Mini Spinach Meatloaves Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | November 28

I actually wasn’t sure if I should call these mini spinach meatloaves or spinach egg muffins as they’re partially both. There’s both beef and pork (as well as veggies) in them but also eggs to hold everything together well.

Whatever you choose to call these, they make a really nutritious and filling snack if you’re hungry. They can also make a great breakfast, packed lunch, or dinner! They’re easy to make (you do need a muffin tray though) and easy to eat. Plus, they’re low in carbs and suitable for both a Paleo and Ketogenic diet.

You can make these mini spinach meatloaves in advance and keep them in the fridge for a few days to eat so you don’t have to be cooking every day.

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.

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.

AIP Bread Rolls Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Egg-Free, Nut-Free]

Louise Hendon | October 5

If you’re on an AIP diet or a ketogenic diet, then having good bread is tough! So if you’re looking for a low carbohydrate egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free bread recipe that’s AIP and Ketogenic, then this AIP bread rolls recipe is what you’re looking for!

Because this recipe uses a gelatin egg instead of a regular egg to hold the coconut flour together, you will find that it has a different texture to regular bread. The coconut flour also makes the bread a bit denser and drier, so enjoy it with some extra coconut oil or with some ghee (if you’re ok with ghee in your diet).

No-Cook Refreshing Mint Avocado Chilled Soup [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | September 21

For an easy appetizer recipe that’s bound to impress, give this refreshing mint avocado chilled soup recipe a try. You can even make it with a magic bullet blender.

The mint leaves help make this creamy soup really refreshing and perfect for the summer months. I also added in some romaine lettuce leaves to make this dish very light and summery. The soup is served chilled and the lime juice in the dish keeps the avocado from oxidizing as well as adds a touch more flavor.

This soup is very filling and is Paleo, Ketogenic, as well as AIP-friendly. It’s perfect if you want something fast – you don’t even need to turn on the stove as you only need a blender to make this.

Raspberry Arugula Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | September 9

I love the colors in this salad – in fact, that’s what I was thinking about when I was creating this salad. I wanted all the ingredients to be green except for the raspberries – so I added in green olives, cucumbers, as well as salad greens like arugula and spinach leaves. Then I topped it with whole raspberries so that their color would pop out of the salad.

This simple salad makes for a great side salad to your meal and it’s perfect for so many diets – it’s low in carbs (ketogenic) and doesn’t contain any dairy, nuts, seeds, or nightshades, so it’s Paleo and AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol).

If you can’t find raspberries, you can use any other berry instead (e.g., sliced strawberries or blueberries). Also, if you can’t find arugula, you can use any type of salad greens you can find. Hope you enjoy this simple salad recipe!

I’m always looking for fast, easy, and delicious snack recipes, and this one just popped into my head one day as I opened my fridge and stared at a pack of prosciutto and several avocados.
