Keto Friendly

We've called our Keto section "friendly" as our recipes can suit many different macro requirements. (The 3 macronutrients carbohydrates, protein & fat).  The basic guideline for a keto eating plan usually requires a 70% fat intake.  This amount can vary depending on what the best macro calculation is for you.  Most of our recipes are lower than 70% in fat calculation, however if you choose to follow the higher fat protocol you can add some healthier fats to any of these recipes.  

Please note: our keto recipes are also suitable for other diet protocols so we are showing the total carb count in the nutritional data.  You can work out your "Net Carbs" by taking the fibre component off the total carb component.

2 Serves. Chimichurri is a delicious South American sauce that goes with most proteins. Its flavour is punchy and robust and adds some green goodness to your dishes.
2 Serves. The prawns have a quick lime, garlic & chilli marinade & only take minutes to cook. Serve in lettuce cups for a low-carb option, or add in some of our homemade (or store-bought) almond tortillas.
2 Serves. From the new Eat Clean Dirty Food recipe e-book. Deliciously easy takeaway & fast food recipes all wheat & dairy free. NOTE: Low Carb, Paleo & Keto friendly swap out rice for cauliflower rice. Swap out prawns with any other protein.
Marinated salmon is an easy & healthy dinner as the flavours absorb quickly. This entire dish is a really quick cook, however, if you can leave the salmon marinate for at least 30mins the flavours will infuse beautifully. TIP: Swap out for your favourite vegetables, just keep in mind cooking times for harder choices. Optional to add in a small portion of brown rice or quinoa for a bigger meal. TIP 2: For soy free, swap out tamari for coconut aminos & only add 1/2 the honey.
This spiced yoghurt is delicious & will match most proteins. The chicken does require at least 30mins marinating time if you want the flavours infused. A great recipe to prep the night before so you are guaranteed the flavour hit. TIP: Chicken can be sliced for a quick stovetop cook. Serve with any preferred vegetables, plus you can swap out cauli rice for any type of rice.
Cauliflower is a great carrier food. Meaning the flavour profile is low, so you can add lots of different flavours and it will taste great. We've served these fritters with a soft boiled egg, avo & chilli flakes. However, almost anything goes, bacon, guacamole, roasted tomatoes, roasted veggies... the list goes on. TIP: Cauli does hold water - see our notes on how to improve your fritters shape.
Egg Roll or Omelette Rolls are so quick and easy in the mornings. You can fill them with so many different things - goat's cheese, tomatoes, leftover roasted veggies, herbs etc..
Easy Peasy Cake in a Mug & of course it's full of healthy ingredients! TIP: Most of the carb count here is from the maple syrup, swap it out for a different sweetener if you need too.
Need a cake, chocolate, or cake & chocolate fix? This mug cake comes in at 246 calories, and is full of healthy ingredients! TIP: Most of the carb count here is from the maple syrup, swap it out for a different sweetener if you need too.
Fritters are the bomb! The roasted tomatoes are definitely worth doing as they create a gorgeous sauce that matches the dish so deliciously. TIP: Tapioca/Arrowroot flour can be swapped out with chickpea, quinoa or buckwheat flour.
2 Serves. We love veggie overload & we always add lots of flavour to make your dish delish. This one is 2 serves & the flavours will continue to infuse for another meal the following day. We’ve used Thyme as the herb to flavour the entire dish. It’s quite a strong herb so you’ll only need a small amount, and if you prefer you can swap it for another favourite herb. TIP: If you are looking for a carb boost add a small portion of brown rice or quinoa and mix it through the cauli rice – so yummy.
This is one of those dishes where you want to lick the plate clean, so many delicious flavours that all just work beautifully together. Tip: You can use other veggies on the side but we think the garlic and lemon flavours are the perfect flavour combo with this dish. Hint: You can leave out the white wine and just use extra stock. Note: We used semi-dried tomatoes but if using sun-dried you can soak them in the stock while cooking the chicken.
That little hit of ginger in the mushrooms takes this dish to new heights, so very yummy and very nutritious! Lots of good fats and healthy greens to get you started for the day.
An iconic flavour combination that just works, with added fibre and antioxidants it's a great way to start your day! Tip: When using chia seeds it's a good idea to soak them first, we keep a small jar in the fridge with chia gel to save doing it every time. Hint: The amount of ice cubes you use will depend on whether you use fresh or frozen fruits. We used all frozen fruit so didn't need to use any.
A good shot of espresso coffee in this smoothie to start your day! By adding coconut yoghurt you're getting the benefits of probiotics for good gut health. Tip: We added a scoop of our favourite vanilla protein powder but this is optional.
We never tire of those authentic Mexican flavours and this dish has it in spades! One-pan means minimal clean up too so we think it's going to be one of your favourites too. Tip: Want it a little spicier? Add some chilli powder in with the other spices. Hint: Don't leave off the yoghurt, once you add the lemon juice it tastes so much like sour cream! Note: Edgell now have black beans in a 100g satchel that are ready to serve, we love them!
You don't need to make the sauce for this burger stack but trust us, you want to make this sauce! You will need a stick blender to make this amount but it is very easily multiplied to make a bigger batch. It will store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Tip: Switch the salad up to include whatever you like. Hint: An egg would be a pretty awesome addition to this burger.
Vegan cheese is super tasty and extremely versatile! The picture just shows one serving suggestion using fresh cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes and basil. This basic recipe for one serving can easily be made into 3 variations. Solid style for a cheese ball etc. Cream Cheese style for spreading or dipping and a Cheesy sauce. Tip: The prep time of 15 minutes includes the blending but the cashews do require soaking overnight. Also, see notes on recipe regarding blenders. Hint: See notes on recipe for variation ideas.
Salad bowls are an awesome way to get your extra veggie intake for the day. This delicious one is served with our gorgeous lime & honey dressing. TIP: You can pan-fry, grill, steam or bake the salmon.
2 Serves. Chickpea Fettuccine is a great gluten & wheat free alternative to pasta, and it’s one of our favourites. The sauce is vegan, delicious & filling. Plus, the dish only takes around 15mins to make. TIP: Add in some cayenne or chilli for a spicy hit. It's delicious!
Great natural flavours in this san choy bau without the usual bottled sauce flavours added. This recipe is designed for our AIP members with no chilli or nuts. It’s fabulous! TIP: We’ve used an oriental mushroom mix with shitake & oyster mushrooms in this recipe as it goes beautifully with the asian flavours. However, you can use regualar field mushrooms, they’ll just take a little longer to cook as the orientals are very delicate.
This tasty little dish is our take on Greek Souvlaki. TIP: If your diet allows, you can swap out the coconut yoghurt for Greek yoghurt if preferred.
Most people love a good Caesar salad. This one is nicely balanced with a variety of ingredients, and it’s a great meal for keto lovers. TIP: Paleo & Dairy Free - we’ve got 3 variations of Caesar dressing in our sauces & dressing section. Options with coconut yoghurt & mayonnaise that can match other dietary requirements. This one is our no-mayo dressing.
The flavours of chilli, lime and garlic, a tender chicken thigh and a garlicky mayo served on a delicious Paleo roll with fresh salad. Too good!
This dish will fill you up, however if you’re feeling a little extra hungry team it with some more protein. i.e. another egg, smoked salmon or bacon. TIP: Makes 3 small fritters or just one larger one.
Fresh fish is always lovely baked in the oven and when it's topped with a crunchy, cheesy topping it's even better! We served it with creamy cauliflower mash. The steamed greens are optional, it is equally good with a fresh salad.
Fresh & Delicious! Keep this recipe in your favourites! TIP: Use a tender cut of beef for a quick cook. Herbalicious: Fresh herbs give Thai salads their gorgeous flavour. Change them up between coriander, mint or (Thai) basil depending on what's available. Boost: Add in some rice noodles if you want to make this a bigger meal.
We love one pan dishes & this one is delish. The only extra step is the gremolata & you are going to love it. TIP: Basil can be swapped out with most soft herbs. Parsley is always a great herb for gremolata. Also, the little cherry tomatoes on the vine look great, however you can use a few loose cherry or grape tomatoes as well.
This easy dish is cooked on one pan in the oven. Gorgeous lemon, garlic & thyme flavours. TIP: We used lemon thyme which is much milder than savoury thyme but either one will taste great. However, savoury thyme is much stronger so you may want to use a little less. Also, the little cherry tomatoes on the vine look great but you can use a few loose cherry or grape tomatoes as well.
Gorgeous flavours in this dish. Cabbage pancakes are easy and you can team them with many different proteins. Adding fresh herbs isn’t necessary, however we always love adding them as they are packed with so much green love & are so delicious. TIP: Use a tender cut of beef for a quick cook.
