I’m totally the girl who goes to a party and immediately goes to the food table to start checking out what Paleo appetizers.   

Most of the time, I end up eating veggies and dip but come on, that’s pretty boring and who know what kind of ingredients are in the dip. 

Once I make a plate, I just kinda stand there and eat – yes, that’s me.  I’m the one who hides at the food table until a friendly face will come along and hopefully chat them up for the rest of the night.

Some Paleo Appetizer Recipes included

  • Paleo Crab Cakes
  • Lil Smokies
  • Hot Artichoke Dip
  • Buffalo Ranch Dip

To make your Paleo New Years celebration easier (or your Game Day or Paleo Birthday Party), I’ve compiled a list of 35 Paleo Appetizers to fill you and your guests bellies.
