Tips For A Healthy Easter

April 15th, 2017    •  by fizzniche    •   No Comments »

Easter is another holiday that the stores stock with plenty of junk food to fill baskets and children’s tummies.  But you can enjoy this festive celebration without abandoning your diet and loading the kids and grand kids with sugar. All it takes is a little planning.  Make sure the baskets aren’t full of candy and junk and prepare yourself early in the day before any big meals are indulged in.  Instead of giving your child a basket full of candy this Easter why not consider some of the healthier alternatives to the traditional Easter basket:

  • Less-processed treats like these healthier homemade desserts:
    • Vegan chocolate-dipped peanut butter crisp balls
    • Vegan peanut butter patties
    • Paleo dark chocolate nut clusters
    • Vegan carrot cake cupcakes
  • Decorated hard-boiled eggs to use later in one of these healthy hard-boiled-egg recipes
  • Spring flowers like tulips, dahlias, or lilies
  • If you’re going to put a little chocolate in your basket, choose antioxidant-rich dark chocolate that’s organic or fair trade
  • Health and fitness magazines, small gadgets, or DVDs
  • Carrots — they’re the Easter Bunny’s favorite snack, after all
  • Pastel-colored fitness gear like headbands, socks, or workout tanks
  • Especially for kids: books, puzzles, small toys, stuffed bunnies, stickers, coloring books and watercolor paints, magnets, disposable cameras, packets of seeds and gardening tools, plastic eggs filled with glow sticks (to be used later for a glow-in-the-dark egg hunt), Play-Doh or Silly Putty (it even comes in its own egg), or pastel-colored socks

Be creative and have fun with it. We promise the kids won’t event miss the candy!
