The Great Sydney AIP Picnic!

Yesterday, Sunday 1st March, was our first public gathering of the AIP Supper Club! It started as a beautiful evening back in November with Jo from This Sydney Life and Rory, The Paleo PI. We shared (AIP compliant!) food, stories and information and realised what a lovely thing it is to pass time in the company of people who get who you are, what you are doing and why you are doing it. And we decided we wanted to share this experience with other AIP peeps!

Roasted or baked chicken is such a favourite of mine. It’s usually pretty cheap, it doesn’t take much for it to taste amazing and you can keep the bones to make stock! Yay!! Even If I’m not having a whole chicken (like for this recipe, where I used the super juicy thighs), I just collect together the little bones, freeze them and keep adding to my stash until I have enough to boil up for a good old bone broth. Win-ning! Continue Reading

Meat and 3 Veg Meatballs

 

I love making meatballs, they are so easy to batch cook and great to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And these little babies are my new favourites! Not only are they a delicious way to get extra veg into your meal, they also pack a great anti-inflammatory punch from turmeric, garlic and ginger.

I’ve been able to reintroduce raw cacao into my diet! I know – exciting!! After 5 months with no chocolate it’s been really nice to get that flavour back – plus the antioxidant hit that raw cacao gives. If you’re following the autoiummune protocol (AIP) and haven’t added raw cacao back in yet you can easily sub carob which has it’s own health benefits, including being a rich source of phosphorous and calcium.

How to Stay AIP on Trips Away!

I’ve recently returned from a 2 week road trip spent visiting friends and checking out a couple of places we haven’t stopped at before – it was awesome! There’s just something about road trips that gives me a real sense of freedom – and I love that! We were also catching up with some friends who we hadn’t seen in quite a while and that’s always good fun too :) Continue Reading

But What Do I Eat For Breakfast? Check Out This New AIP Breakfast Cookbook!

 

85 AIP Breakfasts

Check out this great new e-book!

 

My biggest question when I decided to start the Autoimmune Protocol was, seriously, “but what will I eat for breakfast?”. And it’s really hard to think outside the (cereal) box when we’re so used to eating grains! For me, breakfast would usually be would be toast, porridge, or muesli, a couple of boiled eggs, or yoghurt with berries and nuts (yummm….still missing that one). On AIP we can’t have any of these things! So what do we eat? Continue Reading
