No Potato Salad Paleo Recipe


This healthier gluten free potato salad is perfect for picnics and barbecues. Replacing potato with cauliflower is a Low Carb Diet trick I learned a decade and a half ago.

No Potato Salad

Have you made potato salad using cauliflower instead of potatoes?

Swapping in cauliflower, a fiber rich food, results in a far more nutrient dense gluten free potato salad that’s also low carb.

The low carb diet has worked well for me because it burns fat, stabilizes blood glucose levels, and incorporates so many nutrient rich foods.

Along those lines, the health benefits of a low carb diet are plentiful.

Cauliflower is a fantastic superfood that I eat regularly in a variety of ways.

High Fiber Food

Naturally high in fiber and vitamins B and C, it also contains phytonutrients and glucosinolates that help protect against cancer.

This versatile vegetable is also an optimal swap for high carb rice. Here are some of my cauliflower rice recipes:

Celiac Disease Self Care

Wondering how it all started? Living the life of a gluten free pioneer hasn’t always been easy.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1998, and at that point, gluten free recipes were incredibly hard to find.

I knew I’d need to create my own.

Gluten Free Recipes

Another issue? So many gluten free recipes use unhealthy ingredients.

For example, the majority of gluten free breads and baked goods are made with high carb ingredients such as rice flour, potato starch, and corn meal.

Since I’m conscious of the advantages of gluten free and low carb diets, I use flours and ingredients that are full of healthy fat, fiber, and protein.

Is Potato Salad Gluten Free?

You don’t have to ask is potato salad gluten free with my No Potato Salad because, yes, it’s gluten free and it’s low carb, too!

This colorful and nutrient rich salad with radicchio, friseé, butter lettuce, and arugula is also next level delicious because of my homemade salad dressing recipe.

When you have a fruit salad recipe that’s so simple to pull together, the hardest part is deciding on the fruit medley to use.

Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe

Ice Cream Sandwich

My recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies along with vegan vanilla ice cream that’s homemade is a match made in heaven!

My Ice Cream Sandwich recipe has been a family favorite since the boys were little.

Back in the day, I made assembling these healthy frozen treats an interactive activity for the boys and their friends, setting out a toppings bar with gluten free sprinkles, coconut flakes, chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, and more to coat them.

This activity was a huge hit at our end of the season baseball parties and is one of my absolute favorite recipes for summer, but it’s so incredible we make it all year round!

The best way to cool down on a hot day? A healthy homemade popsicle!

For a low carb pop, swap out the honey for Swerve.

Take note though, Swerve is a low carb keto sweetener that’s not on the menu for me. To find out why read What’s the Best Sweetener for the Keto Diet.
