I have HUGE news today–I’m coming out with a brand-new AIP cookbook!

It’s called The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen and it releases March 2019 (details below on how you can order a signed, pre-release copy!).

Angie and I both know from personal experience that being successful on AIP is much more than simply eliminating foods. Healing is both quickened and deepened when you ensure that in addition to avoiding your food triggers, your make an effort to maximize nutrient density in the diet.

But what exactly is nutrient density? Simply put, it is the amount of micronutrients a food contains relative to the energy it provides. Not only does my new book teach you about getting good nutrition in an approachable way, but I have developed all of the recipes so you’ll be maximizing nutrient density with every bite.

Inside The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen, you’ll find:

  • 125 Autoimmune Protocol compliant recipes (free from gluten, grains, dairy, eggs, nuts, seeds, and nightshades)
  • Recipes that satisfy low-FODMAP, low-carb, or coconut-free diets
  • Recipes that take 45 minutes (or less) to prepare, can be made in one pot, or can be made in an Instant Pot
  • 5 meal plan and shopping list combinations, including budget and two-person options


In order to create a book I believe in and maintain complete control over the content, I am self-publishing The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen. By pre-ordering your copy directly from me, you get some awesome perks!

Your pre-order bonuses include:

  • A signed copy of the first hardcover printing
  • Early delivery of the book (up to a month before traditional release)
  • Membership to a private insider FB group (Dec-Feb)
  • Access to pre-release recipes from the book

    Hi Mickey
    I hope all is well. Love your work. Your dedication to all things AIP is amazing. A quick note – the link on the above page to ‘Click here to learn more and pre-order!’ – i.e. to preorder your new book – doesn’t work. Either the page is down, or the link is wrong maybe?
    Wanted to let you know.
    Also, is this option to preorder and have it sent out to us available to those of us outside of the USA? I’m in Australia.
    Enjoy your evening!
    Kind regards

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Luana!
      I’m sorry the link was down, I checked it out just now and it seems to be directing to the site just fine! Always something with the internet!

      I was able to add an international pre-order option last week. I should also mention the book will have international distribution to stores, likely in a metric format later in 2019 or early 2020. So, if you don’t mind paying the shipping and want a copy sooner than later, you can pre-order, but if you’d like to wait for a cheaper version it will be coming at some point. Thanks for your support!

  • Kelly says

    Love your website. I hope and pray that the AIP plan will start my healing process again. When is the Batch Cooking series coming back? It looks like it would be extremely helpful for many reasons!
    It states January 17th on your website, but still unavailable. I couldn’t find any other form of contact. Thank you! KJ

    Hi Mickey, Does your book contain bread recipes? I am looking for rice flour/tapioca flour bread recipes. Thanks!Jeannie

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Jeannie, no, it does not have any breads, which are next to impossible to make palatable on AIP.

  • Christie A Sanner says

    I am writing to find out what podcast episode I can listen to that will help me in staying on track with my autoimmune paleo protocol and not be deterred from family members who do not want to join with me or try to sabatoge my efforts of healthy eating. I feel as if it is a struggle as the only member in my family trying to stay on track, but not being supported. I am thankful for your support, wisdom, encouragement, and wealth of information that you share with your followers, as it helps me to be supported. Can you suggest any additional podcasts, books, etc. so that I can continue to feel supported?

  • Vanessa says

    I recently picked up your Nutrient Dense Kitchen and I looking forward to trying out the recipes. I was curious if you had the nutritional information for your recipes posted somewhere since it is not included with the recipe?

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Vanessa! No, I don’t provide nutritional information, but you can easily add any recipe to an online calculator to see how it squares up.

  • Kili says

    Hey, I bought your book nutrient dense Foods. I have diagnosed RA and tried to deal with it through the Medical Medium Books. Because some of his Foods caused too much Inflammation I decided to now do paleo. I have ADD and am still studying, so I was wondering if this was a good choice to make this simple and not overwhelming. I am also working a lot with meditaton etc. and decided not to go the Mainstream medical route.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Kili! I am sorry to hear about your RA diagnosis. I hope the information proves helpful to you!

  • Aurora says

    Will your books ever be available on kindle or as an ebook? I very much would like to purchase them but prefer to use the e-platform as I can carry more books without so much weight!

  • Parinitha Bhargav says

    A great definition of nutrient density. Thank you for sharing the helpful post.

  • Chris Carberry says

    Hi Mickey,

    Thank you so much for putting this cookbook together. I’ve made several recipes and they were all tasty. One thing though: The index leaves a lot to be desired. I usually go shopping and buy the veggies that are on sale or that look good. But your index on veggies simply lists the pages numbers, not the actual dishes where the veggies occur. For example, beets only has a string of page numbers.

    Now I am wondering: Is there any way for me to get a better index? I think it’s pretty easy for book software to create indexes and I hope you have something like that. I would love an index that lists the veggies with dish names and page numbers to make finding dishes easier.

    Thank you!

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Chris! Thanks for the kind words on the cookbook. No, I do not have an alternate index. The style in the book is typical of cookbooks, and it was indexed by a professional indexer. Each entry contains page numbers for recipes that use that ingredient. For example, the beet listing you mention leads to the recipes using beets – like the beet kvass, nomato sauce, detox salad, etc. with the idea that you can flip through to find a recipe with those ingredients you like. Hope it helps!

      • Christiane Carberry says

        Hi Mickey,
        Thank you so much for getting back to me!

        Ever since it was released, I’ve been cooking with Martha Rose Shulman’s Mediterranean Harvest cookbook. It has an awesome index, listing the vegetables and then all the dish names with their page numbers under each vegetable. So you don’t have to look up 10 or 15 recipes to find the one you’re looking for.

        It would definitely improve my user experience and I would suggest to emulate it if you ever decide to write another cookbook.
