A nutritionist’s guide to maintaining your healthy habits over Easter
This is how to stay on the bandwagon.
Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s Day, Easter… another holiday, another calorie-splurge, right? Wrong. The lead up to these holidays is an exciting time, sprinkled with the promise of being surrounded by decadent and moreish foods – which we should all enjoy in moderation.
But, even with a chocolate here or hot cross bun there, you don’t have to let Easter break your healthy eating habits. Amelia Phillips, fitness and nutrition expert and co-founder of Voome, shares her top tips on how to best avoid over-indulging.
Don’t deprive yourself!
Eating delicious food is one of life’s pleasures! Having a chocolate egg or hot cross bun here or there is absolutely fine, but if you’re someone who can’t stop at just one (like me!) set yourself an Easter egg challenge instead; Each year I pick my favourite bunny (a Belle Fleur Bunny) and save him up for Easter Sunday, but avoid all the mini eggs flying around the office. Its a challenge and I’m up to four years and going strong.
Opt for healthier chocolate
Chocolate lovers rejoice, because it can be healthy. Choose choccie that’s high in cacao (dark chocolate 70% or higher), uses organic ingredients or that’s vegan.
Don’t feel guilty about throwing out excess chocolate
Yes, it’s not good to waste food, but that doesn’t mean you need to eat excessive amounts of chocolate just to clear it out of the cupboards. Share the love – give some to friends, family or even as a thank you to a helpful neighbour. If that doesn’t work, it’s still better to toss it than to overindulge.
