Bachelorette Party snacks

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 15, 2012 at 12:33 PM

Good morning! I am going to a bachelorette party in June and we got an email with everything they will be serving, and of course, none of it is Paleo. I need some suggestions on snacks I can make ahead of time in order to stick with my lifestyle. I won't be able to cook at the party, so I need something I can make ahead of time and eat throughout the weekend. Thank you for all of your help!

Forgot to say: this is a dish that tastes good hot, cold, or room temperature.

I'd bring fruit, jerky, coconut oil (or coconut butter), almond or sunbutter, some raw veggies. So they aren't serving any meat or veggies?! Are they serving those things but you're concerned about their cooking fats? Do you need to be super strict/will you feel ill if you eat something cooked in processed oils? I'd try to go with the flow as much you can get away with (I know that's not the intent of your question, just my .02!)

You don't mention if you'll have access to a refrigerator or a small ice chest, but either of those could make a world of difference. You could take along precooked and sliced meats, boiled eggs, fruits, and veggies. I like to have small cans of salmon and tuna, as well. Vital Choice Seafood has some safe, clean options with pull tops, which makes it really convenient. No refrigeration needed for those, either.

The ideas from Jules are all good possibilities. I also like to take a few almond crackers when I travel.

Hi Julianne.

There are several threads on here that list all kinds of paleo snacks. I'd recommend donig some searching using the search bar at the top of the page.

One comprehensive list that is really helpful is here:

It's not specifically for a bachelorette party but these can be used at any event!

Good luck!

I always eat before I go to those kinds of things, but I also bring something to share (dinner parties included).

Depending on how paleo you are, I love tiny stuffed tomatoes with bacon, onion, goat cheese, served cold. Also bacon wrapped dates, stuffed with goat cheese, precooked, good hot or cold

google any appetizer and adapt it, its easy!!

Some good suggestions already. Another alternative is to eat beforehand and then fast for the duration of the party.

Agree with the fruit recommendation. Sometimes I bring salami, pancetta or smoked salmon, something like that. You could bring nuts if you tolerate them. If you need something more filling, you could make this version of potato salad I make which is quite good. Roast a bunch of peeled, diced yams, mix in a bowl with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, crumbled bacon, goat cheese, rosemary, and anything else you feel like throwing in. It's VERY filling and delicious. Probably not the kind of thing to binge on everyday but it's good for special occasions.

Thank you all for the help!! It is a whole weekend bachelorette party (Friday- Sunday) so I may have to just apply the 80/20 rule. They are having some protein that I can eat, but the majority of the food is non paleo (yogurt, bagels, hummus, chips, dip, etc.). I do have access to a refrigerator so I will be able to store some snacks. I appreciate everyone's help and look forward to sticking to paleo even in this situation.

In these situations I just apply the 80/20 rule. It's just one night.
