As we head into the Fourth of July weekend, we’re looking forward to grilling and yard games with loved ones! Here are some delicious Paleo options for staple summer cookout dishes.
For those who are unfamiliar, the Paleo diet attempts to emulate what our Paleolithic ancestors would have eaten – plenty of meat, veggies, and healthy fats. Paleo eaters avoid most grains, dairy, refined sugar, and alcohol. Paleo Grub made an awesome Paleo 101 page with more details
Ribs by Nom Nom Paleo – This slow-roasting method for classic ribs will give you juicy, tender, meaty deliciousness! Nom Nom Paleo has a treasure trove of gluten-free, dairy-free recipes that follow Paleo guidelines for clean eating.
Coleslaw by Paleo Grubs – Coleslaw is an essential ingredient in a classic summer BBQ, and it can still be Paleo-friendly! This recipe adds a homemade mayo, but there are Paleo mayo options in stores from brands like Primal Kitchen.
Chunky Monkey Bon Bons by Nom Nom Paleo – Every summer BBQ has an amazing dessert and yours can too! This innovative recipe makes “ice cream” by simply blending frozen bananas and vanilla extract, and then covering the tasty concoction with melted dark chocolate.
These recipes can give your summer gathering a new level of flavor and health! We hope you have a happy and healthy Fourth of July weekend.
