Did you splurge on Easter eating?!

You splurged on Easter?  Do this to get back on track….

1) Eat regular meals-starving yourself will only lead to bingeing.  Sadly, most people feel the need to punish themselves with starvation after a holiday because they feel guilty for overeating.  Unfortunately this will only slow down metabolic rate.  Don’t walk in guilt, instead walk in victory and nourish your body with healthful food.  

2) Munch on cucumbers and celery.  These vegetables are natural diuretics and they help rebalance the body’s electrolytes.  They are also low in sugar so they won’t spike insulin levels.

3) Drink peppermint tea (hot or cold), it helps banish bloating and gas.  Tea is also packed with powerful antioxidants (EGCG) that help boost metabolism.   

Weekend spring time healthy snack the entire family will enjoy:

Santorini Lemon Feta Dip with Kalamata Cucumber Relish with Pita Chips

At only 126 calories, it’s the perfect weekend snack!  It’s also great with a iced peppermint tea.  Get the recipe here!
