Healthy Halloween Treats

What Halloween childhood memories do you have?

Did you and your friends devise an intricate plan that entailed scouring the neighbourhood strategically in order to collect as many Halloween candies as humanly possible? Are the houses that gave out full-sized candy bars still sealed in your memory to this day?

Halloween is many people’s favourite holiday for a number of reasons: the way pumpkins take over in every way, shape and flavour, the seasonal spookiness, planning all year for that amazing costume that you’ll probably only wear once, and of course ALL OF THE TREATS (to accompany the tricks that no one ever actually performs anymore!)

Oh yeah… And the dreaded sugar crash.

Sure, a fun, family holiday is a great excuse for junk food, but there are also plenty of spooky and delicious treats that won’t spike little junior’s blood sugar levels. We’ve found some festive Halloween treats that are healthy and festive. Check them out!

The Green Plate Rule blog has everything you need to host a clean Halloween shindig. We’re especially fond of the jack-o-lantern yam fries!
