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...]
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
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:
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).

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!
It’s been really chilly in Scotland over the past few days (supposedly this is pretty typical for Scottish summers!), and so I thought some nice warm soup would be perfect.
Bread is one of the hardest things for many people to give up when starting a Paleo diet. Did you know that you can make your own Paleo bread recipes at home?
I’ve compiled this long list of fantastic Paleo bread recipes, so if you’re craving a sandwich or just a slice of toast, look no further. There’s even sourdough bread!

This is a super nutritious and very low-sugar recipe – perfect for breakfast (or lunch or dinner)! You can prepare it in advance (and store in the fridge) and pop into the oven in the morning for a fresh breakfast. Or, you can make the whole thing and store it in the fridge for whenever you’re hungry (it lasts 3 days in the fridge).
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.
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.
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).
The first time I made oxtail stew, it turned out not that great. It was a similar recipe to the one below, but I put all the ingredients into the slow cooker. And it came out all watery and not very flavorful. I had given up on oxtail stews until my friend in London made me some delicious oxtail stew in the slow cooker!
So what did she do differently? Just that she cooked the oxtail in the slow cooker first and then made the stew after so there was no watery, flavorless stew. Instead, it was rich, powerful, and really delicious!
I’m a huge fan of cooking in bulk, and I’ve written about my 3 step system to ensuring you always have Paleo food available (that post is here).
So, in this post, I wanted to give you a quick and delicious example of how to cook 3 meals super fast using slow cooker pork + 3 other easy meals to add some variation (so, lunch and dinner for 3-4 days or dinner for a whole week)!
I’m here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, and salmon is one of the popular local foods here. While I struggled to find smoked salmon in the US, it’s really easy to get it in the throughout UK, and it’s delicious.
If you haven’t ever had smoked salmon before, it’s basically something you eat straight out of the packaging (no need to cook). It tastes like salmon but with a salty, smoky flavor, and its texture is that of raw fish (a bit drier than sashimi-grade). When you buy it, it’s often already sliced into thin slices (thinner than sashimi salmon).
As a child, I was initially terrified of eating smoked salmon (I was terrified of eating anything “raw”), and it took my quite a while before I started to enjoy smoked salmon. Now, I love it!
There’s nothing more amazing than the taste of fresh vegetables (and bacon, of course!). One of my favorite vegetables right now is Brussels sprouts – they’re sort of funky with a very unique taste. But they’re really easy to make, and quite filling too.
Plus Brussels sprouts are pretty nutritious. Just 1 cup of Brussels sprouts (raw) contains 125% of your daily value of vitamin C (so you can stop drinking all that orange juice!).
So, here’s another delicious Paleo Brussels sprouts recipe (and there’s 3 more Paleo Brussels sprouts recipes here, here, and here). This recipe below is fantastic as an easy side dish or as a snack if you’re hungry during the day!
They posted one of their delicious recipes (Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread) from The Paleo Kitchen here a few months ago, and I know a lot of people emailed me because they loved the recipe. So, I went and tested one of their recipes for dinner last night. It was one of the really easy ones (because I’m currently limited to the stuff they sell in a Tesco Express – a tiny supermarket in Edinburgh).
