Paleo and Whole30 Lettuce Cups

March 04, 2020



Whole30 and Paleo Lettuce Cups

The quick, five-ingredient (seasoning and cilantro aside) Whole30 and paleo lettuce cups recipe is the perfect weeknight dinner recipe when you're short one time, bothered from your commute, and starving. Simply chop a bell pepper, brown ground pork, stir together a few other ingredients, and dinner's done. Primal Kitchen Hawaiian-Style BBQ Sauce accents the unctuous ground pork and sweetness of the red bell pepper and pineapple with smoky, savory, Island-kissed flavor. Scoop straight from the skillet, or pile atop of lettuce leaves, and devour.

Keto Avocado Smoothie, Two Ways

Keto Avocado Smoothie, Two Ways

For folks who like their shakes frothy, thick, and creamy, avocados are the secret ingredient to a successful smoothie. Unlike a banana or nut butter, they add a little heft without stealing the show with overpowering flavor. An avocado adds texture with mostly neutral flavor, allowing other ingredients to make a bigger statement. For our Keto Avocado Smoothie, two scoops of Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel add 10g of bovine collagen peptides...and a kick of creamy, vanilla coconut taste that pairs perfectly with avocado.
