The Healing Kitchen Cookbook Review (& Recipe)

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that when you purchase an item your price stays the same, but I make a small commission to help run my blog. See more information here.*

The Healing Kitchen Cookbook Review
Short version: This cookbook is perfect for newbie or veteran to AIP. Go buy it!!

Long version: If the amazing photo of the spread on the front cover of the cookbook isn't enough to make you want to pick it up and check it out, then let me tell you more! At first glance, you've got eye-tantalizing and drool-worthy photos, easy to follow graphics, and a great guide at the front of the book to get you started.

When you start looking closer, you've got tons of well-developed meal plans utilizing the recipes in the cookbook complete with links to videos! The cookbook has tons of information and is definitely designed for the newbie in mind—whether you're new to the Autoimmune Protocol, ancestral health, paleo, cooking, etc, it doesn't matter because you're covered. There's even a basics section that provides you with simple recipes to replace some fridge and pantry essentials like worcestershire sauce, salad dressings, and herb blends. Missing ingredients here and there? There's an awesome substitution chart to help you out! They've also included budget advice and how to navigate the grocery and finding new ingredient items that you might not be familiar with.

But if you're not a newbie and you've been doing paleo or AIP for a while now, you're still really going to enjoy the cookbook. The recipes range from comfort classics to ethnic cuisines and some newer recipes to tempt the AIP palate. If you've been stuck in a cooking rut lately, this is the book to grab to help you freshen up the menu. Below you'll find a list of the recipes I sampled (click the link to see the Instagram photos). Not only did I really like the flavors and textures, but several recipes received approval from non-paleo friends, too! I even included a sample recipe from the book. The Spicy African Kale is different and super tasty.

Nightshade-free Ratatouille (AIP)

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that when you purchase an item your price stays the same, but I make a small commission to help run my blog. See more information here.*

Fun fact: I always loved seeing the Disney version of the ratatouille dish. Not just because the mouse is cute (he is!), but because it always looked so pretty and colorful. Truthfully, I've never had an authentic ratatouille. I'm extremely disappointed, but as I don't see myself reintroducing nightshades any time soon, I will have to settle for how I think it would taste. Luckily, there aren't too many crazy different ingredients, so I imagine it tastes much like a fancier version of the canned zucchini in tomatoes with Italian seasoning. I don't think we can argue with the fact that it looks much fancier too!

This is a nice and savory dish perfect for colder weather. The time in the oven turns the beet-based marinara into a bold, brilliant red that adds a lovely pop of color as a side dish to grace your holiday tables too.

I also shared this with some non-AIP and non-paleo friends, and most of them approved. 

Don't let the focus on the beets deter you. The acid of the lemon and the punch from the herbs helps to counterbalance the usual strong earthiness that the beets tend to have.

Nightshade-free Ratatouille
½ tbsp EVOO
½ onion, chopped
4 oz mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 oz canned beets
1 tbsp EVOO
3 tsp lemon juice, or to taste
½ tsp sea salt, or to taste
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried parsley
¼ tsp dried rosemary
¼ tsp dried basil
1 large yellow squash, sliced into rounds
1 large zucchini squash, sliced into rounds
2 large beets, sliced into rounds
Fresh basil, EVOO, & sea salt, for garnish

Preheat oven to 375°F. 

In a deep skillet or small saucepan, heat the oil over medium to medium low heat. Saute the onions and mushrooms until they start to turn translucent and soften. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. 

Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor, and add canned beets, remaining olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and dried herbs. Blend thoroughly. 

Taste the marinara and adjust accordingly. Sometimes more lemon is needed to balance the sweetness of the beets and sometimes more salt is need. If more herbs are needed, add oregano and basil.

Pour the sauce into the bottom of a glass dish (either one 9x13 or two 8 in rounds) to fill about half an inch high. Arrange the yellow squash, zucchini and fresh beets in an alternating pattern to fill the pan. You can get as creative as you like (see example below).

Drizzle the tops with a little bit of olive oil and top with a few dashes of sea salt and some chopped fresh basil. Cook on the middle rack in the oven for 35-35 min or until top is lightly brown and slices are fork-tender.

