We love the Easter Bunny and all, but we think we can do better. We challenged five bloggers to hop to it and create baskets with goodies from the grocery store — remember at Whole Foods Market there's no high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated fats, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors or artificial colors in any of the food we sell. Here are their better-for-you (but still delicious!) takes on Easter tradition.

The Kid-friendly, Gluten-free Basket

Danielle Walker, the mom and cookbook author behind the popular blog Against All Grain, shopped for a basket that would work for her family's diet — we love the mix of candy options and Easter activities (above). (Ask a team leader at your local store for a list of gluten-free and allergy friendly options.) And check out the post on her blog for a bonus idea: A garden lover’s basket that’s perfect for the host or hostess.

Paleo-friendly Baskets

Juli Roth from PaleOMG created a basket that does double duty. She suggests stocking up on Paleo-friendly goodies like Steve’s Paleo Goods Dried Strawberries and Dang Coconut Chips and then filling the rest of your basket with all the supplies you’ll need to make an amazing Easter feast.

Stephanie Gerber from Hello Glow offers up some easy Paleo-friendly ideas that allow you to stick to your diet and still satisfy your sweet tooth. Click through to her blog for a few more ideas, including a fun vegan basket and a spa basket for your favorite beauty lover.

The Kid-friendly Kindness Basket

If you’re a parent and you’re not already following Rachel Norman, the blogger behind A Mother Far From Home, check her out. We love her take on Easter Baskets this year — she took her three children shopping to make a basket to give away to a child in another family.
