Most of our recipes are quick to cook, and many are autoimmune protocol (AIP) friendly since we have numerous food allergies in our family. The subject line of each recipe will have AIP appended in case it can be used when on an AIP diet. Not familiar with the autoimmune protocol? It is basically a diet that removes the most common problematic foods for people with autoimmune conditions, on top of Paleo. This means no eggs, nightshades, nuts as well as a few other things (for a more elaborate explanation, I recommend the Paleo Mom's website: Click here).
A common question is what we eat when there is no grains allowed. The picture to the right should give a clue... It shows the haul from one of our Saturday trips to the Poway Farmer's market. Lots and lots of vegetables, a bit of fruit, good quality protein such as pastured eggs and meat in addition to healthy fats such as olive oil, grass-fed butter and coconut oil.
The biggest change with Paleo, compared to the lifestyle of many people in the western world now, is the need for cooking your own food. So many Americans nowadays are relying on fast food and processed foods, and as a result of this, rates of obesity, diabetes and a host of other modern lifestyle diseases are skyrocketing. It's time to change the trend. Take your health in your own hand and start cooking your own food using quality ingredients - it will make a big difference in how you feel and perform!
