Healthy Easter Menu Inspiration

As a believer in Christ, there is nothing better than celebrating the truth and purpose of Easter! I grateful and in awe of how perfectly God coupled sacrifice and beauty together with the crucifixion, resurrection, and renewed beauty of Spring.

I love how our extended family comes together on holidays. Spending time together after Easter service is one of my favorites. We live closest to my husband's family, and they are doing fabulous at keeping these large family gatherings a priority. I am grateful for that!

"Use a Spoon" Chopped Salad 
This chopped salad is a medley of flavors, full of colors and textures. Includes celery, carrots, red pepper, apple, cucumber, greens, cabbage, goat cheese, and almonds.

Roasted New Potatoes and Green Beans
New potatoes are roasted alongside green beans, and finished with a tangy champagne vinegar and Gorgonzola dressing.
Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Fruit Chutney
This basic roasted pork tenderloin is easy-peasy and pairs well with your favorite fruit.
Vegan, Hot Cross Buns
My little guy has food allergies, so I always like to include vegan, gluten free recipe options for the other mamas working to keep meals as normal for their littles as possible. To go the next step and make these Gluten Free, substitute the all purpose flour for a gluten free baking flour blend.

Raspberry Pie
This gluten free, vegan, raw, dessert packs all the color and flavor your sweet tooth can handle.
