Make sure to check the very bottom of this post for a chance to win your very own copy of Nourish!

I was so excited to come home from San Diego last week to find this stunning cookbook on my doorstep, from Rachael Bryant from the popular website, Meatified! If only this cookbook had been around when I did my own Autoimmune Protocol experiment! As someone who was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at the age of 12, I'm so grateful to know that awareness is spreading for just how healing the autoimmune protocol diet can be. Food is incredibly powerful, and this cookbook makes it easy to heal your body with food that still tastes amazing. This book isn't about losing weight, or any sort of fad diet, it's about truly healing your body from the inside out.

Rachael starts out the book by talking about the huge increase in autoimmunity, an explanation of leaky gut, and great information on how to heal your body. Nourish is a fantastic resource, and has over 120 amazing recipes and absolutely gorgeous pictures. This book is perfect for anyone looking to heal their body naturally, with wholesome & delicious food!

This book makes the perfect gift for anyone! Click HERE to order on Amazon.

Now, onto the sneak peek recipe from Nourish! I made this dip the other day, and it was so good! I suggest making a double batch 😉

Creamy Artichoke Dip

Creamy Artichoke Dip With Spinach
Yields 1
Write a review
  1. • 1 tbsp (15 ml) coconut or avocado oil
  2. • 1/3 cup (45 g) diced onion
  3. • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. • 1 cup (120 g) peeled summer squash
  5. • ¾ cup Chicken Broth (page 225)
  6. • 6 oz (170 g) drained jarred artichoke hearts
  7. • 2 tbsp (8 g) nutritional yeast
  8. • ½ tsp ground mace
  9. • 6 oz (170 g) package of frozen spinach, thawed
  1. SOFTEN: Add the oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add the diced onion and garlic to the pan while you peel and chop the summer squash. Cut the summer squash into pieces that are the same size as the diced onion, then add to the pan and stir to coat with the oil. Cook until the squash is tender, stirring occasionally so the squash doesn't brown, about 10 minutes.
  2. BLEND: Transfer the softened vegetables to a blender and add the chicken broth. Gently squeeze the artichoke hearts to release any excess water before you weigh them out. Add the artichoke hearts, nutritional yeast and mace to the blender – process until you have a thick, smooth, "creamy" sauce.
  3. SIMMER: Pour the sauce back into the saucepan and return to the stove top at a low heat. Drain the spinach and squeeze out any excess water, then chop finely. Stir the frozen spinach into the sauce and simmer until the dip is warmed through. The dip probably won't need any additional salt because of the artichoke hearts, but taste now and add any extra salt if you wish. Serve the dip warm and enjoy. Try pairing it with Pita Wedges (page 222).

    I would love to win this book because AIP is healing more than medicine ever did but I'm running low on recipes and meal ideas and know that meatified is AMAZING at cooking and came up with some stellar recipes.

  15. I'm a fan of her blog and would love to get my hands on this beautiful cookbook 🙂

    I want to feel good all the time: spiritually, emotionally and physically. Paleo eating in my household is a challenge since I'm the only one and I'm hoping that thru my efforts and example i can also improve the health of others. Another reason is i love the title. It's inspiring in its definition. To "provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition" and to "keep (a feeling or belief) in one's mind, typically, for a long time." And that's my goal, to keep this dietary mindset for a long time… I would definitely love a long life…

    I started a Paleo lifestyle less than a month ago. Give noticed changes in my skin and body. Yay. But I get discouraged mostly in the kitchen. I'm the only one in my friend circle and family doing this. A great book with amazing recipes would help keep me going. Thx.

    I would love to win this book because I'm having a very hard time figuring out what to eat. I feel like I only have a few options and I'm a terrible cook. It would make my healing journey a lot easier.
    Thank you!

    I would love to win this cookbook because I have PCOS (PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome) which has caused me to be overweight since the age of 9. I currently pregnant with my 3rd miracle baby and have Gestational Diabetes (for the third time). I would love to start eating Paleo after I have the baby, but I don't know where to start. Paleo has helped other PCOSers I know, get it under control as well as get ther borderline diabetes under control as well.
    My husband has just started his flight career and not many know that you can make barely over 20,000 during the first handful of years with his school debt adding up to early 80,000. He is the sole provider as I a stay at home mom, so we don't have extra income to purchase any cookbooks to help me with my health problems. Thank you so much!!!

    I love being paleo, cooking and sharing via social media how fun it can be. One of my core desires feelings is nourish – to be nourished and to nourish others every day. So when I saw the cover of this book I knew I needed it. Also I'm coming off of a non-paleo bender and would love the extra incentive to hop back on (besides the amazing feeling in my gut I have when I'm eating paleo).

    I would love to win this book because I'm new to paleo (although not gluten free) and really looking to immerse myself into everyone's gorgeous work. I started a blog focusing on how to incorporate the paleo lifestyle as a busy college student and would love to have another book to consult and cook from. Thanks!

    My husband and I have been paleo for almost two years, but his brother has always been resistant to the concept. Recently, some health issues have forced him to reevaluate his good habits. His wife is at a loss for how to cook and I know this book would be a step in the right direction for them!

  37. Thanks for the great blog post, and also for the chance to win your book!

    I would love to win a copy and cook my way through the book. My husband and I have been on a Paleo/Weston A. Price health journey for about three years now, but are both still working on healing ourselves. Though we have seen great improvements with our diet changes, I am still battling with hormonal problems and he is struggling with digestion. I would love for my husband and I to take our health to the next level with this book!

    Cheers to good health!


  38. I'd love this book because even though I'm flaring right now, Paleo has done remarkable things for my Crohn's. And I could definitely stand to stick with the autoimmune protocol more often than I do 🙂
