Paleo Keto Food Ideas

It can be a challenge to think of something new and exciting to make or to find recipes that are both truly Paleo and low carb ketogenic (LCHF) . (A lot of low carb recipes just aren't low carb at all and a lot of keto recipes have dairy  or veggie oils. 

So here are some ideas. Please send me more and check out this great article to learn more

The Paleo Guide to Ketosis

Note: Paleo is dairy free with the exception of dairy fat, so butter is included in this list of recipes. But you can easily substitute other fats in its place. 

Meal template
Take any small amount of protein, and lots of non starchy veggies,then add some of these great and not boring sauces to your combo. All of these are definitely LCHF  and come the book: Primal Blueprint Healthy Sauces, Dressings and Toppings 

Minty Caper Sauce (p.78)

Sausage Gravy (p. 44)
Bearnaise Sauce (p. 32)
Hollandaise Sauce (p. 30)
Lemon Butter (p. 86)

Another quick and easy keto meal or side dish is organic greens or baby romaine or baby spinach or arugla -  with dressing! (you can also add chopped left over protein  a few sliced nuts and a bit of berries, in minutes  and call it a gourmet protein salad)
