Spicy Chicken Sauté tossed with Avocado Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | February 17

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).

Asian Garlic Beef Noodles Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

It’s also super flavorful – with garlic, ginger, and cilantro for seasoning.

For the noodles, you can use zucchini noodles, cucumber noodles, or shirataki noodles. For a full range of Paleo pasta options, check out this post here.

Basil Chicken Saute Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | January 25

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.

Enjoy this saute with some cauliflower white “rice” (recipe here) for a complete Asian meal!

Easy No-Cook Raw Veggie Deli Meat Wraps [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 20

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.

Easy Pressure Cooker Shredded Chicken Taco Meat Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 9

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!

Easy Fajitas Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 4

Fajitas are delicious, and if you eat them without the tortilla wraps, then they’re Paleo and Ketogenic.

Here’s a super easy fajitas recipe made with steak (you can use leftover steak you have at home or switch it for sliced chicken breast instead), onions, bell peppers, and some spices.

I love how quick this recipe is to make – you could be eating these easy fajitas recipe in just 20 minutes! And then top it with some delicious super fast guacamole for a wonderful meal complete with meats, veggies, and lots of healthy fats.

Mini Fish Cakes Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | January 2

Having gotten my parents interested in eating Paleo, my mum has been coming up with new recipes as well and this is one of her creations that has gotten a lot of praise from her friends.

If you’re only used to eating fish pan-seared, then seeing fish cooked in this way might shock you, but if you think of fish as a meat, then this recipe isn’t that different to a mini-meatloaf recipe.

Give it a try – it’s really easy to make and really delicious. Plus, these mini fish cakes are easy to store and pack for lunch or as a snack.

Keto Chicken Sandwich Recipe with Toasted Italian Grain-Free Bread [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | December 28

While this recipe requires a few more steps, it’s still remarkably easy to make and you could be eating this keto chicken sandwich in just 30 minutes or less (if you cook fast).

By cutting the chicken breast into thin pieces, it cooks much faster. And by coating the chicken pieces with garlic powder and paprika, the chicken as well as the grain-free bread has tons of flavor. (And the chicken slices are kept moist by coating it with an egg mixture.)

The Italian grain-free bread recipe is based on the Microwave Paleo Bread recipe, but I’ve added in some flavorful herbs like Italian seasoning and garlic powder to imbue the bread with more flavor. After the bread is cooked (which takes 5 minutes), it’s sliced and then toasted in the oven to give it a crisp exterior. If you’re in a hurry, then you don’t need to toast the bread before serving the sandwich.

Bifteck Hache (French Hamburgers) Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | December 26

Burgers without the bun can often seem unsatisfying, but these bifteck hache adds tons of flavor to the burgers by adding both thyme and onion to the meat mixture itself as well as a sauce to enjoy the burgers with.

For a quick and satisfying meal, give this simple Paleo and Ketogenic-friendly recipe a try.

I highly suggest cooking this dish with ghee as it adds that buttery flavor that’s delicious. And to give the sauce more flavor, you can also add extra chopped onions to it if you wish.

Steak Medallions with Ginger Asparagus Mushroom Saute [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | December 19

This is a really easy meal, but it’s more exciting than a simple steak and sweet potato dinner. Plus, it’s a great way to eat some different vegetables like asparagus and mushrooms that you might not get a chance to cook regularly. The ginger and parsley in this dish really help to add flavor and the small amount of cherry tomatoes and diced onions add a touch of sweetness to the dish without adding too many carbohydrates for those on a ketogenic diet.

If you’re on AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) or sensitive to nightshades, then just omit the small amount of cherry tomatoes in this recipe.

Chicken and Bacon Sausages Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | December 5

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.

Mini Spinach Meatloaves Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | November 28

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.

Pork Chops with Green Apple Radish Salsa [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | November 18

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.
