Jeremy and I recently visited France – it was an absolutely amazing trip filled with good food and even more excellent wine.
One of my favorite French dishes is duck confit, and it takes so long to make that I’ve never had the patience to make it myself (so I end up ordering it in restaurants whenever I see it on the menu). That’s why I got so excited when I saw ready-cooked duck confit being sold in Costco!
It was so easy to grill it at home and serve it on a bed of greens. If you spot it in Costco, I highly recommend getting it for an easy and delicious quick meal.
I eat a fair number of eggs – it’s a super fast and easy breakfast (especially with a few strips of bacon). But I’ve always had trouble making perfect over easy eggs (which is how I like them) until Jeremy’s mom taught me this simple trick!
My mum’s plum tree went crazy this year, and we had plums everywhere. If you open the fridge, there’s a whole bucket full of juicy plums, and if you walk outside, you have to be careful not to squish any plums that rolled onto the ground!
So, to help her eat her delicious plums, I’ve been devising new recipes using them.
This plum infused iced tea is superb for the summer months – plus it’s simple and gives a nice twist to your typical iced teas.
Cheese was one of the last foods I stopped eating after starting a Paleo diet – it was simply too hard to resist at first.
Luckily, I found cashew cheese as an easy and delicious replacement. Give it a try and pin the infographic below on how to make cashew cheese so you don’t forget – it’s super easy to make and has a nice creamy texture very much like cream cheese. In fact, it also looks very similar to cream cheese.
My favorite use for cashew cheese is in this recipe for bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cashew cheese.
This is such an easy recipe, but it’s such a great snack! Even though I used 100% chocolate in this recipe, it’s still delicious. All 42 chocolate covered pecan halves went super fast.
I’ve been low on time this past week, and so I started creating 10 minute meals (start to finish) like this one.
Of course, if you have more time or energy, then go for the more complicated dishes, but if you’re looking for some super super fast and easy (and cheap) Paleo meals, then keep reading.
One of my most popular recipes is my slow cooker bacon and chicken recipe, so I started thinking one day how else I could combine bacon and chicken into one delicious creation. And that’s how this recipe was born.
You might have already seen a version of this recipe that I guest posted on Mark’s Daily Apple, but here’s a version that’s even easier and completely AIP.
I call it Garlic Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites – super descriptive I know!
I was frying some eggs one day and pondering what to eat with my fried eggs when I saw some avocados in our fruit bowl.
I’d once come across a recipe for grilled avocados, so somehow my brain connected some dots and went:
Why not fry some avocado slices in coconut oil!
Cashew flour is a great gluten-free, grain-free flour that can be used in place of other nut flours when baking or cooking.
You can purchase cashew flour from Trader Joe’s (review of it here) or you can get it on Amazon here, but it’s also super easy (and often cheaper) to make your own at home, and this post will show you just how easy it is (plus there’s a list of Paleo recipes using cashew flour at the bottom of this post)!
This is the AIP (autoimmunne-friendly) version of the regular breaded fish recipe (posted here). This recipe is nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, but it still tastes great. I used cod here, but you can use other types of fish instead.
Enjoy with the garlic ghee sauce – it’s tasty, really easy to make, and highly nutritious! This is a great way to get more fish into your diet.
