Halloween is just one of the many holidays this season that seems to give us an excuse to over indulge in high sugar and high calorie treats that can leave us feeling sluggish, bloated, even sick. But this Halloween can be different by following these 3 easy tips to avoiding unhealthy choices but still satisfying that sweet tooth.
1. Instead of the typical candy corn and snickers options (which, don’t get us wrong, we love from time to time), try keeping healthier treats in the house like granola bars or toasted pumpkin seeds sweetened with organic dark maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon. These will satisfy your sweet tooth without the added sugar and GMO.
2. Boozy drinks will be all around on Halloween, from spiked punch to spooky cocktails, but don’t be fooled by the presentation, because just like a ghost, you can’t actually see the calories you’re consuming in these drinks! Try opting for a refreshing and crisp Cliffton Dry, the “spa drink for boozy occasions.” With only 120 calories per bottle and .02% sugar, it’s the perfect drink to wash down all that sugar and actually leave you feeling good.
3. Take a break from the sweets and partake in some organic pumpkin carving instead. And after, you can bake the pumpkin seeds and even use the pumpkin to bake a pumpkin pie. Visit your local farmer’s market and pick up some fresh pumpkins to get creative with!
