Here’s a new “weigh” to “measure” up with your health-conscious and dieting friends. Let them “have their mishloach manos and eat it, too,” as they indulge in these grilled vegetables, cabbage salad, water, dried pineapple, and sugar-free candies, packaged in neat cylinders with adorable labels. Other practical, nutritional ideas can include whole wheat muffins, soups, cut-up fruit and veggies, and nuts. Maybe this will be the start of a revolution against the overabundance of nosh that has become the Purim norm!
You will need:
2 bottles Voss water
2 1½x10-inch (4×25.5-cm) plastic cylinders
2 4½-inch (11.5-cm) square containers
“tape measure” ribbon
This packaging makes sending perishable foods very easy, as no further wrapping is required.
