10. Halloween Themed Grilled Cheese

My go to quick meal! I like to use sprouted bread and add shredded spinach and hemp hearts to ramp up the nutrition of this classic.

How to make it Halloween themed? Cookie cutters!! Any shape, any size!

11. Skeleton Veggie Tray

I have found a veggie tray is THE easiest way to get Amelia to eat lots of healthy foods! She isn’t expected to sit still and she can choose what she feels like. Bonus when you’re in a rush like Halloween night, you can throw some in a container for the walk.

For dips, my go to is always Greek Yogurt Avocado Ranch from It All Begins with Food. Greek Yogurt is high in protein so it’s a great choice for making dips extra beneficial.
