4 Tips and Recipes for a Low Carb Halloween

October 29, 2019

Halloween might be the most sugar-central “holiday” of the year, and all that sugar can do scary things to your health and waistline. But you wouldn’t want to deny your little ghosts and goblins the fun of hitting the streets to collect their weight in candy, so check out these 4 not-so-scary tips and yummy low carb Halloween recipes.  You can also satisfy your candy cravings without all the added sugar with AtkinsÒ Treats. (My favorite is the Caramel Nut Chew Bar.)

What’s also important? Well, you can’t have candy for dinner, right? You and your little trick-or-treaters can fill your bellies with a satisfying and delicious meal, such as low carb Two Step Salsa Chili and Atkins Cornbread, and end it with a comforting, warm cup of low carb Hazelnut Hot Chocolate. Then it’s time to tuck your little trick-or-treaters in bed, and you can enjoy the fact that your Halloween wasn’t so scary after all!
