Red velvet cake is definitely out for those following autoimmune protocol. Luckily, red velvet flavors are not! With this AIP red velvet smoothie, you can have all the flavors you love in a healthy, and sugar-free, package. Red beets and bananas form the backbone of this smoothie with coconut milk for added creaminess. Carob powder provides the chocolatey goodness you expect from red velvet and a spoonful of coconut cream tops it all off. This smoothie is healthy enough for breakfast and indulgent enough for dessert.
When you’re following autoimmune protocol, getting a pumpkin spice latte isn’t as easy as walking into your neighborhood coffee shop and placing an order. Between the dairy, the sugar, and any other additives crammed into the cup, sickly sweet store-bought lattes are off the table. However, all pumpkin spice lattes are not created equal. Our AIP pumpkin spice latte will put this fall favorite back in reach without all the inflammation-causing ingredients found in the original. So, if you find yourself craving that Starbucks latte, try this one instead. You just might be surprised with the results.
When you’re avoiding dairy and grains, you might think a creamy cheesy pasta is out of reach. However, with a few thoughtful substitutions, you can make a creamy fettucine that rivals any Italian restaurant. To make this dish autoimmune protocol-friendly we have to rebuild it from the ground up starting with the noodles. Leeks, garlic, and mushrooms add a lovely vegetable flavor to the cheese-less cheese sauce, which is made with coconut cream and nutritional yeast. With bacon and a few sprigs of flat leaf parsley to garnish, you won’t miss with dairy or the gluten in this recipe.
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:

I gain a lot of inspiration just by being out in the world. Just recently I was at a gathering that served – you guessed it – coconut cream pie.
While I knew better than to eat it, I channeled my cravings for that sweet pie into figuring out how to make an AIP coconut cream pie recipe. You can thank me later.
