You made it through the elimination period of the autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet, but now what? The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook shows you how to successfully implement and track the reintroduction of inflammatory foods through all four stages with appropriate recipes and food lists.
The AIP diet is quickly gaining ground as the top health-supportive diet for autoimmune conditions. To follow this elimination diet, inflammatory foods are removed for 30–90 days. After the elimination period, the foods are then reintroduced in four stages to see if they can be tolerated. While eliminating foods can be daunting, the reintroduction phase of the diet is the most anxiety-provoking and failure-prone part of the process for AIP followers. Each stage of the reintroduction must be done methodically and carefully so that an autoimmune flare is not triggered.
AIP Certified Coach Kate Jay of the popular blog Healing Family Eats eases the challenge of reintroduction by guiding you step by step through every stage. One hundred tantalizing recipes, divided by stage, add pleasure to the process. Enjoy:
Spice-Spatchcocked Chicken with Lime Gravy (Stage 1)
Pear, Raspberry, and Cardamom Galette (Stage 1)
Roasted Pomegranate Carrots on Whipped Tahini (Stage 2)
Strawberry Vanilla Chia Seed Parfait (Stage 2)
Lentil Ragu on Rutabaga Noodles (Stage 3)
Blackberry Streusel Muffins (Stage 3)
Vietnamese Pork with Noodles and Roasted Peanuts (Stage 4)
Rice Pudding with Blood Orange and Saffron (Stage 4)
Along with the recipes and food lists, she offers best practices and troubleshooting advice, including how to handle an unsuccessful food reintroduction and when the next stage can be introduced.
Let The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook be your reassuring companion as you take the next step in your AIP journey.

“Kate Jay has produced a very practical and visually beautiful cookbook that also serves as a guidebook back to health for people suffering from autoimmune illness.“ —James L. Wilson ND, PhD - Author of Adrenal Fatigue: the 21st Century Stress Syndrome.
“Although the “elimination-provocation” diet was foundational in the early days of functional medicine, none of us could have predicted it would explode into the health movement it is today. The diet was always meant to be a temporary immune reset and not a permanent way of life—oral tolerance, which depends on dietary diversity, is vital to managing autoimmunity. That’s what makes The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook a great addition to your toolkit. Kate Jay’s recipes entice the reader into a new culinary approach to lifelong health that is as appetizing as it is anti-inflammatory.” —Datis Kharrazian Ph.D., DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN
