Top 4 Healthy Halloween Treats For You & Your Kids

Sep 18, 2021

HALLOWEEN GOODIES SO YUMMY, IT’S SCARY!

Absolutely delicious treats for you to enjoy during Halloween with peace of mind!

Spooky Faces: Assorted Yogurt Pretzels

Seriously, one of my favorite Halloween treats. Seeing those colorful pretzels in the store are SO TEMPTING – but we all know how stuffed full of sugar and additives they are. They are much more healthy to make at home with yogurt, and you’re in total control of how much powdered sugar you use.

You’ll need: Miniature pretzels, 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 cup powdered sugar, 200g melted dark chocolate, organic orange food coloring (derived from carrots), a range of googley eyes, sprinkles and dark choc chips.

Method: Combine yogurt and sugar, then split evenly into three bowls. Bowl 1 – leave as plain white yogurt. Bowl 2 – add orange coloring. Bowl 3 – add melted dark chocolate. Dip your pretzels into the yogurt coating and place on a greaseproof tray, add eyes, sprinkles or choc chips before freezing for 2 hours.

Low Carb Pumpkin Bars

Halloween treats for mama! If you’re eating keto, gluten-free or just low carb – these gorgeous cake bars will satisfy your seasonal cravings.

You’ll need: 1 cup pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup cream cheese, 2 eggs, 1 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice and a pinch of salt.

Method: Combine oil, cheese, pumpkin and eggs and stir until smooth. Add in flour, salt and maple syrup. Transfer to a greased baking tray and bake for 25 minutes at 350C or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Devilish Red Velvet Apples

Toffee apples were a Halloween carnival favourite in my youth, and I really wanted to recreate that nostalgia without causing permanent damage to my teeth! A lot of healthy alternatives to toffee apples will use dark chocolate instead of the toffee. The dark chocolate and apple combination makes for a great dose of healthy antioxidants – however, I don’t know many kids that will happily eat bitter dark chocolate without spitting it out. My trick? Make it red velvet!

You’ll need: 4 apples, 4 sticks, 300g dark chocolate, 5 drops organic red food coloring (comes from beetroot extract), 4 ounces cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract.

The method is quick & easy: Gradually melt your chocolate over a low heat, and then add your red coloring. Poke the sticks into the apples before dipping each apple into the chocolate. Place each chocolately apple on a tray and allow to cool in freezer for 30 mins, then the fridge. In the meantime, whip up the cheese, sugar and vanilla into a simple cream cheese icing. Take the apples out the fridge and pipe the cream cheese icing into a drizzle on top – refrigerate until time to eat!

Pumpkin Oat Muffins

The great thing about these? You can eat them for breakfast!

You’ll need: 1 egg, 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 3/4 cup canned pumpkin, 1 cup oats, 1/4 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup vegetable oil.

Method: Mix flour, sugar, spices and baking soda in a bowl. Combine egg, pumpkin, milk and oil in a separate bowl and mix. Combine the two bowls and stir in the oats. Pour mixture into a greased muffin tin and bake for 20 mins at 375F.

STRETCH IT OUT!!!!

There are many benefits to regular stretching. Not only can stretching help increase your flexibility, which is an important factor of fitness, but it can also improve your posture, reduce stress and body aches, and more.

1. Increases your flexibility
Regular stretching can help increase your flexibility, which is crucial for your overall health. Not only can improved flexibility helps you to perform everyday activities with relative ease, but it can also help delay the reduced mobility that can come with aging.

2. Increases your range of motion
Being able to move a joint through its full range of motion gives you more freedom of movement. Stretching on a regular basis can help increase your range of motion.

3. Improves your performance in physical activities
Performing dynamic stretches prior to physical activities has been shown to help prepare your muscles. It may also help improve your performance in an athletic event or exercise.

4. Increases blood flow to your muscles
Performing stretches on a regular basis may improve your circulation. 

5. Improves your posture
Muscle imbalances are common and can lead to poor posture. One study found that a combination of strengthening and stretching specific muscle groups can reduce musculoskeletal pain and encourage proper alignment. That, in turn, may help improve your posture.

6. Helps to heal and prevent back pain
Tight muscles can lead to a decrease in your range of motion. When this happens, you increase the likelihood of straining the muscles in your back. Stretching can help heal an existing back injury by stretching the muscles.

A regular stretching routine can also help prevent future back pain by strengthening your back muscles and reducing your risk for muscle strain.

7. Is great for stress relief
When you’re experiencing stress, there’s a good chance your muscles are tense. That’s because your muscles tend to tighten up in response to physical and emotional stress. Focus on areas of your body where you tend to hold your stress, such as your neck, shoulders, and upper back.
