Boo Hoo Halloween? Try These Tricked Out Treats

Try these tricked out treats for YOUR Happy Halloween!
Each Halloween, we are bombarded by ads for chocolate and candy for the Trick-or-Treaters and some how, WE end up eating more than the kids! So this year, you can head off calamity by having a few goodies of your own hand. Not only do they taste delicious but they are good for you and can be a healthy treat anytime.

NeoCell Beauty Bursts in Chocolate Mint and Super Fruit Punch
Beauty Bursts - NeoCell
These come in Chocolate Mint and Super Fruit Punch and pack a whopping 2,000 mgs of absorbable protein and collagen in just two chews. Both nutrients are needed for skin, hair and joint health but Beauty Bursts also contain Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid. A very easy way to put the trick on aging skin! 

Usana Delicious Protein Snacks
Usana Fudge Delite
This and the Choco-Chip are definitely my favorites. These have a really pleasing cookie-dough texture but are surprisingly low glycemic. Each protein snack contains: 12 g protein, 180 calories and 6 g of fat. A yummy alternative when everyone else is gorging on higher calorie treats.

Usana ChocoChip
Dark Chocolate Energy Chews - CocoaWell
I'm not a huge fan of dark chocolate but I like these. These are naturally flavored chews that give you a little boost of energy. They contain 100mg of Chocamine which is a proprietary low-fat cocoa extract with added herbs and spices. Just 20 calories per chew, they contain green tea for natural energy and antioxidant support.

Godiva Hot Cocoa made MUCH healthier with EVO Coconut Oil!
Godiva Hot Cocoa + Coconut Oil
This combination has been known to stop a raging chocoloholic in her tracks. Sometimes sipping something hot and rich can fill the bill more than a whole chocolate bar. Sit back on Halloween night and enjoy some hot cocoa.  Here's my recipe for the best hot cocoa you'll ever taste:

Gourmet Hot Cocoa

3 Tablespoons Godiva Hot Cocoa
8oz of 2% Milk, Heated
1 Teaspoon Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil

Dissolve the hot cocoa mix completely into your hot milk. Add in your EVO Coconut Oil. Enjoy!
