Baked Parnsip Paleo Fries with parsley garnish
I really enjoyed the parsnip fries that Alison Golden made for us (see the post about the dinner here), and so I tried it for myself!

It was a cinch and really delicious.

paleo chicken nuggets recipe
As soon as Jeremy tasted these Paleo chicken nuggets, he looked up at me with a mouthful and said, “Wow, everyone is going to love this!”

It’s really easy, delicious, and perfect for kids (young or old!).

I made a baked version of this before (recipe here), but I really think my new Paleo chicken nuggets recipe below (shallow fried in ghee) is even better!

paleo gluten free popcorn shrimp recipe
Jeremy always talks about his childhood spent eating and drinking non-Paleo classics like chocolate milk, bologna sandwiches, cherry coke, and popcorn shrimp (things I thankfully missed out on growing up in England). But, I thought I’d bring back some of his childhood foods by recreating Paleo versions of them. The Paleo popcorn shrimp recipe turned out amazingly well (in fact, Jeremy thought it was probably better than what he remembered!).

Make Your Own Bacon Cups

paleo bacon cups
I had been wanting to make some bacon cups ever since one of my readers sent me a link to a company that sold some form of device for making bacon cups!

It’s a handy cup for filling up with simple salads, and it’s not only “cute” but also delicious!

paleo traveling frankfurt germany airport
Traveling is always tough when you’re on any type of diet, and long flights with layovers are the worst! I recently flew from San Francisco to Mumbai with a layover in Frankfurt (so that was an 11 hour flight followed by an 8 hour flight with around 3 hours to kill in Frankfurt airport).

I had stocked up on snacks for the long plane ride before I left San Francisco, but I was also surprised by the Paleo options at Frankfurt International Airport.

Paleo chicken and apple sausages
I’m sure most of you already know and love Juli from PaleOMG - she’s freaking hilarious and has the most outrageously delicious recipes. And she was kind enough to let me share this chicken and apple sausage recipe with her readers.

This really makes a fantastic breakfast that you can make in advance and freeze!

Paleo Snack - Sophia's Grass Fed Beef Jerky Chews
I get a lot of questions asking me for healthy snack recipes, and I have to admit, it’s often hard up with them, so I wanted to share with you this amazing “pre-packaged” snack that’s both healthy and delicious.

As Paleo and the real food movement grows, there are more and more food companies producing pre-packaged foods for us that’s supposedly healthier than the traditional chemical-laden junk we’re used to. But how do you tell what’s actually a good, healthy “pre-packaged” food and not just junk in disguise?

For me, Sophia’s Grass Fed Jerky Chews is as healthy and Paleo as it gets for something that comes in a bag – I actually found these around three years ago, and I can’t believe it’s taken this longer for me to write about it!

This is lightly flavored pure grass-fed beef without any sugar (disguised in any form, although if you want a bit of Paleo sugar in your jerky, then there’s a flavor for you), MSG, preservatives, or any other type of junk. Even purists cannot find fault with these!

The Ultimate Paleo Coffee

Watch the Bloopers at the End!

This coffee is what I’ve been loving recently! And I’m showing you how to make it in my very first video on YouTube – I even designed my channel art last night (*feeling smug*).

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel here or click the link the video – I have more videos in the pipeline, including one on my favorite salad.

A Few Quick Tips on How to Make the Ultimate Paleo Coffee

  1. Start slow – by this, I mean that if you’re not used to eating much fat, then I would put in just 1 teaspoon of ghee + 1 teaspoon of coconut oil initially until your body adjusts after a few weeks.
  2. Use good ghee – this is the ghee I use (it tastes absolutely AMAZING – in fact, I love licking my spoon after scooping the ghee out)! Pure Indian Foods Grassfed Organic Cultured Ghee

    You might be wondering why cultured ghee, so this is what Pure Indian Foods say is special about “Cultured Ghee” as opposed to “normal ghee:”

I really wasn’t sure what to call this dish – it’s kind of a salad, but I like it served warm.

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chia has become known as a “superfoods” in recent times, and it is pretty spectacular as a food! There are all sorts of health benefits from reducing arthritis to promoting gut health, but what I like the most about chia seeds is the fact that they puff up so much! Check out the photos below to see their amazing transformation!
