What is scarier to you? The haunted houses and hayrides or the abundance of candy that is available during this spooky holiday? Chances are if you’re reading this blog, it’s the latter.
HAVE NO FEAR! As with most things in life, there is always a solution. Better yet? We are going to give you 3 options ranging from the superhero Candy Crusher to the super-villain Candy Caver!
Option #1.) “Candy Crusher”: NO Candy. You will treat yourself to a better-for-you choice like granola, trail mix, pretzel sticks, protein bar, etc. The key here is to get creative and have fun with this healthy food so your kids can enjoy it too! Check out Halloween Monster Mouths for an adorable and healthy alternative!
Option #2.) “Candy Cool”: Healthy candy choice. You will treat yourself to candy, but it will be a low-calorie, low-fat option. A perfect example of this is a lollipop, such as a Tootsie Roll Pop or Blow Pop, as they take longer to eat and generally only have about 50-60 calories!
Option #3.) “Candy Caver”: Indulge in the richer candy with the little help of our friend. You will grab the biggest, most decadent piece of candy that you can find…but don’t go it alone! Entrust the help of our beloved to assist. helps to shuttle glucose (sugar) from your blood into the muscle tissue as glycogen, which is right where we want that candy to go!
So, which superhero are you going to be this year?
