Easter Recipe Round-up

Another holiday is upon us; Easter Sunday is this upcoming weekend.  Having a plan going in and changing your mindset around any holiday is the key to successfully surviving it without derailing your health and fitness goals.  If you are hosting, it is much easier to control the options you will have for food.  If you are heading to a family member or friends house, make sure you bring at least two options of food that you want to eat.  Ideally one would be protein based and the other a vegetable.  Then you can fill in around that.

Your mindset going into any holiday or event is critical.  Viewing them, as an excuse or “pass” to eat processed junk foods and lots of sugar will only set you up for failure.  We all know that sugar is a slippery slope to go down.  Veering off the path of supportive nutrition too much just makes the days/weeks to follow that much harder.  I’m not saying that you need to completely avoid sugar or your favorite foods; I only want you to bring awareness to the choices you decide to make.  Know yourself, your triggers, and your goals and make the decisions that are right for you.

To make this a bit easier, below are some grain-free, gluten free, recipes for the upcoming Easter holiday.
