Ever since I signed up for culinary school 14 years ago, I’ve dreamt of publishing my recipes. Now it’s actually happened. I’ve just manifested one of my longest held dreams.Despite chronic illness and fatigue and ongoing, intensive treatments: I did it!! I’m officially published in an actual cookbook: The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook!
Welcome to where the magic happens: the Hope Heal Kitchen!
Food isn’t just calories and nourishment for me, it’s my primary medicine, and considering how much I’ve healed over the years, it’s a powerful one! By extension, my kitchen isn’t just a kitchen. It’s the place from which I actively heal myself. So when I was asked to do an AIP Kitchen Tour guest post for Autoimmune Paleo, my first thought was “Of course! Folks should see my kitchen!”
This recipe is: Paleo + AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) + Whole30 + low carb/ketogenic + vegan friendly + coconut free
My Thyme Scented Creamy Fennel + Asparagus Soup represents one of the many ways I like to celebrate asparagus’s arrival and the joy of Spring’s bounty.
By time asparagus spears are hitting the farmer’s markets here in Seattle, the weather has warmed and the days have grown longer. We’ve officially entered what I call “The Last Season For Soup.” Winter is all about hearty stews. Come Summer, I’ll be loath to have anything hot, but this time of year a bowlful of something warm and light hits the spot.
When Kerry Jefferies of EmotionalAutoimmunity.com asked if I was willing to do an interview, my immediate answer was “yes.” The emotional aspects of living with and healing chronic illness is something that I’m passionately invested in, both in my personal healing journey, and in how I express my experience with others.
