These paleo recipes are sugar-free, flour-free, gluten-free, low-carb options for healthy and satisfying food. Because paleo doesn’t need to be penance. And we have proof in the form of these superlatively satisfying recipes, from chicken wings to fried rice, barbecue ribs to fudge brownies.
Beef Bone Broth
Remember the good old days when "bone broth" was simply called "beef stock"? Sigh. Whatever you call it, it's still simple to make. And still spectacular to taste.
Roasted Bone Marrow
Though traditionally a first course, bone marrow is sufficient enough to be both first course and last course. And maybe each course in between.
These are, quite frankly, as fudgy and rich as the real deal. Despite being flourless. Swear. Make a batch and see if anyone can tell the difference.
Gluten-Free Fried Chicken
Because we believe awesome fried chicken is a birthright for all, we bring you this gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly bird.
Texas-Style Barbecue Sauce
Ridiculously easy to make yet complex as heck in taste. Slightly sweet with only a hint of heat. Kid-tested and adult-approved.
Chicken Apple Sausage
Seriously, it's so easy to make your own sausage. Insanely easy. And holy heck, does it taste phenomenal. No meat grinder required.
Seared Duck Breast
An elegant and easy riff on steak au poivre that's made with duck breast rubbed with garlic and peppercorns and cooked to a magnificently rosy medium-rare.
Roast Chicken Thighs with Lemon
Shatteringly crisp skin. Tender, juicy meat. And pan juices you're gonna wanna sop up or soak up rather than let a drop go to waste.
Spicy Scrambled Eggs ~ Ande Bhurji
If you're the sort who likes things spicy, whether first thing in the morning or at the end of a crazy day, then we've got a quick and easy scrambled eggs recipe for you.
Homemade Almond Milk
There's literally no comparison between homemade almond milk and store-bought almond milk. None. No way. Nuh uh. Nope.
Cauliflower Fried Rice
Low-carb, paleo-friendly, and darn near indistinguishable from the real thing. Swear.
Apple Pear Sauce
Applesauce gone to finishing school. That's how we think of this apple pear sauce sweetened with maple syrup and seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg. Stovetop or slow cooker friendly.
Blackened Salmon with Pineapple Avocado Salsa
Healthy never tasted so good as this pan-seared salmon with a modest blackened heat balanced by a sweetly tangy pineapple, lime, and avocado salsa.
Skillet Eggs with Chorizo and Vegetables
This godsend of a quick weeknight recipe can be twerked, er, tweaked any which way—which is to say, your way.
We got nothing against the Larabars we've been noshing for years. Save for the crazy price tag. Here's a less expensive, more customizable alternative.
Peppery Chicken Wings
The intensity of the classic buffalo wing is tempered here, usurped by a deliciously, defiantly untraditional blend of beguiling spices.
Slow Cooker Chicken Stock
Making stock from scratch was never difficult. And it just became even easier thanks to this simple yet perfect slow cooker approach.
Paleo Chocolate Cake
This paleo chocolate cake also happens to be gluten-free and, even more importantly, it tastes magnificent enough to rival any other chocolate cake, birthday or otherwise. Go ahead. Taste it and see.
