My hubby is and always was a jerky lover. When he finally joined me on the paleo journey one of the first things he asked me to make him was some jerky. I’ve made it quite a few times since then. This recipe is a mix of flavours that I always go back to.
This paleo beef jerky recipe is simple to make and is great to have on hand as a snack, whether you’re trying to up your protein, makes snacks that are cost-effective, or just need something convenient to take away camping. It’s also suitable if you are following the Whole30 or 21 Day Sugar Detox (21DSD).
This time of year many people are baking or making tasty little treats to gift or share with family for the festive season. It’s such a lovely thing to receive a handmade gift, something baked with love. That is, as long as it’s not filled with processed grains and sugars.
The festive season can be hard to avoid those foods that you have chosen to remove from your diet. For many people it takes an extra effort to resist. So receiving a girt made with real food ingredients shows the extra care and effort has been put into that gift. Here I have put together 10 recipes that would make great homemade gifts. Things I’d love to receive myself.
Chicken is the popular white meat in most households. Many of us prepare it the same way day in day out. Today, I wanted something a little different from my chicken. I wanted more flavour. Something that got the taste buds tingly, but not be too spicy for the family. So, I came up with my green chicken and sauce.
Chicken thighs really are a more succulent cut of chicken for this dish. While you could use breast meat if you prefer, it tends to be drier and not as flavoursome. I used to be one of those people who would only eat chicken breast meat. I have been converted though, and really do prefer using thighs more for baking or frying. This recipe would also be perfect to grill on the bbq as well.
The other day I shared my recipe for my Paleo Sweet Chilli Sauce, a great dipping sauce made with all paleo compliant ingredients. Well, here is the recipe that I served it with when I was asked along to a ‘bring-a-plate’ night with friends.
These paleo asian baked meatballs are quick and easy to make, and use common fresh ingredients in most paleo homes. The flavour is subtle and not over powering, so the kids can enjoy them too.
