If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my October #Unprocessed journey, it’s that The Chef and I do a pretty good job of eating unprocessed.
Are we perfect? Absolutely not. Are we okay with allowing some processed food in here and there? Absolutely. Do we make conscious decisions as to what processed foods we’re okay with and those that we’re not? Once again, absolutely.
And I think that’s the whole point of October #Unprocessed … figuring out what works for and your family, taking tiny steps to become more unprocessed as your situation allows, and learning to be content with your choices — no matter what they are.
Halloween is a perfect time to figure out what works for you and your family. For me, there are some traditional Halloween candies that I’m still okay with eating once in awhile, and there are many I’m not — it all depends on the ingredient list and what I’m comfortable with consuming.
Would I prefer to eat semi-unprocessed, homemade versions of my favorite Halloween treats? Of course … and that’s totally possible!
There are two days ’til Halloween so I’ve rounded up my favorite homemade Halloween candy recipes … and now I just need to decide which one to make for our neighborhood trick-or-treaters!
Too busy to make homemade candy for the trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood, but still want to go semi-unprocessed? Don’t worry … I’ve got you covered.
I’m a big fan of Yummy Earth’s natural and organic candies; made with real fruit extracts and planet-friendly ingredients — and free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes — I’m happy to give Yummy Earth candy to my two favorite kids in the world, my nephews … and I enjoy eating Yummy Earth candy too!
