"Passover" the Easter candy!
Happy Easter! And happy Passover, as well. I hope everyone had a wonderful time with their families during these holidays- even if there were occasional squabbles or tears over who ate the bunny ears or who found more hidden eggs. And now comes the hard part...what do you do with ALL THAT CANDY? Let me suggest that the answer is NOT to spread it out over the next week or two, allowing yourself to grab some chocolate with each pass through the kitchen. Before you know it, the calories will erase any hard work you've done since those New Years resolutions have kicked in. Instead, how about donating them to your local homeless shelter (or wherever you know they might be needed.) I'm not about wasting food, but I also realize that candy kept in the house ends up frustrating weight loss goals!
BOTTOM LINE: Enjoy the holidays, treats and all, but give it an end point and jump right back into focusing on MORE fruits and veggies each day!
