With Easter just around the corner, we’ve all got one thing on our mind: chocolate. If you’re a massive chocolate lover like us, then you may be thinking about how you’re going to survive the Easter period without eating allllll the chocolate and Easter treats in sight.
We have no problem with treating ourselves to satisfy our cravings because to live a longterm, happy and healthy, balanced lifestyle, we know that complete restriction is not necessary. Instead we focus on the importance of eating to feel the best we can, feeding our body, minds and soul (meaning that chocolate is occasionally needed!).
We are fully aware however that over indulging can often lead us to feeling a little off balance, deflated and like we’re back to square one of our health and fitness journeys afterwards. For this reason, and in preparation for an Easter this year that gives us our chocolate fix but doesn’t leave us feeling this way, we have been on the hunt and found the perfect solutions- recipes that turn all your favourite Easter treats into healthier versions!
Here are a selection of our favourite that are full of nutritious ingredients and use limited/no refined sugar or processed nasties. Don’t go thinking they might not taste as good either because these are all absolutely delicious, fun to make and are guaranteed to keep those chocolate cravings and sweet tooth’s of all the family members at bay.
