Citrus Cabbage Slaw (AIP, SCD)

Asparagus & Garlic Scape Soup (AIP, SCD)

Nothing says spring more than a vibrant green asparagus and garlic scape soup! Use your choice of greens – kale, spinach, chard, or even mustard or dandelion greens – and make it creamy with either cauliflower or white sweet potato, depending on your preference and dietary need.

Chicken & Mushroom Stew with Celery Root & Marjoram (AIP)

Celery root has recently become one of my favorite vegetables… and until not long ago, it was completely foreign to me. Ditto for several other ingredients in this delicious chicken & mushroom stew. Leeks? Bring them on! Shiitake mushrooms? Get in my tummy now! And marjoram? Oh
