It’s that time of year again. Time to gorge yourself with Halloween candy. With a bowl of sweet treats around at all times, it can be hard to stay on track with a healthy lifestyle. So check out these tips to feel a little better indulging this Halloween.
Nuts are a great source of protein. Peanuts, especially, contain many vitamins and minerals. Try a snack-size bag of Peanut M&Ms or an individually wrapped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup for some extra protein.
Sugar, Sugar, Baby.
Craving something fruity and chewy?Look for candy with lower calories and little to no fat.Try a Mike & Ike snack-size pack or a couple of Twizzlers. Both these options are low in calories and help kill sugar cravings.
Need a chocolate fix?
Reach for dark chocolate over milk chocolate. Dark chocolate has powerful antioxidants and contains many important vitamins and minerals. Try Hershey’s Special Dark miniature over a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate miniature for a satisfying cocoa flavor.
Maybe candy with a little crunch is more your style. Reach for a snack-size Kit Kat or Nestle Crunch bar for a satisfying crunch without the guilt. Both have light crunchy fillings, giving them a lower calorie count than other chocolate treats.
Reach for these choices this Halloween season to feel a little better about indulging in copious amounts of chocolate and sugar. Whether you leave some for the trick-or-treaters, though, is up to you!
