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!
These blueberry coconut ice pops are amazing for welcoming in the summer! They’re super easy to make and delicious to eat. Plus, it’s completely dairy-free, all-natural, and Paleo!
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.
Plus if you’re deficient in vitamin B12, which many of us could do with more of, there’s 220% of your daily value of B12 in just one crab (around 140 calories).
And here’s an easy and delicious way to cook Dungeness crab:
This is a really easy and quick summer paleo salad recipe with a simple coconut caesar dressing. Hope you enjoy it. And if you’re following the AIP protocol, then this recipe is completely compliant!
I used to hate steak. At first, it was just because I didn’t like things that had blood coming out, and then once I got over that hump, it was because I was too scared to cook steak. Steak is often expensive, and I was terrified that I would ruin it.
Finally, I decided to take a chance and try cooking steak (using the pan-frying method). It was easy!
Maybe my steaks don’t taste quite as juicy as Gordon Ramsay’s, but I still love it.
My simple way of cooking steak is to salt it before hand, then heat a frying pan with lots of ghee in it. Then carefully put the steak in, cook it for 3 minutes on high heat, then flip it and cook it for another 3 minutes on high heat. Then I’ll gently feel the steak with a spatula to see how firm or soft it is. Usually, it’s about medium rare at this point, and I cook it for 1-2 minutes longer to get it to medium. After cooking, I rest the steak on a plate for 5 minutes (some of the blood and juices will flow out) and then serve it.
Note – this is for a thin steak (for a thicker steak, it’s much better to stick it into the oven for a few minutes on 450-500F after pan-frying it on high heat for 30-60 seconds on each side).
There are plenty of ways of eating steak, but salads are always delicious (and I love how easy they are too). So, here’s my easy Paleo steak salad recipe with some peaches fried in coconut oil. (If you omit the ghee and cook with coconut oil, then it’s AIP compliant too.)
