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

quick pan seared scallops

New Recipe! Quick Pan Seared Scallops

When it comes to seafood, shrimp is a great choice. It cooks pretty fast, and you can eat it in a variety of ways. If you’re looking for something a bit different, however, scallops are a great option. Just as quick cooking and versatile, they are delicious when you’re looking for something a bit more upscale, yet still easy to cook. The key to cooking scallops is to not overcook them. If you do, they’ll become tough, rubbery, and generally … Continue reading

Roasted Pork Fajita Salad with Coconut Lime Dressing

New Recipe! Roasted Pork Fajita Salad with Coconut Lime Dressing

Normal restaurant fajitas are not Paleo due to the tortillas, dairy, and vegetable oils they're normally cooked in. But that doesn’t mean you don’t get a craving for one once in awhile. This Roasted Pork Fajita Salad made with tender roasted pork and vegetables is topped with a creamy coconut dressing that does a wonderful job of complementing the spices. You can use any type of salad green you like here; crunchy Romaine is nice, or you can use a dark … Continue reading

Chocolate Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread Recipe from Civilized Caveman

Boy do I have a treat (literally) for you today. Banana bread is a staple in my life because it's a hearty, carb-rich snack that also can have quite a bit of fat and protein in it. It's great for rock climbing to keep me energized through the day. It's also just a nice treat to have on hand. This Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread recipe is from my friend George Bryant's brand new book, The Paleo Kitchen: Finding Primal … Continue reading

Mango and Calamari Ceviche

New Recipe! Mango and Calamari Ceviche

I recently became a huge ceviche fan. I had no idea I was missing out on the delicate and refreshing flavors of ceviche until I ordered a raw salmon ceviche dish at this Asian fusion restaurant in Vegas. So we decided we needed to create this new Mango and Calamari Ceviche recipe to celebrate my newfound love :) If you are a fan of the fried calamari you get off the appetizer menu of your favorite restaurant, you’ll love this … Continue reading

Cumin Scented Halibut with Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

New Recipe! Cumin Scented Halibut with Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

We've got a brand new colorful, light, and extremely healthy recipe up on the site! Cumin Scented Halibut with Balsamic Roasted Vegetables. I'm drooling on myself as I write that. It's dinner time and I'm hungry... Slightly charred and flavorful veggies go perfectly with a nice piece of seared halibut in this recipe. The key to doing the fish right is to allow your filets to come to room temperature, and get your pan good and hot before you add … Continue reading

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

New Recipe! Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Most tuna salad is the same blend of celery, onion and mayo. It’s bland, boring, and depending on the mayo you use, not always Paleo friendly. This version is light and flavorful, thanks to kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, and artichokes. The herby lemon olive oil dressing brings it all together to make the flavors sing. If you can find some high quality, imported tuna, that will elevate this even higher, but any will do. Either way, you’ll find this … Continue reading

Chicken Primavera Bowl

New Recipe! Chicken Primavera Bowl

Primavera always evokes feelings of fresh and healthy, but in reality, the dish is usually a lot of starchy pasta with a few veggies thrown in. This version is heavy on vegetables, has some shredded chicken for protein and gets its flavor from olive oil, lemon, and lots of garlic. It’s filling, delicious, and unlike the pasta version, actually good for you. The veggies in this recipe are only a guide; feel free to use whatever you want. Pea pods … Continue reading

Asian Ground Beef and Veggie Lettuce Wraps

New Recipe! Asian Ground Beef & Veggie Lettuce Wraps

Asian food is considered to be healthy by a lot of people, but when you break it down, it contains a lot of ingredients that aren’t quite Paleo friendly. Namely rice and soy, in addition to some allergenic flavor enhancers (like MSG) and preservatives (like BHT). Fortunately, you don’t need these bad ingredients in your homemade dishes; instead you can use real foods like nutrient-rich vegetables, garlic, ginger and high quality meat for a delicious meal or appetizer. Add in … Continue reading

Mediterranean Vegetable Cake

New Paleo Recipe! Mediterranean Vegetable Cakes

Mediterranean cuisine is full of lots of flavorful ingredients that also happen to be good for you. Olives, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, and fresh vegetables are staples in this diet. Fortunately, we can make plenty of savory Mediterranean comfort-foods without any of the pasta, bread, or even rice you often find in those recipes. These easy-to-prepare Mediterranean Vegetable Cakes (25 minutes TOTAL for prep and cooking!) are made of a base of shredded parsnips and spinach, and then loaded up … Continue reading

kielbasa with broccoli and cabbage

New Recipe: German Kielbasa with Broccoli Slaw and Cabbage

This month's recipes are all going to be inspired by a different ethnicity. Last week was the Coconut Curry Chicken Stew with an Indian influence, and today's deliciousness has a German flavor to it. If you’re in the mood for something hearty and filling, this German Kielbasa with Broccoli Slaw and Cabbage is a unique twist on the usual sausage and sauerkraut. You can buy broccoli slaw (thinly sliced broccoli, carrots, and cabbage) where you buy the bagged salads, so it’s … Continue reading

Coconut Curry Chicken Stew

New Recipe! Coconut Curry Chicken Stew

I LOVE CURRY. I love it. When I used to be less tormented by restaurant food (or less aware of it, at least), one of my favorite things to do was go around and try all the curries from different restaurants, whether they were Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, or what. Curries are amazing Paleo dishes because all you have to do to make them Paleo is sub out coconut milk for any dairy and sub out the rice for cauliflower … Continue reading

Vanilla Pound Cake

New Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe!

As you may know, it's dessert month at Paleo Plan! And this week's recipe is Paleo style Vanilla Pound Cake, just like the kind my grandmother used to make (but without all the stuff that would make me feel terrible now ;) Traditional pound cake is definitely delicious, but it gets its name from the ingredients: a pound of butter, pound of eggs, and a pound of flour. Not Paleo friendly by a long shot. Fortunately, you can make a … Continue reading
