Who doesn’t love opening an Easter egg and finding that delicious calorie filled treat inside??

Follow these different tips this Easter and you might find yourself feeling not so quilty on Monday morning!

 

Hoppy Eating!

  • Size does matter
    • Instead of eating the biggest chocolate covered egg, choose a few smaller, individually wrapped eggs. 
  • Go for quality- not quantity
    • Go for the dark chocolate Easter eggs this year- studies show you eat less dark chocolate because the taste is stronger and more satisfying.
  • Don’t just put candy in the kids Easter baskets this year
    • Mix their Easter baskets with little candy and more non-edible items such as; stuffed Easter bunnies, games, movie passes, etc.
  • Don’t overbuy Easter candy
    • Buy just enough to fill the little ones Easter baskets.  Extra candy means candy lurking in your kitchen cabinets for the next few months waiting to be eaten by you!
  • Have a real Easter egg hunt and hold other outside activities for the kids
    • This will get you and the kids outside and moving!  Have the kids hunt for hard-boiled eggs or wooden eggs, that way they won’t be hunting eggs just for the high-calorie candy that is inside.
    • Have an Easter-egg coloring booth where the little ones can decorate their eggs they find.
    • Have an outside picnic.
    • Create fun outdoors games like pin the tail on the donkey and Red Rover.

    Thanks for the recommendations shared inside your blog. 1 extra thing I would like to convey is that weight reduction just isn’t about going on a celebrity diet plan and trying to minimize as much weight that you can in a couple of days. The most powerful method to burn fat is by making use of it slowly and gradually and right right after some simple recommendations which can allow you to create probably the most from a attempt to lose weight. You might recognize and be following a number of of these suggestions, nevertheless reinforcing information and facts by no means affects.
