Easter is upon us and for months now we’ve been forced to walk past Easter eggs lining the aisles at the supermarket.
Have you already given in to the temptation and eaten the Easter Eggs purchased for Easter yourself, promising to buy more for the Easter bunny?
Easter is a time of year when you will find yourself out of your normal routine. Time off work, family gatherings, social events and lots of tasty food can lead to over-consumption. Don’t mention those damn Hot Cross buns ending up in our supermarket trollies too!
Try these 5 tips to keep Easter in control……
1 Exercise every day over the Easter break. If you have done a great workout you will be more likely to make better food choices and less likely to over indulge. Remember we have plenty of workouts under the workout tab.
2. Writing down what you eat over Easter will keep you aware of your food intake compared to how much exercise you are doing.
3. Be aware of how much energy an Easter egg contains. One medium Bunny has around 300 calories. That’s a lot of BURPEES!
4. These little chocolate eggs are going to be impossible avoid but it’s important not to enter the supermarket and stock up like it’s the end of the world. Make better choices and eat a good quality, dark chocolate egg. The darker the chocolate the better as dark chocolate is high in antioxidants. Dip strawberries into dark chocolate as an alternative to Easter eggs.
5. Start with eating your healthy food choices first. Then set yourself a limit of how much Easter chocolate you will have the end of your meal as a treat.
DARK CHOCOLATE COATED STRAWBERRIES can be a healthier way to get a chocolate fix. These are a great alternative to Easter eggs but….. eat in moderation.
1 Block 70% dark chocolate or higher
1 Punnet of Strawberries
Step 1 Break dark chocolate into even pieces. Place into a heat proof bowl Step 2 One third- fill a saucepan with water. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to low. Place dark chocolate bowl over saucepan without letting the bowl touch the boiling water. Stir with a metal spoon. Step 3 Line a baking tray with baking paper. Dip one third of strawberry into dark chocolate and place on the tray. Refrigerate until set.
Have a great Easter and we hope to see you sometime over the school holiday break. Remember, do what it takes to avoid being ambivalent this holidays! Take charge and work towards your goals!
