Spring has finally sprung! Well, technically. The calendar may say that it’s spring, but the weather doesn’t quite feel like it yet. For those of you on the paleo diet, AllFreeCasseroleRecipes has rounded up 20 casserole recipes that are paleo-friendly (which means they’re also gluten-free and dairy-free). While some of those words may scare you, “casserole” is universally accepted by everyone as being one of the most comforting words ever. Well, probably. Either way, there’s no denying the fact that casseroles are warm and inviting. They will be the perfect way to ease you into warmer weather without completely abandoning comfort food.
You probably have heard about the paleo diet, but you may not know that people on the paleo diet eat food that is grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free. Basically, the point is that you’re eating like the cavemen used to, minus the whole hunting for your own meat thing. For a more science-based explanation, FaveGlutenFreeRecipes wrote a post about the basics of the paleo diet that’s extremely helpful.
The paleo plan was actually one of the top diet trends in 2013 and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down this year, either. To see what all the fuss is about, you should try these paleo casserole recipes. Whether you follow the diet or not, these casseroles are delicious and are better for you than their carb-loaded, cheesy counterparts (although, those are our personal favorites).
While some of us may look at the paleo diet and say, “No thanks, I love my cheese and chocolate too much,” you’re not alone. But most of these casseroles we’re sharing with you are inspired by non-paleo dishes so that they taste as close to the originals as possible. Trust us – these paleo casserole recipes are really good, even to those who aren’t following the diet. There are paleo breakfast recipes, lunch recipes, and dinner recipes.
For those that are on the paleo diet, stay strong and indulge in these casseroles that will be comforting enough to get you through the chilly days of early spring. Why not cook your way through the list and try them all!
