Healthy Eating Tips, Tricks and more!

I just got my first Halloween party invite. Not that I'm a party pooper, but I'm not a huge fan of dressing up, so getting an invite to a "costume-required" party was inevitable. Whether it's a school function, company party or social event, we are often asked to bring something delicious for everyone. This is when the holiday excuses for bad eating start coming out...

This season, don't let Halloween pull you off track from your healthy diet!

Here are some of the quick and easy recipes that I have found (on Diet.com) to be perfect substitutions for sugary, fatty Halloween party foods:

Spooky Sugar CookiesSpooky Sugar Cookies: Who can resist cookies, especially cookie dough! These guilt-free cookies are a great way to play up the holiday and you won't have to spend hours at the gym working them off. Enjoy!


Pumpkin Oat MuffinsPumpkin Oat Muffins: Instead of bringing cupcakes filled with sugar and fat, dazzle everybody with Pumpkin Oat Muffins. With a great pumpkin flavor, these are the perfect fall treat! Plus, they have less calories and more protein than a cupcake or regular muffin.


Caramel Apple DipCaramel Apple Dip: Dips are a hit at most parties. This recipe combines the dipping factor with the yummy taste of a caramel apple. A regular caramel apples can cost you upwards of 400 calories, but this healthy dip is only 55 calories/serving, plus the apple (typically 80-120 calories) or other healthy snack you choose.

My friends have absolutely loved these tasty treats, even more when I told them how many calories I was saving them.

Now, does anyone have any good ideas for costumes??