It's the old dip and crumb method for these guys but they're seriously worth it. They are best eaten right away but can be easily reheated. Tip: You can add whatever herbs and spices you like.
Hot or cold, for a meal, lunchbox or snack, you choose! These are taking plain egg muffins to the next level yum! Tip: The macros have been worked out on the ingredients we used but you can change them to suit what you have on hand. Hint: If dairy is not an issue some feta or goat's cheese is great in these.
A dreamy creamy satay sauce may change the way you think of salad forever. TIP: Choose to use all of the herbs mixed together or just add the ones you prefer. Also, if you like your satay hot add some more chilli to the sauce.
A super easy meal put together in no time at all! Classic Asian flavours with a big hit of chilli. Hint: We love a good hot chilli but if you're not a fan just use 1/2 a milder long red chilli.
Bruschetta is one of those classic dishes that never gets old but it's not usually on the menu when you're following a keto diet. We've put it back on the menu with this keto-friendly microwave bread. Yum! TIP: We love Niulife balsamic vinegar for this recipe.
Crispy and delicious! They're also very versatile, fit into any meal of the day and they're totally portable, so think lunch box or picnic basket! Hint: Serve with an egg, small side salad or your favourite veggies. Tip: Don't have fresh herbs? You can use dried but be sure to only use 1/4 tsp of each.
This burger uses our almond meal roll with a simple beef pattie and fresh salad. The nett carbs come in really low for this one. TIP: This burger doesn’t need sauce, but if you're looking for a healthy option we have some awesome homemade ones is our Dressing & Sauces section.
A most traditional hummus except we’re using mostly water instead of oil for blending.
Bread is one of the things most missed on a keto or paleo diet. This roll doesn't pretend to replace 'normal' bread but we think it's pretty amazing. Note: This recipe makes 1 medium-sized bread roll, perfect for a burger but is easily made into 2 or 3 smaller rolls for use as a side over 2 or 3 days. Tip: If you make them, the extra rolls are best stored in a brown paper bag and can be freshened up in the oven.
Simple, quick and delicious. Everyone has time for an omelette in the morning! Tip: You are most definitely not limited to the vegetables we have used, any quick-cooking veg or leftover meat will work too! Hint: We used fresh thyme for a lovely fresh herb hit but you can use whatever you have on hand. If using dried herbs just a pinch will be plenty.
Cinnamon is one of those spices that is just as nice in a savoury dish as it is in sweet ones. It pairs beautifully with this salmon and the buttery flavour of the ghee if you decide to use it just adds to the flavour. Note: For AIP use coconut oil.
Simple, light and delicious. The flavours in this dish complement the salmon so beautifully. Tip: You can use whatever vegetables you like, keeping in mind if you do so then the macros will change.
When you are used to eating clean it can be hard to include enough fat when starting on a Keto diet. We love this smoothie for breakfast, it provides fuel for the day and it tastes amazing! Tip: It is quite thick so you can add a little water until it is the desired consistency.
Seriously though, breakfast, lunch or dinner! A delicious one pan dish full of good protein that tastes incredible. Tip: Goat's cheese is dairy although it is much kinder to the digestive system. We love Meredith Dairy soft goat's cheese. Hint: Vegan cheese could work equally as well in this dish.
A sweet and zesty slaw that works well alongside your favourite protein but is equally as nice on it's own! Hint: We teamed this slaw with the Curried Yoghurt Chicken and it works beautifully.
It's light, fresh and zesty, it's a one-pan dish, but best of all, it's incredibly tasty! Hint: We served this with fresh greens but it's equally as good with mash or roasted vegetables.
A colourful, low calorie, high protein salad that delights the senses. Yum!
There are some out there that might think this is a very unusual flavour combination but trust me, it works! Summer on a plate.
The goodness of Kimchi teamed up with a healthy version of fried rice using cauliflower. Super healthy for your gut and bags of flavour! Tip: You don't need the cucumber and tomatoes but it adds a lovely freshness to the dish and to make it vegan you can leave off the egg. Hint: If you don't like the spiciness of Kimchi you can substitute with Sauerkraut
Curry in a hurry! This dish is super easy and super quick to make but that doesn't mean you compromise on flavour because this dish has plenty of it! The rice is just a serving suggestion, If you would like to keep it low carb the curry is gorgeous just on it's own or with cauliflower rice.
We love citrus flavours with lamb! This dish marries them so well and the spices just bring it all together so beautifully. Tip: If you don't like hazelnuts, slivered almonds work just as well or leave the nuts out all together.
A light and creamy scramble, perfect for a quick and easy meal any time of the day. You can use whatever herbs you have on hand, we used sage, parsley and thyme. Goat's cheese has less lactose, lower sodium, smaller and easier to digest fats, and similar if not higher vitamin and mineral levels as cows cheese. Hint: The pine nuts are optional but delicious! They are included in the macros.
Fresh & delicious. Full of gorgeous herbs. We recommend using all 3 herbs, but feel free to just use your favourites. TIP: Want it spicier? Add some fresh bird's eye chillies into the marinade / dressing.
Delicious bite-sized omelette rolls with a delicious flavour hit! Vegetarian or following a PCOS diet? Just leave out the ham or bacon, it's still a seriously delicious dish!
If you're craving an Italian food fix these delicious zucchinis it will make you feel way better than pizza or pasta. Tip: Liquid may pool in the zucchinis during cooking. Follow the notes below for a delicious ending.
Smoked salmon, avo, fritters…it’s as delicious as it looks. TIP: The dressing is not compulsory with this dish, but the lemon & garlic with the smoked salmon give it such an extra flavour boost.
We love bread for one. This bread is great for soups, sandwiches or burgers. TIP: Baking this free-form is much easier than in a ramekin (as per the photo). If you do want to use a ramekin make sure it’s greased really well and let the roll sit for a few minutes before removing as it may stick.
A high protein, low carb meal for any time of the day. They are great as a lunchbox snack too. Tip: Feel free to add any other ingredients like capsicum or even leftover veggies. Note: We use Fratelli Beretta prosciutto for this recipe as the only ingredients are pork and salt, it is not processed and has no added nitrates.
2 Serves. Delish "Pasta" dish! We've used Eco Organics Chickpea Fettuccine for this dish. There are a few varieties of gluten-free & wheat-free "pastas" in this range, but this is a definite fave!
A delicious salad which is so easy to make. TIP: Most of our dishes are moderate serves. However, you could boost this dish with a larger serving of chicken or a small serving of brown rice or quinoa.
A super tasty veggie infusion into your diet. *Vegetarian option: Swap out fish sauce with a vegan fish sauce, or just add some more tamari and maybe a pinch more salt.
This coconut yoghurt based dressing is thick, rich & gorgeous. It will easily go on your favourite dressings list. TIP: You can swap to Greek Yoghurt, and swap out coriander for mint or basil.
Sweet, Sour, Hot & Salty! Everything you look for in Asian cuisine. Pour this dressing over cucumber ribbons, julienne carrots, shredded cabbage, lettuce & lots and lots of fresh herbs! TIP: 1/4 a small red chilli will make a spicy dressing, but you can add as much as you want!
What's better than a beautiful rich Ratatouille? A Baked version! We love this as a side but truthfully you can eat it straight out of the dish, it's that amazing! Tip: Get creative and mix the veggies up a little with squash or eggplant. Hint: You can use any sturdy herbs to flavour the oil or alternatively you could add dried herbs to the passata.
Something a little different in the salad section! It's super quick and easy and oh so delicious! Tip: We love it served in the wedges and placed in the pool of dressing but it would also work as a chopped salad. Hint: We used a variety of fresh basil, mint and parsley leaves but use whatever you have, chives would also work well. For the seeds, we chose sesame, black sesame and nigella but you could also use pepitas and/or sunflower seeds.
Cream of Mushroom Soup is one of those recipes that has been around for generations, but we've tweaked it a little and our version is not only Vegan it fits in with most dietary protocols including AIP! Hint: We think this soup is perfect as is but if you don't want to thicken it with the tapioca flour you could try taking half the mixture out and blending it then combine back together. Tip: This is a light meal, if you want it to be more substantial you could add more mushrooms and sweet potato or serve with our AIP Garlic & Rosemary Foccacia.
A simple chicken stir-fry with a big hit of lemon that fits into pretty much every diet protocol including AIP. No need to stick to the vegetables we used, choose your favourites! Tip: If you want a thicker sauce you can use a little tapioca flour mixed in water and add at the end. Note: We used avocado oil in the marinade as olive oil is not recommended for cooking on the AIP diet and coconut oil will harden.
The AIP diet may not allow seed spices but there are many other ways of getting a big flavour impact! The combination of Turmeric, garlic, onion and lemon make this an extremely tasty dish and it's ready in 15 minutes! Hint: Add any other allowed salad vegetables you like. Tip: We used the pre-cooked beetroot available from the fruit & veg department in most supermarkets but if you prefer to cook your own we think roasted beetroot would taste amazing.
