I was more than a bit skeptical when Jeremy announced that adding guacamole to his scrambled eggs was his new favorite breakfast dish, but when I tried it, I had to admit, it was surprisingly delicious!
I’ve been low on time this past week, and so I started creating 10 minute meals (start to finish) like this one.
Of course, if you have more time or energy, then go for the more complicated dishes, but if you’re looking for some super super fast and easy (and cheap) Paleo meals, then keep reading.
If you think garlic butter tastes good, then you’ll love garlic ghee too! This is a really simple and delicious way to cook fresh fish filets. I love it with cod, but you can use this recipe with other fish too, like haddock or tilapia.
This is the AIP (autoimmunne-friendly) version of the regular breaded fish recipe (posted here). This recipe is nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, but it still tastes great. I used cod here, but you can use other types of fish instead.
Enjoy with the garlic ghee sauce – it’s tasty, really easy to make, and highly nutritious! This is a great way to get more fish into your diet.
This is a simple green beans recipe – I boil the green beans first to soften them to decrease the cook time. And if you prefer, the bacon can be omitted.
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…
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!
(Even if you don’t eat much fish, give this recipe a try. It’s really really good especially with the garlic ghee!) And an AIP version of this recipe will be posted here soon.
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.
Spiralized noodles, Zoodles, or oodles of fun! Whatever you want call them, noodles made from zucchini (and the spiralizers that create them) are quite possibly the best things to happen to grain-free pasta lovers since, well, ever.
If you haven’t gotten in on the craze, now might be the perfect time to discover it! To help you, here are 39 delicious Paleo zucchini noodle recipes from some of our favorite Paleo (and Primal) bloggers.
I was recently talking to a friend about how she stays healthy and manages to avoid junk food most nights when she comes home from work. She said, “My husband and I usually just make hearty salads topped with fish or chicken.”
Why I Used To Hate Steak
I used to hate steak. At first, it was just because I didn’t like things that had blood coming out, and then once I got over that hump, it was because I was too scared to cook steak. Steak is often expensive, and I was terrified that I would ruin it.
Finally, I decided to take a chance and try cooking steak (using the pan-frying method). It was easy!
Maybe my steaks don’t taste quite as juicy as Gordon Ramsay’s, but I still love it.
My Simple Way of Cooking Steak
My simple way of cooking steak is to salt it before hand, then heat a frying pan with lots of ghee in it. Then carefully put the steak in, cook it for 3 minutes on high heat, then flip it and cook it for another 3 minutes on high heat. Then I’ll gently feel the steak with a spatula to see how firm or soft it is. Usually, it’s about medium rare at this point, and I cook it for 1-2 minutes longer to get it to medium. After cooking, I rest the steak on a plate for 5 minutes (some of the blood and juices will flow out) and then serve it.
Note – this is for a thin steak (for a thicker steak, it’s much better to stick it into the oven for a few minutes on 450-500F after pan-frying it on high heat for 30-60 seconds on each side).
My Easy Paleo Steak Salad Recipe
There are plenty of ways of eating steak, but salads are always delicious (and I love how easy they are too). So, here’s my easy Paleo steak salad recipe with some peaches fried in coconut oil. (If you omit the ghee and cook with coconut oil, then it’s AIP compliant too.)
