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.

Step 5:

Drizzle with extra olive oil, salt, and lemon juice to taste. And add some chopped fresh parsley (I find this adds a lot of flavor and lightens the dish). Mix everything together well.

28 Mouthwatering Ketogenic Soup Recipes

We’ve put together a large selection of different ketogenic soup recipes below. You’ll find everything from traditional chicken soups to thick non-dairy “creamy” soups.

Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | March 6

If you haven’t come across this dish, then you have to give it a try!

Adobo is considered to be (unofficially) the Philippines’ national dish.

Although the word adobo comes originally from the Spanish word ‘adobar’, which means to marinade, the recipe dates back to before the Philippines was colonized by the Spanish.

Chicken or pork was marinated in salt and vinegar as a means of preservation. The meat was then cooked in the marinade. Later on, Chinese traders introduced soy sauce which replaced salt in the dish.

Nowadays, there are tons of different ways adobo is prepared. You can add potatoes, chicken gizzard, and chicken liver to it. Some people even add pineapple, coconut milk, or turmeric to the dish.

You can also use vegetables instead of meat like water spinach, or seafood if you want. The possibilities for this dish are endless, so I hope you enjoy playing around with the recipe.

Chicken adobo is usually served with rice, but for a Paleo or Keto version, try it with cauliflower rice instead.

This chicken adobo recipe is a reasonably traditional version (except it’s made in the slow cooker and then served on top of cauliflower rice). Enjoy it for a delicious and easy Paleo or Ketogenic meal.

Pink Peppercorn Smoked Salmon Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | March 1

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!
