Easter is just around the corner, and although the holiday typically consists of chocolate – and lots of it – there’s no reason why you can’t be healthy too! By making more informed decisions about what you consume over the Easter break, by the end of the weekend you’ll be feeling bright and energized instead of stuck in a chocolate-induced coma.
Switch to Dark Chocolate
Did you know dark chocolate is considered a superfood? It’s rich in antioxidants that have been shown to lower blood pressure and boost overall cardiovascular health, mainly due to the high amount of cocoa extracts. Switching from milk chocolate to dark chocolate this Easter is definitely one step in the right direction.
Find Healthier Treats
Sure, the Easter Bunny loves chocolate, but he also loves carrots. Of course, carrots aren’t anywhere near as exciting as chocolate, but they’re still Easter themed, so why not enjoy carrots dipped in hummus or tzatziki as a healthy treat – especially if you’re hosting an Easter themed party?
We’d all love to curl up on the sofa indulging in our Easter treats, but why not find a way to keep active during the Easter weekend? Hosting an Easter Egg Hunt will keep everyone on their feet, ensuring you meet your step count target for the day. Or, why not walk off the chocolate once you’ve indulged? Take an Easter Sunday stroll around your neighbourhood and breathe in the fresh spring air.
