What vegetables can you eat on AIP diet?

Lots of vegetables but none that are nightshades like tomato, eggplant or white potatoes. More on the AIP guidelines here.

What can I substitute for nightshades?

In this recipe, I substitute tomatoes with peaches. Although you can easily add a tomato if you have reintroduced them.

    Just wondering why you use prosciutto – isn’t this cured meat and therefore cancerous?