Make the most of the stone fruit season when it comes around by using them in everything! Peaches are almost always used in sweet dishes but they work so beautifully in this dish teamed up with chicken and gorgeous fresh thyme. Note: We finished this dish in the oven, for this, you will need an ovenproof frypan. Otherwise, you could cover and cook on the stovetop.
Chocolate and nuts just work so well together it doesn't even matter which nuts you use! We used peanut butter in this smoothie but absolutely any nut butter will work. Note: We used Happy Mammoth Collagen Protein powder but use your own favourite.
These Zucchini Tacos will be your new fave thing! They fold beautifully and hold together right to the last bite. Combined with garlic marinated prawns and a zesty lime and chilli dressing these tacos are right up there on the flavour scale! Note: There is a little bit of time involved in this dish but it's totally worth it.
Savoury Mince is one of those staple breakfast recipes you might see on the all-day menu in many cafes, because let's face it you can eat it for any meal you like! Hint: We love it with the addition of creamy avocado and a poached egg but the choice is totally yours as to what you top it with. Tip: We also love it served with our Paleo Taco/Tortilla.
This is our take on traditional style devilled eggs and we love it!! Tip: We think the perfect texture for the yolk is a 5-6 minute boiled egg. Hint: These make the perfect lunchbox or picnic snack!
A yummy cheesy tasting sprinkle that works in place of Parmesan cheese that's vegan!
Great with most salads. Tip: you can swap out the honey for maple syrup or coconut sugar.
We have made this guacamole AIP friendly but don't think for a minute it doesn't taste great, because it does!! Sweet potato toast is one of those new trends that is here to stay if you haven't tried it yet give it a go!
Kaffir Lime is one of those aromas that is instantly recognisable. They are also readily available from most leading supermarkets and can be kept in the freezer for whenever you need them. Hint: if you don't want to dirty 2 pans just cook the cauli rice first then set aside and keep warm while you cook the chicken and bok choy. Tip: We used a mortar & pestle for the marinade as it gets a little better result but you can just chop everything very finely and use the back of a spoon to mash it up.
Koftas are Middle Eastern meatballs. They are usually full of spices & herbs. We’ve left out the spices in this dish as we do have some diet categories that can’t tolerate them, or need to eliminate them for a short time. TIP: Fresh coriander can always be swapped for parsley, or just left out and enjoy the mint.
If you love tzatziki, this is a great dairy-free option. TIP: We like to use raw garlic in some of our dressings. If you're not a huge fan of raw garlic, maybe start with about a quarter of clove. Raw garlic has many health benefits, so try and add as much as you can!
Most people love Caesar Dressing. However, the bottled versions are full of additives, preservatives & other ingredients we don't know how to pronounce. Please note with our mayonnaise option below we've used a good store-bought mayo (always check your ingredients), however, we also have a homemade mayo recipe in this section. TIP: Anchovy fillets are a big part of where the Caesar dressing gets its flavour. We've only listed it as optional as it's a 50/50 on who actually likes them! If you're not using them, maybe add some extra mustard, lemon & salt to increase your flavours. Some pepper will work will too.
So beautifully simple and clean, served with steamed greens and a fresh wedge of lime the flavours are fresh and zesty. One of those simple mid-week dinners for when you don't have a lot of time. Note: The poaching liquid ingredients are not counted in macros as they are for flavour and won't be consumed however the poaching liquid is totally delicious and can be served as a soup with the chicken or on its own. Tip: The poaching method is the same for up to 2 whole chicken breasts so you can make some ahead for the next day.
This dish is a little decadent & purely designed for keto or low carb/high fat lovers. TIP: Dairy Free option - swap out the butter for coconut oil, it's still a great sage sauce.
A great alternative to morning oats if you are following a grain free diet. The sweetness of the coconut, strawberries & yoghurt are a nice change from some of the other heavy protein breakfasts. TIP: We haven't added a sweetener in this recipe as it falls into our low sugar diet categories. If you need this to be a little sweeter add a teaspoon of maple syrup, or for strict keto followers, a little keto approved sweetener.
Chicken with a creamy lemon & garlic sauce is delicious, extremely low carb & will be on your favourites list. TIP: This dish goes from stovetop to oven. Using a small ovenproof pan ensures you get lots of sauce at the end. See notes below.
Quick, simple and so very delicious, you will not want the flavours in this dish to end! Tip: Any steamed greens or other vegetables will work just as well.
If you like satay sauce this one's easy with all the healthy ingredients. We've got 2 options for serving raw or cooked. TIP: If peanuts are not part of your diet you can swap the peanut butter for almond or cashew. Also, fresh garlic can be swapped out for garlic powder.
A much lighter version of a classic Italian Linguine, we love the flavours in this dish, definitely one of those recipes to put on your favourites list! Hint: You can easily swap the coconut yoghurt for Greek yoghurt if dairy isn't an issue. Note: If you don't have a spiraliser you can make the noodles with a julienne/shark-style peeler
So easy and so versatile! Serve it on toast, crispbreads, sweet potato toast, or as a dip with your favourite vegetables or crackers.
Swapping out the toast for sweet potato slices is such a great idea and the fact you can actually cook it in the toaster means it's quick and super easy too! We took the avocado one step further by making it into guacamole but it's still yummy with just smashed avo. Hint: Don't like chilli? Swap it out with some diced tomato.
A quick and easy keto option when you're missing bread. It has a chewy texture similar to bread and works well for your favourite sandwich filling or toast it & top with your favourites like guacamole, hummus or as a bruschetta base! Hint: We used avocado oil but extra virgin olive oil is equally as good
Veggies for breakfast are becoming more common with the health conscious, and also with people that need to make some big diet changes. It’s different from the usual breakfast options, but you might like this tasty dish> TIP: You can also use marinated goat's cheese with this recipe & spoon over a little of the oil marinade as a flavour option.
One of the yummiest pizza combos ever! This serving was perfect for a small meal so if you want something a little more substantial it's easily doubled. Hint: We have included the recipe for pesto but if you have a favourite one you can use that instead.
This pesto is super quick and easy. We make it with a mortar and pestle due to the serving size and it makes 2 1/2 to 3 teaspoons. If you are making a larger amount you can use a blender. Hint: You don't need a fancy big mortar and pestle, any size and shape will do. Tip: Rather than toasting the pine nuts every time you can roast a batch and store them in a sealed jar in the fridge.
Fruit coolers are a great between-meal snack, especially in the warmer months. Hint: If you are using a sealed blender like a Nutri-Bullet the mineral water can build up the pressure but coconut water or chilled water will also work. Tip: You can use raspberries in this cooler as well or equal amounts of each.
Using fresh baked salmon is what makes this dish stand apart from your regular quiche recipes. It's an all in one dish too, so super easy! Tip: Dill and salmon work very well together but you can use any fresh or dried herbs you like.
Pork and apple were meant for each other! With the added flavours of onion, fresh herbs and a mash with a hint of ginger, you have a definite hit on your hands! Hint: Use whatever greens you like, it's still a gorgeous dish without them but they add that nice bit of freshness to the plate.
All the good things about hummus but it's paleo! Use this hummus as a dip, dressing or side. If you don't like the flavour of cumin you can use any spice you like. Paprika, turmeric or onion powder would all work. This recipe makes 1/3 cup.
A quick and easy curry with some classic Indian flavours. Note: By replacing the rice with cauliflower rice this dish will also fit in with Atkins, Keto and Paleo. Tip: If you don't like a hot curry you can leave out the chilli flakes. Hint: If you don't have cardamom pods you can use a pinch of ground cardamom.
This is one of those salads you will make again and again. It's one of our favourites, it's super easy and it tastes amazing! Tip: You could easily swap the pear for sliced apple. Hint: Just use as much of the dressing as you like, it will keep for weeks and any excess can be used on any other salad.
Anything with balsamic gets a tick in our books and these chicken drumsticks have a gorgeous crispy skin, tangy balsamic and sweet tomatoes. It all just works! Tip: Be sure not to skip the step to rinse and dry the chicken, it will ensure a crispier skin.
A one-pan dish is always a winner with us and when it tastes this good we love it even more! Note: We used Basil, parsley and sage for the herbs but use whatever you have (think Italian). Tip: You can easily add more vegetables to this dish if you like. Hint: Adjust the chilli to your taste.
So very light and fresh, the sauce is like a buttery broth and it's so delicious! Hint: This fit's perfectly into the keto diet and is really nice served with some cauliflower rice.

