Big update and I need your input!

Big update and I need your input!

First of all, I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you who have been faithfully following, commenting,and cooking up all of my recipes! When I started just weeks ago, I thought I would try this for a week or two and, if no one came to the site, I’d shut it down. Wow. That is not what happened.

It turned out that many of you were just as desperate as I was to feel some sort of normalcy in your diets. Your encouragement, shares and comments have humbled me so much and made my cooking so much more fulfilling!

So what’s the news?

I am working on a cookbook! From appetizers to entrees to desserts, I’ll be covering lots and lots of good food.

My goal with this book is to greatly expand what I’ve been doing on this blog: making nutrient-dense, AIP foods that are so delicious you can sneak them past your friends and family. I’ve been working on tons of recipes that I really want to share, but know I have to save some for the book, too!

Here’s where you come in:

What would you like to see in the cookbook? Even if you think there is NO WAY it could be AIP-ified, try me! I am open to any and all suggestions, so lay them on me.

If you haven’t already “liked” my Facebook page, be sure to do so! I will update there as things move along!

PS – Yes, I’ll keep posting here! I plan to continue to post once or twice per week while I’m in the writing process!

    I would love it if you could come up with a recipe for chili and one for chicken tortilla soup. Also, I am doing AIP within the GAPS protocol limits, so unfortunately I can’t have anything with arrowroot powder in it. I don’t suppose you could come up with a recipe for tortillas or pie crust that would work without that? I have tried making a pie crust with butternut squash and coconut flour, which was ok, but got soggy once I put the filling on it, and would have been better if I hadn’t been able to detect the squashy flavor. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful recipes!

    Lasagna with lots of cheese, please.

  3. Lisa August 21, 2014 at 11:40 am #

    I REALLY miss Mexican food. Some sort of enchiladas or tacos. I’m still new to AIP so I haven’t found any seasonings yet that mimic this.

    thank you so much. i have been disgruntled with my egg allergy and eating paleo which emphasizes them but i will be baking your lemon cookies and hope to try other recipes baked with the gelatin eggs. I am feeling very encouraged with the substitutes i am finding and am grateful for your blog…just bookmarked it!

    Mmm… Chicken & broccoli alfredo over AIP pasta!

  6. Chloe August 3, 2014 at 5:15 pm #

    Ooey gooey chocolate (well…carob) chip cookies! emphasis on the ooey and gooey

    I would love a nice Teriyaki Sauce. I was doubtful about your Nomato sauce (the first I’ve tried), but it came out wonderfully. Thank you!! :)

    Great blog! Would love some treat coconut free recipes, they are as rare as hen’s teeth!

  9. ourcozycastle July 20, 2014 at 5:30 am #

    i too would love some crockpot recipes! i just found your site this week, thanks to a sweet friend, and am really looking forward to trying the tortillas first.
    AIP is something i know i need to do but it feels so impossible. having a few tried and true recipes to fall back on will really help.

    also – would love key/note/*asterisk or something added to recipes that show things like:
    *freezes well
    *keeps in fridge for “x” days
    *freeze up to “x”” months
    *refrigeration not required – keeps for “x” days in pantry

    maybe a list of your tried and true store-bought/pre-packaged items or brand names

    thanks for taking on this challenge and sharing the results publicly. i’m so glad to have some great and SIMPLE recipe ideas to add to my arsenal. fatigue being one of my greates health problems, simplicity is such a priority. if it’s not easy to make, it won’t happen. and i NEED it to happen in hopes one day i’ll get rid of the fatigue and find my energy!

    I’ve only just come across your website – teriffic!!! I don’t seem to tolerate coconut products at all (except coconut oil) so I’d really appreciate recipes that don’t use any coconut product (except oil) at all please. I did use to be able to tolerate coconut milk but not anymore, so frustrating. And if you could come up with a coconut free AIP scone recipe, I’d be ecstatic!!! :-D Thank you!

  11. Gillian July 17, 2014 at 5:40 pm #

    Oh my gosh, this site is AMAZING!!! You have so many recipes that I never thought could be ‘AIP-ified’ or at least not simply, and yet here they are. I’m definitely going to try the tortillas this week – I’ve really been missing tacos since I went Paleo. Keep it up – I can’t wait for your book!

    • Breanna July 19, 2014 at 8:08 am #

      Thank you so much, Gillian! Hope you your enjoy taco night!! :)

  12. Jana July 17, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

    Wow – just love your site and have tried many of your yummy recipes: giving the Coconut Pie a try this weekend! :)
    I would LOVE to see Breakfast recipes; I find that with AIP I resort to protein/sausage only and would love to see some more ideas for those who cannot do eggs.
    Speaking of eggs: your GELATIN egg is a stroke of pure brilliance — works like a charm in your recipes!
    Keep up the good work – we’re all so thankful for your efforts!!

    • Breanna July 19, 2014 at 8:12 am #

      Thank you so much, Jana!! Your compliments mean so much! I’m with you on the breakfast ideas – it sure gets boring! I am working on some pretty exciting breakfasts for the book! :)

    AIP and low histamine recipes please!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Anonymous July 9, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

    Salad dressings

  15. Sylvie July 9, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

    Hi Breanna, I think your my new food hero!!! Can’t wait to try some of your recipes especially the pizza crust. You wanted some suggestion and one thing I can’t seem to find is a Paleo/Aip mayonnaise recipe. Most of the egg free ones have nuts, flax or chia which I can’t have.
    Thanks so much for all your great recipes.

