The Paleo Diet is one of the best for those who are trying to eat more natural, whole foods. While it may not be an easy diet to follow, it’s definitely going to help you change your eating habits and food preferences. Here are some easy Paleo recipes you can try at home. You’ll find they’re surprisingly delicious!
There are few things in the world quite as tasty as steak fajitas. The combination of green and red bell peppers, onions, and sliced steak makes one heck of a delicious meal. Though you can’t eat it with tortillas, you can enjoy it in “lettuce tacos”–using a leaf of lettuce as the wrap for your delicious pan-cooked meat!
Thus traditional Turkish dish is surprisingly tasty, though you’d never guess just by looking. In this dish, you combine onion, tomato, bell pepper, garlic, eggs, and lots of spices to make a simple yet hearty meal. You’ll find it’s a wonderful choice for breakfast, or it can even be served as a tasty dinner treat.
If you’ve never tried ceviche, you’re totally missing out! Not only is it one of the tastiest seafood dishes you can prepare, but it’s also one of the simplest and quickest. Simply chop onions, tomatoes, and a single jalapeno pepper, and put them in a bowl with fresh shrimp, raw fish, or both. Squeeze a lot of lemon juice over the top, and let the mixture sit in your fridge for an hour or two. If you like contrasting flavors, chop up a mango and drop it into the ceviche before eating!
Who doesn’t love a big ol’ omelet to start off your day? Adding a bit of bacon doesn’t just make it more delicious, but it gives you a dose of protein and fat to give your body lots of energy. Mix in some minced red onion with a splash of sesame oil, and sprinkle chives over the top of the onion for a delicious, Paleo-friendly breakfast.
That’s right, egg salad is 100% Paleo if done right! Chop up scallions, parsley, celery sticks, and green bell peppers, and add them into your egg mash. Make your own Paleo mayonnaise, add in a bit of mustard for flavor, sprinkle salt and pepper, and enjoy! You may not be able to eat crackers or toast with this dish, but you can always serve it with celery sticks or lettuce shells.
Hearty Chicken Salad
There’s nothing quite as tasty as a grilled chicken salad, particularly if you have the right Paleo salad dressing to pour over the top. Dice and grill your chicken, chop your lettuce, and add in all the bell peppers, tomatoes, scallions, and carrots you want. You can even add a few artichoke hearts to give it rich flavor, and top it off with a sprinkle of nuts and seeds.
If you like spicy Asian food, this is definitely the Paleo recipe for you. Stir fry a bunch of shrimp in a pan, mixing in onions, crushed red pepper, a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce, and plenty of coconut aminos. Drizzle in a bit of fish sauce and sprinkle fresh cilantro over the top, and you have one tasty treat!
Strawberry Ice Cream
No, we’re not talking the junk you buy at the supermarket, but the kind you make at home yourself. Mix strawberries with coconut milk, lemon juice, and the Paleo sweetener of your choice, blend, and freeze. When the mixture is frozen, scoop into a bowl and eat your homemade sorbet as much as you want!