A gorgeous curry that's ready in 20 minutes! It's Keto and fits in with most other dietary protocols. Tip: Use whatever vegetables you like or whatever you have on hand and pretty much any protein would work with this.
Mushrooms on toast just got a whole lot better! Creamy goats cheese and avocado take it to the next level! Note: We used Venerdi Paleo Almond Bread for our toast but feel free to use your own favourite. Tip: We love Meredith Dairy creamy goats cheese, we chose the chive one for this recipe.
A delicious dressing takes a simple salad to a fantastic flavoured meal! TIP: If you don't like a particular herb, just change it with one you do like. Coriander or Basil work well in this dressing.
A gorgeous flavour packed Tikka Masala in under half an hour! We love these Indian flavours and if you don't have these spices they are definitely worth having in your pantry. You could serve this with one of our flatbread recipes or some rice but it is very filling on its own. Tip: Every element in this dish adds to the flavour balance so no cutting corners if you want the authentic flavour.
This traditional Middle Eastern dish has a rich tomato-based sauce, gorgeous spices and eggs. If you would like it a little spicier swap out the green chilli for a hotter variety. Tip: Don't leave off the parsley and mint, it seriously makes for an even tastier dish.
Okonomiyaki is a Japanese style savoury pancake stack. We have made our version a little healthier so it's Paleo and Keto friendly and seriously delish! Tip: This dish is easily made vegetarian by leaving out the ham or bacon but if you are using either try to find ones with no added nitrates or sugars. Hint: We used Niulife Coconut Teriyaki Sauce for this recipe but you could also use coconut aminos with a little honey, garlic & ginger added.
This muffin is just delightful on its own or served on the side of your fave dish. It's also yummy with a little mayo and salad. Tip: You can use whatever herbs you have on hand or dried herbs will also work, just keep in mind you will only need 1/2 teaspoon.

