YOUR WEEKLY SPOILS: This week? healthier treats this season!
Join me every Wednesday for one simple healthy habit
So all this talk about sugar… What about Halloween?
Whether you have kids that trick or treat or a workplace prone to gathering post-halloween candies, we all have an influx of sweets.
What to do?
Those without kids load up on those good fats to reduce the craving. Then pack your office drawer or lunch box full of some “better” treats from yum earth or your fave dark chocolate from fresh market.
As for trick or treating we still go, but the kids trade their candy in for gift cards, a movie, or Yum Earth candies. Then we drop the halloween candies at our local fire or police station! Nurses love the candies too, by the way. Win, Win, Win!
Better treats for trade:
Yum Earth, organic gummy bears (Costco), organic juice pops, 1 cookie (let them have fun making them), a few chocolate covered nuts. FRUIT (with a dab of whipped cream)
Habit of the Week: Stock up for your “better” treats and plan your trades.
Hop on Amazon or head out to Target, Fresh Market, or Costco for some "better" alternatives for those kiddos. Don't forget Costco has movie gift cards at a discount! Great for a trade with the kids.
- Costco: Movie or other gift cards, gummies, chocolates
- Target: Yum Earth & other specialty candies, gift cards, dollar section (try give them $10 to spend in dollar section)
- Fresh Market: specialty candies and baked goods
- Dollar Store: Give them $x to have their pick of games or trinkets
