Pan-fried scallops are delicious and you can enjoy them in a super quick salad recipe like this one. It’s Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) as well as super nutritious, low in calories and carbs.  It makes a great appetizer or lunch!

Why scallops are so nutritious…

If you’re unfamiliar with scallops, they’re the meaty white part found in clams. But they’re not just delicious to eat, they’re also really nutritious.

2 large (or 5 small) scallops (which is approximately 30 grams) only have 26 calories, but they have 6.7 mcg (or 10% of your daily value) of selenium, which has huge antioxidant benefits. That same amount of scallops also contains 8% of your daily value of vitamin B12.

Chia puddings are so easy to create but they make tasty and super cute pots of deliciousness.

They’re perfect for when you have guests over for dinner as you can make them in advance and just bring them out from the fridge when you’re ready to serve.

There are tons of different flavors you can add to chia puddings, and this variation uses fresh strawberries and a small bit of orange peel to flavor it.

28 Mouthwatering Ketogenic Soup Recipes

Louise Hendon | March 10

One of the great things of being on a ketogenic diet is that you often feel less hungry. And so, some days, instead of a heavy meal of steak or bacon and eggs, you might want a simple soup instead.

Ketogenic soup recipes (especially if made from delicious bone broth) can be very nutritious, high in healthy fats, and supply you with essential vitamins and minerals. They’re also a great way to get more vegetables into your keto diet.

We’ve put together a large selection of different ketogenic soup recipes below. You’ll find everything from traditional chicken soups to thick non-dairy “creamy” soups.

Why not try one for breakfast even! Many Asian cultures traditionally have soups (made with bone broth) for breakfast, so why not pick up this healthy habit.

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.

Pink Peppercorn Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | March 1

I got the idea for this salad recipe after trying a smoked salmon baked potato dish at Vertigo Cafe in Lisbon.

Philip, the owner of Vertigo, introduced me to the wonders of pink peppercorns as a delicious flavoring.

They taste so different to the regular black peppercorns you might be used to. Instead, pink peppercorns taste fruity and slightly sweet. But they’re still crunchy and fragrant.

And they go amazingly well with smoked salmon!

Scrummy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake Recipe

Louise Hendon | February 24

This recipe started out as a chocolate chip cookie recipe – I was testing out different combinations of ingredients to see what would make the best Paleo chocolate chip cookies.

Instead, I discovered this combination of ingredients made a great cake texture instead. The tapioca flour adds a fluffiness to the texture while the almond flour keeps it compact enough for a cake consistency.

Think of this as a thin chocolate chip cake. It’s thinner than a regular sponge cake but definitely thicker than a cookie. But absolutely delicious!

So if you’re looking for something a bit different to serve for dessert or to take to a party, then give this scrummy Paleo chocolate cookie cake recipe a try!

Coconut Yogurt Berry Parfait Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | February 22

Parfaits are traditionally a cold dessert made from cream, eggs, and fruits. But you can make a dairy-free, Paleo, AIP, and Keto dessert by using a few simple ingredients like coconut yogurt.

Make sure to use an unsweetened coconut yogurt if you’re staying Ketogenic.

If you can’t find coconut yogurt, then you can make it easily yourself. Also, if you’re AIP, you’ll probably want to make your own coconut yogurt to ensure all the ingredients are AIP-friendly. Here’s a slow cooker recipe for making coconut yogurt. Here’s a recipe that uses the Instant Pot. And here’s one using a yogurt maker.

Alternatively, you can use coconut cream instead of coconut yogurt, but I find coconut cream is a bit too rich usually.
