Strawberry Ginger Ice Cream Sundae

As rule of thumb when I make ice cream to eat the same day, I use less (say, a couple of tablespoons) or even no honey. I really do prefer to keep my consumption down and this can easily be done, especially in the summer, by choosing ripe and naturally sweet fruits. That said, when…

Stuffed-Pineapple-680x450

Stuffed Pineapple

This recipe is based on an old favorite I used to make in my pre-Paleo days, which involved baking a mixture of pineapple, walnuts, coconut shreds and rum into hollowed-out pineapple halves. I despaired of ever coming up with an autoimmune protocol-friendly version of that recipe…until I decided to also stuff it with everyone’s other…

Watermelon Shrub Horizontal

Watermelon-Basil Shrub (A Drink!)

Can I interest you in drinking a shrub? Uh, what? As strange as it sounds, shrubs are a “drinking vinegar” that dates far, far back as a way to preserve fruits. It was most popular in the U.S. during colonial times, but if you are from the Deep South you might know that it never…

Lox-&-Everything-Landscape

Lox & Everything Sweet Potatoes

Now that I’m back in Chicago for the summer, I have been craving all the ethnic food that lines the streets of downtown. I live right in the heart of the city, so the constant bombardment of glorious pizza smells, posters for homemade pierogis, and LED menus advertising $10 Indian lunch buffets is both torturous…

Hawaiian Salmon

  You know what I used to love in my former life? Hawaiian pizza. One of my high school jobs was working in a pizza place and eating the heck out of some Hawaiian pizza was one of my main duties. Okay, obviously not part of my actual job description, but I put the hurt…

Spiced Baked Chicken with Black Olives, Orange and Thyme | Autoimmune-Paleo.com

Spice Baked Chicken with Black Olives, Orange and Thyme

No matter the season, nor the temperature, to my mind there is always a place for roast chicken and this recipe is no exception. Just a few short moments of attention and a quick dusting of spice results in a more than satisfactory combination of chestnut-crispy skin, together with a flesh succulent and tender over a pool…

Berry-Infused Thai Drinking Vinegar | Autoimmune-Paleo.com

Berry-Infused Thai Drinking Vinegar

  I discovered Thai Drinking Vinegar during Paleo F(x) this year when I visited a highly-rated Thai restaurant near the convention center. Not only is it served alongside the meal to aid with digestion, it’s also delicious! It’s similar to kombucha in flavor, but not nearly as pungent, and it makes a wonderful summer “mocktail”…

Orange & Rose Honey Cake

  I have yet to post a sweet recipe during my six months of contributing recipes to Autoimmune Paleo, but I felt like I owed you one from my past! Growing up, my treat consumption was mostly limited to Middle Eastern desserts like Ma’amoul (date-filled cookies), Baklawa (flaky, nutty, syrupy pastry), and dried Medjool dates…

Cream of Avocado Soup with Crab Meat

  Avocados have become an important part of my diet since I started the autoimmune protocol. I used to think that they would make me fat! Of course, I didn’t know much about nutrient density, healthy fats, and eating right. Did you know that avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable? Avocados are incredibly nutritious…

5 Digestion Mistakes You May Be Making

You’ve heard the phrase: “You are what you eat.” It would be more accurate to say: “You are what you eat, digest and absorb.” Nutrition is essential to healing, and if our digestion is impaired, not only do we become malnourished, but improperly digested food can trigger autoimmune symptoms as proteins enter our bloodstream through…

Zesty Apricot-Thyme BBQ Sauce

Oh BBQ sauce… something that is usually sorely missed while on the elimination diet, due to the copious amounts of seed and nightshade spices it contains! You don’t have to suffer though, as the flavor notes in traditional BBQ sauce can be recreated in an elimination-diet friendly version (except for maybe the extreme heat that…

Bacon-Wrapped Cinnamon Apples

The Autoimmune Protocol has allowed me to develop intuitive eating habits. Instead of craving chips or ice cream, these days my body asks for sea salt, extra carbohydrates, half an avocado, or omega-3 loaded salmon. I plan my meals around these nutritional intuitions so that each one leaves me feeling satisfied and nourished. I was inspired…
