With Halloween tomorrow, staying on track and keeping to your diet and weight loss goals can be a challenge. Bags of chocolate, candy, cookies and baked goods fill grocery aisles, your coworkers leave baskets of treats in the office, your kids come home with handful of sweets- no wonder it is not easy to say no when presented with all these temptations! To prevent sabotaging your hard work, it is important to plan ahead and decide how you will respond to each situation. In addition, many of the treats found on store shelves are made with chemicals and additives that we can barely pronounce! Information on which candies have the most toxic ingredients can be found here.
To satisfy your sweet tooth, many grocery stores now carry candies, chocolates and treats that are made without chemicals, food dyes, and pesticides, all which can affect a persons health. The following treats are made with natural ingredients that are free of dyes, chemicals and preservatives, and are also organic and non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). This way you can enjoy a small treat while also taking care of your health. And you can also feel better about distributing healthier treats to all the trick-or-treaters that ring your bell!
Have a safe and healthy Halloween!
