Simply Delicious Paleo Tuna Cakes

Simply Delicious Paleo Tuna Cakes


In this video, I go through the steps to making some delicious paleo tuna cakes. They’re so easy and incredibly tasty.
Full Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-tuna-cakes/

These can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge or freezer. Whenever you need them just grab out a serving and cook from frozen. It’s important that you do not defrost the patties otherwise they may fall to bits.

If you need the full list of ingredients for this tuna cake recipe, then you can find them below.

• 210g (7 ½ Oz) can tuna
• 300g (10 ½ Oz) Sweet potato
• 1 egg
• Zest from 1 lemon
• 1/2 cup almond flour
• ½ tsp. dill
• ¼ tsp. sea salt
• ¼ tsp. black pepper
• 3-4 tsp coconut oil or olive oil

You can eat these tuna cakes alone without any extras however if you’re feeling hungry then a green salad works perfectly on the side. If you’re super hungry then sweet potato fries is the next best thing.

Quite a few condiments go well with these patties such as paleo friendly mayonnaise, tartar sauce or even a good ketchup. It just comes down to what you prefer.

Placing the patties in the fridge for 30 minutes should help them hold together when you go to fry them. However, I find these are fine without needing to place them in the fridge.

One great thing about this patty recipe is that the mix is already cooked before you fry it off. The whole point of frying is to help crisp them up and get the centre hot.

Now I hope that this video has shown you how easy it is to make paleo tuna cakes without a huge amount of effort. If you have any feedback or have a tip that you would like to share, then please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com

Belly Warming Paleo Chorizo & Sweet Potato

Belly Warming Paleo Chorizo & Sweet Potato


In this video, I go through the steps to making an incredible paleo chorizo and sweet potato side dish. Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-chorizo-sweet-potato/

Even though it's better suited as a side dish you can still have this is as a delicious main meal.

One of the best things about this dish is how well the leftovers will keep. Simply store in the fridge until needed and reheat either over the stove or in the oven.

If you’re looking for something paleo friendly to go with this dish then I highly recommend looking at either some beef or chicken dishes. This side is a great replacement for your typical side of chips.

If you need a list of all the ingredients that I used in this recipe then you can find it right below.

• 1 onion, diced
• 2 chorizo sausages, sliced
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
• 1 tsp. paprika
• 2 cups chicken or beef stock
• Salt and pepper, to taste
• 2 green onions, sliced (To serve)

You’re able to switch out the seasonings if you have a better idea of what would work for you. For example, some people love the flavour that a good Cajun seasoning will bring.

When it comes to chorizo most of them should be paleo friendly but it’s always best to check just in case they’re not. Any good butcher should be able to tell you otherwise look at the ingredient list on the package. (If buying them pre packaged)

If the vegetables in this dish isn’t enough then you can always add extra. Bell peppers, greens, and even broccoli would work well in this dish.

I really do hope that this paleo chorizo and sweet potato dish works out to be as great for you as it did for me. If you have any feedback, tips or anything else that you would like to mention then please feel free to leave a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com

