Pork Chops with Green Apple Radish Salsa [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | November 18

I’ve always enjoyed the combination of pork and apples – the sweetness from the apple complements the pork flavor and the slight acidity from the fruit helps to cut through the fat in the meat.

In this dish, I’ve created a simple green apple radish salsa using green apples, water radishes, and ginger to go with some easy pan-fried pork chops. I also served the pork with some mustard for additional flavor.

You can use any cut of pork if you don’t have pork chops available. Pork tenderloin or pork loin steaks also works really well with this salsa. I wanted a really easy and quick dinner so I used a thin pork chop steak that is common in Europe. If you want to learn how to pan-fry pork tenderloin, then check out this recipe here.

Perhaps what’s best about this recipe is that it’s Paleo, Ketogenic (low carb), and AIP-friendly (just omit the mustard I suggest serving the pork with). So you can enjoy this easy and quick dinner recipe no matter what your dietary restrictions are.

AIP Trail Mix Recipe – Tropical Flavor [Nut-Free, Paleo, Allergy-Free]

Louise Hendon | November 7

Most trail mixes use nuts and seeds as the ingredients, so it’s tough to find ready-made AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) trail mix. But luckily, you can easily create your own AIP trail mix recipe with all your favorite ingredients.

I went for a tropical flavor with this AIP trail mix recipe – mango slices and coconut flakes and freeze-dried berries give a slight crunch, sweetness, and slight chewy texture to this trail mix.

Feel free to experiment with your own flavors if you have trouble getting these specific ingredients.

39 AIP Gelatin Recipes [Paleo, Autoimmune-Friendly, Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | November 5

You’ve probably already heard that gelatin is healthy for you – from healing digestive issues, improving hair and skin, to simply being a great source of protein. (And if you’re looking for a book with more general gelatin recipes and information about the health benefits of gelatin, then check out The Gelatin Secret here.)

However, in addition to all the potential health benefits that gelatin offers, it’s also a fantastic ingredient to have handy when you’re on an egg-free diet like AIP (paleo autoimmune protocol).

Gelatin (when mixed with a bit of warm water) can by used as a substitute for eggs in a variety of baked goods so that you can still enjoy delicious cookies or pancakes even if you can’t eat eggs.

These AIP gelatin recipes are also completely Paleo and gluten-free as well as egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free! So enjoy these delicious recipes guilt-free.

Note – if you’re sticking strictly to AIP, then use alcohol-free vanilla in the recipes. Some of the recipes use carob powder as an AIP alternative to chocolate powder as well. And as always, if you don’t tolerate certain ingredients (even if they’re considered healthy, Paleo, AIP, or otherwise), stop eating it for a while and do some testing to ensure there aren’t any other underlying health problems.

5-Min Super Easy Guacamole Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

I love guacamole, but sometimes it can be time-consuming to chop up all the vegetables to put into it – like the tomatoes, onions, and peppers. So, here’s a super easy guacamole recipe that you can use to make great tasting guacamole in less than 5 minutes.

This guacamole is great to use as a dip or to add on top of meat dishes as a sauce or side dish. Or for a really easy breakfast, serve this guacamole with some scrambled eggs. This is also an AIP guacamole recipe if you omit the optional chili powder from the dish. So you can serve this guacamole even to those on the Paleo autoimmune protocol.

Creamy Paleo Coleslaw Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | October 28

This Paleo coleslaw recipe makes an awesome side dish. We love to eat it with pork dishes in particular, but it complements just about anything. Unlike store or restaurant versions, this coleslaw recipe has no rancid vegetable or seed oils in the mayonnaise dressing. And if you’re on AIP (the paleo autoimmune protocol) or if you are allergic to eggs, then we’ve added in modifications to the recipe so that you can avoid those allergens.

Chamomile Mint Tea Recipe

Louise Hendon | October 24

I drink tea pretty much every single day of my life, and while I love good black tea with a dose of coconut milk the most, I do often also enjoy a good no-caffeine herbal tea.

Mint tea has been one of my favorite herbal teas for a while, and I especially like making it with fresh mint leaves.

