  • The Best Paleo Halloween Recipes

    Post From http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/PaleoPlan/~3/bu32Ml28b_0/


    Halloween is a festive time of year known for sweets and spooks, and we are here to tell you that you can be 100% Paleo and all-in for a delicious, allergy-friendly Halloween. The recipes in this roundup will help you throw the tastiest Paleo Halloween party on the block, or just spice up your kiddo’s lunchbox with meals that his or her friends will wish their moms had packed.

    Not convinced why a Paleo Halloween is necessary? After all, how bad can a little sugar be, right? Sadly, between food allergies and childhood obesity, Halloween is becoming a legitimate problem for many families. Paleo can help to address these issues while still providing for a happy, festive environment for children to not only enjoy, but also to thrive in. Without further ado, here are the best Paleo Halloween recipes:

    Paleo Spider Eggs by Paleo Plan


    Put a twist of Halloween into your deviled eggs (because really—who doesn’t love these tasty little snacks?)! In the spirit of the season, this recipe uses avocado to make the fillings green, and the spiders are made from black olives. You can make these spicy if you like, and did I mention they also contain bacon? Yep, these are spooky, delicious, and certain to be a big hit at any Halloween party! Not to mention, let’s take a moment to recognize the value of the protein that the eggs provide in the midst of the other Halloween extravagance. Not a fan of olives? No worries—leave them off and replace them with spooky little Halloween toys, or use mushrooms instead!

    Whoopie Pies with Pumpkin Filling by Living Healthy with Chocolate


    Miss the delightful feeling of unwrapping those overly processed little packages of whoopie pies? Now you can experience the same satisfaction with a supreme flavor and Paleo-friendly ingredients. I’m here to tell you that these treats work at any time of the year.

    Green Slime Paleo Pumpkin Pudding by Paleo Plan


    Want an easy side dish that you can whip together, and easily style with whatever Halloween critters you have laying around? This dish is sure to be a delight and best of all, it’s not artificially colored at all. Thanks to the mashed avocado, this pudding is a superfood and spooky, but not a Frankenfood that parents should be scared for their kids to consume.

    Tangerine Pumpkins, Banana Ghosts by Weelicious


    If your child has numerous food allergies, you can still celebrate the festive nature of Halloween by making this adorable fruit food art dish. Halloween doesn’t need to have refined or Paleo sugars in it to be sweet.

    Halloweiners or Lil’ Mummies by Paleo Plan


    These little mummies are sure to be a hit with the little kids and the big kids as well! They are made from all natural lil’ smokie cocktail wieners wrapped in almond-flour ‘bandages.’ The perfect bite-sized spooky snack for your Halloween gathering—your friends won’t even realize that they’re grain- and dairy-free, and low carb to boot!

    Halloween Hasselback Sweet Potato Bugs by Following My Nose

    I just know there’s going to come a day when my son (currently 10 months old) is going to realize that bugs are cool. Perhaps I will be able to convince him that although mama is scared of the live ones, we can compromise and make these cool treats, instead?

    Paleo Ghost Truffles by Living Healthy With Chocolate


    Need that sweet, satisfying taste of chocolate? Spook it up by turning it into a ghost truffle! Your kiddos will love it, but really, will there be any left for them?

    Pumpkin Coffee and Cookie Bars by Brittany Angell


    I’ve been crushing on these pumpkin coffee bars for months now, but what better time to make use of them than Halloween? Brittany Angell is one of my favorite Paleo and allergen-friendly recipe creators, and I’ve yet to be disappointed by one of her dishes.

    Sour Watermelon Homemade Gummies by Meatified


    Gummies are a kid’s best friend! While most store-bought kinds may be full of refined sugar, these are actually tasty and healthy. The gelatin that they contain is a superfood for gut health, which will strengthen the immune system of your little ones.

    Chocolate Pumpkin Candies by Veggie Staples


    Pumpkiny chocolates? I dare say it doesn’t get more Halloween than that! And because they use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, they’re free from the common allergens that children suffer from—making them a super safe bet for your sensitive kiddo.

    Skull Gummies by Predominantly Paleo


    I recently reviewed Jennifer Robins’ book Paleo For Kids, and I have to say, she really knows what she’s doing with Paleoizing food that kids will actually enjoy. Plus, these also have the bonus of being gut-friendly (which is the perfect excuse for adults to enjoy them, too!).

    Grain-Free Spooky Breadstick Fingers by Brittany Angell


    Want a Halloween dish that isn’t sweet? Try these breadsticks with pepperoni that are just creepy enough to be the coolest dish on the Halloween menu.

    Paleo Candy Corn Gummies by Plaid and Paleo


    These citrusy, tropical gummies are the perfect eye candy for Halloween—they give the classic flair of candy corn while being the perfect Paleo treat: filled with superfoods and free from dyes and preservatives.

    Paleo Halloween Cupcakes by Elana’s Pantry


    Maybe you just want to go a traditional route and let them eat cake. In that case, make these festive Halloween cupcakes which are sure to have your guests saying all treat and no trick.

    Candy Corn Popsicles by Paleo Girl’s Kitchen


    Do you live somewhere with a warmer climate for Halloween? Try these refreshing Paleo popsicles that still bring that Halloween charm, without excessive amounts of sugar. You can even customize the kinds of fruit used to jive with your kids’ palates, especially if you happen to have picky eaters on your hands.

