It’s hard to resist these chocolate almond fat bombs – they melt in your mouth like a chocolate truffle and fill you up with fantastic fats. And of course, they taste amazing! So give this Paleo and Keto fat bomb recipe a try. (For more info about a Ketogenic diet, click here).
Each chocolate almond fat bomb is then decorated by topping each one with an almond. If you’re not a fan of stevia, then use a bit of raw honey in this recipe instead (or use a mix of stevia and raw honey so you can still keep the flavor great but the carb count low).
Just make sure to store these in the fridge as they will melt quickly at room temperature.

With the popularity of gluten-free going crazy worldwide, it’s no wonder people are getting confused about whether they should be eating gluten-free products like gluten-free bread on a Paleo diet.

We’ve been scouring the internet for the best ketogenic crockpot recipes, and this giant list is the culmination of our hard work. All the recipes are Paleo, low-carb, keto, and can be made in your favorite crockpot or slow cooker.
One of the toughest things about any diet is sticking to it, and the easier your meal prep is, the more likely you won’t fall off the wagon. That’s why meals cooked in the crockpot (AKA slow cooker) is one of our favorite recommendations for those starting a ketogenic diet. Prep time is usually super fast (many recipes require you just to dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker), and then you can leave the slow cooker to do its thing while you go to work, go to sleep, or go play with your kids. Your house will be filled with delicious aromas when you return. And your plate will be filled with nutritious tender meats and/or vegetables.
We know it’s tough browsing through a giant list of recipes, so we’ve tried to group all of these ketogenic crockpot recipes by meat type – use our handy table of contents below to jump straight to a specific category. Or click on the green button below and we’ll email you this entire list of ketogenic crockpot recipes as an interactive PDFa.
Just one word of caution before you get started. The amount of carbohydrates each person can eat on a ketogenic diet and still stay in nutritional ketosis will vary. So, while some people may be able to eat an apple and still stay in ketosis, other people won’t. So, please experiment and see what your tolerance levels are. Many of the recipes contain ingredients like onions, tomatoes, carrots that are fairly low in carbs, but if you eat too much of them, they could still kick some people out of ketosis. If you need to stay lower in carbs, then pick recipes that don’t include those ingredients or else decease the amount you add into the recipe.

The sight is increasingly familiar at obstacle course races. Contestants fall to the side, clutching their calves in pain. I had always thought that if it happened when exercising, it just meant that you pushed yourself over your limit. So when it happened to me for the second time in a row, despite being in great shape and being well-prepared, I was puzzled. Why do I keep cramping, when I’m in good shape? I really had not considered that diet could have anything to do with it. But it did.
I was asked by a reader why chocolate chips were considered Paleo when they clearly contain processed sugar.
I have to admit I had a hard time justifying it – I mean, I couldn’t even make the argument that raw honey is somewhat a tiny bit “better” than processed sugar since chocolate chips contained literally sugar, and we tell people not to bake with pure white cane sugar.
These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.
Next time you’re going to a party and want to bring some desserts to impress the guests with, try taking these gorgeous layered peppermint patties – you’ll feel like a skilled chef rather than a home cook with these!
If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.
You’re tired and dizzy, you crave sugar, bread, pasta, and your mind wanders like crazy. You just started a ketogenic diet (or a Paleo or other low carb diet) and you’re suspicious if your new diet is making you feeling this crappy.
Removing carbohydrates from your diet all of a sudden may well be the reason why you’re barely able to concentrate on this sentence! This can happen even on a Paleo diet if you remove too many carbs from your diet. And all this feeling of crappiness is due to something people call Keto Flu (or Carb Flu). Read on to find out what is keto flu, how long keto flu lasts, and of course, how to cure keto flu.

If you’re diabetic or on a ketogenic diet, then it can be tough to find desserts to eat. That’s where this delicious almond butter fudge recipe comes in. It’s not only Paleo, but also Ketogenic (low carb and diabetic-friendly).
This fudge is sweetened with stevia, but you can omit sweeteners if you want or use other sweeteners of your choice. We think stevia is generally the best sugar-free option, but check that your stevia is pure and doesn’t contain other ingredients. If you’re not trying to stay sugar-free, then coconut sugar or maple syrup are good options for sweetening this fudge recipe.

If you're on a low carb diet or a ketogenic diet, then you might want to know exactly how many carbs you're taking in daily. And while nuts are generally pretty low in carbohydrates, there are some that are shockingly high in carbs like pumpkin seeds and chestnuts.
There are also other health concerns with nuts and seeds (like the fact that they are high in polyunsaturated fats and anti-nutrients), so try not to overeat them on keto or on any other diet.
We've listed below the carbohydrate content of various nuts and seeds. We've also calculated the net carbohydrate count for you.
Net Carbs = Total Carbs - Fiber
All the data for this table comes from the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release 28. And to help you remember all the numbers, we've also prepared a handy infographic (scroll down the page for it). Please feel free to pin it and embed it on your site.
For good measure, we also included the calorie count, the amount of sugar, and the fiber amount for each of these where it was available. We’ve organized the table so that it goes from high net carbs to low net carbs. In particular, we think brazil nuts are fantastic. They’ve got very few net carbs and lots of minerals that you might be deficient in like selenium.
All the nutritional data is for raw nuts and seeds and the numbers are based of 100 grams of the nut or seed. (We also included peanuts in this list even though they’re not a nut or seed because many people think of them as a nut.)
Nuts and Seeds, raw, 100g
Calories in 100g
Total carbohydrates in 100g
Total fiber in 100g
Total sugar in 100g
Net Carbohydrates in 100g
Peanuts (not a nut, it's a legume)
Coconut, dried and unsweetened

1. What got you interested in the Paleo/AIP lifestyle?
Developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). I was health-conscious before that – I ate organically, exercised regularly, but honestly paleo wasn’t even on my radar. When RA came into my life fast and furious, disabling me within 6 months, I scoured the internet looking for hope and found the AIP.
2. What excites you most about writing/blogging and helping people get healthier?
Autoimmune disease rolls through people’s lives like a wrecking ball. I love giving people hope again and helping them reclaim not only their health, but their joy in living.
Who says you can make pasta on a Paleo diet! There are tons of different ways to cook pasta on Paleo, and I’ve tried this recipe with both shirataki noodles and with cucumber noodles. You can also use spaghetti squash, kelp noodles, or shredded zucchinis.
So, if you don’t have much time for dinner, then give this easy Paleo spaghetti recipe a try – it’s also low carb and keto-friendly!
This isn’t some article persuading you that the ketogenic diet is the best one in existence and that you should go try keto today or you’ll be missing out on some great life-changing phenomena! But, if you have been considering a ketogenic diet for weight loss, then it behooves you to learn the facts and figure out if you’re one of the people that a keto diet could benefit.
I love it when people try this recipe and think it’s mashed potatoes. This amazing creamy Paleo side dish is made only from cauliflowers. Then by adding in coconut milk and ghee and blending it really really well, you can create a super creamy and delicious dish that will fool your family and friends.
If you’re not on AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol), then add in a bit of vanilla extract or use alcohol-free vanilla extract. The vanilla really adds to this creamy cauliflower mash recipe.
This dish is also great for those looking to lose weight but miss their mashed potatoes or those who have blood sugar issues as this creamy cauliflower mash recipe is very low in carbohydrates, and the fats in the dish also helps to not spike your blood sugar.
Personally, I think it just tastes amazing. Even just thinking about it makes me hungry!
