    Well. I was excited to read this book, in the event that it might have some tips to help my friends and family with autoimmune conditions to feel better. But then, I read page two of the first chapter...I don't agree with nor appreciate the assertion that "poor diet and lifestyle" is a "factor that needs to be present" for one to develop an autoimmune disorder. Not only is it completely untrue, it's also insulting and hurtful to people dealing with these illnesses - it is NOT THEIR FAULT. Figuri Well.

Not only is it completely untrue, it's also insulting and hurtful to people dealing with these illnesses - it is NOT THEIR FAULT. Figuring maybe things got a bit more helpful after page TWO, I read on, but it just kept rolling downhill. In the very next paragraph, we're told that by eating this magical diet "your symptoms will slowly disappear" - again, setting people up for failure. If their disorder doesn't "reverse" itself or go away by following this protocol, then just how will they feel about that - like failures? Like it's their fault? Wouldn't it make more sense, both scientifically and psychologically and ETHICALLY, to instead state that this food plan MAY help them to feel BETTER, instead of setting up unrealistic expectations that will frustrate people who are already suffering? Some of the recipes looked interesting, and I plan to try them out. But heaven help you if you are a vegetarian. So. File this under the popular category of "wellness" books that market themselves as helpful but are in fact just high-horsey and full of scientifically dubious claims and ultimately, a waste of time. *Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC, provided by the author and/or the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Let me stress here, following the AIP is not easy, but this book is supposed to help make the transition more easy for you with weekly meal plans, including shopping lists, and yummy looking recipes. To be honest, I was browsing through the book before I read the introduction. A lot of the recipes looked so good, I wanted to try them at once. Then, I started reading and read the words: fish, seafood and organ meat. Ugh! Those have put me off potential AIP diets before, though mainly because I had no idea how to incorporate them into my life. This book offers intersting recipes that I can see myself trying, like the Liver Paté recipe.

Sophie Van Tiggelen This is a fab recipe book for those who have an autoimmune disease or have friends/family that suffer from one. Having been afflicted by terrible stomach issues for 5-10 years and having been told that they the tests I have had strongly suggest I have Crohns disease I figured I should try and do something dietary to hopefully increase the chances of remission and lessen my long-term suffering. So when this book popped up and I was approved for an advance copy I was overjoyed. Sophie Van Tiggelen is a popular Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) blogger and has compiled these recipes into an easy and accessible book. All of the recipes look tasty and simple to prepare and the full colour photographs give you an idea of what you should be aiming for. "The Autoimmune Protocol Made Simple Cookbook" is an excellent resource for those of us with an autoimmune disorder but I do not agree with all the points being made. Firstly, the book almost blames sufferers themselves for having an autoimmune disease by stating that lifestyle and diet are the causes. I know that lifestyle/diet can make a difference but they certainly aren't the cause. Secondly, there are some quite dramatic assertions that by changing to the AIP diet your symptoms will drastically improve. I feel that unless this has been scientifically proven then they have no right to make these bold claims. Evidence is what is needed and until then no such statements should be made. I am going to try out these recipes and I do hope to gain some benefit from the change but I do think that the approach should've been very different. Blaming those who suffer from an AI disorder is no good for anyone. Many thanks to Quarto Publishing Group – Fair Winds Press for an ARC. I was not required to post a review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

I certainly have been using this book over the last few weeks and can’t wait to continue to use it and to go through all of the recipes to find my go to staples. Fab.

Defiantly give this one a try! *thanks to NetGalley.com for providing me with a free e-copy of this book in exchange for a free and honest review!*

    I received an Advanced Reader Copy from Fair Winds Press for my unbiased opinion of the book. I enjoyed this book loved the layout, pictures, and recipes. Such as Crispy Yucca Fries, Gut-Healing Turmeric Gummies, Fluffy Plantain Pancakes. I would consult a doctor before taking this book word for word. With that said, I found many ideas formulas, recipes great in helping me manage my Rheumatoid Arthritis. I look forward to trying all the ideas as well as recipes going forward!

