1. Healthy Apple Nachos

Healthy Apple Nachos


Time for some Healthy Apple Nachos. Yes, you read that right.

You’re using apple slices as your tortilla. And you’re topping them with sugar, and spice, and everything nice.

Okay, I was just kidding about the sugar. However, you’re topping your apple slices with melted butter.

Then you’re topping them with cinnamon, shredded coconut, dark chocolate chips, and hemp seeds.

It’s pure decadence – but good for you too.

Besides being yummy, dark chocolate is nutritious too. It’s packed with bone-building minerals like magnesium and manganese.

It also contains flavanols which may boost your brain function. And it’s an excellent source of antioxidants.

When looking for dark chocolate chips, look for one that contains at least 70% cocoa. That’s because the higher the cocoa content, the greater the antioxidant level.

Also, the more intense the taste. These dark chocolate chips here contain 70% cocoa.

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon


Looking to sneak in your veggies on Halloween? Make my Brussels Sprouts with Bacon.

The secret to the flavor is how you make them. You’re sauteing them, not boiling them.

This caramelizes the Brussels Sprouts. So, they’re sweet instead of bitter. Yay!

You’re also using bacon fat to saute them. So, you get lots of umami flavors.

And you’re tossing them in date paste. This adds a pleasant caramel flavor.

Lastly, you’re adding bacon. Who can resist bacon? Check out more 200 calorie meals here.
