These are 10 of the best easy recipes for when following the AIP diet! They’re made with easy to find ingredients and many can be made in one pan.
The autoimmune protocol can be challenging, especially if you’re in the throws of an autoimmune flare. The last thing you want to do is try to decipher recipes that are just too labor intensive if you’re not feeling your best. Though I feel like baked goods and more involved recipes have their place in the AIP when you’re really just looking for a special meal or a treat, there is so much opportunity to have meals that are both easy and delicious!
These recipes are all easy to make with easy to find ingredients like ground beef, chicken breast, vegetables, and simple staples like coconut aminos, arrowroot starch, cooking fats, and seasonings.