    I was very excited to receive this book since I suffer from autoimmune disorders. This cookbook was very good about going over what foods are good and bad for many with autoimmune disorders. While certain foods affect people differently, it gives a great starting point to figure out which foods you can or cannot handle well. Many of the recipes sound quite appetizing, yet some did not appeal to me. I would love to have seen more pictures throughout , though the ones used were beautiful.

It would have been nice to see nutritional information for each of the recipes, but they are unfortunately not present in this cookbook. However, despite there being a few things I would change, I feel like this is a great cookbook and I am very excited to try out some of the new recipes in here. I especially am interested in trying some that utilize cauliflower rice since I love using cauliflower rice in recipes. There were many other new recipes that I will definitely be adding to my arsenal of staple meals as well! I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    If you’re looking to radically change your life and sick of being sick, then this cookbook is for you. Having an autoimmune disease means multiple trips to doctors, multiple prescriptions, and usually becoming withdrawn from society. This book offers a comprehensive way to eliminate foods (like nightshade) that promote inflammation and other triggers. The downside is that this diet is expensive and could mean you’re the only one in your household eating the foods from the recipes.

It’s tagline on the cover states “Start Healing Your Body and Reversing Chronic Illness Today with 100 Delicious Recipes” and this is what really caught my eye.

I am very interested in learning what a person can do to improve a chronic illness by using nutrition as a natural way to work with your body. Even the dedication, inspired me to dive into this book – “This book is dedicated to all Autoimmune warriors. “The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well” -Hippocrates. Autoimmune Disease affects approximated 50 million Americans. Many of the diseases you have heard of; rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and lupus just to name a few. In all autoimmune diseases our immune system which should be protecting us from pathogens instead turns on our own bodies and attacks our proteins, cells and tissues. Depending on which tissues your body is attacking, determines the type of autoimmune disease you have. These are chronic, lifelong diseases and they come with debilitating symptoms that affect day-to-day living. The recipes in this book are based off of recommendations of the Autoimmune Protocol, or AIP. I was interested in approach because this is supported by scientific evidence. I will admit that not everything I am finding out has been something that I am happy or excited by, but I am reading up on the details and understanding the reasoning behind the recommendations. One of the hardest things that I find out in this book is that a category of foods that should be avoided by someone with an autoimmune disease are members of the nightshade family. Yes, that essentially means all my favorite foods that I was so proud to eat as good healthy foods; tomatoes, tomatillos, ground cherries, bell peppers, hot peppers and potatoes. Heavy sigh. Again, I am educating myself on the facts, and using that understanding to work on the plan. The book does a great job of breaking down information and giving the read a way to work out meal plan options. There is also a very valuable section in this book called The AIP Kitchen which provides a bullet list of ingredients that will be encountered though out the book. I found this list a bit overwhelming, but I know that I am going to use this cookbook as an ongoing resource, so I am working room into my food budget to add some of the more unique ingredients over time. You will find plenty of recipe options that a beginner can work with. Enjoy going though this beautifully photographed cookbook to find a few recipes to start with as you start your journey with this new diet. Some of the first recipes that I started with were; Grain-Free & Nut-Free Granola, Pork-Veggie Breakfast Skillet, and my current favorite which I will be making as a on-going staple Garlic Refrigerator Pickles. Each recipe includes a nice intro about why this is a going AIP option. For example the Garlic Refrigerator Pickles page explains that most store brands of pickles contain spices that are removed for your diet during the elimination phase of the autoimmune protocol. Their recipe, using fresh herbs, is an even better tasting option and it literally takes about 15 minutes to make. Most recipe pages also include helpful tips that are pulled out in a “note” graphic that make it easy to learn more helpful information. This book will be a great resource in your library as you find ways to help your body function better in a natural way. I highly recommend this book for yourself, or someone who you care about as a gift.

    The cookbook begins with a brief explanation of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and provides lists of foods to eat and foods to avoid as well as a sample meal plan for 1 week with shopping list. It also provides some very nice guidance regarding how long to follow the protocol and how to reintroduce foods once you’re ready (handling reintroductions correctly can be tricky and is crucial to your success).

