Quick Tips for a Healthier Easter:
- Fresh fruit is a great idea because of springtime–make a fruit bowl with melon balls which remind us of little Easter eggs.
- Healthy Candy Substitutes: Small boxes of raisins/craisins/dried blueberries, sugar-free fruity chewing gum, bunny-shaped graham crackers, mixed nuts, fruit loops cereal
- For Kids: give them things they can play with instead of so much candy like stickers, little toys, play dough, travel games etc.
- What to Avoid: Solid chocolate anything, unless it’s dark chocolate and you share with a few other people!
- Make Your own cookies- Low Fat Sugar Cookie Dough:
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Bake at 350 for 10 mins.
- Note: This dough will not be as firm as most, so it may not be best for cookie cutter shapes. Just decorate with icing!
- Many like to make quiches or french toast for Easter. Here are some healthy recipe links: Quiche Lorraine Light, Crust-less Mini Mushroom Sausage Quiche, Sausage Spinach Quiche, and Click Here for Healthy French Toast!

So we’ve all seen the lame commercials that say, “Nutella gets my kids to eat healthy foods”… more like gets your kids to eat more chocolate and sugar and palm oil. Hopefully, if you go through all the hard work to make it yourself, you will want this precious jar to last a while and be less tempted to eat the whole thing in one sitting! haha!
