We rounded up 13 of our favorite healthy halloween themed dinner ideas to help you get started. Do you have a favorite Halloween dinner? Tell us about it!
1. Jack-O-Lantern Chicken and Rice Stuffed Peppers Anything made in a “pepper pumpkin” is a fun addition to Halloween night! There are a lot of different ways to do this- but we love this chicken and rice version!
2. Pumpkin Jack and Cheese Bowls Kids love mac and cheese, so this delicious dish is sure to be a hit!!
3. Witchy Guacamole Dip We love this cute witch dip! Made with heart healthy ingredients, it makes a pretty show stopping centerpiece for your Halloween table!
4. Jack the Skeleton Pizza Pot Pie The Nightmare Before Christmas makes an appearance just about every year- and my kids love the idea of adding his grinning face to our Halloween dinner. Making your pizza in a pot pie form gives you a lot of space to add plenty of veggies and healthy proteins!
5. Ghoulishly Green Vegan Potato Soup Love this pureed potato soup with greens for added nutrition and an element of spooky fun.
6. Halloween Cheese Board If you don’t have time for a big sit down meal on Halloween, why not try a cheese board? It’s a great way to provide healthy grab and go snacks to keep your little goblins going all night long.
7. Frankenstein pasta This fun and flavorful pasta is one of our favorite Halloween dinners! It’s just as easy to create the simple Frankenstein as it is to toss the pasta together.
8. Mummy Pot Pie I’ve seen mummy’s done a lot of different ways, over toast, as pizza, with hot dogs, and more. But these healthy pot pies are probably my favorite!
10. Mini Halloween Pizzas Whether they are personal pizzas, or one big one, adding a little Halloween flair is easy with your toppings!
11. Butternut Squash & Walnut Soup This simple and flavorful soup has walnuts for added protein and omega 3. It’s perfect when you want a subtle Halloween flair, or something for the grown up crowd! Heads up- the kids love this soup too!
12. Halloween Spaghetti How fun is this?? This spooktacular spaghetti is a real crowd pleaser. And tastes delicious, too!
