Paleo Beef Jerky

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).

10 Delicious Paleo Christmas Gift Ideas

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.

Paleo Sweet Chilli Sauce

Who else misses their condiments. For many it was the ease of opening a bottle of sauce and adding your favourite flavour to a meal. They have become something of a convenience in modern diets, but the idea of quality condiments is about adding extra flavour to plainer foods. I was never a big fan of sauces. I appreciate the taste of fresh foods and never really needed to add another layer. If I enjoyed them, they were usually the homemade variety. Hubby, on the other hand, really loved his sauces.

His favourite would have been sweet chilli sauce. Obviously, the bottled version is packed with a pile of sugars, preservatives, thickeners, and possibly artificial flavours or colours. When he finally joined me in making the switch to paleo, he did miss the sauces, but we came up with alternatives for most of his favourites. When I mentioned I was going to come up with a sweet chilli sauce with paleo compliant ingredients he was excited to say the least.

Paleo Raspberry Muffins

Now, I know that many in the paleo community don’t count paleo sweets or baking as actually being paleo. Our hunter gather ancestors certainly didn’t find a cacao protein ball on a magical tree, but….my personal belief is that we have evolved a lot from those hunter gather days and so have our food requirements.

Many don’t have the same opportunities of growing and foraging for their ingredients while juggling a busy family, living in the suburbs, while working around a high demand career…and thats ok!
