49 of The Best Paleo Chili Recipes

Best Paleo Chili Recipes

I was always mystified by chili – that warm and spicy Tex-Mex stew that seemed to have plenty of unrecognizable bits and bobs floating about in a spicy tomato soup sauce.

I couldn’t believe it the first time my friend’s mom showed us (the morning of a Big Game Day of course) just how easy it was! Using tomatoes, spices and your choice of filling, customizing a dish to your liking–or based on what you’ve got in the cupboard–just doesn’t get more straight-forward than this.

And I know what you’re thinking. Chili without the beans? What’s a Paleo eater to do? Behold the best bean-less chili recipes this side of the border!

Paleo BBQ Brisket Recipe [Slow Cooker/Crockpot]

paleo bbq brisket recipe in the slow cooker (crockpot)

I love putting my crockpot to work while I sleep (it’s not even my crockpot as my friend Fiona lent it to me for the summer in Edinburgh) – I think there’s a sense of satisfaction that magical things are working to create my meal while I do nothing.

Maybe it’s just me, but effortless meals like this Paleo Slowcooker BBQ Brisket always seem to taste more delicious because of the lack of sweat and tears involved in preparing the meal!

AIP Coffee – Review of Roasted Chicory Root Coffee

aip coffee substitute roasted chicory root

One of the questions I get asked the most about the autoimmune Paleo protocol (AIP) is what can I drink if I can’t have coffee?

Coffee has become so entrenched in our habits that we’ve become addicted not only to the daily dose of caffeine it offers us but also to that aromatic smell that wakes our senses every morning. So, what do you do if you’re starting AIP and have to forgo coffee for 30-60 days if not longer?

A reader emailed me about chicory root coffee a while back, but I didn’t see it for sale until a few weeks ago. So, I decided to give this naturally non-caffeinated AIP-compliant “coffee” substitute a try.

Spinach and Pancetta Saute Recipe

paleo spinach pancetta saute recipe

One of the benefits of being back in the UK is the ability to pick up cheap tea, pate, and even pancetta in local small grocery stores. Apparently pancetta is an essential ingredient in the UK! But if you can’t find pancetta easily, then just use bacon instead for this recipe. [Read more...]

Join Our Fast and Easy Recipes – Paleo Link Party!

Fast & Easy Paleo Recipes Link Party

At the end of a long day it can be tempting to succumb to a lazy fast food fix rather than stick to Paleo.

That’s why we are inviting all of our blogger friends to take part in our Fast & Easy Paleo Recipes Link Party!

Fast and Easy Paleo Recipes

Bloggers, to be part of the link party, all recipes must contain only Paleo-friendly ingredients and take less than 30 mins from start to finish. The simpler, the better!

What’s a Link Party?

If you’re new to link parties, these are special days when we invite all members of the blogging community to share links of their recipe posts on our site.

It’s referred to as a party because everyone can participate and have a great time and we guarantee you’ll feel more connected to the online Paleo community.

Why Link Parties Help Everyone!

There are a lot of people looking for easy, fast, and delicious Paleo recipes, so this is a fantastic way for you to share your recipes directly with the people looking for them. We send out a link to the list of recipes you submit to our entire email list (over 15,000 people) and on social media every week.

As a blogger, you’ll gain exposure to a larger audience without doing hardly anything – just sharing a link – plus you’ll gain a comment from at least one fellow blogger, and the chance to be featured on the front page of our blog.

Paleo Link Party Theme

All the best parties have a theme, so our theme for this series of link parties is Fast & Easy Paleo Recipes (under 30 minutes).

Link Party Rules

1. The recipe you post must be Paleo (here’s a list of Paleo foods and this article explains what Paleo is) and must take 30 minutes or less to make.

2. You’ll need a photo of the recipe which will act as the link to your recipe (it must not link to your homepage) from our page – the nicer it looks, the more visitors you’ll get!

3. Link-back to this site from your post. This is really easy to do – you can use one of the badges below if you’d like by just cutting and pasting the code above it:

Fast and Easy Paleo Recipes

Fast and Easy Paleo Recipes

4. THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF ALL! You must visit the person’s blog who linked up directly before you and leave a motivating comment. This is a vital part of this linkup!

As many of you know, the Paleo community is amazing (and it’s one of the best parts of Paleo, apart from the food!), so please do this step so that we can keep encouraging each other and strengthen our fantastic community even more.

5. Please note that entries not following the above rules will be deleted (we’ll try to nudge you if you’re forgetting to do something).


Make sure to add the URL of your post (rather than the URL of your home page), the name of the recipe (rather than your own name) and your email address (which won’t be published) below. Then choose which image you’d like to use (you’ll automatically be offered a selection of images from your blog to choose from).


Questions About Our Paleo Link Party?

If you have any questions about the link party, please email

The Next Paleo Link Party Date:

Our first link party will start at 11am EST on Tuesday August 26th (you’ll have until 11am EST on Friday 29th to finish submitting links). We will post the link here when the party is live!

The Key to Making Paleo Chocolate Truffles – with Devin Plaut from Laughing Fox Chocolates

the key to making paleo chocolate truffles with devin plaut

One of my biggest weaknesses is chocolate. This probably started off during childhood…

I lived a few miles away from the Cadbury’s chocolate factory (which some claim is similar to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory), and ended up eating quite a lot of Cadbury’s chocolates. (The original story by Roald Dahl was partially inspired by Cadbury’s.)

But this post is not about me or my chocolates. This post is all about Devin Plaut and his drive to make delicious Paleo chocolate truffles.

Paleo Chicken Liver Pate Recipe – from the Zenbelly Cookbook

paleo chicken liver pate recipe from The Zenbelly cookbook by Simone Miller

Simone Miller from Zenbelly catering is releasing her first cookbook on August 12th, and below is one of the amazing recipes from The Zenbelly Cookbook (you can read my review of the book here).

Liver is a really nutritious Paleo food, and pate is a great way to get more liver into your diet – it’s flavorful and easy to make. It’s great for spreading onto some Paleo crackers (recipe also in Simone’s book!), or if you’re too lazy to make Paleo crackers (like me), you can just eat it straight! It’s also very filling.

Paleo Mini Meatloaf Recipes

Regular (large-size or regular loaf-size) Paleo meatloaves are delicious and easy to make, so if you’re not already making Paleo meatloaves for dinner, then you should get started.

But Paleo mini meatloaves are also fantastic. They can be a fantastic snack that you can take with you on the go, a great appetizer to impress your family and guests, or a fun way to get kids to eat vegetables and organ meats.

So, here are some of our favorite Paleo Mini Meatloaf Recipes (sometimes they’re also called Paleo Meatloaf Muffin Recipes or Paleo Meatloaf Cupcake Recipes, or sometimes something completely different too, like the first two recipes on our list).
