Almond Paleo Stuffing – Boosting Vitamin E for Great Skin

Want gorgeous, glowing, youthful looking skin? Without forking out a small fortune on overpriced beauty products? Easy answer – almonds. Not only are these little nuts tasty, they’re incredibly good for you, as they are rich in vitamin E, one of the essential nutrients to protect and restore skin, as well as boosting brainpower. So try our Almond Paleo Stuffing below!

Almonds are super-versatile. If you find that eating healthy can get a little repetitive and dull, then how about fresh, delicious home-made stuffing? Made with whole almonds, this has a rich, moist texture that’s full of flavour. With the added benefit of being both wheat and dairy free, it’s great for paleo diets, as well as for anyone with dietary intolerances. And while stuffings tend usually tend to have bread-based, starchy ingredients that can taste a little stodgy and heavy, this is made with completely natural ingredients, with no bulky filler, lacking nutritional value.

Making homemade stuffing is the easiest way to ensure it’s always wheat free, dairy free and has all natural ingredients, in other words is a pure Paleo stuffing. Generally stuffing is made with bread or some sort of starch to pad it out, as the Paleo diet doesn’t included these ingredients we’ve been looking at ways to create super tasty recipes for you to try.

I’ve chosen almonds for this recipe, which are perfect to provide a nice texture, taste and are not an expensive ingredient.

Almonds might usually be associated with sweet treats – cakes, biscuits and marzipan. But this sweet, simple and affordable nut lends itself really well to savoury recipes too. With a wonderful texture that has just the right combination of moisture and crumbliness, it makes for a really satisfying take on traditional stuffing, with the added perk of being really good for you. Vitamin E is one of the essential nutrients your body can’t make for itself, and being packed with antioxidants and vitamin E, almonds can help promote healthier skin, a stronger body and brighter mind – by aiding muscle growth and recovery after a workout, clearing up free radicals that can cause skin dryness and wrinkles, and boost neural growth.

All in all, a perfect stuffing recipe you can enjoy without guilt!

Paleo stuffing is the perfect partner for virtually anything you might want to give an extra boost of flavour too. From aubergines to Portobello mushrooms, to traditional roasts with chicken or turkey. Don’t be afraid to stuff vegetables  – they make a fantastically filling and nutritious meal, and are ideal if you fancy a bit of a break from meat. A stuffed, roasted pepper adds a brilliant pop of colour to the dining table – and leftovers are also delicious for a quickie lunch, too.

But if you like your roast the old school way, Paleo stuffing works wonderfully with poultry and lamb. With sweet, juicy almonds, it keeps meat tender and moist, while adding depth and flavour. And for the perfect Paleo stuffed roast chicken – pull back the skin of the crown and place the mixture in, keeping it all firmly placed with some handy kebab skewers. The results? Perfectly moist chicken and a delicious Paleo meal!

  1. This sounds great. Stuffing is usually all bread based, not great being Paleo. I’ll be making this for my family this Easter, stuffing a chicken.
    Thanks for sharing!
