If you’ve been to Thailand or enjoy Thai food then you probably recognize this recipe already as it’s a popular dish often enjoyed at lunch. And that’s because sautes (or stir-fries) are fast and easy to make and really delicious to enjoy.
So, if you’re looking for a super quick recipe to eat for lunch or dinner, then give this basil chicken saute a try.
You can make basil chicken saute naturally Paleo and Ketogenic by using gluten-free tamari sauce instead of regular soy sauce (check out this post about tamari sauce to see why it’s better than soy sauce). And for an AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol) version of this dish, use coconut aminos instead of the tamari sauce and omit the peppers to keep this dish nightshade-free.
These deli wraps are super easy to make and will help you get more raw vegetables into your Paleo or Ketogenic diet.
You don’t need to do any cooking for this dish, and since everyone will be making their own wraps, they can pick and choose what they want to add in. You can also change the vegetables to use whatever is available near you. I suggest adding in the avocado (or use guacamole) for some creaminess and healthy fats and also the chopped parsley for a slight herb flavor.
This dish is fantastic for summer evenings when you’re too tired to cook. All that’s required is a bit of chopping. If you don’t have a good chef’s knife for chopping vegetables, then I highly suggest getting one (like this one) as it will make chopping vegetables so much easier and less frustrating.
You can use any type of deli meat as the wrap (although a thicker slice will help hold the vegetables in the wrap more easily) – I used some ham for this recipe, but turkey or chicken will also work well. If you’re wondering whether deli meat is healthy or whether deli meat is Paleo, then check out this article. Try to find higher quality deli meat without added sugar.
For the sauces, I used some Paleo mayo and some mustard. You can make your own Paleo mayo using coconut oil following this mayo recipe here or you can purchase avocado mayo from Amazon here. The main thing is to try not to eat much seed oils, and most mayonnaise is made from seed oils like canola and sunflower, which are typically rancid.
One of the things I love about traveling is experiencing new food and learning new ways to use ingredients.
Recently, in Portugal, I started noticing that many of the dishes used lemon and lime with the peel on. So the entire citrus fruit was used to give a stronger flavor as well as texture. So, for this Paleo guacamole recipe, I used a slice of lime diced up with the peel on. It added an extra burst of lime flavor to the guacamole that made it stand out.
This recipe is also great for those on a ketogenic diet as instead of using regular tomatoes, I only use 2 small cherry tomatoes to keep the net carbohydrate count low.
This super easy pressure cooker shredded chicken recipe will make your dinner preparations a breeze! All you’ve got to do is throw the ingredients into the pressure cooker pot and press cook!
If you don’t have a pressure cooker yet, then I highly recommend getting one (like this Instant Pot I have) as it’ll make creating tender meats really easy (and fast). While I still love my slow cooker, I have to admit that the pressure cooker saves me a ton of time because it’s so much faster. It means that if I forget to put things into the slow cooker earlier, I can be saved by my pressure cooker.
Give this recipe a try and you’ll see just how easy using your pressure cooker to make dinner can be!
Fajitas are delicious, and if you eat them without the tortilla wraps, then they’re Paleo and Ketogenic.
Here’s a super easy fajitas recipe made with steak (you can use leftover steak you have at home or switch it for sliced chicken breast instead), onions, bell peppers, and some spices.
I love how quick this recipe is to make – you could be eating these easy fajitas recipe in just 20 minutes! And then top it with some delicious super fast guacamole for a wonderful meal complete with meats, veggies, and lots of healthy fats.
While this recipe requires a few more steps, it’s still remarkably easy to make and you could be eating this keto chicken sandwich in just 30 minutes or less (if you cook fast).
By cutting the chicken breast into thin pieces, it cooks much faster. And by coating the chicken pieces with garlic powder and paprika, the chicken as well as the grain-free bread has tons of flavor. (And the chicken slices are kept moist by coating it with an egg mixture.)
