Get ready because it's almost Halloween! The fun holiday allows our kiddos to run around in their precious costumes, buzz with the excitement of all the creative outfits & play makeup and eat a little too much candy they will be getting later in the evening. With all that sugar coming in the door, it can be easy to allow ourselves to slip and fall into consuming much more than we intended! Today, you can shift your mindset to the positive: Halloween does not have to be so bad after all!
Here are a few healthy Halloween recipes you can try this week! Enjoy fellowship with friends and family and focus on our motto "all things in moderation". Being mindful and having self- control some days is not easy but the life- long rewards of making good choices and not overindulging will be worth it in the end! You can do this- believe in yourself that YOU CAN make good choices and enjoy a happy and healthier halloween.
