Top 5 Healthy Halloween Treats
Halloween is just around the corner, and this normally means lots of sugary sweets that are no good for your health or your waistline. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are some delicious Halloween treats both you and your kids will enjoy that are packed with nutrients.
Halloween stuffed peppers
Make some gruesome stuffed peppers by carving out pumpkin faces in the veg, and filling them with a delicious mix of grains, pine nuts and aubergine. This is low in fat, low in salt, but high in protein, making it an ideal dish to enjoy on October 31st.
Green apple monsters
This Healthy Table recommends tucking into green apple monsters this Halloween, which are simply mouths made out of sliced apples and filled with peanut butter, a slice of cheese for a tongue and pumpkin seeds for teeth.
The peanut butter, cheese and pumpkin seeds provide plenty of protein and good fats, while the apple is a healthy source of carbohydrates. Plus, the kids will love them!
Not many people can resist pizza, but you can make a healthy version with homemade pizza dough, mozzarella, passata, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and olives cut up to create the shape of a spider on the top.
Each serving is just 291 calories and provides 12g of protein.
Halloween roasted veg
It can be hard to make vegetables look exciting but this recipe for Halloween roasted veggies manages to do it. Simply chop up carrots, sweet, potatoes, beetroots and sweet potatoes into pumpkin, ghost and witches’ hats and roast them in the oven.
Instead of filling up on sweets and chocolate, snack on crudities and dips with this witch guacamole recipe. Create a face out of homemade guacamole, the hair out of chopped carrots, the hat out of tortilla chips, and the facial features out of other types of veg.
Even if you have an off-day, make sure you get back on plan by ordering meal prep services for the next day.
