5 Guilt-Free Halloween Treats

Halloween is just a few days away. The bowls of candies and chocolates have already made their way to staff lunchrooms, board rooms and desks. You’ve been working hard in the gym and you deserve a treat gosh darnit!

Here are my 5 favourite guilt-free Halloween (or anytime) treats to enjoy, without feeling bad, all coming in under 150 calories.

5) 150 calories – 16 Sour Patch Kids. Also my favourite movie snack, you’ll gobble up 16 fairly quickly as they are quite small and the sourness is highly addictive. Have a glass of H2O along with this to avoid going over board.

4) 84 calories – 2 Dove Dark Chocolate Promises. You get the benefit of dark chocolate’s antioxidants all while satisfying that sweet-tooth.

3) 100 calories – My favourite chocolate, two and a half mini Reese’s cups (hate to admit I have eaten an entire tray of the big-size one too many times) or two mini bite-size Snicker’s bars.

2) 50 calories – Pucker-up for two Hershey’s kisses (plain or almond) or get your tootsie roll on with two mini Tootsie rolls.

1) 125 calories – Trick-or-Trail Mix. A DIY treat that you can put together on your own. I make enough for the entire month (you can prepare weekly if you prefer) that way I always have a healthy treat in my desk, purse, gym-bag and even in my son’s diaper bag.

Recipe: Mix 10 raw almonds, 1 tbsp raw sunflower seeds, 1 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds, 1 tsp cacao nibs, 1 tbsp goji berries and 1 tsp unsweetened shredded coconut. Bundle them up into individual snack-pack bags. Delicious, nutritious and guilt-free anytime of year!
