SPICE (3) copy

After living in Asia for a year during college, food from India, Thailand, and China became part of my regular meal rotation. I made curries at home every week and filled my cabinets with the exotic spices, noodles and sauces I’d fallen in love with in my travels.

When I decided to go Paleo, I knew there would be little chance of continuing to eat the spicy, tangy dishes I loved. And on the AIP? Forget about it.

Slowly I learned to accept my fate and focus on the foods I could eat, but not without some serious grieving. I’m sure you can relate!

Jo Romero of the blog Comfort Bites knows exactly what this feels like. She too is an exotic food lover, and she too said goodbye to her beloved curries when she adopted the AIP.

But it didn’t take long for Jo to realize she couldn’t let them go forever. Rather than throw her hands in the air, she set to work creating nearly 100 AIP-friendly versions of the exotic dishes she loved.

And lucky for us, she put them in an amazing new ecookbook: SPICE! (Download your copy of SPICE here!)


Here are a few reasons we love SPICE:

1) It’s well researched. Jo spent years tweaking and re-tweaking her dishes until they passed her authenticity test. You won’t be disappointed with these recreations.

2) Jo’s “AIP Curry Formula” means you can DIY. Jo’s got your back! She sets you up with an ingenious, 4-part formula (with examples!) so you know just which aromatics, bases, spices and toppings to use to create your own AIP-friendly curries, no recipe required.

3) It’s super searchable. Whether you’re eating low-FODMAP, coconut-free or vegetarian — or you just want to search by cuisine — Jo has you covered. She’s listed her recipes by diet and cuisine, and she’s even included a handy glossary of her most-used spices, herbs and aromatics so you can learn how and when to use them in future meals.

4) It’s covers all the bases. From quick-and-easy finger foods to dinnertime centerpieces, Jo’s recipes run the gamut. She’s even included a handful of colorful mocktails.

5) It’s an amazing deal. More than 90 totally unique and quality recipes for under $10 is an incredible bang for your buck. Comparable print cookbooks cost $40 or more!

If you’re wondering how you’ll ever survive without takeout food on the AIP, fear not! This ecookbook is your answer.
