Healthy Halloween Tips from NTB Trucking

Eating right on the road is always hard. Bringing food from home is even harder if your house is filled with Halloween candy. So, before you go out and buy candy (or “borrow” it from your children), keep in mind these healthy options.

 

Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate

Some studies show that the antioxidants in dark chocolate may improve blood flow and blood pressure. So if you’re looking for an excuse to eat chocolate in moderation, consider the varieties with more cacao.

Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

A healthy twist on Reese’s cups, the dark chocolate and organic ingredients make it a (slightly) healthier option. As always, snack in moderation. If you do enjoy a serving of these sweets, you’ll still be consuming 230 calories, but you’ll also get 4 grams of protein.

UnReal Dark Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Peanut Butter

Non-GMO, gluten-free, corn-free, soy-free, no artificial dyes, and under 100 calories? If you need a sweet treat, this might be your best bet.

Caramel or Candy Apples

Wrap up all the vitamins and fiber of a fresh apple with a Halloween classic. If you’re counting calories, candy apples have about 70 calories fewer than caramel apples, though some studies believe the red dye in candy apples may be unhealthy.

 

Of course, you could always just eat a regular apple for a filling, healthy snack. If it helps your Halloween spirit, you could carve an apple into a jack-o-lantern. And if you’re looking for a trucking company that cares about you and your health, apply to drive with NTB today!
