Following up on last week’s Paleo zucchini noodles post, I thought I’d share some great Paleo-friendly pesto recipes this week in case you love it on pasta as much as I do.

This vegetarian soup is delicious and healthy. It has vitamins, minerals and fiber. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and good for the immune system and also adds a subtle spicy quality to the soup. The coconut milk makes it rich and creamy without any need for cream or other dairy. Try it tonight!
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.

Marie is the face behind a French Paleo website called Influence Paleo. She does an amazing job of spreading Paleo movement and Paleo nutrition to the French community.
The French is well known for their excellent cuisine, so I was really excited when Marie agreed to share some of her French creations just in time for Christmas. Below is the gingerbread recipe, but there are also links to other ones (like her spicy orange clementine salad and marzipan recipe). Check them out!
This dish is like a dessert to me! It’s sweet, warm, soft, and buttery.
But it has zero added sugar, and the ghee and cinnamon in this recipe help to ensure your blood sugar doesn’t spike too much from eating the sweet potatoes and butternut squash (of course you might still want to avoid this dish if you have blood sugar issues).
Best of all, this recipe works even if you only have sweet potatoes or only have butternut squash!
Ah pizza, your favorite treat for a birthday party, slumber party, after party, any occasion really…
There are tons of options for Paleo pizza and our favorite bloggers have all the best ideas. Also for Primal people who allow a bit of cheese in their diet, we have a ton of great Primal pizza recipe ideas as well. Check it out!
Coleslaw is really easy to make and a great side dish!
One of the main issues of enjoying Paleo coleslaw is the mayo in coleslaw (most store-bought mayo uses canola oil). Of course you can make your own Paleo mayo (recipe here), but it’s sometimes too much of a hassle or you may be on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and can’t eat eggs.
That’s when this easy no-mayo coleslaw recipe comes in handy.
This easy recipe is fantastic as a snack, dessert, or appetizer.
I used to love blue cheese, and dates filled with blue cheese are amazing. Since going off dairy, I’ve been using cashew cream instead. If you’re not familiar with cashew cream, it’s really easy to make and almost tastes like a very mild soft cheese.
Pancakes seem to be an American breakfast tradition, so having just become an official US citizen, I thought I’d make these to celebrate.
This Paleo chocolate pancake recipe is a modified version of the coconut pancake recipe here. And if you’re looking for an even simpler Paleo pancake recipe, then check out the 2-ingredient pancake recipe here.
If you haven’t yet heard of Paleo zucchini bread, you may be living under a rock (or in a cave – Paleo pun intended). Zucchini is the perfect addition to Paleo bread that makes it softer, moister, and increases the healthy factor.
And don’t be discouraged if you don’t like the flavor of zucchinis; it blends in perfectly and enhances the other flavors and ingredients, giving the texture a boost in the process. So try one (or all 20) of these amazing Paleo zucchini bread recipes now!!
I got a Thermomix over a year ago as a wedding gift from some family in Vancouver, and I’ve only just opened the box to use it!
Quite a few readers have emailed me about recipes using the Thermomix as well (if you are in the US, then you probably haven’t come across the Thermomix so read below to find out about it, but it’s become very popular in Australia, Germany, Canada, and Taiwan among other places).
I’ve got quite a lot of kitchen equipment, and so I wasn’t sure what the Thermomix would add. I was quite wrong apparently, and I found it fantastic to use to make soups (although if you have a Vitamix or Blendtec, then those work just as well for this purpose). The blender is very powerful and making soups and mash is easy with this.
