Thanksgiving is a day for quality time with friends and family. Sure, the food is delicious, but the special thing about this holiday is the emphasis on thankfulness. Spice up the usual “What are you thankful for?” dinner question and ask your family “WHO are you thankful for?” Make sure the people you count on know how much you care. We’ll start the conversation:
Who is the Fit Snack Team thankful for?
Rose Muniz (Founder)
I’m thankful for so many people, but to keep this short and sweet, I’ll share 3 who are top of mind.
- The love of my life Justin. He is my best friend and favorite man to hang with. He’s taught me to balance my life with quality time, relaxation, fun adventures, and amazing conversations. He also eats healthy like me, so keeping a nutritious diet is a piece of cake in our house.
- I’m also thankful for my sister and BFF Anita. We enjoy many of the same things and always have the best time hangin together. She is one of my partners in Fit Snack. Everyday that I get to work with her on it, I think of the fact that we have built a company that we can both stand behind, be proud of and enjoy.
- I’m thankful for my mom. She is one of my biggest cheerleaders and supporters. She is always there when I want someone to talk to and she is working so hard to make life better and better.

I’m thankful for my boyfriend, John. He challenges me to get out of my comfort zone and explore! I’d never camped a night in my life before we met. Now, we go on camping and backpacking trips whenever we can!

Fun costumes, spooky decorations, mugs of apple cider…what’s not to love about Halloween? If you have a sweet tooth, trying to avoid binge-eating candy can be a challenge. Luckily, there’s many healthier alternatives that will put you in a festive mood without causing cavities. Here’s five of our favorite healthy Halloween recipes, that are equally yummy year round!
1.) “Candy Corn” Chicken Quesadillas
2.) Devilish Avocado Sriacha Eggs
Replace mayonnaise with avocado for a scary good twist on the classic deviled egg! These spicy eggs are high in protein and healthy fats, making them the perfect appetizers.
3.) 3 Ingredient Banana Mummies
Gluten, dairy, egg, soy, and nut free? Check check and check! These frozen treats made with banana, coca butter and coconut sugar are sure please even the pickiest of eaters.
4.) Cheese Witches Brooms
These party snacks are the perfect size to satisfy salty cravings!
5.) Veggie Skeleton
The only time veggies should be spooky! Mix up the dip for whatever sounds good to you. We’d serve the veggies with home made hummus. Just blend olive oil, garbanzo beans, tahini sauce, garlic, lemon juice in a food processor and enjoy!
-Happy Halloween from the Fit Snack Team!
