We will soon be celebrating Easter, which although an important time in the Christian calendar, is also a time to be fully welcoming Spring and the joys of nature; daffodils, narcissi, tulips, and of course those cute lambs. This year it is going to be a very different Easter to previous years. Much of the celebrations both religious and secular are going to be heavily curtailed, with the closure of religious venues, restaurants and many shops.
How can we help a negative situation turn into a more positive time?
Normally a traditional time for families to get together, our home celebrations may seem a lot quieter than usual. However, it is the perfect time for isolated family members to cook and bake together. Why not create a family bake-off, and see which family member can bake and decorate the best Easter cup cakes, using our muffin baking mixes?
Thinking of a centrepiece for your Easter tea table, how about using our delicious Cacao Rich chocolate Cake baking mix, and decorate it with Gnawbles of your choice and Easter chicks or bunnies, to get into the Easter spirit. An alternative centrepiece might be the Vegan Orange and Carrot Polenta Cake would look beautiful as the centrepiece surrounded by spring flowers, as long as no-one suffers from hay fever.
When everyone else is eating chocolate eggs, and other seasonal food, imagine how frustrating it must be for those who can’t always find healthy snacks that are free of allergens and nuts. We fill that gap.
Other ways to help create a special Easter during isolation Easter-time also usually means, spring flowers, cakes, and Easter egg hunts around the garden. More activities that people with food
allergies don’t look forward to with the same enjoyment as everyone else – especially if they can’t eat the cakes or the eggs. We have a whole range of products that are perfectly safe for
anyone with these dietary requirements. All of our products are gluten, wheat, dairy, and nut safe.
Rather than hunting for traditional chocolate eggs, why not buy some re-useable Easter eggs that you can fill with a variety of Gnawbles. Place these around the garden, for an egg hunt, along
with some of the protein snacks. There are a range of tasty different flavours, and the packaging is very colourful, so will add to the fun of the search.
Why not try:
Creating an Easter basket or hamper would be a great idea for family members close to you in location but whom you are unable to visit this year, due to the Coronavirus. Add a selection of Gnawbles, protein bars or even baking mixes alongside a small bouquet of spring flowers, (maybe even cut from your garden), and deliver them, taking care to keep within the suggested guidelines. Even though you may not be able to physically be with people this year, you will still be presenting a little bit of Easter to your friends or family.
We would love to see pictures of your bake-off challenges, so please share them with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share
