This salad goes really well with my Turmeric Grilled Shrimp recipe. That recipe isn’t 100% strict AIP. You’ll need to be able to handle a few introductions but the salad stands alone. It would be delicious with any grilled meat. We’ve been making this salad every time we grill outside this summer.

Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps

These Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps are a healthy easy one pot dinner dish. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, nut, egg, soy and shellfish free) and suits the autoimmune protocol (AIP) and paleo diets.

The autoimmune protocol diet (or paleo diet) can feel quite restrictive so I’m looking for different recipes that are still easy but taste great and will appeal to my whole family. This Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wrap recipe is a one-pot meal that is really healthy. I really don’t feel like I’m missing out when I’m eating this dish. It’s satisfying for not just myself but the rest of my non-AIP family.

I used marsala wine and ground black pepper in the recipe which are not strict AIP. If wine doesn’t agree with you then just omit it and double the fish sauce. It won’t have exactly the same flavor but it will still taste great.

I intended on only taking a week or two off while I was on vacation this month. However, it turned into an entire month off. After we returned from vacation, my son and I ended up with a flu bug and then my camera broke. Actually it didn’t break on it’s own, my son helped. Tyler is super curious and tall. I didn’t realize that he was suddenly tall enough to reach the kitchen counter. He grabbed the camera strap, pulled and the entire camera came crashing down on the floor. Luckily it missed Tyler but the camera was a goner. I’m finally back on track with my new camera.

Since I had some down time, I’ve been working on new recipes and an ecookbook. If you want more information, check out my One Week of AIP post. I also created a new ebook, AIP Snack Ideas, for people that sign up for my mailing list.
