Paleo Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Recipe [Keto, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | April 26

I love slow cooker (crockpot) recipes because they’re so easy to prepare. And this slow cooker beef stroganoff recipe is no different!

Just add the beef and vegetables to the slow cooker and let this magical device do its thing. If you don’t have a slow cooker yet, then I highly recommend getting one with a temperature setting like this one.

They’re also amazing for making bone broth with, but if you don’t have any homemade broth ready, then just use store-bought beef broth. For a really healthy version, just beef bone broth like this one from Kettle & Fire.

When the beef is tender and flavorful, add in the coconut cream (to keep it dairy-free), the delicious Dijon mustard that really makes this dish, the parsley for garnish, and salt to taste.

And then to serve, instead of the traditional grain-filled noodles or the carb-heavy rice, you can use zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice.

Enjoy for a super nutritious and hearty Ketogenic (low carb) and Paleo dinner.

Simple but Proven Stress Management Techniques for Coping with the Causes and Effects of Stress

Jeremy Hendon | April 25

Stress is my Nemesis

Seriously. I don’t know pretty much anyone who isn’t more stressed than they would like to be.

I really just want to be happy and unstressed. All the time.

Lately, I feel like I’ve been doing a pretty good job of it. I tend to wake up in the morning pretty grateful for everything in my life, and I’m excited about most of the things I’m doing during the day.

I may not have mentioned it on the blog before, but I’m getting married soon, and then we’re traveling for quite a while. So, all in all, things are pretty good.

But at least once a week, I get pretty overwhelmed by all the things I need to do (marketing, phone calls, website maintenance), all the things I’ve failed to do (call back friends, start a podcast, read more fiction), and all the things that I could do (play basketball, walk outside, play with the cat). It’s inevitable.

Having a routine can be very satisfying and one of my favorite routines is having a cup of coffee or tea in the mornings (after my Ketogenic green smoothie).

19 Enticing Paleo Apple Pie Recipes

Louise Hendon | April 21

While we typically think of apple pies as traditionally American, the first apple pies were made in England as far back as the 14th century!

And the form of apple pies have changed dramatically over the centuries. Initially, they didn’t even have pie shell and didn’t use added sugar.

Apple pies have evolved even more in the past few decades with apple pie flavored foods popping up everywhere (there are even apple pie scented candles!).

So, if you’re an apple pie fan, then don’t worry you don’t have to miss out on your favorite dessert on a Paleo diet.

Instead of a chicken Caesar salad, why not add more variety into your diet and try your salad with shrimp instead.

They’re nutritious and quick to cook – with just 10 minutes of roasting in the oven, they’ll be cooked and ready to eat! If you have a grill, then try grilling them on skewers or on a piece of foil.

Blueberry Coconut Yogurt Smoothie Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | April 10

Blueberries are a delicious and nutritious berry to use on any diet. They’re also delicious and full of antioxidants. That’s why it’s perfect for making smoothies with – it gives your smoothie a distinct flavor and lots of vitamins while only adding a small amount of sugar.

On a Paleo or AIP diet, it’s easy to rely on bananas in your smoothies as the thickening agent. But this can make a very high sugar (and high carbohydrate) breakfast.

And if you’re looking to lose weight or control your blood sugar, then it’s best to avoid having quite that much sugar for breakfast.

So, try using coconut yogurt instead to make your smoothies thick and creamy. It’s dairy-free, loaded with healthy probiotics, and delicious. Just make sure to buy one without added sugar.

Coconut yogurt is also perfect for those on a ketogenic diet as it adds in lots of healthy fats (and probiotics) into your diet without the extra carbs.

If you have trouble finding coconut yogurt at your local store, then you can make it yourself. Also, if you’re on the autoimmune protocol, 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.

Roasted Cauliflower Broccoli Tuna Bowl [Paleo, Keto, AIP]

Louise Hendon | April 3

Roasting vegetables is one of the easiest ways to prepare them. They soften and soak up more flavors during the cooking process. That makes them even more delicious and easier to digest.

Cauliflower and broccoli are two vegetables that are great to enjoy on any diet.

They’re fairly low in carbohydrates so they’re perfect for those looking to lose weight, manage their blood sugar levels, or for those on a ketogenic diet. And they’re filled with nutrition and fiber.

And to create a complete meal with these roasted vegetables, you can top your bowl with canned tuna (choose ones packed in olive oil or brine).

You don’t need a fancy dressing to enjoy this roasted cauliflower broccoli tuna bowl.

But if you have time (and you’re not AIP), you can make a tahini tamari taste to add extra flavor to all that goodness.

This makes a great lunch – you can even pack it to take to work (just don’t open the can of tuna until you’re ready to eat).

Roasted Cauliflower Broccoli Tuna Bowl – Step-By-Step Instructions

Step 1:

Break the cauliflower and broccoli into small pieces and place on a baking tray. Drizzle olive oil and squeeze lemon juice over them. Sprinkle with salt.
