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
Apple Bites with Almond Sliver Teeth via Oh She Glows
Veggie Skeleton via Feeding Four Little Monkeys
Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free Spiderweb Cupcakes via Texan Erin (try using less honey, or sweeten with raw stevia, lucuma powder, Yacon syrup)
Witches Brew Smoothie via One Green Planet
Happy, healthy treating! ❤
