Help! What do I do with all the Easter Eggs I have been given? I don’t want to eat them!

Easter Sunday….exciting for some, dreaded by others! Why? Because some people have spent all year working hard on eating well, exercising and staying in the mindset of health and wellness just to be handed more chocolate than they can physically eat in one sitting!

So what do we do with all this chocolate? I know my generation was brought up with a mentality that food should be eaten and not wasted. Is that you?

Is the thought of throwing out a gift too much for you to bear? Especially seeing it is edible!

If so, then this blog is perfect for you!

Here are some great ideas that will turn your Easter egg spread (around the hips and stomach that is!) into Easter egg cred! (short for credibility).

1. First of all…. It’s Easter for crying out loud. Pick your favorite egg and just eat it!  Actually, don’t just eat it…enjoy every single bit of it. You have worked hard all year staying in shape or at least ‘thinking’ about staying in shape so why not enjoy it. Life is not meant to be hard, it’s meant to be fun!

2. Google “leftover chocolate Easter egg recipes”. There are loads of forums providing some great recipe ideas. If you want to be really creative, you can make some of the recipes and sell them at your local market! Otherwise, invite friends or family over for a meal and serve them in a dessert.

3. Visit your local aged care facility, sit down, have a cup of tea or coffee and a conversation and share an egg with someone.

4. Put all of your leftover eggs into a nice basket, wrap it up, make it pretty and give it to a family in need.

5. Spend an hour or so walking the streets of your local city and give them to the homeless. Spend a moment with each person and have a conversation. See if you can give them a reason to smile for the day. Not only will you feel good about giving away the eggs, you will feel good about the exercise and you will feel good about making someone’s day.

So there you have it. Some “egg-cellent” ideas wouldn’t you say?

This list is far from exhausted, you just need to be a little creative and think outside the box. This principle applies to many areas of life.

If you ever feel stuck or unsure about what course of action to take next, draw a box around you then physically step outside of it and start thinking from there.

After all, what you can achieve in life is only limited by your own imagination!
