 Monday, October 21, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thank you for all of your comments!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Sara L.!



Lisa Irvine writes at Lisa’s Blogety Blog. You can find her at @Lirvine98 on twitter. If you have an idea for a giveaway, please let her know!

Any new lifestyle or diet change has it’s own challenges.  Giving up foods that you are used to love eating is hard!

For Author Kelly Milton, finding healthy, delicious Paleo foods to eat at parties, was particularly challenging.   She definitely has figured it out and shares her knowledge in her new book, “Paleo Happy Hour: Appetizers, Small Plates & Drinks”.

In her book, Kelly takes you through how to handle going out with your friends and co-workers without sabotaging your Paleo lifestyle.  I found that a lot of her tips apply to anyone trying to stick to their “plan”, no matter what plan they are on!

She takes you through what to drink, how to handle holidays and house parties and gives you many, many recipes to help you know what to serve or bring to any house party!

Here’s just some of the recipes in “Paleo Happy Hour”:

  • Pumpkin Waffle Strips
  • Sausage Mini Quiches
  • Red, White, and Blueberry Skewers
  • Scallop Bacon Sandwiches
  • General Tao’s Chicken Wings
  • Spicy Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms
  • Eggplant Sausage Sliders
  • Zucchini Fries with Sweet Onion Dip
  • Apple Nachos (YUM!)
  • Cookie Dough BonBons

I could go on and on!!!

Kelly even has meal plans that show exactly what to serve at your next home party!
