18 Paleo Chowders to Warm Your Soul

With Paleo Grubs, you will discover delicious Paleo recipes, learn what you can and canno't eat, and get helpful tips so you can enjoy the paleo diet, not just survive it.

What is the Paleo Diet?

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the Paleo diet. Some write it off as a fad while others think it entails eating only meat. The Paleo diet attempts to bring our modern day eating habits back to Paleolithic times, when mankind was hunting and gathering rather than grocery shopping. It gets rid of foods that are byproducts of agriculture and industrialization, like wheat, legumes, refined sugar, and dairy. It focuses on meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. These foods put the body in a healthy state that could be the key to helping with modern diseases that come from an unhealthy lifestyle, like obesity, digestive problems, and more.

5 Good Reasons to Switch to a Paleo Diet

With so many diet plans being pitched to you on a daily basis, what makes Paleo the right choice? Here are the five best reasons to make the switch to a healthier you with Paleo:

Reason #1: Effortless Weight Loss

The approved Paleo foods work for you rather than against you, so your body is never fighting against what it just ate. Instead you’ll have increased energy levels, better sleep, and weight loss as a natural byproduct of an improved lifestyle.

Reason #2: It Can Help with Health Conditions

Once your body is back in alignment with the foods it was naturally designed to eat amazing things start to happen. Blood sugar stabilizes, blood pressure lowers, bad cholesterol goes down, good cholesterol goes up, stress levels decrease, mood improves, and on and on!

Reason #3: It’s Not Confusing

You won’t be faced with the challenge of keeping track of a point system, counting calories, counting carbs, or forced to buy brand name pre-packaged diet foods to succeed. There’s not a guru that has the secret under lock and key. It’s a simple way of eating clean and healthy.

Reason #4: It Will Always Be There for You

If you’re tired of yo-yo dieting and jumping from one trend to the next when a diet stops working, give Paleo a try. Try it for a month and you’ll likely stick with it once you see and feel the results. It’s a way of eating that will be the same ten years from now as it is today.

Reason #5: Tastiest “Diet Food”on the Planet

Maybe that’s why so many who try the Paleo diet stick with it and make it into a lifestyle. Once you master the right substitutes there’s few dishes that are off limits. You’ll find hundreds of delicious recipes you can start making today and you’ll never look back!

Cherry Tomatoes are a great way to add flavor and veggie-good nutrition to your salads, pasta dishes, meat dishes, and more. They’re easier than larger tomatoes because you can slice them in half without losing much juice, and they’re sweet! Check out these paleo cherry tomato recipes. Read more

Chicken legs are a great cut of meat. They’re fun to eat if you’re willing to get your fingers messy, because they have a built-in handle! How’s that for real food? You can also season your chicken legs so many different ways: simple herbs, citrus, sticky glazes, Asian flavors, and so many other options. So take a look at these Paleo chicken leg recipes and give some of them a try. I bet you’ll find a new family favorite! Read more

Celeriac, also referred to as celery root, is not the root of the celery stalk but a crazy-cool root all its own. These recipes use celeriac root in interesting ways, so if you’ve got it at your Farmer’s Market or in your CSA share, you have no excuses anymore! Read more

These paleo candy recipes will please kids and adults a like, and there are a wide range of candy types of choose from, including chocolates, fruity candies, licorice, and more. Read more

Looking for a dish that will impress Paleo and non-Paleo folks alike? Or maybe just need a new dish with new flavors for your rotation? These salmon cakes are exactly what you need. Super high in protein and packed with flavors that will make your tastebuds come alive, you’ll make this dish a regular in no time flat. Read more

How do you know if you’re really serious about Paleo? Check what’s in your coffee mug. If it’s coffee, you’ve still got a step to go before Paleo Mastery.

