Halloween pot lucks, parties, and trick-or-treating can be sneaky business—even if the scariest part is you trying to avoid the kids’ treat bags full of candy, chocolate, and chips.
However, you can still get your Halloween treats on without terrorizing your healthy diet if you infuse the holiday with these scary (good) tips…
1. Recreate Classic Halloween Candy
It’s fairly easy to give classic Halloween candy the fruity treatment. For example, to make a healthier, more natural form of candy corn layer a wedge of pineapple, a wedge of cantaloupe, and a piece of banana on wooden skewers. You can also make healthy apple monsters by using a melon baller to carve out eyes, mount them on toothpicks, and use a large apple slice as a mouth with slivered almonds to create the toothy grin.
