This pie is based on a prosciutto arugula pizza once eaten at a trattoria high above the ocean in the impossibly scenic village of Positano, which clings to the cliffs above Italy's Amalfi Coast. Though you'll have a tough time re-creating the setting, this combination of ingredients flirts with those magical flavors.

Paleo moroccan salmon with quinoa
Mitch Mandel and Thomas MacDonald

This sweet and savory combination of spices could be rubbed on chicken or pork, but it takes especially well to the (healthy) fattiness of the salmon. The quinoa pilaf is a healthy, complex, and textured grain that gives this recipe a hearty, filling feel, too. It might become your new favorite salmon pairing!

vegan sausage sheet pan
Carlene Thomas/Eat This, Not That!

When it comes to plant-based sausages, there are lots of options on the market. Just like with any other grocery item, your best bet is to look for a nutrition label with a short ingredient list of recognizable foods. Make sure the sausage contains a decent amount of protein, and if there's some fiber in there, that's an added bonus. Stay away from plant 'meats' that are predominantly made up of carbohydrates.

air fryer breaded pork chop 1
Carlene Thomas/Eat This, Not That!

How do you make crispy breaded pork chops in a health-conscious way? Using an air fryer, of course! It will cut down on prep and cooking time as well as a substantial amount of calories and fat.

Paleo roast pork loin with white beans
Mitch Mandel and Thomas MacDonald

The Italian take on the pig is the opposite: They embrace and use the whole animal in a variety of ingenious and economizing ways. And none is more dramatic than porchetta, a whole suckling pig stuffed with fennel and herbs and roasted until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. We've ditched the whole pig but applied the same flavor-packed treatment to our favorite cut: the lean, meaty loin.

Paleo chicken adobo
Mitch Mandel and Thomas MacDonald

Chicken adobo is a staple of the Philippines, a dish so delicious and simple that it's a wonder it's not a weekday standard in houses across America. The key is to reduce the sauce down to a syrup thick enough to cling to the chicken and infuse your meal with a huge jolt of savory garlic-soy flavor.
