This recipe involves two of our favorite phrases: quick and pad thai. We LOVE Thai food but it's not always the easiest food to digest as it tends to be oily, sticky and straight-up heavy. This quick chicken pad thai is light, refreshing, and Paleo diet-friendly!

I am a serious sucker for sweet treats. Back in the day, I would indulge in a sweet treat – be it a donut, cookie or slice of cake – at LEAST every day. I know – I'm bad, but I just can't help myself! Thankfully, this brownie is a guilt-free treat that's made with gluten-free flours and wholesome ingredients.

Pumpkin seeds are a great source of iron and zinc and, aside from providing some serious health benefits, also provide beauty benefits as well! These little protein bites make for a great breakfast or mid-day snack.
5. Paleo Cauliflower Rice Pudding

Cauliflower rice pudding may seem strange, but cauliflower is such a great substitute for rice that you won't even notice the difference. If you're not a fan of chia pudding, try this recipe for breakfast instead.
6. Homemade Sausage

Don't buy your sausage; make it at home! You never know what's in store-bought sausage patties, so skip the guesswork and make them at home with ingredients you know and can trust.
7. Fire Roasted Shrimp Tacos

The tortillas in this recipe aren't Paleo, but the shrimp itself is and really, that's all you need. If you want to wrap this in something, we suggest trying the Spinach & Basil Egg Wrap recipe (no. 23)
8. Paleo S'Mores

Just because you're Paleo doesn't mean you can't enjoy treats you used to as a child. In fact, you can enjoy them EVEN MORE knowing that they're good for you, won't make you feel heavy, and won't overload you with refined-sugars and flours. These paleo S'Mores are heavenly guilt-free desserts you can enjoy any time of the year!

If you're a snacker like I am, you know how difficult it is to find healthy snacks that don't have added sugar in them and other gross ingredients (I mean, do falafel chips really need added sugar?!). These zucchini chips only require one main ingredient – zucchinis – and can be made with any spices and flavorings of your choosing.
10. Maple Walnut Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe uses coconut cream to get that rich, creamy texture we all know and love. While you can use any natural sweetener, this recipe calls for coconut nectar which is low in the glycemic index, contains less fructose than agave or cane sugar, and contains trace minerals and vitamins.
11. Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

A lot of people think that following a specific dietary regimen is restricting when, in fact, it allows you to eat so much more! The best part is the creativity involved in recreating old favorites with a new spin. This recipe is a perfect example of an old-school favorite that's been made over to be a healthy, delicious and fun treat.
12. Paleo Fried Pickles

Who loves pickles? Everyone does! Pickles are one of the most patriotic foods there are! Can foods be patriotic? Probably not, but we're saying it anyways. If you're a fan of fried pickles, rest assured that these are WAY better and healthier than the ones you'd find at a bar or restaurant.
13. Paleo Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Breakfast food is king and muffins are like the princesses of the royal family. They're a great on-the-go item that will put a smile on everyone's face because c'mon, it's a muffin. These paleo muffins are made with less than 10 ingredients and taste every bit as delicious and decadent as their refined-flour and sugar-laden counterparts.

Cornbread should have its own song. In fact, cornbread should be the official bread of some state – it doesn't matter at this point as long as someone recognizes the beauty and wonder that is cornbread. This recipe is Paleo, gluten-free and sexified with bits of jalapeno that give this recipe that extra kick.
16. Easy Paleo Chili

Any recipe that has the word “easy” in it is definitely one I bookmark. Especially for weeknights when all I want to do is order take out and watch Game of Thrones. I don't (order take out), but I wish I could. Instead, I look for easy recipes I can put together and enjoy in less than 30 minutes. This recipe is one of those and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
17. Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones

Mmm, scones. I still remember the first time I had a scone. I was working at a bakery and tried a raisin scone for the first time and immediately fell in love with how buttery it was. This scone is just as buttery, but good news, food-lovers, contains less than twice the fat! Which is great because who only ever eats just ONE scone?
18. Lemon Cashew Cookies

With only 6 ingredients you can enjoy rich, soft, and moist lemon cashew cookies. These cookies not only make for a great dessert or post-workout snack, they contain healthy fats and protein that will supercharge your morning.

If you're into dessert pizzas, you'll love this recipe with caramelized onions, figs and raw honey! Figs and honey are loaded with vitamins and minerals that do your body and skin good.
26. Cloud Breakfast Eggs

We only listed this recipe is requiring two ingredients because if you pare it down to its most basic elements, all you need is an egg and meat. However, you can add more if you'd like by adding freshly chopped herbs or spices.
27. Paleo Sweet Bread

What makes this bread sweet? Apple butter, that's what. This is the PERFECT bread for toast. Spread butter, almond butter or top this guy with fresh fruits for a hearty, sweet breakfast.
28. Pesto Meatballs

There's pesto in these meatballs! And goshdarnit, it's delicious. You can either plop these meatballs on a bed of greens or vegetable noodles (we prefer the latter).
29. Paleo Banana Breakfast Bars

Don't be alarmed by the green in these bars! It's only zucchini and you can barely taste it. These breakfast bars are great to make on a Sunday night and enjoy throughout the week. They're protein-packed and filled with good fats and nutrients.
