Healthy Eating Tips for Spring Holidays

Healthy Easter & Passover Eating Tips

Looking for healthy Easter and Passover eating tips for the spring holidays? We polled our dietitians and share some of their simple and stress-free tips below.

And whichever holiday you celebrate, remember to savor the season. Time off from work, gathering with family and friends, and food-centered traditions are also things to celebrate, and enjoy.

  • Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity. So find a work out buddy, or exercise with family! Head outside for a hike, a bike ride, a jog, or a walk.
  • Prep special holiday meals with family or friends. This makes the process more enjoyable.
  • Focus on foods you can only get this time of year!
  • Never show up empty handed. Bring a healthy dish you love to a gathering to give yourself options. Need ideas? Check out this fruit salad recipe to bring for dessert!
  • Aim for making half of what you eat fruits and veggies. Example: use half veggies instead of chips for dips. Or make this cauliflower hummus for your holiday event.
  • Prioritize sleep during the holiday season! Aim for about 8 hours per night.
  • Another spring tip: Alternate between alcohol and water. A good rule of thumb is 1 glass of water for every alcoholic drink.
  • Make a fruit or veggie tray appealing! Cut veggies into smaller, more bit-sized pieces and put them on a nice tray. Or cut fruit into bite-sized pieces in a pretty bowl and make cute fruit kabobs.
  • Don’t show up starving. Have a small amount of protein with a carb before going to a party.
  • Survey the buffet and/or dessert table and decide what is worth it, and what you are ok with skipping this time.
  • Chew slowly! Try to really taste and savor every single bite.
  • Hydrate! For more on hydration, click here to read our blog post with tips and tricks for staying hydrated. We also love these electrolytes to add a little zing to our water!
  • Don’t skip meals prior to the event to leave “more room” for other meals.
  • Always check in with yourself about hunger and fullness throughout the day to minimize mindless eating.
  • Last but not least: When indulging in a treat, slow down and truly enjoy it! Let go of feelings of guilt or failure.

And our best healthy Easter & Passover eating tip of all: Don’t worry about calories. Instead, enjoy spending time with the people you love. Celebrate the joy of this season and love yourself for nourishing your body.
