Cantaloupe and prosciutto are a classic combination as an appetizer – but on a bed of arugula with a caper/oregano dressing? YUM!
Moules Mariniere (Sailor Style Mussels) are a fun way to get more fish into your diet. Traditional Moules Mariniere are steamed in wine, but adaptations have been made here for the AIP diet.

This Mediterranean Salad w/Shrimp is light and bright with an occasional hit of saltiness. It’s for everyone – not just folks on the AIP!
Picadillo is traditionally ground beef with tomatoes, peppers, onions, raisins and olives. I’ve taken out the nightshades, and added an ingredient that, according to my research, is often added in the Philippines – chayote squash!
Lamb Mint Meatballs with Tzatziki Sauce is perfect for an appetizer, and meal, or for small plates. And it’s allergy friendly!
There is nothing like a hearty serving of shepherd’s pie when the temps get ridiculously cold. But it need not be bland! In this rendition, the meat is succulent bites of tender chuck roast, the gravy is embellished with some in-your-face balsamic vinegar, and the topping is white sweet potato mashed with turnips. It takes a while to make, but I promise you upon the life of my pressure cooker that it will be worth it.
This Spaghetti Sauce has NO TOMATOES in it – or peppers, or nightshades of any kind – but it is rich and tastes just like the original!
These Mini Chicken Pot Pies are worth all the time it takes to make them, especially for those of us on the AIP/Paleo who might miss the old-fashioned kind because of being gluten free and dairy free.
