Hate wasting a beautiful day inside the gym picking things up and putting them down? Not psyched about pumping iron, period? Take strength training to go with these daily activities that double as muscle-building exercises.
13 Healthy Halloween Recipes from Around the Web
There are thousands of new recipes posted online every day. We love trolling sites like Pinterest, Gojee, and Tastespotting as much as the next person, but we realize that can be a huge time drain. This week on The Greatist Table, we decided to round up some healthy (and clever) Halloween goodies. Check out these homemade treats that will please sweet tooths and dentists alike!
FrankenKiwis via Another Lunch
Frankenstein's monster goes tropical! This little guy comes aliiiiiive with a partially-peeled kiwi, sprinkles, and decorative icing.
Spooky Strawberries via Little Ant Design
These chocolate ghosts come together before you can say "Boo!" Just dunk ripe strawberries in melted dark, milk, or white chocolate and let them cool on a baking sheet in the fridge.
Gluten-Free Spiderweb Cupcakes via Texanerin Baking
These healthier treats are made with almond flour, coconut oil, and unsweetened applesauce. Make the creepy-crawly design by dragging a toothpick through the center of concentric circles of icing.
Mummy Hot Dogs via Greatist
This adorable snack is a Greatist Halloween classic! For a healthier take, swap in a soy dog or low-sodium chicken sausage. Our mummy is pretty well-wrapped, but try leaving some gaps for a spookier look.
Snack-o'-Lantern Fruit Cups via Pennies on a Platter
Looking for a festive way to serve dessert? Look no further — these carved-out oranges make a perfect container for fruit salad.
Frozen "Boo"-nana Pops via Skinny Taste
These scarily yummy frozen banana pops are dipped in white chocolate, but for a healthier version try dunking in low-fat vanilla yogurt instead.
Chocolate-Date Pumpkin Tartlets via Fresh Family Cooking
Blend together dark chocolate, Medjool dates, almond butter, and Cheerios to make these delicious grab 'n' go bites.
Banana Mummies via Lexie's Kitchen
These frozen desserts are made without gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, or nuts, so they'll appeal to any guest at your Halloween party. What's in them, then? Nothing but bananas, cocoa butter, and easy-to-make coconut sugar.
Carrot Rice Jack-o'-Lanterns via Apron Strings
Take a step away from the mountains of candy and try this savory Halloween snack instead. The healthy secret behind these cute pumpkins? Carrot juice.
Candy Corn Fruit Cups via Navy Wife Cook
Layered pineapple chunks, orange slices, and whipped cream come together for a less cavity-inducing version of candy corn. Make this recipe even fresher by substituting the creamy topping with Greek yogurt!
Peanut Butter Pumpkins via Mix It Up
Make a whole pumpkin patch of these no-bake treats and stay energized all night long. These pre-party bites are made with natural peanut butter, flax seeds, and rolled oats (a little chocolate doesn't hurt either).
Apple Bites via Spoonful
Bring these scarily simple apple slices to a Monster Mash and get ready for compliments! To make them, wedge different-sized slivered almonds into apple slices.
La Llorona (Weeping Woman) Martini via Muy Bueno
Combine brandy, Angostura bitters, and lemon and lime juices for this potent, delicious cocktail. A touch of dry ice creates the spooky wisps of smoke. Read the story of La Llorona — Spanish for Weeping Woman — for more Halloween fun (but maybe keep the lights on!).
