My dear readers,
If you had a chance to read a couple of my recent posts you should be aware of the fact that I kept on mentioning Instant Pot… Today I want to lift the veil of secrecy by sharing with you very exciting news: the Paleo AIP Instant Pot cookbook is now available!
Writing a book of such a scale could take years. However, due to the collaborative efforts of a team of the AIP bloggers and the entire dedication of Eileen Laird, this cookbook is made available to you in a fraction of the time. Everyone involved in this project did an amazing job! My special thanks go to Eileen Laird, who did a tremendous amount of work, coordinating the whole project from start to finish. I also would like to thank Laura Vein for the beautiful interior design and copy editing and Kate Jay for the gorgeous cover photo! My humble contribution to the e-book consists of two recipes, one of which is exclusive to the book. It may seem as a minor contribution, but developing these recipes took quite a bit of time, as I kept on adjusting ingredients and spices in order to balance out flavors. And I am sure that each individual contributor did the same.
You might think “Oh no, another cookbook…” However, it is not just another cookbook. The Paleo AIP Instant Pot cookbook is special as it is written by the bloggers, personally affected by various autoimmune conditions, therefore all the recipes are free of common allergens. It means that you won’t find any gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, corn, nuts and even nightshades among the recipes contributed by the authors. Here is that Dr. Sarah Ballantyne says about the book:
“The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook brings delicious, hassle-free, one-pot, healthy, 100% AIP recipes to your table, making healing from autoimmune disease as easy as pressing a button!”
Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Approach
And I couldn’t agree more! At last, you can simply cook without wondering whether any ingredients in the recipe could have a negative impact on your health. With this book you can trust your guts that your gut is taken care of! And, considering that there is a strong connection between physical and mental health, recipes prepared according to this book will also have a beneficial effect on such issues as anxiety, brain fog and so on. On top of that all the recipes are delicious and you will not feel deprived. Inside you will find anything from basics, vegetables, main dishes, including offal, and even desserts! The cookbook begins with a brief description of the autoimmune protocol. Then it tells you what you need to know about your instant pot before you start cooking. What if you are on a special diet that goes beyond the autoimmune protocol? No worries! You will find the information on how you can modify recipes to enjoy them even if you are on a more restricted diet, such as low FODMAP, GAPS/SCD or a coconut-free diet. There is also a tiny section related to basic reintroductions, which can also be handy when you just start reintroducing some of the foods. In all, it contains 141 recipes, with 75 recipes exclusive to this e-book! And last, but not least, it is a fast-food cookbook! And by this I mean a fast method of cooking, which is a huge time saver!
I totally wish I had the Paleo AIP Instant Pot cookbook when I just started my healing journey! I remember when I bought the instant pot I was trying to figure out what on earth could I prepare so that the dish wouldn’t appear bland. As I had no savoir faire with the instant pot I started very slowly by steaming vegetables, making broths and pulled meat. As I gained more experience I introduced offal and seafood. I kept on experimenting by working with my favorite flavors but gosh, this book could be such a great help for me then! Imagine, you can even make condiments and desserts in the instant pot! Indeed, this e-book could be a blessing for me as I would jump start on making yummy meals from the very beginning! Another reason I would definitely invest in this Paleo AIP Instant Pot cookbook is that there are so many citrus flavored dishes – something I was desperately looking for at the beginning of my personal journey to health.
Besides, with this e-book you will have the possibility to use instant pot extensively in the kitchen. I recently returned to France, where many people live in small apartments, with tiny kitchenettes. It can be challenging to follow the AIP diet, while trying to operate in a small kitchen as one can easily feel overwhelmed with the amount of appliances required in order to follow the AIP diet. The good news is that this e-book can provide excellent solution to this issue, because a hefty amount of the recipes included in the book require the use of the instant pot only.
As you can see, this cookbook is special for a number of reasons:
1. It will help you to make delicious allergen-free dishes.
2. It will provide you with a possibility to adapt to a more specific diet if you need to.
3. It will save you time because you will have the possibility to cook quickly and will not have to wash too many utensils after.
4. It will save you space as you won’t need too many appliances if you have instant pot and the Paleo AIP Instant Pot cookbook.
5. And best of all, it will help you heal without feeling deprived!
Just to give you an idea of what you will find inside I would like to share with you one of the delish recipes featured in the e-book.
2 pound boneless pork roast,
trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium onion, diced
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
4 to 6 cloves garlic, crushed

1. Place the pork in the Instant Pot stainless steel insert. Add the onion, vinegar,
garlic, ginger, honey, turmeric, salt, ground cilantro, basil, dill,
