One of the wonderful things about holidays and special celebrations is the food!

There’s no need to get off track with your healthy habits just because it’s a long weekend. How does a healthy, whole foods Easter lunch sound to you?

With an unusual abundance of chocolate about, I think it pays to whip up a healthy dinner party for your weekend entertaining rather than spending next week in a food coma because you overdid it.

Here’s a nutritious, delicious, bursting with flavour Easter menu that consists of whole, fresh, unprocessed foods that  doesn’t overdo it on the calories.

It uses a number of principles that I teach my clients about when it comes to eating well:

  • Flavour with fresh foods, not jarred sauces or sachets – chilli, garlic, ginger, herbs, spices, lime juice, etc.
  • Use lots of vegetables, make them the star of the show – fill half your plate.
  • Use foods that look the same as when they left the farmer – make the majority of your ingredients unprocessed. Food in its whole state is the best way to eat it.
