I'm new to paleo and really loving it, but still trying to figure out some of the practical aspects. We have a lot of vegetarian friends (who I have no interest in trying to convert, being a former vegetarian myself and knowing how annoying that is), and we're having a couple over for dinner tomorrow night. I'm racking my brain trying to think of something to feed them that is not meaty yet also not grainy and/or legumey.
I'm open to "cheating" a bit, and do include moderate amounts of dairy in my version of paleo; they eat dairy & eggs. Any ideas?
*ETA: Just realized that you can (and should) edit questions to provide updates/resolutions, so here's this: We did butternut squash-ginger soup (veggie stock, no dairy), big green salad with walnuts & feta, homemade bread (using flour we have on hand from pre-paleo -- only been paleo for a couple of weeks), apple crisp sweetened with very little maple syrup and topped with oats & nuts & butter, real whipped cream (hello, saturated fat!) with a bit of maple syrup in it. I skipped the bread, and mostly avoided the topping on the apple crisp. Couldn't really say no the crisp altogether, since we made it with the beautiful tiny windfall apples in our yard. So I "cheated" a bit (the syrup, a few oats) but had a great meal & a great time, and so did our veg guests. It can be done! Thanks for your input everyone!
