For decades we’ve heard that people “bulk” up in the winter and “shed” in the summer. It’s not just bodybuilders and athletes—even average people decide to begin their diets in time for the summer months, and usually drop them come the fall.
Why is this?
One reason could be that the holidays are full of delicious foods that are too hard to pass up. Halloween, our first festive holiday of the fall season, comes with its own delicious food options, recipes and styles.
Sure, it’s easy to buy Halloween candy at your local food store, but why not liven it up with a few homemade recipes you can bring to a Halloween party? Not just any old recipe, mind you, but healthy, gluten-free options that are just as good for your body as they are for your taste buds.
Our friends over at the dailyburn.com recently shared nine Halloween-inspired gluten-free-recipes/. Below are our four favorites.
- Ghastly Tortilla Chips and Ghoul-camole
A play on words, this recipe uses corn tortillas as a gluten-free option for those who are sensitive to gluten. Full recipe
- Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies Treats
Why buy the processed, sugary puffed rice cereal bars in the supermarket when you can make your own healthy alternative with a hint of your favorite fall flavors sprinked in? This one has it all: vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Full recipe

Who doesn’t love a good shake? Now you can have the best of both worlds: a great tasting shake that’s healthy for your muscles and bones. The bananas, milk and strawberries will all keep you energized for the day ahead. Full recipe
