Puritans Pride Prize Pack #Giveaway {Ends 11/5}

Are you looking for a healthier alternative to all of the candy and sugar this Halloween? I know I love a good sugar rush, but Halloween is a little over the top for me and to be honest my kids too. They usually get so much candy we seem to have to ration it out for months, but this Halloween I am excited to be able to share a few tricks I have learned to limit the sugar intake in our house thanks to . These ideas can be for the kids, adults or both to keep everyone a little healthier this Halloween.

The package I received from Puritan’s Pride included:
Sweetened Banana Chips
Dried Pineapple
Chocolate Soy Protein Isolate Powder
Roasted Unsalted Pumpkin Seeds
Organic Peppermint Tea

Tip #1 Keep healthy snacks around and available instead of candy and high sugar foods.

As you can see from the pictures my kids and I started to devour the pineapple, banana chips, and pumpkin seeds right out of the package. I think having healthy alternatives around instead of candy is the biggest tip for a low-sugar Halloween. If I don’t buy it my family can’t eat it right? So stick to your guns when you are at the grocery store and only buy the healthy items on your list, and when you do buy Halloween candy for a hide it so no one gets tempted before the big night.

Tip #2 Make a chocolate protein shake to fill you up so you are not tempted with chocolate bars.

My kids are used to having protein shakes throughout the day or as a healthy snack after school since we have been eating a higher protein diet, but seriously protein shakes are a great way to fill you up. If you are tempted by sweets or chocolate bars try having a Chocolate Protein shake to stay strong. I made a super delicious simple shake with almond/coconut milk as my base, a scoop of protein powder, a scoop of my greens from , and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yummo!! I really like that this protein mixes quickly and smoothly with nut milk or any other base you put it with. The kids gave it a thumbs up too!

Tip #3 Use herbal teas to flavor your water to help you drink more water

I love the flavor of herbal tea and I really enjoy the energizing zip I get when I smell and drink peppermint tea. If you have a hard time drinking your daily amount of water try making a large batch of herbal tea on the stove and enjoying one cup hot and then keeping the rest in the fridge for a cool refreshing alternative to sodas. It works!

  1. Debra Holloway says:

    I use Stevia or honey in place of sugar. These replace the white sugar and the sweetness.

  2. Darlene Owen says:

    I try to keep sugar out of the food I cook.

  3. Georgette C says:

    I was the world’s biggest aspartame addict..but I’ve finally kicked it…due to using stevia or just plain cane sugar, if it’s around….. that has helped. I also use MIO flavor additive to put in water so I stay hydrated with water and not drink one soda after the next, as I used to … so far, so good. And I’ve lost more weight since I’ve done that as well. :)

  4. watch your self after Thanksgiving so you can indulge a bit

  5. The only way I’m great about avoiding sugar is drinking my coffee black. Definitely trying to get healthier, and this is a great inspiration.

  6. Lorena Keech says:

    I drink a glass of water for every glass of wine I drink, and I eat a small meal, usually yogurt or fruit, before we go to a party where there will be tempting food.

  7. I make my own healthy foods and use fruits and natural sugars like honey instead.

  8. john hutchens says:

    My number one tip is never to go to holiday parties on an empty stomach. That helps me stay away from sugary sweets

  9. Drink a glass or two of water before every meal. It will help to trick your stomach that it is full to intake unnecessary calories!

  10. keeping healthy snacks handy

  11. I limit myself to one sweet a day

  12. I try to limit my sugar and only have one
    Sweet thing per day during the holidays!

  13. Brenda G. says:

    Eat lots of fiber to suppress cravings.

  14. wen budro says:

    I try to balance the sugar out with more vegetables and by drinking more water.

  15. Emily Acker says:

    Use stevia in some goodies.

  16. My tip is to commit to eating a healthy meal for every indulgent meal that you eat.

  17. Stephanie o'day says:

    I usually don’t.. to be real honest. Most of the time I just go workout after!

  18. Elizabeth says:

    I try to keep junk food out of the house and use honey or stevia as sweeteners if we make treats.

  19. Teresa Archer says:

    Keep more healthy foods in the house.

  20. lindsay hess says:

    I say Make sure you are eating those sweets in moderation and not just eating everything because its the Holidays. Make sure you set aside some time to work that sugar off!!

  21. I eat before going to parties so that I’m not tempted to eat more than I should while I’m there. If I’m already full, it won’t be hard to refuse extra treats. :)

  22. Annmarie W. says:

    Before going to a party, have a little salad at home so as not to fill up on ‘junk’ when you’re out!

  23. Eat something before the going to a party. I always have fruit and yogurt in the house and this helps a lot.

  24. Diana Hatch says:

    Make sure half your plate is filled with vegetables

  25. I eat less sugar and exercise more!

  26. allyson tice says:

    I package all sweet snacks in individual portioned packs! Helps save on calories for mwe and sugar for the kiddos!

  27. Peggy Johnson says:

    I eat something healthy before going to parties so I am not tempted to over indulge in sweets

  28. Holly Thomas says:

    I eat healthy during the week before and then the day of with family is my “free day” where I can eat anything I want. I also try to eat more of the vegetables then anything else but I still am able to enjoy anything I want!

  29. try to use fruit in creative dessert recipe

  30. Amanda B. says:

    I limit myself to my favorites and skip the rest I’m not so thrilled about.

  31. Drink lots of water – people often mistake thirst for hunger so this will help cut down on snacking.

  32. lissa crane says:

    I like to make healthy soups during the colder, holiday months with lots of veggies in them. Soups not only warm you up, but they tend to fill you up as well, and my kiddo’s are more likely to go for a yummy soup then a cold salad during the winter!

  33. It’s a bout portion control and choosing the healthier options

  34. TallulahJane says:

    I try to add honey to a lot of my meals…this gives me the natural sugar.

  35. Donna Teller says:

    I try to use natural sweeteners instead of sugar.

  36. Julie Waldron says:

    Have fruit/vegetable trays at holiday gatherings.

  37. I don’t have any good tip. My favorite way eating healthier during sugar hype holidays is drinking a lot of water before eating something I like :)
    Thank You for the chance

  38. Nicole Sender says:

    Limit your sweets and exercise!

  39. Allison S. says:

    Sweets are pretty much unavoidable during the holidays. My remedy is to pick up the exercise.

  40. Breanna Pollard says:

    I eat in moderation.

  41. Angela Saver says:

    I stock the house with healhty foods,drink a lot of water & focus on only eating when I’m hungry!
