My Year By Design

The journey to living by design.

Happy Halloween!

Remember folks, Eat by Design is 80% of the time or better so it’s ok to have a little treat today, (moderation, moderation, moderation!)

candy in moderation

However, if you’re looking to stick to your plan you could always candy some bacon. Yum-yum!

If you’re a little worried about this situation for your kids:

here are a list of places where you can donate some of that candy to help others.

In London, Ontario:

London Food Bank

Ronald McDonald House of Southwestern Ontario

Across Canada:

Cash for Candy

Canada Red Cross

Ronald McDonald House

For our American Friends:

Any Soldier

Operation Gratitude

Operation Shoebox

Halloween Candy Buy Back

Everyone:

Check with your local dentist. For example, Forest Hill Orthodontics in Toronto, Ontario posted this to their Facebook page:

“Halloween is around the corner! Be sure to save your candy for our annual Swap Your Sweets contest. Donate your Halloween candy to a good cause by dropping it off at our office. Forest Hill Orthodontics will donate $1.00 per each pound of candy to a jackpot. The school that brings in the most candy wins the entire jackpot up to a maximum of $1,000! You too will receive a reward of 10 Bruno Bucks for every pound that you donate. Candy will be donated to a third world country. Candy drop off is between November 1st and 22nd.”

I’d like to think that if I had kids, I’d let them have some candy and then donate some to people less fortunate than themselves. What will you be doing with your leftover candy?
