Healthy Easter Recipes

Hi everyone,

When it comes to eating a healthy diet, Easter is a difficult time for many of us! Saying no to those delicious hot cross buns and comforting chocolate Easter eggs everywhere you go is often a hard task.

Even at times like Easter though, it is important that we still acquire essential nutrients from a variety of healthy foods. If only we could indulge in the traditional tasty treats at Easter and keep a nutritious diet at the same time…Well, this top 7 Healthy Easter Recipes list will help you to do just that!

Using dark chocolate, for example, will still satisfy your Easter chocolate cravings, while also providing you with more healthy antioxidants and less refined sugar, than many typical chocolates.

Antioxidants work to cancel out the effects of chemicals called free radicals, which in high amounts over time can lead to diseases such as heart disease, liver disease and even some cancers.

A lower amount of sugar in your diet will also assist with weight maintenance, and prevent inflammation within you body.

These recipes cover different dietary needs for whatever your health goals may be, including sugar free, grain free, dairy free, and more.
