Today, I'm doing a review of the much anticipated AIP Indian Fusion Cookbook by Indira Pulliadath MS, NTP. The book includes 114 flavorful AIP-friendly Indian-inspired recipes.
Indira started using the AIP diet in 2015 to manage her rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and found the diet to be extremely helpful. Since then, Indira has become a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner and AIP Certified Coach. Indira's blog, Cook 2 Nourish, provides the AIP community with unique and exciting recipes you can't find anywhere else.

I found this book to be a breath of fresh air in regards to AIP cooking. Over the past couple of years, I've been doing AIP cooking and baking. During that time I've become accustomed to using many of the same ingredients and same recipes.
Switching gears a bit and cooking from AIP Indian Fusion has been a great way to shake things up and try something a little off the beaten path. I've discovered new ingredients and new ways to use ingredients I've been using all along. It's a lot of fun.
Indian food, like many cuisines, often relies on nightshades for many of its dishes. This means making Indian-inspired recipes on AIP is HARD! I'm saying this to emphasize how awesome it is to have an entire cookbook full of delicious AIP-compliant Indian dishes!

What I Love About This AIP Cookbook
This book is gorgeous and packed with amazing recipes. Some things I love about it:
- In the front of the book, there's an area explaining AIP and foods to avoid. There's also a section detailing food reintroductions.
- I love that there's a table with ingredients used throughout the book. This table explains what to look for in each ingredient (types/quality/appearance) and where to find it.
- Many of the recipes are relatively simple to make and use just a handful of ingredients.
- Some of the recipes use ingredients that I've never used before (kind of exciting) but can easily find.
- The back of the book includes 4 weeks of sample meal plans and menus for special occasions.
- Many of the recipes provide suggestions for reintroductions.
Whether you're new to AIP and wanting to explore or you've been on it for a while, I definitely recommend checking it out.
