Easter is probably the unhealthiest time of the year and while I don’t eat Easter eggs, my sisters certainly do. But throughout all the sugar and chocolate that surrounds me I am able to resist the temptations.
Easter doesn’t have to be a time of consuming too much chocolate. It’s fine to have a little bit of chocolate but the amounts people actually do consume is a bit of overkill. For me I stick to real eggs, and home-made sugar-free treats for my mum and me.
Easter doesn’t have to be a sugar fest so here are some easy things you can make to have on Easter:
While eggs aren’t sweet they taste amazing. Eggs are full of protein and fats which help you to feel full.
You can use a base recipe, I use an I Quit Sugar recipe, and add or replace ingredients as I wish. You can mould them into whatever shapes you like, and they taste like the real thing.
After I’m finished typing this blog I’m heading straight to the kitchen and making a mini tart. Tarts taste amazing and it feels good to be able to have one without having to consume sugar.
- Homemade chocolates
I Quit Sugar have a great Easter egg recipe that aren’t chock full of sugar and artificial sweeteners and are delicious.
- Hot Cross Buns
Hot cross buns are an Easter favourite, so why miss out when you can make your own? I Quit Sugar make a great alternative to the sugar laden prototypes you often find in the shops and at bakeries.
You can have a safe, sugar-free and happy Easter with a little effort.
