Halloween can sometimes be another opportunity to fall off the healthy band wagon. With sweets, treats, alcohol and other temptations lining the supermarket shelves, it can be easy to indulge in sugary snacks. To try and keep your Halloween as healthy as possible, we have put together some food tips and treats which will allow you to satisfy your sweet fang without being too unhealthy.
If you absolutely must indulge in chocolate this spooky season, then take the healthier option of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is seen to be somewhat of an antioxidant, so instead of opting for milk or white chocolate, choose the chocolate which will be more beneficial towards your health.
If you had chocolates in mind for party snacks or trick or treater’s, why not switch it up with the healthier option of fruit covered chocolate? Try melting dark chocolate and dipping either strawberries, raspberries, or oranges. Once you have done, place them in a small box or wrapper and hand them over as you would a normal bar of chocolate. It works as a sweet treat but with a fraction of the calories!
Halloween is a great time of year for parties. A bottle of wine, or a pint of beer are popular favourites during Halloween. But if you are looking to cut the calories, why not opt for a wine spritzer instead of a full glass of wine? It means you can still enjoy a little tipple on the 31st, whilst only consuming half of the calories a typical glass of wine holds!
That's right, you can still cook up some homemade cookies, but try using an alternative recipe which is lower in sugar and higher in fibre. There are many recipes on the web for sugar-free oat cookies - so why not have a quick search for the perfect recipe and bake a guilt-free treat for you and your family to enjoy.
