Pan-fried scallops are delicious and you can enjoy them in a super quick salad recipe like this one. It’s Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) as well as super nutritious, low in calories and carbs. It makes a great appetizer or lunch!
2 large (or 5 small) scallops (which is approximately 30 grams) only have 26 calories, but they have 6.7 mcg (or 10% of your daily value) of selenium, which has huge antioxidant benefits. That same amount of scallops also contains 8% of your daily value of vitamin B12.

Adobo is considered to be (unofficially) the Philippines’ national dish.
Although the word adobo comes originally from the Spanish word ‘adobar’, which means to marinade, the recipe dates back to before the Philippines was colonized by the Spanish.
Chicken or pork was marinated in salt and vinegar as a means of preservation. The meat was then cooked in the marinade. Later on, Chinese traders introduced soy sauce which replaced salt in the dish.
Nowadays, there are tons of different ways adobo is prepared. You can add potatoes, chicken gizzard, and chicken liver to it. Some people even add pineapple, coconut milk, or turmeric to the dish.
You can also use vegetables instead of meat like water spinach, or seafood if you want. The possibilities for this dish are endless, so I hope you enjoy playing around with the recipe.
Chicken adobo is usually served with rice, but for a Paleo or Keto version, try it with cauliflower rice instead.
This chicken adobo recipe is a reasonably traditional version (except it’s made in the slow cooker and then served on top of cauliflower rice). Enjoy it for a delicious and easy Paleo or Ketogenic meal.
The flavors in this Asian sesame beef salad are amazing. There’s sesame oil, sesame seeds, and tamari sauce all adding tons of deliciousness into this simple salad. And it’s quick to make – you can get this on the table in under 30 minutes from start to finish.
This spicy chicken sauté is really easy and quick to make. And then you toss it with some ripe avocado pieces at the end to create a colorful and delicious dinner that’s filled with healthy fats.
The main ingredient for this recipe is chicken breast, which you dice and then sauté with spices like chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder.
The avocado and green bell pepper pieces go into the dish after the sauté is done (along with olive oil, mustard, salt and pepper to keep the dish flavorful and moist). If you want the dish to be extra spicy, you can use diced jalapenos or chili peppers instead of green bell peppers. You’ll end up with a filling and nutritious meal that’s suitable for a Paleo and ketogenic diet.
And if you don’t have these exact ingredients, you can use different ingredients (e.g., ham instead of turkey, other fruits instead of berries, and other salad greens instead of arugula leaves).
One of the best things about many asian recipes is how quick they are to make.
Take this garlic beef noodles recipe for example. You can cook it up in under 30 minutes for dinner.
It’s also super flavorful – with garlic, ginger, and cilantro for seasoning.
If you’ve been to Thailand or enjoy Thai food then you probably recognize this recipe already as it’s a popular dish often enjoyed at lunch. And that’s because sautes (or stir-fries) are fast and easy to make and really delicious to enjoy.
So, if you’re looking for a super quick recipe to eat for lunch or dinner, then give this basil chicken saute a try.
You can make basil chicken saute naturally Paleo and Ketogenic by using gluten-free tamari sauce instead of regular soy sauce (check out this post about tamari sauce to see why it’s better than soy sauce). And for an AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) version of this dish, use coconut aminos instead of the tamari sauce and omit the peppers to keep this dish nightshade-free.
These deli wraps are super easy to make and will help you get more raw vegetables into your Paleo or Ketogenic diet.
You don’t need to do any cooking for this dish, and since everyone will be making their own wraps, they can pick and choose what they want to add in. You can also change the vegetables to use whatever is available near you. I suggest adding in the avocado (or use guacamole) for some creaminess and healthy fats and also the chopped parsley for a slight herb flavor.
This dish is fantastic for summer evenings when you’re too tired to cook. All that’s required is a bit of chopping. If you don’t have a good chef’s knife for chopping vegetables, then I highly suggest getting one (like this one) as it will make chopping vegetables so much easier and less frustrating.
You can use any type of deli meat as the wrap (although a thicker slice will help hold the vegetables in the wrap more easily) – I used some ham for this recipe, but turkey or chicken will also work well. If you’re wondering whether deli meat is healthy or whether deli meat is Paleo, then check out this article. Try to find higher quality deli meat without added sugar.
For the sauces, I used some Paleo mayo and some mustard. You can make your own Paleo mayo using coconut oil following this mayo recipe here or you can purchase avocado mayo from Amazon here. The main thing is to try not to eat much seed oils, and most mayonnaise is made from seed oils like canola and sunflower, which are typically rancid.

Indian food is so flavorful. But it’s often too tempting to order garlic naan or rice when you eat out. Plus, you don’t really know if they added sugar or MSG to your curry or cooked your chicken in canola oil.
Cooking your own ketogenic Indian food is much healthier and can be just as delicious. Many curry recipes use tomatoes, which can increase the net carb count of the dish. So if you’re looking to limit your carb intake more strictly, then consider decreasing the amount of tomatoes the recipe asks for.
We’ve created this list of ketogenic Indian recipes to help you pick healthy and delicious dishes to make for dinner. This list has a lot of different recipes – some are more authentically or traditionally Indian than others.
We generally suggest you stay dairy-free when you go keto as many people don’t react well to dairy even if they’ve been eating it for their whole life. However, traditionally, Indian recipes have a lot of dairy in them. If a recipe does contain dairy ingredients, we’ve labeled it as such and included non-dairy substitutions.

This super easy pressure cooker shredded chicken recipe will make your dinner preparations a breeze! All you’ve got to do is throw the ingredients into the pressure cooker pot and press cook!
If you don’t have a pressure cooker yet, then I highly recommend getting one (like this Instant Pot I have) as it’ll make creating tender meats really easy (and fast). While I still love my slow cooker, I have to admit that the pressure cooker saves me a ton of time because it’s so much faster. It means that if I forget to put things into the slow cooker earlier, I can be saved by my pressure cooker.
Give this recipe a try and you’ll see just how easy using your pressure cooker to make dinner can be!
This beef stew recipe (of Russian origin) is now so popular that many different variations have been invented. Major chefs (including Betty Crocker and Jamie Oliver) have all put their stamp on this traditional dish.
For those of you unfamiliar with this dish, it originally consisted of sauteed strips (or cubes) of beef topped with a mustard sauce and a small amount of sour cream.
Nowadays, beef strogranoff (or stroganov) often also contains onions and mushrooms in its sauce and is served over pasta or rice.
While this dish is not typically considered Paleo (because of the sour cream, flour that is used to dust the beef pieces, and the pasta/rice it’s served with), it is fairly easy to Paleo-ify.
So, below we’ve found 13 delicious Paleo beef stroganoff recipes for you to enjoy.
