Woooooo hooooo! It's here! Finally! This is a project that has been in the works for close to 6 months and now the cat is out of the bag!
My friend Eileen over at Phoenix Helix has organized another amazing AIP (autoimmune protocol) community eCookbook — this time for the INSTANT POT! I am one of the authors and also an affiliate for it (meaning I earn a commission on each book that is purchased through my affiliate link).
Here are the two main reasons that I am so thrilled about this new release:
1. The AIP is tough!
I have gone through it a couple times during my healing journey and it can be really hard. Often we find ourselves having to eliminate our favorite foods and these are often the foods that we react most strongly to.
2. The Instant Pot is pretty much the bee's knees when it comes to kitchen appliances.
To celebrate the launch, I am offering a super special bonus to anyone who snags a copy of this great new eBook. Full details below!
But for now, let me give you the full scoop on the new eCookbook!
The Paleo AIP Instant Pot eCookbook
I am beyond thrilled to introduce you to the brand new Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook! It is a collaborative cookbook that features recipes from yours truly along with 36 other of the best AIP bloggers out there! This recipe for AIP “Chocolate” Cake is a special sneak peek into the incredible recipes that await you inside.
There are over 140 recipes inside, all of which use the pressure cooker function of the Instant Pot pressure cooker so you can have food on the table FAST without having to deviate from your healing autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet.
Every recipe in the eBook is free from:
- Processed food (anything artificial)
- Refined sugars
- Refined vegetable oils
- Grains (including corn)
- All legumes (including dried beans, soy, peanuts, green beans and green peas)
- Nightshades (including nightshade spices)
- Seeds (including coffee and cocoa)
- Alcohol (allowed during cooking, since the alcohol burns off)
- Emulsifiers and thickeners
- Non-nutritive sweeteners (including stevia)
- Fruit-based and seed-based spices
- Nut-based and seed-based oils
With a list like that you may be wondering what is left! Let me assure you that these recipes are simply divine. Even if you are not on the AIP, you will LOVE the delicious “fast food” recipes in this book. Each recipe is designed to be flavorful, nutritious, and easy to make with time-saving in mind as well.
Here's a peek at a few of the tasty recipes:
And, as you can see from this delicious “chocolate” cake recipe I'm sharing with you from the cookbook, the recipes are so much more than just main dishes! There are chapters covering all of the following:
- Sauces and Condiments
- and fun Extras!
Isn't it amazing how many things you can make (and make QUICKLY) using your Instant Pot?! I'm telling you, this appliance is truly a lifesaver in the kitchen, and a godsend for the AIP since it reduces both time and effort needed to prepare food. (You can read my formal review of the Instant Pot here.)
Dr. Sarah Ballantyne (The Paleo Mom and the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Approach) had this to say about the new eBook:
“The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook brings delicious, hassle-free, one-pot, healthy, 100% AIP recipes to your table, making healing from autoimmune disease as easy as pressing a button!”
