Trick or treat you and your family with these delectable Halloween themed meals.


A night of trick or treating typically ends with lots and lots of candy. The focus may be on the sweets, but dinner should still have a primary part to play when it comes to Halloween edibles.

The kiddos are ready to embark on the candy trail, leaving you with little time to figure out what you are going to make for dinner. Don’t fret! Oviedo Injury and Wellness Center has got you covered! Balancing out the splurge of sugar with a healthy and hearty Halloween dinner has never been so easy. OIWC recommends these recipes whether you are hosting a Halloween party or want to surprise the family with a ghoulishly delicious meal. Here are a few recipes to create a healthy spread that is sure to make your family feel “gourd.”


Appetizer

 

Veggie Skeleton


This recipe is very easy and is “skele-fun” to make.
It also makes a perfect appetizer for any Halloween occasion. The head and body of the skeleton are packed full of nutritious veggies such as cucumber, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli and cherry tomatoes. The best part is that the recipe is completely customizable. Any of the veggies can be substituted and you can boost flavor by including fresh herbs. Ranch dressing is recommended for the dipping sauce, but hummus is a great dairy-free alternative. “Bone appetite!”

Main Course

Jack-o’-lantern chicken and rice stuffed peppers

 

This next recipe is inspired by Everyday Jenny, to the table. Orange bell peppers look just like jack-o-lanterns and the whole meal will “give em’ pumpkin to talk about!” With spicy shredded chick instead of ground beef and brown rice instead of white rice you can’t go wrong on the nutrition factor. They suggest cooking the chicken ahead of time or picking up a rotisserie chicken for an easier prep. It is also recommended to toast the brown rice in olive oil to bring out the flavor. Creating the jack-o-lantern face is simple to do by using a paring knife.  “Orange you excited for Halloween?”

Don’t let back pain make you feel like Frankenstein’s monster!!!

Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Ressler treats many conditions with an adjusting instrument called an "activator". It is a spring-loaded instrument that sends a gentle force into the joint and moves it back into proper position. The activator method is low force, precise and does not involve cracking or twisting. It is pain free and our patients absolutely rave about their results! 

Are your auto accident injuries making you feel like a zombie???

Did you know that discomfort from injuries sustained in an auto accident may not be felt for days or even weeks after the collision? This fact is remains even if the accident was a minor fender-bender with no damage to your vehicle. Florida Law requires you to have an evaluation no more than 14 days from the accident or you will lose all your medical coverage for treatment! The quicker treatment is received, the better results and prevention of long-term damage. Don’t risk losing the coverage for the care you need!  Oviedo Injury and Wellness Center has late hours and same day appointments available.
