If you’re anything like me, one of the foods you miss most, when you have lots of food allergies, and/or you’re on the AIP, is Chinese takeout. I used to love eating from all those little containers, each one containing a different mix of flavors. This recipe, Instant Pot AIP Beef with Broccoli, is my way of getting back some of that flavor, without all the allergens that can come with the takeout version. And, if you really want to make it feel like takeout, just get some of those little containers to eat it out of.
When I created this recipe, I was also doing a reintroduction of quinoa. Since successfully reintroducing white rice, I figured quinoa was the next on the list. To go along with my Instant Pot AIP Beef with Broccoli, I cooked my quinoa in the same style as fried rice. Happily, my reintroduction worked out well. If there is one message I can get across to you, it is that the AIP elimination phase is not meant to last forever. You will be able to reintroduce foods, at the right time, and in the right way. But, don’t rush it. I waited until I was in remission, before reintroducing foods like oatmeal, nightshades, and quinoa. I’m not saying you have to wait that long; but, you should wait until you’re feeling good and symptom free for at least a couple of months. Trust me, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
I hope you all enjoy my Instant Pot AIP Beef with Broccoli recipe. Also, I wanted to tell y’all about a few changes, here on the blog. Since most of you want recipes, that’s what I’m going to give y’all. I’ll only be doing one post a week, from now until who knows when. Each post will be a recipe. Lately, I’ve been really connecting with many of you over social media. I feel I’m better able to help you, when you tell me what you need. When I write a blog post on a topic, I find that only a certain small number of you actually read it. Most of these blog post take hours to write. If I were to spend these hours, on social media, actually answering the questions you need me to answer, I think we’ll all benefit from that. So, please, ask away! Follow me on Facebook or Instagram; and, leave me comments, or DM me, with all of your questions. I look forward to creating a more personal relationship with you!
Also, my next Warrior Fit Challenge Group will begin on Monday, February 1, 2016! If you’ve been thinking about joining my group, now is the time to get started. We need to figure out which fitness program and meal plan is going to work best for you. My January group has been so much fun! We’ve struggled through ups and downs together. You don’t have to go it alone. We’ve all dealt with autoimmunity, illness, fatigue, weight gain, and chronic pain. But, we’re on our way to improving our health….and, getting strong, fit bodies in the meantime. Come join us! Email me now!
