Some people have a heavy fleishig meal. Some believe in a light cereal or toast etc which is what doctors recommend. I’m sure plenty break it on a schnapps or a coffee.
Whats your favorite ta’anis-busting meal?? (Please indicate your gender and approx general age group).March 18, 2011 12:38 am at 12:38 am #796561doodle jumpParticipant

Always orange juice. For years it was drunk with a peanut butter and fluff sandwich, now it’s whatever the kids ask for.March 18, 2011 2:20 am at 2:20 am #796569s2021Member
I was just thinkin of this question as I threw out the emptied carton of Orange Juice from my kitchen table.. Why do so many ppl break ther fasts on OJ? My fam doesnt even buy it regularly..
Whoever broke ther fast on OJ (including me) do u drink it regularly? I dont, but for some reason Im always in the mood after a fast. What is it- the sugar?March 18, 2011 2:20 am at 2:20 am #796570WolfishMusingsParticipant
Don’t know… I’m still fasting (10:20PM). I’m too lazy and tired to actually get up and get myself something to eat.

i brake it on a medium rare rib eye steak and wash it down with a beer or twoMarch 18, 2011 2:51 am at 2:51 am #796576LemonySnicketParticipant
Lemons and Snickers bars. But seriously, toast and tomato soup and an ice cold glass of OJ. After a long fast though some gatorade or powerade does wonders for me cause it rehydrates.March 18, 2011 3:20 am at 3:20 am #796577deiyezoogerMember

I don’t usually drink orange juice (too many calories…) but it is the best thing to break a fast on. Its sugary and sweet, and after the first sip, you almost forget that you fasted the whole day. It’s good because its not fizzy like soda, and it tastes more natural also!March 18, 2011 5:17 am at 5:17 am #796579passion4musicMember
Half the things u guys wouldn’t know but- baked ziti, mini pizzas, samboosaks, borekas, mijredeh, spanach, cuseh. Calsones, penne ala vodaka,mashed potatoes, salad, vegetable soup, maccaroni, cescasounMarch 18, 2011 6:16 am at 6:16 am #796580commonsenseParticipant

Oh, P4M, I see you like to eat light.
I think people drink OJ because its not a complex sugar so it gives you a boost right away while you digest your starches and carbs. That’s my guess as a non-professionalMarch 18, 2011 12:24 pm at 12:24 pm #796584ShrekMember
coffee. 3 Advil. anything after that is dessert.March 18, 2011 12:26 pm at 12:26 pm #796585A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
A cup of coffee. Even instant will get rid of the headache that often accompanies a fast. Then lasagna and cheesecake, the latter because it’s light. The rest of the family include OJ in their break fast.March 18, 2011 1:23 pm at 1:23 pm #796586always hereParticipant
definitely a coffee. sometimes oj. last night: rye toast w/ muenster cheese. after tisha b’av in the country: potato soup. otherwise, it’s whatever I can get my hands on (no fleishigs, tho’),March 18, 2011 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm #796587Boro Park GirlMember
didn’t fast but my family ate baked ziti, omelets, kokosh cake and hamantashen.March 20, 2011 4:09 am at 4:09 am #796588shuliParticipant

Is Chayav Inish related to Popa? Maybe Popa’s sister?March 21, 2011 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #796593
It was gr8 this year not to go into purim starving. Megilla on Purim nite was so much more enjoyable, and I made noises only for homon whereas normally I have loud stomach rumbles all the way thru! This year by megilla I had just about finished eating shalesheedis.
After taanis esther I always break my fast on a few Drambuies. Ice cold. Reaches parts other drinks dont know exist!!March 22, 2011 2:31 am at 2:31 am #796594HealthParticipant

Not bad for a Non-professional; but the professional reason is because it has potassium!March 22, 2011 3:03 am at 3:03 am #796596brotherofursParticipant
PASSION4MUSIC me too!!!! i was going to write those things but i figured no one ever heard of the stuff we eat,:D but theyre sooo yummy!!i break my fast on sambusak, baked ziti, spinach tarts, and other stuff! but maybe i’ll try OJ next time!August 10, 2011 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #796597
I couldnt bring myself to drink a fresh orange juice. Too acidic. I settled for apple juice. Easier on the stomach. With fresh rogalach! Yum. Then main but not heavy meal a little later (with a decaffeinated coffee of course).August 11, 2011 3:01 am at 3:01 am #796598mewhoParticipant

Always a glass of cold water, sipped slowly. Then I wash, &
have some toast,spread w/ hellmans mayo, muenster cheese.
2 cheese omeletes, Israeli Salad, followed by more water, Bentch.
Then I wait an hour and eat again.
