I’m a mother, nutritional therapist and author who has been sharing recipes to help you get the glow back for the last 8 years...
“How can I be healthy at Easter?” is the big question I get asked at this time every year, so here are my favourite healthy Easter recipes. I’ve got you gluten-free chia hot cross buns, slow-roast lamb with a healthy twist and two choc-tastic alternatives to traditional Easter eggs! The full recipes are below for you, and here’s a little taster…
Making these little eggs adds that extra special touch, and mine are free from dairy and refined sugar. I use desiccated coconut for a luxurious taste, then fill the eggs with crunchy pistachios for extra goodness.
I love making this as a gift for friends and family, and this year I’ll get Shay involved to top the chocolate with colourful freeze-dried raspberries.
Spiced with cinnamon, clementines and sultanas, my hot cross buns are made with chia seeds – the extra protein means that eating just one is really satisfying. What’s more, they’re gluten-, dairy- and grain-free.
Slow roast lamb is one of my all-time favourite dishes because it’s so tender and delicious. My recipe works with salsa verde, peas and butter lettuce, or you could add your own healthy twist with steamed spring greens and roast sweet potato.
Happy, healthy Easter!
