You are not crazy if you think that pumpkin has taken over the grocery store, your local Starbucks, and maybe even your home. Now that we enter the fall weather and holiday season, we are bombarded with pumpkin, Halloween, and pounds of candy.
Don’t let the holidays get in the way of your healthy lifestyle. There are Halloween treats you can make at home that won’t hurt your waistline. We spoke with registered dietitian, exercise physiologist, and expert consultant Felicia Stoler about how to keep your diet in check when the trick-or-treating season takes over.
“By changing up the foods you eat during the fall holiday season, you can keep your taste buds satisfied while feeding your body vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein,” Stoler said.
Stoler let us in on her favorite Halloween-inspired treats that are healthy and perfect for snacks or an after-dinner treat. “Use Pinterest to find great recipes and ideas for inventive and creative ways to make the presentation of food fun for everyone.” Stoler said.
