  • any great lowcarb paleo recipe blogs?

    im having a hard time finding this combination

    i'm tired of the dairy, gluten, soy and artificials in the lowcarb recipe blogs

    also equally tired of wading thru all the sweet potatoes and high glycemic fruits on the paleo blogs. (...and the dairy! Whats with that? )

    Am i asking for the impossible?

    check out the 'Everyday Paleo' blog with Sarah Fragoso. If you have facebook, she also has a facebook page, with direct links to her site. Also has a youtube channel that updates with a new recipe for the week.

        I don't know of any paleo blogs that are entirely low carb, but all the ones I know have a wide variety of recipes that include higher and lower carb paleo options. Have you tried health-bent? Or Life as a Plate? or Purely Primal (they have a lot of meat recipes)? Or Stuff I Make My Husband?

        Good luck finding what you need!

          I'd like to suggest that paleo alone is good. No need to force it to be even lower carb.

            chowstalker.com and dessertstalker.com - portals with links to all paleo recipes that you can search filter (dairy-free, egg-free, or by ingredient)

              i need the lower carbs for my health. I have pcos and my hormones go entirely out of whack if i eat too many carbs. You really dont want to be around my mood swings when i eat carbs.

              I thought that there was a whole subculture of people in the paleo community who are lowcarb as well as paleo.

                healthbent~gorgeous and looks delicious but uses dairy
                lifeasaplate~dairy, honey, sweet potatoes.
                Purelyprimal~looked promising but whats with the dextrose? Thats highly processed corn sugar.
                Stuff i make my husband~dairy

                i thought that the stalkers would work but when i clicked on the lowcarb tab it gave me a recipe that called for 1/2 cup of honey. I'll see if i can get it to work better for me because it seems like it should give what i need.

                Just tired of looking at pretty pictures of things i cant have its disappointing. Usually i just stay away from the food blogs but it would be nice to find at least one that fits the bill that i could browse for inspiration sometimes....

                        I know that it's difficult to be tempted by things you can't have...but I think you're being a little stringent with your blog rejects. Health-bent, for instance, occasionally uses dairy. Just skip the recipes that use it or substitute! I frequent their site often, and I honestly can't think of anything that uses dairy (I'm sure they do on occasion, I just mean it's that rare!). I know they have a great chili recipe with pumpkin. A broccoli salad. Jerky. Steak. A beef soup with the only carbs coming from some onions and green olives. Don't those work for you?

                        I guess what I'm getting at is that you probably will find few blogs that cater to your particular diet, so try to work with the ones you have. I frequent a couple whole foods/CW healthy blogs because they have lots of recipes that are easy to tailor to my way of eating, or accidentally fit my way of eating. I hope you can do the same for your needs with paleo blogs!

                          Well, the reason why you're not having any luck finding many recipes is the only thing you have left to work with are slabs of meat and spinach. Primal and Paleo are not low carb diets. Anything you can make at this point is just meat with a side of veggies. If you remove the butter, the cream, the potatoes, the thickeners and the fruits, what do you have left to actually make anything complex enough to warrant a recipe? Soups and stews are pretty much out, you're not doing any kind of baking, you're eliminating any kind of colorful combinations, purees and sauces are mostly out the window...basically every night you're grilling a steak and slicing up something. Maybe if you want to go nuts, you can use beef stock or a wine reduction.

                          Fruits are paleo.
                          Sweet potatoes are paleo.

                          And I'd eat dairy and "high GI fruit" pretty much any day over nuts, which seem to be the darling of the primal/paleo community. The problem is, they're worse for you than half of the "banned" foods...or even worse - nut butters. Talk about cute poison. Besides, most "high GI" fruit still has a low glycemic load, which is the actual important number. Just look at watermelon.

                          Honestly, you should look into Thai recipes. Most of those recipes are just meat stocks with vegetables, fish sauce and various curries with some coconut milk thrown in. Sugar is always optional, so that can easily be left out. This is really all I can think of that's complex enough to warrant a recipe with the ingredient list you have remaining.

                          On another note, why not dairy? Butter, cream and hard cheeses are rarely an issue for people. Do you have an extreme sensitivity?

                            I make some pretty amazing stews and soups - with no potatoes or dairy or grains of any kind ... and stir fries, and roast things, including beautifully colored veggies on the side .... and a whole lot more !
                            There are all sorts of things to eat, to create into wonderful meals and it's all primal.
                            Last nights meal ... a nice - and quick one skillet meal of lean pork strips, sauteed in coconut oil with onion, radish, shrooms, yellow and zucchini squash, a little fresh okra, finished off with a splash of coconut aminos and some fresh arugula and watercress. Yummy and not overboard on carbs either.
                            Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

                              Yea...and you know what's great about that dinner? No recipe required. Stir-fry "recipes" are redundant. The whole point of stir-fry is that there isn't a recipe. It's just meat and vegetables flash fried in some type of oil, sometimes served over something, usually a starch. As an amateur cook, it offends me to act personally offended because primal/paleo blogs don't have "recipes" for things like this. This ISN'T a recipe, it's just tossing things into a pan. Recipes are for soups, stews, baking, sauces/reductions...stir-fries and meats with a side of vegetables don't require a recipe blog. It would be a waste of time. They're all the same:

                              1.) Heat oil.
                              2.) Cook meat.
                              3.) Add vegetables. Cook til desired doneness.
                              4.) Salt/pepper/season to taste.
                              5.) Eat.

                              It's a waste of internet bandwidth to have a collection of "recipes" consisting of this. It's all the same dish. You just change up what meats and vegetables you throw into it. It's the dairy/starch/sauces/thickeners that require recipes because there are techniques. Maybe you don't know how to make a red wine/mango reduction and get it to the desired consistency. A one-armed, one-eyed woodsman could make a stir-fry.

                              I apologize for the harshness, but like I said, to act personally offended that a website doesn't exist for an ingredient list so incredibly short is bothersome to me as a chef. The food choices are all the same. There would be virtually no new content and no reason to keep checking back. Everything would be redundant.
