We are just a couple of weeks away from Easter and that means –get-togethers with friends or family and Easter baskets with goodies! So how do you keep up your motivation to eat healthy and exercise around a holiday? We have a few Easter tips for you.
Here are 3 Easter tips from our dietitians:
This will allow you to ensure that you at least have one good option when it comes to sitting down for a meal. We often suggest that you cover half of your plate with non-starchy vegetables. Try making those yummy vegetables interesting for all ages by displaying them in a creative way!
Avoid buying too many sweets.
Attempt to avoid the temptation of buying SO much candy for the kids this year. This year fill their baskets with some non-edible goodies and send them on an eggcellent scavenger hunt to make finding their Easter baskets fun this year.
- Every child will get their own colored eggs.
- Each egg will have a clue and a couple of pieces of candy, leading them closer to THE basket.
- Fill their baskets with necessities or learning opportunities. Here are some of our ideas: sunglasses for summer, flip flops to wear by the pool, puzzles to put together, books to read, a coupon for a Daddy and Me date, or bubbles to chase.
Don’t miss your workout because it’s a holiday. Try to get up early and enjoy the sunrise with an early morning walk or jog. Not a morning person? Grab the whole family for a game of tag at the local park after lunch.
We hope that at least one or two of these Easter tips are helpful for you!
