Hi all,

I want to invite my parents in law for a dinner. I know that my mother in law prefers paleo food. I never made a paleo menu bevor so i ask you for some advice. I picked up some ideas from http://onlyhealthyfood.com but i am not sure if this paleo menu is fitting good together.

I hope you can help me what would be the best to make her and my wife happy.

Ideas for Paleo Starter:

Avocado Deviled Eggs
Everyone loves this classic appetizer, but with the added creaminess of avocado, this recipe is out-of-this-world delicious. You can even opt out of using the egg yolks in this recipe if you're worried about your cholesterol. Simply omit the yolks and continue the recipe as instructed.
Avocado Deviled Eggs Ingredients:
2 Avocados, ripened6 Boiled eggs, peeled and halved1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp pepper1 Tbsp minced garlic1/2 tsp cayenne pepper Parsley (optional)
Avocado Deviled Eggs Instructions:
1. Slice avocados in half, remove the nut and mash the flesh2. Sautee garlic until soft and mash into the avocado flesh 3. Combine all ingredients except the egg whites until completely mixed through4. Stuff egg white with the mixture and top with parsley

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Ask anyone on the paleo diet what their top favorite foods are and I can pretty much guarantee that bacon will be at the top of the list. These bacon wrapped asparagus appetizers may even have you forgetting there was even a vegetable involved.
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Ingredients:
About 20 or so Asparagus stalks1 package thick cut bacon
If you find yourself with less bacon than asparagus, don't worry. The bacon's thickness allows you to cut the strips in half or even thirds without compromising flavor.
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 deg F2. Be sure to first wash the asparagus stalks and trim the bottom two inches.3. Separate your bacon and slice it down the center if necessary.4. Wrap the bacon around the stalk i a spiral pattern from top to bottom, so each bite taken has a little bacon. 5. Place the wrapped stalks on a parchment paper covered pan and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, maybe even longer depending on how crisp you like your bacon.
