Egg-cellent Tips For a Healthy Easter
Easter weekend is fast approaching. Yup, the chocolatiest time of the year is here! We’re talking chocolate eggs and sticky hot cross buns … Yum!
Easter is the perfect excuse to tempt even the strongest of wellness warriors into over-indulgence. Sure, egg eating contests and buns swimming in butter are a one way ticket to weight and cholesterol gain. And, as we all know, the extra kilos don’t disappear with the Easter bunny…
However, there’s no need to lock yourself in a Paleo cage for the weekend. Well-balanced food in moderation is key to long term health and wellbeing.
A good rule of thumb to live by is the 80:20 rule, whereby we eat and live healthily 80% of the time, and allow ourselves to eat less nutritious food that we enjoy the other 20%. But also, this ratio isn’t set in stone; if a 90:10 or a 75:25 works better for you, then follow that.
We wish you all a happy, healthy, and safe Easter!