    Veggie Skeleton by Feeding Frenzy


    Need to convince your little ghosts and goblins to eat more veggies? Dress them up like a skeleton. Or maybe you just feel compelled to have one vegetable dish on the table filled with other Paleo Halloween treats—this one will keep the theme going and give a serious upgrade to a boring vegetable tray.

      • Simpsons did it.
      • As Sarah always says, what’s the use of her degree and research acumen if she can’t use it to help her friends?
      • Our topic today is nickel allergies, thanks to Stacy’s mom!
    • Are nickel allergies a thing? Not topical allergies, but food allergies to nickel. (4:38)
      • Stacy’s mom, Carol, has a skin rash that has been around for years, but with no known cause.
      • Stacy has been encouraging her to stop eating corn and nightshades
      • Carol found an article that linked these kind of allergic reactions to nickel allergies, and they started after she wore a ring that contained nickel.
      • Topical nickel allergy is very well established. People have reactions to nickel jewelry and such
      • Not well established is systemic nickel allergy, the kind that could happen when you ingest it.
      • Nickel is a trace mineral that we do need in small quantities.
      • Helps with bones, iron absorption, DNA synthesis and gut microbiome.
      • Affects 10-20% of the population
      • Some get dermatitis of the hands and feet, some have whole body excema
      • If you give people a dose of nickel, they’ll react to it, but this is much more than the dietary recommendation
      • Some small studies have done elimination diet of nickel with some success.
      • There are things you can do to counteract nickel sensitivity. Vitamin C reduces absorption and high phytates as well, though that has its own problems.
      • High nickel foods: Grains, beans, fish and seafoods, soy, oatmeal, nuts and almonds, milk, chocolate and canned foods.
      • Some of these are from the processing and the growing conditions.
      • Systemic nickel hypersensitivity: all the bad things
      • Skin issues, GI symptoms, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches, cold sores, respiratory disorders may be linked, but evidence is very scant at this point.
      • Some nickel is used in black and red tattoo inks too.
      • Cosmetic products and smoking as well.
      • Nickel is an extremely common metal as well. Exposure could be from zippers or coins or keys as well.
      • Vegetables: Spinach and lettuce and gelatin, but not well established
      • And studies are not clear on how many people can be helped by a low nickel diet
      • Mom needs to give up the corn. For real.
      • Skin barrier function is helped by Vitamin A and D.
      • Should you get a tattoo removed? Probably not. Work with a health professional to increase liver and kidney function, then reduce heavy metals in the diet generally and up the Vitamin C

  • The Paleo Mom’s Thanksgiving Feast, My FREE e-book!

    Post From http://www.thepaleomom.com/thanksgiving-paleo-aip-meal-plan/


    My fifth website anniversary was just yesterday, Friday November 4th!!!  Woot!! To celebrate this BIG milestone, I had my ‘Thanksgiving Feast’ ebook re-designed and made available again for FREE for a limited time!! This awesome resource will give you all the tools you need for a completely AIP or Paleo Thanksgiving celebration (or allow you to cater to both crowds!). It’s my way of saying “Thank You” for five years of amazing readers, thoughtful questions and incredible support! Simply sign up for my email list to receive the ebook today!!

    If you’re already on my email list, you’ll receive Thanksgiving Feast in this Sunday’s newsletter!

    The Paleo Mom’s Thanksgiving Feast comes out of my desire to help make a potentially stressful holiday a little bit easier. This ebook includes 24 awesome holiday recipes, but this is so much more than just a holiday recipe ebook. I wanted to give you an incredible resource that would truly help you reduce Holiday stress. So what’s inside?

    The Paleo Mom’s Thanksgiving Feast includes:

    • the-paleo-mom-thanksgiving-feast-aip-menuA full Paleo menu plus shopping list
    • A full Autoimmune Protocol-friendly menu plus shopping list
    • A 1-oven meal timeline plan
    • A 2-oven meal timeline plan
    • Thanksgiving Party Games
    • A list of my favorite shopping resources and where to buy my favorite products
    • 24 FABULOUS recipes

    I absolutely love Thanksgiving! In fact, it’s my favorite holiday (it’s all about great food, family and friends, but with a lower chance of being stranded in snowstorms while traveling and without the pressure of buying great presents for everybody!).  I will admit, though, that making dishes that are pleasing to non-Paleo family and compliant with our specific diets can seem a little intimidating. I remember the first time I made a Paleo Thanksgiving. Some of my recipes from that day are still my favorites, but it definitely takes some trial and error to get it right. I want to help you avoid all that wasted effort!

    We all know that with an amazing community of bloggers and recipe geniuses, finding delicious dishes isn’t too hard. What’s tougher is planning out a shopping list, creating a timeline and determining how much food to make for your guests. When do I bake the pie? When does the turkey go in the oven? When do I find time to set the table?

    thanksgiving-ebook-shareableThis e-book has you covered with TWO complete menus and shopping lists for an AIP or Paleo Thanksgiving. It also includes two separate cooking timelines so you’ll be completely in control. Worried about working with one oven? Never fear – I’ve provided options in the timeline for different kitchen setups!

    And, if you need a little more flexibility, you can mix and match the more than 20 recipes in the book—including never-before-seen recipes for AIP and yeast dinner rolls—to create your own delicious dinner.

    You can still get The Paleo Mom’s Thanksgiving Feast by signing up for my newsletter here. You’ll be sent an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription and once you do, the free PDF will be sent to your inbox! Yay!!!

    I said it before, but I’ll say it again: I’m SO THANKFUL for all of your support!! I hope you have an amazing holiday season!!
