35 Paleo Cabbage Recipes Your Grandma Would Be Proud Of

Louise Hendon | September 11

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.

Traditional Or Spiced Up?

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.

Cabbage Is Perfect For Stews

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!

This Is Why You Should Eat Fermented Foods

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.

For example:

  • they can help lower your blood pressure
  • they have anti-microbial effects and can improve your gut health
  • they are anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic

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!

Summer may be trickling to an end, and the weather may not be what it was a month or two ago, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t lovely to enjoy a nice cold dessert once and a while.

26 Paleo Indian Recipes You’ll Wish You’d Known About Sooner

Louise Hendon | August 31

If I had to name my favorite cuisine, it would probably be Indian. We all know Indian food works wonders when you want to warm up on a cold night, or just pamper your demanding taste buds.

That’s why I’ve been so thrilled to find out my Paleo diet is not going to stop me from enjoying these familiar, spicy flavors.

From chicken tandoori to pork vindaloo meatballs, this list includes all your favorite Indian dishes.

Here are a few great examples you’ll find on this list:

  • Curry recipes – Whether you like beef, fish, vegetable, lamb or chicken curry, we’ve got you covered.
  • Flatbread – What’s Indian food without some tasty naan bread? Nothing, if you ask me! That’s why we’ve included Paleo-friendly flatbread recipes.
  • Easy-to-make options – Try the 4-ingredient chicken curry or the beef curry that is made in the pressure cooker. You won’t have to bend over backward to make either of these.

You’ll also find yummy dessert recipes that will crown your Indian meal and surprise everyone at the table. They’ll get another surprise when you tell them all the recipes were Paleo!

If you’re not a big fan of spicy food or there are kids at your dinner party, no need to worry; we’ve also included recipes that are less spicy, but still super flavorful.

You could also adjust the heat by cutting down the amount of ginger or curry powder. Or spice it up even more – it’s up to you!

Most of these Paleo Indian recipes are easy to double (or even triple), which makes them perfect for those times you’re cooking for a larger crowd. And if you happen to have leftovers, here’s a secret; spicy food only gets better after a day or two!

34 Easy Paleo Kale Recipes That Will Make Your Diet Even Healthier

Louise Hendon | August 15

If you’d like to make the most of your Paleo diet and get as many health benefits as possible, it’s time to include some delicious Paleo kale recipes!

Kale is packed with a massive amount of nutrients that are great for your body in so many different ways. Not to mention it is a delicious veggie that is a perfect addition to any meal of the day.

Did you know kale contains a high amount of a nutrient called lutein? Consuming lutein-rich foods can have a positive effect on your eye health.

If you’re on a dairy-free Paleo diet, you’ll be happy to hear the calcium and vitamin K in kale are great for your bone health and can help prevent osteoporosis.

There are various types of kale that you can use in these Paleo-friendly recipes:
Curly leaf kale – Probably the most common kale; great for crunchy Paleo kale chips!
Tuscan kale – This one is a bit thinner than the curly leaf kale, so it cooks faster (good to know if you’re short on time!)
Red kale – Also known as Russian kale; makes a gorgeous presentation with its red-hued leaves and stem.
Baby kale – A young kale that has a more subtle flavor, perfect for Paleo kale salads.

One of the reasons I like to cook Paleo kale recipes is that they’re easy on your wallet. Kale is available almost throughout the whole year, wherever you live, and it won’t wreck your budget. You’ll find some of my favorite Paleo recipes on this list! Kale is super easy to cook, whether you’re looking for a Paleo breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Some of my favorite Paleo kale breakfast recipes are the muffins and frittatas. How about lunch then; would you rather have sashimi or steak? We’ve got you covered!

34 Crunchy Recipes for Paleo Chips

Louise Hendon | July 28

Do you miss the flavor of those crunchy, crispy potato chips you used to buy before you started eating Paleo?

I used to get terrible cravings for chips, and the urge to go and eat a whole bag of them was getting out of hand. That’s when I started looking into Paleo alternatives.

There are plenty of Paleo approved chips that you can make at home – and it’s a lot easier than you think!

Our list of 34 delicious Paleo chip recipes includes everything from kale chips to plantain chips, and once you realize how simple these are to make, you’ll want to try one every day of the week.

Any of these chips will make a great Paleo snack; enjoy them with Paleo-friendly dips, add to a bowl of your favorite soup, serve as a healthy movie night snack, or grab a bag of these with you when you leave for work.

Trying one (or ten) of these chip recipes is a great way to make sure your snack is 100% Paleo and healthy. You won’t have to worry about what’s in them – and you can spice them up any way you’d like, to create new, mouthwatering flavors.

If the recipe requires slicing the ingredients, I recommend trying to make the slices as thin as possible. The thinner they are, the crispier the end result – and I’m pretty sure we all prefer super crunchy chips!

I like to make small portions of these, at a time, instead of larger batches. First of all, because they are too hard to resist – and second, because in my opinion they taste even better when they are freshly made. With recipes as easy as these, you won’t mind whipping up a new batch every day.
