Crispy AIP Hashbrowns

Crispy AIP Hashbrowns

The tropical root malanga (aka yautia or ocumo) is a wonderful starchy option for those who need to avoid potatoes. It is traditionally used widely throughout Latin America and is great for those following the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) or anyone looking for new "safe starch" options to eat. You can find these roots at most Latin grocery stores around the country and sometimes at mainstream grocery stores, too (like in Florida). This recipe is an extremely simple yet incredibly delicious way to enjoy malanga - as AIP-friendly hashbrowns!

Autoimmune Paleo Colombian-Style Arepas (seriously authentic!)

Autoimmune Paleo Colombian-Style Arepas (seriously authentic!)

I created these Colombian-style arepas for the autoimmune protocol so that my roommates, husband, and I weren't stuck eating tostones every morning with breakfast as our sole starch option. My roommates are from Venezuela, so they know how to spot a good arepa! These turned out more like their neighbor Colombia's traditional arepas since they are flat, crispy, and perfect for topping with your favorite protein. Even when we all finish our Lenten AIP challenge, these are gonna remain a staple for us for breakfast! Hope you enjoy them as much as we have :)

Nightshade-free Shepherd's Pie

Nightshade-free Shepherd's Pie

Cauliflower is a wonderful and versatile vegetable, but I was left disappointed when I tried using it as the mashed topping for shepherd's pie. This recipe utilizes tropical starchy roots as the mashed potato replacement in a nourishing, nightshade- and dairy-free version of the classic dish.
