As Halloween Approaches, The Sugary Temptations Never End

Fall is finally here and we are really loving it! It’s so nice to have a reprieve from the sweltering summer heat and we’ve fallen back into our regular schedule. Sarah, our four-year-old is back in preschool five days a week and our nanny is just so great with the girls that I don’t feel as sad leaving them each morning to head to work.

What are some of your favorite things about fall? Sarah is already excited for Halloween and has been begging us to help her carve a pumpkin every time we go to the grocery store. Of course with Halloween comes all the delicious candy that I’m trying to avoid. Reese’s and Tootsie Rolls and caramel apples – oh my! While my Tummy Tuck Belt helps me appear slimmer just by wearing it, my goal is to also eat healthier. So while everyone else (i.e. my husband) is chowing down on sugary Halloween treats like my favorite, candy corn, I’ll be eating carrots. Hey, at least they’re orange! I’ve also been using Pinterest to find some healthy meals that the entire family can enjoy. Have any of our readers used Pinterest for meal planning? Let me know what your favorite healthy recipes are, I’m always ready to try something new!
