These 30+ Primal and Paleo Asian Recipes are so delicious. Find your favorite Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Indian Paleo-friendly recipes.
Going Paleo doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite Asian dishes. These 30+ Primal and Paleo Asian Recipes are healthy alternatives for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese classics, including sushi, pad Thai, Kung Pao chicken and even Chinese almond cookies.
I found that rice or vegetable noodles (get this amazing vegetable spiralizer to make your own vegetable noodles) were perfect for swaps for wheat noodles. I also found Coconut Aminos – a soy sauce alternative that’s derived from coconuts and both soy free and gluten free – and Organicville Sky Valley Sriacha hot sauce – a gluten free and preservative free Asian hot sauce. Both sauces serve as a base for many of my own Asian meals as well as those below.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
