Easter Bunny Cups

Being the childlike person I am, I never have no problem dreaming up fun and cute food ideas that appeal to children (and big kids alike!)

These Easter Bunny Cups are just a variation of our Mini Egg Frittatas, just with added facial features.

Nutritional Benefits:

Eggs are an excellent all round food offering protein and amino acids needed by the body for it to repair itself. They  contain many nutrients  including vitamin A to benefit eye health, vitamin B12 (fighting depression and tiredness), vitamins D and K (keeping bones strong), iron, zinc, omega 3’s and choline (a nutrient needed for the development of memory and learning in the brain). Studies show that egg  consumption can help to prevent chronic age related conditions like heart disease, eye degeneration, memory loss and loss of muscle mass. There is no limit on how many eggs we should eat; multiple studies and research has shown that the saturated fats have no effect on blood cholesterol.

Tomatoes are full of vitamin C, antioxidants which are cancer preventative, potassium (essential for maintaining fluid balance and muscle/nerve function) and compounds which prevent blood clots.

Cheese is an excellent source of protein, vitamin D, calcium (needed for strong bones) as well as other various vitamins and minerals. Recent research has shown that they have  little effect on the heart or risks of strokes like previously thought. In fact, the fatty  acids in dairy foods help lower bad LDL cholesterol and raise the good HDL cholesterol as well as prevent type 2 diabetes. However, it should not be eaten in vast amounts but certainly as part of a healthy diet.

The recipes are free to everyone to use (please give credits to us if you choose to use them), and always will be, but our non-profit organisation incurs many costs to keep it running. If you would like to help keep it going, please consider giving a donation.