The Basics Around The Paleo Diet

The Basics Around The Paleo Diet

Maybe you’ve heard of some people “eating like cavemen” and shudder to think what kind of foods they take in. But that’s unfair to immediately conclude that Paleo diet is eating like a crude caveman. First of all, let's know what Paleo diet means? The word paleo comes from the word Paleolithic that was ended for around 10000 ago. It is called Paleo because the foods or let us say lifestyle in this kind of diet are usually found during the Paleolithic era. This is also called as the diet of hunter gatherer, caveman, or the stone-age civilization. The main principles of this diet are based on its name. During this period, people would usually eat foods that are common around them. These foods are fish, nuts, vegetables, fruits like berries and seeds. Scientists today then consider the people during the Paleolithic era strong and healthy; they were deemed fit to cope with the ravages of those times. It enabled them to go around frequently and for long periods. More so, Paleo people were learned to not have diseases such as cancer, heart problems, or obesity. They are fit and full of energy. Do you know the reasons behind that? Of course, that is due to the kind of food they eat and lifestyle they had.
If you are into Paleo diet, the foods that you eat are vegetables particularly the root vegetables except or potatoes or even the sweet potatoes. The diet consist a lot of fruits, almonds, and walnuts as sole food or ingredients in the Paleo dishes. You can also include peanuts as well as cashews on your diet. For some, they go for berries like raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries because of its effectiveness that many people already proved it. While there are foods that you shouldn't eat, foods like parsnips, carrots, rutabagas, or the organ meats such as kidneys and liver must be increased.
If you are a person that is in diet particularly this Paleo diet one, you must not eat pasta, string beans, noodles, bread, snow-peas, dairy products as well as sugar. This is the routine that you should follow when in diet such this. When you wake up during morning, you scramble some eggs then you can fruits together with the yoghurt. You can also add coffee or tea on you meal and have a little amount of milk on it. For your lunch, you can just have with you a vegetable salad with dressing on it. Lastly, for your dinner have a refreshing and mouth-watering grilled fish, steak, or chicken with green vegetables of your choice.
The list of foods given here are all low in carbohydrates but higher in protein since all the carbs that you are going to eat are all from vegetables. Moreover, you must need an animal fat because this would be your main source of your energy. For those who are asking if the Paleo diet is healthy and effective, well, the answer is YES! Why? Paleo diet includes trimming down unnatural foods or the processed foods that are highly cooked. People on this diet would just stop taking in too much carbohydrates and would just rely on fats or proteins to keep them going. If you are committed enough on this kind of diet, time will that your food cravings for salty foods and sweets will just stop.
You should take note first that when you are into kind of diet, don't be too hot in achieving the kind of body fit you want. But one thing is for sure you can have the result that you wish in a matter of time. You just need to follow the Paleo diet program.

Incredible Paleo Chili Con Carne

Incredible Paleo Chili Con Carne


In this video, I make a delicious paleo chili con carne that is so easy to quickly get prepared and cooking. It’s the perfect dish to have on a cold winter's day or even in summer if you just love the heat.
Full Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-chili-con-carne/

This dish is fine just by itself but if you’re looking for extras then I recommend some cauliflower rice or mash. These are both really delicious and go well with a good chili. Guacamole is also a fantastic addition if you have the time to make it.

One great thing I love about this dish is how well it will reheat. Make sure you store it in either the fridge or freezer in an airtight container. Whenever you need it simply reheat so it’s nice and hot.

If you’re after an ingredient list then you can find the full list of ingredients below.

• 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
• 1 Onion, diced
• 2 tsp. garlic cloves, crushed
• 2 carrots, large dice
• 1 Red bell pepper, diced
• 500g (17 ½ Oz) Beef Mince
• 1 Tbsp. red chilies, diced
• 2 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
• 2x (800g/28 Oz) cans diced tomatoes
• 1 tsp. paprika
• 2 tsp. cumin
• 2 tsp. marjoram
• Salt & Pepper

If you don’t like your food being too hot, then you might want to reduce the amount of chili in the dish. I found it quite mild at 1 Tbsp. so you might want to add more if you love the heat otherwise reduce this by half for a very tamed chili.

Beans are not considered paleo friendly so make sure you don’t add these if you’re sticking to a strict version of the paleo diet.

I hope this delicious paleo chili works out for you as well as it did for me. If you have any troubles, feedback, or have a variation that you would like to share then please leave a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com

Modern Humans Fit To Go On Paleo Diet?

Are Modern Humans Fit To Go On Paleo Diet?

