Cinnamon Apples (AIP, Paleo, Anti-Inflammatory)

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! This is for good reason. Not only is this recipe super easy and good for young and old, it's high in fibre, which supports digestion and blood sugar. Apple is a good source of pectin, a soluble fibre that absorbs water in the intestines, slowing down digestion. For those with an IBD, you may want to peel the skin off the apple as that can be irritating for some, especially if in a flare. Serves 4 2 apples, chopped 1 tbsp coconut oil ½ tsp

Wild Blueberry Sauerkraut Smoothie (AIP, Paleo, Anti-inflammatory)

Sauerkraut in a smoothie? WHAAAT!?! That's crazy talk. And a really great way to sneak in the in the benefits of fermented foods without the sour taste! The natural sweetness of fruit takes over and the kraut is hidden, making this a stellar option for picky eaters (young and old). This recipe is an adaptation from my friend Katanne Belisle (It Takes Gut). I added avocado, greens and collagen powder, and played with liquid content, while also removing the chia seeds. Ingredie

Lemony Lunch Time Chicken (AIP, Paleo, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

Serves 4 - 6 Preparation: 20 minutes Headaches: zero Lunch time can be headache time for so many parents. Add on the complexity and stress of a chronic illness, picky eaters or dietary restrictions ... EEK! It's enough to make your head explode. So many parents tell me "AIP and Paleo is too difficult to do with kids." It doesn't have to be. This is one of my kids' favourite lunch recipes, and it's a go-to for at least twice a week. For the most part, my kids' lunches are Pale

Turkey Breakfast Stew (AIP, Paleo)

Serves: 4 - 6 Preparation Time: 20 minutes + 30 minutes to simmer Breakfast is one of the more challenging meals when following AIP, Paleo or any diet for that matter. It helps to reframe the definition of "breakfast" and focus on the benefits of keeping blood sugar balanced, nutrition high and fuelling energy and concentration when breaking-fast. This stew is a family favourite not only for dinner, but breakfast. In fact, my autoimmune kid says she feels so much better throu

One Pan Mediterranean Fish (AIP, Paleo)

The nice thing about a one-pan dish is that no rules apply. You can substitute, add and create your own flavours and make it your own. This recipe is AIP friendly. With fish, I find that cooking time often depends on the thickness of the fish. You can buy wild frozen filets at many stores ... they are usually thin. In this case, the cooking time will be closer to 5-8 minutes. At a fish monger, your fish will most likely be thicker, so you will have to increase the cooking tim

Paleo and AIP Healthy Mayonnaise

Simple Steamed Salmon And Vegetables (AIP, Paleo)

This recipe is elimination diet friendly, meaning, if you're trying to reduce inflammation and avoiding food triggers, you CAN eat the meal! I love tenting fish while I make it ... the flavours are way more intense. And you can even buy parchment pockets now, so you only have to seal one side. It makes for great leftovers on a salad the next day. I like to add various fresh herbs and even fruit to my fish dishes ... rosemary, lemon, sage. Yum. Serves Two Ingredients: 2 medium
