I’ve curated some online resources for Easter dinner, brunch 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.
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!
If I were preparing an Easter brunch for a group this year, I’d go buffet-style and would include a mix of these yummy and healthy dishes:
- Low carb hot cross buns
- Low carb 3-seed bread
- Sugar-free chia seed jam
- Ham and egg cups
- Prosciutto wrapped asparagus
- Seasonal spring fruit salad
Sugar-Free Easter Treats
Ditch the Carbs has some recipes here for sugar free easter treats if you want to make your own instead of buying the processed, high-fructose-corn-syrup-laden junk from the stores.
