Healthy Halloween Food

Halloween and healthy are not usually two words that go together in the same sentence. But that’s no excuse to try and eat healthy! Start with this healthy Halloween food.

If the thought of trying to avoid sugary candy this time of year scares you, try some of this creative healthy Halloween food!  And instead of turning to sugar, enjoy the holiday in other ways – get moving at a local corn maze, pumpkin patch, haunted house or as part of a themed fun run. Personally my favorite part about Halloween is binge-watching all of the classic Halloween movies (think: Beetlejuice, Hocus Pocus, Gremlins, ET, and everything Tim Burton).

So while you’re munching on these goodies, take your hand at carving a pumpkin. Because let’s be honest, there is nothing we love more about this time of year than pumpkin and PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING. The craze gets more and more ridiculous every year and I. Love. Every. Minute. Of. It.

Below is some of my favorite healthy Halloween food to serve at your next Monster Mash. These foods will keep you energized throughout the holiday, rather than causing the dreaded sugar crash – which is the last thing you need in your busy life.

 

Healthy Halloween Food

  • Halloween Yogurt Bark – Freezing yogurt (even the non-dairy kind!) creates a breakable bark similar to chocolate without all the sugar. Add fruit and homemade monster googly eyes for a festive look!
  • Owl Rice Cake Snacks – I love everything about these – rice cakes, peanut butter, fresh fruit and whole grain cereal – all wrapped up in a cute little owl snack!
  • Watermelon Brain – Feeling adventurous? Instead of carving pumpkins this season, carve a juicy edible watermelon!
  • Yummy Mummy Beef Pizzas – Try these protein-packed English muffin pizzas for a quick snack or festive dinner on Halloween night!
  • Thai-Spiced Deviled Egg – The spicy orange filling in these deviled eggs are naturally colored with curry paste and Sriracha. Add a little chive or green onion sprig to finish off the pumpkin look!
  • Cheese Witch’s Broom – Make these fun witch’s brooms easily with pretzel sticks, cheese and chives for a healthy and festive Halloween snack.
  • Breadstick Rattlers – How cute are these you guys? Use homemade or pre-made pizza dough to create these spooky snakes which are decorated with poppy seeds, olives for eyes and a piece of dried chili for a tongue.
  • Crunchy Celery Mummies – Wrap up Halloween spirit with these crisp celery snacks packed with cream cheese (try hummus for a non-dairy alternative) and draped with deli ham mummy rags.