It's also a quick and easy lunch or dinner idea! Note: We think the thyme or any other fresh herb is a yummy edition but it's still great without them. Tip: It's really good with a little pesto added when serving.
A Thai chicken salad with a spicy peanut sauce. It's like a party in your mouth that takes you to Thailand! Note: For Paleo swap the peanut butter for almond butter. Hint: If you don't have a spiraliser a shark style julienne peeler works just as well.
Just like a big bowl of berry ice-cream! How can something that tastes this incredible be so good for you? Hint: We love Melrose Essential Reds powder in this bowl. Note: We used 1/3 cup each of frozen blueberries and strawberries and 1/3 cup fresh raspberries. It really just depends on what you have available at the time. Tip: If you use all frozen fruit reduce the number of ice cubes. Note: For AIP swap the almond milk for another suitable plant-based milk.
A vegetable bake with a twist. Light and delicious, it works well as a side with any main but is tasty just on its own! Want a vegan version? Swap out the butter with your favourite vegan substitute.
A very healthy alternative to store-bought tomato sauce, no nasty additives or preservatives, just tomato and spices with a little honey for sweetness. You can make this in 6 minutes!

An easy lunch or dinner that tastes amazing and it's vegan too! Hint: If you are not following a vegan or paleo diet and can tolerate dairy, this is extra nice with a touch of grated parmesan. Tip: If you want a nut free version just swap the pine nuts for sunflower seeds. Note: If you don’t have a spiraliser you can easily use a shark or julienne style grater
This is one of those easy 'go-to' recipes that you will make again and again. Absolutely everyone we have served this soup to has asked for the recipe! Hint: Want to bulk it up a little more? Add in some kelp noodles at the last minute.
Whatever you want to call them, skewers, kebabs or kabobs, food on a stick is always a bit fun! Just be sure if you're using wooden skewers you soak them well so they don't burn! Hint: To keep it paleo approved you can easily swap the peanut butter for almond butter.
Earthy beetroot, tangy goat's cheese and crunchy walnuts with fresh greens all tied together with a sweet & zesty dressing. Seriously though, a marriage of flavours that works beautifully! Tip: We used the pre-cooked baby beets available from the Fruit & Veg section in all leading supermarkets.
This gorgeous recipe has a few steps and a little extra prep but if you have the time we guarantee you will love it. The sauce is seriously addictive!

If you have never tried grilled lettuce before you need to! It's so delicious and teamed with this zesty salmon it makes for a very fresh and light dish. Tip: The extra wedge of lime is really nice to squeeze over the cooked lettuce!
A creamy Italian style chicken dish that can be served with your favourite steamed greens or even some rice but is awesome just on its own. Delish! Tip: We used the Sunny Fruit sun-dried tomatoes for this dish which are quite soft and pliable. Sandhurst, available from leading grocery stores make a similar type but you could also use any that come in a jar, just drain first.
This chicken develops more and more flavour the longer you let it marinate. In a hurry? Cook it right away, it's still amazing! The Apple Slaw is the perfect companion to this chicken, balancing the flavours out beautifully. Tip: If you slice the chicken first it will cut down on the cooking time.
A creamy and zesty chicken salad that just works. Yum! Hint: Our grapefruit weighed 300g whole. While preparing and dicing the grapefruit we ended up with enough juice on the board for the marinade and dressing, just use a board with a catchment edge or a plate so you can collect it. Any leftover flesh is great in a fruit salad. Tip: Don't marinate the chicken too long as the juice will begin the cooking process, 15 minutes is plenty.
This curry is like a big warm hug, a perfect anytime dish that you will want to make again and again. Best of all it's all in one pot! Note: Not all curry powders are created equal so make sure to buy a good organic one. We choose to use the one from Simply Organic Foods.
A vibrant and punchy flavoured dish that has all the flavours of Thailand. It's spicy, tangy and delicious! We love the chops cooked on the bbq but a grill pan or fry pan will also do the job. Tip: We used a julienne/shark style peeler for the carrot but grated will also work.
Tender and juicy chicken thigh with a light and fresh topping that tastes just like Italy. Note: We love the Niulife coconut balsamic vinegar for this recipe, just 3 simple ingredients, barrel-aged organic coconut vinegar, coconut nectar and tarragon leaves.

