Easter Doesn’t have to be Toxic

5 Apr

After reading this post this morning on Robb Wolf’s blog, I got pretty inspired.  I went through my pantry, and decided to see what I could come up with to make up a healthy Easter basket on the spot.  If only I had a little time, I would have included my Laraballs and some “paleo” cookies or muffins.  I can tell you right now, my kids would really enjoy having access to their very own private stash of those treats!!

I was really surprised to see how colorful and enticing this basket turned out…and as you can see my 6-year-old got pretty excited about it too!

Don’t feel pressure to stay with the same-old predictable Easter basket.  If you have a favorite candy that just makes Easter Easter for you, then by all means include it…it’s a holiday!  But also remember that it’s your privilege to make  new traditions for your family.

Happy Resurrection Weekend.

    Great thoughts, Leigh! Sometimes with kids it’s all about presentation! I also love the reminder that it is our “privilege” to make new traditions with our families….so true!
