Healthy Halloween Treats!

With Halloween right around the corner and your costume finally picked out, it’s time to start preparing for the party!  Here’s some ideas on healthy snacks to keep everyone satisfied while feeling good too! Fruit and Veggie Platter:  Take your favorite fruits and vegetables and arrange them into your favorite Halloween icons like a Jack O’ Lantern or a skeleton.

Clementine Jack o’ Lanterns:  Peel enough clementines for your guests and then stick a small piece of celery into the top to act as the stem.  They look just like pumpkins!

Carrot Fingers:  Peel enough carrots for your guests and cut them in half.  Using whatever  dip you have chosen for the party, place a small amount at the top to stick either a pumpkin seed or sliced almond to look like a finger nail.

Banana Ghosts:  After peeling the bananas cut them in half.  Using cheerios or chocolate chips and peanut butter as a glue, stick them on the banana to make a spooky face!

Apple Mouths:  Once cutting enough red apples into slices, place 4-5 mini marshmallows between the two slices to look like teeth.  Fasten the two slices together using a tooth pick.

These healthy snacks will be just as big of a hit as your party will be!  Your guests won’t be able to keep their hands off of them!

Beach Ready Arms

Tones, strong arms not only give you confidence that you look good in your bathing suit...but weird, they are oh so functional :) Nothing goes better with that new bathing suit than sexy confidence & toned upper body. This is one of my favorite quickie exercises that give me not only loads of confidence, but keeps my upper body strong & toned.

Start in plank

Then lower yourself slowly downwards, stopping about half way down. This can be done on your knees to help keep the back straight, and do not forget the core strength!!

Push yourself back up to plank with an exhale, then press back into a down dog. Repeat 10 times & say goodbye to beach shy!
