Yes, eating healthy is important—but we all know how hard it is to stay disciplined during times like Halloween, when those bite-sized candies pop up everywhere from your home to your office. While a little indulging now and then is fine, the key is moderation—and finding guilt-free ways to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Lucky for me, my favorite Montclair baker, Miss Nicky has come up with the ultimate health-food disguised as a treat: an uber-rich, yet perfectly light chocolate cookie that’s loaded with fiber and protein (though you’d never know by its decadent taste). And if I’m really in the mood to splurge, her handmade artisanal toffee totally rocks. www.missnickys.com. –BB
