Eating a paleo diet can be a little complicated when it comes to group gatherings. Trust me, it is possible to not only eat delicious, healthy foods at Super Bowl parties, but you can stick to the paleo way of eating at the same time! No one will care that these delicious foods are dairy free and grain free, but your waistline will thank you.

These yummy recipes are great for anyone that wants to eat clean and still have a good time chowing down with the gang. The best part is that these aren’t just limited to the Super Bowl party. These dishes are tasty any time.

Please note that you can substitute your favorite paleo-friendly oil (I like coconut oil) in the following recipes if you do not heat olive oil for your meals. That’s totally fine!!
