It’s holiday party season and when you have dietary restrictions, either by choice or due to medical necessity, it can be difficult to attend parties and other gatherings. Others don’t always understand how to accommodate your needs. Some people can plan for a “cheat day” but sometimes that just isn’t possible. The best way to handle it is to make sure what you bring will fit your needs. I’ve put together this list of Paleo Holiday Desserts so you can maintain your dietary choices and still enjoy the party.
