7 Healthy Halloween Foods That Are FUN To Eat

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

Family Fun magazine’s ideas for {healthy} Halloween fare are sure to be a hit with little ghouls and boys.

These dishes also double as edible dECOr, saving resources and money.

Invite kids to get crafty during your Halloween party – and you’ve just added an edible “activity” as well.

Meow! Use veggies and bean dip to make Black Bean Cat Crudités.

Ghastly grins! Apples and almonds are all that’s required for these “Apple Bites.” You could also fill “mouths” with nut butter and make the “teeth” out of all-natural white chocolate chips.

Finger food! “Carrot Fingers” reach out of veggie dip. Ew… Yum.

Eat your eyeballs – er, veggies! With “Edible Eyeballs” you can do both (and of course, munching on carrots is good for your kids’ peepers!)

Marvelous monsters! “Swamp Creatures” are made with scoops of mac & cheese, but you can also make with potato salad, quinoa salad or any other “salad” that holds together well. Swamp sludge can be made with spinach, kale, collards or a combo sauteed greens. A great dish to serve to filler-er-up before trick-or-treating.

Stick our your tongue! Simple but fun, these “Goblin Grins” are sure to cause smiles all around.

Yummy Mummies! These cute little “Pizza Mummies” Are a great main dish. Use English muffins or bagels (also available in gluten free!)

TIP: Always choose local & organic ingredients, whenever possible. However, if you want to know which foods carry the heaviest pesticide loads (many are on this list) and which are safer to buy conventionally grown, click to find “The Dirty Dozen” and “The Clean Fifteen.”

Many Paths Cover Image

On Sunday we featured a Pumpkin Bread recipe from Holistic Mom’s Network‘s new cookbook, Many Paths, One Journey to Health, due out next month.

As promised, today’s recipe is Vegan Fudge Truffles.

So easy to make, so eco-fabulous (a vegan diet is easier on the planet) and so absolutely delish.


6 tsp. vegan margarine 3 1/2 c. plus 3 T. confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 c. vegan cocoa powder

1/4 c. vanilla soy milk 1 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Lightly grease an 8 x 8-inch pan. Place the margarine, vanilla, and soy milk in a

heatproof mixing bowl, or the upper part of a double boiler. Sift the sugar and 1/2 cup

cocoa and add to the mixture. Place the bowl or boiler over simmering water and stir

until smooth. Add nuts if desired. Pour the mixture quickly into the prepared pan. Let

chill for at least 1 hour, or until set. Scoop out fudge with melon ball scoop and roll

into balls. Roll fudge balls in cocoa powder and set on wax paper and chill in air tight container. For best results chill overnight as the fudge will be firmer and more like

regular fudge.
