I am convinced the attitude shown in these types of posts is what makes maintenance work. It is not a matter of not eating... it is a matter of planning. We wouldn't just go out and get in the car to go on a vacation. We would figure out a destination, figure what clothes we need, plan a route, etc. Why should it be any different with our health?

Easter should be so easy! Lots of festive hard boiled eggs for snacking on! Throw away a few of the yolks and you have the perfect protein! Just have to continue to resist the Cadbury Cream and Caramel Eggs for a few more weeks!
We always make a pot roast for Easter Dinner. Instead of red meat I have been making mine with pork tenderloins - delicious! I'll add carrots and baked sweet potatoes (instead of traditional russets) and a large spring greens salad - yummy! Dessert will probably be apple crisp with frozen yogurt. I cut way back on the butter in the crumble topping recipe and don't even miss it.
Now I just have to figure out how to get a healthy meal from the selections provided at the sunrise service breakfast.
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient : all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 1Corinthians 6:12
Being of Jewish faith, Passover has it traditional foods that are served during that week. We cannot have anyhing with preservatives or yeast So everything must be fresh, no canned or frozen items. So lots of salads, cooked veggies, then there is the chicken soup with matzo balls and the potatoes, gefitie fish, and ever lov'in Matzos. I am going to try to stay the same weight and not strive to lose any or gain any. If I gain it will come off the following week because it will be back to regular menus again.

Whether it's Easter, Passover or any other festive occasion. Why don't we plan ahead how we are going to celebrate in a healthy way with food and exercise and share our ideas here.
For our family this is our first low-carb Easter. Dinner is easy. We'll have lots of meat, either chicken or beef, several veggies of different colors and mushrooms with a garlic butter and leave out the starch. Dessert will probably be berries with whipped cream or homemade sugar-free ice cream. The most challenging thing about Easter is definitely chocolate. For our teenage daughter I got one Chocolate Easter bunny. For myself I'll get a very small amount of chocolate, maybe some dark chocolate truffles. My breakfast gourmet treat will be either an omelett or almond meal pancakes with fresh berries. If the weather is good we will plan a hike and/or trailride as a family. If the weather is bad we'll go ice skating or swimming. Birgit
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
