Sure, you could put out a plate of raw veg, and that would technically work for your paleo, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and prebiotic/probiotic eaters (the superorganism-conscious who eat with gut health in mind). But you love your party peeps more than that, right? So, here are better ways to feed some popular diets this holiday. Bonus: These recipes can serve more than one kind of special diet...and they all work for your guests whose only food restriction is that things have to taste good.
