Israel’s health minister, Yaakov Litzman, called for a boycott of McDonald’s in April, saying “there’s no need to eat junk food, not in our country.” Now he’s chimed in again, this time regarding what not to eat during Hanukkah: “I call on the public to avoid eating sufganiyot, which are rich in fats,” said Litzman on Sunday during a conference to that was led by a professor who heads the National Council for Diabetes. “You can find alternatives for everything nowadays, and there is no need for us to fatten our children with sufaganiyot.”
And you know what? He’s right. Go easy on ’em—have say, one or two or three over the course of eight days—and have a healthy Hanukkah.
And then, when those eight uncrazy and healthy nights are over, head on to Burger King for a Sunfganiking, because that’ll really do the trick and make up for lost time. Burp.
