Once hot, add a little avocado oil or use avocado oil spray. Place the tortilla in the pan and let it heat up for 15 seconds on each side. You want the tortilla to be pliable and soft, but not to the point where it gets too toasted and gets tough. Quickly cut a slit halfway through the center of the tortilla. Orient the tortilla so the cut side of the tortilla is facing you. Arrange the fillings in each quadrant of the tortilla. Fold the bottom left flap of the tortilla up to meet the top left. Flip that section to the right to cover the top right quadrant. Then flip one more time to cover the bottom right quadrant. Add a little more avocado spray to the pan. Once the oil is hot, place the folded tortilla in it. If needed, you can gently press the tortilla down with a small skillet or bottom of a heavy jar. Flip the folded tortilla over with a spatula until both sides are nice and browned. Repeat with additional tortillas and fillings.

Today, we’re offering two variations of bone broth latté recipes: one creamy, golden turmeric bone broth latte with warm sweet spices, and another featuring aromatic garlic and herbs. Both creamy, full-bodied, and flavorful.
Whether you have a bone broth latte for breakfast, as an afternoon pick-me-up, or to wind down in the evening, you’ll find yourself reaching for this quick and easy snack option all the time. Warm, soothing, satisfying, and surprisingly filling – what’s not to love? Soon, you’ll find yourself getting creative and coming up with your own variations.
Around 10 years ago, chia seeds exploded onto the food blog scene as a “superfood” ingredient – both for its tendency to form a viscous gel when soaked, and for its fiber and omega-3 content. While plant-based omega-3s aren’t as useful to the body as an omega-3 you would get from fish or a supplement, it’s still a great way to make a tasty dessert that works with Paleo and Primal guidelines. Because of their neutral flavor, chia seed puddings are fun to experiment with, and a great way to enjoy dessert if you’re avoiding traditional pudding ingredients.
Paté sounds intimidating on so many levels. Chances are, you didn’t grow up making or eating it. You have to use a French accent when you pronounce the é at the end as “ay.” Then there’s the part where it’s made of liver, and the concept of organ meats may make you think twice. We put together a chicken liver paté recipe that’s easy to make and softens the gamey flavor of liver with aromatic onion, garlic, and herbs. We also use dijon mustard and balsamic vinegar to add a bright backdrop to what will become your new favorite dip.
The rich, creamy spread pairs best with some crunch, so we’re serving them with sliced fresh vegetables. You could also try them with your favorite almond flour crackers.
Here’s how it’s done.
Coleslaw is an easy, tasty go-to when you’re looking for a versatile vegetable side for your meal when you want to balance a rich meal with a light salad, or when you need to add some crunch to your tacos and wraps.
This creamy citrus coleslaw is a refreshing spin on traditional slaw that incorporates zingy lime and bright cilantro alongside cool cabbage. Lighter than the deli favorite, this zesty side goes great with fish tacos.
Coming in at 4 net carbs, you can work citrus coleslaw into any eating plan, whether you’re Primal, keto, or paleo. Want to make it vegan? Swap in vegan mayo in place of regular mayo.
The best part? This citrus slaw comes together in five minutes! Bring it to a backyard BBQ, pack it along for your next beach day, or add a little citrusy crunch to a dinner of grilled meat or veggies.
Here’s how it’s done.
Cranberry sauce adds a pop of color and tangy zing to any Thanksgiving spread. With so many savory and hearty flavors on the table, this old-school side adds balance to your plate. Unfortunately, cranberries are naturally pretty sour on their own, and the familiar sweetness you taste in most recipes usually comes from more sugar than a can of soda.
If you’re going to indulge in sweets, save it for dessert. This no sugar added cranberry sauce recipe is sweetened with applesauce. You can use maple syrup, honey, or your favorite natural sweetener if you want to tone down the natural tartness. A fresh, homemade no added sugar cranberry sauce is the perfect side dish to your turkey and green bean casserole for the holiday feast.
No sugar-added cranberry sauce is easy to make, and will likely be the quickest recipe you’ll make for your whole Thanksgiving celebration. Here’s how to make a whole berry cranberry sauce from scratch, right at home.
How to Make Cranberry Sauce With No Added Sugar
Time in the kitchen: 15 minutes
18 oz. fresh cranberries (we love Honestly Cranberry)
1 cup water
1/2 cup applesauce
3 Tbsp. fresh squeezed orange juice
2 Tbsp. honey
Zest from ½ orange
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
Place the cranberries and water in a pot and heat over medium heat.
Mix in the applesauce, orange juice, honey, and orange zest.
When the pot comes to a boil, reduce it to a simmer and stir in the ground cloves and ginger and the cinnamon.
Allow the sauce to simmer for around 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce reaches the consistency of your liking. Taste the sauce occasionally and adjust the sweetener to taste.
Serve this cranberry sauce alongside your favorite meat or holiday meal. It’s also delicious as a lower sugar sweet option when paired with a bit of coconut cream, dark chocolate or fresh whipped cream.
– If the cranberry sauce is too tart for you as written, feel free to add additional honey. You could also use maple syrup.
– Depending on the strength of your stove top burner and the size of your cranberries, you may need a little more or less time for the sauce to finish cooking.