It also provides some very nice guidance regarding how long to follow the protocol and how to reintroduce foods once you’re ready (handling reintroductions correctly can be tricky and is crucial to your success). If you’re not used to eating a restricted diet, some of the ingredients may seem exotic, but most of them shouldn’t be too hard to find. I can find coconut aminos, arrowroot flour, and cassava flour in some of my local grocery stores, but if you can’t find them locally, you can always order them online. The recipes I’ve reviewed are clearly written with helpful notes and include cook time, prep time, and yield. Many also have attractive photographs, though this isn’t a figure-intensive cookbook. The recipes do not include nutritional data if that is important to you (I have to count carbs for my diabetes, and that may be tricky with some of these recipes.) So, how do the recipes taste? Not too bad, especially if you are used to following a restricted diet. Many of these recipes probably wouldn't be very appealing to anyone who doesn’t have a compelling reason to want to follow a nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory diet, but for anyone with chronic health problems, it might be worth giving this a try. The first recipe I tried was the Carrot Cake Smoothie, and while it was not quite the treat the author promised, it wasn’t bad—I would make it again. Next I tried the Express Cauliflower “Oatmeal” for breakfast, and that was actually much better than I expected, although I had to add extra coconut milk while it was cooking to keep it from burning. My third experiment was the Cream of Parsnip Soup, which was creamy, easy to prepare, and felt like a reasonably good comfort food, though a bit bland for my taste (I added some fresh herbs and was happier with the result, but might also increase the amount of bacon next time I make it). The back matter includes additional resources for autoimmune health and an index that includes both ingredients and recipe names. My overall impression is that while some of the recipes looked a bit complicated or required somewhat unusual ingredients, this cookbook offers some nice choices for those wanting to try the AIP to treat autoimmune disease or other chronic illnesses, or for those living with multiple food intolerances. I was provided an ARC through NetGalley that I volunteered to review. Because I have not seen the final published version, I cannot comment on the final editing and formatting. The ARC was well-written and neatly formatted; I don’t recall noticing any proofreading errors.

Plot: Healing your body through food sounds simple and easy but can quickly turn to daunting, confusing and overwhelming. Healing through dietary restrictions is not as simple as one thinks it is and by the time we have figured this out, we are already in too deeply to abandon the project without results. Author Sophie Van Tiggelen has a feasible solution written in a comfortable, practical and delicious format complete with gorgeous food photography to inspire the appetite. The Autoimmune Protocol or AIP diet is very user-friendly once a few key features have been explained and is exactly what our autoimmune-imbalanced bodies need in this sugary world. Complete with detailed recipes, shopping lists and more, this cookbook will soon be the only cookbook on your shelf. Likes/Dislikes: Oftentimes, the hardest part of starting any new diet is finding something that both looks and sounds good enough to make you go out and buy the ingredients to cook the dish. With such yummy items as Fluffy Plantain Pancakes and Delectable Cherry Crumble, finding a recipe won't be as hard as we thought. The autoimmune protocol diet is very similar to the Anti-inflammatory and Paleo diets so readers familiar with those will be able to swing into this book with the most ease. Rating: G-all ages.

Next comes staples and then recipes broken out into chapters such as Breakfast, Soups & Salads, etc. I am not entirely sold on the idea of the Autoimmune Protocol; it says it is all backed up by science, but this book did not provide enough proof for me. There is a list of additional books and resources at the end that may help others. Also, many of the recipes used hard to find ingredients, but maybe once someone committed to this style of eating, they would be more inclined to find sources for those ingredients. I did like some of the recipes, including: “Cheesy” Sauce, Creamy Cilantro Dressing, Express Cauliflower “Oatmeal,” Turmeric-Ginger Soup, Lemongrass Chicken Soup, and Coleslaw (with apple!). Overall, I think this book was well thought out and well written, but did not sell me on the Autoimmune Protocol. I did however find a new favorite Coleslaw recipe and several other recipes that I enjoyed.

Furthermore, when I'm already weak and foggy, I don't have tons of time or energy to prep and cook meals. The recipes seemed very complicated to me. I also was surprised by the lack of nutrition and macros information for the recipes. I found the font very difficult to read. But there were some nice recipes here, along with some lovely pictures. Just not enough to warrant my wanting to buy the book. I have voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received through Netgalley.

