I bought some lemon thyme (a lemony-tasting thyme plant as the name suggests) from Whole Foods a few months ago and it’s been flourishing in the garden despite the drought here.
And since it’s been so hot in California over the past few weeks, I thought some lemon thyme infused iced tea would help cool things down a bit. And if you prefer a sweet-tasting iced tea, then try the plum infused tea recipe here.
My mum’s plum tree went crazy this year, and we had plums everywhere. If you open the fridge, there’s a whole bucket full of juicy plums, and if you walk outside, you have to be careful not to squish any plums that rolled onto the ground!
So, to help her eat her delicious plums, I’ve been devising new recipes using them.
This plum infused iced tea is superb for the summer months – plus it’s simple and gives a nice twist to your typical iced teas.
I’ve been low on time this past week, and so I started creating 10 minute meals (start to finish) like this one.
Of course, if you have more time or energy, then go for the more complicated dishes, but if you’re looking for some super super fast and easy (and cheap) Paleo meals, then keep reading.
One of my most popular recipes is my slow cooker bacon and chicken recipe, so I started thinking one day how else I could combine bacon and chicken into one delicious creation. And that’s how this recipe was born.
You might have already seen a version of this recipe that I guest posted on Mark’s Daily Apple, but here’s a version that’s even easier and completely AIP.
I call it Garlic Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites – super descriptive I know!
I love getting more gelatin into my diet, and making a nice jello dessert is an easy and delicious way.
You can make jello in a variety of flavors, but for something different, why not try this persimmon jello recipe (or if you prefer more traditional flavors, here’s my berry flavored jello recipe here).
I was frying some eggs one day and pondering what to eat with my fried eggs when I saw some avocados in our fruit bowl.
I’d once come across a recipe for grilled avocados, so somehow my brain connected some dots and went:
Why not fry some avocado slices in coconut oil!
This is the AIP (autoimmunne-friendly) version of the regular breaded fish recipe (posted here). This recipe is nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, but it still tastes great. I used cod here, but you can use other types of fish instead.
Enjoy with the garlic ghee sauce – it’s tasty, really easy to make, and highly nutritious! This is a great way to get more fish into your diet.
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).
And onto this AIP chicken salad recipe…
We bought this Instant Pot from Amazon around 5 months ago, and it’s been put to some amazing uses – like making this super tender beef short ribs recipe.
