Do you miss fries? I’ll answer that: Who doesn’t? I know it’s hard to substitute that crisp, starchy texture, but a lot of veggies can come close in savory, salty flavor. Celeriac (a.k.a. celery root) is one of my favorite potato substitutes. If you can’t find it at your usual grocery store, you may have to look at specialty stores like Whole Foods or a local farmer’s market–and you’re more likely to find it there when it’s in season during fall/winter.
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!