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher --- The Autoimmune Protocol Diet is gaining attention as the top health-supportive diet for the 50 million people suffering from autoimmune conditions; however living the AIP way can feel confusing and overwhelming. You may have no idea where to start and are overwhelmed by the seemingly endless list of foods to avoid and strict guidelines to adhere to -- the reality is that I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

You may have no idea where to start and are overwhelmed by the seemingly endless list of foods to avoid and strict guidelines to adhere to -- the reality is that you can do the AIP diet easily (and deliciously!) Written by popular AIP blogger, Sophie Van Tiggelen, of A Squirrel in the Kitchen, The Autoimmune Protocol Made Simple Cookbook distills the complicated science and diet tenets found in other AIP books down to most practical, actionable, "need-to-know" information in the form of diet guidelines, 100 recipes, shopping lists, as well as simple tools and strategies for doing the AIP diet successfully. This book makes AIP clear and understandable with short, succinct explanations of the different AIP approaches and 100 AIP-compliant recipes that are inventive and delicious -- and don't make you feel like you are eating on a restricted diet. . I cannot evaluate the medical “science” behind this is good or along the line of DR. GOOGLE as I now very little about the condition. Interesting read with man recipes that anyone could eat – not something I would buy for myself of the library unless directly requested

    The Autoimmune Protocol Made Simple Cookbook by Sophie Van Tiggelen jumped downward to a 3 star rating as I read in the book's introduction (written by Sarah Ballantyne PhD) autoimmune disease is caused by a poor lifestyle. The introduction also states genetics accounted for about 1/3 of the risk factor for developing autoimmune disease. According to my rheumatologist, there are risk factors for developing Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) but most of the risk factors are not fully vetted as causing the The Autoimmune Protocol Made Simple Cookbook by Sophie Van Tiggelen jumped downward to a 3 star rating as I read in the book's introduction (written by Sarah Ballantyne PhD) autoimmune disease is caused by a poor lifestyle.

According to my rheumatologist, there are risk factors for developing Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) but most of the risk factors are not fully vetted as causing the actual disease. My rheumatologist did state there is a genetic predisposition to developing RA. I suspect the same could be written for other asutoimmune disorders. The author has written the same concerning developing autoimmune disease. She also writes other causes for developing an autoimmune disease include: environmental factors, a poor diet and poor lifestyle. I do take umbrage with the last two statements as no one knows the exact cause of autoimmune disease. There are theories but nothing concrete. On a positive note I did like how she included nut-free options such as Tiger-Nut flour for people (like me) who are allergic to nuts. Recommend with caveats given. Review written after downloading a galley from NetGalley.

    I did the AIP diet a couple years ago with very good results (inflammation went down, lost weight, felt great). Lately, I've gained several pounds back and I ate poorly over the holidays, so I felt like it would be good for me to follow the AIP diet again for 30 days to get back on track. This cookbook was a good refresher on the basics of AIP.

This cookbook was a good refresher on the basics of AIP. For beginners to the Autoimmune Protocol, I would suggest reading another book first, such as The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, that gives a more complete explanation of the diet. Once you're familiar with the details, this cookbook is a good reference and reminder. Many of the recipes were too hard / complicated for me, but I am not much of a cook. I did mark several of the recipes to try, especially the ones in the "Homemade Basics and Staples" section. If any one of these recipes are good (such as homemade AIP "ranch" dressing), it will be worth it. I wish all of the recipes had pictures.

    I was pleased to read this book for review. Thank you to the publisher and to Net Galley for the opportunity. I have recently contracted a Autoimmune disease that has upended my entire existence. As I am a vegan I approach things very holistically and I refuse to take medications of any kind. I prefer to heal through food and this cookbook has made a HUGE difference for me in how I treat my disease holistically.

