When we set out to uncover which of our keto-friendly recipes were fan favorites, we were surprised that preferences were all over the culinary map. No shockers that our sweet treats were hits, but we also found that purely Primal standbys like bone marrow stood their ground in a sea of keto-fied comfort food makeovers.
Whip up this easy, inspired soup in the AirFryer in just 30 minutes. Primal Kitchen Sesame Ginger Dressing marries harmoniously with the liquid that leaches from the beef meatballs to create a heady, aromatic broth that’s rich in umami.
This chicken macro bowl provides ideal post-workout fuel to help you replenish. It’s calorically dense but packed with satiating fat from avocados, muscle-repairing lean protein from skinless chicken, and glycogen-restoring carbs packed with beta-carotene, B vitamins, vitamin C and potassium from a sweet potato.
This drink is sunshine in a glass. Packed with vitamin C, anti-inflammatory fresh ginger, and collagen to support hair, skin, nails and joints, it’s great to sip any time you feel a bit under the weather.
These buns are: LEGIT. Just as fluffy and ooey-gooey as a Cinnabon, but yummier. They're filled with a buttery cinnamon-sugar-pecan filling, sandwiched between two layers of coconut sugar caramel and pecan topping, and jam-packed with Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides for a protein boost. They're also yeast-free, and super easy to make.
Make these four-ingredient, no-bake, no-fry donut holes. Macadamia nuts provide an unctuous base that, when pulverized in a food processor or high-speed blender, develop a texture similar to cookie dough. Simply roll the buttery dough into balls, chill, then roll in powdered natural sweetener. We boosted our donut holes with collagen—our gorgeously Golden Turmeric Collagen.
We lightened traditional pasta primavera substantially—instead of cheese, we whipped up an herby cashew sauce; instead of pasta, we used zoodles; instead of a huge mix of different veggies, we opted to let the zucchini be the focal point. We added fresh shrimp sauteed with lemon zest to our dairy-free remake, but if you want to keep the dish vegan, you can sub roasted broccoli or toasted walnuts or almonds.
This seven-ingredient spinach salmon salad is one of these easy-to-assemble workday salad lunches. The key to keeping all of the components fresh is to pack them separately: 1 container for the cooked salmon, 1 container for the salad fixings, 1 for the sliced avocado, and 1 for the dressing.
In just 20 minutes, you can have dinner on the table. All it takes is browning some meat, adding some veggies and sauces to the mix, then layering on even more flavor with some chopped nuts, toasted sesame seeds and fresh lime juice. One-pot dinner for the win!
Our Keto Buffalo Wings are every bit as crispy-skinned, tender-on-the-inside, spicy and sexed-up as the most crave-worthy wings out there. We used an AirFryer to get the right texture (no deep-fried bath in cheap seed oils here!), and whipped up a finger-licking-good hot sauce made with our Primal Kitchen Spicy Ketchup to coat the wings.
Chicken wings and drumsticks are as Primal, paleo, keto, carnivore and even Whole30 as you can get—if you don’t deep fry them in refined oil or coat them in sugary sauces. Sure, baked chicken wings do the job, but that’s no fun. The AirFryer provides the perfect middle-ground solution: You get crispy skin on the outside without coating your kitchen in oil stains, and the meat inside stays moist and tender.
Our Fried Guacamole marries the classic chips and guac combo into a handheld showstopper appetizer—no double dipping or browning-in-the-bowl guac concerns necessary. To keep things Primal/paleo, gluten- and grain-free, we used cassava flour and grain-free tortilla chips, and instead of deep frying, we used an AirFryer.
