Today we’re going to take a deeper look at the newest AIP cookbook on the scene, The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook, by Kate Jay, FNTP!
Many of you know Kate as one of our past recipe contributors here on the Autoimmune Wellness blog (click here for an archive of all of her excellent recipes!). Kate is a skilled AIP Certified Coach, a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and founder of the AIP blog chronicling her family’s health journey at Healing Family Eats. I know many in the AIP community are grateful she has put her chef background to good work in developing tantalizing recipes for us all to enjoy!
In Kate’s new cookbook, The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook, she presents a collection of over 100 recipes that are compliant for every stage of reintroduction on the Autoimmune Protocol. This is a unique approach, as there are now dozens of cookbooks offering recipes for the elimination phase, but Kate’s offering here is one of the few books that actually includes recipes designed specifically for the task of reintroducing foods!
Three things I love about The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook:
- Detailed instructions on the reintroduction process. You may find yourself having worked through the elimination phase of the Autoimmune Protocol with success (yay!), but feeling unclear about how to go about reintroductions. Kate has included all of the information you need in order to organize and prepare for the reintroduction process.
- Single-ingredient focus. If you have tried reintroductions or are familiar with the process, you know that it is important to introduce just one ingredient at a time (which is so, so hard!). All of the recipes in Kate’s book are fully compliant with the elimination phase of AIP, with the addition of just one reintroduction-stage ingredient to be trialed, making it easy (and tasty!) to work through that long list.
- Flexibility. Even though the concept of this cookbook is to provide recipes that include ingredients to be reintroduced, Kate includes modifications to revert the recipes back to the elimination phase or make them low-FODMAP. She also indicates which recipes are coconut-free and freezer-friendly.
This book is perfect for anyone who is either looking at reintroducing foods after some time in the elimination phase, or those who have successfully reintroduced foods and looking for some flavorful recipes for their expanded way of eating.
