Looking for some healthy Easter brunch and Easter dinner ideas?  If so, you’re in the right place.

I’m going to share my favorite healthy brunch and dinner ideas that’ll help you look like a domestic goddess, stay healthy, and on track for your weight loss and wellness goals during Easter.  These are the exact same tips and recipes I share with my training and coaching clients.

For Easter, I suggest having water, high fiber plant-based foods, and clean proteins throughout the day.  This will ensure that you’re hydrated, full, and able to regulate hunger without pesky cravings.

This combination will keep you energized and satisfied all day and also helps boost metabolism so you’ll burn calories automatically just by eating.  All of my Easter brunch and Easter dinner ideas are packed with fresh flavors, fiber and/or protein and also look so pretty on the Easter table.

Healthy Drink Idea for Easter

 

Water is important, especially during the morning because you’ve been without water for 6+ hours as you’ve been sleeping.  Drinking water first thing in the morning and throughout the day will keep you hydrated and also helps regulate hunger and stop cravings… which is always helpful to avoid temptation when there’s a ton of food and tasty treats around.  Try spa water during brunch or dinner for a pretty touch that makes the Easter holiday feel extra special.  Here’s how to get the best results.

  • Start your Easter morning off right with 8 oz. of filtered water.  Bonus points if you add freshly squeezed lemon, fruits, or herbs to your water to make it a truly naturally flavored spa water.
  • You’ll need approx. 1 lemon wedge for every 8 oz. of water.  Lemon juice boosts benefits.
  • Double Bonus Points if you drink it out of a wine glass. 😉
  • Other things I like to add to my water to make it extra pretty and nutritious are: strawberry slices, blueberries, watermelon, orange, grapefruit, cucumber slices, mint, and/or basil.  I try a new combination every year.  So far watermelon, cucumber, lemon, and mint has been my favorite.  The more you add, the more nutritious and flavorful your water will be.
  • TIP:  If you like this idea try my Lemon Water Challenge it’s the easiest detox you’ll ever do.

Easy Easter Brunch Ideas

 

  • Frittata – A frittata is like a crustless quiche.  It’s literally an omelet you bake in the oven.  I like to add approximately 2 cups of mixed omelet-friendly vegetables, like diced broccoli, onion, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, spinach, etc. and pour 6 beaten eggs over the top.  Season with salt, pepper, herbs, and spices to taste.  I bake mine in a 10″ cast iron skillet at 350 until the eggs are cooked and firm.  It takes about 30 minutes and tastes amazing.
  • Easy Egg Breakfast Muffins – These are like mini-frittatas made in a muffin tin.  I like to make extras to meal prep breakfast for the next day.
  • Traditional omelets are great on Easter, too.  Use a lot of vegetables to add fiber and stay fuller, longer.
  • Deviled Eggs – Here are 5 Deviled Egg Recipes to try.  These work great during Easter brunch and dinner and are always a fan favorite.  They’re full of protein and will keep you feeling fuller longer.
  • Serve sides of veggies, veggie sticks, cherry tomatoes, and avocado slices.  This will help get more fiber and plant-based foods into your breakfast or brunch.

Fresh Fruit Plate Idea for Easter

 

You really can’t go wrong with a pretty platter of fresh fruit for Easter brunch or dinner.  Fruit is high in fiber and loaded with antioxidants and vitamins.  You can serve fresh fruit in a few ways to make it special for Brunch:

  • Pre-prepped and arranged on a platter – You can pre-slice and prep your fruits and arrange them on a platter.  It’s always fun to arrange the fruit into holiday-friendly shapes.  Like this super cute Bunny Head Fresh Fruit Platter.
  • Whole in a bowl – Whole pieces of fruit like apples, plums, grapes, mandarine, oranges, tangerines, and pears make pretty edible centerpieces for your Easter table. Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are easy to prepare.  You can also toss them together into a fresh fruit salad.  Dress with lemon juice and fresh mint if you want to add a special touch.
  • A fruit salad – Toss your favorite fruits together in a bowl and dress with lemon juice to prevent discoloration.  Apples, pineapples, grapes, melons, berries, and watermelon work well together.

NOTE: Because fruit is high in sugar, it’s good to pair fruit with protein and high fiber vegetables to help regulate blood sugar levels.  A frittata, omelet, or egg muffins would be perfect.

EASTER DINNER IDEAS

 

I’m assuming you’ve already got your main dish(es) covered like a traditional ham or turkey.  Here are my top healthy dinner side dish ideas that I personally use and recommend most for Easter.  They’re healthy and so pretty.

  • My pretty purple Red Cabbage Recipe is the perfect side dish!  I make it every year for Easter because it’s a pretty pastel color and looks so pretty on the table.  The best part?  A huge bowl has minimal calories (think 25 max) and is packed with fiber that will keep you full for hours.
  • Other Plant-Based Side Dish Ideas – Organic corn, carrots, green beans, asparagus, cauliflower mash or rice, and roasted Brussels Sprouts make great side dishes for Easter.
  • Soup is a great way to add more vegetables to your Easter meal. This Coconut Thai Shrimp Soup and this Roasted Red Pepper Soup would be great for Easter.  They’re full of flavor, light, and packed with vitamins and fiber.  Butternut squash soup is sweet, colorful, filling yet light, and low in calories and everyone seems to love it.  TIP:  Try organic, dairy-free butternut squash soup from your grocery store, for a quick and easy appetizer that you don’t have to cook.
  • Avocado Eggs – This quick and easy dish makes a great appetizer or side dish.  Filling the negative space of a half of an avocado with hummus kind of looks like an ‘egg.’  Avocado eggs are incredibly delicious, filling, and fun.  I eat them all the time.
  • A beautiful salad makes a great Easter dish.  You can layer on tons of colorful toppers over a bed of greens for a pretty and healthy addition to your Easter table.  I love adding red onion, fruit slices (like chopped apple or strawberry slices), and hardboiled eggs to make my salads fit into the theme for Easter.
  • Roasted Chickpeas – These crunchy, salty, chickpeas are amazing on a salad for added crunch instead of traditional croutons.