Read more

My younger cousin recently called me, in the midst of an existential food crisis. Ok, it wasn’t that serious, but by his tone, you’d have thought the world was about to end. “You’ve got to help me,”he said, rather glumly. “I invited this girl over for dinner Saturday night and I just realized I don’t know how to cook anything.”Ah, the problems of the 23 year old male species. Not sure if he didn’t think through his invite before making it or had simply never realized he didn’t know how to cook anything that required directions beyond “add water, heat in microwave.”But I told him to calm down -I had the perfect recipe for him. Totally simple to create, but would make him look like quite the chef. It was this, my recipe for Chicken Marsala. Read more

Spinach, like Brussels sprouts, lima beans, and beets, inspires strong emotions in people. There’s no in-between when it comes to spinach: you either love it or hate it. The one funny thing about spinach is that you will find people who will only eat it raw; and others who will only eat it cooked. Eating Paleo has helped me embrace the raw version because nothing works on raw baby spinach like a nice bacon salad dressing. But that’s a subject for another day! Today I’m here to share with you my favorite recipe for cooked spinach: a Paleo version of creamed spinach. Read more

Andouille sausage is a flavorful staple on Creole and Cajun dishes, and you can do much more with it than make a jambalaya\u2014of course, there are some jambalaya recipes on this list, because it’s too good to leave out. But there are also burgers, and collard greens, and dirty rice, and vegetable sausage soups. You really can’t go wrong with a good Andouille. Read more

Acai is one of those trendy foods everyone wants to get in on. The puree (most commonly used in recipes, along with the powder) is made from acai berries grown in the Amazon, and it’s very high in antioxidants. Many of these recipes are variations on the ever-popular acai bowl, but there are a few smoothie and other recipes included, too. All paleo-friendly. Enjoy! Read more

These Healthy Oven Baked Apple Fritters are Paleo because we’ve ditched the wheat flour and traded it for arrowroot and coconut flour. And, we’ve kept them healthy by baking them instead of deep-frying them. The result is a golden brown, crispy outside, doughy-apple center, great for a snack or a side dish! Read more

Sriracha is a heat only some can handle, but for those who enjoy it, there are so many ways to use this sauce. The following recipes combine sriracha with ingredients like chicken, honey, cinnamon, and cashews to make creamy dips and sauces, spicy drizzles, marinades, and more. If you’re a sriracha fan, you’re going to want to check out these paleo-friendly dishes. Read more

This Paleo recipe for lemon poppy seed baked donuts keeps me out of the drive-thru lane. Read more

Almost each and every year a new food is hailed as the next miracle health cure for everything ranging from fatigue to eczema to the miracle answer to weight loss. Read more

The humble white potato is a no no when it comes to following the Paleo philosophy. It’s often then a bit confusing to learn that not only is sweet potato allowed, but it is a much celebrated and promoted carbohydrate. Read more

Being constipated is no laughing matter, yet the unfortunate truth is many of us suffer from degrees of constipation on a regular basis. What is pretty shocking is that constipation is one of the most common digestive complaints in America, with chronic constipation affecting 15-20% of the population (1). Read more

Frittatas are a common feature at my family’s table. My husband makes a mean frittata\u2014and by “mean,”I’m talking about amazing. Pack energy into your meal by way of protein and vegetables, and you can customize them a thousand ways. Need some ideas? Read more

If we go back to the Paleolithic time, eating was a means to survive. A primal need to ensure that our DNA continued. We literally hunted and gathered out of complete need. Read more

It’s Sunday morning and I want pancakes. And I don’t just want plain pancakes. I want chocolate pancakes. And then I take it up another notch: I want chocolate hazelnut pancakes. Sounds decadent, right? But I’ve got the perfect Paleo recipe to save my morning. Read more

Try this almond butter and raspberry protein shake. It’s got all the things your taste buds want with all the things your body needs to stay happy and healthy. Read more

When I was first challenged to hunt down delicious, healthy, Paleo hummus recipes, I was a little bit stumped. I’d never eaten Paleo hummus before, and couldn’t imagine anything that could replace chickpeas and result in a great dip that resembled hummus. But boy, was I wrong! Turns out that vegetables like parsnips, cauliflower, pumpkin, roasted red peppers, jicama, sweet potatoes, and a dozen or so others can perfectly replace garbanzo beans for a fantastic, bean-free hummus dip that even the fiercest non-Paleo eater would enjoy. Let’s take a look. Read more

