Cooking with Kaye: WLS Friendly Treats

Halloween Treats You Can Eat! Greetings!

Greetings Neighbors and Happy Halloween to You! Have you picked up on the news reports the last few weeks? Americans are expected to spend $2 Billion on candy this year for Halloween treats. According to big box stores customers have been stocking up for nearly 5 weeks now and will return again to replenish their candy supplies before the little costumed door knockers come calling on Saturday night. In spite of tough economic times consumers are spending nearly 7% more on candy this year than last. Some speculate that in tough times of economically driven sacrifice a little indulgence in sweet treats is much deserved.

It is no wonder we are confounded by so much temptation. Nobody wants to feel left-out of the Halloween hoopla but we know the consequences of a candy fest can be catastrophic for us. Today in this special edition of the You Have Arrived email newsletter I present several treats you can feel good about enjoying! We had gastric surgery to become healthy so that we could embrace life to the fullest -- not sit on the sidelines. Making small changes in how we celebrate goes a long way making those dreams of living a reality. I wish you the best in the coming days -- may all your haunting be happy!!

Happy Halloween!
Kaye Bailey
