Paleo Holiday Recipe Roundup
 

So it’s the holiday season and you’re worried your going to have to abandon ship on your grain-free Paleo/Primal diet. I’ve come up with a list of my favorite recipes from this site to keep you on track! From holiday brunches to ideas for using up leftovers, I have you covered. From this list, you can come up with meals for a small group or a buffet for larger gatherings. I hope this helps you stay on track towards your health goals during this festive time. Happy Holidays from Chow Bella!

Breakfast/Brunch: 

Spiced Pumpkin Yogurt Breakfast Bowl

*Serving ideas: add fruit salad and/or sliced tomatoes on the side. Salsa can make a great accompaniment for some of the egg dishes.

Appetizers/Starters:
Superstuffed Deviled Eggs
Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette on a basic salad-especially good with butter lettuce
Pistachio Pear Spinach Salad

*Other easy additions include a relish tray with pickles, olives, and cut vegetables with guacamole or other dip. If you eat cheese, a cheese tray with fresh seasonal fruit (pomegranate, apples and pears–be sure to toss them in a little lemon juice to keep from browning, clementines, and oranges) and nuts would make a pretty presentation.

Side Dishes:

Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Frizzled Brussels Sprouts

Pumpkin Casserole (can also be a dessert)
Twice-Baked Honey Nut Acorn Squash (can also be a dessert)
 
Main Courses:

*If you are short on space with each burner on the stove occupied and the oven full, why not prepare your protein in a crock pot? You can set it ahead of time and food takes minimal maintenance while it cooks so you can go do other things!

Desserts: 
Grain-Free Sweet Potato Crisp
Gluten-free Chocolate Coconut Cake with Chocolate Pecan Glaze

Leftovers:
Southwestern Turkey and Vegetable Soup (use leftover turkey or other roasted meat)
Chicken and Kale Salad  (can substitute leftover turkey)
Chicken and Vegetable Patties  (can substitute leftover turkey or other roasted meat)
