Over the past few years, it’s become increasingly popular to add fats into coffee. Various cultures around the world (Tibetans for instance) have been doing this for centuries, but it’s caught on very quickly in US, especially among those in the Paleo community.
The general idea is to add healthy fat into your morning coffee to give your brain an extra boost.
These fats can take several forms (butter, ghee, coconut oil, MCT oil, etc.). Once added, the coffee is usually blended.
Nutritional therapist Lisa Fossey says “This gives you a slower ‘high’, which will last for longer, and won’t give you the usual surge of energy that can lead to a crash. The caffeine dilates the blood vessels, allowing the good fats and oil to pass more easily into the brain, where it is thought to give increased mental awareness and concentration. MCT is metabolized to produce ketone bodies that provide energy to the body and the brain.”
I had yet to make this super coffee for myself, so trying Pure Indian Foods’ Coffee++ was my perfect chance.
Coffee++ is a new product, and it combines ghee (clarified butter) with MCT oil, so that you don’t have to do it yourself.
Infuse your morning cup of coffee with extra flavors and added health benefits with this easy Paleo recipe…
It always seems so sexy (or perhaps just European) to finish a meal off with some coffee. So, these coffee-flavored coconut pots de crème seemed perfect.
For many people, the morning isn’t fueled by the excitement of a great day—it’s fueled by coffee.
And when the 3pm blues comes around, guess who’s up for coffee round 2 (or round 5 or 6)? With coffee houses popping up everywhere and coffee pots just getting easier (and cheaper) to use, it’s no wonder that this energizing drink has quickly risen to claim a spot as one of the most-consumed beverages in the world.
Perhaps not surprisingly, a good bit of research has been done into how coffee affects the human body.

Cabbage is one of the trendiest veggies these days, and looking at these recipes you will soon understand why!
Besides being Paleo-friendly, cabbage is also easy on your wallet, simple to cook, and more versatile than you probably even realized.
One of the most common ways to cook cabbage is to chop it up and throw it in the frying pan. It’s also one of the tastiest; if you don’t believe me then why don’t you try one of the fried cabbage recipes below.
Add bacon for a traditional approach, or try something a bit more exotic, like curried cabbage! If you’d rather have lemony or smoky flavors, no problem. This list of Paleo cabbage recipes covers those, as well.
I love uncooked cabbage; it’s fresh and crispy, which is why coleslaw makes such a perfect Paleo side dish.
However, if you’d prefer a cabbage stew, we’ve got something for everyone. Have you tried cabbage stew with apples, pork or beet?
What surprised me was how well cabbage pairs up with seafood. If you like fish, for example salmon or tilapia, you’re in for a tasty treat.
Or do what people have been doing for centuries; make sauerkraut!
Initially people used fermentation to preserve foods, and enhance the flavor. Later on scientist have found that the microorganisms – the bacteria in the fermented foods have many health benefits.
If sauerkraut isn’t your thing, you’ll be happy to find out you can make incredible cabbage rolls that are completely Paleo. And in case you’re feeling lazy, we’ve included some crazy-easy, deconstructed cabbage rolls recipes!
From crunchy bruschetta to creamy pasta, who doesn’t love Italian food? But how can you enjoy those flavors of Rome, Sicily, or Naples on a Paleo diet? Not to worry! We’ve put together a delicious list of 29 Paleo-friendly Italian recipes that will have you saying mamma mia!
Whether it’s smoky bruschetta with grilled eggplant or a dainty fennel vanilla panna cotta, you’ll be under the Tuscan sun in no time with these fantastic recipes. In the mood for pasta? No problem! This list also features more than five pasta recipes, including everything from a traditional Bolognese sauce to a delicate creamy pasta with salmon.
Is it just me, or is the Waldorf salad the first thing that comes to your mind, as well, when you think of walnuts?
Everyone seems to have an opinion about this traditional salad that was created in 1896, but not many people know that the original recipe didn’t contain walnuts – or any kind of nuts, for that matter. Good thing someone decided to add them since they are very beneficial to your health!
Did you know all this about walnuts?
– They are rich in high-quality antioxidants – more so than any other common nut, to be exact.
– Walnuts contain plenty of Omega-3’s, that can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
– This study shows that walnuts can help you resist unhealthy food cravings. This means walnut could boost your weight loss. (They are calorie-dense, though, so pay attention to your daily consumption.)
– Adding walnuts to your diet may help you improve your memory.
– Walnuts are high in fiber, which can help your digestion.
Below you’ll find mouthwatering Paleo walnut recipes, including Paleo-friendly versions of the Waldorf salad – but also hearty main dishes! Stuffed pork chops or a walnut crusted steak will take care of even the hungriest of tummies.
However, the side dish recipes presented here are so tasty, you may forget about your entree.
But who am I kidding? The dessert section is obviously my favorite here! Crunchy walnuts make the perfect ingredient for desserts, and you can bet your bottom dollar people won’t even realize these are Paleo.
Some of the desserts would also make awesome, grab-and-run breakfasts on those mornings when you barely have time to get a cup of coffee. I’m crazy about the banana nut muffins and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one!
When sitting down with a nice cup of coffee or tea, a tender scone is the perfect accompaniment, not too sweet, not too savory, just right! But what if you are Paleo? Does that mean you have to give up scones forever? Of course not! You just need to find a new recipe, like our Paleo British scones, which use a combination of coconut and almond flours in place of all purpose flour. A little vanilla and erythritol for sweetness is all the flavoring that these simple yet satisfying scones need!Continue reading
