Healthy Easter Eating

Easter is a day of family and feasting. Easter celebrating often entails a lot of food preparations, right? Holidays like these always bring good food along with good company.  However, holidays are no excuse are no excuse to not keep health in mind. Here are some tips avoid overeating and to keep you on track during your Easter food binge.

  1. Chocolate is unavoidable around Easter.  Chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, chocolate everything.  Keep in mind that when it comes to chocolate, quality is better than quantity. Indulge in smaller quantities of good chocolate rather than loads of cheap chocolate.  The darker the chocolate, the more antioxidants.
  2. Since you're with family, share.  The more you share your food and sweets means the less chance you have for overeating.
  3. Eating candy on an empty stomach can spike blood sugar levels.  Try to work in some protein or fiber before diving into the sweets.
  4. Stock your fridge with ample delicious, healthy foods so you won’t be tempted to reach for sweets the whole weekend.
  5. As always, exercise.  Just because it is a holiday weekend doesn't mean that you get to take the day off from treating your body right, too.  Easter should be the same as any other day in respect to exercising.  Continue your regular workout regime, running schedule, etc.
  6. Don't deny your cravings.  This may counter-productive in saying “yes, eat sweets.” but studies have shown that denying cravings now causes us to over-indulge later.  Practice moderation.

Pretty easy, eh?  Staying healthy doesn't mean excessively pounding protein blends and eating twigs and leaves all day, every day.  While exercise is important, start where you are comfortable.  Often the best approach to a healthy lifestyle is moderation in all things.  Moderate eating, moderate exercise, etc.  Happy Easter!
