Recipes for a Paleo & AIP Memorial Day

I am so excited about this Memorial Day weekend!

I’ll be headed out of town to enjoy a Memorial Day/graduation weekend celebration with my extended family, and I’m looking forward to a little music-filled one-on-one road time with my little sister! (Prayers on prayers that we don’t run into any crazy traffic… BLECH)

Whatever you’re doing for your holiday weekend, whether you’re grilling out, spending time with family, or just kicking back for a little blessed rest, here are 21 recipes for a Paleo Memorial Day celebration.

And, oh hey good stuff, almost all of these recipes are AIP-safe too! Only those marked by asterisks are not safe for the auto-immune protocol.

Wishing you a blessed and happy holiday weekend!
