Self-Care Challenge (Day 87): Making the Holidays Healthy

Easter DinnerHolidays typically call for holiday feasts–a smattering of high-calorie, high-fat, sugary foods.

Easter is no exception. 

The Easter holiday commemorates Christ’s resurrection, but it sometimes also marks the resurrection of unhealthy, pre-Lent eating habits. 

But holidays should not have the right to control our eating habits, nor should they give us an excuse to abandon our personal health goals.

This year, our Easter dinner consisted of short ribs and a colorful spread of roasted vegetables: Brussels sprouts, butternut squash and onions, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Simple and delicious!

When we create menus–whether it’s for a holiday or a typical work day–we have an opportunity to practice self-care. Choosing ingredients and recipes that are in alignment with our goals ultimately helps us achieve them. 

What was on your Easter menu this year?
