Sometimes when I am feeling sorry for myself I sit around and think about which foods I wish I could eat most. I would be just fine without processed foods or grains for the rest of my life, but there are some things I really do miss. In order of importance: eggs, butter, booze, everything else 🙁
Don’t get me wrong, it is possible to have a delicious and varied diet while following the AIP…but moments of self pity happen to the best of us 😉
I have not been very successful with reintroductions on the AIP and I mostly still eat “strict elimination AIP” even though I have been following the diet for almost 3 years! I can now eat seed based spices, an occasional bowl of white rice (or sushi!!!) and a glass of wine once in a blue moon. Nightshades, eggs, butter (any dairy products for that matter), nuts and coffee are still rough on my tummy and cause inflammation in my joints.
If I could choose any food to be able to successfully add to my diet it would be: EGGS!!!!! Eggs are an essential ingredient for so many recipes and are such an easy meal! They make baking so much easier and are also an essential ingredient for mayonnaise.
When I don’t have time to cook (which happens quite frequently as a new mama) one of my go to meals is canned tuna or salmon. Without mayonnaise though, most canned fish tastes a little dry and boring. This AIP alioli recipe revolutionized my experience of canned tuna, and opened the door for all kinds of exciting things, like chicken/ salad, “cheese” dip and creamy salad dressings.

With no further ado…. my AIP Alioli recipe!
Update! I have started using organic refined coconut oil for this recipe and it brings it to a whole new fluffy level. I would recommend trying it if you don’t like the strong taste of olive oil! Make sure that you use only expeller pressed organic refined coconut oil because otherwise there might be chemical processes used in production that make it not a healthy choice. This is my fave refined coconut oil!
- Add all ingredients to a high speed blender I have this one
- Blend on high until alioli is smooth and fluffy

I hope you enjoy this creamy goodness as much as I do!
