Sorry about the title – I coudn’t resist ha! I was excited when Pritikin Longevity Center + Spa reached out with some healthy Halloween recipes since I know some of you weren’t thrilled with the snacks giveaway going on. Did you know 4% of all candy eaten in the U.S. occurs on Halloween night, making the average trick-or-treater’s bag of candy equivalent to 4,800 calories and 3 cups of sugar? I just learned this fun fact.
Check out these healthier Halloween treats, created by Chef Anthony Stewart, Executive Chef at Pritikin Longevity Center + Spa.
