Cabbage Recipes, But Make It AIP

A lot of healing diets emphasize eating more vegetables. With my Very Western Diet upbringing, it was difficult not to make meat the star of every meal of every day forever. It still is, since this is a safe space for honesty.

But I love, LOVE brassicas. All of them. Brussels, kale, collards, broccoli, cauliflower. Allum. Obsessed. So I wanted to share some recipes that with minor tweaks can be AIP compliant. Cabbage is the star in all of these.

Alternatively, you can make an AIP pesto and have it ready to pour over the cabbage

Some notes:

Every place where you omit black pepper, consider adding galangal. It’s like a semi-spicy ginger. It will not be black pepper. It will not be nightshade hot peppers. But it is better than the nothing this diet allows.

I hope this helps you get an idea of how to add more vegetables to your diet, particularly cabbage, which is an awesome vegetable for digestion.
