Easter Eggs, Treats, and Food

Easter is fast approaching, so I thought I’d direct you to a few resources here at The Nourishing Gourmet.

Naturally Dyed Eggs

Last year I experimented with two ways to naturally dye eggs. Onion Skin dyed eggs are actually beautiful. And you can also dye eggs a wide variety of colors, such as pink, green, and yellow using very natural substances. This makes a fun project. See the finished product above.

Naturally Sweet Easter Candy

Treats could include homemade marshmallow chicks, nut butter chocolate eggs, or a wide variety of naturally sweetened candies. I have found it possible to have Easter sweets for my children without having to buy any packaged sweets at the store! For dessert ideas, check out my “Dessert” tab for more ideas.

Naturally Good Easter Food

For a simple brunch/breakfast that is plump full of delicious food, check out this menu that also has a timeline of when to get what done. The menu includes Mango Orange Smoothie, which is a favorite around here as well as Roasted Asparagus with sauteed mushrooms and lemon sauce. Delish!

Other recipe ideas:

Celebration Aebleskivers (Gluten and dairy-free, soaked) are one of my favorite Easter brunch foods.

Sage Apple Turkey Sausage is a simple recipe to make some lovely homemade sausages.

My recent gluten-free sprouted blueberry lemon pancakes would make a very delicious option as well.

Those are just a couple of my ideas. I’d love to hear yours!

I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!
