Creamy Asparagus Mash Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | September 28

This is a great side recipe in case you’re bored with sweet potato mash or cauliflower mash and want something a bit lighter and more refreshing.

It’s really easy to make, but you should blanch your asparagus shoots before pureeing it and saute the onions for a sweeter flavor. Blanching the asparagus and adding in the lemon juice will also give you a bright green color and a fresher taste.

This recipe is Paleo as well as low carb/keto-friendly, and AIP (autoimmune-friendly). So it’s great to serve as a side dish when you have family or friends with different diets.

Coconut Oil Baked Spaghetti Squash Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | September 26

If you’re not familiar with spaghetti squash, it’s a melon-looking yellow squash that naturally forms golden spaghetti-like strands when cooked.

They’re Paleo, AIP-friendly, and low in carbohydrates (so Ketogenic-friendly as well). Because of the buzz about them in the US media, spaghetti squash can now be found in a lot of US grocery stores (including Whole Foods, Costco, and Walmart – they vary by location).

Net Carbohydrates in Spaghetti Squash

Per 100 grams of spaghetti squash, there is approximately 5.5 grams of net carbohydrates (7 g carbohydrates, 1.5 g fiber, 2.8 g sugar).

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is super easy to cook – you can microwave them using these instructions here or bake them in the oven following the instructions below. You can also roast the leftover seeds from inside the squash to enjoy like pumpkin seeds.

Garlic Ghee Baked Chicken Breast Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

I had some leftover chicken breast from making another dish, and I was looking for an easy recipe to make.

So, if you like moist and tender chicken breast, then give this recipe a try! It’s such an easy recipe, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried it before. Plus, this recipe is AIP-friendly, Keto-friendly, as well as Paleo.

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!
