Just because you’re Paleo doesn’t mean you have to blow your paycheck on exotic ingredients. This Paleo chicken bacon saute with broccoli and carrots recipe is simple, simple, simple.
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.
Spaghetti Bolognese, it’s a classic, found on the menu of nearly any Italian restaurant across the country. But is it possible to give this old world classic a makeover? Our Paleo bolognese zoodles say yes! That’s right, traditional wheat pasta is out and zucchini is in. The tender veggie pasta pairs perfectly with the hearty bolognese sauce, that gets a beefy boost from the broth added to the tomatoes in the sauce. Clocking in at under an hour of prep and cook time, this satisfying meal is easy enough to make on a weeknight, not to mention the bolognese sauce would be a great addition to lunch the next day!Continue reading
Growing up, we had a lot of meals made with cream of mushroom soup. When in doubt, my mom just put cream of mushroom on it and called it a day. This recipe for Paleo creamy chicken and mushrooms reminds me of the meals I grew up with, but it’s a lot healthier! Cream of mushroom soup is loaded with sodium, dairy, and all kinds of additives. Yuck! Our mushroom sauce is lighter, dairy-free, and of course, made with whole ingredients only. The creamy sauce elevates ordinary chicken into something special and we can’t forget the cauli rice. After all, you need something to soak up all that extra sauce, so you can savor it down to the last drop!Continue reading
