When I attend a Halloween party, I know that people are always curious what the… “Dietitian” is going to bring! As you can see from all the recipes I’ve been sharing this week, healthy does not have to be boring or bland. In fact, healthy can taste even better than processed or more traditional foods that are often considered to be the “tastier” version.

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!
