Chicken makes a great canvas for creative kitchen artistry. Serve it to a friend or partner and they’ll think you spent all day cooking this flavorful concoction.
Most stuffed chicken recipes call for cheese. I made this dish AIP compliant by subbing out the cheese and adding a rich pesto and cauliflower filling.

If you eat the same salad every day, it’s easy to become bored. Fortunately, this AIP waldorf salad offers an amazingly unconventional lunch or dinner option.
Perhaps the signature feature of a traditional waldorf salad is its mayonnaise base. To make this version AIP-friendly, I created a homemade dressing that pairs nicely with apples, celery, and grapes.
This versatile, tasty dip will add some flavor to your veggies without compromising the healing effects of your AIP diet.
Going AIP can be a huge change. From birthday parties to getting together to watch football on the weekend, food is often a central part of social gatherings. It’s easy to miss your favorite meals and snacks, but it’s exciting to find new favorites too.
This dip has all the craveability of your traditional store-bought (and likely inflammatory) dips. For that reason, make sure you keep yourself from going overboard if you decide to make a larger portion.
Shawarma is an easy and delicious way to up your salad protein game at lunch while sticking to your AIP diet (autoimmune protocol). With strong flavors that work with just about any meat, it’s hard to get tired of this savory dish. Ditch the pita for some greens to enjoy some AIP chicken shawarma that is sure to keep you going strong until dinner.
AIP herbal teas are great as more than just a warming drink to sip in winter – here are four other ways you can use them:
These herbal tea recipes also feature many common herbs, like:
From a Chamomile Mint Tea to help you unwind before bed, to a Cold Bustin’ Elderberry Tea and an Antioxidant Wellness Tea, we’ve found plenty of options you can try when you’re feeling stressed, tense or just under the weather.
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:
Test them out and see which one is your favorite. Personally, I find the onions with garlic are delicious every time!
The AIP diet (paleo autoimmune protocol) can often feel very restrictive, and it’s really tough to always be looking through recipes and figuring out if they’re AIP-compliant or not.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of AIP fish recipes, with options for every meal of the day. These recipes are also great if you’re staying nut-free, egg-free, or dairy-free.
You can try Salmon for Breakfast to start your morning, or if you’re looking for lunch ideas there’s the 5-Minute Sardines Salad and Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Ham Wraps.
And there are also some great dinner options to try – entertaining guests at home is the best way to stop your social life taking a nosedive while you’re in the elimination phase of AIP.
Baked Salmon with Cabbage, Apple, Fennel, Mahi with Crispy Sweet Potato Crust and Pan-Fried Apricot Tuna Salad Bites all look impressive but are very easy to prepare. That way, you can spend more time resting and healing your autoimmune condition instead of slaving in the kitchen!
Here are some of the fish used in our list of AIP fish recipes:
Good news for AIP dieters –
You can’t eat wheat. You can’t eat dairy.
But you can still eat pizza!
All you have to do is make some changes to your pizza base and then be careful to keep your toppings AIP-friendly.
Here are the most common types of AIP pizza bases:
And the most inventive AIP pizza recipe we’ve come across?
It’s a tie between the Raw Chocolate Brownie Fruit Pizza and the Pizza Meatballs.
But fries don’t have to be off the table…
There’s something a lot of us never think about before we start AIP (paleo autoimmune protocol).
You see, we’re all too caught up with working out which foods are good/bad and which meals we’re going to make…
…and we forget about the other important part of our diet.
None of us only drink water, right?
We all enjoy smoothies, juices, coffee, mocktails, cocktails…
And being on the autoimmune diet doesn’t mean giving these things up.
Blueberry Coconut Yogurt Smoothie, Cardio Green Juice and Pineapple Smoothie are all tasty AIP-compliant drinks filled with nutrients – try adding them to your breakfast or as a post-workout energy booster.
If you fancy something fizzy for later in the day, we’ve found recipes for a Berry Fizz Mocktail, Strawberry, Honey & Lime Spritzer, and Homemade Cranberry Juice.
Not forgetting our AIP coffee recipe, of course!
For those of us who stay dairy-free, coconut yogurt is amazing. It’s creamy, healthy, and perfect for breakfast no matter what diet you’re on!
And it’s really easy to make coconut yogurt using the Instant Pot pressure cooker. (Note – not all Instant Pots have this function, so check yours has a Yogurt button before continuing!)
