Every country has their own tradition for Easter, one of my favorite is Easter egg coloring with natural colors as after you put them on a festivity table, exchange with neighbors, family and friends for neighborly living. (Also for this reason my family usually go for 30-40 egg coloring as you need to eat them, exchange them and fight them as well).
Easter morning starts with your colored egg finding inside your house or garden (where usually Easter bunny is leaving them) together with some nice card, chocolate and marzipan egg. The egg hunting is usually for all the family together or kids. Once you have found yours you go go back for breakfast and have the traditional egg fight too.
One of Latvian tradition also says that you must eat egg with the salt otherwise you will tell the lies all year around. (for me it is pretty difficult as I do not use salt at all and do not like yolk, but one egg I go for every Easter).
These are my mom’s colored Easter eggs last year. The colorful patterns comes from natural colors, like onions, red beets, different flowers and grass that’s put around the egg and boiled. As they are natural than can be eaten.

Another egg idea (good for breakfast) is Egg clouds. have tried them myself – all you need is an egg, frying pan and whisk to whip the egg whites and put in an oven for couple of minutes.
As i do love my food cute and also play with it than here is some fun breakfast inspiration – a funny face for not only Easter morning.
If coming your friends over and have still way too many hard boiled eggs (not consumed during breakfast) – make these lovely mice or bunnies for a table decoration.
These are my egg suggestions for a fitter Easter table and for different taste for those regular eggs. Try them out yourself instead of all those chocolate and marzipan eggs and candies and your body will definitely thank you and will spare you some hard hours sweating on a treadmill to kill all those unnecessary calories taken during the holidays.
