On the calendar Easter is next Sunday, but by looking at any of the stores Easter should have been shortly after Valentine’s Day. You can’t go through a store without those tempting treats popping out at you. Personally I’m a sucker for the Cadbury mini eggs, those things just call me! I’m sure you have an Easter treat that just screams your name. Leave me a comment below and let me know what it is. Oh my how could I forget that I’m also a SUCKER for peeps, you know the marshmallow ones. Yum, Yum give me some! Okay enough about the unhealthy, let’s talk about surviving Easter without packing on the pounds.
- The Easter basket — instead of filling with candy add some boxes of raisins, cranberry or fruit. If you must do chocolate make it dark. Also add in some non-food treats. Like coloring books and puzzles.
- Healthy Easter Menu
- Main dish — Grilled Wild Salmon
- Side dish — Roasted Veggies — love this one, it’s awesome
- Desert lemon squares. They are fast, easy and delicious.
I hope of a few of these ideas help you out. If you have any additional tips, I would love to hear them just leave them in the comments below.
