Welcome to the Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable!

If you’re not familiar with the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), check out my series of articles. In a nutshell, it’s an elimination diet, designed to help people with autoimmune disease identify food intolerances. When you’re on the protocol, it can be hard to find recipes, because so many food groups are excluded. This recipe roundtable is here to help!


  1. Every week, I’ll be hosting this roundtable.The post will go live Wednesday nights, and the link-up feature will stay open for 7 days.
  2. Bloggers can share up to 2 recipes each week. Feel free to choose new recipes or old ones from your archives. When you link-up, type in the URL of the actual recipe rather than your blog’s home page.
  3. Recipes cannot have any of the following ingredients: processed foods, refined sugars, refined oils, grains, legumes, soy, dairy, eggs, nuts, seeds (including cocoa & coffe) or nightshades (including nightshade spices).
  4. Please ONLY post recipes (not other kinds of articles). This roundtable is all about the food.
  5. Every week, I’ll highlight the reader favorite (most clicked link) from the prior week’s roundtable, as well as my favorite.
  6. Please provide a link back to the roundtable, somewhere in the post(s) you’re sharing.
  7. Feel free to grab a badge to help spread the AIP love.
  8. Recipes that don’t comply with stated rules and guidelines will be respectfully removed.
  9. To be reminded of each week’s roundtable, simply subscribe to my blog (box in the sidebar).
  10. To browse through past roundtables, you can find the whole list here.

  7. Hi Eileen,

    This week I shared a recipe for pesto-olive spaghetti sauce. It’s a favorite at our house, and while I’m on AIP, I made it using some spinach pesto that’s nut- and cheese-free. The post has a link to the pesto recipe.

    Thanks so much for featuring my cream of chicken soup!

  9. Why do you exclude legumes? Do you ever eat them? I’m reading The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and he advocates a plant-based diet. I am also a fan of Masanobu Fukuoka who also followed a grain plus vegetables diet for a healthy living. I like bone broth a lot, makes a big difference in terms of taste. But this is all very confusing. On the one hand, there are people who live long and healthy lives with just vegetables and grains and others like you who eat mostly meat and are able to heal their body. Also, I stopped meat for about a week and added bread and legumes and gained immediately about 2 lbs. What is your thoughts on eating plant-based diet only?

    • There are lots of dietary philosophies. I tried vegetarianism first (like many people in the autoimmune community) but my inflammation didn’t go down until I gave up the grains and legumes. In the end, I trust my own body. But if you want to know why grains and legumes are eliminated from the paleo diet, here are two helpful articles: grain manifesto and legume manifesto. As for the China Study, it’s popular but not scientifically accurate. He cherrypicked evidence to support his theories. Here is a great article that compares the data of the original study to Campbell’s interpretation: . Sadly, we can’t believe everything we read. What I love about the paleo community is that it’s a group of people doing self-experimentation. They only stay paleo if it works for them personally, and of all the diets that claim to address autoimmunity, paleo seems to have the highest number of success stories (like mine). That’s why I dedicate this blog to that diet. However, I need to correct you on one misperception. I eat meat, but my diet is not “mostly meat.” In fact, I eat more vegetables than most vegetarians. You might be interested in pre-ordering the Wahls Protocol. She advocates a paleo diet with 9 cups of vegetables per day. That’s my diet. And here’s an article busting the meat-only paleo myth.

      • Great answer, thanks. I am now eating only brussels sprouts, butternut squash, white rice, potato, bone broth, lamb and beef. I am planning to add green beans and lettuce and collard greens if I don’t react to them. I hope that once all salicylates are eliminated from my body I’ll be able to eat more stuff. But I am not sure if this is the case.

        Do you exclude white rice as well? Rice (potato too) is recommended by Perfect Health Diet as “safe starch”.

        Unfortunately, I am not that good to measure the ratio of vegetables to meat. During the week, I go to work, and I usually bring a bowl of vegetables with me for lunch and at night I eat a bowl of bone broth with vegetables. For breakfast I eat leftovers. On weekends I noticed that I eat more meat, because I have more time to cook. Today for instance, I had flounder and later 2 lamb chops. I ate the meat with boiled brussels sprouts and the fish with potato. So how do I know if I am eating a balanced diet? Maybe I should count my vegetables by cup. I don’t know if I ate 9 cups today. Also do you measure cooked vegetables or before cooking? Thanks again.

        • Hi Zeynel. Everyone’s a little different, so pay attention to how you feel. If you feel balanced throughout the day, variety in macronutrient ratios is fine. A lot of people swear by the Perfect Health Diet. I can’t have potatoes myself because I’m nightshade-intolerant. I have eaten white rice but didn’t find it to be satiating for me, so I tend to stick with veggies. As for the 9 cups – you measure them raw. It’s much less once they’re cooked, especially for greens.

          • I think I didn’t have a good notion of measurement. I bought a measuring cup today and measured my brussels sprouts. I thought they were so much, but it turned out only 5 cups. I cannot imagine eating them in one day.

            For white rice, I made it with bone broth from beef shanks and I put a little ghee in it and turned out well. I personally find it satiating and it helps me avoid bread.

            I am still not sure if it is ok to eat bone broth every day, but my research online tells me that it’s ok. What do you think?

            Thanks again for your answers.

          • I eat bone broth daily, myself, and the way you’re cooking white rice sounds very nutritious!
