Coconut-Aminos

Coconut Aminos, Soy Sauce and Bragg Liquid Aminos

Do you have a craving that only a drizzle of salty, earthy soy sauce can cure? The unique flavor of soy sauce or tamari (a version made without wheat) is hard to duplicate, but rest easy, dear Paleo umami lovers; there is a replacement for you. Coconut aminos have stormed the soy-castle as a Paleo friendly substitution. While not an identical swap, coconut aminos serve as a natural condiment that can be used as a simple dipping sauce for sashimi, … Continue reading

New Paleo Yeast Bread Recipe!

This is the last of our bread recipes of Bread Month here at Paleo Plan, but don't worry - there will be more in the future! So, when I published our Paleo Sandwich Bread recipe, someone asked if they could use yeast in it and still call it Paleo. I hadn't honestly thought of that before, but in the end I decided there wasn't anything at all wrong with using yeast in bread on a Paleo diet! So this is … Continue reading

New Paleo Bread Recipe!

We all miss bread sometimes. I do! Luckily for us, this month is Bread Month at Paleo Plan, which means we'll be serving up 1 new bread recipe a week for 4 weeks. Last week was the Herbed Focaccia, and this week it's a simple, everyday Paleo bread you can feel totally safe eating. It doesn’t contain any grains, soy, dairy, or any other non-Paleo ingredients, and it comes together quickly in a food processor or stand mixer and turns … Continue reading

New Paleo Herbed Focaccia Bread Recipe!

Paleo breads are hard to get right, especially those of the crispy, flavorful, and well textured variety. When I was a bread eater, I loved focaccia (who doesn't?). Or anything Italian, really. So we came up with this Paleo Herbed Focaccia in honor of that old favorite. Traditional focaccia is an Italian bread that is crisp, light, and coated with olive oil. It’s an airy, flat loaf and is often made with herbs, vegetables, or olives. Our Paleo version is easy … Continue reading

Paleo Pumpkin Flatbread Recipe

It's fall!! Time for pumpkin recipes! And what better recipe to start with than a Paleo BREAD recipe :) Well, Paleo flatbread, that is. I honestly couldn't figure out the proper bread-y description for this recipe, so I randomly chose "flatbread". I could just as easily have called them crepes, naan, tortillas, blintzes, pancakes, or wraps. Depending on how thick you make these, they could be all of those things. These flatbreads are my answer to my husband's inability to eat … Continue reading

A Simple Paleo Breakfast Recipe (i.e. My Breakfast This Morning)

Just thought I'd give you a look-see at my eating habits since I'm usually talking about what yours should look like :) Here's my breakfast from this morning, and in a sec I'll tell you what it is and how to make it. Yes, it's another egg dish, but... it's delicious and relatively inexpensive. I either eat this or just plain sausage and eggs for breakfast every morning. Sometimes I add sauerkraut to the mix, and I always have a … Continue reading

Paleolithic Diet Recipes: Cooking the Perfect Steak, the Paleo Way

For those on the Paleo diet, nothing beats the perfectly-cooked steak when it comes to flavor and protein count. Our cavemen ancestors would’ve been salivating if they saw the beauty of today’s perfect steak. It’s no wonder why the steak is one of the most popular Paleolithic diet recipes. Cooking the perfect steak may not call for all that many ingredients and steps, but it can still be a very intimidating task. Its simplicity can be very deceptive, even for … Continue reading

Pemmican – Bird or Magical Food?

I used to think a pemmican was a kind of bird. Seriously, when I read The Call of the Wild, I'm pretty sure they talked about giving their sled dogs pemmican and I thought they were just tossing the dogs birds. I finally found out what it was the other day when I came across this website for U.S. Wellness Meats. It turns out that pemmican is a highly nutritious, life-sustaining food that Native Americans of the U.S. originated (who … Continue reading

Coconut Sap: A Paleo-ish Sweetener

We all know that sugar and Paleo don't really mix well.  Most people avoid the Paleo diet like the plague purely because they can't have their sugar on the diet.  The only sweets we get on this diet are fruits.  I used to think that the only dessert worth having was bready and chocolate-y - certainly not fruity.  Maybe if the fruit was accompanied by chocolate... Anyway, all of us who eat on the Paleo spectrum probably indulge in sweets … Continue reading
