Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chicken Alfredo

By Fitfulfocus @fitfulfocus

As you know, I’ve been trying to Paleo-ize some of Will’s favorite foods, so that his Paleo diet experiment doesn’t seem so awful. I think I’ve been doing a pretty good job with things like Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies and Paleo Chili, but I wanted to take on a whole other challenge – Italian food. Italian food is loaded with Paleo no-nos. Pasta, cream, breaded chicken.

So what dish to make? Will’s a fan of Fettuccini Alfredo, so Alfredo it is!

How exactly does one make Alfredo without pasta or dairy? Like this:

Replace the pasta with zoodles. Saute up some unbreaded garlic chicken, and create a creamless creamy sauce out of…

…wait for it…

…cauliflower!

Does it taste exactly like fettuccini alfredo? No – not exactly, but it is a great healthy alternative to the usually carb and cream laden dish. 

Plus, like most recipes on this blog, it’s very easy to make.
