Sydney is the cook and writer behind the blog Paleoptimistic as well as the @paleoptimistic Instagram and Twitter accounts. She strives to put an optimistic spin on life whether it be teaching Spinning® classes or concocting something yummy in the kitchen. She started Paleo with her fiancé to help him conquer his Crohn’s Disease (which is currently in remission thanks to Paleo!), as well as to help them both treat their ADHD without medication. For more inspiration and motivation on following a healthy lifestyle, check out Sydney’s blog (paleoptimistic.com) and follow her on Instagram and Twitter (@paleoptimistic)!

This Paleo barbacoa recipe is simply divine – you can make this barbacoa recipe with venison, which is what Sydney used, or you can use another meat of your choice (Chipotle serves a beef barbacoa)!

There is also a recipe below for a sweet potato rice side dish, and she recommends serving the barbacoa with the sweet potato rice, some sauteed vegetables, and some guacamole.

AIP CHICKEN SALAD RECIPE

I’ve always loved chicken salad recipes – you can make a large batch and store them easily in the fridge. And they’re great as a quick snack, a side dish, or even an entire meal if you’re hungry!

But most chicken salad recipes involve mayo (recipe here), which is not only a hassle to make on a Paleo diet but also isn’t AIP-friendly if you have autoimmune issues (read more about AIP here and get the AIP Food List here).