    I appreciate a few easy recipes/ lunch recipes/ and shopping lists :)

  18. Valerie July 5, 2014 at 3:38 pm #

    I have tried and loved your snickerdoodle, carob brownie and pizza crust recipes, but they don’t seem to love me. I would love baked recipes without a lot of coconut flour and starch ingredients. I also would love to see crockpot recipes.

    • Breanna July 10, 2014 at 4:05 pm #

      I’m sorry to hear the flours bothered you. How long have you been AIP? I found at the beginning, coconut flour bothered me when I ate too much, but I tolerate it very well now.

  19. Nicole July 5, 2014 at 2:50 pm #

    This is great news! My daughter loves to bake and would like to bake for me. She is 12, so things that require a lot of steps are hard. With having a family of 6 anything that is one dishor crockpot would be phenomenal.

    • Breanna July 10, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

      One dish is the best. Totally agree! Have you tried the roasted chicken over hearty vegetables yet? That’s my personal favorite dinner and is one dish!

  20. Alaena @ Grazed & Enthused July 4, 2014 at 9:18 pm #

    Awesome!! Congrats! Something I haven’t been interested in AIP-ifying myself is a lower starch pizza crust. Is there anyway to do this!?

    • Breanna July 19, 2014 at 8:14 am #

      Hey Alaena!! Thanks for stopping by! By lower starch, what are you trying to omit? Like just arrowroot starch or also starchy veggies?

    • Breanna July 19, 2014 at 8:16 am #

      What about a cauliflower crust and subbing gelatin eggs? I have only tried a cauliflower crust once, and it failed miserably so I haven’t again. Maybe a combo of cauliflower, gelatin and coconut flour? Let me know what you try! :)

  21. Jenifer July 4, 2014 at 6:38 pm #

    I, and a lot of others out there, would LOVE a whole section on AIP – low histamine. It is such a hard diet to figure out. Another helpful section might be AIP – fodmap free section. Just some ideas for those of us floundering out there

  22. Pascale July 4, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

    I had watermelon gazpacho the other day, but an aip modified one!
    Oh and mint milanos!!

  23. shelese July 4, 2014 at 6:09 pm #

    Congrats! I am excited for you! And I’m excited for more recipes from you too! I have tried several and have loved them. Definitely talented. I usually don’t comment much on posts, but I make the effort to tell you that I love you because it has been so helpful to have your recipes- and I’m sure it takes a lot of time.

    I miss ketchup and spaghetti sauce. I tried a nomato sauce and to me it just tasted like borscht. I haven’t found anything that quite fits with me.

    Have you tried Hail Merry brand of miracle tarts? The meyer lemon one is pretty close to Aip. But there is almond flour and cashews in it. If you could revamp that into AIP that would be amazing.

    I keep trying different recipes to see if I can get my kids to like anything AIP, but haven’t had much luck there.

  24. Jackie July 4, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

    Recipes low in FODMAPs and AIP. They’re rare but in demand!

  25. Grace scholl July 4, 2014 at 5:01 pm #

    I agree with all above. Aip is hard for me to come up with meals- put down for the first sale!!

  26. Gwen July 4, 2014 at 4:43 pm #

    Yay!!! I am THRILLED for you! Your recipes are easy to follow and EVERY single one I have tried has been great! I would love to see some Mexican food recipes. To me, Mexican food is difficult to recreate without using nightshades. I volunteer to be a taste-tester!! :)

  27. jen July 4, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Easy kid friendly meals. And it must be because its 4th of July but bbq and peach cobbler sound amazing. Those would be fun to see

  28. Pam Medina July 4, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Tomato & chili pepper replacement recipes…especially Mexican foods.

  29. Alchemille July 4, 2014 at 4:23 pm #

    Wonderful news, this is exciting! Since AIP is fairly recent, there is a need for more AIP cookbooks. The biggest challenge in my view is 1/to replace tomatoey things and 2/baked goods, especially with more choice than the obligate coconut flour (which I like, don’t get me wrong).

  30. Mary Ann Knoke July 4, 2014 at 4:19 pm #

    Some good casserole recipes would help this mama out! Easy and fast are definitely a plus! So excited for your journey and I definitely plan on buying your book! Your recipes so far have been a lifesaver!

  31. Tangie July 4, 2014 at 4:14 pm #

    Some AIP spin on mac and cheese would be amazing. I know people have successfully utilized butternut squash-type sauces for “cheese” and maybe some kind of veggie noodle… Maybe wishful thinking but I would do cartwheels if you figured it out. :) Thanks for all you do to help make AIP a tasty lifestyle.

    • Breanna July 4, 2014 at 5:48 pm #

      Ohhhhh I like it. My kids would, too! I have some ideas already…

  32. No Common Sensory Mom July 4, 2014 at 4:12 pm #

    Nightshade fee gazpacho please. If anyone can do it it’s you!

    • Breanna July 4, 2014 at 5:47 pm #

      Want to know something embarassing? I’ve never had it! I’ll look into it!

  33. Wendy July 4, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

    Chicken paprikash

  34. Anonymous July 4, 2014 at 3:52 pm #

    Chicken wings with something like Frank’s hot sauce

    • Breanna July 4, 2014 at 5:46 pm #

      Oh you are speaking my language right there!
