Ok, I know summer is coming to an end. But does that mean picnics need to end? I think not! The fall is the perfect time to have a Paleo picnic. Mild temperatures, changing colors, crisp air…it is all the perfect setting for a quiet afternoon with delicious food.
My friend is heading to Napa with her aunt and uncle in a few weeks and wanted to pack a delightful gluten & dairy-free picnic lunch for her trip. Now, I’ll be the first to admit I do not have all of the recipes in the world. So I decided to pull together some of my favorite Paleo picnic lunch ideas from some of my favorite bloggers.
Putting this all together has inspired me to go out on a picnic myself! I think when the weather cools a bit, I’ll be heading out with my kids and I may just have to utilize one of these four ways to eat a hot dog without a bun! Or, I just may want to get this freakin’ adorable picnic basket and head out for a romantic lunch with Superman!
Pin it for later!
