The Pre-fast Conundrum
Other years the question of what to eat for the pre-fast meal is a settled one: it has to be dairy. This year there are two options available: meat or dairy. But because it is Shabbos you are also limited as to what foods you can eat, since you can't cook something fresh. So far most of my family is leaning towards having cold cut sandwiches. Yet, when I think about it, it seems very weird to be going into a fast on turkey roll and corned beef. On the other hand, dairy sandwiches don't seem like they would have enough protein/carb staying power to get you through the fast.
