The most famous sugar-overload holiday just got a serious dose of wellbeing. Whether you’re or trick-or-treating or just greeting, these exhale-approved treats will give you a healthy boost this Halloween.

 

 

Scary green smoothies:

  • ½ Green Apple
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • ½ avocado
  • Handful Spinach
  • Dash Honey
  • Dash lemon juice
  • Citrus garnish (optional)

Combine all ingredients (except citrus garnish) in a blender. Then create a spooky garnish with an orange, clementine, lemon, or lime – whatever you have on hand: cut the citrus fruit in half and scoop out the insides. Then, using a sharp knife or a clean crafts knife, cut a face in each rind. Push a wooden skewer through the rind from the bottom and out through the top.

Spooky spaghetti:

  • 12 ounces black soba noodles
  • 2 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 3 tbsp Rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • Green onions (sliced)
  • Sesame seeds

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the soba noodles according to package instructions. While the noodles are cooking, combine sesame oil, honey, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a small bowl. When noodles are done cooking, run them under cold water. Toss noodles with sauce, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions.

Well Jack-O-Lanterns:

  • Large Orange bell peppers
  • Your favorite dip
  • Assorted raw vegetables (like carrots, cucumbers, sturdy lettuces, celery) cut into thin spears

Core peppers with a sharp paring knife and pull out stems and ribs. Carefully scoop out remaining ribs and seeds.

Spoon dip into orange pepper, arrange vegetables in the yellow peppers, and arrange together.
