Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | March 6

If you haven’t come across this dish, then you have to give it a try!

Adobo is considered to be (unofficially) the Philippines’ national dish.

Although the word adobo comes originally from the Spanish word ‘adobar’, which means to marinade, the recipe dates back to before the Philippines was colonized by the Spanish.

Chicken or pork was marinated in salt and vinegar as a means of preservation. The meat was then cooked in the marinade. Later on, Chinese traders introduced soy sauce which replaced salt in the dish.

Nowadays, there are tons of different ways adobo is prepared. You can add potatoes, chicken gizzard, and chicken liver to it. Some people even add pineapple, coconut milk, or turmeric to the dish.

You can also use vegetables instead of meat like water spinach, or seafood if you want. The possibilities for this dish are endless, so I hope you enjoy playing around with the recipe.

Chicken adobo is usually served with rice, but for a Paleo or Keto version, try it with cauliflower rice instead.

This chicken adobo recipe is a reasonably traditional version (except it’s made in the slow cooker and then served on top of cauliflower rice). Enjoy it for a delicious and easy Paleo or Ketogenic meal.

Basil Chicken Saute Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | January 25

If you’ve been to Thailand or enjoy Thai food then you probably recognize this recipe already as it’s a popular dish often enjoyed at lunch. And that’s because sautes (or stir-fries) are fast and easy to make and really delicious to enjoy.

So, if you’re looking for a super quick recipe to eat for lunch or dinner, then give this basil chicken saute a try.

You can make basil chicken saute naturally Paleo and Ketogenic by using gluten-free tamari sauce instead of regular soy sauce (check out this post about tamari sauce to see why it’s better than soy sauce). And for an AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) version of this dish, use coconut aminos instead of the tamari sauce and omit the peppers to keep this dish nightshade-free.

Enjoy this saute with some cauliflower white “rice” (recipe here) for a complete Asian meal!

20 Aromatic Low Carb Ketogenic Indian Recipes To Tempt Your Tastebuds

Louise Hendon | January 14

Indian food is so flavorful. But it’s often too tempting to order garlic naan or rice when you eat out. Plus, you don’t really know if they added sugar or MSG to your curry or cooked your chicken in canola oil.

Cooking your own ketogenic Indian food is much healthier and can be just as delicious. Many curry recipes use tomatoes, which can increase the net carb count of the dish. So if you’re looking to limit your carb intake more strictly, then consider decreasing the amount of tomatoes the recipe asks for.

We’ve created this list of ketogenic Indian recipes to help you pick healthy and delicious dishes to make for dinner. This list has a lot of different recipes – some are more authentically or traditionally Indian than others.

We generally suggest you stay dairy-free when you go keto as many people don’t react well to dairy even if they’ve been eating it for their whole life. However, traditionally, Indian recipes have a lot of dairy in them. If a recipe does contain dairy ingredients, we’ve labeled it as such and included non-dairy substitutions.

Asian Chicken Wraps with Tahini Tamari Sauce [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | November 2

This Paleo and Ketogenic Asian chicken wraps recipe is super easy and quick to make. What makes this dish so delicious is the tahini tamari sauce that you add into the wraps (don’t worry, the sauce isn’t hard to make at all!).

If you’re unfamiliar with tahini, it’s just sesame seeds toasted and then ground into a thick paste. It tastes and has a texture similar to unsalted pure peanut butter or almond butter. Tahini has been used in cuisines like Greek, Lebanese, North African, and Israeli for centuries (a 13th century Arabic cookbook references tahini as an ingredient). It’s fairly easy to find tahini in the US – you can get it in many specialty food markets, Whole Foods, or online on Amazon.com here.

Tamari may be another ingredient that you haven’t come across, but it’s a type of soy sauce that’s produced through the natural fermentation of soy beans. You’ll often find that tamari sauce is gluten-free whereas regular soy sauce adds in wheat as an ingredient. Tamari sauce is considered a bit more flavorful than regular soy sauce, which taste just salty. When you buy tamari sauce, make sure to look out for ones that don’t have wheat as an ingredient like this brand here. For more info about tamari sauce, check out our post, Is Tamari Sauce Paleo?.

Indian Sweet Jackfruit Dessert Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | September 4

While young green jackfruit has been getting a lot of press for its meat-like texture, ripe version has been used in various Asian sweet jackfruit recipes for a long time.

I’ve eaten a lot of fresh ripe sweet jackfruit already broken into segments in various parts of Asia (from Hainan, China, to Chiang Mai, Thailand). Recently, I started looking for ripe sweet jackfruit recipes and I came up with this one, which is based on this Panasa Mulika recipe. I’ve also seen this recipe called by a few other names like Kathaler Mishti Pakora and sweet jackfruit fritters.

I’ve modified the recipe to make it simpler and to make it Paleo and AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol). That means it’s nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and grain-free!