This is an easy, tasty chicken curry with the bonus of a big green veggie hit. TIP: Make sure you choose good quality spices with no fillers. You can also use a cheat here by adding 1-2 teaspoons of a pre-blended curry powder or even garam masala. Pure Food Essentials have a great tasting one, it’s organic with no added fillers.
The perfect alternative to overnight oats when you are following a grain free diet. The sweetness of the apple and creaminess of the yoghurt makes it taste like a naughty dessert! Note: Any plant-based milk will work in this recipe.
All the flavour you need for a gorgeous salad dressing or dipping sauce. TIP: Paleo, Vegan & Dairy Free swap out Greek yoghurt for a good quality plain coconut yoghurt.
If you love lamb then you will seriously love this dish. All of these flavours combined work so well together especially with the addition of the sweet potato mash. Tip: Use whatever greens you have on hand. Hint: Dried herbs can also work in this dish but will need to be reduced to 1/4 of the amount. Note: For AIP leave out the chilli flakes.
A brilliant alternative to potato mash that works with most proteins and other vegetables. By using coconut yoghurt for the creamy element it's also dairy free, vegan and AIP friendly! Note: The amount of coconut yoghurt used will depend on how wet or dry your sweet potato is once it's mashed.

We tried a few different recipe variations of Paleo gravy before settling on this one as a definite favourite! Any recipes using tapioca flour or similar to thicken them always ended with an ok result, this method using cauliflower to thicken means 1 extra step but trust us, it's totally worth the time. Hint: See notes for variations. Tip: Make extra and freeze in portions.

Spicy and tangy is what you will get with this incredible slaw recipe. Pair it with your favourite protein and some simple roasted potatoes and you have yourself a beautiful combination.

A quick and easy marinade to add some incredible flavour to a tender pork steak. Serve with your favourite sides. Hint: We have pictured this with the Spicy Slaw and we think the flavours work well together.

Don't ever think a cooked breakfast will take too long because you can have this scramble ready in under 10 minutes! Tip: Serve alone or with a piece of your favourite gluten-free toast. If you don't want the toast or think it won't be enough you can always add another egg or more veggies. Hint: If you want them even creamier you can add 1 teaspoon of coconut yoghurt or a little plant-based milk.
A gorgeous cinnamon marinade on the chicken is complimented perfectly by a mix of mustard and maple coating on the roasted vegetables. It tastes like Autumn but is delicious any time of the year! Hint: Swap out the vegetables with ones you like or have on hand.
A tasty Mexican spice rub makes for a delicious and fun dish with these skewers. We love to serve them with our Coriander & Chilli Cauliflower Rice but a side salad would work just as nicely. Tip: Be sure to pre-soak the skewers to avoid burning, alternatively you could use metal skewers. Hint: We cut the chicken thigh in half then each half into 3 to create 6 evenly sized pieces.
Garlic and herbs team up as a beautifully light marinade for this delicate mix of seafood. A wedge of lemon and a little sea salt is all it needs for the flavours to come together. Tip: We used a combination of herbs from the garden but any that you choose will work. Hint: We love this served with cauliflower rice but pretty much any sides will work with these simple flavours. Note: See notes in the method for seafood choices.
Something a little different to your regular side of greens! We think it tastes amazing and it works really well as a healthy alternative to rice.
A very easy side that will work with pretty much any protein! It's a great replacement for rice or starchy mashes and the flavour is so light and simple.
A spicy marinade that works perfectly with chicken! Serve with one of our delicious salad or vegetable sides. Tip: There wasn't a lot of heat in this chicken so we think you could increase the amount of chilli flakes for a bigger kick!
A gorgeous peanut satay marinade that can be used on chicken breast or thighs. A quick and easy meal when teamed with one of our amazing salad or vegetable sides.

If you are following a Paleo or Keto diet then you would not even imagine being able to have something like this! But we are here to tell you that you can! The 'scone' is light and fresh, the jam is tart and sweet and the yoghurt 'cream' just brings it all together beautifully. Hint: The scone can also be toasted and topped with any of your fave sweet or savoury toppings. It will also keep for up to 2 days if wrapped or sealed and placed in the fridge so it's completely portable for your lunch box or a picnic! Tip: The jam will keep for up to a week in the fridge. Note: We used liquid coconut cooking oil/fractionated coconut oil as it is light and has no flavour but any other oil or butter will work equally as well.
An English Muffin that has only 5 simple ingredients, cooks in 1 minute and is guilt free! It's grain free and will fit in with most diet protocols. Hint: Results can differ greatly depending on the dish you use and your microwave so you may need to keep an eye on it the first time you try this. Note: We have toasted it for the pic but it works just as well untoasted. The butter is a serving suggestion only and is not included in the ingredients or macros.
It doesn't get any easier than this! Two ingredients and 6 minutes and you have jam! Tip: You can add your choice of sweetener, we chose not to as the berries were sweet enough. Note: If you would like to use fresh berries you will need to add a little water to make enough liquid.
Hummus doesn't necessarily need to be made with chickpeas, which means even if you're following a paleo diet you can still enjoy it! This cauliflower version is seriously delish but check out our other recipes too! Note: This makes just under half a cup.
So much flavour in this beautiful little salad, you won't want to eat tinned beetroot ever again! Hint: We used the pre-cooked beetroot available from most leading supermarkets and fruit shops which makes this recipe super quick and easy but if you prefer to cook fresh beetroot it will work equally as well.
A fruity twist on a green smoothie that is loaded full of healthy fibre and antioxidants. Hint: You could swap the strawberries for any other berry of choice.

