Christmas is just around the corner, and just like many other holidays, the tradition is family gather around and munch on some tasty food! A great tradition, if I may say so. If you’re on the Paleo diet, you may be wondering what kind of Paleo Christmas dishes you can serve that’s both delicious and healthy. Fret not! I have 25 delicious Paleo Christmas Recipes right here – including entrees, side dishes, desserts, cookies, and more!

Holiday Paleo Diet Tips

Before we get in to the delicious recipes, I just wanted to provide some overall tips for how to keep it paleo for Christmas or any other holiday occasion.

Tip #1 – there is no need to be insanely strict. It’s one thing to want to be healthy and eat paleo, but really just one day where you eat green beans or maybe have a non-paleo christmas cookies really going to be okay.

Tip #2 – with tip #1 said, don’t over do it! If you’re always very strict, and never eat any gluten or any sugar, your body is going to be pretty unhappy with you when you suddenly introduce a bunch of junk to your body!
