15 ways to treat yourself this easter without the calories

Most healthy eating plans go out the window when Easter comes around.

Well I know it does for me.

While I don’t plan on forsaking the chocolate this Easter, I do like treating myself less with food these days. My recent health situation has made me more aware of what I’m consuming.

I was recently asked by a friend if I still took part in my Child-Free Tuesday Treat days. I haven’t been sharing my sugar-laden treats on Facebook. And honestly, I still do have the odd treat… but I’ve tried to lessen my sugar intake. Instead of food treats, I’ve gone with an experience instead.

Recently I’ve been treating myself to a healthy lunch and watching one episode of a TV series on Netflix. That has been a treat in itself as I don’t usually stop for lunch.

So far I’ve watched Dirty John and You. I need to start a new series because I find I look forward to watching the next installment of a show and it disciplines me to have a break in my day.

I could just keep working and working and working on my days without the kids. And I’d wolf down those sugar laden treats as my lunch in the hope it would energise me to be productive.

However those child-free days can offer a break for me to do something I enjoy. And so I’ve explored other ways to treat myself instead with less calories!

If you’re wondering on how you can treat yourself without the calories this Easter, I have come up with these suggestions. For me, a treat is something new or an escape from the now. It could be a new ritual I enjoy.
