Creamy Chicken-Cauli Vegetable Soup (Coconut-Free, Instant Pot)

  While the Autoimmune Protocol does not specifically exclude coconut products, it tends to be one of the top ingredients people avoid due to allergies or sensitivities. Eating coconut-free can make preparing AIP meals that much trickier, because coconut products are often used to add texture, creaminess, and a high-quality fat source to meals. I get many, many emails, comments, and direct messages from members ...

Until ...

These AIP Nacho Cheese Fries are loaded with healthy ingredients, not chemicals. This is a delicious way to enjoy your favorite not-so-guilty pleasure. New AIPers might have a few questions about the ingredients in this recipe: Are olives AIP friendly? Yes as long as they don’t contain any ingredients that aren’t AIP friendly.

Turkey Breakfast Hash

  Breakfast!  It’s probably the trickiest thing to get used to on the AIP.  Am I right?  I gotchu. You need something that will get you through the morning – something with carbs to get you going, protein to sustain you, and vegetables to nourish you.  You want something to gently welcome you to the day.  Nothing too weird.  And maybe you’re just not ready ...