IMG_5365

Can humans of today really go on a diet that was followed by cavemen thousands of years ago? This is one question that’s always posed upon modern day healthy eating experts. But yes, there is a sound backup study that modern humans can do just that and start on paleo dieting. Why? Well, there hasn’t been much change in the human genome for the last thousands of years. The only thing that changed that contributed much to our woes is the fact that we have been eating the wrong type of foods. The foods that we have been growing in farms and have been consuming may provide convenience but they are actually slowly killing our bodies.
Going back to the original question, are the humans of today ready for the caveman diet? The caveman diet or Paleolithic diet is actually a return to what the body is meant to eat. Most of our modern diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart problems and kidney problems are borne out of our unwise food choices.
The concept of paleo dieting is not actually going back to how our caveman ancestors actually ate. The concept is to avoid the foods that were never eaten during their time. Refined grains, milk, breads and other sweets were unheard of during the Paleolithic and the Neolithic eras. That is why it is just a return to what is healthy to the body and how the body can get a lot or more from the non-toxic food that are good for the body.
What is going for the modern human is that there is a better understanding on the concept of paleo dieting. Today, the modern human knows that there should be a balance in anything that he is going to eat. While meat is encouraged in paleo dieting, it is also important that the fruits and vegetables remain as staples. This will ensure that the body is getting the right nutrients that are going to be lost when dairy and other grains are taken off from the diet.
Paleo diet is a logical diet framework that is fit for the modern human. It is not a re-enactment of the food choices of the caveman and how it was prepared back then. Eating the foods that the body is designed to eat is the primary principle behind paleo diet. That makes the modern human equipped and truly fit to go on a paleo diet.
Paleo diet, though, does not exist in a vacuum. It needs to be supplemented with physical activity just like how the caveman lived. A caveman relied on his strength to move, move things and to do combat. He used his strength to gain advantage against opponents. That is why the food that he should be consuming should allow the caveman to expend energy, lower the blood sugar levels and to efficiently expend the energy that he gets from the food that he eats.
What makes paleo diet different from any other low-carbohydrate diets is the fact that it is not restricted to counting the calories or counting the carbohydrates. There is nothing to count on this diet. The idea is that every non-toxic food is fair game and could be consumed. The body is able to cope with the new lifestyle easily as long as the human is able to psychologically shift the mindset from the traditional eating to the paleo diet.
The paleo diet is not a magic bullet that will solve everything. It is a diet prorgam that can help humans make most of their food. It is a recreation of how humans should eat and the kind of food that should be eaten.

Paleo Spicy Meatballs in a Fresh Tomato Sauce

Paleo Spicy Meatballs in a Fresh Tomato Sauce


In this video, I make some delicious paleo spicy meatballs with a fresh tomato sauce. It’s a simple but great combination where each ingredient complements each other.
Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-spicy-meatballs/

Since we need to make both the meatballs and the tomato sauce there is quite a few ingredients to this dish. With that said it’s totally worth making if you love healthy fulfilling dishes. The full list of ingredients can be found right below.

500g (17 ½ Oz) ground beef
1 Egg
1 Onion, diced
2 tsp. crushed garlic
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground turmeric
2 tsp. chili powder
Salt & Pepper

Tomato Sauce

1 onion, peeled & diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. ground cloves
4 cups freshly diced tomatoes

If you’re unable to get your hands on fresh tomatoes or they’re way too expensive then you can instead use tinned tomatoes. If possible try to use fresh ingredients as much as possible for the best results.

If you want something to go with these spicy meatballs then some zucchini pasta is perfect. This is super easy to make but you will need a piece of equipment called a spiralizer.

One thing you need to make sure you do is work the meatball mix a ton before rolling it into meatballs. The more you work the mix the more it will stick together and not fall apart. Baking the meatballs is also a great way to prevent them from falling apart.

Adding a bit of chili to the tomato sauce will make this dish quite spicy. It’s perfect for anyone who loves a bit of heat in their meals.

