Easter is coming and so is the temptation of chocolate Easter eggs – which are not always great if you’re trying hard to stick to your weight loss plan.
One of the world’s favourite Easter eggs has been doing the social media rounds lately, revealing some astonishing figures about the sugar contents.
Rebecca Bilham, who runs a Facebook page called The Little Red Hut Home & Gifts, worked out exactly how much sugar is in a single Creme Egg. Find out more below…
You won’t believe how much sugar is in a Creme Egg!
A Creme Egg is 727kJ per serve (39g) and 1860kJ per 100g (note 1 egg is 39g). The Egg contains 26g of sugar, making it the main ingredient in the egg.
As we know, sugar is addictive and acts as a toxin to our body so having one egg with this large amount of sugar in it can be detrimental to staying at just one egg.
Well, never fear! The Healthy Mummy is here! You can STILL ENJOY healthy eating and some sweet-treats at the same time….AND you won’t miss out on all the family fun this Easter!
For those who are signed up for the April 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge you can choose from a number of delicious, healthy meals in the recipe hub. Try the French Chocolate Cake when you’re enjoying a family meal this Easter, a delicious after dinner treat, or Make These 3 Ingredient Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bites which would make perfect gifts for family and friends rather than the choices found on the supermarket shelves.
But Easter isn’t all just about chocolate, it’s also about getting together with your family and friends and having some time out. When choosing recipes to make for everyone or to take to a BBQ over the Easter break think healthy and easy.
Try the Slow Cooked Leg Of Lamb for Easter Sunday lunch and serve with a great salad or some roast vegetables. If going to a BBQ or a friend’s house for a meal, take a selection of homemade dips or healthy snacks like the ones found here.
Make healthy and conscious choices, if you NEED to have a Creme Egg, have one, but be mindful of whatever else you eat that day. To make your choices more vast, here are 5 healthy chocolate recipes for Easter so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.
