How to have a happy and healthy Halloween
There’s more to Halloween than costumes and lollies by the pumpkin load. Here are three ways to have a healthier Halloween this October 31.
1. Play 'spooky' games
Whether you’re entertaining kids or throwing a party for friends, emphasise fun instead of food by organising some traditional Halloween games like broomstick racing or apple bobbing with red-dyed water. Getting people up on their feet equals more incidental activity, too.
2. Serve a ‘devilish’ dip.
Blitz 450g canned, drained beetroot, 1/3 cup (80g) Weight Watchers Sour Cream and 2 tsp horseradish cream in a food processor until smooth. Stir in 2 tbs finely chopped fresh coriander leaves and serve with crudité ‘fingers’ of carrot, celery, capsicum, cucumber.
3. Make a ‘bloody good’ punch.
Help trick-or-treaters rehydrate once they come home with a refreshing watermelon ginger punch. Place 1kg watermelon flesh in a large jug. Using a handheld blender, blend until smooth, then strain into a large jug and stir in 375ml diet ginger beer. Finely chop 200g watermelon flesh and add to the jug with ice cubes before serving.
