When the weather starts to get warm, it’s time to break out the tropical flavors. There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than a cooling tropical treat. Enter our AIP tropical smoothie recipe. This tasty smoothie has no added sweeteners and strikes the perfect balance between tangy and creamy. Sipping this smoothie, it’s not hard to imagine yourself walking down the beach on a tropical island. A four ingredient smoothie that only takes 5 minutes to make from start to finish is a lot more attainable than a flight to the Carribean. So bring the island flavors into your own kitchen and sip, island-style, all summer long!
No matter where you may live in the United States, summer is raspberry season. The South gets first crack at it but by July, raspberries have made their way up North and it’s a berry free for all. In the winter, berries can be watery or dull but summer berries are tangy and vibrant. I never want to hide them, or even cook them. Most of the time I end up eating them straight from the container! But for days when you want something a little bit more, there’s this AIP raspberry ripple ice cream. The coconut and honey in this three ingredient ice cream doesn’t overshadow the raspberry flavor at all. In fact, the creamy ice cream only makes the tangy berries shine brighter.
Following AIP means a lot of ingredients are off limits (at least to start with) but just because you can’t eat wheat, or eggs, or tomatoes, doesn’t mean a whole cuisine is out, it just means you have to get a little creative. So is it possible to have noodles with no grains, no eggs, and no tomatoes? Yes it is, with our AIP bolognese and zoodles! Our tomato-free sauce is tangy with just a hint of sweetness, the bolognese is meaty and the zoodles are tender and satisfying. With a little imagination and some creative ingredient substitution, you really can have your noodles and eat them too!
Ground beef is an excellent ingredient to use on an AIP diet. It turns into soups, stews, burgers and meatloaves, and I’m pretty sure you could make dessert from it also…
Ok, maybe not dessert. But it’s great for everything else! And it is budget-friendly, especially if you purchase a large batch on sale and freeze some of it for later use.
I’ve organized the recipes in this collection by the cooking method. If you don’t feel like standing by the stove, choose a dish from the Crockpot category. Juicy meatballs, flavorful curry, or creamy ground beef stew? These recipes are easy to double for a larger crowd.
Who doesn’t love one-pan meals? There will be no crazy clean-up, afterwards, when you’re cooking stir-fry or some Korean beef.
Ground beef is perfect for baked dishes, which is why I’ve dedicated a whole section to casseroles, meatloaf, lasagna and other recipes your oven will love.
