Why no meat on Friday?
For Orthodox Christians, fasting is an important part of our lives. Fasting allows us to shift our focus from simply nourishing our body to nourishing our soul. By resisting the desires of the body and abstaining from food, we can reorder our lives and focus on our faith. The Orthodox Church has established certain days as fast days to help direct us. During most weeks, Wednesdays and Fridays are fast days. On these days, we are to abstain from consuming meat, among other foods. Our Friday menu items observe this important discipline for Orthodox Christians.
