Most of us see Easter as a time to indulge in a long weekend of chocolate and hot cross buns. However, it is possible to still enjoy Easter without letting go of our healthy habits. Here are three ways to have a healthy and happy Easter: 

  • Start each day with a healthy balanced breakfast. Make a nutritious low-carb breakfast with a lean source of protein and healthy fats. This will stabilise your blood sugar levels and promote satiety and appetite regulation. 

  • Practise eating mindfully and in moderation. All foods are okay to enjoy in moderation so try not to adopt the mind frame of writing off the whole day just from having one Easter egg. Save your leftover Easter eggs as treats for other weekends!

  • Try our Hot Cross Bun Protein Balls! Swap it, don’t stop it. These are a great healthy treat option that will keep you on track with your weight loss goals. 

Hot Cross Bun Protein Balls 

Number of serves: 14, Serve weight: 30g


¾ cup almond meal

¾ cup rolled oats

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp nutmeg 

½ tsp allspice 

2 tbsp coconut oil 

1 tsp natural vanilla essence 

95g cooked apple (or tinned 100% apple pie filling)

60g Be Fit Food Vanilla Protein Booster 

1/3 cup sultanas 

Desiccated coconut, for coating 


  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients except the sultanas. Blend until the mixture is combined and smooth in consistency. 

  • Fold through the sultanas.

  • Place desiccated coconut on a plate or clean bench top. 

  • Using a small kitchen scale, weigh out approximately 30g of mixture for each protein ball.

  • Wet hands and roll each 30g of mixture into a ball. Roll the ball in desiccated coconut, coating it. 

  • Place protein balls in the freezer for one hour and serve. 

Note: Keep protein balls stored in freezer. They can be eaten straight from the freezer or place them in the fridge half an hour before eating to soften.
