Healthy Ideas for Easter

We all know the dreaded Easter chocolate eggs and jelly beans will be coming our way. So, what are some ways to enjoy this Easter with our health in mind? I have compiled some tips for the upcoming weekend!

Bunny cake I made a few years ago!

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!
