for cholent.July 9, 2015 12:00 am at 12:00 am #1091026flatbusherParticipant
it is rude. was there not enough food? protein doesn’t fill you up, carbs do. Of course, large quantities of either will do the trick. But what kind of guest talks like that?July 9, 2015 12:25 am at 12:25 am #1091027from Long IslandParticipant
Sorry, I only serve one protein, with tons of salads and perhaps a kugel or two. No one has ever walked away from my table hungry.July 9, 2015 12:41 am at 12:41 am #1091028
Or, your guests are too polite to tell you that they’re still hungry.
