This is a great side recipe in case you’re bored with sweet potato mash or cauliflower mash and want something a bit lighter and more refreshing.
It’s really easy to make, but you should blanch your asparagus shoots before pureeing it and saute the onions for a sweeter flavor. Blanching the asparagus and adding in the lemon juice will also give you a bright green color and a fresher taste.
If you’re not familiar with spaghetti squash, it’s a melon-looking yellow squash that naturally forms golden spaghetti-like strands when cooked.
They’re Paleo, AIP-friendly, and low in carbohydrates (so Ketogenic-friendly as well). Because of the buzz about them in the US media, spaghetti squash can now be found in a lot of US grocery stores (including Whole Foods, Costco, and Walmart – they vary by location).
Per 100 grams of spaghetti squash, there is approximately 5.5 grams of net carbohydrates (7 g carbohydrates, 1.5 g fiber, 2.8 g sugar).
Spaghetti squash is super easy to cook – you can microwave them using these instructions here or bake them in the oven following the instructions below. You can also roast the leftover seeds from inside the squash to enjoy like pumpkin seeds.
I had some leftover chicken breast from making another dish, and I was looking for an easy recipe to make. Since I regularly make my salmon by wrapping it in aluminum foil and baking it in the oven (the foil keeps the salmon super moist), I figured there was no reason why this method wouldn’t also work for chicken breast.
So, if you like moist and tender chicken breast, then give this recipe a try! It’s such an easy recipe, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried it before. Plus, this recipe is AIP-friendly, Keto-friendly, as well as Paleo.
For an easy appetizer recipe that’s bound to impress, give this refreshing mint avocado chilled soup recipe a try. You can even make it with a magic bullet blender.
The mint leaves help make this creamy soup really refreshing and perfect for the summer months. I also added in some romaine lettuce leaves to make this dish very light and summery. The soup is served chilled and the lime juice in the dish keeps the avocado from oxidizing as well as adds a touch more flavor.
This soup is very filling and is Paleo, Ketogenic, as well as AIP-friendly. It’s perfect if you want something fast – you don’t even need to turn on the stove as you only need a blender to make this.
If you’re looking for a fast and nutritious dinner, then this is a great recipe for you! It’s super fast because the beef and the zucchini are chopped into thin strips so that they cook quickly, and it’s delicious because the garlic, cilantro, and gluten-free tamari soy sauce (use coconut aminos instead of tamari sauce if you’re on AIP) add tons of flavor to this dish .
It’s so easy to make mini burgers loaded with nutrition without the grains. These mini zucchini avocado burgers are quick to make and are Paleo, low carb (Ketogenic), plus AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol). So you can satisfy all the diets with this simple recipe.

I love the colors in this salad – in fact, that’s what I was thinking about when I was creating this salad. I wanted all the ingredients to be green except for the raspberries – so I added in green olives, cucumbers, as well as salad greens like arugula and spinach leaves. Then I topped it with whole raspberries so that their color would pop out of the salad.
This simple salad makes for a great side salad to your meal and it’s perfect for so many diets – it’s low in carbs (ketogenic) and doesn’t contain any dairy, nuts, seeds, or nightshades, so it’s Paleo and AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol).
If you can’t find raspberries, you can use any other berry instead (e.g., sliced strawberries or blueberries). Also, if you can’t find arugula, you can use any type of salad greens you can find. Hope you enjoy this simple salad recipe!
I love super easy recipes that are also delicious and nutritious of course! And this simple fish and leek saute meets all those criteria.

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.
You’ll often find bamboo salad dishes at Chinese restaurants as a starter dish that’s served cold. And this Chinese bamboo salad recipe is very similar to those dishes. However, to make it more AIP-friendly, I’ve used olive oil instead of sesame oil and I’ve omitted the chili oil in this dish.
If you’re not on AIP and want to make this dish more traditional or if you just want to spice up this recipe, then try adding chili oil and sesame oil instead of the olive oil.
I was looking for an easy sauce to mix with my paleo pasta (I used shredded zucchini), and this easy but flavorful olive tapenade recipe came to mind.
It’s super quick to make and involves no-cooking from start to finish. And for the protein, I used some nutritious canned sardines packed in olive oil, but you can also top your pasta with some pan-fried chicken or pan-fried fish.
Summer fruits are always so delicious, but if you roast them in the oven, then they become even more delicious. This easy Paleo and AIP dessert recipe features 3 different fruits (2 of which are glazed and roasted in the oven for a short time and 1 of which is served raw after the other fruits are roasted).
I also love the colors in this recipe – the deep red from the cherries, the faint red from the figs, and the golden yellow from the peaches. This dish is a really simple way to enjoy these fruits without too much work. Perfect if you’re on a Paleo or AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet.
When you’re sticking to an AIP diet (Paleo autoimmune protocol), you want to spend your time and energy healing your body rather than cooking all day long. That’s why the crockpot (slow cooker) is an essential device! In fact, if you’re cooking for the entire family, then we suggest you get two slow cookers so you cook multiple dishes at the same time!
If you already have a crockpot, then these AIP crockpot recipes will help you save time in the kitchen. Many of the recipes are just throw into the pot and leave until dinner time recipes, but we’ve also got AIP crockpot desserts and veggie side dishes too.