Ashleigh recently released her new organ meats cookbook, It Takes Guts, available in stores now! Liver is a superfood that’s packed with pre-formed nutrients like vitamin A, zinc, folate, and more, which are important nutrients to get for everyone, and especially people who are experimenting with a carnivore diet. Understandably, a lot of people find it intimidating. Even if you didn’t grow up with it, liver is a food that is easy to learn to love. You just need the right recipes to make it happen. This appetizer is a delicious way to introduce liver into your life. Wrap anything in prosciutto and it’ll be a crowd-pleaser! Here, the rich, creamy sweetness of chicken livers pairs really well with crispy, salty prosciutto. (You can use thin-sliced bacon, too.) You definitely want to eat this delicious and protein-packed appetizer immediately, as soon as the livers come out of the skillet. Serves: 6 appetizers Time in the kitchen: 1 hour to soak livers, then 15 minutes active time Prosciutto-wrapped Chicken Liver Recipe Ingredients 6 whole chicken livers, split into 2 lobes each (12 pieces total), cleaned (see instructions) Ground black pepper 12 slices prosciutto Fresh thyme or rosemary sprigs, for garnish Special Equipment 2 (9-inch) wood skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour Instructions To clean all animal livers, first rinse them in cold water, then trim any white connective tissue or membranes with a sharp paring knife. Soak them for one hour in cold water with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or a pinch of salt. Pat the livers dry with a paper towel. Lightly season with pepper. Using 1 strip of prosciutto per lobe, wrap the strips tightly around the liver pieces so that they are entirely covered. Using the skewers to hold the prosciutto in place, insert the prosciutto-wrapped livers onto the skewers, 6 per skewer. Preheat a barbecue grill to medium heat, or preheat a grill pan on the stovetop over medium heat. Grill the skewers, turning them every few minutes, until the prosciutto is crispy and the liver is just cooked through, about 7 minutes. Serve hot with a garnish of fresh thyme or rosemary. NOTE: If you have leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, throw them back in a skillet over medium heat with some butter until re-crisped, about 3 minutes.

There’s nothing like sitting around the fire in the fall, sipping on something warm in your mug. And where there’s a fire, there are s’mores.
If you’re eating closer to the way your ancestors did, you probably politely pass when the s’mores come out. Now, you can join in the fun. You’ll never be left wanting for campfire s’mores again thanks to these Paleo graham crackers and homemade gooey marshmallows.
Making your own crackers may be intimidating, but it’s easy. The dough comes together quickly and is fun to roll and cut out. They would be a great activity to do with kids or friends, and the dough is egg-free so you can taste it before baking.
If you have time, we highly recommend making your own marshmallows. We’ve linked a few great recipes below. If you’re in a bind, there are also some decent pre-made options for marshmallows, like Smashmallow® brand.
Here’s how to do it.
The sun may have set on summer, but fall grilling is just getting started. Today, we’re putting a keto spin on a Chilean favorite, the Completo Hot Dog.
What Is a Completo Hot Dog?
What is a keto completo? It’s two things. First, it’s a fun tongue-twister (say “keto completo” five times fast).
More seriously though…
A completo hot dog is the South American interpretation of the loaded hot dog. You start with a warm hot dog roll, add a frank hot off the grill, then stack it with ingredients that take it from a humble hot dog to a next-level “complete” meal that fits in your palm … barely.
The Keto Bread is fantastic with this hot dog. The batter will fill about 5 hot dog molds, but will depend on the mold size. Make sure the molds are well greased (we like to spray them with Avocado Oil Spray), and then fill the molds 1/2 to 2/3 of the way. If you want to skip the bread, you can also wrap the hot dog in large leaves of butter lettuce.
Let’s get to it.
Completo Hot Dog Recipe
Time in the kitchen: 15 minutes plus time to bake the keto hot dog rolls, if using
1 batch Keto Bread, baked in hot dog mold trays
5 grass-fed or pasture raised beef hot dogs
2 small to medium avocados
Juice from ½ lime
1/2 cup sauerkraut (bought or homemade)
1/4 chopped red onion
2 chopped tomatoes
Avocado oil mayo, to drizzle on top
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare the Keto Bread recipe based on the instructions and pour the bread mixture into 4-6 hot dog molds, depending on the size of the molds. Bake at 350 for about 18 minutes, or until the buns are firm and golden.
Preheat your grill to medium high heat. Once hot, place the hot dogs on the grill. Flip them every 30 seconds or so until they are hot and have nice grill marks.
Cut the avocados and scoop out the inside, discarding the pit. Mash the avocado with the lime juice.
Carefully slice the sides of the hot dog bun just enough to be able to place the hot dog in them, but not enough that they split. Nestle the hot dog in the middle.
Spread some of the avocado mixture on top of the hot dog. Add the chopped onion, tomato and sauerkraut on top.
Place some of the Primal Kitchen Mayonnaise in a squeeze bottle or piping bag and drizzle it all over the top of the hot dog. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs. Enjoy immediately!

Brownies are the classic bake sale staple that can take you right back to childhood…the ooey-gooey texture, the overwhelming aroma of chocolate, the fudgy middle. Growing up, the absolute best brownies were a treat for special days at school. Dusted with powdered sugar, these dense squares would taste so good (until you were falling asleep at your desk at 3pm, in a full sugar haze).
Update the nostalgic classic with Fudgy Keto Zucchini Brownies. This delectable treat is the perfect solution for any leftover zucchini lying around after making zoodles or zucchini bread. With just a ¾ cup of shredded zucchini, eggs, chocolate and a handful of pantry staple items, you can whip mouthwatering chocolate zucchini brownies up in just thirty minutes.
