Holiday Recipes That Everyone Can Enjoy
The holidays call for comfort foods. Whether you are hosting a dinner or bringing a dish, it can be hard to find recipes that satisfy everyone’s dietary needs. If you or your loved ones have food intolerances, there is no need to worry— we have found some great paleo and gluten free options that everyone can enjoy this holiday season.
Canned soups or chilies often have sneaky fillers and thickeners that contain gluten in their ingredients. Two common ingredients that may contain gluten are “dextrin” and “malt,” and sometimes it’s hard to tell what else could be hidden in these food products. If you don’t want to risk consuming gluten or wheat, try making homemade chili or soup with all natural and clean ingredients. Here are some easy gluten free and paleo chili and soup recipes to try. These recipes can be easily altered for a vegetarian-friendly dish as well.

Side dishes are sometimes the highlight of a meal and are a great way to contribute as a dinner guest. Bringing a side dish that you know you are able to eat is also a great way to ensure that there is an option for you at dinner and you won’t go home hungry. Paleo and gluten-free dishes are delicious and are enjoyed by everyone. Just wait and see how many compliments you get!
