Sweet potato custard is a completely delicious dessert that just happens to also be completely Primal. Sweet potato, eggs, high-fat dairy (or coconut milk) and a drizzle of maple syrup are the main ingredients in this easy to make, easy to love dessert.
Sweet potato custard is rich and creamy, with a mild flavor reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Except this dessert is better than pumpkin pie—because custard doesn’t need a crust. Every spoonful brings hints of roasted sweet potato, maple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It’s a dessert that’s nearly healthy enough to eat for breakfast (not that we’ve done that…).Read More
Today’s delicious guest recipe is offered up by Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer, and Health and Wellness Blogger Rachael Devaux. You can find her awesome insights and amazing recipes at Rachael’s Good Eats.
Rachael’s taken Primal Kitchen® Vanilla Collagen Fuel and turned it into an easy and tempting bite-sized snack you can have ready and stored for whenever hunger calls. With the sweet tastes of vanilla and coconut and the crunch of a variety of nuts and seeds, I find it’s perfect with some morning coffee or as an after dinner treat.

Serious chocolate lovers, this one’s for your. Dark chocolate + cacao powder deliver an intense dark chocolate flavor that puts these brownies over the top. Sweetened with dates and made with just a half cup of almond flour, these aren’t chewy, overly sweet brownies. Rather, they have pure bittersweet chocolate flavor and smooth truffle-like richness, thanks to butter and eggs.
Choosing chocolate that has at least 70% cacao (but ideally, closer to the 85% range) for this recipe means you’ll enjoy brownies that are rich with antioxidants. Combining the melted dark chocolate with cacao powder boosts the antioxidant level even higher. So, relish every bite of these divine morsels. Primal brownies are so chocolately and so rich, even the most fanatical chocolate lover will be satisfied by a small square.Read More
If ever there was a dessert that you could feel good about eating, this is it. Made only from wholesome, healthy fat ingredients, these intensely rich frozen fudgesicles also provide collagen and antioxidants with every lick. Dark chocolate and PRIMAL KITCHEN Collagen Fuel are whisked into coconut oil, coconut milk and macadamia butter, then frozen. These are fat bombs on a stick, and unbelievably good.
Dense and chewy like regular fudgesicles, but much less sweet, these bars are for dark chocolate and coconut lovers. Easy to make, and easy to love, they’re a frozen treat you can enjoy all summer.Read More
Normally, I’m deep in the thick of nutritional research or other heady topics midweek. Today, not so much. I have coffee on the brain after trying a few new concoctions recently. As I’ve noted in the past, coffee is a welcome part of the Primal Blueprint. Unlike traditional paleo, there’s no conflict here. While living healthily and sleeping well mean I don’t depend on coffee for energy, I consider it a positive staple in my diet, not to mention a pleasant ritual in my day.
I’ve gone into extensive detail about the copious benefits—to overall health, to disease prevention, to cognitive function, even to fitness performance—in the past. Today, I’m all about the actual intake. There’s plenty to the why, but this post covers several Primal ways to enjoy it right now. Let’s dig in….Read More
A slice of warm buttered bread can be hard to resist. When that slice is Primal keto bread, you don’t have to resist. Primal keto bread makes delicious toast and sandwiches a real possibility, whether you’re following a ketogenic diet or simply keeping things Primal.
Before slicing into your first loaf of Primal keto bread (and it does slice beautifully) you should know that it isn’t going to taste exactly like “regular” bread. Keto bread is more similar to quick bread, with a soft almost cake-like texture and thin crust. The recipe here takes inspiration from recipes by Elana’s Pantry and Keto Connect, which both use almond flour and eggs as the main ingredients for keto bread.Read More
