I love Easter and the kids also love talking about the Easter bunny and having their Easter Egg hunt, but this year, we are making it so much less about bunnies, and more about Jesus! After all, this was the time He gave up His life for us! He sacrificed so much just so we can live life and be forgiven and not live life in condemnation.
So today, my husband, myself, and the boys are going to church to learn more about the story behind Jesus sacrificing His life and dying for us on the cross and his resurrection on Easter.
Along with learning about Jesus, we are keeping this Easter healthy! Don’t get me wrong, I let my kids have fun and enjoy a little chocolate, but are in no way are going overboard! We have taught them that Easter is not about celebrating food and candy… it’s about Jesus and us being together! So we will make Easter eggs today and enjoy eating hard boiled egg whites (my favorite) and yes, I add a little Sriracha to mine!!
We also have an Easter egg hunt and in those eggs are organic fruit snacks, coins, confetti, and small toys!
With the boys Easter baskets, we add items like coloring books and crayons, crayons for the bathtub, books and DVD’s, and outdoor toys like sidewalk chalk, kites, and bubbles!!
For us mommas and parents, lets keep it healthy!!! We don’t have to fall off track with our own fitness!! Getting that workout in first thing in the morning will help from making the excuses of not having time and being so busy planning for our family get togethers!
Also, those liquid calories really add up!! Try to replace the sugary drinks with water! Then you have more room for food 🙂
When our family gets together, we do love to eat!! Its all about making healthier choices and portion control! Instead of digging into my chocolate peanut butter eggs that I would do before I was on my fitness journey, I make a healthy alternative and make other treats that wont keep you feeling guilty!!
Another favorite dessert that I make for my family every year are my SKINNY PEANUT BUTTER BROWNIES!
If you are looking for some healthy recipes for your get family together, here are some of my favorite horderves and side dishes!
I hope you all have a wonderful, safe, and healthy Easter!! Stay strong, stay on track, and don’t lose site of those goals!
