Mickey Trescott has written an absolute masterpiece of a cookbook with The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook. This is the first cookbook of its kind, a complete cookbook that follows the strictest version of the paleo autoimmune protocol (no sneaky seed-based spices!), from kitchen staples to quick meals for busy weeknights, to meals you can entertain with, to comfort foods, to decadent desserts (yes, you read that right). This cookbook makes the autoimmune protocol accessible! With food lists, breakfast ideas, suggested kitchen tools, tips for batch cooking and even two complete 4-week meal plans with shopping lists, this cookbook will not only get you started with the autoimmune protocol but it will show you that food can still be delicious and that food can still nurture your soul as well as your body.
The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook is the first cookbook I've seen dedicated to providing safe foods to those following the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol. But more than that, it's intoxicatingly pretty. It's energetic and enticing. I found myself believing exctly the author's goal - you can still be a foodie and absolutely enjoy the art of cooking while restricting foods to only those nutrient-dense and healing foods outlined. With meal plans, shopping lists and easy to understand explanations - this is a fantastic resource for those working to put their autoimmune disease in remission!
Mickey's first-hand experience with autoimmune disease and her professional background in cooking make The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook a well-rounded and accessible resource for anyone interested in reclaiming their health by way of hearty, healthy whole foods.
I know a lot of folks struggle with implementing the Autoimmune Protocol. Mickey Trescott has beautifully laid out every aspect, so simply, with explanations, shopping lists and recipes that will excite any palate. She indulges a love of good food, as though there are no restrictions. I thank Mickey for this wonderful testament to how delicious the Autoimmune Protocol can be, with proper interpretation.
Finally, a cookbook specific to those who are going through the process of an elimination or autoimmune diet protocol. At hashimoto's 411 we've always told our members to focus on what they can have instead of what they can't have but now she has created a resource for them. Giving up foods is a huge emotional process for most people but having a cookbook full of beautiful and tasty dishes makes the process inspiring, empowering and much less daunting.
The autoimmune community is beyond lucky to count Mickey Trescott as one of our own. Her new book, The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook is going to revolutionize our previously ho-hum AIP menus. After a full year of following the Autoimmune Protocol I was desperately searching for some new meal ideas to liven up my menus, as I paged through my copy I literally gasped with excitement (the pictures are gorgeous). AIers dedicated to their healing need look no further. Mickey has perfect resource prepared for all of us.
