Happy, Healthy Halloween??
My kids and I sure have been enjoying the Halloween treats and sweets this year (thank you for the recipes, Holly!) ....possibly too much :). What is Halloween without the candy? In an attempt to detox and still be festive minus the sugar charge, we made some healthy snacks today that were quite a spooky sight. Surprisingly, my kids ate every last piece. Even the eyelashes. Maybe we will make these year round.
To make your own you will need:
Apple cut into wedges for lips
Peanut Butter for Gums (to hold the teeth in)
Slivered Almonds for some scary teeth
Halved grapes for the snout
Kiwi slices for eyes
Carrot shavings for eye lashes
Carved Carrot sticks for Eyebrows
here, but you don't really need one. Just use slices of string cheese instead of regular shredded cheese and cut up some olives to look like spiders.
Any of you have any low-sugar Halloween traditions you would like to share? I would love to hear them!
