There are a wide range of uses for matzo meal in Jewish cuisine, and as a result, it is usually in stock at stores which carry Jewish foods. Commercial matzo meal often comes in several grades, from coarse to fine. It is also possible to make your own matzo meal, either from matzo you bake yourself or matzo purchased at the store.

Wellness Tip
Five minute de-stressors
People often say they are "stressed" when their normal coping mechanisms have been overwhelmed. If you need to decrease stress and improve coping, consider taking at least one 5 minute, de-stress break each day, preferably more. You can try different 5 minute activities throughout the week. These include stretching, daydreaming, deep breathing, reading a few pages of a novel, doodling, listening to your favorite song, or going for a quick walk. These mini "me" times provide a quick break and allow you a chance to regain emotional and mental control in difficult situations.
