Grown ups in costumes. Apple spice and everything not nice. Bags full of leftover candy.
I get it, Halloween can be one scary thought so we thought we’d share some 4 tips to make this scary holiday, not so scary for your health.
- Opt for a healthier version
If you want to recreate your favorite treat, try making it yourself this year. This is a great idea if you are hosting or way to spend some time with friends or family. Not to mention, you will know exactly what ingredients you are using. For example, Rachel’s Mansfield’s plant-based, grain-free, and gluten-free, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkin Candies only takes 35 minutes to make up. You can find them here.
- Eat beforehand
Although you might feel like cutting your portions to make up for eating one too many treats last night, today is a new day. Serve your body with the right amount of whole, real foods and drink plenty of water during the day to limit overindulging at night.
- After the holiday is over, get rid of the extra treats
When November 1st rolls around it’s time to get rid of the remaining candy and treats. If the treats out of sight, they will be out of mind. Try to be mindful of this tip when shopping or making treats beforehand to limit your food waste!
- Have an accountability buddy
Talk to a family member, friend, or co-worker about keeping each other accountable during the holiday. You will be more motivated when it together, plus it’s a fun way to challenge yourself!
