Eat a good breakfast

Be sure to have a good, healthy, filling breakfast to start your day. Not only will it keep you fuller longer, but it will kick your metabolism into gear and  help you burn some of those extra calories. Try a nice bowl of oatmeal with fruit or a veggie omelette.

Portion Size

Portion size is one of the most difficult things during holidays.  Make sure you pay attention to the amount you are putting on your plate. Remember moderation is key and  carbohydrates should be the least amount on your plate.

Move around 

Take a walk after you eat or hunt Easter eggs  with the kids. The more you move it will help the food to digest and keep you from being sluggish.

 

We hope you find these tips helpful! Happy Easter!

Make sure you eat healthy this weekend. If you go out to eat choose a salad with dark greens instead of  the tempting bread or fries.  Also ask for a vinaigrette dressing instead of a cream based one. Be sure to drink lemon water, instead of sugar loaded and carbonated drinks.  Drinking lemon water provides enzymes and aids in digestion. Eat plenty fruits and vegetables. Pay attention to your portions! Moderation is key, Especially with sweets. Try these easy healthy tips and have a wonderful weekend!
