Happy Easter!

But have you ever thought about the preoccupation we have with chocolate eggs? Commercialism at its best! Enjoy sharing food and good times with family over a celebratory meal!  Go easy on the chocolate though! High in fat and if not the dark chocolate that is high in antioxidants it is high in kj with limited nutritional value. Also try not to be wasteful.....
When i have heaps chocolate left over i do not let it go to waste but make chocolate fudge sauce by combining melted chokky eggs with cream and some brown sugar or i melt the cracked chocolate eggs and combine with marshmallows, macademias, turkicsh delight etc to make my version of rocky road!
Try decorating eggs instead! Use your creativity and they are better for you and a great way of recycling egg shells!

Have a look at this new food model Ms Banks found...FOOD FOR THOUGHT! Promotes more natural and chemical free food! Less processed food and plenty of vegetables...and geting heaps of sleep is very important too!

Enjoy the holiday break!
