Air Fried Paleo Wings

Y’all – Just got my new air fryer for Christmas and it’s AMAZING. You can throw nearly anything in there and cook it health-ily in half the time! Our first experiment was with chicken wings and OMG they were the best tasting wings I’ve ever had.. (Not to toot my own horn 😉 )

We bought the Cooks 2.5L Air Fryer from JCPenney for $49.99 and it works fantastic!

I wish I could add more photos and details to this post but it’s literally just that easy that it only takes a few paragraphs! We made two batches: Half BBQ and half buffalo. In each bowl we threw our wings in that we had bought from Sprouts then seasoned them with salt, pepper and cajun seasoning then topped them with paleo-friendly sauces!

I set our air fryer to 360°F, placed the wings in the basket evenly and cooked them for 15 minutes. It could fit about 7-8 wings and we had 15 so it worked out perfect for each batch. We removed them from the basket and they were cooked completely through! The skin was incredibly crispy and flavorful (Without the need of deep frying!)

We’re officially hooked and already trying to figure out what ELSE we could make with it! We are running back to the store today to grab some more wings so we can make some for some friends coming over for the Cowboys Playoff game and I cannot wait for someone else to try them out!

What are some recipes you love to make in the air fryer? Would love some more paleo suggestions!

Football is Coming BACK!

Anyone else ECSTATIC that football is coming back?! WE ARE. We’re mega huge football fans in my house and always have large parties and delicious food.. But when you’re a healthy eater the options at stores are not very “friendly” at all.. So here are some delicious alternatives to some tailgating faves!

Our favorites are pork green chili sliders (with Birch Benders Paleo Pancake Mix made into buns), buffalo chicken (made with drumsticks and buffalo sauce), and bacon wrapped guacamole peppers! They’re all incredibly delicious – And SPICY. Which is of course necessary for football Sundays 😉

Today, we decided to have some family also from Louisiana to come over and root for the LSU Tigers with us! So we wanted to have some good drinks to serve everyone that’s also paleo still! SO I just randomly came up with an idea for a drink and it came out amazing! Try it for yourselves and let me know what you thought or what you did differently ❥
