AIP Italian Burgers Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | August 14

Grass-fed beef burgers are not only AIP, Paleo, and Keto, but they’re also just really tasty and easy to make.

So, whip these up no matter what diet you’re on. You can also switch out the seasonings or add in some vegetables to change the flavors.

Here are some different seasoning options for AIP burgers:

  • Thai Burgers – Chopped fresh basil leaves with a dash of coconut aminos
  • Onion Burgers – Finely chopped green onions with onion powder
  • Garlic Burgers – Finely chopped onions with garlic powder
  • Veggie Burgers – Finely chopped asparagus, spinach, and green onions

Test them out and see which one is your favorite. Personally, I find the onions with garlic are delicious every time!

AIP Bread Rolls Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Egg-Free, Nut-Free]

Louise Hendon | October 5

If you’re on an AIP diet or a ketogenic diet, then having good bread is tough! So if you’re looking for a low carbohydrate egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free bread recipe that’s AIP and Ketogenic, then this AIP bread rolls recipe is what you’re looking for!

Because this recipe uses a gelatin egg instead of a regular egg to hold the coconut flour together, you will find that it has a different texture to regular bread. The coconut flour also makes the bread a bit denser and drier, so enjoy it with some extra coconut oil or with some ghee (if you’re ok with ghee in your diet).

AIP Dairy Substitutes for Cheese, Yogurt, Milk, and Ice Cream

Louise | September 6

Getting used to a dairy-free diet can be tough, especially when you have to also avoid so many other foods on AIP.

The food industry makes it even more difficult, as there are hardly any prepared foods that are AIP-friendly.

And then online recipes and cookbooks aren’t much help (unless you buy AIP-specific cookbooks like our’s here).

That’s why we’ve created this list of dairy substitutes. So you can still enjoy some of your favorite recipes – dairy-free and AIP-compliant.

Please note: as always, even if an ingredient is AIP-compliant, if you’re sensitive to it, please avoid it.

AIP Ingredient Swaps for Dairy Products www.healingautoimmune.com/aip-substitute-dairy #aip

Why do you have to avoid dairy on AIP?

While dairy (especially in the raw and fermented forms) can be highly nourishing, it can also be problematic for many people with autoimmune conditions.

In particular, most forms of dairy we eat today is highly processed. Pasteurization destroys the beneficial bacteria and enzymes found in raw dairy that would help us to digest it.

Preservatives are sometimes added to dairy products give them a longer shelf life, and the steroid hormones found in dairy may even increase cancer risk. (1, 2)

These aren’t things you want in your body when you’re trying to heal from an autoimmune illness.

Plus, many people with autoimmune issues have sensitivities to the lactose or casein in dairy products. (3)

Dr. Amy Myers, MD is an advocate for reversing autoimmunity with diet and lifestyle. According to Myers, “Gluten and dairy are at the top of my list of foods you should never eat, especially if you have an autoimmune disease.”

In many cases, you might not think you have those sensitivities even if you do. That’s why it’s very important to avoid all dairy products for at least 30 days and then try introducing them one at a time.

AIP Ingredient Swaps for butter

1. Coconut oil (we like this brand)

The best substitute for butter or ghee on the Paleo autoimmune protocol is coconut oil.

It’s also creamy and reacts in a similar way. It’s great for baked goods or sautéing meats and vegetables.

In some baked recipes, you may be able to use coconut butter (also called coconut manna). Note that coconut butter contains coconut oil as well as dried coconut bits so it doesn’t work well as a cooking oil, but it’s a great substitute for nut butters.

2. Lard

Lard, or pig fat, is another great option instead of butter or ghee. Use it in cooking sautés or baking savory dishes as it does have a slightly “meaty” flavor.

AIP Swaps for milk/cream

Since nut milks, rice milk and soy milk are all out on the Paleo autoimmune protocol, coconut milk and coconut cream are the best substitutes for traditional dairy milk.

The best option is to make your own coconut milk (try this recipe here) as most of the prepackaged brands use guar gum or another non-AIP thickener to create a creamier milk.

Recently I’m seeing more brands that don’t contain funky additives, like this one here. The ingredients are just organic coconut and purified water.

To get coconut cream, just let the canned coconut milk settle for a day. Then carefully open the can and scoop out the coconut cream from the top of the can. The bottom water can be thrown away.

