Easy Paleo AIP Breaded Fish Recipe (Using Cod)

Paleo AIP Breaded Baked Cod Recipe

This is the AIP (autoimmunne-friendly) version of the regular breaded fish recipe (posted here). This recipe is nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, but it still tastes great.  I used cod here, but you can use other types of fish instead.

Enjoy with the garlic ghee sauce – it’s tasty, really easy to make, and highly nutritious! This is a great way to get more fish into your diet.

Apparently (and somewhat bizarrely), if you plant a cookie from Go Raw in the ground, then it will grow.

My guess is that it doesn’t grow a cookie-tree, which is sad.

I’ve always wanted a cookie-tree…

Paleo and AIP Chicken Salad Recipe With Grapes, Apple, and Celery

AIP CHICKEN SALAD RECIPE

I’ve always loved chicken salad recipes – you can make a large batch and store them easily in the fridge. And they’re great as a quick snack, a side dish, or even an entire meal if you’re hungry!

But most chicken salad recipes involve mayo (recipe here), which is not only a hassle to make on a Paleo diet but also isn’t AIP-friendly if you have autoimmune issues (read more about AIP here and get the AIP Food List here).

And onto this AIP chicken salad recipe…

C.A. Newberry is fascinated by varied topics and believes in the power of continued learning. Her varied background includes event coordination followed closely by years of “whatever additional duties the job requires.” After retirement she had the desire to share her collected wisdom. When not at her computer, you can find her at the ballpark with her family. Connect with her on Twitter.

Chronic conditions are very high and are rising. Over nineteen million American adults are currently living with diabetes and over 580,000 deaths were attributed to cancer in 2013.

Altogether, over 130 million Americans are living with some type of a chronic condition.

Food Matters

For countless individuals, one simple answer lies with food.

Thousands of people are making the switch to Paleo every day, and chronic health conditions like autoimmune disorders, IBS, and diabetes are some of the biggest reasons.

And a significant number of people have reported experiencing an overall positive effect on their well-being and how they function every day.

The food you choose to eat affects both your health and your risk for disease, and if you’re currently dealing with some type of chronic disease, then your food choices can potentially help manage symptoms.

But that all changed when I got into a Paleo diet – in fact, I started to really enjoy cooking. And I started accumulating cookware and equipment.

These 4 pieces of cooking equipment have made my life and Paleo diet so much easier, and I hope you find them helpful too.

How To Make Ghee In Slow Cooker

how to make ghee in slow cooker

What Is Ghee?

Ghee is clarified butter (i.e., the oil that’s left after removing the milk solids from butter). Ghee is very commonly used in Indian cooking, but you’ll also find many French chefs using clarified butter.

And if you want to know more about the benefits of ghee, then check out our article here.

If making your own ghee is too much hassle, then I highly recommend this delicious brand made with grass-fed butter and cultured so that pretty much all the lactose and casein is removed.

How To Make Ghee In Slow Cooker

It’s pretty simple and quick, and you can make ghee yourself in the slow cooker (or crockpot) in a couple of hours. If you don’t have a slow cooker or crockpot, then you can use a regular pot on a stove (I recommend one with high sides to minimize the splattering).

It is extremely delicious. Proof for this is that my whole family (husband and two kids) LOVES it.
