Steph and Laura share their secrets on how to enjoy a healthy Easter and eat your chocolate too.

There are many things that come to mind when we think of Easter. But let’s get real; it’s all about chocolate. From Cadbury Crème Eggs to beautifully wrapped mini eggs, nothing screams out Easter more than these seasonal treats.

If you have a sweet tooth (like us), Easter can be your best friend or worst enemy. So, to help you enjoy the mini holiday without overindulging here are our top tips.

  1. Quality of quantity

If you’re going to splurge (and we believe you shouldn’t miss out on the fun) choose dark chocolate. It’s loaded with antioxidants, has been shown to boost heart and brain health, and because it’s bitter, you won’t be able to eat the whole lot.

  1. Be prepared

If your workplace is going to resemble a chocolate egg factory, have your own treats ready to go. Our Bliss Balls (available at Coles) will satisfy the sweetest of cravings – plus, they’ll help keep you energised between meals.

  1. Eat mindfully

A few chocolate eggs and a cup of tea sound like delightful. So, instead of snacking on them just because they’re in front of you, sit down and enjoy a little Easter egg moment. Put the kettle on, eat slowly and savour every bite.

  1. Make your own

The best way to know what you’re putting in your body is to make your own treats. And because we don’t believe in FOMO, we suggest making the KIC Radical Rocky Road. It’s colourful, delicious and good for you. Available over at our KIC program.
