Host a Healthy Halloween

Halloween marks the start of the holiday season. It can feel overwhelming to plan a festive, fun but healthy party. Here are some ideas to try, which keep the fun of the season and the spookiness of the holiday, without focusing on a spread of processed foods:

 

Autumn-Style Trail Mix

- Mix Pumpkin seeds, lightly salted edamame, roughly chopped figs and cacao nibs for a healthier and seasonal twist

 

Orange Chocolate Bites

- Dip mandarin or satsuma orange sections in melted chocolate or dark chocolate for a lighter sweet treat

 

Festive Fall Sweet Potato Dip, with Veggies

- We love this recipe from Once Upon A Cutting Board's site, and would recommend serving it with a non-starchy veggie platter (veggies are great low-cal crunchy snacks for when the party is long and you're snacking more often):

Savory Snack Bags

- Stuff mini orange bags with a serving (3 1/2 cups) of Skinny Pop brand light popcorn for a high-volume treat. Great for movie or game nights where it can be easy to over-do portions! http://skinnypop.com/our-popcorn/naturally-sweet/

 

And if you're feeling extra crafty, check out these super-cute but healthy party menu items from Spoonful that are a festive feast for your eyes and taste buds! http://spoonful.com/halloween/best-halloween-recipes-gallery
