Healthier Halloween


October 29, 2012 by Cassy

Because everyone needs to have alternatives to high calorie, high sugar candies.

  • Candy dipped dark chocolate – The darker the better. Chocolate contains several types of flavonoids, many which offer antioxidant protection against free radicals. Research has shown that chocolate consumption can help improve heart health, especially blood pressure management, which is a boost for adults finding some extra, uneaten chocolate around Halloween.
  • Healthy snack foods like fruit snacks, pretzels, and baked fries that contain 50% less fat than regular potato chips.  Snikiddy snacks are free from gluten, preservatives and corn syrup. This all-natural snack is also rich in vitamin A.
  • Cinnamon has repeatedly shown the ability to lower glucose levels, which can spike after high-carbohydrate meals. Add the pure spice to high-fiber oatmeal for a good morning-after breakfast or make use of the growing number of cinnamon extract supplements on the market.
