The struggle is real when it comes to staying away from the sweets and it can be hard to avoid eating halloween candy. The holidays are the hardest time to stay committed to clean eating, but don’t worry—I am sharing my fit foodie tips for warding off those seasonal temptations like halloween candy! These suggestions have helped me avoid Halloween candy, and I hope you find them helpful, too.
The best way to avoid Halloween candy is to have healthier fit foodie alternatives on hand. When doing a clean eating diet (or any sort of diet, for that matter), you never want to feel deprived. Feeling like you are missing out is the fastest way to fall off the wagon.
Here are my fit foodie tips on how to avoid eating Halloween candy:
- Make yourself some diet-friendly treats: like this 4-ingredient fudge—when the sweet tooth hits and you have been eyeing that bowl of Halloween candy in the office all day, one of the best fixes is a small piece of this fudge. It is really rich and just a small piece will kill that craving without killing your diet.
- Keep full: filling up on good stuff is so important. When we get hungry, we are more prone to making bad food decisions. Go ahead and fill up your plate with lots of veggies! There is no harm in eating lots of the good stuff, and it will keep you from reaching for the sweets.
- Roast some pumpkin seeds: pumpkin seeds are special to this holiday! We usually roast them with salt, but you can also season them with cinnamon and a little maple syrup. These seeds are perfect for clean light snacking while watching a scary movie or waiting on trick-or-treaters.
- Baked apples: sometimes we forget how good simple ingredients can be! Just de-core an apple and cut it in half, sprinkle it with some cinnamon, and bake it in the oven. Baked apples have the warm and cozy feeling of apple pie, without all the extra sugar. The cinnamon will make your house smell good, too! Here is another recipe for stuffed baked apples if you want to make it a little heartier.
- The most import tip to avoid halloween candy, Don’t give in! Those tiny size candies are the worst. It’s extremely easy to say, “they are so small, I will just have one.” But, chances are, you can’t stop at one. Before you know it, you will have lost count. When you are trying to cut out sugar, it’s best to not even slip a little bit. Sugar and sweets are incredibly addicting. Use some of the tips I gave here to have better fit foodie alternatives on hand. Give yourself something to look forward to during the day, that way you don’t feel deprived.
I first started clean eating two years ago in September, a week before going out of town for a wedding and right before “yummy food season.” But I was ready for the change and finding these work-arounds saved me. I began to feel better and better and the clean eating got easier and easier. Now it’s just the way I eat and I never feel like I am denying myself. I am so passionate about clean eating I just want to share my fit foodie tips with the world! I know it’s only Halloween and learning how to avoid Halloween candy is the first of many holiday struggles, but don’t worry, I have a list of “clean eating” Thanksgiving sides I want to share with you and some super yummy, guilt-free Christmas cookies, too. I hope these tips on how to avoid that Halloween candy help!
