I love the calorie count website at About.com. It's where I got most of my nutrition education. Their featured article today teaches some tricks to keep from binging on Halloween candy. My favorite of those tricks is to mindfully eat a few bites of the candy you love.
I would like to add, also, some of my planned tricks for this year. My kiddos will be going to a church trunk or treat on Thursday, then we all will be going to a family party Friday night, then we will host a party on Sunday (Halloween). I plan to let the kids eat a few pieces of their candy at each function, then put all the rest in the pot to give out to trick-or-treaters who come to our house on Halloween. My kids love giving things away, so they get to share in the door-duty that night. I plan to buy a few extra bags of candy to give away, but I will not be buying anything that will be too tempting for me. No chocolate. Maybe Nerds and dum dums. I also plan to bake some fantastic desserts for our party Halloween night. I will save up so I can eat those. Next to homemade cinnamon bun caramel popcorn and toffee chocolate chip cookies, those old hershey's kisses don't look quite so tempting.
