You've seen the Easter Candy breakdown. You cast your vote for your favorite Easter Candy over on YumSugar...and now you're thinking maybe I should make a healthy Easter Basket. Well you know I am going to second that option. I am going to go so far as to give you some suggestions.
- Carrots - The Easter Bunny likes to share
- Fresh fruit
- Homemade cookies that are filled with healthy ingredients like oats, raisins, dried cranberries, walnuts, and dark chocolate chips
- Bars of Dark chocolate
- Dark chocolate covered peanuts, pretzels, or raisins
- Mini banana bread muffins
- An exercise DVD
- A scented candle
- Hand soap shaped like bird's eggs (my girls love these)
- A jar of all fruit jam
- Granola bars
- A potted plant
- Small picture frames
- Herbal teas and a mug
- A CD of relaxing music
- Silly Putty - it comes in its own egg
- For kids: a coloring book, colored pencils, puzzles, small toys, stuffed bunnies, stickers, play-doh, magnets, disposable cameras, packets of seeds and gardening tools, plastic eggs filled with coins, beads, and books about Easter.
Fit's Tips: I don't believe in denying yourself anything, especially during special family and holiday times. Make sure you do enjoy yourself (and the treats), and try the things you love, just don't go overboard and eat the ENTIRE 12 inch chocolate bunny in one sitting.
