We must not forget the meaning of Memorial Day; It was established to honor the men and women who have fallen in while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It’s also the official kick-off to the summer season, Memorial Weekend!  Time for backyard barbecues or picnics at the beach. We have put together a menu for you to enjoy with your family and friends. It is completely Paleo/AIP, some of it is also Keto. Follow the links below to learn more.

For Starters, AIP Bbq Chicken Sliders

These biscuits have great flavor and would be ideal for any meal, but they make an especially great bun for these sliders. We served them as an appetizer, but you can make them the main dish by adding a nice garden salad.

Easy Grilled Vegetables for a Side Dish

Whether you are Paleo, AIP or Keto, this is a recipe for you. We’re all about clean ingredients simply prepared that can be cooked outside on the grill, made into skewers or seared on a griddle like we did here. The end result is delicious and full of flavor.

And Then Spiced Sweet Potato Fries

Another quick and easy recipe idea for you! I enjoyed the flavor of the spice mixture that Chef Ann put together for these fries. In fact, I would put a lot more on the fries if I were to make these at home. The beauty here is that if you mix the spices up your guests can add more if they wish.

The Main Course, Balsamic Steak and Mushroom Skewers

Mushrooms and beef compliment each other perfectly. You can make these up the night before so that they are ready to go when it’s time to start cooking. That way you are free to enjoy the day and your guests. I’m all about prepping ahead of time to make things easier!

What’s a Holiday Celebration Without Dessert?

Who doesn’t love ice cream and caramel sauce and hot fudge? Sadly, you might but your gut has another opinion. Well, guess what! This recipe is completely AIP. The ice cream is incredibly easy to make, but for me the standout here is the caramel sauce. OMG. And the hot carob sauce? YUM. You should definitely try this at home!
