The Hunt for a Healthier Easter

It’s getting to that time again: Easter. But before you change into your Easter bunny outfit, don’t forget to feed the good bacteria in your colon. We know, the temptation is hard to resist, and portion control at a buffet can be incredibly difficult. And then there’s the social pressure. But don’t worry, we will help you get through the holidays. Here are our top five tips for a healthier Easter.

1. Aim for moderation
If your body doesn’t tolerate a certain type of food, don’t eat it just because it’s Easter. Go ahead and enjoy some of the yummy foods that you normally wouldn’t eat, just don’t go overboard. If your stomach is happy, so are you. Also, it’s ok to be picky. Only eat the stuff you really love. You don’t have to taste everything.

2. Eat slowly
This is especially important at Easter when there is so much food around. Chewing slowly will allow you to enjoy the massaged kale and the avocado rose that you’ve spent hours preparing. Also, by thoroughly chewing each bite, you are more likely to stop eating when you’re actually full.

3. Be a giver
If you’re invited to someone else’s house for Easter dinner, offer to contribute something. Your healthy addition will be much appreciated, even if it’s just a couple of homemade marzipan bunnies or a basic fruit salad. We are all about adapting recipes and trying new things. This year we will substitute the eggnog for mango lassi, and fill the Easter eggs with homemade baby easter chicks with almond paste.

4. Start your day with apple cider vinegar and water
Start off clean and begin the day by having a big glass of water and about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar will help improve insulin sensitivity, heart health, and has been found to increase absorption of minerals. A glass of water after waking up will activate internal organs and help the body to remove toxins. It’s also a great way to improve digestion. Simply put, you’ll be more than prepared for this year’s Easter egg hunt.

5. Get a good night’s sleep
You deserve it. If sleeping in is not an option, take the whole family and all of your friends for an Easter walk. Preferably a long one and ideally every day. We all know that deviled eggs and smoked salmon taste better after a long walk. That’s the oldest trick in the book.
