Tostones!

Tostones!

Do you ever get cravings for plain starchy foods?  I do, all the time.  And when I get these cravings, it’s really a savory carb that I’m after, and sweet potatoes aren’t going to do it for me.  There aren’t too many AIP-compliant foods that […]

Best Ever Baked Sweet Potatoes

I’m not sure about you, but I’m willing to bet that like me, you eat a lot of sweet potatoes.  They are a pretty great staple food when you’re on the autoimmune protocol: they are filling, versatile, and fairly portable–not to mention they are frickin’ […]