But this tea adds in fresh chamomile flowers in addition to mint leaves to make it a relaxing as well as refreshing herbal tea.

Cauliflower Tabouli (Tabbouleh) Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | October 21

Tabouli (also called tabbouleh) is a light side dish (mezze) popular in Middle Eastern cuisines. It’s traditionally made using bulgur (a type of whole grain) or couscous along with tomatoes, parsley, mint, olive oil, lemon juice, and onion.

In this dish, I’ve replaced the grains (bulgur or couscous) with raw cauliflower florets that have been food processed into small pieces. This produces a texture that’s similar to couscous in texture and look. But I’ve kept most of the other traditional ingredients to produce a similar flavor.

This dish is Paleo as well as low carb (ketogenic). It’s a great side dish to serve to help you eat more raw vegetables.

To make an AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) version of this cauliflower tabouli salad that’s nightshade-free, just switch the diced tomatoes for diced beets. If you have trouble find beets, then radishes can be used instead.

Coconut Pan-Fried Pineapple Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | October 19

I’m a huge fan of simple desserts, and it doesn’t get much simpler than some fresh fruits! If you have trouble finding fresh pineapple, then you can find canned pineapple slices in many stores (just drain them before using). You can also use frozen pineapple chunks instead of the slices for a different look.

This simple dessert is both Paleo and AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol), although if you have blood sugar issues then you may want to limit your sugary fruit consumption.

Cauliflower White Rice Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | October 12

I still recall the first time I heard about cauliflower rice. A friend of mine who knew I had gone Paleo sent me Nom Nom Paleo’s cauliflower rice recipe. I was so intrigued, I just had to give it a try. And then I promptly fell in love with cauliflower rice!

I started making different versions of it – from Chinese fried “rice” to Thai chicken and “rice.”

This recipe here for cauliflower white rice is the most basic form of cauliflower rice. So if you master this, you can then get creative and make your own versions of flavorful cauliflower rice. Or you can just stick to this simple dish and use it to pair with stews, curries, and stir-fries.

Ginger Baked Pear Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | October 10

I first had baked pear for dessert at Alison Golden‘s house several years ago, and I was recently reminded of it again when I had a similar dessert at a restaurant in Porto, Portugal.

Baked pears are actually really easy to make but they are a fancy Paleo dessert that will wow people. Most baked pear recipes use autumn or winter spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, but I found the addition of ginger really helped to make it an anytime dessert and keep it AIP-friendly. There’s a very light spiciness that enhances the sweetness from the pears and the honey coating.

Many baked pear recipes are also made using pear halves, but it’s way easier if you don’t have to cut up the pear and hollow out the core. (I like keeping recipes easy!)

A few notes about this baked pear recipe:
This baked pear recipe doesn’t require much preparation, but it does need a full hour in the oven for the pears to get properly soft. I’ve seen some recipes (like Jamie Oliver’s) require less time in the oven, but I find the pears taste so much better when they’re tender and soft (unless of course you’re using super ripe and soft pears to begin with). So, if you’re making this for dinner, make sure you start it well in advance. You can of course, also serve this dish chilled instead of straight out of the oven. That’s how the restaurant served the baked pear dish I ordered.

You can double or triple this recipe very easily – just double or triple the ingredients.

This recipe is both Paleo and AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol), but it’s also a fancy dessert that’s often served at upscale restaurants, so it’s perfect if you want to impress your family or guests!

Pressure Cooker Beet Cabbage Apple Stew Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | October 7

It’s no secret that I love fast and easy cooking methods, and the pressure cooker (or Instant Pot) is definitely a great appliance to have around when you want to make dinner in a hurry.

And since this recipe is meat-free, it actually takes even less time to cook than other stews. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, then don’t worry, you can also make this beet cabbage apple stew recipe in a large pot on the stove (it just takes a bit longer and a bit more effort in making sure the liquid doesn’t run out in the pot).

You can make this recipe as an entree or as a side dish for your meal. The beets and apples add a slightly sweetness to the dish that really compliments the cabbage. I suggest using chicken broth as the base for this stew, but if you don’t have any or if you can’t find any that’s Paleo or AIP-friendly, then water also works fine.
