Louise Hendon | October 14

Chinese takeout is probably not what you naturally associate with Paleo food, but Chinese food can actually be made very healthy. First, Chinese cuisine is full of stir-fries (which are just meat and/or veggies cooked together).

Pressure Cooker Beet Cabbage Apple Stew Recipe [Paleo, AIP]

Louise Hendon | October 7

It’s no secret that I love fast and easy cooking methods, and the pressure cooker (or Instant Pot) is definitely a great appliance to have around when you want to make dinner in a hurry.

And since this recipe is meat-free, it actually takes even less time to cook than other stews. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, then don’t worry, you can also make this beet cabbage apple stew recipe in a large pot on the stove (it just takes a bit longer and a bit more effort in making sure the liquid doesn’t run out in the pot).

You can make this recipe as an entree or as a side dish for your meal. The beets and apples add a slightly sweetness to the dish that really compliments the cabbage. I suggest using chicken broth as the base for this stew, but if you don’t have any or if you can’t find any that’s Paleo or AIP-friendly, then water also works fine.

AIP Bread Rolls Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Egg-Free, Nut-Free]

Louise Hendon | October 5

If you’re on an AIP diet or a ketogenic diet, then having good bread is tough! So if you’re looking for a low carbohydrate egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free bread recipe that’s AIP and Ketogenic, then this AIP bread rolls recipe is what you’re looking for!

Because this recipe uses a gelatin egg instead of a regular egg to hold the coconut flour together, you will find that it has a different texture to regular bread. The coconut flour also makes the bread a bit denser and drier, so enjoy it with some extra coconut oil or with some ghee (if you’re ok with ghee in your diet).

Lemon Garlic Baked Shrimp Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | October 3

If you enjoy shrimp, then give this simple recipe a try. It’s Paleo and low carb/Ketogenic. The sauce that comes with this recipe is a lemon garlic ghee sauce that is really easy to make. The shrimp is dipped in the sauce and then the dish is served with extra sauce.

If you haven’t tried it before, lemon, garlic, and ghee goes really well together, so make sure to keep some of the sauce to serve with.

If you’d prefer not to bake the skewers, you can also grill the vegetables and the shrimp. Personally, I find firing up the grill a bit of a hassle, so I prefer to use the oven. Also, feel free to use whatever vegetables you have available instead of the ones I used for this recipe.

If you’re on the AIP diet (Paleo autoimmune protocol), then use coconut oil instead of ghee and omit the black pepper and bell peppers (opt for some other AIP vegetables instead).

Coconut Oil Baked Spaghetti Squash Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | September 26

If you’re not familiar with spaghetti squash, it’s a melon-looking yellow squash that naturally forms golden spaghetti-like strands when cooked.

They’re Paleo, AIP-friendly, and low in carbohydrates (so Ketogenic-friendly as well). Because of the buzz about them in the US media, spaghetti squash can now be found in a lot of US grocery stores (including Whole Foods, Costco, and Walmart – they vary by location).

Net Carbohydrates in Spaghetti Squash

Per 100 grams of spaghetti squash, there is approximately 5.5 grams of net carbohydrates (7 g carbohydrates, 1.5 g fiber, 2.8 g sugar).

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is super easy to cook – you can microwave them using these instructions here or bake them in the oven following the instructions below. You can also roast the leftover seeds from inside the squash to enjoy like pumpkin seeds.

Garlic Ghee Baked Chicken Breast Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | September 23

I had some leftover chicken breast from making another dish, and I was looking for an easy recipe to make. Since I regularly make my salmon by wrapping it in aluminum foil and baking it in the oven (the foil keeps the salmon super moist), I figured there was no reason why this method wouldn’t also work for chicken breast.

So, if you like moist and tender chicken breast, then give this recipe a try! It’s such an easy recipe, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried it before. Plus, this recipe is AIP-friendly, Keto-friendly, as well as Paleo.

It’s super fast because the beef and the zucchini are chopped into thin strips so that they cook quickly, and it’s delicious because the garlic, cilantro, and gluten-free tamari soy sauce (use coconut aminos instead of tamari sauce if you’re on AIP) add tons of flavor to this dish .

This recipe is AIP-friendly, Ketogenic, as well as Paleo. It uses easy-to-find ingredients, and it takes just 15 minutes to make.

Easy BBQ Jackfruit Saute Recipe [Paleo, Vegan]

Louise Hendon | September 6

Jackfruit has been all the rage in the US so I had to give it a try and see what it was all about!

The whole phenomena started because someone discovered that young jackfruit could be used as a meat-substitute in that it formed meat-like shreds and could soak up flavors from the sauces it’s cooked in. This makes it great for dishes like this one which is similar to BBQ pulled “pork.”  There’s also a version of this recipe for the slow cooker if you prefer cooking that way (see below).

If you want to find out more about jackfruit (what it is and its nutritional value), then check out this extensive article on jackfruit.

Garlic Oregano Olive Tapenade Recipe [Paleo, AIP, Keto]

Louise Hendon | August 29

I was looking for an easy sauce to mix with my paleo pasta (I used shredded zucchini), and this easy but flavorful olive tapenade recipe came to mind.

It’s super quick to make and involves no-cooking from start to finish. And for the protein, I used some nutritious canned sardines packed in olive oil, but you can also top your pasta with some pan-fried chicken or pan-fried fish.

This easy olive tapenade recipe is also great no matter which diet you’re on – it’s Paleo, AIP-friendly, and suitable for a low-carb/high fat or ketogenic diet.

Mango Coconut Curried Chicken Salad Recipe [Paleo]

Louise Hendon | August 26

I’ve always loved curried chicken salads. There’s something about the flavor of curry powder that just goes so well with chicken. But it also needs a touch of sweetness, which the mangoes and blueberries in this recipe provides.

And for the crunch, I added in some pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut. The slight crunch that the pumpkin seeds add is really necessary!

The creaminess to this chicken salad recipe is simply from coconut cream. It goes so well with the curry flavor!

How do you eat this curried chicken salad? Personally, I found it went really well with some butternut squash that I roasted in the oven (butternut squash and curry powder go well together!). But you can also just eat this with a green salad or by itself.

For another version of a more traditional curried chicken salad recipe, check out this recipe made with Paleo mayo, cashews, raisins, and celery.

15-Minute Tamari Marinated Steak Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | August 22

A good steak salad can be delicious! This super quick and easy steak salad recipe was inspired by a dish I found at a local cafe. I loved the crunchy vegetables in the salad as well as the flavorful steak meat that had been marinated in soy sauce.

As many of you know, I love fast and easy recipes, and grilling or pan-frying steak is super fast so this steak salad recipe takes hardly any time to put together. I went for some nice and crunchy vegetables like peppers and radishes, but you can use whatever veggies you have at home.
