Creepy Halloween Mummy Wieners

[ Mummy hot dogs: 5 grams of fat...as opposed to a beef hot dog with 16 grams of fat ]

Today will be my last Halloween post; it’s time to hone in on Thanksgiving [ so excited ]! I made these turkey weenies on a sunny day while everyone was relaxing & craving Sunday comfort food. Typically, beef hot dogs are filled with awful ingredients that do not digest well [ they're filled with nitrates and nitrites- yuck ]. These Trader Joe’s all natural uncured turkey dogs wrapped in reduced fat Pillsbury dough are a healthier choice with a fun twist.

The Flat Belly Smoothie

[ Blueberries have fiber, Vitamin C & E ]

I wore my Halloween costume [ which was belly-bearing- I was an Indian chief  ] out Friday night to attend a concert. I knew I would be drinking & wanted to reduce the chances of bloat. This smoothie was created primarily for that reason. Spinach aids in reducing puffiness, orange juice has potassium which flushes out the system & blueberries are full of antioxidants. The flat belly smoothie hardly took any time at all & luckily the blueberries & Greek 0% yogurt camouflage the spinach taste [ I promise! ].

Skinny Treats

[ Mini treats for the sweet tooth ]

Recently I read a magazine article that claimed to “reduce your chances of getting spooked by the scale.” I decided to recreate it but display my Halloween picks that are low sugar & under 150 calories. These treats still allow participation in the age-old tradition of consuming mass amounts of delicious candy. My favorite? The watermelon Dum Dum Pops [ I also love the dark chocolate peanut M&M's ].

Calorie List from Shape Magazine:

6 Dum Dum Pops: 150 cals

3 mini Nerds: 150 cals

3 mini Twix: 150 cals

10 Dark Chocolate Peanut M&M’s: 130 cals

6 mini Musketeers: 146 cals

6 Smarties rolls: 150 cals

6 mini Snickers: 150 cals

3 mini Laffy Taffy: 146 cals

3 mini packages of SweeTarts: 140 cals
