A few weeks ago, I collaborated with Kite Hill in hosting a Paleo Waffle Brunch at my apartment for my fabulous foodie friends. We had amazing sponsors, a makeshift boomerang booth that I fashioned out of an old tripod and my iPhone which was on 20% battery the whole time (LOL) and of course… a beautiful waffle spread filled with sweet and savory toppings so everyone could make their perfect plate. I also learned a thing or two about throwing a successful brunch, and am sharing my tips!
But first, as someone who loves food but also eats in a specific way with sensitivities/allergies, etc. – it’s been a while since I was able to throw a shindig like this. And I so missed it! Entertaining for me brings everything I love together… I get to be at home, cooking (we all know how much I love that) but I get to have my friends over and EAT. And even better, everyone knew they could eat my food because I take a lot of extra care with knowing what people can/can’t have as well as trying to not only put delicious flavors together but to make them nutritionally-sound too. Knowing I was partnering with Kite Hill (almond-based products), I purposely didn’t make almond flour waffles for example, how much almonds can one have in a brunch after all?! So I whipped out my go-to waffle recipe that my nut-allergic, vegan, and paleo friends alike could all enjoy. It’s made with Tigernut & Cassava flours.
Needless to say, it was a total hit! Even my guests who have no problem with their own gluten-filled waffle recipes were chomping at the bit to get their hands on this recipe! I was so excited to see this, guys. And it just proves that not only can you have eating restrictions and still enjoy fun, delicious food – but you can control it best when you host and EVERYONE will love it and will be able to enjoy it! So I hope this post gives you the confidence and tools to try it out on your own because no one should have to sit in the corner with a packed lunch at a party or have to (even worse), not go to an event they really want to just because of it! I say no more.
*PRO TIPS WHEN SERVING WAFFLES IN BULK:
*PRO TIP: Get all the parts of the salad ready a few hours ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Dress the salad just before serving and voila!
A big thank you to our sponsors for this event!!
Using a tripod with an iPhone attachment (or just get this all-in-one), with a fun backdrop or plain wall is an easy way to liven up any party and get a fun ice-breaker going! We had a blast using produce and products as props. Check out my IG post to see some!
