Primal and Paleo Recipes

My Primal and Paleo recipes focus on animal protein (including fermented dairy), vegetables, good fats and good carbs (such as root vegetables and fruit), while avoiding grains, beans, legumes and refined sugar.

Homemade Sausage

I love making this homemade sausage because it’s so easy – simply mix the beef with the seasonings, spread in a pan, cover and bake. When the sausage is done, I cut it into squares and serve. Leftovers are great sautéed  in a little olive oil. This recipe works well with ground pork too, and possibly with chicken or turkey (though I haven’t tried that). Click for the recipe

Chocolate Covered Blueberries

Combining two superfoods – dark chocolate and blueberries – these chocolate covered blueberries is a dessert you can actually feel good about eating. Click for the recipe

Burger Recipe

Adding bacon to your burger mix makes the burgers incredibly juicy and flavorful. Toppings can include smoked cheddar cheese (my personal favorite), a fried egg, bacon and avocado. These delicious burgers make a filling, tasty meal – no bun needed. Click for the recipe

Jalapeno Poppers

These jalapeño poppers are so pretty and festive. They are incredibly delicious, but they are also quite spicy, so serve them only to people who can handle spicy food. Click for the recipe

Homemade Pork Rinds

Pork rinds are the ultimate low-carb snack, fulfilling that salty/crunchy craving without an unnecessary carb overload. Store-bought pork rinds are actually fine, as long as the only ingredients listed are pork skin and salt; but if you happen to source some pork skin (I get mine at the local Hispanic market), making your own in the oven is easy, and the result – though different in texture than commercial fried pork rinds, is delicious and even healthy.

Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

Ripe bananas and cocoa powder are all you need to make your own clean, healthy, Paleo and vegan chocolate banana ice cream. The flavor and texture are incredible! Click for the recipe

Lamb Chops

Intensely flavorful, lamb chops require minimal effort to taste amazing. Simply season with salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary; pan-fry for a couple of minutes on each side, and you have yourself a true delicacy. Your only concern as the chef is not overcooking your lamb chops. Click for the recipe
