The start of October brings the early signs of autumn. The leaves start to change, pumpkin spice can be found in every food, and you cannot miss the Halloween candy being sold everywhere! For many of us, this is also the start of an unhealthy diet season full of temptation that goes naturally with the upcoming holidays. It is quite the challenge to remain healthy with all of the seasonal expectations ahead! Instead of indulging in your go-to candy of choice, why not brew a nice hot cup of tea? Tea can be just as sweet as candy without the sugar or calories – a great way to curb your cravings! If you find yourself giving in to your sweet tooth – consider the following substitutions to remain on a healthy (and delicious!) holiday season.
