Enjoy a low carb Easter!

As we head into the Easter weekend I’ve got a few tips and suggestions for getting through the chocolate onslaught without completely sabotaging your good healthy efforts.

I’ve curated some online resources for Easter dinner and sweet treat Easter goodies.

Typically, it isn’t the actual dinner that gets us into trouble but the chocolate, candy, snacking, desserts and fancy cocktails that really do a number on us.

I’ve included links to recipes for low carb alternatives that are delicious and nutritious. It is possible to indulge and enjoy without giving in to all temptations and spiking your blood sugars.

Dinner is usually comprised of turkey or ham and some veggies, which you can keep mostly low carb. I recommend cauliflower mash instead of potatoes and this low carb stuffing for your turkey.

If you go the ham route make sure to get one that is all natural and plain – not already injected with sugars or maple syrups and flavourings. Try it with this cranberry apricot glaze that you prepare yourself.

The veggies will be no problem, stick to more above ground veggies and you’ll be fine. This brussel sprout and bacon recipe would be a good addition to any Easter table. I might try this recipe for Garlic-Roasted Green Beans Recipe with Shallots and Almonds, sounds yummy!

For dessert here are a few low carb cakes that might appeal:
Low carb carrot cake
Almond and orange cake
Chocolate heaven cake

Ditch the Carbs has some recipes here for sugar free easter treats if you want to make your own instead of buying that processed, high-fructose-corn-syrup-laden junk from the stores.

Happy Easter everyone.

With sweetness,

 

 

P.S. Just a quick reminder that my Release & Renew Spring Cleanse is coming up after Easter. We start on Monday, April 24th and go for 7-Days. We have a great group registered so far and I’d love to have you join us. It’s all new and completely online. Kick off the spring season with lightness, energy, health and vitality!
