Cauliflower is the unsung hero of the AIP diet…
…and that’s not just because you can use cauliflower to create replacements for naan bread, pizza crusts, tacos, and rice.
Although we’ll admit, that’s a big part of why we love cauliflower so much! Finding AIP-friendly alternatives to our favorite dishes can make the diet much easier to stick to, after all. But you can use cauliflower in much more creative ways, too.
From delicious dips to simple sides and exciting entrees, you can turn cauliflower into pretty much anything! You’ll find all sorts of surprises in this list – did you know cauliflower makes a great base for AIP hummus?

Being on AIP diet is a great excuse to throw a BBQ party! There are plenty of grilled dishes that are perfect for this diet, as long as you keep a few simple things in mind.
To help you plan for your next backyard feast, we are presenting our favorite AIP grilling recipes for you to try. There are so many options you’re going to have a hard time deciding on your menu!
Chicken is always a safe option that both, kids and grandparents enjoy. Why not try AIP-friendly grilled drumsticks, or maybe you’d rather have the scrumptious AIP stuffed chicken?
My favorites on this list are the organ meat recipes! Organ meats (or offal) seem to be overlooked these days, which is a shame.
People tend to think they’re not very tasty, but when you cook them right you’re going to end up with a mouthwatering meal. Grilling and organ meats go together really well – that’s why we’ve included some AIP barbecue recipes made of liver, heart, and tongue.
Why You Should Incorporate Organ Meats In Your Diet* Organ meats are nutritious with plenty of B-vitamins, magnesium, iron and zinc* They are often cheaper then other cuts of meat* Organ meats are a great source of protein* When you eat offal you are helping reduce food waste
What is a BBQ without a great BBQ sauce? Unfortunately most store-bought BBQ sauces are not good for your AIP diet.
You’ll find several easy-to-make barbecue sauce recipes on our list, each one tastier than the other. And you won’t have to worry about any ingredients that might cause trouble with your diet, since these are carefully thought out and nightshade-free!
Sometimes, AIP feels like a constant battle.
On the one hand…you feel so much better.
On the other…you get so bored of eating this way. Sitting down to the same boring chicken and salad every night…none of the various flavors and textures and aromas you used to enjoy.
Well, fear not!
There is a cure for food boredom.
No, we can’t change what foods are allowed on AIP. But we CAN help you prepare them in new and interesting ways!
Changing up how you season and prepare a simple chicken breast can do wonders for dinner time. It takes it from just chicken to a delicious AIP-friendly meal that won’t make your autoimmune disease flare up!
In this post we’ve got chicken soups, stir fries, dinners, and more, in all kinds of flavors: citrus, honey, garlic, ginger, asian-inspired, classic American, and more.
Try a few and end the boredom!
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:
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)
Granted – being on an AIP diet can be a challenge sometimes. But you don’t see me struggling when I’m stuffing my face with these incredibly crunchy AIP chip recipes!
You may not be able to enjoy the store-bought potato chips that used to be your favorite. And why should you? We’ve got 3 dozen super delicious and healthy alternatives for you.
Everything from seasoned kale chips to cinnamon-flavored banana chips, to coconut, or apple chips are on this list. Nope, you won’t be struggling with your diet – the major struggle is trying to figure out which one of these to make first.
I bet you never would have thought of snacks like baked cucumber chips, or Brussels sprouts chips. Just be careful since they can both be extremely addictive – don’t say I didn’t warn you!
What I love about these AIP chips is that they’re more than just snacks. Sure, you’ll probably want to devour them as they are, but there are many ways to enjoy them:
– Coconut chips are perfect for decorating baked AIP treats – or dairy-free ice cream!
– Sprinkle some crispy kale chips on top of your lunch dish for an extra crunch.
– Mix banana and apple chips with AIP-friendly coconut yogurt for a yummy breakfast.
– Serve seasoned chips as a side dish, with your favorite entree.
– In a pinch, a bag of homemade AIP chips can work as a quick lunch on a busy workday.
– Whip up a tasty dip and serve the chips as a game night snack.
While a food dehydrator can be really handy when making vegetable chips, you won’t have to buy one just to make these. Cooking the chips in a low-temperature oven for a longer period of time will do the trick.
By now, everyone knows how nutritious spinach is. And how can you not? It’s the original superfood! And, although it’s perfect for people on AIP, a spinach salad day after day can get a little dull. That’s why I’ve put together this list of 36 AIP-friendly spinach recipes.
Forget the salads – we’ve developed tons of finger-licking recipes chock full of this hearty green! From savory spinach chicken meatballs to creamy spinach and avocado dips, you’ll find spinach in every nook and cranny of this list.