Sweet 'n Salty Acorn Squash (AIP)

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that when you purchase an item your price stays the same, but I make a small commission to help run my blog. See more information here.*

When the Paleo Mom posted her recent article about the benefits of blackstrap molasses in Blackstrap Molasses: The Sugar You Can Love!, I realized that I don't cook with it enough. I enjoy the taste of it in the right foods. I often add molasses to my Sweet Potato Cookies recipe and skip the raisins for more of a snickerdoodle-type cookie. Reading about all the nutritious benefits of it compared to other sweeteners was pretty exciting. Most of the other sweeteners aren't really applauded very often, so it's nice to see one that gets a little praise and makes us feel a little less guilty for indulging.

As I've said before, I'm not very big on sweets. Occasionally, I do go on short sprees where I crave it, or I desire the comfort food that contains it, but for the most part, my blog isn't very heavily laden with desserts. Molasses is a different kind of sweet, almost tangy, and so I think it has a place.

This recipe was also inspired from a few pictures on A Squirrel in the Kitchen's Instagram: @Squirrel_Kitchen. When I saw her slicing and roasting the squash with the seeds intact, I was intrigued.

Combine some squash and molasses, and we now have an easy but delicious side dish, a lovely breakfast item, or a simple dessert.

Sweet 'n Salty Winter Squash
1 winter squash (acorn, pumpkin, delicata or butternut)
2-3 tbsp coconut oil or preferred fat (should be liquid)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground ginger (reduce the ginger by half if you like less of a "kick")
¼ tsp ground mace
¼ tsp ground cloves

Place the oven rack approximately 6 inches from the broiler. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Holding the stem, slice the squash into ¼-⅓ inch rounds. If you are Elimination Phase AIP, then you will want to remove all the seeds and compost or discard. If you have reintroduced seeds, leave the seeds intact. Arrange the slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Brush the slices generously with coconut oil (or desired fat).

Combine the spices (excluding the sea salt) and sprinkle evenly over the squash. Sprinkle a couple dashes of sea salt per slice to taste (think "Salted Caramel"; you just want a hint of the salt).

Roast the squash approximately 20-25 minutes until lightly browned, the squash is soft, and the skin is crisp. (The seeds should also be well toasted if you kept them intact.)

Remove pan from oven and turn on broiler. Drizzle the squash with molasses. Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes (do not move the rack). Keep a close eye to prevent burning. Remove when crispy and molasses is sticky and bubbling.

Allow to cool a minute or so before serving as the molasses is VERY hot.

Bottoms Up! Bone Broth Recipe Round Up

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that when you purchase an item your price stays the same, but I make a small commission to help run my blog. See more information here.*

Bottoms Up! Bone Broth Recipe Round Up
I am frequently asked if I have a bone broth recipe on my blog. It's not a crazy question. Bone broth is probably one of the most basic foundations of eating on the Autoimmune Protocol and for very good reason. There are tons of benefits to daily bone broth consumption and gelatin and collagen supplementation. But there are also lots and lots of great articles and recipes within the AIP community and beyond. So instead of beating a dead horse to the ground, I'm supplying you with a pretty thorough round up of recipes and sources of more information.

For me personally, I don't really follow a strict recipe. Some people prefer making their broths with roasted bones, and some prefer making it with raw bones. Some people prefer using veggies, and others say nay. Some argue for the use of an acid like vinegar in the broth, while some say it doesn't matter. Honestly, I don't think there is a right or wrong way to make broth. You have the basic formulation: bones and water. Then tweak everything from there and figure out what works for you! That's why there are SO MANY different ways to make it.

I can tell you all about my personal preferences. But that's all they are. I like my broths with bones unroasted with a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar for chicken or poultry OR red wine vinegar for beef. I also prefer to skip the veggies AND the salt to make a "stock". The stock has barely any flavor which means I can use it in recipes savory AND sweet for the most flexibility.

I will also say that sometimes it's just hard to get your broth in. That's why I'm also personally a big fan of gelatin and collagen supplementation whether I'm using bone broth daily or not. They are great with helping with controlling inflammation. I prefer to use the following brand.

You can read why I prefer Vital Proteins over other brands in my Pumpkin Pie Smoothie post.

And now for the list of recipes and articles, in no particular order...

Getting Up in the Morning is Success

Getting Up in the Morning is Success
Warning: Shit's about to get real up on this blog, so if you're not into hearing about real life, then it's time to move on before things get serious. I figure it's my blog, so I can say that and no hard feelings. I think what I think, and I write what I write, and you gotta take the good with the bad. And I'm about to strip my soul bare, and get real ugly.

