Navigating a Guilt-Free Halloween with The BariatricPal Store
Halloween is approaching and it's time to consider how it will impact your choices. Will you succumb to sugar overload and regret it later, or will you indulge in moderation and enjoy a guilt-free holiday? Fortunately, The BariatricPal Store offers a selection of Halloween treats that allow you to have fun without compromising your health.
Does your workplace become a hub of candy and baked goods in the weeks leading up to Halloween? If so, you might be interested in low-sugar Baking Mixes that allow you to enjoy freshly baked treats guilt-free. With options like brownies, cookies, and cakes, you can say no to the sugary fare at work and satisfy your cravings in a healthier way.
Quick and Healthy Dinner
Did you know that Halloween is one of the busiest days for pizza delivery? Quick and kid-friendly meals like pizza, boxed macaroni and cheese, and PB and J sandwiches can be tempting as you rush out the door for trick-or-treating. However, there are healthier alternatives that are just as quick and delicious. Consider BariatricPal Protein Entrees like Vegetable Chili, Cheese Steak Pasta, Nacho Cheese Pasta, and Macaroni and Cheese. Another option is homemade pizza using Zero-Carb Bagels or Bread. You can also enjoy Protein Peanut Butter Powder with apples on Protein Bread for a nutritious and satisfying meal.
Curbing Candy Cravings
When it comes to Halloween itself, whether you're trick-or-treating, handing out candy, or attending a party, how can you resist the sugary delights while still having fun? The key is to redirect your focus and have healthier substitutes ready in case cravings strike.
- Keep a glass or bottle of water with you to keep your hands occupied.
- Engage in activities that don't revolve around eating, such as assisting children with their costumes, hiding during trick-or-treating, or helping hosts with serving and cleanup.
- Have your own stash of bariatric-friendly, low-sugar, and high-protein chocolates and candies. The BariatricPal Store offers a variety of options, including dark, milk, and white chocolate with or without peanuts, almonds, and caramel - satisfying any flavor preference.
Remember, Halloween doesn't have to be a weight-gain nightmare. By planning ahead and having a few treats from The BariatricPal Store, you can enjoy the holiday without feeling guilty when November rolls around.
