Heard about AIP but don't know where to begin?
The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook has been the trusted resource for thousands of people transitioning to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), an elimination diet that many with autoimmune disease have found helps support their best health. It consists of an elimination phase where both inflammatory foods are removed and nutrient-dense foods are added, and a reintroduction phase so you can discover your unique sensitivities to certain foods.
If you are looking for a book that contains everything you need to get started, look no further - Mickey has used her background as a personal chef to help set you up for success on your AIP journey. With delicious recipes your family will love, meal plans, shopping lists, and protocol guidance, you can't go wrong!
Here is a little taste of what you'll find inside this complete guide to the Autoimmune Protocol:
Foods to Include & Avoid
The book includes handy lists of foods to include & avoid for anyone looking to embark on the Autoimmune Protocol, as well as details on the reintroduction process.
Kitchen Tips & Tricks

Two 4-Week Meal Plans
Included in the book are two 4-week meal plans incorporating recipes in the book, as well as corresponding shopping lists. Great for those who just want to get started.

Meet the author, Mickey Trescott, NTP
I transitioned to the Autoimmune Protocol in 2012, after being diagnosed with both Celiac and Hashimoto’s disease. While getting a diagnosis was a relief, my health continued to decline until I was able to get at the root of my food allergies and sensitivities using the elimination diet. AIP was a life-changing experience for me, one that finally enabled my body to heal long-term. It is my goal to provide resources for others who want to do the same!
I’m a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and also have a background working as a home chef, helping families provide nutrient-dense meals for their kids and loved ones. In addition, I have a passion for the organization that goes in to keeping a kitchen stocked full of wholesome home-cooked meals, even while on a restricted diet. With this book, I’ve created a one-stop resource for those of you looking to embark on AIP to enable further healing in your own life.

Before listing the benefits of the content, I want to stress that the book itself appears designed for ease of use in the kitchen. The cover and binding allow the book to lay perfectly flat on the counter while you work and refer from it. The fonts and clever layout make following the recipes and sections extremely clear--even for someone suffering from brain fog. And honestly, the beautiful and inviting photography and colors actually make me WANT to try each recipe. I have found the presentation making me more driven and adventurous in the kitchen--when I usually am too tired to want create anything "new".
I love how the pantry list, shopping guides, and weeks of meal plans incorporate the recipes included in the book. This truly becomes a personal assistant for meal planning and is a wonderful aid for struggling or overwhelmed patients.
AMAZING STANDOUT RECIPES:
pg.88 Nectarine Arugula Prosciutto Wraps: the creativity in this flavorful pairing is great for snacks, or if you have to run into a market and grab 3 things.

There's the real beauty in this creative guide: All things included here are safe for those actively healing Intestinal Permeability or putting Autoimmunity into remission. Because of my strictly following this way of eating, I have:
--eliminated my chronic 20 migraines a month
--eliminated my Lyme bone and joint pain
--eliminated my Thyroid antibodies
--eliminated my Raynaud's Syndrome
This book makes following the Autoimmune Protocol easier and enjoyable. It makes meal planning manageable, and it gives Autoimmune sufferers a real sense of agency in creating their own pathway back to wellness.
Although autoimmune conditions can affect almost any part of the body, they all have the same thing in common: a confused hyperresponsive immune system. There aren’t any cures for autoimmune diseases, whether it is celiac disease, Hashimito’s thyroidis (hypothyroidism), Grave’s disease (hyperthyroidism), type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, vitiligo, lupus or multiple sclerosis (just a few examples of a very long list of autoimmune conditions). But the good news is that there are many things you can do to help alleviate your symptoms and/or even stop the progression of your disease.
One of these things, you guessed it, is diet!
Unfortunately, most conventional registered dietitians and medical doctors are not aware of the powerful connection between the foods you eat and your health. In fact, some studies now clearly show that many autoimmune conditions are associated with a leaky gut (increased intestinal permeability) which can explain how certain toxins and incompletely digested food particle can get into your blood and trigger your immune system to attack certain parts of your body. The autoimmune protocol helps correct a leaky gut and tune down the immune system to healthy levels.
But what is the autoimmune protocol? It’s basically a Paleo diet (grain-free, gluten-free, legume-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and processed food-free) with all of the anti-inflammatory, gut healing and nutrient-dense properties it has combined with a few additional rules.
Autoimmune Protocol = Paleo diet + [elimination of the following foods]
* nightshades (tomato, eggplant, bell pepper, hot pepper, tabasco, paprika, white potatoes, goji)
* eggs (all kinds, yolks & whites)
* nuts (all nuts like almonds, macadamia, cashews, walnuts and hazelnuts, but COCONUT IS OKAY!)
* seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, flax, anise, caraway, cumin, fennugreek, mustard)
* NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen…)
* artificial sweeteners (including stevia)
* thickeners (guar gum, carragenean…)
WHAT IS THERE LEFT TO EAT???!?!?!
A lot, actually!
That’s where Mickey Trescott, NTP comes to the rescue with “The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbok“.
If you are on the autoimmune protocol (or think of giving it a try), you need this book.
It will make your life so much easier. And enjoyable.
I wish I had all of these resources when I started my own journey to a better health . The recipes presented in this cookbook are ALL autoimmune protocol-friendly. There are more and more Paleo cookbooks out there than ever before but for people on the autoimmune protocol, it’s very likely that more than 2/3 of the recipes contain nuts, seeds, nightshades or eggs…
How about a cookbook from which you can cook AND eat every single recipe? And feel good about it too. That exactly what you get in this cookbook. And despite the limited amount of ingredients allowed on t his protocol, the recipes are not boring at all!
Each recipe presents an exciting and nutritious new way to satisfy both your taste buds and your body. – Aglaée Jacob, MS, RD
I already bookmarked many recipes. The first one I made is the “fig energy bites“. They’re super easy and make a great energizing snack. I also tried the ”bacon-beef liver paté with rosemary and thyme” and really like it as a spread on cucumber slices.
Here are some of the recipes I’m planning on trying in the next weeks:
* Nectarine, Aragula, and Prosciutto Wraps
* Moroccan Lamb Stew
* Cranberry-Braised Short Ribs
* Lamb Meatballs with Garlic and Spinach
* Apple-Spice Tea Cookies
* Pear-Caramel Pie
Is your mouth watering yet?
Finally, if that wasn't enough, the cookbook also includes a complete 4-week meal plan and shopping list to make your life easier. We’re all busy living our life and it’s nice to have someone plan ahead for us. All you need to do is get the foods and cook (you don’t have to cook at every meal, many meals within the week use the same recipes so you just have to cook multiple servings to have a few meals waiting for you in the fridge to eat later in the week!).
This cookbook will not only help me expand my horizons in the kitchen, but it will also simplify the life of many of my clients following a limited diet like the autoimmune protocol. I will definitely be recommending this book to my clients and anyone struggling with an autoimmune condition.
