Not going to lie, Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Jesus, good food and family, what’s not to love?
And speaking of food… here are some of my favorite recipes to make for Easter 🐣 I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Lookout Easter Bunny, here are some healthy options for this beautiful Spring Day!
Easter brings to mind bright colors and citrus and floral scents. I love these grain free lemon cookies because they have just the right amount of zest from real vitamin C-packed, lemon goodness.
DID YOU KNOW THAT A MAJORITY OF A LEMON'S HEALTH BENEFITS CAN BE FOUND IN THE PEEL?
No need to adjust your screens, this Golden Lentil Bread is just a bright and golden as it looks. And did I mention delicious too? Try it at brunch smeared with mashed avocado and a little hot sauce!
3. Nothing says Easter like this rawsome Carrot Ginger Soup .
The Easter Bunny isn’t the only one that should be loading up on carrots…
Carrots are one of the most popular veggies worldwide and can be eaten raw, cooked or juiced. Carrots get their signature orange color from antioxidants called carotenoids, which are known for protecting the eyes and skin.
In addition to high levels of vitamin A, most of the benefits of carrots can be attributed to their beta-carotene and fiber content. This root vegetable is also a good source of antioxidant agents (lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin). Furthermore, carrots are rich in vitamin C, D, E, K, and B8, as well as folate, potassium, iron, copper, calcium, magnesium and manganese.
4. So many beautiful colors in Spring and at the Easter table like this Rosemary Beet Hummus
Beets featured in this recipe are not only delicious, but they’re good for you, too! Beets are packed with immune-boosting vitamin C, digestion supporting fiber, and essential minerals like potassium and manganese.
Looking to detox? Beets also help to cleanse your liver, kidneys and pancreas, working to reduce the “bad” cholesterol, and regulate your blood pressure. They combat anemia, fight fatigue, and build stronger bones… and did I mention Beets are an aphrodisiac, too?… oooh la la…
5. More Lemony Freshness with these Lemon Poppyseed Doughnuts
6. Lemon Sandwich Cookies because who can resist that pink frosting!
That deep red color of beets (like in this frosting) comes from a powerful group of antioxidants called betalains. These betalain pigments with high anti-inflammatory properties also help to encourage the detoxification process.
