With just five ingredients (plus sea salt to taste), these Bacon Avocado Wraps are my autoimmune protocol-friendly answer to B. L. T. sandwiches and one of my all-time favorite breakfasts or lunches. Fast, easy, and absolutely delicious–what's not to like? Seriously, quick meals on the AIP usually involve reaching for some leftovers, throwing together a salad with whatever's in the fridge, or making a smoothie with some frozen fruit. It's easy to fall into a routine and stick to it even after you've gotten bored with it... or to give into … [Read more...] about Bacon Avocado Wraps

If you start Googling what to do with those plantains you found at the store this week, you'll find a lot of variations on smashed or mashed plantains. Mofongo, tostones, kufu–they're all incredibly delicious takes on one of my favorite starchy vegetables. What varies are the seasonings and exact presentation. Some use pork skins for crunch and saltiness, others use pancetta. If you can't get your hands on pancetta where you live, bacon works just as well and is often cheaper, so I've opted for that here. If you're not on the autoimmune … [Read more...] about Mashed Plantains with Bacon (Mofongo)
Chocolate coconut milk.How many of you remember being heartbroken when you got to the end of the lunch line in elementary school and all that was left was strawberry milk? Even if you brought your own lunch, odds are good you either picked up some chocolate milk on the side (possibly by trading with a friend) or enviously eyed the beverages of your peers while you struggled to get your Capri Sun open. All of my most vivid elementary-school memories are from the cafeteria, but even after I outgrew the public consumption of chocolate milk … [Read more...] about Chocolate Coconut Milk (Dairy-Free and AIP)
Gravlax, lox, smoked salmon... cured salmon comes in several varieties and flavors from all over the world, but is usually served with some kind of bread (like toast, crackers, or bagels), capers, and cheese. My husband likes it inside an omelet with some chives or on a salad with red onions, while I've been known to snack on it all by itself when I need protein in a pinch. You might be surprised at how much money you can save by making your own cured salmon rather than buying it at the store! Even at my local Costco, smoked salmon is upwards … [Read more...] about Cured Salmon (It’s Easier Than You Think!)
Thai Iced Tea is my all-time favorite summer beverage. Ten years ago, when I was still a kid (or close enough to it), it would've been lemonade. Maybe the fact that iced tea has supplanted it is a sign I've finally crossed into adulthood. This is going to sound like blasphemy to those of you that live in the south, but the southern sweet tea my mom used to make has nothing on a nice, tall glass of Thai Iced Tea. Traditionally made with sweetened condensed milk and a handful of spices, it's the perfect blend of sweet, creamy, and spicy. This … [Read more...] about Thai Iced Tea
It's the perfect time of year to be breaking out all those classic childhood desserts. Summer just screams ice cream sandwiches, Popsicles, milkshakes, birthday cake a la mode, and banana splits–and you don't have to be a kid to want to hearken to that call. Nowadays, it's pretty easy to find an autoimmune protocol-friendly version of your favorite treat. Even if they don't quite hit the spot, they're usually better than nothing... or falling off the wagon completely. But every now and then you find one that's more magical than you could have … [Read more...] about Banana Split Pudding
