Avoiding the Terrors of Halloween...and PMS

Halloween marks the unofficial start of the holidays and that means the beginning of feasting season. There’s nothing more frightening than me left alone with a basket filled with trick-or-treat candies.

Halloween is the ultimate will test, especially if you’re PMSing. Forget moderation as there’s an abundant amount of sweets everywhere— the check out at a convenient store, on your way out of a restaurant, and even in your own kitchen cabinet. There’s just no escaping it. Although you may think a day of indulging won't make a difference, beware that a day can easily turn into a week with all the left over candies. So instead, try and make your Halloween a little bit healthier so you won’t feel as devilish later.

Most nutritionist will suggest opting for an apple instead of a candy bar, and while an apple is certainly healthier, let’s be real, who actually takes that advice? An apple instead of your favorite chocolate bar is not a convincing case, so instead try upgrading your average apple. Here is an amazing recipe to make a vegan, naturally sweetened chocolate covered apple. Add some nuts for texture and healthy fats.

Ingredients you will need: 

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of melted Earth Balance Spread (vegan butter) OR melted coconut oil OR butter
Instructions: 
  1. Create a double boiler, fill a small pot with water, and place a glass bowl over the pot of boiling water
  2. Mix all the ingredients until they melt
  3. Dip the apple into the chocolate
  4. Top it off with your favorite treats
  5. Place them on a plate and leave it in the freezer for 10 minutes
  6. Enjoy!

Now you don’t have to sacrifice the fun of Halloween to stay healthy!
