It's that time of year again Eat-Clean Spooks... the costumes, creepery and candy are out in full force. Are you wondering how to handle the onslaught of crap that is going to be entering your home this evening? It's time to brace yourself for the madness of sugar-y sh*t! Oops! That may be harsh - but it's true.
Halloween is one of those times during the year when you have to think really hard about your health and fitness priorities. Based on your goals you can decide whether you will treat yourself to a Halloween goody (and I mean one - not the whole bowl) or if you will completely avoid the crap.
If you've got little munchkins in the house then create a Halloween candy bowl where they can keep a few of their favorite treats. If you decide to let them have a treat here and there you can tell them that they can have a piece of fruit or other healthy snack before they have their Halloween candy. Don't encourage them to hide their Halloween candy away. Let's leave it out in the open so it become a learning experience rather than something to be ashamed of.
