4 Tips for a Healthy Easter

Easter is a lovely long weekend for relaxing and spending time with family and friends, but it can also strike fear in those who are trying to avoid chocolate and stay on track. Not only do we have to deal with the Easter weekend, but also the weeks leading up to it. It's no surprise that by Easter, we feel like breaking free and abandoning our healthy eating plans.

However, it does not have to be 'all or nothing', you can take a balanced approach to sweet treats this Easter and feel satisfied without feeling guilty. Here are our tips to help you continue your weight loss journey this Easter.


  1. Go for the top shelf: Give yourself one expensive easter egg rather than many small ones. When you spend more money on a special piece of chocolate, you may be more likely to slow down and enjoy it (and maybe even share a little with friends and family). Hollow chocolate also has less sugar than solid chocolate and makes you feel like you're eating more.
  2. A little goes a long way: Add a little chocolate to other foods to get the pleasure of chocolate without all the calories a larger portion would provide. For example, try chocolate-dipped strawberries, melted chocolate drizzled over a fruit platter, or a few chocolate chips added to homemade pancakes topped with fruit.
  3. Include a little of what you like: Do you ever feel like something sweet after meals? Especially dinner? You are not alone. It may be simply a habit or comfort at the end of a long day. It could also be because the meal you just ate wasn’t what you really felt like. It satisfied your biological hunger, but not your taste hunger. They can be very different things. So, thinking about what you really feel like eating when planning your meals can go a long way to leave you feeling completely satisfied after a meal.


We hope you have a Happy and Healthy Easter!
