Gluten-Free Vietnamese Spring Rolls with Paleo Satay Sauce

Gluten-free Spring Rolls

I attended a food photography workshop this past weekend and we ended the 2 days of intensive learning with a spring roll party. These are perfect for a large group. They are really fun to make and kids love them too. Since everyone builds their own, different dietary lifestyles are easily accommodated.  If you are the host, it’s an easy way to throw a dinner party and not have to do much cooking!

Paleo Chicken Salad Boats

Paleo Chicken Salad

During the Spring and Summer months, our fridge is almost always stocked with Paleo Chicken Salad. It makes for such a flavorful, satisfying and simple meal! Since chicken salad is served cold, it’s also perfect to pack for lunches to be enjoyed at school or at the office.

What makes a good chicken salad in my book is the mayo. Store-bought mayo may be convenient, but it is often packed with unhealthy oils and preservatives. Homemade mayo is actually quite easy to make with an immersion blender or a food processor. It is also a health food! It’s a great way to add some more healthy fats into your diet.

Paleo Vanilla Chai Latte Panna Cotta

Paleo Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta is one of my favorite desserts. Although it sounds and looks sophisticated, it is easy to make. It’s also a perfect recipe for those following an autoimmune paleo protocol and for those of you that are allergic to eggs. This recipe is grain-free, egg-free and dairy-free!

Once you get the base down, you can change your flavors and toppings by season. In the fall, I like to make a Paleo Pumpkin Panna Cotta and in the winter, I make a Paleo Pomegranate Panna Cotta. Today, I am excited to share this creamy and luscious, Vanilla Chai Latte Panna Cotta with you. This is a great option for serving to guests, as you can make it ahead of time!

Paleo Bangkok Meatballs

Paleo Asian Meatballs

I am thrilled to share one of my favorite recipes from my new cookbook, The Paleo Foodie with the Food Renegades! Like most of the recipes in the book, these meatballs are gourmet, yet simple to make. They can be served as part of a weeknight dinner, or you can impress your dinner guests with a fun twist on the traditional meatball appetizer. I like to make these weekly and keep them in the fridge for a quick and flavorful Paleo-friendly protein snack.

Thai flavors are some of my favorite. They are unique, vibrant and refreshing. Typical Thai dishes combine the 4 flavors of salty, sweet, sour and spicy. For the spicy aspect, this recipe calls for Thai chili peppers. They are sometimes hard to come by. If you can’t find some, serrano peppers make a good substitute.
