Easy No-Cook Raw Veggie Deli Meat Wraps [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 20

These deli wraps are super easy to make and will help you get more raw vegetables into your Paleo or Ketogenic diet.

You don’t need to do any cooking for this dish, and since everyone will be making their own wraps, they can pick and choose what they want to add in. You can also change the vegetables to use whatever is available near you. I suggest adding in the avocado (or use guacamole) for some creaminess and healthy fats and also the chopped parsley for a slight herb flavor.

This dish is fantastic for summer evenings when you’re too tired to cook. All that’s required is a bit of chopping. If you don’t have a good chef’s knife for chopping vegetables, then I highly suggest getting one (like this one) as it will make chopping vegetables so much easier and less frustrating.

You can use any type of deli meat as the wrap (although a thicker slice will help hold the vegetables in the wrap more easily) – I used some ham for this recipe, but turkey or chicken will also work well. If you’re wondering whether deli meat is healthy or whether deli meat is Paleo, then check out this article. Try to find higher quality deli meat without added sugar.

For the sauces, I used some Paleo mayo and some mustard. You can make your own Paleo mayo using coconut oil following this mayo recipe here or you can purchase avocado mayo from Amazon here. The main thing is to try not to eat much seed oils, and most mayonnaise is made from seed oils like canola and sunflower, which are typically rancid.

Easy Keto Guacamole Recipe with Lime Pieces [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 16

One of the things I love about traveling is experiencing new food and learning new ways to use ingredients.

Recently, in Portugal, I started noticing that many of the dishes used lemon and lime with the peel on. So the entire citrus fruit was used to give a stronger flavor as well as texture. So, for this Paleo guacamole recipe, I used a slice of lime diced up with the peel on. It added an extra burst of lime flavor to the guacamole that made it stand out.

This recipe is also great for those on a ketogenic diet as instead of using regular tomatoes, I only use 2 small cherry tomatoes to keep the net carbohydrate count low.

If you prefer an easier and faster guacamole recipe, then check out the Super Easy Guacamole Recipe here.

20 Aromatic Low Carb Ketogenic Indian Recipes To Tempt Your Tastebuds

Louise Hendon | January 14

Indian food is so flavorful. But it’s often too tempting to order garlic naan or rice when you eat out. Plus, you don’t really know if they added sugar or MSG to your curry or cooked your chicken in canola oil.

Cooking your own ketogenic Indian food is much healthier and can be just as delicious. Many curry recipes use tomatoes, which can increase the net carb count of the dish. So if you’re looking to limit your carb intake more strictly, then consider decreasing the amount of tomatoes the recipe asks for.

We’ve created this list of ketogenic Indian recipes to help you pick healthy and delicious dishes to make for dinner. This list has a lot of different recipes – some are more authentically or traditionally Indian than others.

We generally suggest you stay dairy-free when you go keto as many people don’t react well to dairy even if they’ve been eating it for their whole life. However, traditionally, Indian recipes have a lot of dairy in them. If a recipe does contain dairy ingredients, we’ve labeled it as such and included non-dairy substitutions.

Easy Fajitas Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 4

Fajitas are delicious, and if you eat them without the tortilla wraps, then they’re Paleo and Ketogenic.

Here’s a super easy fajitas recipe made with steak (you can use leftover steak you have at home or switch it for sliced chicken breast instead), onions, bell peppers, and some spices.

I love how quick this recipe is to make – you could be eating these easy fajitas recipe in just 20 minutes! And then top it with some delicious super fast guacamole for a wonderful meal complete with meats, veggies, and lots of healthy fats.

Mini Fish Cakes Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 2

Having gotten my parents interested in eating Paleo, my mum has been coming up with new recipes as well and this is one of her creations that has gotten a lot of praise from her friends.

If you’re only used to eating fish pan-seared, then seeing fish cooked in this way might shock you, but if you think of fish as a meat, then this recipe isn’t that different to a mini-meatloaf recipe.

Give it a try – it’s really easy to make and really delicious. Plus, these mini fish cakes are easy to store and pack for lunch or as a snack.

