I often forget just how refreshing and delicious peaches are, and they are fantastic in smoothies like this one. The avocado and nuts in this recipe also add in more fat to slow the absorption of the sugars. And if you want to add in some extra protein after your workout, choose a whey protein powder that doesn’t have added ingredients like this one.
“Everybody loves banana nut muffins.”
LOL – that’s what Jeremy said when I asked him what he liked about them. So, with that, how could you fail to enjoy this healthier version that’s made with delicious spices and sweetened with a tad of raw honey as well as the bananas.
Enjoy these Paleo banana nut muffins warm for a soft muffin texture with a nutty crunch. Personally, I like them with a cup of black tea for an afternoon snack.
I know some of you are into CrossFit, HIIT, Spartan racing, weight-lifting, and various other intense forms of exercise – so I came up with this raw egg shake especially for you – it’s packed with protein, fat, a small amount of carbohydrates, and a dash of caffeine (which you can omit if you prefer).
As always, when making anything with raw eggs, be careful of food safety – I would wash the egg shells and then wash my hands after cracking the eggs. I would also make sure to use very fresh eggs, and I wouldn’t use any cracked or dirty eggs. I know I’m a bit of a freak when it comes to food safety, but I really hate food poisoning so that little bit of extra effort seems worth it to me.
This is another recipe that my dad especially enjoys. It’s lightly sweetened with stevia and has a great flavor to it with the unsweetened cacao powder and unsweetened shredded coconut. When it first comes out of the oven, it’s pretty soft still, but you can let it dry out for longer by leaving it in the oven at a very low temperature or just by sitting it out. Or don’t bother waiting and just enjoy immediately.
There’s also some chia seeds in this recipe to help everything gel together better.
This paleo smoothie is seriously delicious. Enjoy for an easy and fast breakfast or brunch meal. I like adding coconut oil to the smoothie to help slow the digestion of the sugars in the fruits and carrots. Coconut oil will also help you to stay full for longer.
Persimmons are one of those fruits that always fascinate people and yet scare them at the same time. Persimmons are pretty but “unknown” and therefore “unapproachable.” I’m going to change that!
I was lucky enough to have been introduced to the wonders of the persimmon fruit at an early age, but for most of my life, I was confused by when it was ripe, why they came in different shapes, and how best to eat them.
Then, a couple months ago, I was in my mother’s kitchen, which was full of all the fresh produce that she’d grown in her garden this year. And among all that fresh produce were more than a few persimmons.
I decided, despite my uncertainty, that I just had to do something awesome with the baskets of fruit sitting in the kitchen, including all those persimmons! I stared at them for a while, Googled to see what other people had done, and then created this recipe, which turned out to be way more delicious and much easier than I anticipated.
Most of the confusion and fear about persimmons stems (no pun intended) from the fact there are 2 main types of persimmons: fuyu and hachiya. Actually, there are many more varieties, but those are the two types you’ll find in your grocery store.
And because nature really likes to play tricks on us, fuyu and hachiya persimmons look fairly similar (to the uninitiated like me), but they are actually very different in texture and in determining ripeness.
These gummies are great as a healthy dessert or snack. They’re made from gelatin, which is one of the great components of bone broth, and eating these gummies are an easy way to get more gelatin into your diet.
This pound cake never ceases to WOW. It’s just so much like real pound cake.
The secret ingredient is a tiny amount of whey protein powder, which is just one of the proteins purified from milk. Most concerns with whey protein powder stem from the fact that many brands are packed with artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors, so I suggest buying a pure one like this one from Amazon.
These make for a fantastic savory Paleo breakfast. And what’s even better is you can make these muffins in advance and heat one or two up in the morning as a quick meal. Or take them with you as a snack.
I used lemon thyme as the herb in this Paleo breakfast muffin recipe, but you can switch that with another herb of your choice – rosemary, Italian seasoning, chili pepper flakes could all work well.
This breakfast muffin recipe is also ketogenic-friendly and low carb, so it’s a great way to start your day.
My friend was telling about an amazing vietnamese avocado shake and so I had to look it up and make one!
Sinh To Bo is a pretty easy, but it is traditionally made with sweetened condensed milk, making it not very Paleo or healthy.
My Paleo version of this delicious drink cuts down on the sugar and uses coconut milk instead. I hope you enjoy it!
These miniature cookies are a bit tricky if you don’t get the ingredient proportions just right (because you’re relying on the coconut oil and the honey to hold everything together). But apart from that, these are super easy and delicious!
Oh, and they take 10 minutes to make and then 15 minutes in the fridge (while you relax).
I was shocked many years ago when I visited China and found that KFC was famous there for their egg tarts! (I have to admit that I tried them, and they were really really good.) So, here’s my Paleo version of the egg custard tart with an almond crust and coconut egg custard. The almond crust makes it a bit crumbly and this version is not as sweet as the traditional ones.
If you’re a fan of smoothies, but not a fan of eating meat, then this is a great recipe for getting more protein into your diet. The raw egg makes the smoothie super creamy (it’s as if you added in cream!).
The idea for this recipe came to me after seeing Mark’s Primal Egg Coffee which uses raw egg yolks to make coffee creamy and nutritious.
Note: Always make sure your eggs are fresh!
This delicious Paleo doughnut recipe is from Elizabeth Barbone’s new book, World’s Easiest Paleo Baking. (You can read our review of the book here). Her book is filled with absolutely amazing Paleo desserts, breads, and snacks, and all of them are really simple to make. So, if you’re looking to do some baking with Paleo flours, then check out this new cookbook – you can get the book from Amazon here.
It always seems so sexy (or perhaps just European) to finish a meal off with some coffee. So, these coffee-flavored coconut pots de crème seemed perfect.
