It’s time to make that last-minute grocery list and start prepping for your Easter feast! But before you reach for the deviled eggs and ham, here are some healthy, nutritious, and fun food options that you should definitely consider this Easter… plant-based foods! Dr. Vikki Petersen, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Chiropractor and Functional Medicine doctor, highlights how you make easy and delicious plant-based food swaps for your Easter brunch, lunch or dinner.
Here are Dr. Vikki Petersen’s top 3 plant-based Easter food ideas to enjoy this Easter holiday:
#1: Ditch the eggs
Avoiding eggs doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy brunch with a frittata. Below are two recipes that are delicious, can be served at Easter Brunch with no one being the wiser. The first substitutes a product called Just Egg (you can also try Vegan Egg) and the second, surprisingly use bean flour. They’re both delicious!
#2: Enjoy some dairy-free chocolate!
Chocolate is rich in sugar but the cacao bean actually is rich in antioxidants and quite healthy for you. Bring a chocolate chunk banana bread to brunch on Easter and for a chocolate dessert, consider making your own chocolate bark. The recipes are below and there are many chocolate-based recipes on the same site that have zero sugar or dairy products.
#3: Color-up your salad!
A healthy salad is typically part of Easter dinner and you can bring your own which is more of a meal in a salad. This robust salad has protein, greens and other colorful vegetables that will leave you feeling satisfied and proud of how healthy you just ate.
