Happy Easter! Although I try to get out of coloring eggs every year, thinking my kids have grown out of it, they literally won’t let it happen. They love the tradition, and they love eating eggs!
Hard boiled eggs are one of my kids go-to after school snack! In fact, if we probably boil half of our egg supply each week for that purpose. They can peel the eggs themselves, and I love that they are getting a healthy snack. Eggs:
- Contain all 9 essential amino acids!
- They contain natural occurring vitamin D
- They promote healthy nails and hair
- The combination of protein and fat make them a satisfying and filling snack.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the tradition of dying eggs! It may be a mess (my 3 year old nephew was throwing his eggs like a basketball into the cup of dye), but heck. You only have to do it once a year!
And here is our suggested meal plan for the week:
|Monday||Cooked oatmeal with raspberries, almond slivers, and coconut||Chicken Caesar wrap (romaine, chicken, and parmesan cheese)||Kiwi and soy nuts||Roasted Chicken and Vegetables|
