From easy & tasty breakfast recipes to lunches and dinners to desserts, today I have a list of 25 Healthy &/or Healthyish Recipes for you and your family for Easter or any celebration.

I think my memory-processing center needs a reboot. Last night, my daughter asked me, “mom, hey do you remember those carrot cake cookies you made last Easter?” And, I gotta be honest, I thought I made them a couple of Easters ago.

As far as I can remember (which isn’t too far), Easter Sundays have usually been busy-in-the-best-way for us. Most Easter Sundays have found my daughter and I running around, trying to squeeze in as much time as possible with family and friends in Atlanta before driving back to Athens to try and get ready for Monday.

However, this Easter, things are going to be different. Very diffeent.

For the very first Easter ever, my daughter and I plan on spending Easter Sunday in our pj’s, on our couch, with these carrot cake waffles, these oatmeal pancakes, and a big jar of coffee.

Then, later in the afternoon, we plan on face-timing my mom and sister while enjoying a no-fuss, healthyish Easter meal that might include this Bean Tart and these ginger carrots.

And, we plan on capping off our meal with these healthyish, small batch carrot cake cupcakes and some paleo carrot cake bars.

Seeing we will all be staying home this Easter, what will you be cooking? If you are undecided, I have 25 recipes here that I hope will inspire you to eat a bit on the healthy/healthyish side.

From delicious carrot cake cupcakes and cookies to flavor packed veggie sides to easy asparagus egg salad to a variety of tasty treats, I hope you find something you and your family will love.

Until Monday, Hoping you and your family have a happy and blessed Easter at home this year.
