Best Paleo Zucchini Bread Recipes

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!!

Refreshing Mint Cucumber Melon Soup Recipe

REFRESHING mint cucumber melon soup

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.

How To Microwave Spaghetti Squash

How To Microwave Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is a fantastic grain-free noodle that’s super easy to cook. I love sloshing some Paleo sloppy joes on top of spaghetti squash.

What is Spaghetti Squash

According to Wikipedia, “spaghetti squash (Cucurbita pepo var. fastigata) (also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti) is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash.”

There are seeds in the middle (which you can roast to eat as a nice Paleo snack) and the “meat” of the squash is hard when raw (like all other squash), but falls apart into spaghetti-like strands.

Easy Paleo Roasted Vegetables Recipe

easy paleo roasted vegetables

I picked up a variety of mini and baby vegetables from Costco the other day – baby squash, mini peppers and little tomatoes. They turned out to be fantastic when roasted in the oven with olive oil and salt.  They taste great right out of the oven or even cold.

If finding these mini/baby vegetables is tough, you can just use regular Italian squash and regular bell peppers chopped into chunks.

Then just before serving, I like to sprinkle some freshly chopped basil leaves on top for extra flavor.

144 of the Best Paleo Crock Pot Recipes

A crock pot (a.k.a. slow cooker) is one of those things that, if you don’t have one, make you question why you would need yet another home kitchen appliance. Then once you have it, you can’t remember how you ever lived without it!

We all know that simmering is a key trick to achieving the maximum flavor absorption and perfect texture of whatever meat you happen to be cooking. With a crock pot, it doesn’t matter the cut– everything seems to come out soft and tender to perfection.
