Cuban Mojo Chicken with Cauliflower Rice and Roasted Root Vegetables
To make your batch-cooking session go faster, complete step 1 of this recipe the day before and let the chicken marinate overnight. Alternatively, you can prepare step 1 several days in advance and freeze. Thaw completely before using.
Baked Pesto Salmon
A layer of zippy Basil-Cilantro Pesto (page 178) really turns up the flavor on this easy sheet pan meal. When you’re making the pesto, be sure to omit the garlic if you’re following a low-FODMAP diet. And as a rule, it’s best to add the pesto only during the last 5 minutes of cooking to maximize taste and nutrients. Of course, you can enjoy the pesto raw, too: Drizzle it on practically anything, especially roasted vegetables and meats.
Turmeric Squash Risotto with Ground Beef and Collard Greens
Ah, turmeric, the golden hero of the AIP kitchen! Actually, it’s turmeric’s most active compound, curcumin, that deserves all the glory. This amazing spice is packed with health benefits: It’s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may have cancer-fighting properties, too.
Skirt Steak with Seasoned Sweet Potato Wedges and Broccoli
I never get tired of steak and fries: It’s one of my favorite treats! But I’ve learned how to make it much healthier, swapping deep-fried, potato-based fries for oven-baked sweet potato wedges. I think they’re even better than the regular version, especially when seasoned with AIP-approved spices! A side of nutrient-rich roasted broccoli rounds this meal off perfectly.
How to Use the Meal Plans in This Book
Are you ready to start meal prepping?
Begin by selecting your meal plan. Each meal plan in this cookbook has a specific theme, making it easy for you to accommodate your dietary needs (and your current mood!). Refer to the short introduction at the beginning of each plan to get a quick overview of the lineup of dishes.
Each meal plan is designed to feed one adult for five days, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a nutritious snack. This leaves you two days in which you can cook fresh or eat out. If you are cooking for a bigger crowd, increase the ingredients on the ready-made shopping lists to fit your needs.
The cooking times will remain the same, but you will probably have to execute the cooking directions in multiple batches. If you end up with leftovers, you may freeze them for later use. All the recipes in this cookbook are freezer friendly unless otherwise noted.
Here’s what meal prep can do for you:
Help you stay on track with your AIP diet.
Save money and reduce food waste.
Remove stress from your life.
Free up your time to engage in other activities.