Bok Choy is a great hearty green with stems that are delicious too, and it’s awesome in stir-fries, sautés, and salads. Try some of these paleo bok choy recipes! I promise you’ll find a new favorite. Read more

Why is this called the Green Goddess Dip? Well, first of all, it’s green. So there’s that. But when you serve it to your friends, they will think you’re an absolute goddess (or god, take your pick) in the kitchen! Not only is it Paleo, it’s packed with crazy healthy stuff and has a super fresh taste that’s definitely a crowd pleaser. Read more

It is a confusing time to be alive, especially when it comes to the amount of information and especially misinformation, which is available to us. Every website, trainer, friend or family member has an opinion or advice and it is easy to get caught up in the noise surrounding the Paleo movement. Read more

Any diet, by definition, is a group of foods consumed for a certain period of time. A “diet”can be as simple as an average daily meal or it can also be part of a treatment program for specific medical conditions. The ketogenic diet, which allows someone to enter a state of nutritional “ketosis\u201d, has long been used in the treatment of epilepsy in children -but its benefits go way beyond this. Read more

Almond flour is one of my very favorite grain-free flours to work with, for many reasons. It has a fantastic flavor that’s slightly sweet but also fairly neutral, which means it works well for both sweet and savory recipes. It’s high in protein, making it nutritionally rich. It holds moisture well, but doesn’t add or subtract it dramatically, so it’s easy to work with. Best of all, it holds together fairly will with the right ingredients, so I love it in cakes and cookies. Check out some of these paleo almond flour recipes\u2014mostly sweet, but a few savory\u2014and open up that brand-new bag of flour to get baking! Read more

What’s better than a crunchy, fruity, creamy, satisfying breakfast? Fruit has always been one of my favorite breakfast foods because the sweet tanginess of fresh fruit wakes me right up, even before I have my coffee made. But of course a little fruit alone is far from enough food for my morning meal so this breakfast granola and berry parfait has become one of my new favorite go-to breakfasts. Read more

Cauliflower often gets a bad reputation as a “boring”vegetable, but don’t be fooled: It can make a showstopping entree when it’s cooked the right way. Read more

Cashews are my favorite nut. I get tired of almonds, I’m not a huge fan of peanuts (which are actually legumes and not nuts anyhow), and pistachios are sometimes just too much of a hassle with those little shells. But cashews\u2026.yum. Creamy and crunchy -I love these guys. Read more

If you grew up in a Polish household, you’re probably very familiar with cabbage rolls. They’re actually a pretty traditional food all over Europe and into the Middle East. I love them because they’re warm and filling and remind me of burritos, but they are Paleo-friendly, especially when you make them like this…Read more

Brussels sprouts are experiencing a rebirth right now. Everybody and their grandmother loves them and claims they looooooove Brussels sprouts. But just a few years ago these were probably the number one hated veggie by kids everywhere. Read more

If there’s one thing I missed when I started eating Paleo it was bread. I missed toast in the morning, slathered with butter and jam. I missed sandwiches stuffed with meat and cheese at lunch. I missed having a roll with a bowl of soup at dinner. There was no two ways about it: bread broke my heart. Read more

Cajun food is some of the best food on the planet if you ask me. It’s hot, spicy, flavorful, and richly varied, and the spice level can be adjusted to meet what you prefer (or what you can handle!). I’ve included a handful of different types of recipes here for Southern Cajun classics like shrimp and grits, gumbo, Cajun noodles, and other favorites. Some are super simple, while others are a little bit more complex. But they’re all delicious, they’re all Paleo, and they’re all highly recommended. Give ’em a try and find a new dinner favorite for your family tonight. Go on, check them out! Read more

If your only experience with salisbury steak is from an old school TV dinner or greasy spoon diner, it’s time to get a new perspective on it. My version features melt-in-your mouth beef smothered and covered in sauteed onions and gravy. Read more

Ice cream is my Achilles heel of healthy eating. At any given moment, I could eat a whole pint of Ben and Jerry’s -and probably more. And I’ll be honest -I used to do that on the regular. The weird thing is that, as much as I enjoyed eating my ice cream, I generally felt physically kind of horrible after. Read more

