Healthy Halloween Candy

I am talkin about THE REAL STUFF here…Not some substitute for candy! I know that many of you (Heck, even myself) might slip your hand into the candy dish tonight or maybe even “manage” how much your kids eat.

RIPPEDCLUB isnt about “dont eat this, dont eat that”…its about staying focused on your goals! So I wanted to post my choices for the BEST “Healthy Halloween Candy” out there so that you can enjoy the holiday by not feeling so restricted.

But before you go thinkin that I just gave you an all out pass to pig out…I did not! LOL, I know how you think, cuz I think the same way!

 

Healthy Halloween Candy Tips:

#1 – Fit it into your macros! – It really is that simple…make it fit into your daily targets for proteins/carbs/fats. If you go over on your fats, try and stay under on your carb intake.

#2 – Moderation! – The candy that I have “approved” as a healthy halloween candy is a good choice ONLY if done in moderation. Dont overdo it.

#3 – If you cant eat the candy in moderation…dont eat it! Plain and simple…if the temptation is too strong and you KNOW that you have a tendency to over-indulge…just stay away from it completely! Choose a protein bar or fruit for a snack and that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

 

7 Healthy Halloween Candy Treats

3-musketeers#1 – 3 Musketeers Minis – 1 Fun Size bar only has 63 calories, 2 grams of fat, 11 grams sugar. This is probably the lightest of the “candy bar” choices.

 

 

 

 

peppat#2 – York Peppermint Patty – 1 full-size bar contains 165 calories, 3 grams of fat, 27 grams sugar. This is pretty light for a full size bar. You get the chocolate and fresh breath as a bonus!

 

 

 

 

halloween peeps#3 – Halloween Pumpkin Peeps – 1 marshmallow contains 16 calories, 0 fat, 3.5 grams sugar. These have very few calories, but keep in mind its still pure sugar.

 

 

 

 

Tootsie-Rolls#4 – Tootsie Rolls – 1 small Tootsie Roll contains 50 calories, 1 grams fat, 10g sugar. At 50 calories each, the calorie count can really add up… So be careful and PLAN on how many you will eat.

 

 

 

 

peanut m&m's#5 – Peanut M&M’s – 1 Fun Size Pouch contains 90 calories, 5 grams fat, 9 grams sugar. Peanut M&M’s aren’t a bad choice when you think about the fact that their peanuts (which contain protein, which provides a small boost of energy). The fun size package is a great way to limit yourself too!

 

 

 

 

jolly rancher#6 – Jolly Ranchers – 3 Jolly Rancher candies contain 70 calories, 0 fat and 11 grams of sugar Jolly Rancher candies offer last a long time if you dont chew on them. 3 of these could easily last for hours and keep you away from the “other stuff” that you are trying to avoid.

 

 

 

 

assorted-blow-pops#7 – Blow Pops – One Blow Pop contains 60 calories, 0 fat, and 13 grams of sugar. Lollipops are a great way to keep your mouth busy (and not eating other high calorie foods). Not to mention, you get gum when you get to the center! WIN!!!
