How about orange bell peppers stuffed to the brim with veggies and baked to perfection? Carve out the bell peppers and you have mini pumpkin Jack-o’-lantern! Go ahead and add quinoa to turn it into a full-fledged meal.

Nothing screams Halloween better than ghosts. Grab some bananas and stick on some funky choco chips and this treat is good to go.

Spook the little monsters with a colorful, healthy, yet creepy Halloween inspired veggie salad. Ghost bread croutons, honey glazed carrot Jack-o’lanterns, fresh crunchy lettuce and juicy cherry tomatoes with a mix of lemon, olive oil, and Italian seasoning for dressing. It will be blood-sucking good!

Don’t worry, this yummy spooky beverage isn’t as creepy as it looks! Carved apples floating around in a healthy, refreshing pomegranate-mint juice.

It ain’t Casper the ghost, but these ghosts are friendly as well. How about bread cut-outs of ghosts, smeared with hummus and some black olives for eyes? Simply and spooky right.

Halloween style of veggies and dip! What do you think of carrots fingers with festive almond fingernails glued on with a delicious hummus dip? You can always toss in other veggies on the side to have with the hummus.   

So what are you waiting for you, set your cauldrons on fire and start off.