Keto Chicken Sandwich Recipe with Toasted Italian Grain-Free Bread [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | December 28

While this recipe requires a few more steps, it’s still remarkably easy to make and you could be eating this keto chicken sandwich in just 30 minutes or less (if you cook fast).

By cutting the chicken breast into thin pieces, it cooks much faster. And by coating the chicken pieces with garlic powder and paprika, the chicken as well as the grain-free bread has tons of flavor. (And the chicken slices are kept moist by coating it with an egg mixture.)

The Italian grain-free bread recipe is based on the Microwave Paleo Bread recipe, but I’ve added in some flavorful herbs like Italian seasoning and garlic powder to imbue the bread with more flavor. After the bread is cooked (which takes 5 minutes), it’s sliced and then toasted in the oven to give it a crisp exterior. If you’re in a hurry, then you don’t need to toast the bread before serving the sandwich.

Bifteck Hache (French Hamburgers) Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | December 26

Burgers without the bun can often seem unsatisfying, but these bifteck hache adds tons of flavor to the burgers by adding both thyme and onion to the meat mixture itself as well as a sauce to enjoy the burgers with.

For a quick and satisfying meal, give this simple Paleo and Ketogenic-friendly recipe a try.

I highly suggest cooking this dish with ghee as it adds that buttery flavor that’s delicious. And to give the sauce more flavor, you can also add extra chopped onions to it if you wish.

No-Pastry Beef Wellington Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | December 23

Beef wellingtons are typically made with a pastry exterior that covers the meat and the prosciutto and the mushroom sauce. But you can make an easy Paleo version without the pastry by following the recipe below (or if you prefer having the pastry, then check out this recipe for Paleo beef wellington with almond flour pastry).

If you’re not familiar with the beef wellington, then just imagine delicious juicy steak wrapped in prosciutto (AKA fancy bacon) doused with a tasty mushroom sauce.

Brief History of Beef Wellington

In recent years, the Beef Wellington has been well popularized by Gordon Ramsey on his many TV shows.

But this odd dish likely originated in England over 200 years ago.

The beef wellington is named after the Duke of Wellington (who is most famous for commanding the army that won the battle of Waterloo). The Duke also has a famous footwear named after him – the Wellington boot AKA “wellies” or rain boots – which is somewhat related to this dish.

The Duke was apparently not a great appreciator of food, and this dish was likely named after him because of the dish’s similarity in looks to a well-polished Wellington boot. Luckily, it tastes way better than it look!

Steak Medallions with Ginger Asparagus Mushroom Saute [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | December 19

This is a really easy meal, but it’s more exciting than a simple steak and sweet potato dinner. Plus, it’s a great way to eat some different vegetables like asparagus and mushrooms that you might not get a chance to cook regularly. The ginger and parsley in this dish really help to add flavor and the small amount of cherry tomatoes and diced onions add a touch of sweetness to the dish without adding too many carbohydrates for those on a ketogenic diet.

If you’re on AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) or sensitive to nightshades, then just omit the small amount of cherry tomatoes in this recipe.

Tender and delicious beef stews don’t get much easier than this! And in the pressure cooker, you’ll be able to fix this dish up really quickly. You don’t need many ingredients for this recipe, and the only spices you’ll need are curry powder and garlic powder. I used zucchini and broccoli for this recipe to keep the carb count low, but you could use other vegetables instead if you prefer.

I used the Instant Pot to make this recipe, but you can use any pressure cooker.

Chicken and Bacon Sausages Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | December 5

These chicken bacon sausages are delicious as well as easy and quick to make. Plus, they fit the Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo autoimmue protocol) diets. Just omit the egg if you’re allergic to eggs or if you’re on AIP. If you’re ok eating eggs, then I highly recommend adding it in as it makes the sausages moister.

You can make these by baking the sausage patties, or if you have more time, you can pan-fry them in some coconut oil for an crisper outer texture and more browned flavor with a hint of coconut.

This Paleo sausage recipe is great for breakfast – you can make these sausages in advance and store them in the fridge and reheat each morning for a super quick and delicious meal to start your day. It’s nutritious and low in sugar/carbs so it’ll keep you energized until lunch.

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.
