When I’m explaining to people how to start the AIP elimination phase, I always get asked the same question, “Do I really have to give up ___________ (fill that in with whatever food the person does not want to give up)? And, I always answer the same way, “If you want to experience the most amount of healing you do”. Continue reading “Why The Elimination Phase of The AIP Is So Important”
Recently, when I went to make a new batch of bone broth, I realized I may have a problem. I think I’m addicted to chicken legs! After pulling four full bags of just chicken leg bones from my freezer, I couldn’t hide it any longer. I am hooked on drumsticks! And now, I’m going to get you hooked on drumsticks, with my AIP Paleo Sticky Chicken Legs recipe.
Chicken legs are an inexpensive way to get protein into your meal. I usually buy mine at Trader Joe’s or on my monthly trip to Costco. Also, I always buy organic, which is a little more expensive than standard non-organic. But, they are so much tastier and better for you. It’s totally worth the small price increase.
Luckily for me, my last bone broth destroyed all of my chicken leg bones. Now, I can start to rebuild my stash for the next couple of batches. Even though I used only chicken leg bones, my bone broth still came out perfectly gelled. I also usually add chicken feet to the Instant Pot; but, ran out of room in my last batch. Too many chicken legs, you know.
Alright, that’s enough about chicken legs. Other than them, I also love meatballs! I tend to make a batch every week. They’re perfect for quick meals. The reason I’m talking about meatballs is because my recipe for Olive-Bacon Meatballs is exclusively in this week’s newsletter, Paleo Cajun Lady News. I will not be releasing that recipe anywhere else. So, be sure to sign up for my newsletter. I will be featuring lots of newsletter only recipes, discounts, giveaways, and news. And, don’t worry, I don’t bombard you with a bunch of emails everyday. I send one email every week typically. Sometimes, if I get wind of something great, I’ll send you two in a week. That’s it though! Believe me, I can’t handle any more than that. So go sign up!
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!
