Sweet potatoes are a nutritious and delicious addition to any meal, but it can get boring just baking or nuking a sweet potato to act as a side to your meal. So, we’ve put together a bunch of delicious Paleo sweet potato recipes to help you get more of this delicious root vegetable into your diet. We’ve also got some AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) sweet potato recipes here – just look for the [AIP] sign after the recipe name.

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.
I love it when people try this recipe and think it’s mashed potatoes. This amazing creamy Paleo side dish is made only from cauliflowers. Then by adding in coconut milk and ghee and blending it really really well, you can create a super creamy and delicious dish that will fool your family and friends.
If you’re not on AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol), then add in a bit of vanilla extract or use alcohol-free vanilla extract. The vanilla really adds to this creamy cauliflower mash recipe.
This dish is also great for those looking to lose weight but miss their mashed potatoes or those who have blood sugar issues as this creamy cauliflower mash recipe is very low in carbohydrates, and the fats in the dish also helps to not spike your blood sugar.
Personally, I think it just tastes amazing. Even just thinking about it makes me hungry!
These spinach basil chicken meatballs are delicious and healthy. It’s autoimmune protocol-friendly (AIP) and if you omit the sauce, they are also keto-friendly.
Plus, if you’re always trying to get yourself (or your kids perhaps) to eat more spinach, then this is a really easy and tasty way.
Serve for dinner or as an appetizer.
I was feeling a bit tired a few days ago and fearing that I had a cold coming down, I quickly made some nourishing Paleo chicken noodle soup. It’s just one of those foods that’s so comforting to eat!
Of course, instead of regular noodles, I used Paleo noodles – in this case zucchini noodles, which are really easy to make and taste really good in this soup.
There was a week of my life that I became addicted to coconut. In some memory I’ve now lost is the reason why I first used coconut cream on a watermelon radish. There’s most likely a starved human grabbing for anything in oral vicinity memory in a pensieve somewhere. Lemon was juiced on top of goat cheese and salted watermelon radish for mouthbliss already, so why not try lemon on coconut instead? So much mouth happiness came that day. Oh my creamy fresh wonders.

Cheese was one of the last foods I stopped eating after starting a Paleo diet – it was simply too hard to resist at first.
Luckily, I found cashew cheese as an easy and delicious replacement. Give it a try and pin the infographic below on how to make cashew cheese so you don’t forget – it’s super easy to make and has a nice creamy texture very much like cream cheese. In fact, it also looks very similar to cream cheese.
My favorite use for cashew cheese is in this recipe for bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cashew cheese.
I used to love bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cheese – we would always make them as an appetizer when guests came over. But since going Paleo, I’ve had to change the recipe to get rid of the regular dairy cheese. Instead, I’ve replaced it with this amazing cashew cheese.
For steps on how to make cashew cheese, take a look at this recipe.

One of my most popular recipes is my slow cooker bacon and chicken recipe, so I started thinking one day how else I could combine bacon and chicken into one delicious creation. And that’s how this recipe was born.
You might have already seen a version of this recipe that I guest posted on Mark’s Daily Apple, but here’s a version that’s even easier and completely AIP.
I call it Garlic Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites – super descriptive I know!
Eggplants can sometimes be a bit dull – they’re sort of soft, watery, and a bit tasteless. So, I thought I’d spruce them up a bit – especially when I caught sight of some heirloom eggplants (aubergines) that my mum had grown.