I really do hope that you enjoy these paleo spicy meatballs and that they cook out to be as great as they were for me. If you have some feedback, tips or anything else then feel free to leave a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com

Health Problems Which Paleo Diet Could Solve

Top Health Problems Which Paleo Diet Could Solve

IMG_5223

Paleo diet is not only good to lose weight. The mechanics of the diet can also help people reduce risks of certain diseases. The manner of choosing the right food groups as eaten by our ancestors could unlock the mystery why there are disorders that exist today which are absent before. Paleo experts believe that most of the health problems that exist today are linked to the kind of foods that we eat. The foods that we eat are full of sugar and salts that could cause a lot of health problems. Eliminating some of the foods by sticking to a paleo diet could help people alleviate some of the risks and finally live longer and fuller life.
Diabetes. The elimination of sugars and certain grains from the diet will help lower the blood sugar levels and even maintain it. Diabetes is a chronic disease that can damage the kidney, eyes and even lead to amputations. People lose limbs as a result of gangrene due to poor blood circulation as part of the health risks posed by diabetes. Diabetes is the result of poor sugar absorption in the body. The body often develops insulin resistance where the sugar is not properly processed by the insulin due to a number of reasons. Diabetes sufferers could get a lot of help from a paleo diet because it lowers the sugar absorption. The less sugar means there would be lower blood sugar levels.
Hypertension.
Hypertension can be exacerbated by consuming too much sodium. One of the facets of the paleo diet is the non-consumption of processed foods. Processed foods often have lots of sodium which retains water. When the body retains more water it gives the body a harder time to lower the blood pressure. Although there is a debate whether a paleo diet can really bring hypertension down because of increased cholesterol intake, there is yet a solid study to purport that cholesterol indeed causes high blood pressure. There is actually a deeper reason why high blood pressure exists and the cholesterol levels are mere bystanders that may contribute to the situation. The writing remains on the wall as the jury is still out whether high cholesterol and if there is indeed a distinction between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol.
Immune system boost. One of the problems of the body is its inability to take care of inflammation. Inflammation is one of the reasons why the immune system is getting impaired. An impaired immune system means that the body is more susceptible against microbes and even infections. The increased consumption of Omega 3 fatty acids helps the body fight against inflammation and indirectly help boosts the immune system.
Acne. Acne is one of the most surprising health problems that are being addressed by a paleo diet. The increase in Omega 3 fatty acids together with probiotics, anti-oxidants and selenium can help control the inflammation and to fight the bacteria that can cause acne. Acne is not uncommon to humans as 80 percent will suffer some degree of acne once in their lives.
There are lots of health benefits in eating paleo. It is important that you are able to consult a paleo diet-friendly physician to give you the best options and better explain to you the benefits and the mechanics of the paleo diet. It is a revolutionary way of losing weight and it could help you in the long run.

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

Simply Delicious Paleo Pumpkin Soup

Simply Delicious Paleo Pumpkin Soup


In this video, I go through the few steps to making a delicious paleo pumpkin soup. It’s incredibly easy and is packed full of flavour. Full Recipe: https://paleocrashcourse.com/paleo-pumpkin-soup/

You can have this soup as an appetiser to a main meal or even as a lunch. If you end up with some leftovers make sure you keep them as they will reheat nicely. It’s the perfect healthy lunch you can take to work and reheat. It's also a great way to avoid all those non-paleo temptations for lunch.

Whilst this soup is quite basic it’s incredibly delicious. Further down in the description I go into some tips and variations that you can do with this paleo friendly pumpkin soup.

If you need the list of ingredients that I used in this recipe, then you can find them below.

• 1 onion, diced
• 1 tsp. crushed garlic
• 2 Carrot
• 6 Cups Pumpkin, cubed
• 1 tsp. ground cumin
• 1 tsp. paprika
• 2/3 Cup Coconut milk
• 4 Cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
• Salt & Pepper

I use a stick blender or also known as an immersion blender to blitz this soup until smooth. If you don’t have either of those then you can use a bench blender but you may need to do it in batches.

Some people prefer a sweeter soup, if you’re one of these people then you can do this by either using honey or apple. Adding apple will change the soup quite a bit but worth it if you want to experiment a little.

Chili can be added if you’re looking for something with a bit more bite. Simply add this when you’re cooking the onion and garlic.

I really hope that this paleo pumpkin soup cooks out to be as good as it was for me. If you have some variations, tips or something else that you would like to share then please feel free to leave a comment below or over at paleocrashcourse.com
