The more I awaken, the less I desire to fit in. —Unknown
The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison. -Ann Wigmore
I have been hesitating to write this post for some time now. I certainly didn’t want to publish it before Halloween lest I rain on somebody’s parade. Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween. Especially now that I have children, it’s even more special. My only issue lies with the candy part of it. I know, it’s candy, it’s not meant to be healthy. But have you looked at exactly what the candy of today is made with? It’s beyond my comprehension that this is what we give our children … as a treat … and in copious amounts to boot. What message are we sending out?
This year, as in the past, I bartered most of what was collected for homemade candy and cookies.
