The Best Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I was soooooooo wrong. If you’re not already on the Brussels Sprouts bandwagon, jump aboard, my friend. They are so simple to make – and it’s so simple to make them taste good – that I don’t know why everyone isn’t eating them all the time. I suspect that the traditional hatred of Brussels sprouts…

Spicy Mexican Cauliflower Rice

This is a classic dish in Mexico, but of course don’t call it Mexican rice in Mexico. They don’t call it Spanish rice either, it’s just “rice” or “red rice” thanks to its rather recognizable color. Cauliflower is an amazing vegetable because of its versatility. You can use it any number of ways and there…

Perfectly Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

The Brussels sprouts should be washed thoroughly and trimmed. Sometimes you can even find sprouts still attached to the stalk, in what looks like a long green log. This even fresher version of Brussels sprouts can be sliced off the stalk with a pairing knife. Then, depending on their size, the sprouts should be halved…

Collard Green Paleo Slaw (Super Slaw)

I never know what to do with collard greens, except of course boil them with pork. I don’t need to make the same old version of collard greens any longer – here, they add a lot of body to what would otherwise be a standard coleslaw. This recipe uses their crisp leaves to make a…

Maple-Glazed Root Vegetables (YUM!)

Serve this side dish alongside almost any protein, from pork tenderloin to roast chicken. Or maybe alongside a large bird (ah-hem, turkey) around the end of November.

Paleo Jicama Dill “Potato” Salad

Jicama, it turns out, has white flesh on the inside and can be enjoyed raw. It is juicy, crispy and sweet. And packed with fiber. Did I mention that? A huge source of fiber, and Vitamin C. A great low-calorie alternative to many potato dishes, jicama can even be cut into sticks and baked as…

9 Unbelievable Roasted Carrots

Carrots have a reputation for being healthy, and they’re a recommended vegetable on the Paleo diet. One way to make sure that they are cooked al dente is to roast them. That’s why we’ve found some of the tastiest roasted carrot recipes that will help you top up on the Vitamin A and other minerals…

12 Homemade Paleo Coleslaw Recipes

Coleslaw doesn’t have to weigh you down, after all, at its core it’s cabbage, which is good for you. But traditionally prepared coleslaw is going to have conventional mayonnaise in it, as well as refined sugar. It may also contain dairy, like sour cream or milk. With these Paleo coleslaw recipes you’ll be able to…

Simple Homemade Paleo Coleslaw

I prefer mine a little chunkier, so I diced up the two different types of cabbage instead of shredding them. If you’re REALLY looking for a classic slaw, I’d recommend shredding them so the whole dish is more uniform. This slaw is the perfect amount of tangy and sweet – the vinegar meshes with the…
