So next week marks the Chinese New Year. And if you're on an AIP or paleo diet and thought you were going to have to go off the rails for one night and order from your local takeaway or restaurant, then let me tell you this. You can totally celebrate without compromising your diet.
To mark the occasion I've gathered up 21 amazing AIP-compliant recipes that have Chinese influences. From side dishes, stir-fries, aromatic pork recipes and curries, it's all here. There are even a few party nibbles and cookies too.

Interested in more paleo takeout foods? I regularly cook from Russ Crandall's Paleo Takeout book - I bought it for a paleo blogging friend for Christmas, too, so they could make the recipes we all love. Many of the recipes are easily adapted to AIP, too. Check it out here.
