When I think of Easter, I think of uplifting Sunday service, beautiful pastels, racing around hunting eggs, and baskets full of goodies. Once I became a parent, I wanted to keep our Easter traditions alive. What would be the most difficult aspect to tackle? The dinner? Nah I'm pretty savvy in the kitchen. How about the perfect Easter outfits? Nope got those. For me, it was the baskets. I grew up with my basket full of candies and a cute stuffed animal. But with my own kids and newly minted healthier lifestyle, I wanted the baskets to have treats, but healthier ones, and a cute stuffed animals. Okay, I admit it, I have a stuffed animal problem. Don't judge. Anyways, building a better Easter basket, wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. There are lots of better-for-you options out there if you know where to look.
