Keto eating should always put nutrients first, but there’s nothing wrong with having treat recipes on hand for when you’re making the conscious choice to enjoy something sweet. This recipe offers it all—whole food, Primal friendly ingredients for whipping up either a Primal brownie batch…or a keto version. You’ll enjoy the rich texture and deep chocolate taste without the typical sugar rush.
Tips: This recipe has a primal option sweetened with dates and a keto option sweetened with a granulated monk fruit sweetener. Feel free to use Swerve in lieu of the monk fruit. These brownies are extra fudgy and taste even better after being refrigerated, so we highly recommend allowing them to cool, cutting them and then placing them in the fridge for a few hours or overnight before enjoying.Read More
There’s such simplicity in pairing a delicious pasta sauce with zoodles or spaghetti squash, but sometimes you want to pull out all of the stops. When you feel like getting fancy, this Primal pasta is the perfect idea!
Since the Primal pasta recipe is not low-carb, we’ve also included a Keto option that is cheese based. Keep in mind that the Paleo recipe is a boiled pasta, while the Keto option is baked.Read More
In a perfect world, we’d all sit down every morning to a leisurely, healthy breakfast. In the real world, however, we’ve all done our share of eating breakfast in our cars, on the bus, or at our work stations Sometimes, where you eat the breakfast you grabbed on your way out the door can’t be helped. What can be helped, however, is what you eat. Keep in mind that while omelet muffins are perfect for breakfast on the go, they’d also be great for a weekend brunch. Double the recipe and make a dozen. Then, make time to sit down with family or friends and enjoy the type of long, leisurely breakfast that’s so hard to come by during the week.Read More

This sticky and slightly sweet balsamic sauce is one of the simplest recipes you’ll find. Four ingredients. Five minutes’ total effort. It doesn’t get much easier than that—especially for meat this finger-licking delicious. Bonus: It’s Primal+keto—and family-friendly. Serve it up at your next family dinner or hosted gathering.
Note: We love this sauce on drumsticks, but it’s also perfect for bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. Serve with your favorite salad or vegetable.Read More

Cook up keto-friendly meat, veggies, chips, and fries in a snap with the air fryer!
The air fryer works similar to a convection oven, and it’s becoming every bit as ubiquitous as the crock pot. It’s a must-have kitchen appliance for when you want to save time while making healthier meals—which you’ll definitely want when you’re on the keto diet.
One of the best parts of using an air fryer is the ability to make deliciously crispy recipes like onion rings or fish sticks—but without any grease.
If you’re new to keto or the air fryer (or both), these 22 recipes for appetizers, sides, healthy snacks, and mains are a great way to get started! Serve it alongside a slice of keto bread, and you’ve got yourself a great fat-burning meal!Read More
This easy, simple pesto recipe offers a perfect go-go recipe when you want that classic basil and pine nut pesto flavor. What will you use it for?Read More
Pasta and meatballs are a classic, comforting dish, but there’s more possibilities than the carb-heavy grain pasta and beef meatball version. You’ll find these chicken hemp meatballs to be a little lighter and more nuanced. Over a helping of spiralized zucchini, it’s the perfect match of freshness and taste, but let’s not stop there. With a rich but bright Romesco sauce, this dish opens up a whole new world of Mediterranean flavor.Read More
When it comes to side dishes, simple is best. A list of ingredients you can count on one hand is the way I like to do it. This dish delivers on ease and offers plenty of solid nutrition and great Primal taste. Cooking up great flavor starts with quality ingredients, for sure, but don’t underestimate the power of a great sauce or seasoning—and the right cooking method. Roasting vegetables is one of the surest ways to bring out a richer, deeper taste. Brussels sprouts work great for this. Add some balsamic and bacon, and you’ve got an amazing side for any meaty main course.Read More
Dessert can be a final course—or it can be a true finale. This show-stopping pie definitely fits the latter category. Imagine setting this on the table in front of family and guests. Who do you think would be able to resist the colorful, creamy treat? We thought so.
A little fluffier than cheesecake, the lighter filling is a great complement to a dense but sweet crust that will leave graham crackers in the dust. But the best thing? It’s low-carb, Primal and even keto-friendly.Read More
