Having candy in the house just calls you at weak moments!
?Make it a healthy Halloween and give out pretzels; pencils, glow sticks or temporary tattoos and bypass the whole thing!!!
?Allow yourself to have 1-3 pieces of candy and let that satisfy the sweet tooth! Don’t deprive yourself- have a taste and give the rest away!
?Donate the candy! When the kids go to school on Monday pick out their favorites and donate the rest of the candy or pitch it!! The less temptation the better and honestly the kids won’t even know!! If you live in the Pittsburgh area you can take unwrapped candy to the Lighthouse foundation or donate it to the troops!
?Focus on your goals and your health! Sure the candy might taste good at the moment but will it make u feel good in the long run or will it leave u feeling guilty???
Don’t let the candy drive you! Be strong- feeling good in your own skin is the best reward you can give yourself!! I will say that on the day of halloween I will be doing a killer cardio workout to burn extra calories so that when I do have a treat I will just cancel it out! It’s all mindset!
Who is committed to a healthy Halloween!?!
Below I added in some extra recipes that have kept me on track along the way!! I hope they help you too! For more daily tips hit up my Facebook Page!

?A few almonds
SWEET POTATO FRIES
- large sweet potatoes
- teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- tablespoon sugar
- tablespoons olive oil
- tablespoon salt
- FLAVOR: OPTIONAL Instead of the spice, sugar and salt, try a pinch of Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
- Scrub the sweet potatoes clean. Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 rounds. Use mini cookie cutters to cut jack-o-lantern faces, stars, and pumpkins into the center of each sweet potato slice. Or, use a small knife and carve a mini jack-o-lantern face into the sweet potato slices.
- Place sweet potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and salt. Bake in an oven preheated to 400°F and cook until tender, about 18-22 minutes.