From super-trendy “green smoothies” bursting with greens to spinach guacamole (trust us, it’s delicious!) to salt and lime spinach chips (perfect for snacking!), every recipe is nutrition-filled green bomb of delight! You’ll be as strong as Popeye with this list of AIP-friendly spinach recipes.
If you’re looking for delicious and easy AIP casserole recipes to serve for dinner, then you’ve come to the right place!
You want to serve your family hearty and nutritious meals, while still sticking to the autoimmune protocol.
But most recipes on the internet (including most casserole recipes) are filled with ingredients like cheese, wheat, and nightshades that you have to avoid on AIP.
That’s why we’ve come up with this list of 24 AIP casserole recipes… to make your dinner time a breeze.
Just note that we’ve made suggested AIP substitutes for some of the recipes that use one or two ingredients that aren’t considered AIP-compliant.
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:
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!
I am so thrilled to show you all these amazing kebabs recipes that your AIP diet has been missing! Finally, you can take it easy and put together a BBQ menu without having to worry about your diet getting messed up.
Whether you love lamb, pork, shrimp or scallops, there is a perfect option for you on this list. My guess is you’re going to have a hard time deciding, so why not make a batch of each and throw a massive party! (That’s what I’m gonna do!)
Besides the more common meats, we’ve also included special recipes for offal, such as beef heart and chicken liver kebabs!
Now, don’t fret even if you’ve never cooked organ meats before. They are delicious when grilled, and they’re packed with vitamins and minerals, with numerous health benefits.
Start with the chicken livers and hearts that have a subtle flavor, and your picky eaters won’t even realize they’re eating organ meats.
How To Make Sure Your AIP Kebabs Turn Out Perfect: Use stainless steel skewers, or soak your wooden skewers in water for about half an hour before using them.- Cut the ingredients into uniform pieces so that they cook evenly.- For each skewer, choose ingredients that have similar cooking times (i.e. pieces of beef take much longer to cook than slices of zucchini).- Skip the store-bought barbecue sauces and spice mixes unless you are 100% sure they are AIP-friendly.
These AIP kebab recipes will bring you flavors from all over the world – Puerto Rico, Greece, and the Middle East, to name a few places. Of course, if you’d rather “stay home” there is definitely something for everyone on the list.
There are plenty of options so that you can make every family member their favorite – or maybe you’d like to mix and match, to let everyone try something new?
Did you know the yellowfin tuna is a super fast swimmer that can reach a speed of 47mph? I just learned that recently as I was searching for a tuna recipe I could make quickly.
There are tons of easy tuna recipes available out there, but it’s not always easy to find ones that are AIP-friendly. Tuna is a great ingredient for fast and easy meals, but many tuna recipes use nightshades or spices that you have to avoid on AIP.
That’s why I’ve put together this list of AIP tuna recipes so you don’t have to worry about which one to try.
The only problem you may run into is which one of these to try first!
1. Tuna, especially canned tuna, is inexpensive and therefore a great choice for budget-friendly cooking. It’s easily available almost anywhere in the world.
2. Tuna is an easy way to add more fish to your diet, even if you’re not a fan of fish recipes. The flavor is mild, and not overpowering – which can be the case with other kinds of fish.
3. Tuna is packed with nutrients, for example:
Tuna casserole, as well as various tuna salads, are staples in many homes but when you’re on AIP you need to make sure you’re only using safe ingredients. We’ve included several delicious tuna salads in this collection; also mayo-free and nut-free to help you stay fully AIP-compliant.
Tuna fish cakes are my favorite, as well as the casseroles as these can be made from canned tuna. But if you can get your hands on fresh, quality tuna there is nothing that beats a nice, juicy tuna steak!
You may have heard of a carnivore diet, and how it has affected people who’ve tried it. I’m going to leave it up to you whether you want to go meat-only for a while, but if you do, this recipe collection is going to make it super easy for you!
We all love a good steak, but that’s not the only thing you can eat on a carnivore diet. It can seem a bit daunting to put together a week’s worth of dinners (let alone, a month) that consist of only meats, but it’s easier than you think!
This recipe list includes all my favorite AIP carnivore diet recipes – and you won’t need a lot of experience to whip these up. The best part is, the ingredients are simple and easy to find – not to mention crazy delicious.
If a carnivore diet is not for you, that’s ok. You’ll still enjoy these meals and I bet your family is going to vote more than one of these as their favorite!
I know how tough being on the autoimmune protocol (AIP) can be, so hopefully this giant list of AIP Dessert Recipes will make life a bit easier for you!

It’s the Achilles’ heel in my diet. While I’ve never been a big fan of milk or white chocolate, dark chocolate has been my trusted companion since I can remember.
Luckily, dark chocolate is OK on a Paleo diet in moderation, but what about on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP)?
Breakfast is one of the toughest meals on any diet because you want something quick and easy but also delicious and filling to start your day. Luckily smoothies fit that bill perfectly.
