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.

Guacamole Deviled Eggs

Guacamole deviled eggs make a fun, delicious twist on the classic appetizer. I don’t mind using prepared guacamole in this recipe – it saves time and makes my life easier. Guacamole is actually one of the few packaged items that tend to have a clean ingredients list. Click for the recipe

Lamb Meatballs

This simple recipe for lamb meatballs relies on the inherently bold flavor of lamb. Simply mix in a few spices, form into meatballs and bake. Dipped in mint yogurt sauce, these lamb meatballs are absolutely delicious. If you don’t mind grains/carbs, these meatballs and sauce are also excellent stuffed inside warm pita bread.

Paleo Chocolate Muffins

I’ve been on a chocolate kick lately, and these Paleo chocolate muffins are the perfect answer to “what can I have that’s rich, chocolaty, gooey and awesome, but doesn’t contain wheat and won’t send my blood sugar sky-high?”

These Paleo chocolate muffins are good enough to serve as dessert, but they are also wholesome enough that I allow myself and the kids a couple of them for breakfast on weekends. An added bonus: unlike refined-flour-and-sugar-muffins, these muffins are very filling, probably thanks to using almond butter in lieu of flour. Click for the recipe
