What’s Your Favorite Treat?

What’s Your Favorite Treat?

It’s that ghoulish time of year again (already) when we can pretend to be someone, or something, we’re not. Take a risk, get out of our comfort zone, scare people.

Or keep it simple and enjoy the treats instead.

Last October, Instacart reported that 116 TONS of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were purchased in this country. Those little delicacies walked away as the #1 Halloween candy.

The next most popular treat purchased during the 2021 Halloween season was plain M&M’s, with 94 tons sold. The peanut variety came in 3rd at 92 tons.

That’s a lot of candy. Bet it outranked vegetable purchases.   

Indiana’s favorite was the Reese’s.

Mr. Non-Compliant loves plain M&M’s. And Reese’s. Guess I’ll be handing out some of each to the little—and not so little—monsters that show up on Halloween.

Now I just need to work on my costume…

A Challenge for This Week

I’m a realist. I know that many of you will have Halloween candy in bowls decorating your coffee and end tables.

I also know that the candy is not just for the little goblins that show up on your doorstep.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is this: roast a big batch of vegetables to help balance out your candy intake. If you can, make enough for a couple meals.

You’ll probably even enjoy them.

The Struggle is Real

Losing weight and keeping it off is hard.

There are numerous weight loss programs that help with meals, psychology, apps—all designed to help you reach your goals.

Then what? For some, the weight stays off and all is well.

For others, the struggle to maintain their desired weight is more of a challenge. Add the upcoming holidays into the mix and—well, party over.

If this scenario is a familiar one for you or someone you know, I can help.

Together, we’ll design a way of life that takes on the battle of weight loss once and for all.

The best part: it’s simple and you get to enjoy a variety of foods that are tasty AND healthy. And yes, we’ll even create a plan to navigate the holiday buffets in a way that makes sense for you. 

In addition to personal coaching, my programs include kitchen makeovers (of the non-construction variety), kitchen coaching (we cook together), grocery shopping trips/tips and more.

If you have a Mr. or Mrs. Non-Compliant in your life, we can tackle this as a team. Weight loss is easier when your Significant Other is on board.

Want to lose (instead of gain) weight during the holidays? Let’s get started. Shoot me an email.

Enjoy your vegetables…and your Halloween treats.

Much love,
Health Coach Carol
