Veggie-Lover’s Meatza

  You might think that a pizza without crust, cheese, or tomato sauce is pointless. I guess I agree–you can hardly call a crustless, cheeseless, sauceless dish a “pizza” no matter what it looks like. Enter “meatza”! Meatza replaces crust with a thin layer of seasoned meat upon which you can add your favorite sauce…

The Healing Power of Humor Do you remember how it felt the first time you made your baby laugh?

AIP Food Storage Basics

One of the things that can become a big deal when you start AIP is food storage. Basically, prior to AIP, I really didn’t think a whole lot about this topic. I didn’t do much batch cooking, so I didn’t worry about how to store four quarts of bone broth or how long three baking…

Strawberry Basil Balsamic Ice Cream

  Strawberries, basil, and balsamic vinegar are three of my all-time favorite ingredients. If balsamic vinegar is strawberry’s soul mate, basil is their closest friend. When I first moved to Austin, I used to love the strawberry milkshakes with balsamic glaze at Alamo Drafthouse. It only seemed logical to make an ice cream inspired by…

Turnip-Dill Puree with Crisp Bacon and Chives

Turnips are sort of one of those vegetables . . . the kind that most folks don’t eat often, but even so vaguely deem “yucky.”  Poor turnips!  Turnips are part of the Brassica family of veggies, which makes them sulfur-rich.  If you follow Dr. Terry Wahls, you know she advocates eating plenty of sulfur-rich vegetables,…

Breakfast on the Autoimmune Protocol

  Because some of the most traditional American breakfast foods are out during the elimination diet, a lot of people struggle with what to eat for their morning meals. Bread, cereal, oatmeal, and even eggs are all out for the time being (and lets face it, for most of us, gluten is out forever). What…

The Argument For Nutrient Density

  While it may seem that the Autoimmune Protocol is merely an elimination diet, there is more to it than simply avoiding certain foods. In fact, I believe that ignoring the nutrient-density piece is one of the largest obstacles to success when people adopt AIP. While there is a lot of focus on eliminating grains,…

Acorn Squash Soup with Dandelion Pesto

Lately I’ve been trying to increase the variety of vegetables I eat on a regular basis, especially those that are wild plants and not cultivated. Dandelion greens fit this bill perfectly, and although I was initially put off by their bitterness, I’ve grown to enjoy using them in my cooking week to week. Making them into…
