50 Spooky Ideas for An AIP Paleo Halloween (Boo!)

I can almost hear a collective sigh from us AIP peeps as Halloween approaches. How are we going to survive a night's trick or treating without cracking open the bumper tub of Haribos and giving in to shop-bought party foods?

I've got you covered. 

To get you prepared for the big day, here's a list of AIP-compliant foods you can enjoy this Halloween - there are treats for trick or treating as well as party foods and desserts that you can get stuck into after a chilly night spooking the neighbours. There are also dishes that still have some kind of Halloween theme but will definitely warm you up after a chilly night frightening your friends.

Get your spook on.

Gummies, treats, candies... here are some ideas for healthy sweet treats you can make up earlier and then hand out to local spooks...
