Many folks get intimidated with the thought of elimination diets. They think it would be too restrictive and boring. They worry that they might never get to enjoy a meal again. And they would be so wrong! The AIP diet, even though it eliminates all foods with any kind of allergenic potential like dairy, gluten, soy, nightshades, grains and refined sugar, is all about nourishing and nutrient dense foods. If you see all the different AIP recipes that I and my fellow AIP bloggers have been posting over the years, you will realize that you don’t need to feel deprived when you are on the Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) diet.
And now there is one more brand new resource for folks on AIP which is guaranteed to take any boredom out of AIP ! ‘The Global Paleo AIP cookbook’, is a community ecookbook which is the brainchild of Bethany Darwin of Adventures in Partaking and has recipes from all over the world! This ebook is a treasure and an absolute treat! There is so much variety in the recipes -From Indian Fish Cutlets to Argentinian Carne Picada to an Irish Stew and Bao Bing -a Chinese dessert! Whoa that’s exciting right? Scroll down below to get the recipe for ‘Indian fish cutlets’ that will give you an idea of all the exciting recipes in this book.
Some stats about this book:
