Have a Balanced Easter with Seasonal Produce and Fresh Recipes!

Are you stuck for Easter meal ideas or wanting to offset some of the treats with healthy, nutritious food?

We’ve put together a guide and recipe suggestions to help balance out your family’s Easter tally! Keep reading for a summary of what’s in season plus delicious, nutritious recipe ideas to make the most of them.

We’ve all heard that eating seasonal fruit and vegetables is key part of a balanced diet. With our busy lifestyles and supermarkets keeping most things stocked throughout the year, it can be easy to lose track of what’s in season! That’s why we’ve listed them for you so you can keep an eye peeled (no pun intended). You can mix up a familiar family go-to l by swapping one or more ingredients or get inspired by recipes that showcase these beauties.

And yes, your MOD Cold Press Juicer can juice any of the below. We haven’t tried beans, chilli, Brussel sprouts, eggplant, leek or parsnip... If you’re feeling game, we’d love to hear how you go! Otherwise these would be great additions to your Easter meals. Enjoy! Team MOD x

Sometimes winter visits early – especially further south. If you’re feeling the chill, try this Winter Warming SoupWith just a handful of ingredients, this soup is easy to whip up and not only will it warm your soul, it will fill you with a range of important vitamins and minerals.

 

Start your Easter celebrations off right with this Easter-inspired carrot juice. Carrots are a powerhouse vegetable that will help your body cut through the increased intake of sugar. They are loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene which can lower your risk of diabetes while the calcium and vitamin K can strengthen and maintain good overall bone health.

 

French toast does not have to be an unhealthy indulgence. You can satisfy your sweet tooth and still eat a meal that is refined sugar free and has a healthy serve of protein, vitamin C, antioxidants and whole grains with our Orange Spiced French Toast Recipe! Using oranges instead of milk also makes this a dairy free breakfast. Typically 2-3 oranges will produce one cup of juice, but feel free to juice extra and serve the breakfast alongside a glass of freshly made orange juice!
