Hi, Dana,

It's a little late for Passover, but for those who like matzo ball soup...

Aviv makes a wheat bran matzo that has a lower net carb count than ordinary matzo. The total carb count is 21 grams per sheet, including 6 grams of fiber. With the net count down to 15 grams, I used two sheets to make matzo balls for my husband, son and me (a regular batch for my Seder guests) and the recipe (from an Atkins cookbook) yielded enough for us to have it three times - small portions, of course. Actually, they came out so good that I might just make them this way for everyone next year and just not say anything.

Aviv is an Israeli company. I bought the matzo at Mrs. Green's - you know them as you did a book signing there. I don't know who else carries it, but it's worth looking for. We used them at the Seder, as well.

Great info, Marilyn! Thanks!
