Our wellness coach, Safia Morsly-Fikai, has a few tips for keeping your Halloween healthy:
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! However, it’s also the time of the year where we all struggle with the “sweet and candy” devils. Don’t let the parties or the super fun Trick-or-Treating derail you from your healthy habits with these simple rules:
1. Go to your Halloween party or Treat-or-Treating with your kids on a full stomach: Have a proper meal beforehand and indulge with a healthy dessert such as goji berries, a fruit leather, some raisins or a piece of dark chocolate with cranberries.
2. Get rid of the candy bags as soon as you get home and replace them with healthier options.
3. Stay away from the leftover candies brought by colleagues at work: this is a lingering threat that keeps staring at you waaay after the holiday. Bring your own healthy snacks and stay on track. If you succumb to temptation once or twice, it’s not the end of the world! Bring yourself back on track, NO GUILT!
4. Include a workout (or 2) during the Halloween week end!

2. Stir in vegenaise, mustard, salt, and pepper.
3. Cut whole olive in half.
4. Put one half on mashed yolk for the spiders body.
