Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Fair food memories haunt you! Your local fair is a must for your family, but is it possible to resist the famous carnival foods and should you? Visions of funnel cake, fried onions, and various other diet bombs haunt you!

Is the best lifestyle solution simply to avoid the fair or carnival in your state, or are there healthy diet habits that can help you navigate them, without spending a week's worth of calories? Remember that besides being high calorie, they are packed with fat, sugar and salt, with very little nutritional value. No such thing as portion control either!

Fair Food Tips from Kerry of Healthy Diet Habits

There are not too many healthy choices of carnival food, but life is not about deprivation. It is about eating healthy most of the time and sane the rest of the time. Enjoy a treat with your eyes wide open and practice sane eating in an insane place!

Find out some Healthy Diet Tips for eating Fair Food from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
