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.
We always need more recipes for the ketogenic diet. It’s hard to find recipes that don’t dump huge amounts of sugar or other carbohydrates into the dish, so we’ve scoured the web for some of the best low carb, keto recipes. We’ve put them into categories so you can find the recipes you want quickly and easily.
From breakfast, to desserts, to drinks and snacks…take a look around and see which keto recipes you want to try! (Plus, all the recipes are Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free except for butter/ghee so you can stay healthy and in ketosis!)
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.
Bone broth is one of our favorite drinks! It’s nourishing, warming, filling, and absolutely delicious.
But the first few times you try making bone broth, it can be really daunting. How much bones do you need? What type of bones? How long should you cook it for? Is it gelatinous enough? Can you reuse the bones?
We’ve tried to make it easier for you by finding 15 unique and delicious bone broth recipes below that you can follow step-by-step to produce this delicious elixir.

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 love bone broth, and I often make it in my slow cooker – I usually go for a really really simple bone broth recipe (like this one) and then add in spices when I drink it or add in vegetables and herbs when I make soups with it.
But you can also make flavored bone broth directly by adding in vegetables to the slow cooker so that all those delicious flavors cook into the bone broth. One of my favorite additions to bone broth is ginger and carrots. They add a delicious and warming flavor to the broth (the flavor is very delicate and not overwhelming).
One of the easiest and most nutritious breakfasts you can eat is eggs with avocado. But to make it more interesting, why not give this easy baked egg in avocado recipe a try – you have to cook the eggs in some way anyway, so why not cook it in the avocado!
You might love this recipe so much that it becomes your regular breakfast dish (plus it’s so easy to make)! In addition, it’s Paleo and ketogenic (low carb) so you’ll be getting lots of healthy fats without the sugar that’s loaded in many breakfast recipes. This dish will keep you energized throughout your morning.
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 love guacamole, but sometimes it can be time-consuming to chop up all the vegetables to put into it – like the tomatoes, onions, and peppers. So, here’s a super easy guacamole recipe that you can use to make great tasting guacamole in less than 5 minutes.
This guacamole is great to use as a dip or to add on top of meat dishes as a sauce or side dish. Or for a really easy breakfast, serve this guacamole with some scrambled eggs. This is also an AIP guacamole recipe if you omit the optional chili powder from the dish. So you can serve this guacamole even to those on the Paleo autoimmune protocol.
I drink tea pretty much every single day of my life, and while I love good black tea with a dose of coconut milk the most, I do often also enjoy a good no-caffeine herbal tea.
Mint tea has been one of my favorite herbal teas for a while, and I especially like making it with fresh mint leaves.
But this tea adds in fresh chamomile flowers in addition to mint leaves to make it a relaxing as well as refreshing herbal tea.
Tabouli (also called tabbouleh) is a light side dish (mezze) popular in Middle Eastern cuisines. It’s traditionally made using bulgur (a type of whole grain) or couscous along with tomatoes, parsley, mint, olive oil, lemon juice, and onion.
In this dish, I’ve replaced the grains (bulgur or couscous) with raw cauliflower florets that have been food processed into small pieces. This produces a texture that’s similar to couscous in texture and look. But I’ve kept most of the other traditional ingredients to produce a similar flavor.
This dish is Paleo as well as low carb (ketogenic). It’s a great side dish to serve to help you eat more raw vegetables.
To make an AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) version of this cauliflower tabouli salad that’s nightshade-free, just switch the diced tomatoes for diced beets. If you have trouble find beets, then radishes can be used instead.
I still recall the first time I heard about cauliflower rice. A friend of mine who knew I had gone Paleo sent me Nom Nom Paleo’s cauliflower rice recipe. I was so intrigued, I just had to give it a try. And then I promptly fell in love with cauliflower rice!
This recipe here for cauliflower white rice is the most basic form of cauliflower rice. So if you master this, you can then get creative and make your own versions of flavorful cauliflower rice. Or you can just stick to this simple dish and use it to pair with stews, curries, and stir-fries.
