Papaya is such an amazing fruit! I started falling in love with it when I was living in South East Asia, where they simply serve them with a squeeze of lime on top, as they are naturally so rich and flavorful!
Plantain is by far one of my favorite ingredients. It’s the perfect replacement for white potatoes (and those who are intolerant to nightshades or on the AIP know how important it is to find good subs), it makes for amazing chips and it can easily be turned into a grain free flour too.
Zoremi is not a big fan of Indian food. She can’t bear the taste of masala in pretty much every single dish, the way they like it here in Goa.
She comes from Darjeeling, in the North East side of India, where – as she tells me – the local cuisine is more similar to Chinese, since it’s so close to the Himalayas and Tibet.
Amongst the dietary restrictions of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), which prescribes to avoid grains, legumes, eggs, dairy, nightshades, nuts and seeds for a minimum of 30 days, fruit and seed based spices are pretty tough ingredients to eliminate.
Let’s see if you can relate: do you have a husband who’s a total gym addict and gulps down questionable mixtures of… ‘stuff’ while he thinks you are not watching him, but instead you are?
Italians typically measure ingredients by weight, in grams. Specifically when making careful measurements (tapioca, for example) it’s imperative to have accurate amounts.
Eating out while on a restricted diet is one of those challenges that can make you quit the AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) because “it’s too hard and I already cheated anyway”.
