Protein Packed Halloween Appetizer
When it comes to healthy bariatric Halloween recipes, it may be tough to come up with some protein-focused recipes. However, we stumbled upon these creepy crawly deviled eggs that are packed with protein and are super cute and creative! They’re also loaded with healthy fat from the egg and avocado in the recipe. If you’re looking for even more protein, you can swap the light mayonnaise with some plain greek yogurt instead!
Seasonally Colored Starchy Side
Add some additional bright purple color to your deviled egg with these Baked Purple Sweet Potato Chips! We love that the ingredients are simple and are most likely on-hand in your pantry already. You could even swap out avocado oil instead of the olive oil as an alternative to your oil source.
Festive Vegetable Platter Plate
