Oh, Halloween candy.
The sight of it used to make my heart leap with joy. Now, it fills me with dread.
I’ve been off refined sugar for so long now that I really don’t want or like many treats sweetened with real sugar (trust me, I’ve taste-tested a few things. they taste weird now!). Still, it’s hard to resist aisles and aisles of candy… especially when it seems like EVERYBODY else you know is digging in without a thought in the world. And here I am, being good, constantly shaking my head and saying, “No.”
I just saw a blog post on a fitness blog I read, Undressed Skeleton, and she had these tips for eating Halloween candy. I think they sound pretty reasonable, so I thought I’d reblog them here.
- I’m going to allow myself two pieces everyday!
- Keeping the candy out of site!
- Only buying my least favorite kind!
See? Pretty reasonable.
If you click on the bolded title of the blog up there, you’ll also see a list of popular Halloween candies and their calories. Makes you think!
