It’s Halloween – What are you giving out? Something Healthy?

Now that I live a healthy lifestyle, people ask me a lot of questions about nutrition.  Particularly regarding what I eat. Whenever Halloween comes up I am often asked about what I give out to the Trick or Treaters.  I guess they are expecting me to say that I give out sweet potatoes or something else that I eat regularly.  Just because I eat a certain way doesn’t mean that I’m going to rob some little kid from the fun of extorting me into giving them candy.  The way I look at it is that if I gave out something like apples, than they would probably throw them at my car the next time they saw me drive by.  I remember when I was a kid there were probably only about 2 houses that gave out apples and they usually ended up being bad mouthed by all of the little kids in the neighborhood.  On the other hand if you were the guy who gave out big Butterfinger bars than all of the kids would respect you for life.  What you give out on Halloween is all about status.  You’re on top if you give out huge candy bars or a handful of them.  Keeping this in mind, I have to give out candy.

How to decide what candy to give out.  Well none of it is good for you so do you go with something that you like?  Maybe you go with something that you don’t like, just so that you don’t eat it.  If that’s the case, I’m handing out Jolly Ranchers.  It’s not really the taste that I don’t like, but those stupid things will break your teeth if you aren’t careful.  Once that happens there is no way that you will ever eat one of them again.  If they don’t break your teeth they stick to them for about 2 hours.  Everything you eat for the rest of the night will have that Jolly Rancher Taste.  I could go with Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups and Butterfingers.  The kids will scoop those up fast.  But what if I barely get any kids.  I’m stuck with candy that might tempt me just enough so that I cave in and have to eat it.  I actually like to experiment quite a bit.  What if I take a handful of Butterfingers and blend them up with my Muscle Pharm Combat Birthday Cake Protein Powder.  Come to think of it that might not be a bad idea.  I protein powder to my candy or candy to my protein powder.  Yea, I’m eating a bunch of sugar, but I am getting my protein in.

Screw it.  I’m turning the lights out and pretending that I’m not home.  Can’t wait to try out my new recipe.
