Louise Hendon | August 24

Good healthy desserts are hard to come by! But this one is delicious and good for you – it’s full of great fats from coconut, dipped in chocolate, and sweetened only with stevia. If you prefer to use a different sweetener, then please feel free – raw honey is a great option if you’re not keto/low-carb.

15-Minute Tamari Marinated Steak Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | August 22

A good steak salad can be delicious! This super quick and easy steak salad recipe was inspired by a dish I found at a local cafe. I loved the crunchy vegetables in the salad as well as the flavorful steak meat that had been marinated in soy sauce.

As many of you know, I love fast and easy recipes, and grilling or pan-frying steak is super fast so this steak salad recipe takes hardly any time to put together. I went for some nice and crunchy vegetables like peppers and radishes, but you can use whatever veggies you have at home.

5-Min Prosciutto Avocado Fat Bomb Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | August 12

I’m always looking for fast, easy, and delicious snack recipes, and this one just popped into my head one day as I opened my fridge and stared at a pack of prosciutto and several avocados.

They make a really quick and easy snack (these prosciutto avocado fat bombs take only 5 minutes to make, look pretty to serve, and are suitable for a Paleo or Keto diet).

5-Minute Sardines Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | August 8

We’ve been going a bit crazy for canned sardines lately. We’re in Lisbon, a city that has been called “city of sardines”, and there are tons of amazing sardines.

sardines in lisbon - a paleo food

Our favorite is this brand called Pinhais – in fact you can see several cans of them on our table there!  They’re the most expensive sardines I’ve seen here (over $5 per can for their special limited edition one), but they are definitely worth it!  Their sardines are more tender than the others I’ve tried here (and I’ve tried quite a few already).  Unfortunately, it’s tough to get any of these brands in the US, so I guess it’s a good reason to visit Portugal. However, in the US, you can get quite a few good ones on Amazon – like this Wild Planet Wild Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the health benefits of sardines, then check out these 2 articles (here and here).

And if you’re worried about mercury levels in fish (then rest assured that sardines are low in mercury and high in omega-3s).

65 Healing AIP Smoothie Recipes [Autoimmune-Friendly, Paleo]

Louise Hendon | August 1

Breakfast is one of the toughest meals on any diet because you want something quick and easy but also delicious and filling to start your day. Luckily smoothies fit that bill perfectly. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 65 AIP smoothie recipes to help you heal your body but also enjoy your food.

If you’re not familiar with the AIP diet, then AIP stands for Paleo Autoimmune Protocol and you can read more about that diet here. So, there are no dairy ingredients, eggs, nuts or seeds, or any nightshades in these recipes.

Quick Note about Vanilla on AIP

One of the gray area ingredients for the AIP diet is vanilla. While vanilla beans are ok for most people, store-bought vanilla extract typically contains alcohol as well as other ingredients. The general advice is that if you’re cooking (i.e. heating) the vanilla extract, then you’ll be burning off most of the alcohol so it shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you’re using vanilla extract in a recipe that isn’t heated, then you should use alcohol-free vanilla extract instead. Since that’s hard to find, we suggest either omitting the vanilla, using a tiny bit of the seeds scrapped from the inside of a vanilla pod or else try this pure vanilla powder.

If you’re concerned about reacting to vanilla in any way, then for these AIP smoothie recipes, you can omit vanilla when it’s called for in the recipe. It will change the flavor though.

Quick Note about Fruits on AIP

While fruits are allowed on the AIP diet, it’s best not to overeat them. Smoothies can be easy to gorge yourself on as they have lots of natural sweetness and honey or maple syrup is often added to them as well. Just be aware of how much fruit you’re consuming each day, and try to limit it.

Avocado Cucumber Ginger Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | July 27

This is a super simple salad for summer. The cucumber and ginger make it really refreshing, and the avocado adds in some extra healthy fats.

This recipe can be a side dish or a quick snack. It takes 5-minutes to make, and you can use your leftover cucumber and avocado from making another dish (like this tuna salad recipe).

We find this recipe tastes better with sesame oil (and in case you’re wondering if sesame oil is Paleo, check out this article), but you can also use olive oil instead.
