These days you can find a wide array of grain-free pastas with genuinely delicious flavor and texture. If you like the taste of pasta but want to limit the pasta carbs, add meat and veggies so less pasta goes further in the dish. Chicken thighs are a great choice to this end. Experiment with adding in veggies like spinach, baby broccoli, mushrooms or bell peppers, and create a variety of versions to your own taste.
For the sauce, use a full-fat coconut milk for the richest flavor, or use traditional full-fat dairy milk or your favorite milk substitute along with our new Primal Kitchen® No-Dairy Vodka Sauce.Read More
Pasta night needn’t be a thing of the past when you adopt Primal Blueprint eating principles. While there’s a host of packaged paleo and even keto pasta choices out there these days, the simplest, whole food option is the humble spaghetti squash.
Here we’ve taken full advantage by using the remaining shell as a festive bowl once we’ve shredded the “noodles” from the inside. With meatballs, peppers, onions, marinara and mozzarella, you’ll enjoy all the flavors of your favorite pizza.Read More
Keto eating should always put nutrients first, but there’s nothing wrong with having treat recipes on hand for when you’re making the conscious choice to enjoy something sweet. This recipe offers it all—whole food, Primal friendly ingredients for whipping up either a Primal brownie batch…or a keto version. You’ll enjoy the rich texture and deep chocolate taste without the typical sugar rush.
Tips: This recipe has a primal option sweetened with dates and a keto option sweetened with a granulated monk fruit sweetener. Feel free to use Swerve in lieu of the monk fruit. These brownies are extra fudgy and taste even better after being refrigerated, so we highly recommend allowing them to cool, cutting them and then placing them in the fridge for a few hours or overnight before enjoying.Read More
There’s such simplicity in pairing a delicious pasta sauce with zoodles or spaghetti squash, but sometimes you want to pull out all of the stops. When you feel like getting fancy, this Primal pasta is the perfect idea!
Since the Primal pasta recipe is not low-carb, we’ve also included a Keto option that is cheese based. Keep in mind that the Paleo recipe is a boiled pasta, while the Keto option is baked.Read More
In a perfect world, we’d all sit down every morning to a leisurely, healthy breakfast. In the real world, however, we’ve all done our share of eating breakfast in our cars, on the bus, or at our work stations Sometimes, where you eat the breakfast you grabbed on your way out the door can’t be helped. What can be helped, however, is what you eat. Keep in mind that while omelet muffins are perfect for breakfast on the go, they’d also be great for a weekend brunch. Double the recipe and make a dozen. Then, make time to sit down with family or friends and enjoy the type of long, leisurely breakfast that’s so hard to come by during the week.Read More
White chili is called white chili for three reasons. One, it’s made with chicken, not beef. Two, it’s made with white beans. Three, it’s sometimes thickened with milk and flour, or cream.
Does white chili have a place at the Primal table? Absolutely. It’s easy to dispense with the milk and flour, since thickening the chili isn’t crucial to its flavor. What about the beans? You can keep them in the chili if you like (although perhaps in smaller amounts than most recipes call for). Or, substitute cubes of white sweet potato to provide a creamy but slightly firm texture that’s similar to beans. Like beans, celery root also has a neutral, but earthy flavor.Read More