I was pleased to find many easy to follow vegetable recipes and ignored the meat recipes as I am vegan. There is much to like here and the nutrition information is priceless. The authors suggest very wisely to stay away from nightshade vegetables which increase symptoms in autoimmune patients. Much is here about approaching a autoimmune disease from a food standpoint and this book is a great source for all patients who are seeking further information on how to treat themselves. All in all a valuable read with excellent advice and great new recipes. A wonderful cookbook I highly recommend. Very well done. This. book you will want to purchase in hardback form to keep in your autoimmune library

    Tiggelen has a good, motivational, informative blog detailing her own experience with an autoimmune condition, and though she is no doctor, she has valuable advice there. This cookbook, however, is a disappointment for me. Unless you are rich, jobless, have all the time in the world to prepare meals just for yourself, in an industrial-sized huge kitchen, and are prepared to make food to last for 4-5 days which you can 're-heat' later, and like eating coconut milk/ oil/ butter/ cream/ sauce /flou Tiggelen has a good, motivational, informative blog detailing her own experience with an autoimmune condition, and though she is no doctor, she has valuable advice there.

It gave me a headache and just reading through it increased my stress levels. Why or how can any one spend so much time making delicacies for just one person?!!! Food with similar ingredients over and over again, having the same taste again and again. It was ridiculous to read through it, frankly. (Edit: I guess meal plans are a fad right now, because other cookbooks on netgalley are promoting once-a-week cooking too. I don't care, it's ridiculous.) The bland pictures (in white backdrop) make the dishes look like food served in hospitals. The white tiles and table tops in Tiggelen's apparently large white kitchen (as evidenced in her photograph at the end of the book) make it look like a hospital too. Also, I am no doctor either, but apple cider vinegar and lemon inflames the gut. And palm oil is inflammatory too. AIP diet is not just about hashimoto thyroiditis (what Tiggelen has), it is a broad spectrum and this book would probably cause flares in people with lupus (SLE) symptoms. The recipes (like the apple cake) are on her website so why should anyone buy this book instead of copy-pasting/ printing out recipes from the blog?

    I was sent a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is actually quite what is says it is - recipes made simple to fit the autoimmune illnesses (I guess). The point is, the recipes are really simple and basic, only tweaked and transformed to fit the dietary needs and restriction of the autoimmune disease. I will definitely make some of the desserts in this book - that was my favourite section -, especially the tapioca pudding and the honey turmeric gummies!

My complaints are with the lack of photography of the book. There are pictures, but not enough. I do not necessarily want a picture for each recipe (although that would be fantastic), but at least a few more pictures - and better pictures, because some of the pictures were quite lacking in composition and making the food the center of attention. But I loved the picture of the gummies!

    I chose to read this book even if I do not have an autoimmune disease because I am always looking for new recipes, and here I found some that were easy and innovative enough. I have to admit that I found the author explanation of the way a new diet should improve the life of people suffering from AID seemed to me too simplistic anyway. Ho deciso di leggere questo libro anche se non ho una malattia autoimmune perché mi piace scoprire nuove ricette e qui ne ho trovate alcune sia facili che nuove.

Ho deciso di leggere questo libro anche se non ho una malattia autoimmune perché mi piace scoprire nuove ricette e qui ne ho trovate alcune sia facili che nuove. Devo comunque ammettere che la visione dell'autrice di come la sua dieta possa migliorare in maniera quasi miracolosa la vita dei malati di malattie autoimmuni, mi é parsa piuttosto semplicistica. THANKS NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!

    I received and ARC from NetGalley to see if I would be interested in the Autoimmune Protocol. I have an immune deficiency and sometimes have autoimmune symptoms. Every thing you read next, is all my own opinion. The book does a good job of explain the Protocol and why you should do it. I learned a lot just reading it. As a cook book, it gave me no desire to actually try the majority of the recipes. There weren't enough photos and most of them didn't seem all that appetizing.

There was about three or dour recipes that looked and/or sounded like they would be helpful and taste good so I may try those. For people who are already on this protocol, this may just be the book for myself, I didn't feel entice to follow the Protocol.

    I have read almost every book and cookbook on AIP and I really enjoyed this one! The beginning pages of explaining what AIP is all about is my favorite part of the book. For those who are skeptics I can speak from experience that AIP is life changing and my husband’s health has vastly improved from following AIP. I love that this book has pages dedicated to reintroduction and how to handle expectations as well as flares. I found several recipes that I want to try out!
