Spooky 'Shrooms for Healthy Halloween Eats

Whether it's the big boys or little ghouls, we all like to indulge a little when it comes to Halloween. 'Trick or Treating' may not be your thing anymore, but maybe the next-day 50% off is, like it is mine. To help, we've pulled together another frightfully fantastic list of spooky 'shroom recipes that will be sure to impress adults and kids alike:

Meals are made healthier using the Blend & Extend concept, blending finely chopped mushrooms with ground beef. The team from Ontario Beef took Living Lou's recipe for Beef and Mushroom Stuffed Peppers and made them a healthy meal fit for Halloween night! The whole family will love the flavour in these peppers and you can feel good about sending your trick or treat-er's out on a full stomach.

I know I'll be attending a couple of Halloween parties this year that will have a vast selection of sugary treats. Instead, I'm coming to the table with something that not only looks great, but will also let me feel a little bit better about sneaking an extra candy bar.

Mushrooms not only keep you full, but give you the necessary vitamins and minerals to keep you energetic all night. Fresh mushrooms are a perfect choice for low energy-dense diets as they have high water content, are low in fat and contain some fibre: three factors that will help keep you feeling full with fewer calories.
