Biggest Loser contestants get into the “spirit” of Halloween with some healthy fall recipes

Halloween is full of tricks and treats – which can be really scary when you’re trying to lose weight.

But the Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition II contestants are prepared. With the help of their BCBSM health coaches, they have learned that you can still get into the spirit of Halloween and stay healthy.

Last week Calvin, Mary Beth and Sandy met with BCBSM health coaches Andrea Abatemarco and Tara Albosta to put together a variety of delicious but healthy dishes including an autumn stew and brownie pumpkin muffins.

“Halloween is thought of as a time for sugary food, but that doesn’t have to be the case,” said Andrea. “The recipes we made with the contestants are healthy, tasty and festive for the fall season.”
