Easter is fast-approaching (April 20th), but the chocolate-filled Easter Basket isn’t an excuse to derail your spring shape-up efforts! For your readers in need of some healthy Easter inspiration and cooking essentials, I’m passing along further info on Carrington Farms, a comprehensive line of 100% organic, non-GMO health food products.
Easter Brunch can easily cost you thousands of 500 calories, so consider mixing some of the below Carrington Farms products into the day’s festivities for a healthier celebration. Try adding flax seeds to your Easter cookies for a blast of filling fiber, making your Easter morning breakfast casserole with coconut oil to facilitate an increased calorie burn, or adding chia seeds to a refreshing strawberry spinach salad for a shot of quick energy.
Sprinkle Flax on Easter Goodies for a Nutritional Boost
- Carrington Farms Whole Seed Flax is low in saturated fats, with a nutty-buttery flavor and no cholesterol. Whole Flax Seeds are great to add to your favorite Easter recipes, like breads, cookies, and salads. Plus, good-for-you flax provides a boost of heart-healthy omega-3’s, making it the ultimate superseed.
Rethink the Honey Glazed Ham Centerpiece with Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil
- Carrington Farms Liquid Coconut Cooking Oil is a great alternative to traditional oils such as vegetable, olive, canola, and corn oil. The oil retains all of the health benefits of traditional coconut oil, but does not have the flavor or odor of coconuts. Perfect for cooking, sautéing, and baking.
Give Easter Recipes an Antioxidant Makeover
- Chia is high in fiber, has more calcium by weight than milk, and is high in a wide array of essential vitamins and minerals. Plus, chia seeds are one of nature’s highest plant based sources of a complete protein and are extremely high in antioxidants.
