Halloween Candy ~ healthier treats for healthier bodies
As we all know, that bag of candy sitting and waiting for tomorrow is loaded with preservatives, red dye 3, blue dye 1&3, yellow 5&6 (banned in most developed countries), corn syrup, glucose syrup, titanium dioxide, carnauba wax...
What's the big deal? you might ask. Certain synthetic food additives trigger learning, behavioral and health problems like sleep disorders, ADD & ADHD,asthma, headaches and bed wetting. Multiply this 'usual' problem by the outrageous increase of junk ingested into our bodies this time of year...no meds can mask the results.
SO, if you or your kids feel irritable, sick to the stomach, unnaturally jittery...know that you have just poisoned your precious bodies with all those bright, colorful, shiny treats.
Although the sugar in the following treats will still wreak havoc, you can find uncontaminated candy such as: Yummy Earth and Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans at WholeFoods Markets and specialty stores, or visit the www.NaturalCandyStore.com.
At the end of the day...and where it really matters, the top Halloween treat choice of ours is still that old chestnut ~ our favorite: Apples (see our entry from last Friday, October 28th for great apple recipes.)
