Enhance Your Immunity with These 5 Nourishing AIP Diet Recipes

Apr 29, 2024

Following the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet can significantly support your immune system by eliminating inflammatory foods and incorporating nutrient-dense ingredients. Here are five delicious AIP-friendly recipes designed to boost your immunity and promote overall well-being:

Turmeric Chicken Soup: This comforting soup is packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric, ginger, and garlic. Start by sautéing onions, carrots, and celery in coconut oil, then add shredded chicken, turmeric, ginger, and bone broth. Simmer until the flavors meld together, then finish with a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh parsley. Enjoy a bowlful of nourishing goodness that will warm you from the inside out.  We might suggest making a side of our 100% Plant-Based Flatbread to pair with it!

Salmon and Sweet Potato Cakes: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, wild-caught salmon is an excellent choice for immune support. Combine canned salmon with mashed sweet potatoes, chopped green onions, and AIP-friendly spices like sea salt and dill. Form the mixture into patties and pan-fry until golden brown. Serve with a side of leafy greens for a nutrient-packed meal that's as delicious as it is nutritious.  And then enjoy with one of our quick bread mixes as an easy and nutritious dessert.  Either our Banana Bread or Pumpkin Bread would go great on the plate!

Roasted Root Vegetables with Rosemary: Root vegetables like carrots, beets, and parsnips are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support immune function. Toss chopped vegetables with melted coconut oil, fresh rosemary, and sea salt, then roast until caramelized and tender. Enjoy as a hearty side dish or add diced chicken or turkey for a complete meal.

Berry Coconut Smoothie: Berries are loaded with immune-boosting antioxidants, while coconut milk provides healthy fats and electrolytes. Blend together frozen mixed berries, coconut milk, a ripe banana (if tolerated), and a handful of spinach for an extra nutrient boost. Add collagen peptides or gelatin for added protein and gut health benefits. Sip on this refreshing smoothie for a delicious way to fuel your body and support your immune system.  We think our Oatmeal Schmoatmeal Cookie Mix paired alongside any smoothie is a great option!

Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts: Garlic is renowned for its immune-enhancing properties, making it a staple ingredient in AIP cooking. Toss halved Brussels sprouts with minced garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, and sea salt, then roast until crispy and caramelized. Serve as a nutrient-dense side dish alongside your favorite protein for a satisfying and immune-boosting meal.  

Incorporate these nourishing AIP diet recipes into your meal rotation to support your immune system and promote overall health and vitality. By focusing on nutrient-dense ingredients and AIP-friendly flavors, you can enjoy delicious meals that nourish your body from the inside out. And, now it's time for a cookie!
