Pesto Egg Salad Recipe

Transform boring egg salad with Primal Kitchen®Pesto Mayo and roasted garlic. We served the egg salad in endive leaves, but you can also use celery, lettuce, or nori sheets. To avoid the garlic from touching aluminum foil when roasting, first wrap the cut head of garlic with a piece of parchment to make a pouch, and fold the parchment over the top, then wrap the foil around the parchment to make a sealed pouch.

Kalbi Ribs Recipe

Rich, intensely savory, and meltingly tender, ribs are about as Primal an eating experience as we can muster these days unless we’re out in the wild hunting or fishing and cooking protein over a campfire. Kalbi, a classic Korean BBQ dish, begins with a bath in a sweet and salty marinade before being cooked until caramelized on a grill or under other intense heat.

Flanken short ribs are cross-cut ribs about a half-inch thick. Ask your butcher to prepare them for you if you can’t find them. For the marinade, you can use any type of apple, or you can use an Asian pear. These ribs are broiled, but you can also put them on the grill for a few minutes on each side.

Primal Breakfast Cookies Recipe

Breakfast cookies are a fantastic way to get some on-the-go nutrition. These cookies are loaded with healthy fats, different forms of protein, and a little sweetness and crunch. The ground cashews provide a sweet and nutty cookie that’s milder compared to almond-based cookies. Feel free to swap out ingredients to change the flavor of the cookies. Try different nuts or seeds, a mashed banana instead of applesauce, or a different flavor of collagen.

Primal and Keto Collagen Recipes

Mark’s said it before: He advocates for collagen to become the fourth macronutrient. Collagen supports collagen-based structures in the body, such as fascia, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, skin, nails, and hair, and most of us just don’t get enough of it from meat, dairy, eggs, or plant proteins. Learn more about the important role glycine, the primary amino acid found in collagen protein, and check out our creative culinary ways to include more collagen in your diet.
Reasons to Include Collagen in Your Diet
Most people regard amino acids in one of two ways: essential, meaning our bodies can’t synthesize them, or inessential, meaning our bodies can. There’s also a third category of amino acids: conditionally essential, which become essential in times of illness and heightened stress. One such conditionally essential amino acid is glycine.

Easy Roasted Winter Vegetables Recipe

It’s a question we might ask (or be asked) every day: What’s for dinner? To keep it simple, Primal, and Primal-keto, that answer can easily be meat and vegetables every night. Day after day. There’s nothing wrong with that, folks. It gets the job done well, and the formula can be easily changed to accommodate preferences and banish boredom. Roast chicken instead of searing steak; broil salmon instead of baking pork chops; steam broccoli instead of boiling asparagus; stir-fry mixed veggies instead of serving a raw salad. You get the idea.

Roasting vegetables is an indispensable cooking technique and meal prep time-saver. Roasting veggies adds caramelized flavor that will make it a pleasure to eat any oven-kissed leftover vegetables again the next day. Make sure to pair vegetables with similar cook times together and cut the pieces in as uniform pieces as you can to ensure even cooking.

Keto Bison Burger Recipe

What Primal, keto, or low-carb eater doesn’t love a burger? You can never have too many burger recipes in my opinion, and this bison burger makes a tender, flavorful patty topped with just enough gooey cheese to add a cloak of rich saltiness. We topped our keto bison burger with sautéed mushrooms, pungent thinly sliced red onion, a slice of bright and acidic tomato, and Primal Kitchen Spicy Ketchup. Wrap in butter lettuce leaves, and you have an all-in-one handheld dinner or lunch that’s easy to switch up according to your tastes or what you have on hand in the kitchen. Use your favorite ground meat in lieu of bison: grass-fed beef, chicken, or turkey would be great substitutes. These burgers would also be delicious with Primal Kitchen Spicy Mustard.

Cioppino

A substantial, acidic, briny, bright one-pot meal with a heady dry white wine broth, cioppino originated in San Francisco from the fishermen’s daily catch and the Italian-American influences around the wharf and surrounding areas. The warm, comforting, aromatic stew chases away any chill from the thick fog that can blanket the area.

This seafood stew can work with a variety of seafood and fish. We like shrimp, scallops and clams because they’re widely available and cook quickly. Steaming the clams in the sauce gives the sauce great flavor. Halibut is a wonderful fish choice, but can be substituted for other firm, white-fleshed fish. If you notice the stew is becoming too dry, you can add additional wine or broth until it reaches the consistency of your liking.

23 Easy Keto Snacks

Our 20 Keto Snacks All Under 5 Minutes has become so popular that we realized that many of you might enjoy a snack or two here and there, whether you identify as intermittent fasters, keto, Primal, Primal-keto, low-carb or other real-food eating ethos. In lieu of fasting when there aren’t any Primal- or keto-friendly food options available and you’re hungry, bringing a snack with you can get you through that long wait at the DMV, the long flight made even longer by delays, or the kids’ football game that went into overtime. Some of the snack ideas we recommend below are pre-packaged (Remember: We’re not anti-convenience here so long as the food inside the package is real and high quality.), and some are quick and easy to whip up on a moment’s notice.

Keto Sugar Cookies

On occasion, a reliable and tasty basic cookie recipe that’s remade to be keto-friendly can be useful when you need to bake something for the kids’ class but don’t want to pump the already energetic kids full of refined sugar, when you’re having guests over that might expect or appreciate dessert, or when you want a nostalgic rainy- or snowy-day activity that perfumes the kitchen with melted butter and toasted sugar. Let the kids help by imprinting the dough with their favorite cookie cutters, icing with melted coconut butter, and decorating the cookies with dark chocolate chips or trimmed pieces of fresh or dried fruit. If you aren’t able to use the sweeteners suggested in this recipe, you can swap in coconut or cane sugar (the carbs will change if you do so, of course).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

These little fat bombs are the perfect treat and a great way to up the healthy fats in your diet while eating keto. We used Primal Kitchen® Peanut Butter Collagen here, but you can swap it out with vanilla or chocolate varieties. Store these fat bombs in the fridge or freezer to keep them firm. For a more chocolatey fat bomb, melt your favorite super dark or sugar-free chocolate and dip the tops of the chilled fat bombs in them. Dust with more Collagen Fuel and chill before enjoying.
