I think Easter weekend is harder on parents than Halloween calorie-wise. In fact, when I typed “Easter” I typed too fast and accidentally typed “Eater”…which is what I was this weekend. I big ole’ eater. Easter weekend, I cook a lot and go out to lunch, and buy my kids the ‘good’ candy…from the local candy shop, not Walgreens. I love to go to Schneider’s Sweet Shop and pick out hand made chocolates and other sweets for them. Of course, I picked up a few for myself! But, today, Monday, is a new day. I worked out early and am making my grocery list. I cannot let all of my hard work on The Whole30 Program go to waste…or my waist…so I am back to clean eating. That does not mean there are not fun sides for the kids!
