Low Carb Easter Menu


Easter is a traditional family get-together time. How can you eat in a way that everyone will love - but that is very healthy as well? It's quite easy!

First, keep in mind that traditional menus for Easter are all about celebrating the fresh crops that have begun to come in. Not too long ago, people did not have freezers and world-wide harvest cycles. We ate what was available locally. That meant that until Easter, we were suffering with dried foods from last year's harvest. Easter was a celebration of the birth of spring, of the new bounty that was beginning.

First, appetizers. Eggs are one of the primary symbols of Easter - the symbol from the very beginning of a new life. Eggs were used by many cultures to celebrate the coming of a new season of planting. Make up a batch of devilled eggs!

Make a springtime salad with an oil and vinegar dressing. Salad is perfect for filling you up, providing great nutrition and having almost no carbs. Make some egg salad while you're at it, to play on the egg theme some more.

The two main meats that are served are ham and lamb. Both of these are completely zero carb! Grill up some lamb chops, or roast a ham for the family. Make them fresh and flavorful, not loaded down with sugary syrups.

For a side dish, asparagus was once a luxury vegetable that only the wealthy could afford. Presenting asparagus at Easter was a sign of wealth and prosperity. Treat your own family to this springtime delight, with a luscious cheese sauce!

For dessert, get a bunch of the sugar-free chocolate bunnies that are on the market! Everyone loves nibbling the ears off the bunny, and when they're sugar free, there's no harm in eating the whole thing! If you have an anti-chocolate person in the house, a plate of berries is always delicious and very good for you too.
