Yom Kippur: Pre-Fast Meals

Meal of Cessation (Seudat Mafseket)

Jews traditionally eat a Meal of Cessation - called Seudat Mafseket - before the Yom Kippur fast. My family eats a meat meal for lunch, and then a hi-carb dairy dinner directly before the fast. The meat menu includes low-salt vegetable soup, breaded chicken, potatoes and dessert. The dairy menu includes egg souffle, whole wheat bagels with various spreads and fruit salad.
