Happy Birthday Dad (a.k.a. Mac) and National Chocolate Day! I doubt it’s a coincidence BOTH fall on the same day! 🙂 Celebrate with a couple extra chocolate chip morsels!
Some Tricks to NOT “Over-Treat”!
Happy Halloween Week!! While Halloween can be the spookiest holiday, here are a few tricks to avoid over-treating:
1.) Eat before you go out. Eat a balanced whole food #MORSELICIOUS meal, even if just a rainbow salad and nut butter on top of a sweet potato! Believe me, that’s filling AND tasty AND healthy! It can also satisfy your sweet craving. Last year, I made chocolate-peanut butter smoothies and it hit the spot! Of course, these are just a couple of quick and easy suggestions.
2.) Be different. Consider giving non-food items instead of sugary candy. Why be like everyone else?
3) The next few months – Halloween through Christmas – are filled with temptations that can sabotage your health and wellness goals. Keep fresh veggies and fruits in a container or bowl, easily within reach and sight. Sweet peppers satisfy a crunchy craving, as do freshly baked kale chips. Pack a bag of nuts or pumpkin seeds and always have on hand. Make some of Mo’s fancy spa water with fresh lemon slices, cucumbers and if you’re extra fancy, a sprig o’ mint.
Make your own MORSELICIOUS treats or hot cuppa mojo at home.

Remember, we still have Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza & New Year’s to celebrate! 🙂
Have a MORSELICIOUS Halloween!
