NEW YORK, NY, October 31, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- October 31st used to be all-about kids going Trick-or-Treating door to door, silly pranks and visiting haunted houses. As adults, staying home during this spooky night is more appealing. Just because you're staying in, the night does not have to be a downer. You can have a small get-together with friends or have a big blowout.
Halloween is also holiday that is loaded with sweet treats such as cookies, candy, cake and punch. As adults, we want to minimize the sugar overload. Refined sugar causes blood sugar level to spike and crash, which can lead to irritability, low energy and moodiness. This time around, try to eat low-sugary snacks that are rich in nutrients and vitamins.
Below are our top ideas for healthy Halloween snacks. If none of these, edible bites appeal to you, you may want to give a supplements a try. You can read more about health supplement brands on Review Critic

Apple Monster Bites
These Apple Monster Bites are made from vitamin rich ingredients such as green apples, sunflower seed butter or peanut butter and strawberries.
Cut the apples in wedges and stick a thinly-sliced strawberry inside the middle to simulate a tongue. Add raising for beedy-little eyes.
Green apples are packed with minerals, vitamins, proteins and fiber. They help fight against digestive problems, blood glucose regulation and the presence of good cholesterol. This silly treat has vitamin A, B-6, C, E, K and Zinc, among many other nutrients.
Honeydew and Cantaloupe Bats
For this fresh and mouth-watering snack, all you need is a honeydew and a cantaloupe. Simply slice the fruit and shape into bats. Serve as is or, insert a wooden popsicle stick at the center.
Honeydew melon and Cantaloupes are low in calories but rich in vitamin A, vitamin B-6, vitamin C, iron and magnesium.
Banana Yummy-Mummies are made from frozen bananas, cocoa butter and coconut sugar, which are all whole-food ingredients that taste sweet without all the guilt. If you want a tamer version, you can substitute cocoa butter with peanut butter or almond butter. Cut the bananas into oblong shapes and coat with the cocoa, peanut or almond butters. You can make all sorts of squiggly lines. These tasty treats are rich in potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B-6, vitamin C, iron, calcium and magnesium.
No Halloween will be complete with a pumpkin Jack O' Lantern but you can also enjoy a mash made out of the pulp, with some squeezed orange juice to make it a bit sweeter. Pumpkins are rich in vitamins and nutrients. The flesh of the pumpkin is an excellent source of beta carotene
, which is a powerful antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A in the body. The added orange juice has vitamin C which helps your body heal from wounds.
Jack O' Lantern Orange Peppers
These stuffed orange bell peppers may seem ordinary until you carved them into Jack O' Lanterns. You can stuff them with just about anything. We particularly like shredded cabbage, walnuts, sesame seeds, drizzled with a dressing made from soy sauce, honey, balsamic vinegar and lemon. You can also stuff it with cooked rice and chicken. They make the perfect healthy light Halloween dinner, loaded with vitamin A, B-6 and C. If you add the lemon zing (or any other citrus juice
), you will also be adding a rich antioxidant that cleans out your digestive system by stimulating bowel movements and also clears the urinary tract.
Mix broccoli, peas, chives, sour cream, salt and pepper, nutmeg and parsley for a gooey green slime dip. Garnish with additional parsley. This dip has vitamin B, vitamin C. Vitamin B is important in making red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body. Every part of your body needs oxygen to function properly. Parsley contains vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll and is known to aid in liver detoxification. Parsley also supports the kidneys and helps rid the body of excess water weight.
However you slice, stuff or cut your veggies and fruits, you will be a winner with these yummy and healthy Halloween snacks, treats and dishes which are loaded with vitamins and other nutrients. Your small get-together or dinner party will be a hit of this spooky Halloween night without the added sugar high or subsequent crash. So, enjoy, eat and have fun!
