Green Your Halloween -- Healthy Treats

Apples are in seasonIt's time for ghosts, witches, and jack-o-lanterns. This week we'll provide tips for a greener Halloween.

Tip # 3: Serve Seasonal Fruit

When high-fructose corn syrup haunts most Halloween candy, what's a health-conscious enviro to do? Keep the festive spirit, but lose the junk. You can throw some spooky dry ice into a vat of organic apple cider to make a great witches brew. Or munch on creepy apple bites and eerie eyeballs. For a seasonal craft project, consider a dried apple witch. You can also put your creativity to work making Halloween-themed carrots, celery, melons, pumpkins, and sandwiches.
