When you think about Halloween, do all the sweet treats come to mind? As nice as it is to have a selection of candies or baked goods around it’s sometimes way too much of a temptation – especially as we get closer to our health and fitness goals.
Balance out the sweet desserts with some healthy meals that help you fill up on nutritious vegetables and lean protein – while still staying in a festive mood! This fun stuffed bell pepper recipe from Super Sister Fitness is especially spooky and tasty.
