4 recipes to help you beat the post-Easter bloat and feel re-energized

It’s about now that many of us are feeling the Easter bloat from too many hot cross buns and choccy eggs. Easter rolls around once a year and it’s okay to indulge in the sugary treats that come with this festive weekend.

Rather than feeling guilty about what you’ve eaten (and can’t change), hop into the short week knowing you are nourishing your body with these light, nutritious, and delicious meals. Our Nutrition team suggests boosting your vege and protein intake to help beat the sugar crash and to re-energize for the short week ahead.

MONDAY: Vietnamese Beef and Noodle Salad

This recipe can be used with a range of beef cuts. It's fresh, healthy and easy to prepare, making it the ideal go-to.

Or: Beefy Breakfast Burrito

…or a brunch option seeing as it’s a public holiday…

WEDNESDAY: Nourishing Mexican Beef Bowl

A delicious and healthy deconstructed Mexican beef bowl, this recipe is sure to tick all the boxes. The mince packs the perfect flavour with just the right amount of spice. We love adding the coriander stalks to the mince for an extra depth of flavour. With a colourful mix of veges, don’t hold back on adding any that need to be used up from your fridge.

SATURDAY: Warm Lamb, Carrot & Beetroot Salad

We call this a salad but it’s definitely a meal in itself – halfway between a fresh summery dish and something heart-warming for the cooler months.
