Thanks to Courtney Hamilton at Paleohacks.com for today’s keto recipe roundup.
One of the biggest challenges on the keto diet is curbing your cravings for carbs.
We’re used to filling up on bready things to feel satiated, so it makes sense that we reach for a sandwich when we’re low on energy. Going keto typically means that you need to give these foods up, but luckily, it is possible to whip up keto-approved loafs, rolls, and more that cut carbs while delivering the same chewy crumb you crave.
This recipe list has everything from fluffy almond flour sandwich bread to low-carb and keto-friendly snacks, like buttery garlic bread. On the sweeter side, there’s moist zucchini bread dripping with gooey, sugar-free dark chocolate, or a quick and easy blender batter blueberry-studded sweet loaf.Read More
The last couple weeks I’ve grilled up some great Primal+keto meat dishes: steak and marinated chicken. But I’m a big believer in above ground, non-starchy vegetables for a Primal and keto diet. One of the things I love about this recipe is that it shows how vegetables—even cooked ones—never need to be a bland afterthought. These mixed peppers and onions are flavorful all on their own, but the seasonings and dressings turn this into a great side that will hold its own against any meat dish.Read More
Chicken salad is a classic and a frequent sight at summer potlucks and luncheons. But the PUFA oils and high carb breads it usually comes with put a damper on what should be a good thing. Thankfully, this recipe offers a healthy re-do that satisfies a paleo, Primal, and keto standard—not to mention appetite.
Next time you cook up a chicken dinner, prepare a bit extra to put together this easy dish. It makes for a perfect workday lunch or fast weeknight meal.Read More
Last week I shared with you how I cook my steaks. Today I’m covering another grilled favorite—chicken. A lot of people hesitate to grill chicken, especially skinless chicken, and rightly so. Its leanness means that high heat has the propensity to dry it out…unless you know how to marinate well. My daughter, Devyn, came up with what’s become my favorite way to grill chicken. It’s simple and virtually effortless. See what I mean….Read More
With June here, we’re all about grilling. For some lighter fare, we love these Primal- and keto-friendly kabobs with summer veggies. Primal Kitchen® Lemon Turmeric Dressing and Marinade makes this dish incredibly easy and flavorful—without much time and effort on your part. Just a few minutes at the kitchen, another few at the grill, and this delicious, low-carb dinner is served. It’s great for a quick family meal or an impromptu get-together.Read More
Happy Monday, everybody. I’m welcoming you to my backyard today with one of my all-time Primal (and keto) favorites: grilled steak. It doesn’t get much better than a juicy New York strip hot off the grill. Throw in a generous side of broccolini and some steak sauce (I happen to know a good one), and that’s dinner for me.
Grilling a steak isn’t hard work, but a few things can make a big difference for the end result. Check out the video below to see how I do it.Read More
Soup is one of the most overlooked ways for incorporating a rich variety of vegetables in your diet. That goes double for summer soups. We’re loving this keto- and Primal-friendly Zucchini Basil Soup that can be served either warm or chilled any day of the year. But the nutritional goodness isn’t just in the vegetables and herbs. It also serves up the richness of full-fat coconut milk (feel free to use whole milk or cream if you prefer regular dairy) and all the benefits of collagen protein with the help of Bonafide Organic Chicken Bone Broth. Enjoy—and be sure to check out our community giveaway with Bonafide Provisions below!Read More
Lindsay and I are back today with another video in our new Primal + Keto Made Easy Cooking Series. (Check out past videos here. There will be many more to come over the next several weeks.)
This week we’ve got another great Primal + keto snack, and this time it’s a sweet treat anybody (Primal or not) will gravitate to. I’m cooking with two of my personal favorites: dark chocolate and macadamia nuts. Fair warning: be sure to make a good size batch.Read More
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and we know many of you will be celebrating with friends and family. To that end, we’ve got a perfect addition to your Primal and Primal-keto menu: the cowboy burger. With tender portobello mushroom caps, grass-fed beef, bacon, BBQ flavor (you know we’ll be using our very own Primal Kitchen® Classic BBQ Sauce), crispy onions, cheddar and more, it’s so much more than your average burger. Enjoy—and have a Happy (and Healthy) Memorial Day, everyone!Read More
Cool summer fare means more than just Big-Ass Salads. Nothing is off the table, including soup—particularly gazpacho. A perfect summer classic, this gazpacho recipe is a keto lovers dream: loads of flavor and lots of healthy fats, thanks to the goodness of extra virgin avocado oil.
Plus, we gave this dish a spicy kick and cool boost with Medlie’s Organic Kale Avocado Drink. Add jalapeno peppers, garlic and cilantro, and you’ll love this tasty starter soup or full course meal.
