(Make the Whole30 the easiest ever with personalized, customizable meal plans!)

It’s that time of year again. It’s January, it’s cold – hi, snow! – and I’m thinking about comfort food. All I crave at this time of year is a creamy soup, a silky stew, a mound of fluffy mashed vegetables or the kind of one pot meal that takes me back to the time when somebody else was cooking a meal for me made with love, grandma style.

As always, I’m following the Autoimmune Protocol. And after a holiday with some much-enjoyed treats and a few glasses of bubbles here and there, I’m taking it easy on myself by getting back to basics with plenty of nutrient dense, healing foods. Plenty of bone broth, lots of vegetables and nothing too stressful in the kitchen. So everything I’m making and eating now is also Whole30 compliant because I’m giving my system a break from added sugar, too. But that doesn’t mean I’m eating boring, tasteless food. Far from it!

To show you how I’m still enjoying the joy of winter comfort foods AND following an AIP Whole30, here’s a collection of recipes that fit the bill: AIP Whole30 comfort foods that are as nourishing as they are delicious!
