What about my healing diet?

Please remember that even though they are healthier than the standard version, these are all treats and should not be a major part of your diet! Also, keep in mind that this is not specifically a paleo or autoimmune protocol (AIP) cookbook. Stevia is suggested as a sweetener and nuts and chocolate are called for in some of the recipes. The good news is that the recipes are all quite flexible and Jessica gives you multiple options whenever possible to adapt them to your personal needs.

This is a throw-back recipe to my childhood and always reminds me of my mother. She used to make us this after a long, hot day of horseback riding. It was the perfect mid-day pick-me-up. I love the flavor of fresh mint alongside the sweet fruit.


  • 3 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1/23/4 cup of seltzer water
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 36 leaves of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp. cold-soluble grass-fed gelatin
  • 510 drops of liquid stevia (or sweetener of your choice)


  1. Put the watermelon and seltzer water in a high-powered blender and blend until combined.
  2. Add stevia, gelatin, and frozen strawberries and blend until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately.
