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.
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.
When you’re sticking to an AIP diet (Paleo autoimmune protocol), you want to spend your time and energy healing your body rather than cooking all day long. That’s why the crockpot (slow cooker) is an essential device! In fact, if you’re cooking for the entire family, then we suggest you get two slow cookers so you cook multiple dishes at the same time!
If you already have a crockpot, then these AIP crockpot recipes will help you save time in the kitchen. Many of the recipes are just throw into the pot and leave until dinner time recipes, but we’ve also got AIP crockpot desserts and veggie side dishes too. So check out the table of contents below and jump straight to whatever dish you want to get started with today.
And, as always, you can also download this entire list of AIP crockpot recipes by clicking on the green button below:
We love getting more seafood into our diet, and adding in tuna is a super easy way since it’s so readily available in cans. This tuna salad recipe is Paleo and Ketogenic (as well as low carb).

This recipe is super easy to make – it takes under 10 minutes from start to eat. So, it’s great for lunch or dinner or as a quick snack.
We’ve been going a bit crazy for canned sardines lately. We’re in Lisbon, a city that has been called “city of sardines”, and there are tons of amazing sardines.
Our favorite is this brand called Pinhais – in fact you can see several cans of them on our table there! They’re the most expensive sardines I’ve seen here (over $5 per can for their special limited edition one), but they are definitely worth it! Their sardines are more tender than the others I’ve tried here (and I’ve tried quite a few already). Unfortunately, it’s tough to get any of these brands in the US, so I guess it’s a good reason to visit Portugal. However, in the US, you can get quite a few good ones on Amazon – like this Wild Planet Wild Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
And if you’re worried about mercury levels in fish (then rest assured that sardines are low in mercury and high in omega-3s).
During the hot summer months, it can be a hassle to have to do any cooking. So here are some super easy Paleo no-cook dinner recipes for you to enjoy without heating up the house.

We all know that seafood is super healthy for us, but it’s often hard to get more of it into our diets.
Unless you’re used to cooking and eating fish and shellfish, they can seem very foreign and weird. Their texture is odd and their taste is even odder.
But, please give seafood a chance. Try making them once than just once and try different Paleo seafood recipes. It’s crazy just how nutritious and delicious they are!
And if you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), then it’s even more important for you to get more nutrient-dense foods like seafood into your diet.
So, this recipe is both Paleo and AIP, and it’s full of great seafood. If you have trouble finding mussels (look for them canned or frozen as well as fresh), then use shrimp, cockles, or crab meat instead. Then, to make this dish even more nutritious without any effort, we recommend adding some canned sardines on top.
We’ve been scouring the internet for the best ketogenic crockpot recipes, and this giant list is the culmination of our hard work. All the recipes are Paleo, low-carb, keto, and can be made in your favorite crockpot or slow cooker.
One of the toughest things about any diet is sticking to it, and the easier your meal prep is, the more likely you won’t fall off the wagon. That’s why meals cooked in the crockpot (AKA slow cooker) is one of our favorite recommendations for those starting a ketogenic diet. Prep time is usually super fast (many recipes require you just to dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker), and then you can leave the slow cooker to do its thing while you go to work, go to sleep, or go play with your kids. Your house will be filled with delicious aromas when you return. And your plate will be filled with nutritious tender meats and/or vegetables.

Or click on the green button below and we’ll email you this entire list of ketogenic crockpot recipes as an interactive PDFa.
Just one word of caution before you get started. The amount of carbohydrates each person can eat on a ketogenic diet and still stay in nutritional ketosis will vary. So, while some people may be able to eat an apple and still stay in ketosis, other people won’t. So, please experiment and see what your tolerance levels are. Many of the recipes contain ingredients like onions, tomatoes, carrots that are fairly low in carbs, but if you eat too much of them, they could still kick some people out of ketosis. If you need to stay lower in carbs, then pick recipes that don’t include those ingredients or else decease the amount you add into the recipe.