Too hot to turn on the oven? Need a quicker meal? Whatever your reason is, you’re here because you’ve come looking for awesome paleo-friendly stovetop recipes. Well, I’ve got ’em. From fruit crisp to breakfast hash to soup and side, check this list out and find a new favorite. Read more

Nut butter is a major staple in my home. We use it as a spread, a way to richen curries and other meals, an ingredient in salad dressings and sauces, and a smoothie booster. You can use any nuts or seeds you like for nut butters, and they can be flavored in a million ways. If you’ve never tried making your own, consider these recipes your own personal invitation to give it a try. From vanilla cinnamon cashew butter to pumpkin maple almond butter and beyond, I guarantee that you’ll be positively addicted in no time. Read more

There’s a rumor about the invention of the brownie. It goes something like this\u2026in 1893, Chicago hosted the World’s Fair. Dignitaries and visitors were coming from all over the world to see what Chicago had to offer. A very wealthy socialite named Bertha Palmer was in charge of the women’s committee and she wanted to make a splash. Read more

Carrots were my childhood nemesis. I’ve written about my childhood hatred of carrots before so I won’t go into it today, but here’s yet another recipe that helped turn my hostile relationship with carrots into a loving companionship. If you have someone who isn’t so keen on carrots, I highly recommend this recipe to change their minds. There’s nothing like a little maple syrup and prosciutto to make everything taste better! Read more

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the words “beef jerky\u201d? If you’re like me, you think of cowboys with big hats and sun-baked faces, all sitting around a campfire, their horses tied up behind them, chewing on their beef jerky. Read more

Asian cuisines and Asian-inspired dishes aren’t too difficult to adapt to the Paleo diet because they rely more heavily on meats and vegetables than on grains\u2014and where they do need grains, we can easily replace them. Before you head off on this list, you’ll probably want to make sure you have a few basic and common ingredients like fresh ginger, garlic, coconut aminos, and sesame oil. You’ll need them for many or most of these recipes! Read more

Everyone loves lemon bars. And if you don’t, I’m pretty sure one of these recipes will convert you. These healthier, paleo-friendly lemon bars are free of grains, dairy, and refined sugars. They’re sweetened with maple syrup, dates, and honey to perfectly balance their lovely citrus zing. Read more

We all know that fruit is one of the best on-the-go snacks you can ask for. Apples, bananas, pears -so easy to grab and stash in a purse or lunch box for later. But some fruit just isn’t made that way, like one of my favorites: pineapple. Sure, you could buy it in those little plastic cups but -I don’t know about you -I think fresh whole pineapple always tastes better. Besides, I don’t want the extra sugar in mine. Read more

The Autoimmune Protocol is a modified version of the Paleo diet that promotes the body’s healing from autoimmune diseases and attempts to reduce autoimmune reactions. Seeds, nuts, non-nutritive sweeteners (like stevia), and nightshades (like tomatoes and peppers) are not allowed. But instead of focusing on what you can’t have, think about what you can! And what you can have is these forty recipes featuring various vegetables, maple syrup, sweet fruits, lovely drinks, and tasty salads and stews that are healthy for your body and promote healing. Just keep in mind that treats, like on a typical Paleo diet, should be eaten only occasionally. They’re treats for a reason! Read more

Yogurt is tricky. It’s full of healthy and beneficial bacteria for your digestive health, so that’s great. But it’s also dairy, which means that it can’t be eaten by people with dairy sensitivities or those who believe that dairy, in general, should be avoided on the Paleo diet. Luckily, there are many ways to make yogurt that’s Paleo-friendly. Some of the recipes on this list make a traditional yogurt that’s cultured and full of probiotics, while others make a non-probiotic replacement that’s similar in texture and can easily stand in for yogurt. Give these versions a try! Read more

I’m always looking for new baked goods to bring to parties and coffees and gatherings of all kinds. Part of it is my competitive nature. I am absolutely dedicated to proving everyone wrong when they say eating Paleo is “boring”or “limited.”So I never want to bring the same treat twice, lest anyone think I’ve run out of new recipes.
