Steaming, spicy sweet potato is a wonderful addition to chili. It’s hearty and robust and has a similar texture to the beans a traditional recipe might call for. This one is autoimmune protocol-compliant, so you won’t find any dairy or nightshades, either! This can be made with chicken or ground beef, but I think chicken is a better complement to the spice blend.
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
