5 healthier alternatives to Halloween candy:

Organic LMNT Gummies

You can make LMNT flavored gummies using different silicon trays that are in the shapes of spiders and worms!

Instructions: Mix a packet of LMNT with 1/2 cup of water and 1.5 tablespoons of Gelatin. Mix together, bring to a boil, pour into trays, and let sit in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours!

Fruit Leather

You can find organic, natural, fruit leather that comes in a variety of flavors at your local health store or on Thrive Market!

Honey Sticks

The local farmer’s market almost always has the honey stand and they normally have honey sticks!  If you can find them local to your area, that would be best!

Chocolate Covered Dates

This is one of our all-time favorite snacks!  I like to take pitted dates, place them into a silicone ice cube tray, and cover them with melted Lily’s milk chocolate.  One tip when making – sprinkle sea salt on top, and then place the dates in the freezer for an hour.

Lily’s Peanut Butter Cups

Lily’s makes a delicious peanut butter cup that is organic and low sugar.  We like to order in bulk through Thrive Market for our office, and this is a great alternative to the Reese’s Peanut Buttercup.
