Oh, Easter. How we love you! Family time, delicious food, chocolate and of course, an extra long weekend! This time of year it’s hard to resist overindulging when there’s just so much food on offer! We’ve had hot cross buns, crème eggs and chocolate bunnies dangled in front of us for months now. Here at KOJA HQ we’re all about a balanced holistic approach to health and wellbeing, especially over festive periods. We believe you can enjoy the festivities without stuffing your face with sugary, processed junk foods.
Easter doesn’t just have to be about the feasting. Focus on what Easter really means to you. It’s a great time to catch up with family and friends. Or, if you’re not catching up with anyone, take the time to relax and enjoy your time off.
So you ate one little Easter egg and next you’ve eaten a whole packet... Rather than beat yourself up about it, get moving. Go for a walk, do some yoga or hit the gym. Step away from the dinner table and set up a few fun games. Anyone up for some backyard cricket or a family dance party?
Rather than giving the usual shop-bought chocolates, put a bit of love into it and get creative with you Easter gifts. We’ve put together a list of some great DIY recipes that you can turn into gifts for Easter. If you have kids in the family, get them involved in making some painted eggs in little baskets. These kinds of gifts are not only fun to make but also more thoughtful and much healthier that the store bought alternatives.
Distract yourself from the processed and sugary stuff by filling up on real food. Get as many nutrients into your body as possible. We’re talking good fats, lean protein and beautiful fresh salads, fruit and veggies. Whip up a big breakfast smoothie to add some veggies to your breakfast, then prepare a big green salad for lunch. Check out our recipe section for ideas.
Who said chocolate is bad for you? Well, some of it is, but there’s a healthy option! Don’t worry chocoholics you don’t have to miss out. It’s super simple to whip up your own healthy breakfast and sweet treats without the added sugar. Here are a few of our favourite chocolate recipes:
