Healthy Tricks for Halloween Treating

C’est l’Halloween, hey!

If you want a real spook this Halloween, take a glimpse at the labels on bulk candy.

While I commend Whole ‘Wallet’ for their organic mini goodies made with raw cane sugar and ethically-sourced chocolate, these treats can still be a horror on blood sugar levels. A nutritious Halloween might sound like an oxymoron, but why not treat yourself to a less frightful serving of sweets?

Getting fun and creative on Halloween is pretty much an art form.

Have you heard of the TEAL pumpkin project? It was launched last year by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) to create a safer, happier Halloween for all. By painting your pumpkin teal, you can indicate that your home offers allergy-friendly and non-food treats. And c’mon, who doesn’t LOVE a teal pumpkin?

In the spirit of Halloween creativity, here are a few healthy treats to try, if you dare…

Mandarin Orange Pumpkins with Celery Tops + Banana Cacao Ghosts via Weelicious (swap out chocolate for cacao nib eyes and raisin mouths)

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds via A Teaspoon of Turmeric

Witches’ Brooms via Foodlets (try a gluten-free pretzel stick, Daiya dairy-free cheese and a chive ribbon)

Apple Bites with Almond Sliver Teeth via Oh She Glows
Halloween Apple Bites! Fill sliced apples with red jam, and others with peanut butter or almond butter... and use almond pieces for CrEePy teeth! Yikes!! #MyVeganJournal: Halloween Parties, Idea, Recipe, 3 Ingredients Halloween, Food, Apples Bites, Holidays, Halloween Apples, Healthy Halloween Treats
