I guess I’ll have to take the risk of getting my house
covered in toilet paper this year, but there will be no
candy given out at Halloween at our house. Let’s
face it, do our kids REALLY need an entire pillow
case full of candy that will not only rot their teeth
out but give them a sugar high? Do we really want
to have it in our house and be tempted with our
favorite chocolate bar staring us right in the face?
Join with IWM and refuse to give candy to kids. There are plenty of great options and
you can find more at your local party store. Check out these ideas to get you started:
• glow sticks and glow necklaces
• raisins
• pretzels
• pencils and erasers
You can find Ideal Weight Management
• treasure box items (rings, small games, etc.)
on Facebook and read through posts
And don’t forget the Candy Buy Back at Kids Only
from the IWM community, browse photos
Dental! Ask us for more info, maybe you can make
and get the latest updates!
a little money and give your candy to a good cause.

Roasted Edamame Salad
Dinner Protein and veggies (see note at bottom)
Ingredients:
• 12 oz. fresh or frozen shelled edamame
• 1 cup chopped green, yellow and red peppers
• 1/4 cup finely diced scallion
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 1 Tbsp olive oil
• 3/4 tsp real sea salt
• 1/4 tsp black pepper
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
• 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
• 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the edamame, peppers,
scallion, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper into a 13 by 9 metal
pan and stir to combine. Place on the middle of the oven
and roast for 10 to 15 minutes, just until the edamame
begins to brown. Remove from the oven and place in the
refrigerator until completely cool, approx 30 minutes. Add
the tomato, basil and vinegar to the edamame mixture and
toss to combine. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
NOTE: About 1 cup of edamame is equivalent to 1 whole foods serving of
protein. You can adjust the edamame in this salad to make it more or less,
depending on if you want this to be a simple side dish or your entire meal.
Spinach Soup
1 IP servings
• 1 Ideal Protein Leek Soup
• 2 cups fresh spinach
• sea salt and pepper to
taste
Cook the fresh spinach with
1 tsp olive oil, a pinch of
nutmeg and a squeeze of
lemon. Add Leek Soup to a
blender with 8 - 16ox hot
water (1-2 cups depending on taste and if you want
think or thick soup). Be careful that the water is NOT
BOILING or you may create too much pressure with a
closed blender lid which can pop off and burn you.
Add the cooked spinach to the soup and blend. You
can pour into bowl and microwave for 1 minute to get
piping hot if desired. Spice with sea salt and pepper.
You can add a boiled egg white if desired.
*VARIATIONS: You can do this with pureed asparagus
too and if you add pureed cauliflower it will thicken
the soup and add more flavor (and veggies).

Has your doctor reduced
your prescriptions?
If so, please bring us your empty prescription bottle (with
all personal information removed or well-covered) so that
we can add it to our clinic collection. We will give you a
free IP meal for each bottle you donate. *DO NOT try and
adjust medications without the advice of your doctor.
What’s next?
This is what we ask so many clients when
they have reached their weight loss goal.
Exercise and being active is an integral
component of our maintenance program and
has many health benefits. When your health
coach tells you that you’re ready, it’s
important to incorporate exercise. While
some will start with goals such as walking a
5K, we know that we have others that will
make big plans to run a marathon. At IWM,
we are trying to support clients in all areas of
wellness and so we have created our Active
Team.
IWM
Active
Team
Our goal is to support YOU, participate in
some local events together and motivate
each other to keep exercise in our daily routines. So here’s your first challenge:
On Friday, December 2nd at 6:00pm, the Haile Village will be hosting the Reindeer 5k Run/
Walk. Entry cost is $25 and all proceeds will be donated to the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation
and Alachua County Girls on the Run. You can walk it, ride your bike, bring your dog and
wear your most festive gear. Get registered before Nov. 15th to guarantee that you’ll get the
race shirt size that you request.
Here’s what we are doing for our registered IWM Clients: Show us a copy of your registration and get a
free IWM Active Team (very good quality) shirt! And...we will have a little post-party in our clinic with
plenty of post exercise protein (ahhh.....yes....and those peanut butter bars!).
