The holiday’s are here! Lights, music, shopping, and lots of holiday parties. Hate ’em or love ’em, holiday parties are just inevitable this time of year. When on an elimination diet like the Autoimmune Protocol, Paleo, or another elimination diet, parties can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Do you eat before? Bring your own food? Risk facing the elements? How do you attend a holiday party and not leave feeling like junk while also bringing food that others will love? 

Luckily, these healing diets have such a strong online community making it easy to find recipes that not only you can enjoy for yourself, but easily share with others! Here is my complete list of what to bring to a holiday party if you’re following the AIP, Paleo, a gluten free diet, or are facing several food allergies.
