Healthy Recipes and Tips for Easter

Make your celebration healthy!

If you expect that the Easter bunny will be visiting your house this weekend, you may want to begin preparations now to make it a healthy and happy celebration.  Plan your shopping list to include plenty of fresh spring veggies, then follow these tips to make the day both diet-smart and fun for everyone.

4 Tips to Enjoy A Healthy Easter

  • Skip the high-fat filling in deviled eggs and fill the egg white with hummus instead.
  • Add inexpensive but healthy trinkets to the kids’ Easter baskets.  Gifts like sidewalk chalk and jump ropes will encourage outdoor physical activity.
  • Get in the spirit, but keep it healthy.  Celebrate less with chocolate and more with carrots.  Carrots can be baked, roasted, mashed, and of course, eaten raw.
  • If you visit a brunch or buffet, remember to use North Memorial Registered Dietitian Pat Tyra’s advice for portion control.
