The Easter weekend has well and truly kicked off and if you’re on a weight loss or lifestyle overhaul journey at the moment, it’s fair to say that you might be starting to hear all those brightly wrapped chocolate eggs calling your name.  10 food free ways to indulge at eater
Even the most iron willed amongst us seems to falter when it comes to Easter celebrations.  All that chocolate floating around can be used as an excuse to overindulge and throw all your usual weight loss and healthy eating strategies out the window.
While enjoying one of your favourite eggs or bunnies with the kids on Sunday morning, or a delish lunch or dinner isn’t going to derail your weight loss.  Going overboard will not only give you a sore tummy, it’ll also heap on a big helping of guilt which can make it hard work to get back on track come Tuesday morning.
Sticking to your usual diet and including one of two treats is generally the best way to go. Besides, there are plenty of other ways to indulge AND reward yourself for the hard you’ve been putting in, without eating a dozen Cadbury Dairy Milk mini eggs!  Try downloading our FREE Easter Cookbook for some yummy chocolate alternative recipes.
You could also try one of these ideas to keep spirits high over the Easter break, without a single extra calorie in sight.  10 food free indulgences
