Best AI protocol recipes and ideas

Recommended Posts

My wife is still having significant digestive and other health issues even after eating very clean/Whole 30 for about 6 months. She's not ready to make the jump to the AI protocol but I want to start collecting recipes and techniques, as I see it looming in our future at some point. What AIP recipes do you love? What seasonings? I was really depressed by Mel's summary of her AI protocol experience so I want the best bag of tricks I can find.

Oh, and... we'd probably still be eating poultry and seafood but not red meat, to make things more complicated. :blink:

Thanks!

The thing that really made the AIP doable for me was making my own breakfast patties. I use ground beef, but you can use any meat you like. Make a big batch with fresh herbs and some salt, and either bake in the oven or cook on the stovetop and freeze with wax paper between. I heat mine up in the morning in a skillet along with leftover veggies from the night before. I make sure breakfast is my biggest, most nutritious meal, that way if I run into trouble later in the day I can get by with fruits/veggies because I have already had a good chunk of protein.

I do a lot of batch cooking so that I don't spend hours in the kitchen every day. I find red meat particularly nourishing to my autoimmune condition, so I eat a lot of it - can't help you too much with poultry recipes! I like to buy the cheapest cuts of grass-fed meat and either cook them in the pressure cooker or braise for awhile to make them tender. Fish is easy because it doesn't need too many seasonings - lemon, garlic, herbs, maybe some coconut oil and you are good to go.

I have some AIP recipes on my site: http://autoimmunepaleo.wordpress.com/recipes/

Here are some other good resources for recipes:

I am also working on an ebook of recipes for the autoimmune protocol.

Hope that is helpful! :)
