You can make this dish a lot easier by simply not coating the chicken. This will save in time and make the dish quite a bit healthier. The downside is that you won’t end up with lovely crispy chicken.

One of the best things about this dish is how well it is the next day. You can easily reheat it in either a frypan or microwave. Both will work just fine, frypan is the way to go if you don’t like using microwaves.

This dish is great by itself but if you are looking for something to go with it then you should try coconut rice. It’s super easy to make and the end result is incredibly tasty.

If you need a list of ingredients for this paleo friendly sweet and sour chicken, then you can find all you need to know right below.

1x 440g (15 ½ Oz) can Pineapple Pieces with unsweetened juice (Don’t drain)
1 onion, quartered
1 tsp. ginger, minced
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
3 Tbsp. honey
4 Tbsp. tomato Paste
2 Tbsp. coconut Aminos
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
500g (1.5 lb) chicken thigh, cubed
2 eggs
1 cup tapioca starch
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper

Coconut aminos is pretty important so if you're able to pick it up you will be glad you did. It's just a soy alternative since soy sauce is not allowed on the paleo diet.

You might think this dish is a bit light in vegetables, if this the case then feel free to add more. There are quite a few different vegetables you can add such as carrots, bok choy and much more.

That’s all I really have to say for this paleo sweet and sour chicken recipe. I really hope that it works out to be as great as it was for me.

Incredible Paleo Chicken Korma

Incredible Paleo Chicken Korma


In this video, I go through the few short steps to making a homemade paleo chicken korma curry. It is a fantastic dish that is packed full of flavour, certainly a must try for any curry lover.
Full Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-chicken-korma/

The standard recipe will feed about 4 people but if you’re looking to bulk it out a bit then adding some vegetables is a great way to achieve this. Just keep in mind vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes will require extra cooking time.

If you want the full list of ingredients for this curry, then you can find it below.

• 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
• 1 onion, diced
• 1 Tbsp. ginger, crushed
• 2 tsp. garlic, crushed
• 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
• 500g Chicken breasts, cubed
• ½ Tbsp. chili (Paste, powder or fresh)
• ¼ Cup ground almonds
• 400ml (13 ½ Oz) can coconut cream
• ½ Cup Chicken Stock

Spice Mix
• 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
• 1 tsp. garam masala
• 1 tsp turmeric, ground
• 2 tsp. cumin, ground
• 2 tsp. coriander seeds, ground

There are many reasons why you should make a curry paste from scratch but the main reason is so you know exactly what has gone into it. Many supermarket brands have a lot of additives in them to help extend shelf life, improve flavour and more. The downside is these additives are typically not paleo friendly and can do you more harm than good.

Cauliflower rice is the perfect side to go with this dish. It is light and well worth putting the extra time in to make. One thing I love about cauliflower rice is that it doesn’t tend to make you bloated like normal white rice.

If you’re looking for a side to go with this dish, then something like the easy cauliflower rice is perfect. It’s very much like rice but instead is incredibly light and won’t leave you feeling bloated.

I hope that his paleo chicken korma curry turns out as awesome as it did for me. If you have any feedback, tips or anything else that you would like to share then please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.

Incredibly Fruity Paleo Pear & Blueberry Crisp

Incredibly Fruity Paleo Pear & Blueberry Crisp


This video goes through the steps to making a deliciously fruity paleo pear and blueberry crisp. The dish involves a little bit of preparation but is totally worth the effort. Full Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-pear-blueberry-crisp/

The leftovers of this dish are well worth keeping and will reheat nicely the next day. They’re also pretty good cold if you don’t have the time or equipment to reheat them.

If you need a list of ingredients for this paleo recipe then you can find one right below.

5 Pears, cored and sliced
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. mixed spice
250g (9 oz.) Blueberries (Fresh or Frozen)

The Topping

2 1/2 cups almond flour
2 Tbsp. coconut flour
¼ Cup Honey
1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
3 Tbsp. Coconut oil.
Nuts if you prefer an extra crunch

You’re able to use either fresh or frozen fruit for this dessert. I prefer to use fresh but sometimes it can be hard to find fresh fruit for a good price or even have it be available. (Especially in the off seasons).

You can make a few changes to the topping to make it better suit your needs. For example, you can try using different spices or replacing the coconut oil with something like a paleo friendly butter.

I prefer to have this just on its own but there are a few options for extras. Unfortunately, most ice creams are off limits on the paleo diet but something like a coconut cream custard would work just as well.

Hopefully you don’t run into any troubles making this paleo pear and blueberry crisp and that it tastes as amazing as it did for me. If you have some tips, feedback, or something else that you would like to say then please feel free to drop a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com

Keto diet is the one thing that finally worked

Keto diet is the one thing that finally worked

The keto diet recommends foods high in fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrates. Having struggled with weight and weight-related health problems the majority of her life, author Jennifer Still was looking to shed some pounds and restore her health with the keto diet. After four years, the keto diet has not only helped Still lose weight, but it also changed her life in a variety of ways — here's how.

 

I've struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. About four years ago, I was looking to make a permanent change that would not only help me shed pounds but also restore my health without being unsustainable, harmful, or faddish. That's when I first discovered the ketogenic — or “keto” — diet, which prescribes a diet of high fat, moderate protein, and extremely low carbohydrate foods.

While it comes with its fair share of challenges — and I've definitely fallen off the wagon many times since that fateful day— the ketogenic diet is one of the healthiest and sustainable ways of eating I’ve ever tried. As an added bonus, I’ve shed over 50 pounds.

While it won't be right for everyone, I truly feel that the keto diet is a great choice not only for those who are significantly overweight, but also for anyone who’s looking to simplify and streamline their diet with real, tasty foods.

After four years strong on the keto diet, here’s how it changed my life.

1. I finally broke my addiction to sugar qoppi / Shutterstock

I used to eat a ridiculous amount of sugar on a daily basis. From obvious sources like candy and pastries to less overt but still harmful ones like sauces and savory snacks, I was on a constant sugar-high, always chasing my next “fix.”

The keto diet allows little to no sugar at all, and going cold turkey turned out to be the only thing that could break my addiction and restore my sanity.

2. I started eating really, really good food realfoodforlife/Instagram

I've always loved vegetables and conventionally “healthy” things, but admittedly, the majority of my diet was made up of quick, easy foods that came from boxes or were heavy on carbs but low on the nutritional scale.

With keto — while there are no real restrictions on what you can and can't eat as long as it falls within your macros (the amount of calories, carbs, protein, fat, etc. you should be eating per day) — the general idea is to start eating foods that are what they say they are instead of options that are made up of  a long list of ingredients you can't pronounce.

That means lots of fresh veggies, lean and fatty meats, eggs, cheese, and even butter. Fruit has also become part of my diet in moderation, though I stick with low-sugar varieties like raspberries and blueberries over higher carb options, such as pineapples and bananas.

3. I actually found a diet I could stick to for the first time in my life Elena Veselova / Shutterstock

As I mentioned previously, the ketogenic diet definitely isn’t for everyone, and there have been times that it wasn't even for me. Given that it’s somewhat restrictive, it can be difficult to maintain while eating out, on vacation, with small children, and/or a full-time job.

While I’ve spent stints doing the Whole30, the paleo diet, and more general “clean eating,” I always come back to keto to reset my body and mind and get back on track when my nutrition seems like it’s veering out of control.
