AIP Movie Snacks


This weekend there is a family movie event at my church. We're going to be watching a new film called "the Biggest Story" as a kickoff for our new school year. Kids and parents alike are excited. Everything is planned, down to the funny glasses and pompoms for the 'selfie station.' And, SNACKS have been purchased in bulk ready to be enjoyed by one and all. 

As I was shopping for the snacks and filling the cart with all kinds of processed foods I had a little moment of grief for the days when I too could enjoy all the junk food. I wished (briefly) that I could dive head first into the snacks I was buying, but then remembered how good I feel on AIP and wouldn't exchange that for all the junk food in the world.


BUT...then I got to thinking.... Just because I choose not to eat all that processed junk food, doesn't mean I can't enjoy some fun snacks for a movie or game night. And, some of it can even be bought in stores, and the rest can easily be whipped up for your next event. You don't have to just sit munching on your carrot sticks while your friends enjoy their snacks...you can enjoy your own delicious AIP snacks. 

Here's a fun roundup of AIP friendly 'movie night' snacks for your snacking enjoyment!!
