Halloween 2014 was a good one for sure!!! Between Barry’s Bootcamp, and a little client appreciation shindig that I had, it was a great time all around! My friend/assistant/client Danielle and I prepared some (mostly healthy) yummies, and people found themselves lingering around the food table unable to pull themselves away… which we didn’t complain about. Some were from the blog, and some were new recipes I tried out. I’m going to share pics with you here then post all of the new recipes very soon, so stay tuned. Although these were Halloween parties, all of these recipes are great for fall!
Danielle and I got a lot of ideas from Pinterest and some of our other favorite blogs! Here’s a pumpkin with fresh fruit skewers! Simple and so cute. This would even be great for Thanksgiving.
Another simple and really cute idea we got from Pinterest was clementine pumpkins and ghost bananas! Simply peel the clementines and top with a small piece of celery. Peel the bananas and cut in half then place 2 chocolate chips for the eyes and one for the mouth in.
One of the hits of the party were these Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins with homemade Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting. Not super healthy, but SO worth it!! Recipe to come soon!
Another yummy was the Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix!! I really couldn’t stop with this stuff!!!!
On actually Halloween day – I dressed up as Britney Spears and taught an entire bootcamp class as Britney to all Britney music. Haha!! What I love is that I’m a part of a company that encourages having a great time AND being healthy!! Barry’s Bootcamp is an amazing international company that supports this exact thing!!
When I do a special class at BBC, I always try to prepare a little healthy treat for after class! This time it was Paleo Almond Butter Pumpkin Muffins!! I made the almond butter from scratch, and these were a little mouthful of joy!! I’ll post this recipe soon as well. Again, a perfect little fall bite!
It is possible to throw a party and serve healthy, fun dishes!! Google, search and figure out what you can make from ingredients you already have in your cupboard! Have fun with it, and play with your food! It’s always best to stay fresh and non-processed with your food. Challenge yourself to find healthy twists on your favorite recipes!!
