Top 10 Paleo Posts of 2013

Top 10 Paleo Posts of 2013 | stupideasypaleo.comHere we go…it’s the Top 10 Paleo Posts of 2013 from right here on the blog!

On Christmas Day at 3 p.m., it’s customary for Brits to watch the Queen give her annual holiday broadcast. (I’ve been in Scotland for the past two Christmases, and I can say, this time-honored tradition is taken pretty seriously!) Her message this year was about reflection which gave me pause to think about all the cool things that have happened with Stupid Easy Paleo this year.

In June, I launched the newly designed WordPress.org version of the blog. This meant I now had a fully functioning, completely capable platform to bring you all the best features for delivering recipes and articles. I also debuted the Easy Paleo Quickstart Mini-Course that month (formerly called the Easy Paleo Quickstart Guide) which has helped over 16,000 people to date get started learning about Paleo. June also marked my one year sabbatical from teaching to focus on building Stupid Easy Paleo into a better resource for you.

Since then, things have grown more than I ever imagined possible. Your support has meant so much to me: through blog comments and emails, the Facebook page and other social media, and purchasing courses and cookbooks and clicking on Amazon links so I can continue to keep the blog going…I’m continually motivated to bring you the best I can. Your letters and comments about how much Paleo has improved your life is nothing short of inspiring. Thank you sincerely for having me along as part of the journey.

As I look ahead to 2014, I’m excited about the great things I’ve got planned for you (my real-deal ebook, The Paleo Athlete, launches very soon), hitting the road with Whole9 for our Whole Athlete Seminar and so much more.

And so, to close out 2013, I bring you a quick recap of the top 10 Paleo posts from the blog!

The Top 5 Stupid Easy Paleo Recipes of 2013:

Simple Paleo Tortillas | stupideasypaleo.com Simple Paleo Tortillas. This was the sleeper hit of the year, concocted while FaceTiming my better half in Scotland about a week before I left the US for my trip. It’s proven to be ultra-popular because it’s one of the only gluten-free tortilla recipes I’ve seen that’s truly easy and yields a foldable, versatile product.

 

DSC_0197 Easy Pan-Fried Lemon Chicken. No grill? No problem. Keeping chicken breast moist while cooking is always a challenge, but this recipe always get the job done. Pound the chicken flat for even cooking, marinate and cook on high heat to seal in the juices.

 

 

DSC_0679 Homemade Kombucha. This has probably been the Paleo drink of the year. This post is a basic tutorial (recipe + video) showing you how to make it. If you’re intimidated by the process (which you shouldn’t be!), this is a simple way to get started. Of course, if you want me to show you in detail from start to finish, there’s always my Kombucha eClass.

 

DSC_0062 Dairy-Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. No dairy, no egg desserts are hard to come by in Paleo, but this four-ingredient treat makes a few lush bites without the extra added sugar or problematic ingredients. If you’re looking for an alternative that doesn’t use gelatin, check out the sister recipe for chia pudding here.

 

IMG_3760 Paleo Cabbage Rolls (aka Golumbki). I’m so surprised by this one being in the top five because I didn’t even think many people would know what they are! This is a Paleo-friendly variation on my Grandma’s cabbage rolls and a shout out to my Polish heritage. It makes a large batch and is finished right in the crock pot.

      This is so sweet, Meg! Thank YOU for being a great person and being so open to learn. This is the reason I blog in the first place. If there’s even one person I can help, it’s worth it. Looking forward to seeing you thrive in 2014!

    I love your website for the tips and RECIPES. And yes, I make your stuffed cabbage twice a month – sometimes even a double batch…and then we enjoy them during the week and freeze some of them. I even give some to my mom (who is not doing paleo, but loves a good stuffed cabbage!). I started Paleo on Oct 1 and have lost 26 pounds. Your recipes help make it easy for this new way of life. My husband has now joined me. Thanks for your website!
