Brunch Ideas
How about Easter brunch? That’ll leave you free for more family time and (hopefully) a little time to relax at the end of the day. A spread of breakfast fare, lunch dishes and some veggie-heavy sides will please everyone.

Dinner
If a more traditional Easter supper is more your speed, make any combo of these mains and sides.

    Lemons, oranges and limes are incredible little workers who can flush the body of toxins quickly. They offer a jump-start to the digestive system by adding needed enzymes. A lemon detox diet, for instance, cleanses the liver and prepares it for eliminating toxins throughout the day. Start off each morning of your diet with a warm glass of lemon water. You’ll be amazed at the results.
