4 Ways to Enjoy a Balanced Easter Diet

One of many joys of Easter is catching up with family and friends, but when those delicious Easter temptations hit, it can throw a curveball into anyone’s health journey. But with a little planning, it’s possible to enjoy the festivities of Easter, just with more balance…

1. Be chocolate smart, enjoy dark chocolate with less sugar

Easter wouldn’t be Easter without enjoying some chocolate! But with Easter eggs and chocolate gifts in abundance, it can be all too easy to overindulge. For those mindful of health, why not be chocolate smart by opting for high-quality dark chocolate? Dark chocolate often contains less sugar in comparison to milk and is a source of plant chemicals called flavanols which have antioxidant properties.


2. Keep energy high and hunger at bay with a balanced breakfast

Easter energy is essential, not only for that easter egg hunt, but for prepping the house, food and children. Enjoying a nourishing breakfast will provide the fuel to carry us through a busy day. A breakfast containing protein and fibre can aid with satiety which may help us to make better food choices later on. Try poached eggs, with avocado on toast, or a bowl of overnight oats with yoghurt and seeds.


3. Re-define Easter treats

It’s totally possible to enjoy healthier Easter treats that the whole family will love, and these Easter fruit skewers could be a winner. They make a refreshing and delicious addition to your brunch or could be enjoyed as a snack. Using a cookie cutter, simply cut melon or even pineapple into Easter shapes such as bunnies and eggs. Add to skewers and enjoy!


4. Minimise that Easter stress with Panasonic Kitchen appliances

Avoid that holiday stress by using a helping hand in the kitchen. Panasonic Kitchen appliances make hosting relatives and friends a breeze. A double-shelf combi oven can cook your Easter lamb, new potatoes and spring vegetables to perfection. Impress your guests with homemade bread and Easter cakes. Whip up some freshly squeezed juice using a slow juicer, for a nutrient-packed refreshing beverage to enjoy at Easter brunch.
