Waldorf Chicken Salad – A summer classic! This cool and refreshing chicken salad recipe is bursting with sweet, creamy flavors with amazing texture. Perfect for the warm months of the year when you’re craving chilled food.

Special Diet: Recipe can be made paleo by replacing the Greek yogurt with more mayonnaise. Be sure to use avocado oil mayo for paleo.

Prep Ahead: Cook the chicken up to 4 days ahead of time. This salad saves very well so the whole thing can be prepared ahead of time if need be.

Substitutions/Notes: Use rotisserie chicken for the quickest prep!


Easy Blackened Fish Tacos – Fish tacos are one of my all-time favorite meals! These Blackened Fish Tacos are SUPER delicious and made simply with a little avocado and a quick cabbage slaw.

Special Diet Notes: This fish taco recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free. To make the recipe paleo friendly, put the fish and toppings over a bed of salad greens and dress with some lime juice and olive oil, or use grain-free tortillas. For a low-carb option, use low-carb tortillas.

Prep Ahead: Cabbage slaw can be prepped a couple of days in advance.

Substitutions/Notes: Blackening spices are probably ones you already have on hand: smoked papirika, sea salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, & thyme.

Serve the tacos with some homemade Pickled Red Onions if you have the time to make them or if you have some on hand! The pickled onions can be made up to one week ahead of time.


Greek Lentil Salad – A chilled salad with lentils, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, red onion, sun-dried tomatoes and a simple lemon dressing. This easy healthy salad recipe is the perfect side dish or light main dish that can be served with any animal protein for a more substantial meal.

Special Diet Notes: This recipe is gluten-free and cannot be easily made paleo or keto. You could replace the lentils with cooked cauliflower florets and serve the salad with your favorite protein.

Prep Ahead: The lentils can be cooked up to 4 days ahead of time. The whole recipe saves very well and can be made 3-4 days ahead of time.

Substitutions/Notes: Add in your favorite fresh vegetables, herbs, or spices. Serve the salad with animal protein for a bigger protein boost.


Grilled Vegetable and Rotisserie Chicken Salad – This versatile summer salad is a mixture of grilled and fresh vegetables, easy rotisserie chicken, and a light garlic-lemon vinaigrette! Swap out any veggies for ones you prefer. It’s a great way to use up some fresh garden veggies!

Special Diet Notes: Recipe is gluten and dairy free. Omit the corn to make it paleo and low carb friendly.

Prep Ahead: The vegetables can all be chopped in advance.

Substitutions/Notes: Swap out some of the vegetables you like for others you prefer! You can even omit the chicken or swap it out for some beans to make it vegetarian.


Thai Basil Beef – Easy 30-Minute Healthy Thai Basil Beef comes together lightning fast yet is powerfully flavorful! This simple healthy dinner recipe is a classic Thai dish, best served with steamed rice or fried rice.

Healthy 30-Minute Thai Basil Beef (Pad Gra Prow) is savory, sweet, with just the right amount of kick. Easy to prepare any night of the week for a healthy easy dinner recipe! Gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, whole30 and paleo.

Special Diet Notes: This recipe is paleo and can be made low-carb by substituting liquid aminos or soy sauce for the coconut aminos. To make the whole meal paleo or low-carb, serve the beef with cauliflower rice or your choice of vegetable side dish.

Prep Ahead: Thai Basil Beef comes together in 30 minutes or less, so there’s no need to prepare anything in advance.

Substitutions/Notes: Use liquid aminos or soy sauce instead of coconut aminos if you’d prefer.


Thai Green Curry Zoodles with Shrimp – This quick weeknight meal is a knock off of the Noodles & Co. Thai Green Curry with Zoodles. I LOVE the little bits of pineapple dotted throughout.
