Instant Pot pulled pork is a quick meal in one pot, that you could easily make ahead of time for guests. You can use your favorite bbq sauce or make or your own. I’ll admit that I’m lazy and I usually buy mine. You can get paleo friendly bbq sauce at whole foods or online, and if you are on budget the whole food’s brand 365 has a great bbq sauce that’s not pricey. I also like Annie’s Naturals sweet and spicy organic bbq sauce. So there are plenty of options depending on your diet. I used Annie’s Naturals for the photo above, but I usually make do with what’s in the fridge.
I used to make this in the slow cooker, but the instant pot pressure cooks this for 45 minutes and it’s done. It’s seriously impressive. Although the instant pot definitely was a little scary compared to the slow cooker, it’s worth it. Just be sure to wear an oven mitt when quick releasing the steam/pressure. Better safe than sorry.
This skinny vegetable coconut curry is both vegan and paleo friendly. I’ve made lots of curries over the years but this is my first time posting one of my recipes. This is an Indian curry, using madras curry powder from Koshys that I got at my local Indian market. You can also use your curry powder of your choice or find the one I used online. I normally cook with full fat coconut milk from Native Forest, but I for this recipe I used what was available at Trader Joes, and the consistency of their coconut milk is very light. So I would err on the side of using a light coconut milk if you have the option of choosing a light or full fat version.
This recipe ended up making a lot of food and curry freezes well, so I plan on using this recipe in the future for meal prepping. It would go great on it’s own to eat like a stew if you are paleo, but my husband prefers it with rice, and I don’t mind a little bit of gluten free rice on occasion. Either way, this curry will be a big hit.
Omg this lemon herb aioli tastes amazing on everything, but especially good on baked salmon. I think the fresh lemon juice and the dijon mustard in the aioli go really well with the salmon flavor. My husband, who is my official taste tester loved it, and he’s more of a meat, than a fish, kind of guy. The aioli is made with paleo friendly coconut and avocado oil so it’s really healthy, although it would be just as delicious on sweet potato fries or a burger. It’s a good thing I made a lot of it (I doubled my normal aioli recipe)!
I made this salmon dish with baked green beans, and I sliced some radishes on the side, for a fresh palette cleanser. There is a lot of healthy oil in this dish, but you definitely need something cooked (or uncooked) without any oil on the plate. My husband and I happen to love raw radishes, and they are crazy good for you. Plus, I love their color on the plate.
This slow cooked bratwurst might be one of my new favorite recipes, it’s seriously that delicious. Plus, it’s easy to make and paleo friendly, and you can never have enough slow cooker recipes, at least that’s my opinion. The cabbage makes this recipe really filling and healthy, but it tastes just like comfort food. Instead of slow cooking it with ale, I used Crispin’s Original Hard Apple Cider, which gives it plenty of sweetness, and I also added a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to balance out the sweetness with a little bit of sour. The end result is a nice tangy cabbage and onions that I couldn’t be happier with.
This spaghetti squash stir fry was actually my husband’s idea. We had a lot of paleo friendly leftovers from the week and decided it would be delicious all together as a stir fry and it was! Everything was made ahead of time, from the slow cooked spaghetti squash to the shredded chicken and chopped vegetables. The last time I was at Whole Foods, I noticed that Coconut Secret which makes coconut aminos came out with a teriyaki sauce! It’s soy, gluten, and GMO free and completely organic and vegan. Be sure to salt your food though, unlike soy sauce or conventional teriyaki sauce, it doesn’t add any salty flavor.
This slow cooker turkey chili is pretty mild and paleo friendly. It makes a ton of leftovers, which I love, plus it’s light and healthy, and made without beans or dairy. I wanted a diet friendly chili that was easy to make for Shameer, who is currently on a diet, and I’m really happy with the results. I can definitely see myself cooking this on a regular basis, which is high praise, since I try to create new recipes for you guys as often as possible.
