Easter is upon us yet again! It’s important to remember that Easter is not an excuse for a 4-day chocolate feast. In saying that, it is estimated that Australians will spend over $200 million on chocolate at Easter so that means there is a WHOLE lot of chocolate eating going on around the country. If you are watching your weight – or just not wanting to get sick from overindulgence – The Natural Way would like to suggest the following tips to help keep your excess calorie intake to a minimum!
Tip 1 – Only eat chocolate on your allocated ‘treat’ day
Instead of helping yourself to Easter Eggs every day over the long weekend, select Sunday as your only ‘chocolate indulgence’ day. By choosing to only indulge in chocolate on one day, you will enjoy & savour the treat even more!
Tip 2 – Choose Quality not Quantity
If you choose to indulge on Easter Sunday make sure you select good quality chocolate. Don’t buy cheap compound chocolate eggs from discount stores (that usually contain dangerous trans fats like Palm Oil): instead, purchase some high quality chocolate in a small portion size. For example treating yourself to something like the Lindt ‘Gold Bunny Mini Milk 5-Pack’ (50g) is perfect. One bunny is only 54 calories, which means you would have to take a brisk walk for just under 10 minutes to ‘burn off’ the extra energy from the bunny. By controlling the amount of chocolate you eat over Easter, you are better equipped to ‘keep tabs’ on your extra calorie consumption and plan the exercise you need to do according to compensate for your overindulgence
Tip 3 – Change your Easter Gift Giving Rules
Make a rule with family and friends that there is no giving of chocolate this year. Move away from the Easter Egg tradition and start something new. Why not try a fruit hamper, movie tickets, winter pyjamas (as we know that the cooler weather will be kicking in soon) or even a bunch of flowers? Much healthier for all involved!
The over-riding message for a healthy Easter is to be mindful of your chocolate consumption and to get out and exercise in order to compensate for any over-indulgence over Easter.
