I have not mentioned this before, on this post, but, I have multiple sclerosis which is an autoimmune disease. I have been well aware of the importance of diet in contending with a chronic illness of this nature. AIP Recipes can help manage this condition.
However, there are many diets, published on the Internet. Many, such as the examples included here, are AIP Diets. There are a number of dietary protocols to help with these health conditions.
- The Wahls Protocol
- The Atkins Diet
- Swank Diet
- Gold Coast Cure
I, personally, have followed the Wahls Protocol for many months with great success.
But, I must remind you, that no diet should be undertaken without first consulting your medical practitioner.
You know that they say food is the best medicine. And, from my experience on the Wahls Protocol, I am forced to agree.
When you begin to uderstand how your body responds to food and how that food provides the essential nutrients for your mitochondria to operate at an optimal level. You appreciate the mportance of having a GOOD diet.
How to eat AIP on a budget
If you go to a health food store, be prepared to pay top dollar. Health foods can be very expensive but, a healthy diet is NOT.
Alyssa from Flaxseeds and Fairytales offer some very sound advice on how you can stay in budget when shopping for your healthy foods.
Nightshade Free AIP Curry
Nightshades are fruit and vegetables of the Solanaceae family. Some people believe that these nightshades can aggravate conditions like arthritis.
Medical science does not support this belief but if you feel the need to avoid nightshades they include white potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant or aubergine and bell peppers.
Even if you’re not sensitive to nightshades, this is a healthy, nutritious curry of broccoli, carrot, butternut squash and chicken. Yummy!
AIP + Paleo Banana Breakfast Cookies
Banana has to be the most underrated fruit in your fruit bowl. Bananas are a great source of potassium and vitamin B6.
Bananas are also easy to digest and so versatile for the adventurous cook.
The AIP Elimination Phase
While I have used the Wahls Protocol in the past. My determination has wavered and I need to get back on track. So, I am undertaking my own elimination phase with a Whole30 session.
Any AIP diet needs to eliminate the foods that you are sensitive to. Most methods eliminate all foods that might cause a reaction and then a progressive reintroduction of food until you find a stable diet.
Sweet Potato and Beef Stew
Sweet potato is currently my favourite vegetable. And I am finding more and more recipes that can present this amazing vegetable to a hungry audience.
If you are doing a Whole30 session, you will love this recipe. Sweet potato beef and herbs, manna from heaven.
Mongolian Chicken AIP Recipes
Don’t you just love it? No, not the chicken, the name! Mongolian chicken just sounds delicious and exotic. The Mongols were fierce horsemen and they needed to be well fed to keep up their energy on long empire-building trips.
The rich sauce of ginger, garlic and coconut aminos really sets this dish apart. A truly special Asian flavour to make a special stand-out meal for your hungry family.
Chicken Yakitori AIP Recipes
This chicken Yakitori also known as Japanese chicken skewers is a tasty Whole30 recipe your family will love and keep coming back for more.
It also wraps up my foray into exciting AIP recipes to tantalise your taste buds. An autoimmune diet doesn’t need to be bland or boring as these recipes prove beyond all doubt.
Furthermore, your mitochondria will love these nutritious dishes.
