Want a healthy Easter this year? We’ve got you!

As Easter fast approaches, we prepare ourselves and our bodies to consume the whole years’ worth of chocolate in one day. We’ve accepted the fact that we’ll be feeling bloated, our skin will break out, not to mention we’ll be riddled with guilt as we drag ourselves to the gym on Easter Monday morning. But just for a second, imagine a universe where you wouldn’t go to bed guilty on Sunday night. Imagine a universe where you would go to bed on Sunday night feeling healthy! You know us, so you know we’re all about keeping it fresh and healthy, so let’s have a look at how we can help you to enjoy everything you usually do over Easter, without the guilt.

Here at Peaches, we offer a wide range of wholesome, organic food, and when it comes to Easter treats, we’re going above and beyond! And they’re not just for the grown-ups! The kids will love these ideas too! For the traditional Easter egg with a difference, there’s the Moo Free vegan chocolate eggs in a range of flavours, including Bunnycomb and Orange! These are great for the kids, because what’s Easter without an egg from the Easter bunny!

But if you’re looking for the real deal, without the high amounts of sugar, look no further than dark chocolate. Chocolate containing over 70% cocoa means there is less sugar and saturated fat, which is the bad stuff. Peaches has a huge range of amazing, quality chocolate that will ensure you get your fix over the holidays. Try the Loving Earth range for vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO choccy in flavours that will have you celebrating Easter every weekend! Try their 85% dark, or if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, try Turkishly Delightful or Coffee Ka-pow!

And if you want to get really crazy, try the Pana Chocolate range of raw, organic, dairy, soy, gluten AND refined sugar free! Woah! There will be no regrets here. Try Eighty for 80% cocoa, or Sour Cherry and Vanilla or Rose for something more exciting!

And don’t forget, chocolate has a whole range of uses, so don’t be limited to eating it in bar form. Why not melt it down and dip it in some fresh seasonal fruits like bananas or strawberries?

There are so many ideas out there if you are looking for a healthy Easter this year. Don’t fall into the trap of binging on sugary treats over the long weekend. Come into Peaches and check out our awesome range of products to make your Easter the healthiest and happiest yet!

Healthy Hot Cross Buns!

It isn’t Easter without sharing some warm, buttery hot cross buns. However, the hot cross buns you generally find in your supermarket are full of sugar, preservatives and other nasties that aren’t good for you or your family. Rather than scouring the shelves this Easter looking for a healthy alternative, why not whip up your own batch of hot cross buns!


We found a recipe that is sure to be a winner in your household from Well Nourished. What we love about this recipe is that it doesn’t use any yeast. An intolerance to yeast may not be as uncommon as you think. Some of the symptoms include fatigue, irritability, stomach cramps, trouble skin and indigestion. Cutting down yeast in your diet may help with some of these problems you’re experiencing and with this yummy recipe, you’re not sacrificing the treat. Plus, without any yeast, you don’t have to wait for these bad boys to rise, which means they’re ready to eat even faster!


Well Nourished recognizes that everyone has different dietary needs so they offer you lots of recipe tweaks to suit you! You can read her recipe for healthy hot cross buns here.
