Halloween is coming! In only two days, the ghosts, goblins, and some of the spookiest terrors of all (CANDY!) will be roaming the streets … but don’t be scared! We are here to give you some of our favorite tips and tricks for you and your trick-or-treaters this year!

Swapping those high calorie, low nutrient foods like candy and sweets for healthier foods with the same taste is the perfect way to hit all of those cravings while staying healthy!

Want something sour? Try green apples instead of sour candy for a boost of fiber for long lasting energy! (For a different sweet and sour twist, chop a green apple into ¼- ½ inch pieces top with pumpkin pie spice and microwave for 5 minutes on high and then mix with your favorite yogurt.)

Something chewy? Dried fruits of all kinds are a great replacement for gummy candies, especially with their Vitamin C content!

Do you have any other Halloween swaps to satisfy your cravings without spooking your diet?
