Halloween Foods To Eat & Avoid

 

dp

I’ve become accustomed to all sorts of creatures coming after me whether it’s Mummies, Werewolves or even Zombies. They don’t scare me half as much as the candy being distributed out to children when they go trick or treating.

I mean they are loaded with artificial flavours, colouring, and chemical additives and not to mention have high levels of fructose corn syrup. Halloween candy  really does make my skin boil… & not just because a Mummy put my head in hot boiling water a few Halloweens ago, trust me I’m not bitter at all!

 

The added pressure if you have kids, to let them eat candy is very high indeed of course at this time of year, and you wouldn’t want to disappoint their little faces by giving them nothing at all.

Though I do not agree that the solution is to give them a trick, I believe that if I were to have children I would want them to have a real treat… which would include real food.

But how do we distinguish between the two? Below I’ll share with you some ideas I’ve found myself, and other much more dedicated Halloween creators that are really good for you… I will also share with you some trick foods to avoid at all cost!

 

Oh in case you didn’t believe me about the creatures… here’s when a zombie attacked me in broad daylight!

You’d think I would have some help, even Dare Devil is in this picture, but he didn’t and the rest of the people felt it was best just to take shots of me.

 

Zombie attack KarimDavid.com

 

 

 

 

raisens Karimdavid.com

Raisins: This is most definitely a treat, and I think not just for Halloween but all year round we should make a conscious effort to eat more raisins. The health benefits include relief from Constipation, Cancer, Diabetes, bone health and they are packed with lots of iron and potassium.

 

 

 

Mummy apples karimdavid.com

Mummy Apples: This is also a treat. Decorating your apple with some bandages for this holiday I think is a really cool idea, and may persuade your child to actually get one of his/her five a day which is of course is important (Click Here)The health benefits of Apples are: Helps against deadly diseases such as diabetes and cancers, reduces cholesterol and controls your weight, to name a few.

 

 

 

baked apples karimdavid.com

Baked Apples: No surprise here! I’m going to say this is  a trick. For all the benefits that are mentioned above about apples.. if you dump a load of ice cream and sauce on top, the benefits will go to waste.

 

 

 

Cheese Ghost Treat

Cheese Stick Ghost Face: This is a treat and I found this on Danielly Arian site (Click Here). Again a really cool way to get kids into the spirit of Halloween, and all you need is a sharpie.

 

 

 

Human remains trick Karimdavid.com

Human Remains: This was an awesome design but I’m not too sure who made this, such a shame that they went through all that effort and the meats they have used inside are all unhealthy… so with regret via the design I’m going to have to give this a trick… to think this human corpse had potential.

 

 

ginger-bread-men-trick Karimdavid.com

Gingerbread Men: This is a trick… If you’ve ever read any of my valuable content before you’ll know I really loathe poison, as it has no nutritional benefits and this is one of them.

 

 

bloody-cake- Karimdavid.com

Bloody Cake: Trickkkkkkkkk I’m sorry if that one sounded patronizing, but I’m sure there is somebody out there who believes that cake is healthy for them… If I was a betting man I would win big for sure, so no it’s not good for you, it’s’ trash, don’t eat it this Halloween.

 

 

stuffed-pepepers- karimdavid.com

Stuffed Peppers: This treat  is from Marie Poulin… she literally invites you to come to her kitchen (Click Here) I really like this one as again it doesn’t take much apart from some care… this has brown rice in it also so I may even do this myself! Marie’s ingredients list is on her site right here (Click Here)

 

 

minons-bannas- KarimDavid.com

Banana Minions: Who doesn’t love Minions? Getting your children to love Bananas shouldn’t be much trouble. They taste really nice and have tons of health benefits such as Potassium, Vitamin C/ B6, Fibre, Protein, moderates blood sugar levels, helps with digestive health, weight loss and make you more full.  This one made me laugh a lot, it could be minions or whatever your child is into just make sure the Banana is of course ripe and not rotten.

 

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing with you Halloween foods to eat & avoid

Please do let me know though…

What do you make of all this?

What do you have planned this Halloween ?

    A nice idea for kids of the right age is a Halloween party where maybe some of the food is served in carved pumpkins, they can play games. Then give them some of these.

    Gotta admit you don’t often see “healthy” and “Halloween” in the same sentence! I’ve always felt badly for teachers on the day after – kids went to bed too late and ate far too much sugar.

    We decorate our yard full of ghouls, ghosts, witches, and tombstones–we always have the scariest house on the block. Many of the decorations are animatronics that move and talk, and we use a fog machine to make it even eerier.
