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.

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

Carnitas Recipe

Crispy, flavorful pork carnitas, wonderful on their own, in warm tortillas or lettuce wraps, or spooned over rice or cauliflower rice. Click for the recipe

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin is amazing. Wrapping the pork in bacon not just enhances the flavor, but also ensures the pork stays super juicy. My roasted pork tenderloin is wonderful, but bacon wrapped is now my favorite way of preparing pork tenderloin. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

These wonderful gluten free blueberry muffins are fragrant and fluffy and just as good as wheat flour blueberry muffins. Since almond flour is not as absorbent as wheat flour, I use fewer blueberries in these gluten free blueberry muffins than I would use in wheat muffins. Click for the recipe

Spicy Green Beans

To make these delicious spicy green beans, steam the beans first (I use the microwave), then saute in seasoned olive oil. Yum! They taste just like a salty, spicy snack. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Bread

This homemade gluten free bread is made with almond flour. It’s soft, fragrant, and makes a great canvas for sweet or savory toppings.

When making homemade gluten free bread, it is important however to adjust our expectations. The yeasty aroma and gluten-induced fluffiness that we love about traditional bread cannot be achieved without, well, yeast and gluten, so this is more of a quick bread that fills the need (if you still have it) to make a sandwich or to have a slice of bread for breakfast.

For this purpose, this gluten-free bread works very well, and since it’s low in carbs and relatively high in fat, it will fill you up better and will spare you the blood sugar roller coaster normally associated with flour bread.