I got stood up tonight. It's the first time I've ever been stood up at 27 so I figure I could call that pretty lucky, but it's the final straw in a long series of terrible dates, and the coup de grĂ¢ce in the spiral whirlwind that's been my life for the last year. If you have seen the tv series Selfie, I almost feel like I'm Eliza Dooley in the tenth episode where she binge drinks in a crazy, blurred, partying, karaoke montage--spiraling slowly and blindly out of control (alcoholism not included here personally).

Don't get me wrong. I love my life more than I ever have before, but it's also never been so hard. I am lost, overwhelmed, and frozen. I haven't blogged consistently in months and months. I have written tons of recipes and several drafts of blog posts. I've got several cookbooks stacked up for reviewing (they're all excellent, by the way, because I know the bloggers are food geniuses). I have plans for the blog, and yet I see the list a mile long, and I quit. I feel pulled a million different directions with no clear focus of which path I want to follow. Work, blog, food prep, social life, love life, on and on and on. I've gone through a couple hard breakups that hurt to let go of, and bitter friendships that burned even as much as I knew I needed to kick the negativity and toxicity out of my life. I'm on a super tight budget, living paycheck to paycheck, trying to pay all my bills and hope I run out of month before I run out of money, and doing it all by myself with barely any support to fall back on. My family is stretched out across the states, and I'm still completely alone in a city that doesn't feel like home. I have some great friends, but I've never felt more lonely in my life. I'm a hairstylist. I touch people hundreds of times a day, every day, and yet I can't tell you the last time someone touched me for more than 30 seconds. Days? Weeks? Months?

I haven't been able to stick to AIP for more than a couple days at a time. Dairy here, alcohol there, soy here, etc, etc, etc. Minor triggers in small amounts, and yet it all adds up. I haven't posted about it much, or talked about it much, because as my blog gets viewed/shared more and more, I feel pressured to maintain an image more than ever. But that's not fair--to me or to you. To anyone. I'm not a icon; I don't want to be put on a pedestal. I'm real and down to earth, and I'm not different than anyone of you. I live in a small apartment with two cats. I have multiple autoimmune diseases. I go to work 5 days a week. I like the beach, and I like going out with friends. I'm not special. I just chose to write about it.

AIP is more than just food, it's more than just a diet. You've seen it a hundred times, and here it is again, because it's so true. I don't have all the answers. I'm still working on the patch of psoriasis at the base of my scalp. I'm still working on the joint pain that triggers with minor inflammation. I'm still working on the anxiety that continues to interfere with my relationships. And some days, I have no fricking clue what I'm even doing or if plugging away constantly is making any more progress than just a hamster on a wheel.

And guess what? I don't think anybody else really truly knows either. We're all trying to figure out the same things. We're just all going about it in different ways. And truly? Plugging away at it constantly without giving up is progress. Because I went after what I wanted.

And I didn't quit.

Zesty Roasted Asparagus (AIP)

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that when you purchase an item your price stays the same, but I make a small commission to help run my blog. See more information here.*

I'm back with a recipe for you; it's a delicious side that is pretty easy to make and has got a whole lot of zip! You've probably noticed my extended absence. I've been doing a lot of soul-searching and trying to figure out what I wanted from my blog and where I wanted to go with it. The problem is that the more you throw yourself into something, the deeper you get entrenched and sometimes you get derailed from what you originally started without even realizing it. So I took some space to figure out what my goals really were.

And luckily a lot of my readers came to my rescue. I really was strongly considering moving on and letting the blog go. I felt overwhelmed and that I couldn't bring it together enough to be what it needed to be. And I was comparing myself to a lot of other bloggers. Except that I forgot two very important things:

  1. I have a large group of readers and supporters that follow me because they like MY recipes and like MY story and they like what I have to share. And that's exactly what each and every one of them that emailed or messaged me was sharing and reminding me. And it touched me to realized that I really had made a difference for them, because...
  2. I started my blog to help people. I didn't do this to make money or become famous. I started my blog so I could share recipes and information that would help people the way eating healthier and cleaner has helped me and continues to help me every day.
And that I can't give up. So, yes, my posting might be spotty here and there. After all, I'm working a full time job, cooking AIP recipes for a single lady all by my selfie on the daily, and living with multiple autoimmune diseases. But the best part is that I have seen such significant strides in my conditions and in my physical and mental health. So even though there are occasional bad days and yes, even sometimes the rare bad week, I'm still so far beyond where I imagined I could ever be when I started AIP almost two years ago. The girl that stared in the mirror horrified at a clump of hair and bald spot? I have a small itchy patch at the base of my scalp that mostly only drives me crazy when I'm stressed. And now I've learned when people start stressing me out that I just need to work on #AIPbalance. And I just use the words of one of my clients as I'm walking away: "You're making my head itch!"

