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.

I love making one pot meals as they are fairly quick to make and give leftovers for a couple of days. This great meal can be made in about 1 hour and the leftovers taste great the next day too.

This casserole is rich in vegetables that have many vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

It is extremely delicious. Proof for this is that my whole family (husband and two kids) LOVES it.

This recipe is a modified version of one that Jana, one of our readers, sent in. As soon as I saw her recipe, I knew it was going to be a winner, and I asked her if I could try making it with some modifications and then share the recipe with everyone.

She very generously agreed, so here it is! Thanks Jana!

Chinese Petrale Sole Recipe with Ginger and Garlic

Paleo Chinese Petrale Sole with ginger and garlic

Petrale sole is a delicious fish that’s pretty cheap (we bought 3 for around $15 at Costco).

There’s not much debate between the various diets that fish is super nutritious and healthy, and I happen to love all seafood, so we often cook fish in our house.

Petrale sole is a fish I’ve eaten at restaurants before, but I’ve never tried to cook it until now.

It was remarkably easy and tasty, and here’s how to cook it.

Paleo Curried Chicken Salad Recipe

paleo curried chicken salad recipe

I really love chicken salad recipes, but my favorite are Paleo curried chicken salad recipes. Maybe I just have a soft spot for anything curry flavored.

Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for a really long time, but I kept putting it off because I didn’t want to the trouble of making Paleo mayo (it’s not that difficult, but it’s also not that easy).

So, when I heard about Primal Kitchen Mayo (ready-made Paleo mayo in a jar that’s created primarily with avocado oil – made by Primal Kitchen), I knew that the first recipe I was going to make would be this curried chicken salad! If you haven’t tried Primal Kitchen Mayo yet, it’s definitely a much easier way to go than creating mayo from scratch every time.
