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.

Continuing with our obsession with canned sardines, this recipe is another super easy and quick way to eat sardines! Treat it as an alternative to a tuna salad – you can pack these for lunch or spread them on top of some 5-minute Paleo bread for a quick sandwich or on top of some cucumber slices for a party snack.
If you’re unfamiliar with canned sardines, they’re cheap, easy to eat, and highly nutritious. Just remember to use sardines that are packed in olive oil (and not vegetable or seed oils), like these Wild Planet sardines.
I’ve learnt a lot from being Paleo, and one of the main lessons is how to make lattes Paleo very quickly by swapping regular milk with coconut milk and changing the sweetener to a Paleo sweetener.
So, to make this delicious matcha green tea latte, I added in coconut milk and just omitted the sweetener (although you can add one in if you prefer). It’s a really easy recipe!

Sometimes you just want a smoothie for breakfast, but most smoothies recipes are laden with juice or bananas, so we scoured the internet for some ketogenic smoothie recipes. That way, you can enjoy a quick and nutritious breakfast while staying in ketosis.
As always, different people can take different amounts of carbs in their ketogenic diet, so if you find that you need to take in fewer carbs, then skip the smoothie recipes with cherries and berries (or use less in those recipes).

Smoothie bowls are all the rage on Instagram – they definitely make pretty photos that fit well in a square frame!
But if you’re not caught up on this craze, then you might be wondering what is a smoothie bowl and how you can create your own version of one.
So, in this post, we’ll go over what is a smoothie bowl (hint, the name is a dead giveaway) as well as show you step by step how to create your own and what toppings to add for the best results. (We’ll also tell you two big mistakes to avoid when making your smoothie bowl.)
This ketogenic smoothie bowl is filled with amazing superfood ingredients – like matcha powder, goji berries, chia seeds, and more. Plus, it’s completely sugar-free, dairy-free (and nut-free) and low in carbohydrates so you can enjoy it on a ketogenic diet as well as a Paleo (or any other low carb diet).
First, let me introduce some of these amazing ingredients to you:
We love good smoothies, and these Paleo avocado smoothie recipes are amazing. Avocados are not only a great source of healthy fats, but they can add a ton of creaminess to your smoothie too. No need to use milk or cream for avocado smoothies (although if you are dairy-tolerant, then we do have some Primal avocado smoothie recipes below too).
If you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), then we also have some great AIP avocado smoothie recipes below – just look for the [AIP] tag at the end of the recipe names.
Why do we love smoothies so much?
Paleo smoothies are fast and easy to make, so you can drink a nutritious breakfast in just 5 minutes. They’re also a simple way to eat more green leafy vegetables and healthy fats (like those in avocados). You just dump them into the blender and then drink.

These Paleo and Keto chocolate coconut cups are so easy to make you’ll be wondering why you haven’t been making these your whole life! Keep a stash of these in your fridge and you’ll never run out of healthy and delicious snacks when you’re hungry. And in case you’re wondering, yes this is a keto fat bomb dessert!
If you dislike using stevia, then add in 1 tablespoon of raw honey instead (you can also use a mixture of both stevia and raw honey to have a sweeter dessert without too many extra carbs).
Another substitution that can be made if you’re not on a ketogenic or sugar-free diet is to see semi-sweet chocolate on top of the coconut cups rather than 100% dark chocolate.
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.
The ability to make perfect hard boiled eggs in an Instant Pot is one of the many reasons why we love this device.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Instant Pot, it’s basically an electronic pressure cooker with some additional settings (like a steaming option and also a rice cooker option).
You just plug it in, put your food into the pot and then choose one of the settings (or there’s a manual setting as well). As with all pressure cookers, you have to be careful when letting out the steam – there’s a little switch that allows steam to come out. You close that switch when it’s cooking, and when it’s done, you carefully open it (make sure you keep your hand out of the way to avoid burning it in the hot steam). Once the steam comes out (it only takes 1-2 minutes), the pressure in the pot and outside will be equal and you can open the lid and take out your food.

It’s hard to resist these chocolate almond fat bombs – they melt in your mouth like a chocolate truffle and fill you up with fantastic fats. And of course, they taste amazing! So give this Paleo and Keto fat bomb recipe a try. (For more info about a Ketogenic diet, click here).
Each chocolate almond fat bomb is then decorated by topping each one with an almond. If you’re not a fan of stevia, then use a bit of raw honey in this recipe instead (or use a mix of stevia and raw honey so you can still keep the flavor great but the carb count low).
Just make sure to store these in the fridge as they will melt quickly at room temperature.

These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.
Next time you’re going to a party and want to bring some desserts to impress the guests with, try taking these gorgeous layered peppermint patties – you’ll feel like a skilled chef rather than a home cook with these!
If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.
If you’re diabetic or on a ketogenic diet, then it can be tough to find desserts to eat. That’s where this delicious almond butter fudge recipe comes in. It’s not only Paleo, but also Ketogenic (low carb and diabetic-friendly).
This fudge is sweetened with stevia, but you can omit sweeteners if you want or use other sweeteners of your choice. We think stevia is generally the best sugar-free option, but check that your stevia is pure and doesn’t contain other ingredients. If you’re not trying to stay sugar-free, then coconut sugar or maple syrup are good options for sweetening this fudge recipe.

Who says you can make pasta on a Paleo diet! There are tons of different ways to cook pasta on Paleo, and I’ve tried this recipe with both shirataki noodles and with cucumber noodles. You can also use spaghetti squash, kelp noodles, or shredded zucchinis.
So, if you don’t have much time for dinner, then give this easy Paleo spaghetti recipe a try – it’s also low carb and keto-friendly!
