Eating for both nutrient density and the Autoimmune Protocol has never been so easy thanks to The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen!

In The Nutrient-Dense Kitchen, Mickey teaches you everything you need to know about eating like a nutrivore. You’ll start with a comprehensive tour of nutrients that are essential for both optimal health and deep healing. You’ll also get an overview of Autoimmune Protocol details, some creative ideas for affordably sourcing the highest-quality and most nutrient-dense ingredients, and tips for setting up your kitchen to cook whole foods.

In addition to the recipes you’ll find five sets of meal plans and shopping lists to quick-start your approach to eating for nutrient density. The seasonal meal plans focus on ingredients that are at their peak ripeness and availability in the spring or fall seasons, while the budget meal plan incorporates recipes with an eye for affordability.

FODMAP Free AIP, aiprecipecollection.comThis book comes highly recommended by Angie Alt and Mickey Trescott of Autoimmune Wellness.

“FODMAPs is an acronym for fermentable carbohydrates found in common foods. FODMAPs stand for Fermentable Oligosaccharides (fructans and galactans), Disaccharhides (lactose), Monosaccharides (fructose), and Polyols (sugar alcohols). FODMAP intolerance means that fructose and other longer chain carbohydrates are difficult to break down and then ferment in the distal small intestine or in the large intestine and can cause symptoms like gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, excessive burping, depression, fatigue, headache and even decreased mental clarity aka “brain fog”.

The FODMAP Free Paleo menu includes 4 weeks of Autoimmune Paleo recipes for those needing to identify and remove FODMAPS that may be causing digestive distress. Easily apply the AIP minus FODMAPs with this delicious 4 week menu plan. This menu plan may also be applied for those with SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Now let’s get cooking!”

35 AIP meals that take 15 minutes or less to prep (aka 15mins of your time from counter to oven … then you relax).
Some are made in the oven, some are made in the slow cooker.

“This project came out of my need to make my AIP meals effortless. I wanted the oven to do the work, not me. I did not want to stand around the kitchen and tend to different pots cooking. I also did not want a lot of dishes to wash after preparing dinner. You will notice that these are simple, easy recipes that have no tricky ingredients in them. I maintained the starch, vegetable and protein component of traditional meals as well. This was helpful because the flavors stay separate and it is not like eating a casserole or stew every night.

Everything cooks in ONE dish. You can use a sheet pan, braising dish or a large cast iron skillet with a lid. (Read: EASY prep and hardly any cleanup!!)

This ebook is perfect for those on AIP who literally have no time or are frustrated by how long your AIP meals take. These recipes are easy, straightforward, contain no organ meats or unusual ingredients. You probably have half the ingredients in your fridge right now.

This is an uncomplicated collection of recipes. I used the oven for almost all of these, so now that summer is coming to a close, this ebook will be perfect timing for fall cooking. Fantastic for beginners or for those who have non-AIP eaters in your house.”

The Autoimmune SolutionMORE THAN A COOKBOOK! So it’s listed in both cookbooks and good reads.

“The Autoimmune Solution” by Dr. Amy Myers is not just a cookbook – it’s an all-round Autoimmune Resource.

“The Autoimmune Solution is about as comprehensive as it gets, and although she is not the first one to recognize the powerful effect that an anti-inflammatory diet has on treating illness, Dr. Myer’s book provides a must-read, all-in-one “how-to” guide for anyone suffering from autoimmune symptoms. Dr. Myers not only provides the science and explanations as to how the inflammation develops in the first place, but also practical suggestions for how to reverse it. She supplies us with plenty of mouth-watering recipes and meal plans, along with specific suggestions as to how and where to start making her suggested lifestyle changes. It’s one thing to be told what we should be doing, but it’s altogether another to be given specific resources and tools so we can easily take action.”

NOTE: Dr. Myers recommends “The Myers Way” as an autoimmune diet – this varies slightly from the AIP but is similar. It may or may not be right for you. I’m including this book in the recommended reads because the information is exceptional!