All the things we love about a Caprese salad with the addition of tender juicy steak and creamy avocado.

If dairy isn't a problem for you then parmesan cheese would also work beautifully.
This sauce works beautifully with seafood but don't stop there! It also works on chicken, beef or pork too!
This omelette is loaded with vegetables and flavour! It really is a complete meal and fits in with most dietary protocols too! Tip: We love to find ways of adding more greens to every meal but if you don't want to use the rocket just leave it off. Hint: We used shiitake mushrooms but any variety will work.
So so much flavour in this simple dish! Red grapefruit has just the right amount of sweet and bitter and when combined with the honey in the dressing and the fresh mint everything just works. Tip: We used the thin cut lean pork steaks for this but tenderloin would also work equally as well. Note: The full grapefruit we used weighed 250g.
Who says you need a bun to have a good burger? This Turkey burger has so much flavour on its own but when it's topped with those sweet and sticky balsamic onions it takes it to the next level! Hint: Use whatever salad you like and if you need it to be dairy free just swap the goat's cheese in the sauce for mayonnaise. Tip: We used Pure Harvest Coconut Quench for the milk in the sauce but use whatever you have. Note: Don't be put off by how many steps there are, most of the prep is done while the onions and burgers are cooking.
These fritters have a little bit of a Japanese twist to them, don't skip the sauce, it's seriously delish! Hint: Want vegetarian? Just leave out the bacon and add extra veg!
This is one of those dishes you can make to clean up leftover vegetables in your crisper, that's exactly how this particular dish came about! Tip: If you don't need the macros to be exact you can substitute the other vegetables with whatever you have e.g tomato, zucchini, pumpkin or eggplant.
Otherwise known as Zuppa Toscana this dish is traditionally made using Italian sausage, we've made it a little healthier by using Turkey mince and swapping out the regular cream with coconut cream. Best of all is that it's a one-pot dish so the clean up is minimal. Hint: You can reduce or increase the chilli flakes to suit your taste. Tip: We used a non-stick stoneware saucepan and the bacon crisped up beautifully. Note: You can leave the fennel out or replace it with another dried herb of choice.
Low carb, high protein and good fats in this dish, not to mention the flavour! It's super quick and easy too so perfect for a last minute dinner also. Hint: The fresh lemon is a lovely way to finish the dish and adds bags of flavour but is optional. Tip: We love fresh herbs but dried will work, just remember you won't need as much.
The saltiness of the prosciutto works perfectly with the milder taste of the salmon and the slight sweetness of the ratatouille. The punch of fresh herbs just rounds it out perfectly. Simple, quick and tasty. Note: We use Fratelli Beretta prosciutto for this recipe as the only ingredients are pork and salt, it is not processed and has no added nitrates. Hint: You can leave out the rosemary if you like, you will get a nice caramelisation on the prosciutto under the salmon.
Serve this rich tomato-based vegetable dish alone or with your favourite protein. Such a yummy way to get your vegetable servings up for the day!
This warm breakfast makes a nice change from the heavier protein meals on the keto or similar diet. TIP: If you need this a little sweeter add a ½ teaspoon of maple syrup or other approved sweetener.
No cooking is required for this easy meal! Plus, the dressing only takes a couple of minutes to mix together. TIP: The mint leaves are gorgeous in this dish, however they are optional. Swapping mint with either coriander or basil would also work well.
A twist on the usual cauliflower mash. By roasting it, you get a whole new depth of flavour, just delicious! Tip: Stir through some fresh herbs to compliment whatever you're serving it with.
A healthy twist on the traditional Lamb Souvlaki. We have left off the flat bread and added a little more salad but feel free to use one of our flatbread/tortilla recipes. Hint: We love the lemon slice on the kebab skewer but it can be left off. Tip: Dairy intolerant? Just leave out the feta, it still tastes amazing!
Completely AIP approved fritter recipes are few and far between but this one is exceptionally good! You can easily leave off the bacon but seriously, why would you want to?? Tip: The more finely you grate the sweet potato the better it will hold together.
Just like a strawberry milkshake but so much better for you! You can add in any health powders, protein powders or tonics that you like, we love to add Acai or a good reds powder.
A zesty vinaigrette dressing with a great kick of herbs that will work on all of your favourite salads.
So many ways you can enjoy this egg salad. In celery boats, lettuce cups or on your favourite toast or crispbreads. You can easily add some fresh or dried herbs of your choice to make it different each time. TIP: If the eggs are cold when putting them into boiling water cook them for around 7 mins for just undercooked, or 8-9mins for hard.
A family favourite that goes back to our childhood. It used to be made with a packet of Chicken Noodle Soup, no noodles in this one, but the flavours are the same and totally delish! We added some sweet potato crisps for a little crunch but they're completely optional. Sneaky tip: It's seriously good with creamy potato mash! Hint: If you don't eat red meat you can easily swap for any other mince.
An easy lunch or light dinner. Any cooked chicken is great in this dish. TIP: If packing for lunch, like most salads, don’t dress it until you’re ready to eat.
Sweet more than tart, and such a beautiful dressing for salads.
So much flavour in this simple little dish. Don't be put off by the number of ingredients, the marinades are easily prepared ahead of time. Don't skip the quick pickled onion, it's not only vital, but you will love it so much you will want to make it several times over and put it with everything! Tip: We used rib fillet for a quick cook but rump or scotch fillet will work as well.
Simple and delicious and ready in 10 minutes. Zesty and sweet all at the same time, it's light and fresh and works well as a side with your fave protein or double it for a simple light lunch.
Seriously good hummus that fits right into the paleo diet, no legumes! You can use blanched almonds for this but we love to blanch them fresh. You can blend this to whatever texture you like, it tastes incredible any which way, you can use it as a dip, a side or thin it down and use as a dressing. This recipe makes a little over 1/3 cup.
Caesar Salad with a twist! Charring the lettuce gives this salad a whole new flavour profile and we love it. Getting a soft boiled egg just right can be tricky but a poached egg is just as good. We used crispy bacon in place of the croutons so you're not missing out on the crunchy aspect.
All the goodness of gut-friendly kimchi in a simple scramble that tastes incredible. Korean chilli and coriander are bold flavours and work perfectly together. Something a little different to start your day or enjoy for any meal of the day. Hint: If you don't like the spiciness of Kimchi you can substitute it with Sauerkraut.
If you have never tried grilled lettuce then this is the recipe for you. It changes the taste greatly but in a very good way. Don't like anchovies? Leave them out. Tip: If you need it to be dairy free try the Niulife coconut ghee, it's delicious and it's Vegan!
A buttery, creamy sauce loaded with lemon. The perfect addition to your favourite white fish. We used Barramundi but Snapper or any other firm white fish will work. If you're not sure just ask when purchasing.
So much better than regular mash! Serve it on the side of everything! Tip: All pumpkins are not created equal, some are drier than others so adjust the yoghurt to get the desired consistency.
An unusual combination that works beautifully. We should all be having 1-2 servings of seafood a week and this is a great way to do it. Be sure to get your seafood from a reputable source!
Tasty and creamy and not a hint of dairy! Our serving suggestion for these mushies is on Venerdi Paleo Almond Bread but they're just as good on their own. Hint: We used shiitake and button mushrooms but any variety will work. Tip: These are amazing served over your favourite protein!
The flavours in this dish just work so incredibly well together, we dare you not to love it. Don't leave out the fresh mint, it really does bring it all together, so fresh and summery.
If you can't get Oyster mushrooms this recipe will work with other types but there is something about the lightness in flavour and the texture. Hint: If you don't like the spiciness of Kimchi you can substitute it with Sauerkraut.
All of these flavours just work! It's creamy, lemony and delicious! A perfect light meal when you don't have a lot of time. Note: We have checked this as Paleo and AIP even though there is wine in the ingredients as the alcohol does cook out. Tip: If you don't have a spiraliser for the zucchini you can use a shark style julienne peeler.
It's hard to believe there's no dairy in this dish! This serving is for a side and will compliment your favourite protein but is easily doubled and other veggies added to make a complete meal. Tip: To make it AIP compliant replace the almond milk with an approved plant-based milk.

