My mother always called it Jewish penicillin, but the truth is that chicken soup is a traditional cold and flu remedy in many cultures around the world. It’s great for making use of leftover chicken and veggies, and for warming you up on a cold winter afternoon, but lets face it. The nostalgia of being taken care of by mom on a sick day is what keeps you coming back for more!
Marie is the face behind a French Paleo website called Influence Paleo. She does an amazing job of spreading Paleo movement and Paleo nutrition to the French community.
The French is well known for their excellent cuisine, so I was really excited when Marie agreed to share some of her French creations just in time for Christmas. Below is the gingerbread recipe, but there are also links to other ones (like her spicy orange clementine salad and marzipan recipe). Check them out!
This dish is like a dessert to me! It’s sweet, warm, soft, and buttery.
But it has zero added sugar, and the ghee and cinnamon in this recipe help to ensure your blood sugar doesn’t spike too much from eating the sweet potatoes and butternut squash (of course you might still want to avoid this dish if you have blood sugar issues).
Best of all, this recipe works even if you only have sweet potatoes or only have butternut squash!

Even though my heritage is Jewish, my family always celebrated “secular” Christmas with our family friends. We never took up the Jewish tradition of movies and dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and for good reason: we didn’t want to miss out on the food! Not to mention another opportunity to join around the table and celebrate the holiday season with our community. For me, that’s what Christmas is all about.
Kayla is a Canadian engineering student who is passionate about the Paleo and Primal lifestyles and creating delicious recipes. She shares them with the world at her blog, Cookie Monster Gone Primal.
Inspired by other Paleo pancake recipes, Kayla wanted to figure out how to make hers the best. She was after a dough that didn’t crumble and a low caloric-density. She made these with coconut flour as the base and ground flax seed as a healthy emulsifier. Also, she kept the eggs separate so that at the end, she could beat the egg whites into a foam to increase the fluffiness of the batter. Tasty!!

Salads are great, but without a good dressing, you’ve just got a pile of raw (well, occasionally cooked) veggies. I’m often appalled by what goes into those store-bought dressings, so I’ve made a habit out of making my own. Luckily several genius Paleo-friendly food bloggers have figured out how to turn those classic dressings like ranch and caesar into ones that we can all enjoy!
The following list also includes some delicious vinaigrettes and other types of dressings. Here are our favorite Paleo salad dressing recipes!
