Halloween Recipes & Treats
Happy Monday! Today kicks off our Halloween Party Recipe Series! All week long I will be sharing healthy treat and recipe ideas perfect for Halloween parties or just to celebrate the season!
In today’s video, I’m sharing my picks for Halloween candy for 2014. We all know that candy is not a health food, however there are “healthier” choices available to us. I spent hours researching what healthier Halloween candy options are available. My picks for 2014 are Organic, vegan and gluten-free. These treats also do not contain any artificial ingredients, food dyes, or artificial sweeteners and… they taste amazing! The candy featured in today’s video are the exact treats I will be passing out to trick-or-treaters this year.
Then, Tuesday-Friday I have delicious, colorful, fun and simple party recipes to share with you!

Organic, Gluten-Free, Vegan & Natural Halloween Candy
Tomorrow I will be a guest on ABC Television Network’s KATU during the 7am hour, sharing healthier halloween candy options! It may sound odd that “healthy” and “candy” are in the same sentence. While candy, as we all know, is not a health food, healthier candy options do exist. Today more kids and adults have food allergies, food sensitivities and dietary restrictions. With more people learning about “what’s in our food” we are also more passionate about real food and avoiding artificial ingredients. This means that the holidays, such as Halloween, can be a challenge. However, it doesn’t have to be! As the Healthy Grocery Girl® and a Registered Dietitian, I have done the research for you and I am sharing Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free and no artificial ingredient treats for a healthier Halloween. Halloween is already spooky enough, we do…Continue Reading >
