Guilt-Free Easter, Tips to help you stay on track,



Guilt-Free Easter, Tips to help you stay on track,
I use to love to indulge on Easter you know some wine, glazed ham or a yummy prim rib and of course those packed fill sugary cadbury creme eggs! Oh ya I would be in a food coma for hours and not to mention the sugar headache that lasted into the next day. These days I have backed off on the foods that no long fit my lifestyle. I do allow myself to have a treat but going over boar isn't an option any longer. Use the tips I posted below to help keep you on track so that you don't go completely off track but you can still enjoy the day.

Easter is a day of celebration and indulgence in wine, red meats, and sugary sweets. While it's easy to go overboard in the Easter feast, it's all about balance. Yes, you are allowed your Cadbury Creme Eggs, but use these tips to keep you from completely falling off your diet plan.

Let's start with the basic and get your water in. I like a little natural flavor in my water so I add a thin cucumber and lemon slice in. This also help with liver-detoxing and digestion.

Let[s face it, there is going to be lot's of stuff like cheese, cracker and Easter candy. Don't allow yourself to sabotage your hard work because come Monday you will wish you had stayed on track. Fill up with veggies or salads the fiber will help fill you and you can stay on track. Just say NO!


Have a juice or smoothies. This is another way to get your fiber in and will help you stick to the plan. Just because everyone is piling their plates at brunch doesn't mean you have too.

You still feel like you need that bread or candy. Have it as your treat after you have eating and filled up on the healthy stuff. Sure we all want to indulge on bread & butter ( my kryptonite ) oh and one or two bites of chocolate caramels, peeps and jellybean seem like they won't hurt you in one sitting think again. Pick one and enjoy.