AIP Swaps for cheese

While the most popular types of dairy-free cheese are made from nuts (like cashews), which aren’t allowed on AIP, there are AIP-cheese options…

1. Nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast that looks like yellow ground flakes and tastes cheesy. It’s been popular in vegan cuisine as a cheese-alternative for years, and it’s also AIP-compliant.

As with everything that comes packaged, be sure you check the ingredients and choose a brand that doesn’t have other unwanted ingredients.

Recipes to try that use nutritional yeast:

AIP Ingredient Swaps For Dairy Products

2. Butternut “Cheese”

This AIP cheese recipe uses butternut squash, tapioca flour, nutritional yeast, gelatin, and avocado oil to create a cheese texture, color, as well as flavor.

3. Zucchini “Cheese”

Don’t have butternut squash or want a lower carb option for cheese? Check out this recipe using zucchini.

4. Cauliflower “Cheese”

This recipe uses cauliflower to create a white-colored sliceable dairy-free cheese. Omit the black pepper to make it AIP-friendly.

And this recipe produces a beautiful golden yellow cauliflower AIP cheese (colored using turmeric).

Cauliflower is also super versatile so you can also use it to create a cheesy dip like this recipe here (which is flavored using nutritional yeast).

AIP Swaps for yogurt

The main alternative to regular yogurt on the autoimmune protocol is coconut yogurt.

While many stores in the US and in Europe have started selling coconut yogurt, it’s often loaded with non-AIP ingredients (like guar gum). So the best option is to make your own.

Check out our recipe for it here: Instant Pot Coconut Yogurt Recipe.

Instant Pot Coconut Yogurt Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP] #paleo #keto #aip - http://healingautoimmune.com/instant-pot-coconut-yogurt-recipe

AIP Swaps for ice cream

It’s possible to eat ice cream while on AIP…it just involves making the ice cream using coconut cream instead of the traditional cream/milk and egg yolks.

Enjoy Your Favorite "Non-AIP" Foods While Healing Your Body!

Your health is worth sticking to AIP...but sometimes, you need to have a little fun and change things up. Breakfast can get boring, and it’s so easy to get stuck in a rut.

Hi, I'm Louise.

Several years ago, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I had constant pain, swelling, fatigue...and no one could find the source.

When my doctors told me I’d be on medication for the rest of my life, I knew I wanted to manage my symptoms another way and started my journey to healing my body.

And let me tell you...it was tough.

Yes, I felt so much better when I gave up grains, dairy, nuts, etc.

But every time I sat down to a meal it was a struggle.

I couldn’t eat the foods I wanted to. All my favourites -- potatoes, pasta and tomato sauce -- were off limits.

Breakfast was the worst! Pancakes, waffles, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt and granola...even bacon and eggs isn’t AIP friendly. It felt like I had no options.

Every morning I would get up and open my fridge and just STARE at the inside, wondering...what am I going to eat today?

Every morning I would get up and open my fridge and just STARE at the inside, wondering...what am I going to eat today?

It felt like there was nothing I could eat…I started every day feeling hungry and discouraged, with maybe an apple for breakfast.

It was a pretty terrible way to start my mornings. But if I wanted to heal my body, I knew I needed to stick with AIP.

So I started experimenting with AIP ingredients to see if I could recreate my favorite “non-AIP” breakfasts...

I started with my favorite...

Waffles...

Then I moved on to other breakfast favorites, like:

Pancakes... Oatmeal... Hash browns...

Pancakes...

Oatmeal...

Hash browns...

I even figured out how to make TOAST! ...sort of.

It’s way better than the alternative!

The best part was...my “experiments” were working! All of these AIP recipes tasted great, and I was starting to feel better.

It wasn’t instantaneous of course and it wasn’t just eating AIP, but over time I was able to get off my medication and stay symptom-free.

But what my “experiments” showed me was that I could stick to AIP and that it didn’t need to be a struggle.

Now, I was excited about waking up in the morning. Everything was so tasty and delicious!

And other people started telling me how great my recipes were.

And other people started telling me how great my recipes were.

And I started to wonder...what other foods could I make AIP and have for breakfast?

Sausages... Stir-fries... Teas and yogurts...

I even managed to sneak in a pizza recipe...

Sausages...

Stir-fries...

Teas and yogurts...

I even managed to sneak in a pizza recipe...

Pizza for breakfast, anyone..?

About a year ago, I started a website - healingautoimmune.com - because I realized that AIP was so much harder for most people than it needed to be.

