Substitutions/Notes: Swap out any of the vegetables with your favorite vegetables. broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy and zucchini are all great options. You can replace the chicken with any type of ground meat.


Marinated Steak Fajitas – Flank steak and veggies are marinated in a smoky marinated with a touch of heat to make these super flavorful fajitas! Use them to make traditional fajitas or throw them on a salad. Save the leftovers for breakfast or dinner the next day.

Prep Ahead: Recipe is best when served fresh. If you want to make it in advance, mix everything but the avocado together then add the avocado just before eating.

Substitutions/Notes: Use canned tuna or canned chicken as a replacement for canned salmon. See blog post for all sorts of adaptations.


Spicy Shrimp Rolls (Or Bowls)Make these Spicy Shrimp Rolls at home for a fun, easy dinner! You can make them as spicy or as mild as you like. Just pull out some frozen shrimp and you can have these shrimp rolls (or bowls!) on the table in under an hour.

Special Diet Notes: This recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free. The shrimp salad itself is paleo-friendly if you use avocado-oil mayonnaise. Make it keto by using cauliflower rice.

Prep Ahead: The shrimp salad and cucumbers can be prepped a day or two in advance. It’s better if the sushi rice is at room temperature when you use it, so I recommend making it earlier in the day or the day before and let it sit out for a few hours to get the chill off.

Substitutions/Notes: If you’re wanting this to be grain-free, use Roasted Cauliflower Rice and turn the recipe into Spicy Shrimp Bowls instead of sushi rolls.


Cuban Mojo Chicken Thighs – Baked Mojo Chicken Thighs feature a delicious Cuban Mojo marinade, resulting in a citrusy glazed, tender chicken with incredible flavor and texture. Serve the chicken along with your favorite sides and toppings like rice, beans, plantains, avocado, fresh cilantro, etc.
