A Gluten & Dairy Free Paleo-ish Superbowl
Last year, I put together a few gluten and dairy free menu ideas. You can see that post here. But what if you are avoiding gluten, dairy, legumes, grains, nuts and refined sugar? Hmmm, sounds kind of tricky, but here are few suggestions:
A very fun appetizer, is tuna stuffed deviled eggs. I used the recipe from the Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook, but added more garlic and onion powder and smoked paprika and chipotle powder. These are a big hit. Regular deviled eggs are also a crowd pleaser as long as no one is allergic to eggs.
These little bacon meatloaf muffins from Paleo Girls Kitchen are delish! I like this recipe because it is great as is, or with a few changes.This time, I did everything the recipe calls for, but I also added 4 cloves of minced garlic, 10 sun-dried tomatoes, and garlic and onion powder. The ones pictured are made with ground turkey and turkey bacon. These are not only easy to make, but they move quickly because they are tasty and easy to eat!
Pulled pork is a great football food. If you are keeping it paleo though, ditch the bun even if it is gluten free and use homemade BBQ sauce. There are tons of recipes on line. These were served with some very tasty kale collard greens.
These Lemon Blueberry Muffins from Diane Sanfillipo's Practical Paleo are really good. I mean, really, really, good. I really like that they are made with coconut flour instead of almond meal. I call these paleo-ish since they are a treat that shouldn't be consumed all of the time. I like having fun treats from time to time.
As always, it is a great idea to have plenty for fruits and veggies on hand. Kale chips, sweet potato chips or fries, zucchini fries are some great game day snack foods. I hope these few suggestions help you. Tomorrow we will be having some chicken wings! Have a fantastic day!
