Who else raids their kids’ Halloween bags but not necessarily JUST to check for tainted goods? Ah….WE ALL DO!
I usually try to get them to share a Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp and/or Reese Pieces…then of course, the Nibs, the Starburst and…oh yeah…those crunchy cheese like chip things and so on and so on…
I know that all the women in my challenge group want to enjoy Halloween but not the calories it comes with it…soo…here are some healthy snacks that you can make that will have you feeling as though you indulged…but really didn’t.(And yes, I said MAKE instead of BUY…aren’t you worth the work??)
BUT….yes, there’s a but….You HAVE to look at the serving sizes!! Just because it is a healthier version, doesn’t mean you can eat more!!
Grab yourself a nice cup of coffee, tea, seltzer, water…whatever you like and enjoy a small bit of what you think you are missing out on by not raiding those pillow cases!!
I made these for my boot camp class last year…delicious – http://ohsheglows.com/2013/07/19/raw-almond-butter-cups/
Craving ice cream?? https://www.cleaneatingmag.com/recipes/frozen-banana-pops
Looking for something softer and creamier?? https://www.cleaneatingmag.com/recipes/avocado-banana-chocolate-pudding
Chocolate is not your thing? You like the saltier treats? – http://allrecipes.com/recipe/81548/roasted-chickpeas/
Another EASY peasy delicious treat…peanut butter stuffed medjool dates…But I am talking about medjool dates and NATURAL peanut butter…eat two and you are good to go!
Tips to make these snacks even better…Eat slowly, enjoy the flavor…as opposed to ripping open the smarties box and tilting your head back and shoving all the little candies in your mouth in one shot.
Come on…we have all done it! 😉
Happy Halloween! Don’t let the scale scare you after trick or treating.
See you at the Squat Rack ~
