‘Chicken with Tabbouleh’ from ‘AIP by Season’

Chicken Tabbouleh (Paleo, AIP)

Hooray! New Cookbook on the block! This recipe of ‘Marinated Chicken with Tabbouleh’ is just a glimpse of all the gorgeous recipes you can find in this brand new cookbook ‘AIP by Season’ that just launched today! Ever since my fellow AIP blogger and good friend, Samantha Teague from ‘The Unskilled Cavewoman’  reached out to me a few months ago with the idea for this project, I have been super excited!  Why was I so keen? Well for starters, eating more of seasonal produce has been a goal of mine since last year. Although we have not been completely successful in shifting to eating seasonally, we have been trying to eat more of seasonal fruits and vegetables as they are available from our local farms.

Do you know that the nutrient density of a vegetable or fruit is dependent upon its ripeness level in its natural growing season. The longer it takes a product to be transported from the farm to a market (or super markets) the less nutrients it has! Studies have shown that the vitamin content of vegetables are twice as high when they are in season versus when they were transported a long distance and ‘ripened’ under artificial conditions.

The second reason I was so excited was because this cookbook would not only have recipes by season but the recipes would also be all AIP compliant! How neat!  One could just browse the recipes by season and decide what healthy AIP dish to cook for supper that night!

This project has turned out to be such a delightful one and this cookbook has turned out to be so much more than what I expected it to be! All the 22 contributors to this book have shared such attractive, vibrant and delicious recipes that cooking those recipes in your kitchen with the freshest produce from that week will make your heart sing and your body will thank you for all that goodness!
