5 Delicious Clean Eating Party Food Recipes

Today we celebrated my baby girls’ 3rd birthday with friends. It was such a blast. But having many very small friends over is definitely not the time to throw your food quality expectations out the window! 
So…what is a health conscious, food conscious, lover of sweets, lover of eating mama to do about a birthday party? 

Birthday parties, other special occasions, potluck BBQs, school snacks and lunches…these are all situations where I definitely don’t want my littles to feel like they are missing something because they are gluten free (most grain and dairy-free as well) and I prefer they eat only whole foods. It does take a little more effort and planning, but it can totally be done!

We served little snack bites and cake today. Aside from the lemonade (which was organic concentrate), there were no refined sugars, no artificial colors, and everything was pretty dang clean! It can be done!

Here is what the “menu” looked like today: 

✨Grape and Watermelon Flowers 

✨Lemonade w/ Berry, Mint, & Lilac Ice Cubes 

✨Paleo Raspberry Marshmallows 

✨Tulip Veggies and Hummus 

✨Veggies with Homemade Paleo Ranch 

✨”Flower” Veggies 

✨”Kind” Bars

✨Paleo Strawberry Coconut Flour Cake

✨Vegan Lilac Cashew “Cream” Cake

Think fresh. Think whole foods. SearchPinterest  (seriously such a wealth of ideas). Clean eating party food is not only doable and delicious, but it allows you to leave the day not feeling strung out on sugar and like you just ruined your whole week’s healthy eating work!
