Sorry Paul, if you're "too Paleo" for dark chocolate or ham on easter, then you're making this diet way more strict than it has to be. And I always check, all the Grandma's in my family still use real butter.

Dark chocolate if desired Ham nor dark chocolate are really paleo though. Ham isn't to a greater extent but if you're at a family's house and that's your only choice, I'd just skip it and munch on some of the veggies but avoid the mashed potatoes. You know there's gotta be margarine or shit in that

I do that except I use coconut oil instead of water and add a pinch of sea salt. Throw a few macadamia nuts into a muffin pan and cover with about a half-inch of the mixture. Cool in the refrigerator and keep there until you eat them. Makes a quick breakfast when you don't have more time.

Just save the chocolate for after dinner... that's not so hard to do. Then pig out on Ham and vegetables, and leave yourself only a little room for chocolate. Then have some chocolate and move on with your life.

Get dark chocolate cocoa powder and sweeten it with stevia... Mix a little water into the mix and it's like you're eating chocolate paste - and it's healthy! ;)

I make my own chocolate. All you need is coconut oil and cocoa powder. You can add some stevia or sugar for sweetness if you like, but I find the oil is sweet enough on its own. You just melt the oil, mix in the powder and then pour it into a non stick muffin tin. Drop that in the freezer and VIOLA! You have chocolate. You can probably do that with any other shapes you want for easter, you can buy chocolate molds at Michaels.

You could make a lovely slow-and-low cooked eye of round roast beef http://foodiewife-kitchen.blogspot.com/2011/01/slow-roasted-beef-cooks-illustrated.html served with mashed sweet potatoes or mashed cauliflower with beef gravy, deviled eggs (avocado and mustard mixed with the yolks and some smoked Spanish paprika for filling), and a fresh mixed-greens salad.

my mom told me they have nitrate free, uncured hams at trader joe's. i'll probably have that if i take a look at the ingredients and approve of them. she ALWAYS ignores labels so i wouldn't trust what she says without seeing the ham myself.

she's making asparagus, roasted lamb, fruit salad, and scalloped potatoes. i am making a spinach artichoke dip from the paleomg website.

Get some soy-free dark chocolate and have a little. If you are prone to binging, though, I'd say avoid it until you are able to eat a small amount and walk away.
