Tender and delicious beef stews don’t get much easier than this! And in the pressure cooker, you’ll be able to fix this dish up really quickly. You don’t need many ingredients for this recipe, and the only spices you’ll need are curry powder and garlic powder. I used zucchini and broccoli for this recipe to keep the carb count low, but you could use other vegetables instead if you prefer.
These chicken bacon sausages are delicious as well as easy and quick to make. Plus, they fit the Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo autoimmue protocol) diets. Just omit the egg if you’re allergic to eggs or if you’re on AIP. If you’re ok eating eggs, then I highly recommend adding it in as it makes the sausages moister.
You can make these by baking the sausage patties, or if you have more time, you can pan-fry them in some coconut oil for an crisper outer texture and more browned flavor with a hint of coconut.
This Paleo sausage recipe is great for breakfast – you can make these sausages in advance and store them in the fridge and reheat each morning for a super quick and delicious meal to start your day. It’s nutritious and low in sugar/carbs so it’ll keep you energized until lunch.
I actually wasn’t sure if I should call these mini spinach meatloaves or spinach egg muffins as they’re partially both. There’s both beef and pork (as well as veggies) in them but also eggs to hold everything together well.
Whatever you choose to call these, they make a really nutritious and filling snack if you’re hungry. They can also make a great breakfast, packed lunch, or dinner! They’re easy to make (you do need a muffin tray though) and easy to eat. Plus, they’re low in carbs and suitable for both a Paleo and Ketogenic diet.
You can make these mini spinach meatloaves in advance and keep them in the fridge for a few days to eat so you don’t have to be cooking every day.
I’ve always enjoyed the combination of pork and apples – the sweetness from the apple complements the pork flavor and the slight acidity from the fruit helps to cut through the fat in the meat.
In this dish, I’ve created a simple green apple radish salsa using green apples, water radishes, and ginger to go with some easy pan-fried pork chops. I also served the pork with some mustard for additional flavor.
You can use any cut of pork if you don’t have pork chops available. Pork tenderloin or pork loin steaks also works really well with this salsa. I wanted a really easy and quick dinner so I used a thin pork chop steak that is common in Europe. If you want to learn how to pan-fry pork tenderloin, then check out this recipe here.
Perhaps what’s best about this recipe is that it’s Paleo, Ketogenic (low carb), and AIP-friendly (just omit the mustard I suggest serving the pork with). So you can enjoy this easy and quick dinner recipe no matter what your dietary restrictions are.
This is a really easy and quick dinner to prepare using easy to find ingredients like Italian seasoning, eggs, tomatoes, and chicken breast. Make this Tuscan chicken pasta dish on days when you don’t have much time to cook.
This yummy Paleo and Ketogenic-friendly spaghetti squash bolognese recipe is easy to cook and makes a great dinner for the whole family. It’s gluten-free and uses spaghetti squash instead of regular wheat spaghetti for the “pasta.” (For other Paleo pasta options, check out this post, 9 Types of Paleo Pasta.)
You can also change the meat in this recipe for ground turkey or chicken if you prefer (although those meats are typically lower in fat which might not be desirable if you’re on a high fat ketogenic diet).
Make sure to add in the freshly minced garlic and diced basil leaves as they really give the dish a ton of flavor. And adding in those ingredients toward the end of the recipe makes those flavors stay in the dish better.
The instructions below tell you how to cook your spaghetti squash in the microwave (full instructions with step-by-step photos here). But if you’d prefer to cook the spaghetti squash in the oven, then follow this recipe here for Coconut Oil Baked Spaghetti Squash.
This Paleo and Ketogenic Asian chicken wraps recipe is super easy and quick to make. What makes this dish so delicious is the tahini tamari sauce that you add into the wraps (don’t worry, the sauce isn’t hard to make at all!).
If you’re unfamiliar with tahini, it’s just sesame seeds toasted and then ground into a thick paste. It tastes and has a texture similar to unsalted pure peanut butter or almond butter. Tahini has been used in cuisines like Greek, Lebanese, North African, and Israeli for centuries (a 13th century Arabic cookbook references tahini as an ingredient). It’s fairly easy to find tahini in the US – you can get it in many specialty food markets, Whole Foods, or online on Amazon.com here.
Tamari may be another ingredient that you haven’t come across, but it’s a type of soy sauce that’s produced through the natural fermentation of soy beans. You’ll often find that tamari sauce is gluten-free whereas regular soy sauce adds in wheat as an ingredient. Tamari sauce is considered a bit more flavorful than regular soy sauce, which taste just salty. When you buy tamari sauce, make sure to look out for ones that don’t have wheat as an ingredient like this brand here. For more info about tamari sauce, check out our post, Is Tamari Sauce Paleo?.
I’ve been loving salads, and if you have fresh produce readily available then I highly suggest enjoying delicious salads for lunch or dinner. They’re so quick and easy to put together, and if you use a combination of some fruits, meats, and salad greens, then you can get a delicious and healthy Paleo salad recipe.
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). Then there are rice and noodle dishes, which can be made Paleo fairly easily by using zucchini noodles and cauliflower rice. If you don’t believe me about just how good Paleo Chinese recipes can be, then give the ones below a try!
We’ve divided this long list of recipes into several categories in the table of contents below to make it easier for you to find the recipes you want. Just click on one of the categories to jump straight to the Paleo Chinese recipes you want to try.
First, a quick note about some ingredients used in Paleo Chinese recipes. There are several seasoning ingredients commonly used in Chinese cuisine that are not considered Paleo, e.g., MSG, soy sauce, black bean sauces, oyster sauce. However, below are some key ingredients used in Chinese food that are considered Paleo-friendly and which you can purchase on Amazon.com:

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.
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).
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 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).
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).
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.
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.
If you’re looking for a fast and nutritious dinner, then this is a great recipe for you! 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 .
