Frightening Foods With Ghostly Calories

If you’re anything like me, there’s nothing better than delicious fall flavors. And with everything from sugary desserts to hardy comfort foods at every turn, it can quickly become the season of stuffing our faces. How do we keep this from happening? By making it a goal to keep a healthy lifestyle in mind before eating/drinking our calories, you’re able to partake here and there without setting back your weight-loss journey. Take a look at this list of fall favorites and high-calorie culprits.    

Pumpkin Spice Latte

  Grande – approximately 380 calories   

Instead, try Chai Tea with low-fat almond milk. Blend together for a frothy mix.

 

Caramel Apples

  Approximately 300 calories  

Instead, try these healthy Baked Apples (or pears, if you prefer).

 

Popcorn Balls 

  Approximately 150,    BUT 27g of carbs  

Instead, check out these popular bagged popcorn brands.

 

Sweet Potatoe Casserole

  Approximately 350-450   

Instead, try these simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes and save the sweet treats for dessert.

 

Chicken Pot Pie

  Approximately 600   

Instead, try this low-carb, gluten-free alternative with the same comforting flavors.

 

Even if you decide it’s a day to indulge, being aware of the calories you’re consuming is the first step towards maintaining a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle (with room for an occasional cheat day, of course).