Zesty Roasted Asparagus
1 lb asparagus
2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
1½ tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried summer savory
½ scant tsp garlic powder
½-1 tsp sea salt, more or less to taste

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut the white ends off the asparagus and place the spears on a baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over the asparagus. Then sprinkle the herbs and salt over the asparagus. Toss to coat as evenly as possible.

For crispy spears: Place the cookie sheet in the lower bottom of the oven. Turn or toss the spears every 10-15 minutes depending on how thick the spears are. Thicker spears should go 15 minutes at a time. The spears will shrink and get crispy about 35-45 minutes in. If making crispy spears, I recommend doubling the recipe due to shrinkage.

For tender spears: Place the cookie sheet in the middle of the oven. Turn every 10 minutes. Spears should be roasted and lightly browned on the edges in 25-30 minutes.

Remove from oven and serve.

Now you see why I’m so excited about this bundle!

Wait! How can you offer so many resources at such a steep discount?
E-book bundles typically include a variety of e-books and other digital resources sold for a price far lower than what you would pay for each e-book individually. How does this work? There’s two major incentives for authors to donate their e-books to bundles: expanding their audience and affiliate commissions. Chances are good that you won’t be familiar with every e-book included in a bundle sale. This is what’s in it for the authors: the large number of people who look at their e-books (but normally wouldn’t have) and become new fans. When bundles have a strong theme like this one, this advantage goes both ways:  you are the perfect target audience for the e-book contributors and they are great resources for you! Contributing authors also become affiliates for the bundle so there’s still a mechanism for financial compensation for the hard work they put in to creating a great resource.

Bundles also typically contain discount codes. Again, this is what’s in it for the companies: you might try out a new product and become a new regular shopper. Because bundles are such great deals, the excitement is very high, sales tend to be fantastic, and this amounts to substantial exposure to new markets. And hopefully, the huge range of discounts included in this bundle will alert you to some great AIP products you didn’t know about yet!

This model only works when bundles are very thoughtfully organized, provide unique and high quality content, and are sold for a very limited time. The excitement over a legitimately amazing deal means lots of sales and lots exposure for the contributors. When bundle sales last too long or when there’s too many very similar bundle sales to choose from or when the advertising for a bundle includes overinflated values, then the excitement fades and so do the benefits to the contributors. The organizers of the Autoimmune Wellness Bundle are fully honoring the contributions from so many authors and vendors by doing this right! That’s why this bundle was so carefully crafted and is only available until May 25th

Bundle Details
When I’m trying to decide on whether to buy a bundle, I look at which books I would enjoy, total up the value, and then see if that’s more than the cost of the bundle (then I treat everything else as a bonus). I mean, it’s great that this bundle includes 45 e-books and is being sold at a 92% savings, but that doesn’t really mean anything if there’s only two books in the whole bundle that I’m interested in!

Exclusive Discounts and Coupon Codes
To give you even more value and support for your health journey, The Autoimmune Wellness Bundle also includes discount codes for 26 discount codes for AIP-friendly vendors and products!  

Because the bundle organizers don’t want to assume that you’ll use every coupon code, the huge amount of money you could save by taking advantage of these discounts hasn’t even been calculated into the value of the bundle!  That’s right!  The bundle is worth over $500 NOT including the coupons and discount codes!

This is another way that I determine if a bundle is a good deal for me.  I see whether any of the included discount codes and coupons are for products I normally buy or have been meaning to buy.  If a good coupon (or two or three) will save me the cost of the bundle just by purchasing items I would have anyway, then I get to look at all the included e-books and other discount codes as a bonus!

It’s fantastic to see so many discounts and coupons for AIP-friendly products, services and programs!
