HOW TO ENJOY YOUR EASTER CHOCOLATE GUILT FREE… Without messing up your hormones!

You’re allowed to have your cake and eat it too (or easter eggs in this case)

When it comes to our health and eating habits, especially at this time of year, it can be very easy to find ourselves OVER-EATING or EMOTIONAL EATING… 😓⁣ and an overindulgence in refined sugars and processed foods can send our hormones into haywire!

I’m here to help you ditch the guilt and eat intuitively whilst keeping those hormones happy! 🙌🏽⁣

As someone who really used to struggle with binge eating, especially around Easter I can totally relate, and know the battles that can be going on in your mind right now 😣⁣

I also know how much it used to end up affecting my mood, my energy and ultimately my next period because I had overindulged

Believe it or not, we actually have internal hunger cues and appetite regulators that help tell us when we are due to eat, and when we are full 🤯⁣

However, I also know we are human 😅, and these can be easily overridden when it comes to emotion, stress, boredom or even hormonal imbalance ⁣

I want you to be able to go enjoy your easter eggs or hot cross buns ⁣with freedom, or choose not to from an empowered place 🍫😍 🙌🏽

Instead of focusing on what you can’t have, focus on what you really want! 🤩I can’t tell you the amount of times I have actually passed up chocolate, ice cream and cake because I really didn’t feel like it, 👌🏽 and other times where I have devoured more than my share! 😅

However, there was a time where bingeing was my go to, 😓 followed by purging…

I won’t even tell you what happened to the poor giant Reese’s pieces peanut butter egg that I ate in one sitting 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ But that was before I found the balance I now have 😍 There is no restriction, so there is literally no need to binge or purge 🎉🎉🎉


I give myself full permission to have what I want, when I want, and this for me is truly FREEING! 🥳 However there are a few key things I also do, so that I know that I am making the decision from a healthy place.

  1.  Ensuring I have had a protein rich meal, with plenty of leafy greens too, this way I know I am satiated, have given my body a bunch of nutrients and I won’t be trying to satisfy the hunger by filling myself up with sugar.
  2.  I then practise intuitive eating, by asking myself and answering honestly – ‘Is this going to serve me right now?’ And the answer may very well be YES, I might really feel like the chocolate and want to savour and enjoy it, or I might check in and see I’m actually not that hungry right now and having the chocolate is only going to make me feel too full and bloated and that’s not fun. The key is to understand, there is no wrong answer.
  3.  If I do choose to enjoy the chocolate (and I know at some point over Easter weekend I most definitely will), I am really present and mindful with it. I don’t just snack away in front of a screen, or mindlessly consume it without even realising I’m eating it. Instead, I notice the feel, taste, texture and sweetness of it as I enjoy every mouthful/piece. Mindful eating is an amazing practice to practise.
  4.  Finally I make sure I am keeping on top of my supplements, magnesium is amazing to keep on top of sugar cravings, but also support your hormone health and reduce that stress hormone cortisol from floating around unnecessarily. I take this daily, and sometimes increase it during times like these to support my body.


By listening to my body, hunger cues, feeling into whether or not I am wanting the chocolate 🍫 from a place of lack and emotion, or because I truly want to enjoy it and savouring every delicious mouthful, has been a GAME CHANGER! 🤩🤩

And if it worked for me (with my history of ED), then I know it can work for you! 🙌🏽

Listen to what your gut is telling you (like seriously), take that pause and then make your decision from a place of empowerment and completely GUILT FREE! 😁


Yours in Health & Happiness,
