Don’t let the Easter weekend get the best of you. The Easter dinners, Easter desserts and of course all the chocolate, it’s all eggs-tremely tempting, if you pardon the pun.
However, there are some things to keep your health and fitness in mind. Ensuring you don’t get too caught up in the festivities, here are some tips to remember whilst enjoying the long weekend.
DON’T PURCHASE IN BULK
If you’re organised it may already be too late for this one, but try not to purchase large quantities of chocolate. There’s nothing more tempting than snacking on leftover Easter eggs, so avoid temptation and don’t buy in bulk.
OPT FOR WHOLE GRAIN HOT CROSS BUNS
We all love hot cross buns, I literally just finished devouring one. However, whole grain anything is always better for you. Whole grain hot cross buns contain more fibre, vitamins and minerals. Plus, they’re more filling!
STAY BUSY WITH ARTS AND CRAFTS
Easter can be a busy time of year, so go with it. Keep moving this easter and you won’t even realise you are burning off those extra calories.
If you’ve gone away this easter, go for a hike and search for the Easter bunny with the kids. Cook up some Easter recipes, set up some Easter decorations and on Easter Sunday there’s always the Easter egg hunt!
DON’T SKIP MEALS
It can be easy to get caught up in the Easter festivities and forget to eat nutritious meals. Ensure you’re still consuming regular meals and if you do overindulge, don’t skip meals to try and make up for it.
Skipping nutrient-filled meals will just give you cravings in the evenings, and you know what you’ll reach for? That’s right, leftover Easter eggs – don’t do it!
EVERYTHING IN MODERATION
We can all get caught up in the festivities so if you do overindulge don’t get down on yourself, Simply get back on the horse and keep moving!
