Happy Halloween, everyone.
It’s the spookiest, sweetest, silliest day of the year! However, for those of us who are raising vegan children, it can also be a challenging one. How do we handle the door-to-door trick-or-treating with our plant-based diets? Beyond that, do we really want our kids coming home with baskets full of candy?
Yes, Halloween is a head-scratcher. I have done a lot of things over the years but one of my favorite ways to celebrate the holiday is by forgoing trick-or-treating altogether and making my own homemade treats at home.
