1-pumpkin-girl-003Halloween is getting close and there is a big bowl of (adorable, delicious) unhealthy candy staring me right in the face. Every day that candy tempts me to come closer and have just one bite. That candy has a million tricks up its sleeve to make me want it even more than one bite. How does that candy make the work day seem longer? How does that candy make the alarm go off even earlier? How does that candy keep the laundry basket overflowing always?

However that candy tempts you, we must resist (at least try to!).

To help you steer clear of the candy bowl, we gathered some Fall inspired snacks that are delicious and nutritious to keep the refined sugar cravings to a minimum.
