hints-and-tips

It is easy to down a handful of Easter eggs in a few minutes, but what is really in all those tasty Easter treats? If you are planning to include some chocolate as a treat over the Easter holidays, here’s how long on average you will need to exercise to work them off:

2 x mini solid eggs = 25 minutes of walking
1 x small hollow egg (20g) = 20 minutes of gardening
2 x mini Creme eggs = 15 minutes of playing with the kids outside
1 x small Lindt Bunny (100g) = 45 minutes of swimming

Are all Hot Cross Buns the same?

The answer is no. Here’s how some of the most common hot cross buns match up:

1 x “mini” Hot Cross Bun (40g) = 15 minutes of bike riding
1 x medium Hot Cross Bun (65g) 30 minutes of playing golf
1 x choc chip Hot Cross Bun (60-70g) = 20 minutes of swimming

Dark Chocolate vs Milk Chocolate

You’ve probably heard a lot of talk about dark chocolate being good for you. So how much of it should you believe?

The cacao bean used to make chocolate contains flavonoids, a phytonutrient that has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants have been found to provide benefits to the body including helping to reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease. Dark chocolate has a higher proportion of cacao compared to milk or white chocolate, which explains why people love to claim that that ‘dark chocolate is good for you’.

While we all love chocolate and would use any excuse to indulge, it’s important to remember that all types of chocolate contain sugar and cacao butter which is high in saturated fat. So remember to use portion control when it comes to this treat food!
