Halloween is next Monday, but a lot of people will be celebrating this weekend. In honor of the upcoming holiday (the best holiday, in my opinion) and Workout Wednesday, today we have a Halloween workout and some great, Ketogenic recipes for your party.
If you’re a long-time reader you’ll know that I love sharing things on Halloween. Back in 2013 when the blog was still pretty new, I shared a Candy Busting Workout. Two years ago, I shared another Halloween workout that I created for a special Healthworks event with my clients. Last year, I shared 5 Tips for a Healthy Halloween.
A new Halloween workout and some recipes this year is definitely a win/win.
Framed as a workout for your very survival this Halloween, get ready to make your way through graveyards, avoiding zombies and flying bats. You’ll have to run, duck, hold very still, and try to sneak by!
Did you make it? I sure hope so, because if you did you get to enjoy some awesome food now!
Ketogenic Party Food
There’s just something about Halloween that makes cooking so fun for me. I think it’s probably the idea of turning basic foods into creepy, scary counterparts.
Now that I’m focusing on a Ketogenic way of eating, I wanted to share some Ketogenic Halloween party food ideas with you.
Monster Eyeball Deviled Eggs
- 12 eggs
- 1/2 c. mayonnaise
- 4 Tbsp. dijon mustard
- Green and Red food coloring
- 12 black olive slices
Place eggs in a pot and cover with water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Allow to boil uncovered for two minutes, then reduce temperature to low and cover eggs. Let sit for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and place eggs in a bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Peel eggs and slice in half. Remove yolks to a separate bowl.
To the egg yolks, add mayonnaise and mustard. Mix thoroughly. Add enough green food coloring to your preference. Using a spoon or pastry bag, fill boiled egg whites with green egg yolk mixture. Top green yolks with a black olive slice.
To make red veins, dip a toothpick in red food coloring and slide the edge of the toothpick along the whites of the eggs.
Spider Web Layer Dip
For this dish you can start with store bought dip (as above), but make sure the ingredients are keto friendly. Avoid a dip that uses beans. For convenience, use store bought guacamole and pico de gallo. Pico de gallo may be substituted with diced tomatoes.
- Sour Cream (full fat)
- Pico de Gallo
- Shredded cheese (full fat)
- Bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- Ground beef, browned and drained
In a medium dish, layer ingredients in the following order: guacamole, cooked ground beef, sour cream, pico de gallo, crumbled crisp bacon, shredded cheese. Using a pastry bag or ziploc bag with a hole cut in the corner, draw a spider web using additional sour cream on top of the dip. Add (thoroughly washed!) plastic spiders and serve with low carb vegetables or pork rinds for dipping.
With these recipes and easy Halloween workout, this weekend is sure to be fun and healthy! What is your favorite Halloween party food recipe? Will you try your luck at my Halloween survival workout?
