A Healthy Halloween Treat {for you!}

If I had trick-or-treaters coming to my door, I would hand out Peeled Snacks instead of candy to help put an end to the rapidly rising rates of childhood obesity and type-II diabetes. Their organic single serving snacks are available at Starbucks, a great alternative to muffins, doughnuts and cookies. 'Much-ado-about-Mango' is my favorite.  But since no trick-or-treaters come to my physical door, I'll have to give out my treats here and maybe you'll be a lucky winner!

What's up for grabs? A Peeled Snacks Organic Fruit Variety Pack (a value of $22.99) which contains 10 single serving snacks: 2 each of pine-4-Pineapple, much-ado-about-Mango, Apricot-a-lot, Cherry-go-round & Apple-2-the-core. So you can throw out the candy that sits in your desk drawer and at 3pm grab one of these snacks. 

How do I win? Leave a comment below before Tuesday 11/1 at 9pm EST telling me what you'd like to see more of here on the Lunchmeat blog. Please include your name. One lucky winner will be chosen at random and announced on Wednesday 11/2.

GOOD LUCK! And Happy Healthy Halloween!


UPDATE: Congrats Nicole! Please send an email to with your mailing address so I can send you your prize! Congrats again!


  1. These sound delicious! I'd love to see more Lunchmeat posts in general! Other than that, there's nothing that I'd change - your recipes are all delicious and so simply articulated. In the recipes, it could be fun to see an estimated time (both hands on time and total time). I also enjoyed how you broke down the recipes into approx costs at the Healthy Living on a Ramen Noodle Budget class.

  2. Yum, these sound tasty! This week is my get back to basics week and I look forward to getting back to eating healthy and exercising. It's amazing how great I feel when I treat my body right.

  3. Sounds delicious! Your recipes are always delicious. Perhaps, more fast and easy dinner/lunch ideas? Thank so much, Jess!!

  4. I like the recipes a lot...keep 'em coming

  5. Mmmmm, the recipes are definitely my fav! I think I've made, and love, most of them! Maybe post some smoothie recipes? I also liked your tips on shopping smartly so whatever you can add to that subject area I'm all ears!!
