The very first day I walked into “Casa Sarita”, the fine dining Indian restaurant of the Park Hyatt Goa, I knew exactly what I was gonna get. While browsing through the menu in my room, my eyes were drawn to the Goan section and magnetized by “Mergol”, an Indian style pumpkin curry simmered in coconut milk with curry leaves and fresh grated coconut.
I baked these AIP grain free tea cookies one day I invited my cousin over at my house. She’s neither on the AIP nor following a gluten-free diet, but she fell in love with these cute leaf-shaped cookies so much that she asked for the recipe!
Here’s how you can make a muggy Sunday bearable: a lively conversation, comfy clothes, good company (possibly of someone you can cuddle with)… and a plate full of paleo cinnamon roll cookies to dip in hot chocolate until there’s none left in your mug!
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!
Finding good dips to add creaminess to your dishes when you are on a paleo diet or on the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) is pretty tough, so I though a nightshade free Baba Ganoush was much needed!
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.
One of the coolest things about traveling to amazing resorts is that you can meet and connect with amazing chefs from all over the world, and sometimes you can even get them to create a custom dairy free Passion Fruit Panna Cotta for you!
