Simple French Paleo Cookbook Review

Whether you’ve been following the AIP for awhile now, or you’re just thinking of starting your AIP journey, you are always in search of delicious recipes and quality information to help you through this sometimes confusing protocol.  Today, I’d like to introduce you to the latest addition to my AIP library, Simple French Paleo, by Sophie Van Tiggelen.

I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging with Sophie at last year’s Paleo Fx.  During our time together, Sophie talked of her dream of putting together a French themed, AIP cookbook.  To see her dream become a reality is a testament to this amazing lady’s dedication and belief in the autoimmune protocol. Like me, she has seen the improvements to her health adherence to the AIP has given her.  Her love of simple, real food flavors and her desire to help others experience healing, seeps through every page of Simple French Paleo. 

I’m not going to spend a lot of time discussing Sophie’s journey dealing with Hashimoto’s. Instead, I’m going to encourage you to go to her site, A Squirrel In The Kitchen.

Simple French Paleo is so much more than a mere cookbook.  Sophie has provided us with a practical guide to maneuvering through the AIP. I found her descriptions of the different phases of the AIP to be one of the easiest to understand and relate to I have ever read. You’ll also get lists of foods to eat and avoid and tips on living the whole AIP lifestyle.  Simple French Paleo includes an incredible amount of information on all aspects of the AIP life.

Now, let’s move on to the food! It was very hard for me to pick one favorite recipe to share with you. Believe me when I say they’re all fantastic.  But, of course, I had to go for her Grilled Shrimp with Aioli.  The fact is, her entire seafood section is my favorite.  Second favorite would have to be her dessert section, which is absolutely to die for…..or, to live for!  She has a recipe for a crepe cake that will make your head spin. And, IT’S ALL AIP!
