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.

When my friend Laura first took me to a Teavana store 6-7 years ago, I couldn’t quite understand the point of the place. Every tea was a mix of flavors. Nothing was pure.
I believed all the additional flavors detracted from the citrusy fragrance of an earl grey or the smokey deliciousness of a lapsang souchong.
Over time, I was transformed. And in particular, I fell in love with flavored rooibos teas.
So much so that I started making my own rooibos blends! Like this homemade vanilla chocolate rooibos tea blend.
One of the best things about many asian recipes is how quick they are to make.
Take this garlic beef noodles recipe for example. You can cook it up in under 30 minutes for dinner.
It’s also super flavorful – with garlic, ginger, and cilantro for seasoning.
I love making this tea at home. The tough part is finding fresh turmeric to use in it – you can find it in some health stores or in many Whole Foods Markets.
Finding delicious AIP breakfast recipes is tough. You can’t have eggs and bacon, regular cereal, or regular pancakes, donuts, and waffles. And even most Paleo breakfast recipes aren’t allowed on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP).
That’s why we’ve put together this GIANT list of 42 AIP breakfast recipes – they’re all dairy-free (no ghee even), grain-free (no oats, no gluten, no rice), egg-free, nut-free, seed-free, soy-free, legume-free, and nightshade-free. They’re even chocolate-free and coffee-free!
Don’t worry though – eating a health AIP diet doesn’t mean bland or boring breakfast foods. From AIP pancakes to porridges and sausages, you can still enjoy many of your old breakfast favorites.
We’ve also found some more unusual AIP breakfast recipes to provide extra variety.
How about soups for breakfast? This is actually very popular in many Asian cultures. It’s also a great way to get more bone broth into your diet.
Or want to try your hand at making a simple AIP coconut yogurt? We’ve got that covered too!

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.
Beef wellingtons are typically made with a pastry exterior that covers the meat and the prosciutto and the mushroom sauce. But you can make an easy Paleo version without the pastry by following the recipe below (or if you prefer having the pastry, then check out this recipe for Paleo beef wellington with almond flour pastry).
If you’re not familiar with the beef wellington, then just imagine delicious juicy steak wrapped in prosciutto (AKA fancy bacon) doused with a tasty mushroom sauce.
In recent years, the Beef Wellington has been well popularized by Gordon Ramsey on his many TV shows.
But this odd dish likely originated in England over 200 years ago.
The beef wellington is named after the Duke of Wellington (who is most famous for commanding the army that won the battle of Waterloo). The Duke also has a famous footwear named after him – the Wellington boot AKA “wellies” or rain boots – which is somewhat related to this dish.
The Duke was apparently not a great appreciator of food, and this dish was likely named after him because of the dish’s similarity in looks to a well-polished Wellington boot. Luckily, it tastes way better than it look!
This is a really easy meal, but it’s more exciting than a simple steak and sweet potato dinner. Plus, it’s a great way to eat some different vegetables like asparagus and mushrooms that you might not get a chance to cook regularly. The ginger and parsley in this dish really help to add flavor and the small amount of cherry tomatoes and diced onions add a touch of sweetness to the dish without adding too many carbohydrates for those on a ketogenic diet.
If you’re on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), then you’ll know it’s tough to get good AIP bread recipes. Without eggs or nut flours or regular flours, it’s really tough to make bread! So, we’ve compiled a list of the best AIP bread recipes on the web to make life easier for you.

Sauerkraut has always been one of my favorite dishes – it’s crunchy, refreshing, flavorful, and deeply satisfying.
You can eat it as a snack or as a side dish. It goes great with sausages and meats. And the fact that it’s fermented means that you’ll also get a healthy dose of probiotics with every bite.
But before I get carried away, here’s a brief explanation of what sauerkraut is for those unfamiliar with it.
Sauerkraut (which means sour cabbage) is a fermented sliced cabbage recipe that’s served as a side dish with many other dishes. Traditional sauerkraut from Eastern European or German cuisines are made from sliced cabbage and often carrots. The sour flavor comes from the fermentation process although you can make quick “fake” sauerkraut by adding vinegar instead of waiting for the cabbage to ferment. And you can of course add additional flavors and vegetables to create unique and delicious recipes.
Below we’ve put together a list of 11 different Paleo sauerkraut recipes so that you can play around see what you enjoy best. Click the green button below to download the entire list.
These chicken bacon sausages are delicious as well as easy and quick to make. Plus, they fit the Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo autoimmue protocol) diets. Just omit the egg if you’re allergic to eggs or if you’re on AIP. If you’re ok eating eggs, then I highly recommend adding it in as it makes the sausages moister.
You can make these by baking the sausage patties, or if you have more time, you can pan-fry them in some coconut oil for an crisper outer texture and more browned flavor with a hint of coconut.
This Paleo sausage recipe is great for breakfast – you can make these sausages in advance and store them in the fridge and reheat each morning for a super quick and delicious meal to start your day. It’s nutritious and low in sugar/carbs so it’ll keep you energized until lunch.
This is a colorful appetizer recipe that you can serve to guests at a party or make as a snack for when you’re hungry. It’s easy and quick to throw together so this could become a simple go-to recipe for you.
