For those of you following the Whole30 Version 3.0, this weekend might prove to be a test of willpower. Halloween candy is everywhere, calling out to you from perky colored wrappers in perfectly portioned bite-sized pieces. So for those of you stocking up for trick-or-treaters, or dealing with an influx of candy in your child’s own bag o’ booty, we are here to remind you of one simple fact.
YOU CAN HAVE HALLOWEEN CANDY ANY TIME YOU WANT.
You’re a grown-up. You earn your own money. And if you wanted a Snickers, a Kit-Kat, or a bag of Peanut M&Ms, you can walk right into any grocery store, gas station or convenience mart and buy one. Halloween candy is not special. It’s not unique. It’s not homemade, or a once-a-year treat, and we’re pretty sure it doesn’t invoke fond childhood memories of sitting around the dining room table while Mom pulls things out of the oven.
Which means, Whole30′ers… you will NOT be taken out by a bag of peanut M&Ms. Not this time around. No slips, no cheats, no excuses. You’re in this to slay the Sugar Dragon once and for all, and you are tougher than any Halloween candy.
For those of you on the Whole30, are you giving candy away during this trick-or-treat season… or are you opting for a better, healthier choice for the children who visit your house? Post your best Halloween alternative trick-or-treat give-a-way and win a free Whole30 Success Guide!
The winning comment will be chosen on Monday, so be creative… and realistic. (Nobody can afford 200 Paleo Kits to give to trick-or-treaters.)