When I started making my breakfast recipes available on the site, people LOVED them.

TESTIMONIAL:

I am strictly AIP at this point and I am getting better every day. I have tried every AIP cookbook on the market. They are all hit or miss, except yours. Every single recipe in your cookbook is actually fabulous. Even my family loves every recipe.

~ Maria Wollford Spillane

I get emails every day from people telling me how much they love my recipes, and how much easier being on an AIP diet is when they can eat delicious food.

That’s when I decided that I had to create this...

34 AIP Easter Recipes You Don’t Want To Miss This Year!

Louise Hendon | April 16

It may seem difficult to put together a tasty Easter dinner when you’re on AIP, but fear not! It’s not as difficult as you think, and you won’t have to make separate dishes for yourself and the rest of the family.

This recipe collection includes appetizers, entrees, side dishes and desserts that will all make you smack your lips. I’m pretty sure no-one will even realize they are AIP-compliant unless you decide to tell them!

To get the party started, I’ve added some of my favorite breakfast and brunch recipes. For me, the holidays (any holidays, really) are all about slow mornings and spending time with your loved ones, so I like recipes that are easy to whip up or prepare ahead. Casseroles are always a hit, and you won’t need much time for preparation.

Some of the appetizers on this list would make great breakfast dishes, also! For example the salmon cakes; they are sooo tasty – and also quite inexpensive, if you’re cooking for a large crowd.

If you wish to get by with as little cooking as possible, go with the pressure cooker pot roast and some bacon wrapped asparagus. But here’s my best advice: do not skip dessert!

My favorite dessert in this collection is probably the coconut cream pie, and you won’t have to be a professional chef to make it! If you want something even easier, try the blueberry crumble. Your guests will be talking about it long after the holidays!

Click here to see how you can make a super easy Easter morning breakfast pudding that is AIP-compliant!

AIP Crockpot Chicken Recipes – 30 Family Favorites!

Louise Hendon | April 1

Grab some chicken on sale, get your crockpot out, and start creating AIP-friendly meals that everyone in your family will love!

While some may consider chicken a boring choice of meat, I have to disagree. Some of my favorite and most flavorful recipes are made with chicken, and I love how versatile it is.

Just one look at this recipe collection will prove my point… We’ve got chilis, soups, curry, wings – and they’re all made effortlessly in your slow cooker.

Slow cooking is great when you want to:

  • prepare ahead for the week; just cook your choice of chicken to use in lettuce wraps, salads etc.
  • save time; you won’t have to stand by the stove with your pots and pans all day.
  • skip the massive clean-up; quite often crockpot recipes are one-pot meals.

One of my favorite make-ahead recipes must be the shredded chicken. You can eat it with anything; lettuce wraps, AIP-friendly naan bread or throw it on top of some greens and you’ve got delicious lunch ready in 3 minutes.

If you’ve ever wondered how to cook a whole chicken easily, this video gives you the perfect instructions. Please omit the black pepper to make this AIP-friendly. You’ll also get a bonus tip on how to make mouth-watering, homemade broth!

36 AIP Chicken Thigh Recipes Your Family Will Devour

Louise Hendon | February 12

Sometimes it can be slightly difficult to find ingredients that are suitable for your AIP diet, especially if you’re trying to stick to your budget. I love chicken thighs; they’re inexpensive, available everywhere, and so easy to cook!

There are so many ways to prepare chicken thighs – I do love them just cooked in the oven with a bit of salt, but I also enjoy trying these variations. There sure are many! Here are my 3 favorites:

  1. Soups
    When we’re talking about chicken perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is soup. I can’t think of a more comforting meal when I’m feeling a bit under the weather, or when the weather is chilly and I need something that will keep me warm.
  2. Exotic Flavors
    Lately, I’ve tried more exotic recipes, like Lebanese chicken or grilled chicken thighs with pineapple-mint salsa. I can highly recommend both!
  3. Easy-to-make Family Meals
    I’ve included several slow cooker and instant pot recipes to make your next AIP chicken dinner super easy. How about some Italian chicken in the instant pot? Or teriyaki chicken in the slow cooker? If you prefer cooking your meals in the oven, I recommend the chicken and mushroom casserole.

Here’s a great example of how you can cook crispy and tender chicken thighs without much effort! Click Here to Watch The Video (please note you should omit the black pepper and chili pepper to make this recipe AIP-friendly)
