Thinking about trying a Paleo Diet? Or already on the diet but looking for some better or different paleo recipes? We've got you covered! Whether your a seasoned paleo meal prepper or someone trying a low-carb paleo diet, there are plenty of great paleo diet recipes just for you.
Many people who follow a Whole30 diet may be surprised at how similar it is to the paleo diet and vice versa. The two diets are very similar in that they both prohibit alcohol, grains, dairy, alcohol, and…
processed foods. The biggest difference is that Whole30 does not allow any added sugars while paleo only cuts out refined sugars. That means, for the most part, you can use a Whole30 recipe if you follow a paleo diet. However, most recipes include both designations so you'll see recipes like Paleo Whole30 Zuppa Toscana. If it doesn't have both in the title of the recipe, it's probably a safe bet that a Whole30 recipe is also paleo-friendly.
What does paleo look like? If you're on Yummly, it looks delicious! You can amazing interpretations of favorite chicken recipes like paleo orange chicken, low-carb fried chicken, and paleo chicken marsala. But there are a lot of creative bloggers out there so there are very inventive ways to deliver paleo chicken on a plate. Paleo piña colada chicken is a taste of the Caribbean while paleo pizza chicken is a twist on the Italian-American classic. But no matter what kind of chicken you're in the mood for, there's a paleo recipe for it.
While keto and paleo diets aren't interchangeable, there are many keto recipes that are paleo-friendly. For instance, a keto low carb Mongolian beef is probably paleo, too, because there are no refined sugars, legumes, or grains. But many recipes also call out whether or not a keto recipe is also paleo. You'll see things like kimchi soup with Whole30, pale, and keto in parentheses.
Paleo Instant Pot
Paleo pressure cooker recipes are plentiful on Yummly. You can find recipes like pressure cooker paleo egg salad or dinner recipes that are one-pot meals like paleo pumpkin chili or lemon-dill salmon and asparagus. You can even find make-ahead paleo breakfasts like pressure cooker chocolate chip banana bread. There are many ways to use your pressure cooker to make paleo meals to suit your taste and mood.
Paleo Slow Cooker
A slow cooker lends itself well to the paleo diet. Start your weeknight paleo meal-planning on Sunday with a simple slow cooker chicken that can turn into a paleo chicken salad for lunch. If you like beef, paleo BBQ beef brisket makes a great paleo dinner one night and tasty tacos the next night.
Paleo Breakfast and Snacks
Coming up with grab-and-go breakfast recipes on the paleo diet is easy, especially if you like eggs. Baked egg bites can be ready in 30 minutes or if your paleo plan includes bananas (bananas are ok in the paleo diet if your goals allow for them), you can have a chocolate breakfast smoothie in under 15 minutes. If you have a little bit more time, steer clear of oatmeal (oatmeal is not paleo-friendly) and try rosemary breakfast hash — it's a great accompaniment for eggs. For easy paleo snacks, you can try things like zucchini chips or baked kale chips — there are many ways to stay well-fed and satisfied on a paleo diet.
Finding the right veggie recipes that are paleo-friendly can be tricky because the vegetables have to be low carb. That means you want to avoid root vegetables. Veggies like Brussels sprouts and red peppers are great for savory meals. Cauliflower is also an incredibly versatile vegetable that works well on the paleo diet. Riced cauliflower works well as a sub for regular rice — paleo dirty rice uses cauliflower rice instead of white rice for a flavorful side dish. For a great greens-rich meal, kale salads can be incredibly filling. If you want to take your veggie intake further, you can use zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash in place of pasta for your paleo meal plan.
If you're just getting started with paleo recipes, it's a new kind of challenge, but Yummly can help you navigate all the different ways to create menus and do develop your weekly meal plan.
