You can have a healthy Halloween!Halloween is a time when sugar and candy are running rampant, overshadowing the real lure and mischief of the holiday. If you find yourself being drawn to the sweet treats, you might be lacking in the trickery and mischief.All the "being good" pressure that we put on ourselves is enough to make anyone rebel - and understandably so! When you don't allow yourself to break the rules or playfully be "bad," your mischievousness can emerge in a self-sabatoging way. Which is why the "treat" tends to overshadow the "trick" during Halloween.
Have a Heathy Halloween!
On your path to hormonal balance, it's not about being perfect with what you eat and how you care for your female body.

Wouldn't it be more fun and satisfying to find other outlets of mischief that don't leave you feeling gross or guilty or sad?Halloween is the perfect time to concoct ways to create fun, harmless mischief in your everyday life.
