Happy Easter from Push-ups in Penny Loafers!! I love Easter, it is such a joy to actually take the time to reflect and celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The fam jam and I went to church this morning and had a wonderful time.
Despite the fact my brother and I are getting older, my mother still goes out of her way to do Easter egg hunts for us. Guess she just doesn’t want her babies to grow up quite just yet ;)….Now Easter is also known to be a time of year to indulge on chocolate bunnies and other sugary and fat laden candy. Here are a couple of Easter treat you can have without having to break the scale.
Florida’s Natural Nuggets
These delicious gems are not only 90%, but also contain no preservatives nor artificial colouring or flavourings. They are also gluten free, dairy free, nut free and virtually fat free. The portion controlled little packages these candies come in are perfect to also make sure you won’t overdose on too many. Click here for more information on Florida’s Natural Nuggets.
Probar’s Halo S’mores Bar
I tried these for my first time last Easter and I swear I couldn’t stop eating them. This vegan treat contains unrefined sweeteners accompanied by whole grains to provide more nutrition than your average candy bar. I was quite impressed by the fact the bar contained such small amounts of unhealthy fats for how decadent it was. For more information on Halo Bars, click here.
Hershey’s Whole Bean Chocolate
Dark chocolate had always had the wrap for being healthy, but what about milk chocolate? Hershey’s came up with milk chocolate that is indeed quite nutritious, containing a 4 grams of protein and a whopping 7 grams of fibre. Now don’t go eating five of these a day or anything, they still contain 40% DV of saturated fat and 200 calories per 4 squares, but in moderation this is the perfect treat to indulge in.

Little Duck Organics Tiny Fruits
I will have you know this snack doesn’t only have to be for babies. It is super low cal, only 13 calories per 1/4 cup, with no added sugar; Just all natural bits of freeze dried fruit.
Artisse Organic’s Almond Nougat
Who doesn’t love the sweet ooey -gooeyness of nougat. Artisse organics almond nougat is low fat, nutty, soft and absolutely decadent. For more info, click here.
