Pan-fried scallops are delicious and you can enjoy them in a super quick salad recipe like this one. It’s Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) as well as super nutritious, low in calories and carbs. It makes a great appetizer or lunch!
2 large (or 5 small) scallops (which is approximately 30 grams) only have 26 calories, but they have 6.7 mcg (or 10% of your daily value) of selenium, which has huge antioxidant benefits. That same amount of scallops also contains 8% of your daily value of vitamin B12.
Chia puddings are so easy to create but they make tasty and super cute pots of deliciousness. The chia seeds expand when they’re in liquid so that you end up with a gooey gel-like dessert after a few hours. They’re perfect for when you have guests over for dinner as you can make them in advance and just bring them out from the fridge when you’re ready to serve.
There are tons of different flavors you can add to chia puddings, and this variation uses fresh strawberries and a small bit of orange peel to flavor it. And if you use stevia to sweeten it instead of raw honey or maple syrup, then you’ll end up with a ketogenic-friendly dessert as well as a Paleo dessert!
These wraps take just 5 minutes to put together so you can also make these for an egg-free breakfast or brunch or as a quick snack.
Enjoy this delicious chocolate smoothie recipe for a fast and nutritious Paleo and Ketogenic breakfast. I used stevia as the sweetener in this recipe and the cinnamon helps to hide the stevia aftertaste.
If you’re not trying to stay low carb or ketogenic, then you can add some raw honey into the recipe (the raw honey also helps to cover the stevia taste).
Enjoy this recipe in no time at all!
I got the idea for this salad recipe after trying a smoked salmon baked potato dish at Vertigo Cafe in Lisbon.
Philip, the owner of Vertigo, introduced me to the wonders of pink peppercorns as a delicious flavoring.
They taste so different to the regular black peppercorns you might be used to. Instead, pink peppercorns taste fruity and slightly sweet. But they’re still crunchy and fragrant.
And they go amazingly well with smoked salmon!
The flavors in this Asian sesame beef salad are amazing. There’s sesame oil, sesame seeds, and tamari sauce all adding tons of deliciousness into this simple salad. And it’s quick to make – you can get this on the table in under 30 minutes from start to finish.
Parfaits are traditionally a cold dessert made from cream, eggs, and fruits. But you can make a dairy-free, Paleo, AIP, and Keto dessert by using a few simple ingredients like coconut yogurt.
Make sure to use an unsweetened coconut yogurt if you’re staying Ketogenic.
If you can’t find coconut yogurt, then you can make it easily yourself. Also, if you’re AIP, you’ll probably want to make your own coconut yogurt to ensure all the ingredients are AIP-friendly. Here’s a slow cooker recipe for making coconut yogurt. Here’s a recipe that uses the Instant Pot. And here’s one using a yogurt maker.
Alternatively, you can use coconut cream instead of coconut yogurt, but I find coconut cream is a bit too rich usually.
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).
I’ve recently fallen in love with pink peppercorns!
If you haven’t tried them before, they’re not spicy like black peppercorns. They’re lightly peppery, fruity, and almost a bit sweet. They also add a touch of crunch to the salad recipe.
That means they can make a boring salad suddenly come alive. While fresh tomatoes and avocados and extra virgin olive oil all have their own beautiful and delicate flavors, the pink peppercorns add a whole new dimension to the dish.
One of the best things about many asian recipes is how quick they are to make.
Take this garlic beef noodles recipe for example. You can cook it up in under 30 minutes for dinner.
It’s also super flavorful – with garlic, ginger, and cilantro for seasoning.
