Spinach and Pancetta Saute Recipe

paleo spinach pancetta saute recipe

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...]

Paleo Chicken Liver Pate Recipe – from the Zenbelly Cookbook

paleo chicken liver pate recipe from The Zenbelly cookbook by Simone Miller

Simone Miller from Zenbelly catering is releasing her first cookbook on August 12th, and below is one of the amazing recipes from The Zenbelly Cookbook (you can read my review of the book here).

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.

Super Fast Paleo Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe

paleo easy smoked salmon salad recipe

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!

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs by The Paleo Kitchen

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs from The Paleo Kitchen

I’ve been a fan of George’s (Civilized Caveman Cooking) and Juli’s (PaleOMG) sites for a long time, and so I was really excited when they decided to work together on a cookbook, The Paleo Kitchen.

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).

Paleo Shabu Shabu Beef Dinner Recipe

paleo beef shabu shabu recipe

I’m a big fan of Shabu Shabu – it’s basically boiling thin slices of meat in a pot of broth and then eating it with a sauce (often made from soy sauce, garlic, peppers). There are variations on shabu shabu as well – in Chinese cuisine, this is often called hot pot. And in French cuisine, fondue is a version of this.

A ton of restaurants serve this type of cuisine, and they’re pretty paleo! I often go to shabu shabu and ask for no broth (because I can’t be sure what they put into the broth most times) with thin slices of beef, lamb, and vegetables. If you’re worried about soy sauce, then take your own gluten free tamari sauce to the restaurant (that’s what I do!).

So, this recipe is all about making a super quick shabu shabu beef dinner at home. Because the meat is thinly sliced, it cooks really fast!

Paleo Sashimi Salad Recipe

Paleo Sashimi Salad Recipe

I love visiting Asian supermarkets, because you get to see so many great fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafoods!

In Vancouver, there’s a ton of Asian supermarkets and a ton of seafood, so sashimi seemed like a great option to pick up at my local H-Mart. Since you don’t have to cook anything, this paleo sashimi salad with kale and mangos is super fast to make. It’s fantastic as an appetizer or a quick lunch.

Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry Recipe

Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry Recipe

I’ve been living for the past month mostly on this tropical island off the southern coast of China called Hainan. I know I’m super lucky!

It’s been a bit tougher doing Paleo out here because all the ingredients are different, and I don’t have hardly any cooking supplies! I just have 2 electric cookers (one is on the ground!) and a microwave.

Since I’m unable to cook many of my usual recipes, I’ve been experimenting some with the local produce and creating some new ones. This Ginger Apple Celtuce Paleo Stir Fry recipe is one of my favorite creations. It’s also paleo autoimmune friendly (omit the chili from the recipe – that was how I made this dish initially actually). If you don’t know what Celtuce is (also known as asparagus lettuce), then check out my post about it here (you can find it in many Chinese supermarkets around the world).

How to Make Paleo Bread Crumbs

How to Make Paleo Bread Crumbs

Sometimes you just need bread crumbs for a recipe, and that can be tough when you’re trying to stick to a Paleo diet.

That was the case when I was making meatloaf. If you don’t use bread crumbs in this meatloaf recipe, it’d just be this dense chunk of meat (not very tasty!).

So, how do you make Paleo bread crumbs fast?
