Zucchini Cheese Recipe

If you have never tried this magical hippy dust called nutritional yeast, hold on tight, because you are about to get hooked on it!

Nutritional yeast contains high levels of glutathione which helps to enhance immunity and reduce inflammation. Added bonus – this magical hippy dust is a great way to add extra protein to meals and snacks. Just 2 tablespoons of it contains 9 grams of protein.

This recipe for zucchini cheese is perfect for anyone following healing diets such as a Paleo diet, Paleo Autoimmune Protocol and a low-FODMAP diet. Whilst it doesn’t contain any dairy, the nutritional yeast adds a nutty, cheesy flavour that is very satisfying. ZuCheese

Rosemary and Sage Roast Turkey

Rosemary and Sage Roast Turkey Recipe

Less than one week until Christmas!! If you’re still looking for a turkey recipe for the big day, try our Rosemary and Sage Roast Turkey. This recipe is taken from our Healed by Bacon Autoimmune Protocol Friendly Christmas Menu eBook.

AIP low fodmap gluten free sugar free christmas

We used to ask each of our guests to bring a dish to our Christmas lunch – sounds like a good plan in theory, less cooking, less cleaning up and save on money…turns out the plan is only good in theory.

One of our guests, Aunty Jane, liked to bring a “meat” dish to our Christmas dinner. Problem is, no one could ever tell what meat it actually was. In fact, one year another guest mentioned to Aunty Jane that she had slightly overcooked the pork she brought – that it was a bit tough and dry (and trust us, this guest was being very generous with ‘a bit’ tough and dry. Think chewing on a rubber boot and the dry feeling you get if you were to eat a spoon of coconut flour by itself). Looking confused, Aunty Jane replied with “Oh, I didn’t bring pork, I brought Turkey”. And from then on, (1) any meat dish Aunty Jane ever brought was just called “Mixed Miscellaneous Meat”, and (2) we started to cook the meat for Christmas dinner.

Christmas Menu

AIP low fodmap gluten free sugar free christmas

Christmas is our favourite time of year – spending time with family, baking, decorating and of course eating! So whilst Christmas is a time to celebrate and enjoy ourselves, we don’t really have the option to gorge on gluten based nibbles and sugar-laden dessert – because feeling bloated or constantly running in-and-out of the toilet isn’t a fun way to enjoy an office Christmas party or even the big event itself! Not to mention constantly trying to explain to everyone why you’re not eating certain dishes on the menu (and the story about your diet probably bores them more than Uncle Fred’s stories about which roads his friend’s brother’s cousin uses to get to work in the mornings…ah families at Christmas).

Because we still want to be able to enjoy Christmas, we have written the Healed by Bacon AIP Friendly Christmas Menu eBook. All of the recipes in our eBook are designed to help you still eat the foods that remind you of Christmas, but won’t cause reactions or inflammation. Every recipe is AIP friendly, low FODMAP, gluten free, low sugar and low carb.

The Healed by Bacon AIP Friendly Christmas Menu also contains only recipes that are quick and easy to cook – because we know how time poor you can be during the silly season. A number of the recipes, such as the pumpkin spiced Christmas pudding and the whipped coconut cream can be made ahead, leaving you more time to entertain your guests…or they can be made on the day in order to avoid your guests!

As a gift for supporting the Healed by Bacon blog, we are giving away the AIP Friendly Christmas Menu eBook to our followers. If you haven’t received your copy yet, send us an email. If you don’t follow Healed by Bacon but will still like a copy, send us an email with the subject line Christmas!!! and we reply with the pricing information.

We hope that the Healed by Bacon AIP Friendly Christmas Menu will help take some of the stress out of this time of year and let you enjoy Christmas!

Homemade Mayo

Homemade Mayo Recipe

Mayonnaise is one of those things that just makes everything taste better; chicken, bacon, eggs, veggies, you name it, it tastes better with mayo!

Unfortunately, due to the large scale production and subsidization of seed oils, we are hard pressed to find mayonnaise which doesn’t contain inflammatory seed oils. Even the ‘Olive Oil’ and ‘Whole Egg’ varieties are predominantly made with seed oils!

However, you can have your mayo and eat it too by making it yourself! This recipe will take you 10 minutes tops (even less if you use an electric beater) and I guarantee, once you make mayo yourself, you will never look back!

Oh just a quick note before you begin; this mayo is slightly runnier than commercial varieties but don’t be alarmed by this as store-bought mayo’s use industrial thickeners to provide the thicker texture.

Homemade Jerky

Homemade Jerky Recipe

I absolutely love jerky; it’s a delicious high protein, low carb, portable snack that doesn’t require an icepack when you take it for lunch! If you are like me and love jerky, you will have realized it’s extremely hard to find a good quality jerky that doesn’t contain sugars or seed oils or cost you and arm and a leg!

Given jerky is a very lean source of protein, I love to eat mine dipped in homemade mayo to ensure I’m getting enough fats in! Fortunately I have come up with this recipe that takes around 10 minutes to prepare then the dehydrator does all the work for you!

f you don’t have a dehydrator, don’t fret, you can use a conventional oven on the same temperature and it works just fine!
