Happy Halloween

Vegan Blog Halloween2013

 

I have such fun with Halloween, and it’s not just because I get to dress differently. This is me several years ago as Daphne from Scooby Doo. A group of friends and I were each a different character from the show and my dog was Scrappy. Just fun.

Begin vegan during Halloween is actually fairly easy. But, some planning does make the day easier.

For trick-or-treaters, I hand out mini Luna and Cliff bars, little toys in poppers (kids love these), and other Halloween themed pencils, erasers, etc. No one is the wiser and I feel much better about what I just put in the bag of a little, or not so little, kid. My approach is a bit more expensive, so I buy less than my neighbors and just turn out my light earlier. It’s the older kids that come by late anyway.

If I’m handing out treats at work or another environment where everyone knows me, I will make vegan rice crispy treats, brownies, or cookies. Everyone gobbles them down and, again, I feel better about my contribution.

Halloween is all about the fun, so don’t be afraid to make some vegan fun for yourself.
