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.

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!

Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp with Yam Noodles Recipe

I’ve so been trying to keep up lately! But, with the blog, training, taking classes, creating new websites, working on very big upcoming projects, and just life in general, several things have fallen by the wayside. However, with me adopting a ketogenic diet, I have had to spend a little more time creating recipes that fit into my new way of eating.  This Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp with Yam Noodles recipe is one of them.

When I first created Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp, I thought it was going to be really low in carbs. Then, when I took each ingredient, and broke them up by macros, I discovered it wasn’t as low carb as I thought it would be. At 19 grams of net carbs per serving, I had already used up the bulk of my 25 grams of allowed net carbs. Now, I could have split the dish into more servings; but, seriously, that would not have been enough to fill me up.  So, I am not calling this recipe one of my keto or low carb recipes. Although, it is one of my yummiest!

I hope you enjoy my Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp with Yam Noodles.  If you can’t find No Oodles brand, you could always use another brand of shirataki noodles, or even zoodles (zucchini noodles).  I like that the No Oodles brand lists only yam flour and lime juice as ingredients.  Plus, there is only 1 gram of carbs per serving!

Next week, I’m going to try to get two posts out for you.  I have several in the works on topics including the ketogenic (very low carb, moderate protein, high fat) diet, the current attacks on the AIP, and my review of Mark Sisson‘s new book, Primal Endurance.  Hopefully, I will be rolling those out in the next few weeks, along with more recipes, of course.

As always, I wish you good health………and, good food!

Gluten Free Bok Choy Shrimp with Noodles- AIP Paleo Modifications

Gluten Free Bok Choy Shrimp with Noodles by Tara Perillo gluten free Gluten Free Bok Choy Shrimp with Noodles- AIP Paleo Modifications IMG 6871

Many of you already know I have reintroduced white rice back into my diet.  Basically, white rice is, what I would consider a gray area, in the paleo world.  Many in the paleo community allow white rice, on occasion, usually using the hashtag “teamwhiterice”.  It’s also found it’s way into many cookbooks with paleo in the title.  So, I’ve put it into the gray area category.  This Gluten Free Bok Choy Shrimp with Noodles recipe is the result of my wanting to add white rice noodles into my meal plan.

Now, if you’re on the AIP, I’ve added modifications for you.  You’ll be switching out the white rice noodles with zoodles, cassava, or yam noodles.  Also, you’ll be omitting the curry powder altogether.  If you’d like to add a little more spiciness to the dish, you can add a bit of finely shredded pure horseradish, toward the end of cooking.

I hope you enjoy my Gluten Free Bok Choy Shrimp with Noodles recipe.  I’ll definitely be adding more white rice noodles to some of my recipes.  I believe that after you’ve successfully healed your autoimmune symptoms with the AIP, you should try to reintroduce as many healthy foods back into your diet as possible.  I’m not saying that you should go back to the processed, tainted foods you ate before, though.  But, I am saying that, if a food can offer a health benefit to you, consider reintroducing it.  I am loving the additions I’ve made to my diet.  It can also be beneficial to your mental state to add back certain foods. I know the fact that I can now enjoy actual noodles with my meals, makes me much happier.  Once you’ve done your time on the AIP, don’t be afraid to try adding back foods you used to enjoy.  But, be sure to do it wisely.  Don’t try to add back gluten-filled noodles, if you have a gluten intolerance.  Instead, try white rice noodles.  And, don’t neglect to read your food labels.  Many of the processed gluten free foods contain tons of bad-for-you additives and fillers.  Find the products that have the least amount of ingredients, and no fillers, emulsifiers, or additives, like guar gum and carrageenan.  Keep your ingredients as pure as possible!

As always, I wish you good health…….and, good food!