Note: We topped it with the basil pesto from the dressings and sauces section and we love it but it's totally optional.
This recipe never fails. If you follow the instructions properly you will have tender, juicy and delicious chicken to serve with your favourite sides. Hot or cold, it's equally as good. Hint: This can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for up to two days. The method will also work with a chicken breast up to 250 grams. Tip: Take the chicken out of the fridge 15 to 20 minutes before cooking. Not: For AIP leave out the peppercorns.
Traditionally, Hainan style chicken is poached with a few simple flavours then served with a chilli sauce, a soy sauce and a ginger/shallot sauce. We have simplified it and made it healthier by adding these flavours to the poaching liquid. This may be the best poached chicken you've ever eaten! Tip: You can prepare this chicken and keep it in the fridge for up to two days. Hint: The cooking method will work with a chicken breast up to 250 grams just add an extra 5 minutes to the resting time.
A quick and easy homemade mayonnaise recipe that you will want to make again and again. It's Keto, Paleo and dairy free with no added sugars or toxic vegetable oils in sight so it will fit with most dietary protocols. Note: Makes approx. 2/3 cup. Tip: We used light tasting olive oil but the other suggested oils will work just as well.
The best description for these mushrooms is deeelicious! We think part of the reason they taste so amazing is the butter or ghee but you can definitely replace with your favourite oil. Tip: Need it to be lower in fat? Start with 2 tsp of butter or oil and add some water to create the sauce. Note: This is a side serving and we love it served with a tender juicy steak but can easily be doubled to enjoy on its own or on your favourite toast.
Let's face it, white chocolate and raspberries were just made for each other and although there is no actual white chocolate in this recipe it definitely takes your mind there!

Grilled vegetables already taste amazing but with a zesty hit of lemon and some fresh herbs they are taken to the next level. So much flavour! Eat it on its own for a yummy vegan meal or serve it with your favourite protein and if dairy isn't an issue you can crumble over some blue cheese or goat's feta. Yum! Hint: It's really good served warm or at room temp but just as nice if you want to make it ahead and serve directly from the fridge. Tip: Keep the vegetables in bigger pieces to make grilling easier, you can then chop them before adding to the salad bowl.
Creamy and cheesy without any dairy in sight! This recipe makes enough for a side sauce with your fave vegetables or protein. It will keep for a few days so if you don't use it all in one go we know you will find something else to put it on!
Light and creamy and oh so similar in texture to potato mash without the starchy carbs! Note: The goal here is to get the same consistency as mashed potato so if you overcook the cauliflower or don’t squeeze the liquid out you won’t get the same result. Tip: If you don’t have a food processor you can use a stick blender.
This dish is seriously tasty! Fennel is one of those vegetables that not many of us have tried or used but once you do, you will use it again and it works perfectly with citrus flavours. The salad can be made up to a day ahead. Hint: The salad will also work beautifully with salmon or pork. Tip: We used the pre-cooked beetroot available from the fruit and veg section in most leading supermarkets but if you want to cook from fresh it is easily baked in the oven.
Sounds like a bizarre combination but trust us, this salmon dish is so very, very good! Tip: If you can't get a hold of celeriac, parsnips or potatoes would also work.
Lemongrass is one of those flavours that works with any protein and it adds a delicious flavour hit to this quick stir fry. Tip: We've used long red chillies with a mild flavour but if you like some heat swap it out with birdseye chilli.
Kimchi is so good for gut health! We should be including fermented foods in our diet daily to keep our tummies happy. We chose cauliflower, carrot, asparagus and bok choy for our vegetables but seriously, throw in whatever you like! The more veggies the better. Hint: If you don't like the spiciness of Kimchi you can substitute it with Sauerkraut.
The 'cheese' sauce in this bake is totally dairy free and can be used in so many of your fave dishes. We actually think it tastes better than the real thing! We opted out of using pasta like the traditional recipe and loaded it up with veggies! So good! Tip: Change the vegetables up with whatever you like, if grains are not an issue for you corn would be lovely!
Veggies for breakfast? Of course! So much flavour in this dish and what a great way to start your day. We used sweet potato, zucchini, asparagus, and capsicum but feel free to get creative with your own. Tip: We used a julienne style peeler but a spiraliser would work equally as well.

A quick and easy slaw with a tangy dressing that will work with any of your favourite proteins. Hint: Add whatever other vegetables you like!
Chocolate and berries.... no need for any more words. Any berries will work in this recipe. We used Pure Harvest Coco Quench as our milk of choice.
