Thanks @ShannonM816 I will check out Well Fed 2.  I'm used to modifying recipes since I have so many allergies.

I didn't realize ghee is not allowed on AIP?


I've seen people who say it is okay, and others who say it isn't. This is one article that explains why it should be left out: http://www.phoenixhelix.com/2015/11/14/to-ghee-or-not-to-ghee/  This article refers to ghee as one of the foods in a "gray area" for AIP: https://www.thepaleomom.com/start-here/the-autoimmune-protocol/  

I don't know whether you should leave it out or not. If you're currently not having issues with it, and it makes life easier for you to have it, I probably wouldn't worry too much about it, but if you are having issues that don't seem to be resolved with other eliminations, maybe going without for a while is something you might try in the future. I know if you're already leaving out a bunch of stuff, sometimes adding one more "no" just feels overwhelming, so go with what you think is best, and be open to trying something different later if that doesn't work.

You can also take the weekly cookup concept and just use your own recipes with foods/spices you can have. It doesn't have to be complicated. 

Trays of roasted or grilled meats and vegetables (grilled requires more active involvement), prep up sauces or make sure that your fridge is packed with olives and other good fats. Simple. Mix and match when it's time for a meal.
