Hi everyone! I hope you all had a happy Easter! So excited to finally update the blog again. Life has been crazy and my time for blogging has been shorter than I would like. However, I am back again!
I love absolutely everything about Easter. I love going to church in the morning for an amazing service, dinner with the family, decorations, Easter outfits, Easter baskets…basically everything. I was reminiscing all the fun activities I used to do as a kid for Easter…like dying eggs and the Easter egg hunt and I miss those days! They were so much fun.
As always, earlier in the week my thoughts were wandering to what we will be eating on Easter Day and what I can make to add some healthy food to the menu! Like most holidays, it was a huge Italian feast because we could not forget the pizzagaina and wheat pie!!
Since I recently recruited my mom into eating gluten-free with me due to the enormous benefits I have seen in my life, it was all the more reason to cook a gluten-free bread to serve, since we did not indulge in the Italian bread. Not only is this bread gluten-free but it is also just a low-carb alternative to regular breads. This was the first time experimenting with this bread and it came out delicious! I added rosemary for extra flavor but it definitely is not necessary.
Here is the recipe:
1 tsp salt
One of my other favorite items from Easter dinner was my Clean Raspberry Punch. Ok everyone, so even though I only really drink punch on holidays, I was determined to find something healthier for this Easter than my mom’s annual Easter punch which is delicious but filled with sugar… Sorry mom! I hate the idea of drinking my calories and having all that sugar in a drink. This punch was a hit and everyone seemed to love it! I made mine non-alcoholic but you can make it however you choose!
2 large bottles of seltzer
1 bottle organic raspberry juice
1 bottle organic blueberry juice
1 container of organic raspberries
I mixed the liquids together in a punch bowl and added the raspberries in last. Serve over ice. I used about 1/2 of the juice bottles because I prefer it not too sweet but add to your desired sweetness :).
