He Won't Know it's Paleo!

Bre’anna with husband Chris 

 

Today, author, blogger, wife and mum Bre’anna Emmitt from He Won’t Know it’s Paleo  joins us for a chat! Thanks so much for your time Bre’anna – and huge congratulations on the publication of your first cookbook He Won’t Know it’s Paleo! It is a beautiful book with gorgeous, inspiring recipes that, as you say, “bridges the gap between a standard diet and the paleo Autoimmune Protocol”, and in such a delicious way! For those of you that don’t know, the name of Bre’anna’s blog came about after Bre’anna started preparing paleo meals for her husband and family – and it was 6 months before she told her husband!

This is going to be the quickest recipe ever written! I made this salad today, for our first official AIP picnic here in Sydney, and I thought it turned out so well I couldn’t wait to get it written up and on the blog! (Well that, and I didn’t want to forget what I’d put in it 😉 ) Continue Reading

Roasted or baked chicken is such a favourite of mine. It’s usually pretty cheap, it doesn’t take much for it to taste amazing and you can keep the bones to make stock! Yay!! Even If I’m not having a whole chicken (like for this recipe, where I used the super juicy thighs), I just collect together the little bones, freeze them and keep adding to my stash until I have enough to boil up for a good old bone broth. Win-ning! Continue Reading

I love making meatballs, they are so easy to batch cook and great to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And these little babies are my new favourites! Not only are they a delicious way to get extra veg into your meal, they also pack a great anti-inflammatory punch from turmeric, garlic and ginger.

I’ve been able to reintroduce raw cacao into my diet! I know – exciting!! After 5 months with no chocolate it’s been really nice to get that flavour back – plus the antioxidant hit that raw cacao gives. If you’re following the autoiummune protocol (AIP) and haven’t added raw cacao back in yet you can easily sub carob which has it’s own health benefits, including being a rich source of phosphorous and calcium.

But What Do I Eat For Breakfast? Check Out This New AIP Breakfast Cookbook!

 

85 AIP Breakfasts

Check out this great new e-book!

 

My biggest question when I decided to start the Autoimmune Protocol was, seriously, “but what will I eat for breakfast?”. And it’s really hard to think outside the (cereal) box when we’re so used to eating grains! For me, breakfast would usually be would be toast, porridge, or muesli, a couple of boiled eggs, or yoghurt with berries and nuts (yummm….still missing that one). On AIP we can’t have any of these things! So what do we eat? Continue Reading

End of week 9 – well, well, well! Not too much has changed this week….after my adventure with almonds last week I decided to lay of trying to reintroduce any more nuts for the time being and instead decided to try adding back seed based spices. I tried fennel seeds at the beginning of the week and cumin and cardamom last night. All seemed to go well with the fennel seeds but I don’t feel that great today after the cumin and cardamom. Not sure if it’s related or not, but I think I’ll steer clear of cumin and cardamom for a few days til I feel better and then try them again! Continue Reading

I’m into week 6 of AIP now, who would have thought it? Certainly not me! I remember first reading about AIP a couple of years ago and thinking “oh no, something that restrictive is definitely not for me”. I’d just been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and I was still at the stage of thinking that thyroxine was going to put right everything that had been wrong. Then some more time passed and I experimented with cutting out sugar, cutting out gluten, cutting out processed foods and noticed I was definitely feeling better. Then I started reading about AIP again and the more it started to make sense to me… Continue Reading