The Italian grain-free bread recipe is based on the Microwave Paleo Bread recipe, but I’ve added in some flavorful herbs like Italian seasoning and garlic powder to imbue the bread with more flavor. After the bread is cooked (which takes 5 minutes), it’s sliced and then toasted in the oven to give it a crisp exterior. If you’re in a hurry, then you don’t need to toast the bread before serving the sandwich.

This is a really easy meal, but it’s more exciting than a simple steak and sweet potato dinner. Plus, it’s a great way to eat some different vegetables like asparagus and mushrooms that you might not get a chance to cook regularly. The ginger and parsley in this dish really help to add flavor and the small amount of cherry tomatoes and diced onions add a touch of sweetness to the dish without adding too many carbohydrates for those on a ketogenic diet.
Want to put your pressure cooker to extra use? Then try using it to cook your sweet potatoes in the future! It’s a really simple way to get your sweet potatoes soft and delicious. Plus, cooking sweet potatoes in the pressure cooker is way faster than cooking them in the oven.
If you don’t currently have a pressure cooker, then take a look at the Instant Pot (that’s the one I have). It’s really easy to use and comes with a steaming rack that’s perfect to use to cook your sweet potatoes.

These chicken bacon sausages are delicious as well as easy and quick to make. Plus, they fit the Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo autoimmue protocol) diets. Just omit the egg if you’re allergic to eggs or if you’re on AIP. If you’re ok eating eggs, then I highly recommend adding it in as it makes the sausages moister.
You can make these by baking the sausage patties, or if you have more time, you can pan-fry them in some coconut oil for an crisper outer texture and more browned flavor with a hint of coconut.
This Paleo sausage recipe is great for breakfast – you can make these sausages in advance and store them in the fridge and reheat each morning for a super quick and delicious meal to start your day. It’s nutritious and low in sugar/carbs so it’ll keep you energized until lunch.
I actually wasn’t sure if I should call these mini spinach meatloaves or spinach egg muffins as they’re partially both. There’s both beef and pork (as well as veggies) in them but also eggs to hold everything together well.
Whatever you choose to call these, they make a really nutritious and filling snack if you’re hungry. They can also make a great breakfast, packed lunch, or dinner! They’re easy to make (you do need a muffin tray though) and easy to eat. Plus, they’re low in carbs and suitable for both a Paleo and Ketogenic diet.
You can make these mini spinach meatloaves in advance and keep them in the fridge for a few days to eat so you don’t have to be cooking every day.
This is a colorful appetizer recipe that you can serve to guests at a party or make as a snack for when you’re hungry. It’s easy and quick to throw together so this could become a simple go-to recipe for you.
One of the easiest and most nutritious breakfasts you can eat is eggs with avocado. But to make it more interesting, why not give this easy baked egg in avocado recipe a try – you have to cook the eggs in some way anyway, so why not cook it in the avocado!
You might love this recipe so much that it becomes your regular breakfast dish (plus it’s so easy to make)! In addition, it’s Paleo and ketogenic (low carb) so you’ll be getting lots of healthy fats without the sugar that’s loaded in many breakfast recipes. This dish will keep you energized throughout your morning.
I’ve always enjoyed the combination of pork and apples – the sweetness from the apple complements the pork flavor and the slight acidity from the fruit helps to cut through the fat in the meat.
In this dish, I’ve created a simple green apple radish salsa using green apples, water radishes, and ginger to go with some easy pan-fried pork chops. I also served the pork with some mustard for additional flavor.
You can use any cut of pork if you don’t have pork chops available. Pork tenderloin or pork loin steaks also works really well with this salsa. I wanted a really easy and quick dinner so I used a thin pork chop steak that is common in Europe. If you want to learn how to pan-fry pork tenderloin, then check out this recipe here.
Perhaps what’s best about this recipe is that it’s Paleo, Ketogenic (low carb), and AIP-friendly (just omit the mustard I suggest serving the pork with). So you can enjoy this easy and quick dinner recipe no matter what your dietary restrictions are.
