How To Make Cashew Flour At Home

How To Make Cashew Flour At Home

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)!

Sydney is the cook and writer behind the blog Paleoptimistic as well as the @paleoptimistic Instagram and Twitter accounts. She strives to put an optimistic spin on life whether it be teaching Spinning® classes or concocting something yummy in the kitchen. She started Paleo with her fiancé to help him conquer his Crohn’s Disease (which is currently in remission thanks to Paleo!), as well as to help them both treat their ADHD without medication. For more inspiration and motivation on following a healthy lifestyle, check out Sydney’s blog (paleoptimistic.com) and follow her on Instagram and Twitter (@paleoptimistic)!

This Paleo barbacoa recipe is simply divine – you can make this barbacoa recipe with venison, which is what Sydney used, or you can use another meat of your choice (Chipotle serves a beef barbacoa)!

There is also a recipe below for a sweet potato rice side dish, and she recommends serving the barbacoa with the sweet potato rice, some sauteed vegetables, and some guacamole.

Paleo and AIP Chicken Salad Recipe With Grapes, Apple, and Celery

AIP CHICKEN SALAD RECIPE

I’ve always loved chicken salad recipes – you can make a large batch and store them easily in the fridge. And they’re great as a quick snack, a side dish, or even an entire meal if you’re hungry!

But most chicken salad recipes involve mayo (recipe here), which is not only a hassle to make on a Paleo diet but also isn’t AIP-friendly if you have autoimmune issues (read more about AIP here and get the AIP Food List here).

And onto this AIP chicken salad recipe…

How To Make Ghee In Slow Cooker

how to make ghee in slow cooker

What Is Ghee?

Ghee is clarified butter (i.e., the oil that’s left after removing the milk solids from butter). Ghee is very commonly used in Indian cooking, but you’ll also find many French chefs using clarified butter.

And if you want to know more about the benefits of ghee, then check out our article here.

If making your own ghee is too much hassle, then I highly recommend this delicious brand made with grass-fed butter and cultured so that pretty much all the lactose and casein is removed.

How To Make Ghee In Slow Cooker

It’s pretty simple and quick, and you can make ghee yourself in the slow cooker (or crockpot) in a couple of hours. If you don’t have a slow cooker or crockpot, then you can use a regular pot on a stove (I recommend one with high sides to minimize the splattering).
