Easy like Sunday morning – that’s how I feel about these go-to healthy Easter recipes. This might just be my favorite Round Up Sunday yet because it’s perfect for kicking off spring and has some of my absolute favorite recipes in it. Whether or not you celebrate Easter, here’s a fun excuse to celebrate with brunch, veggies and baked treats!

Honestly this list started out with about 50+ recipes because there is so much goodness to make this season. As you know I love nothing more than flavorful soups, chilis, and all of the cozy winter recipes, but fresh spring flavors are calling my name.

For your Easter celebration I’ve got you covered with brunch, veggies & sides, a few go-to mains, and some amazing desserts that you might just fall in love with. Don’t know where to begin? Start with my quiche and work your way to this carrot cake banana bread. I promise you won’t regret it.


It’s time to snuggle up, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and get ready to plan the most epic spring menu that your friends and family have seen.

Enjoy, xo!
