So, it’s that time of year, my favorite holiday, Halloween is upon us. I love fall, the colors, the crisp air, the busy year winding down and of course, Halloween candy.
Now, I don’t have children but I once was one. Having a big bag or bowl of assorted sugary goodness makes kids of all ages happy. But as adults, we can’t eat it like we used to and not have consequences, sugar rushes aren’t what they used to be, dental work is expensive, inflammation is not attractive. Yet, taking candy from your childrens’ Halloween baskets is a time honored tradition, all in the name of safety of course .
So, if you’re going to “closely monitor” what’s in your childrens’ baskets, here are some suggestions worth “inspecting.”
Just a few favorite candy choices
Twix Right or left? How does one choose between the two? Personally, I don’t. Both it is. Not as much healthy fat as the Snickers and I’m okay with that.
These are just a few of the thousands of choices out there to “inspect.” The ones listed above all come in mini sizes, easy to rationalize the caloric intake. But, hey, it’s Halloween, whether you’re a kid or a kid stuck in an adult body, enjoying the spirt of the holiday is worth indulging in.
