63 Incredible Paleo Meatball Recipes

Best Paleo Meatball Recipes

Since we released our favorite Paleo Pasta Recipes last week, I thought it only appropriate to follow up with this list of great Paleo Meatball Recipes as well! What stood out to me though, was that many of these recipes are not totally necessary as a pasta topper –they are amazing as a standalone dish, meaty starter, or take-away poppers for lunchtime or a snack on a long commute.

Paleo Success Story – Adriaan

Paleo Success Story - Adriaan

I am a Software Engineer/Developer by trade, but I am soon leaving this profession to embark on a new journey, adventure, and career as a Nutritionist.

But much more interesting than my career change is why I’m about to make this change and what led me here.

My Life Before Paleo

Just over a year ago, I was morbidly obese and in a really bad place.

Normal physical tasks were difficult for me, and I was rapidly accumulating various illnesses. Without exaggeration, I had very high blood pressure, a painful hernia, frequent migraines, chronic acne, gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD), sleep apnea, and pretty severe depression.

What is Bulletproof Coffee?

what is bulletproof® coffee

I don’t drink coffee.  

Blasphemy, I know.

But I just don’t like it.  And I don’t really like caffeine either.  But I have tried coffee…

Why I Tried Bulletproof® Coffee

I was on a cruise, and Dave Asprey was there.  Awesome guy.  

But when I heard I didn’t like coffee, he insisted that it was because I’d only tasted bad coffee before, which was probably true.  And he insisted that I try his brand of coffee.

Giveaway! Win Rawnola Bars from Earthling Organics!

Win Rawnola Bars from Earthling Organics

We all know we should avoid mindless snacking, but opinions vary on whether we should stick to 3 square meals, or have several smaller meals with snacks interspersed throughout the day. I tend to feel better when I opt for the latter, although I do have to be conscious not to go out of control with my snacking. The best way to do this is to nourish myself at snack time with healthy options. I’ll admit, it has been hard to learn to just say no to potato chips and chocolate cookies! What really helps is when I’ve got something to snack on that is both tasty AND healthy.

When it comes to healthy snack bars, you have your raw granola bars. Your organic granola bars. Your vegan granola bars. Your gluten and grain-free granola bars. Now roll all of that together and what do you have? Earthling Organics RAWNOLA BARS!

The team at Earthling Organics believes that food should be as natural and close-to-nature as possible. Their food is produced in a California facility free of corn, soy, wheat, peanuts and GMOs. They feel that if you have to ask whether it’s harmful for the planet, then it’s not good enough for your body either.

We posted a review just last week, and now we’ve partnered with Earthling Organics to give variety packs (12 each) of their yummy and nutritious Rawnola Bars to SIX lucky winners! Check out their site to find out where they’re sold, and also enter below to win!

Is Monk Fruit Paleo?

Is Monk Fruit paleo?

If you’re anything like most people, you’ll read the title and think, “Oh, monk fruit. That’s great! …What’s a monk fruit?”

Monk fruit has been a hot topic in the Paleo community recently, as it may have potential as a new (and possibly Paleo!) sweetener. Monk fruit, also sometimes known as luo han guo, is a unique plant grown only in China. It got its name from the Buddhist Luo Han monks, who were some of the first to cultivate the fruit hundreds of years ago.

But with all of the toxic compounds and negative side effects associated with other artificial sweeteners, can monk fruit really be a part of the Paleo diet? Or is it just another Paleo no-go?

Paleo Dates with Cashew Cream Recipe

This easy recipe is fantastic as a snack, dessert, or appetizer.

I used to love blue cheese, and dates filled with blue cheese are amazing. Since going off dairy, I’ve been using cashew cream instead. If you’re not familiar with cashew cream, it’s really easy to make and almost tastes like a very mild soft cheese.

Maybe you’ve already given up corn, wheat, peanuts, or and other grains.

But if you are still eating any of those foods, here is a bit more cause for concern:

Paleo Broccoli Bacon Salad with Onions and Coconut Cream

Broccoli Bacon Salad with onions and coconut cream

I saw a similar broccoli bacon salad in the pre-made food section of my local Whole Foods last week, but the problem I have with buying pre-made food in Whole Foods is they typically cook everything with canola oil!

So, I created a similar salad with broccoli, bacon, red onions, and coconut cream. If you prefer more crunch, you can use raw broccoli instead (I blanched the broccoli first).
