Each Halloween I honestly consider handing out organic red apples to trick-or-treaters. Too much? Nah.
I mean…is it so awful that I’m looking out for their health/teeth?! Geez.
Ok, ok, enjoy some candy tonight…but at least eat the fun-sized version?
If we’re talking candy, my ultimate favie is frozen gummy bears [ remember this post? ]. Any gummy gets me. These Trader Joe-bought, ghoulie tummies are spooktacular, delish, and they’re made with real fruit [ & w/o sickie preservatives ]. So. Why freeze them? Because they’re hard to chew. When you’re watching a movie, shoving gummy’s in you mouth, you end up overeating. Welllll, if they’re frozen, the ghouls take way longer to eat. Chewy bitches. Ta-da.
Other options: throw the frozen, creepy crawlers in a vodka martini, a glass of bubbly, or freeze them in ice cube trays [ like this ].
The Super Bowl is Sunday & I could not be more excited to relax, have a few drinks, & eat some delicious food. I am sure there are countless options for SB grub, but these are some quick snacks that won’t provide a severe muffin top.
+ Cucumber Slices w/ Cheese: cut a Hot House cucumber up & add low-fat cheddar string cheese, Laughing Cow light wedges & swiss cheese to slices.
+ Mixed Fruit Salad: combine berries, pineapple & watermelon. Add a full Meyer lemon, Greek 0% yogurt, & a tablespoon of honey. Mix thoroughly.
+ Salsamole: buy fresh pico de gallo mix. Cut four avocados up & mash with a fork. Squeeze the juice from two limes. Add avocado & lime juice to pico de gallo mix. Mix up. Sprinkle a few dashes of sea salt. Top with cilantro. Chips of choice: brown rice chips.
