Let’s re-visit some appetizers!

Posted on

I am well aware that the entire world does not care about Game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals, but in my house it’s a big deal. Tonight’s game will be played on the big screen with lots of appetizers to enjoy! I decided to re-visit some of my Paleo/primal favorites! I have also re-posted my cocktail meatball recipe since I have tweaked it in the last few months! Enjoy….and Go Hawks! :)

Super Bowl Eats!

Posted on

If you are anything like me, this upcoming weekend might cause panic. Super Bowl means Super Bowl parties, which means lots of yummy and fattening foods that are not conducive to a Paleo lifestyle. Have no fear! Whether you are attending a Super Bowl party or throwing your own, I have created a wonderful list of paleo-friendly options that will leave your guests talking about more than just the commercials in the future.

All of these appetizers have been tested on non-Paleo guests, so don’t worry about making them for a mixed crowd! :)
