5 Healthy Halloween Alternatives

It’s impossible to think about Halloween without thinking about indulging in candy and goodies. But how can you participate in this fun holiday while keeping your health goals? The good news is that you can enjoy this holiday while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Here are some amazing Halloween alternatives for you to try out.

1. Dark Chocolate

If you can’t shake your chocolate obsession, then dark chocolate is an excellent alternative.

This delicious and healthy treat is rich in antioxidants which repair cells damaged by free radicals (free radicals not countered by antioxidants will cause a wide variety of diseases).

P.S. Go for a quality dark chocolate brand which contains 70-85% cocoa for the greatest health benefits.

2. Organic Candy

The ‘’organic’’ title is not limited to fruits, vegetables and meats. Organic candies are all the rage.

Unlike ordinary candy, organic candy contains no chemical stabilizers, GMO's, artificial color, artificial flavor, or artificial sweeteners, which is great news for your health.

Whatever your preferences, there are organic hard candies, chocolate bars, gummies, nut candies, toffees, caramels, jelly candies, truffles, marshmallows, lollipops, and nougats to electrify your taste buds.

3. Fruits

Substitute processed sugars for the natural sugars found in fruits. Some good options include apple slices, Clementine oranges, bananas, grapes, and plums.

Don’t be afraid to play around with your fruits; arrange them into spooky shapes and complement with peanut butter or caramel sauce. Your sweet toothed friends will be forever thankful.

4. Popcorn

Don’t restrict popcorn to a movie setting. This salty and noisy treat is high in fiber and low in calories, making it perfect for the festivities.

If you’d like to kick it up a notch, make some fun popcorn balls at home and add ingredients like caramel (keep in mind that more ingredients equal more calories).

5. Miniature Toys

Not all Halloween treats have to be food based. How about some fun and affordable toys instead?

The options are endless; Play-Doh, bouncy balls, Rubik's cubes, Uno cards, stickers, glow sticks, removable tattoos, and novelty Halloween toys. Whether your entertaining children or adults, fun toys are sure to be a hit.

Halloween doesn't have to be an out of control sugary mess. You can have a great amount of fun while staying healthy.
