Zuppa-Toscana- 900x600

Zuppa Toscana

I’ve mentioned before how much I love recreating foods from around the world to suit the autoimmune protocol. Believe it or not, my favorite cuisine to play with is Italian. You might think all the grains, dairy, and nightshades make for a tough time of it, but I have thoroughly enjoyed a wide variety of…

AIP Is Not A Religion

“We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are.” –Adelle Davis, Let’s Get Well The Autoimmune Protocol changed my life.

Citrus Braised Lamb Shoulder

As much as I love beef, sometimes I get a hankering for red meat with a little more flavor, and lamb almost always does the trick. While a lot of people are used to lamb chops and leg of lamb, I have fallen in love with braising lamb shoulder. This method produces some delicious vegetables, as…

Roasted Vegetables with a Salsa Verde

I love roasted vegetables, they taste so scrumptious and what’s more they pretty much look after themselves in the oven, leaving you to concentrate on other things. This recipe is a good assortment of colours, textures and flavours but the real beauty is that it can also be completely dependent on seasonal availability, or what…

Bre’anna made the details of family meals a strictly confidential matter for…

Prosciutto Meatloaf Muffins with Fig Jam

This recipe stems purely from my hedonistic quest for each meal to be memorable. We have all seen fig and prosciutto thin crust pizzas on menus by now. For good reason! Salty prosciutto and sweet figs complement each other well. Plus, if you stuff ground beef in between those two things, you’re going to be…

Why Food Intolerance Testing Doesn’t Work

If Only It Were Easy Let’s face it: the paleo autoimmune protocol is hard to do. If we could just take a test to identify our food intolerances, it would be so much easier! So, why don’t we? Unfortunately, food intolerance testing is unreliable, giving both false positive and false negative results. An elimination diet…

Indian cuisine is my all-time favorite. Creamy curries, aromatic seasonings, spicy meats offset with cooling yogurt-based sauces and desserts… oh my, I’m in heaven at the thought. Aloo Gobi is a dish traditionally made with potatoes, tomatoes, and cauliflower in a rich blend of mostly seed-based seasonings. By subbing taro, carrots, and safe spices, my autoimmune protocol…

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…
