So, yes, I have officially added beans back into my diet. After successfully reintroducing kidney beans, I thought I’d give other beans a go. My first recipe is this one, Instant Pot Chicken with Black Beans and Gravy. I’m sure I’ll have have many more for you, as I expand my bean-eating experience.
Normally, I would would give you a post with all of the recipes from my batch cooking adventures of the week. But, after I created this one, I knew it deserved a post of it’s own. My AIP Paleo Strawberry Lemonade Chicken recipe is very similar to my Strawberry Balsamic Chicken recipe, with a few different twists. So, if you liked that recipe, you’re going to love this one.
This dish is the perfect end-of-summer meal. It’s refreshing and fruity! Enjoy!
I’ll also be releasing a second post this week, detailing my plans for August. Just to give you a heads up, I’m planning on taking some time off. For over two years, I’ve brought you lots of recipes and writings about living with autoimmune disease. I think it’s time for a bit of a vacation. I’ll share everything with you in my next post. As many of you know, relaxation is a huge part of recovery.
As always, I wish you good health……and, good food!

Aaahh, how I used to love Pina Coladas. To me, they were the ultimate summer drink. I remember drinking gallons of them when my hubby and I went to the Bahamas. Yeah, I know, I probably wouldn’t remember if I had actually drunk gallons of them! But, there was nothing quite like sitting on a beach, with a frosty, creamy Pina Colada in my hand.
Well, needless to say, things have changed since then. I can have some version of a virgin Pina Colada. Let’s face it though, it’s not quite the same thing. So, I thought I’d start playing around with the flavors of a Pina Colada, with other foods. This Instant Pot Pina Colada Chicken Recipe is the first of a few I created. I’ll be posting the rest of them over the summer months.
One of the perks of this Instant Pot Pina Colada Chicken recipe is how versatile it is. The first night I cooked it, I served it over crisp broccoli slaw. It was light and crunchy, the perfect summer dinner. A couple of days later, I served it for lunch, over a salad of greens, with a Plantain Chip Chicken thigh on top. If you want that recipe, it’s by Laura Vein, here. I can highly recommend it!
Discovering new ways to work with leftovers is the key to eating on the AIP. While I see some people eating the same things day after day, I just can’t eat that way. I need variety- color change, flavor change, and texture change. You should always experiment with different combinations, to keep from getting food-bored. I’ll warn you though, they’re not all winners. I’ve made some “meh” combinations, and some downright nasty ones. You can get some great ideas on my Instagram account here. Don’t worry, I don’t post the yucky ones!
As always, I wish you good health……..and, good food!
