Halloween Candy…Trick or Treat? October 26, 2011

Oh my goodness it’s that time a year again.  Your kids gather all of those tempting treats in one spooky night just to leave you with a large bowl full of temptation night after night!!!  And not just candy, but all of those sweet treats that bring you back to your childhood.  We think one piece won’t hurt, but with almost every candy being bite size… “just one” usually turns into an amount that you wouldn’t disclose to your closest friends. So, what do we do?  We don’t want our hard work of healthy eating and mindful physical activity to be blown away in one night, right?  Here are some suggestions:

1.  Everyone in the family is allowed one treat per night for a week.  Whatever is left can be donated to your, or significant other’s work office.

2.  Everyone selects 5 of their top picks from the bowl… go first, because they did the work……donate the remainders to a local community center for their patrons.

3.  Create individual bags made of similar candies.  Store them somewhere where the eyes don’t get ahead of the brain, and save them for that next family movie night. 

The moral of the story…..there’s nothing funny about a Treat that plays a Trick on the size of your behind!  If you have any ideas that work well for your family, please share them with us.  YOUYOGA wishes you and your family a Safe and Happy Halloween!!!
