Recipes for the Ultimate Paleo Party!

Recipes for the Ultimate Paleo Party!

Throwing a party for you and your friends that follow the Paleo diet shouldn't mean less tasty snacks.  Here are 3 delicious Paleo recipes so you can be the hero of any allergy-restricted party.

1. Chili Garlic Arugula Paleo Flatbread

Gluten Free Paleo Arugula Olive Oil Wild Zora Chili Beef Bar Flat Bread

Yes, you heard it right: Paleo flatbread! This recipe is unbelievably easy recipe and makes a fluffy, nutty and flavorful base to support any of your favorite toppings

1. Make the flatbread itself first.  The recipe comes from the Bob's Red Mill, and uses their trusty Paleo flour.  I refuse to use anything else, it's SO easy to use.  The recipe is for pizza crust, so to modify it for a flatbread, cook it at 350° for 12-15 minutes and remove.

2. While the Paleo flatbread base is baking, start cutting up and preparing all of the delicious toppings:

  • 2 Tbsp diced garlic (or more, I always support more garlic)
  • 1/4 small red onion cut into long, thin strips
  • 1 Wild Zora Chili Beef bar, cubed
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1-2 cups organic arugula
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp sea salt

3. 2 minutes before the bread is finished, pull it out and pour half of your extra virgin olive oil over it, and then spread the diced garlic all over it.  Put back in the oven for the final couple minutes.

4. Remove your beautiful, Paleo bread from the oven and let cool for just 3-4 minutes.

5. Add your toppings and drizzle the rest of the olive oil over the top. Make sure to take pictures of your highly photogenic Paleo flatbread that will have your primal friends swooning. 

Plus, don't feel constrained by our toppings! Add what you want, and check here to make sure it's Paleo compliant.

2. 5-Minute Shishito Pepper Recipe


This Paleo, gluten-free snack idea will take you a few minutes to make, and even less time for your friends to devour.  Most people haven't heard of these flavorful little peppers, but they are available in most grocery stores.  

 All you are going to need is:

  • 1 bag shishito peppers
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 tsp sea salt
  • 1 lime (or two if you're feeling really zesty)

 3. Paleo Avocado "Caprese" Skewers

Wild Zora Chili Beef Bar with Avocado Basil Tomato Skewer

Oh Caprese salad, the perfect combination of creamy, salty, acidic and herbaceous. In one bite you get everything you could ever want...but if you're Paleo, the traditional mozzarella cheese is nothing but a daydream.

So, I went on the hunt to find the perfect Paleo substitute and the answer is: AVOCADO OF COURSE! We are not worthy of such an amazing, velvety fruit.

I've also added some meat to the equation, so these are your grandma's Caprese skewers that have received a huge Paleo facelift.

You will need: 

  • Toothpicks
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced ripe avocados
  • Basil in it's full leafy from
  • Wild Zora Chili Beef bars cut into squares
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt

I don't know what kind of party you're throwing, so scale the amounts of each ingredient accordingly. Or make 40 for yourself, no judgment!

It couldn't be easier...

1. Slice the tomatoes, avocados and Wild Zora bars so that they are similar sized pieces.

2. Pick the basil leaves off of the stem and leave them whole.

3. Stab the toothpick through the tomatoes, avocados, chili beef bars, and basil leaves in whichever alternating order feels good to you.

4. Drizzle olive oil over the skewer and sprinkle with salt.

That's it! Your friends will thank you for your thoughtfulness towards their Paleo diet, you have created completely Instagram worthy party food and you can impress everyone by saying 'Caprese' and 'Shishito' every time you walk them through your colorful Paleo food spread. Win, win, win!

6,000 Miles in 16 Days: A Healthy Road Trip

6,000 Miles in 16 Days: A Healthy Road Trip-Wild Zora

Wild Zora on the Road

We’re Adam and Kathryn, also known as Adventures of A+K, and there’s nothing we love more than adventuring. Since moving from Texas to Washington a couple years ago, we have gained a huge love for traveling and the outdoors. On the weekends you can often find us hiking up mountains, chasing waterfalls, driving along the coast, exploring local coffee shops and restaurants, and enjoying everything else that the diverse and beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer. We’re always thinking of our next big adventure and for the holidays we had a crazy idea. What if we drove to Texas and back?

As we dreamt about the idea more and more, we started planning out a route and made it happen! Over 16 days we drove 6,000+ miles from Seattle to Texas and back, stopping in California, Arizona, and New Mexico and at multiple national parks. It was the adventure of a lifetime and we made some of the best memories along the way!

However, one of our concerns before the road trip was how we were going to stay healthy while being away from our kitchen and gym for over two weeks. We try to stick to a very clean diet and with some portions of our trip being in more rural areas, it can be hard to find a healthy meal on the road, so we knew we had to bring Wild Zora along for the ride!

And we’re so glad we did! Wild Zora was a lifesaver and kept us full and healthy during some of our favorite adventures of the trip. Here are a few of the highlights:

Big Bend National Park

We lived in Texas for 16 years (Kathryn) and 28 years (Adam) and both of us had never made it to Big Bend National Park. It was a big reason why we did the road trip and it was definitely worth the wait! To celebrate finally getting to experience the park, we enjoyed our favorite meat and veggie bars, the Mediterranean lamb, at the top of the Lost Mine hike, which has a crazy view of the mountains. It was truly a special moment for us former Texans!

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

When we arrived to Guadalupe Mountains National Park, we were greeted by an unexpected surprise: snow! Despite leaving our microspikes back in Washington, we hiked to Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas at 8,751 feet. After slipping and sliding our way to the top there was nothing better than a hot and fresh Wild Zora backpacking meal. Not only was it delicious, but it kept our hands warm, which was a huge added bonus!

Big Sur, California

We left our campsite near San Luis Obispo around 4 AM one of the last mornings of our trip (it was rough!) and drove 2.5 hours to Big Sur. We arrived just as the sun was beginning to rise and were starving, so we made two Paleo Meals to Go on the side of the road as we watched a beautiful sunrise illuminate Bixby Bridge. Breakfast on the road (quite literally) has never been so easy or tasted so good!

We have been loving Wild Zora for almost a year now and are so thankful for healthy fuel to do what we love. From the Hoh rainforest in Washington, to the Oregon Coast, to the deserts of Utah, to our road trip, Wild Zora has made adventuring easy and healthy. Here’s to more healthy adventures in 2019!
