Beef Roast with Carrots and Turnips (Paleo, AIP, Low FODMAP)

For those of you that don’t know me, I am a few months into my own personal healing journey. I have some underlying autoimmune conditions that I have been working diligently to reverse. With that being said, I am currently following a strict Autoimmune Protocol while also eating as low FODMAP as possible.

If this sounds like gibberish to you, no worries! A short explanation of the Autoimmune protocol is basically avoiding foods that are common allergens and irritants to the gut. To learn more about AIP check out THIS link

AIP Avoid list:

  • Dairy
  • Grains
  • Nuts/Seeds
  • Legumes/Beans
  • Refined sugar and alternative sweeteners (stevia, xylitol, etc)
  • Eggs
  • Coffee
  • Alcohol
  • NSAID’s
  • Processed foods
  • Nightshades (peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, spices like paprika, cumin, chili powder, etc.)
  • Chocolate
  • Vegetable oils

While low FODMAP is essentially limiting foods that are high in fructose, lactose, fructans, galactans and polyols.

High FODMAP foods to avoid: (this is a short list that basically includes many of the above restrictions in addition to the following) to see a complete list a guide check out THIS link

  • garlic
  • onions
  • artichoke
  • asparagus
  • beetroot
  • cauliflower
  • celery (one stalk permitted)
  • leeks
  • mushrooms
  • savoy cabbage
  • shallots
  • apples
  • ripe avocados
  • Apricots
  • Blackberries
  • Cherries
  • Currants
  • Dates
  • Grapefruit
  • Lychee
  • Mango
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Persimmon
  • Plums
  • Pomegranate
  • Prunes
  • Raisins
  • Tinned fruit in apple / pear juice
  • Watermelon
  • Honey
  • Coconut water

As you can see, the lists are pretty limited! But that does not mean I have been eating basic, boring foods. I continue to vary my diet as much as possible and have been enjoying each meal as much as I would have without the additional restrictions.

Without any more anticipation, here is the Beef Roast recipe that I made for dinner tonight:

Ingredients:

2-4 lb. grassed beef chuck roast

4-6 medium carrots, roughly chopped

1 large purple turnip, chopped into 1/2 inch chunks

1/2 cup bone broth

1 tsp. parsley

1/2 tsp. turmeric

1/4 tsp. sea salt

freshly ground black peppercorn to taste

Instructions:

-Chop carrots and turnip and place in the bottom of a 7-QT crockpot

-Add meat on top of carrots and turnip, then add bone broth and seasonings

-Secure lid and cook on low for 10 hours

-Enjoy!
