Introducing: The New Jewish Food Hero Tagline

Introducing the new Jewish Food Hero tagline

For the first eight months of Jewish Food Hero’s online life, our tagline was “Healthy First, Jewish Always.”

While this tagline was factually accurate, it didn’t feel as inspirational as I wanted it to be, nor did it represent the variety of religious affiliations participating in our conversations and the full range of how I wanted to impact women’s lives.

Today I’m excited to share the new Jewish Food Hero tagline, and tell you more about what it means for you.

How to Tell Your Host About Your Food Preferences: A Fill-in-the-Blank Template

Our choices about what food we eat—and don’t eat—are among the most personal ones we make (parenting is another one).

Your family and friends may not share your healthy eating philosophy. Though it may not matter to you if they do, differences in eating can cause people you’re sharing meals with to worry or feel uncomfortable. It may bring up their own insecurities about their eating habits or what they don’t understand about healthy eating.
