If you are unfortunate enough to have an autoimmune disease, then you would be well advised to look carefully at the range of autoimmune friendly recipes that you can use in your autoimmune firmdly diet.

Autoimmune Friendly Recipes
I was lucky enough to be introduced to The Wahls Protocol by a friendly lady on Twitter. This is an AIP diet that I firmly believe has made a huge difference in managing this chronic illness.

Autoimmune diseases are conditions where the body cannot differentiate its own healthy proteins, from the proteins of foreign invaders. The body then attacks its own tissue, causing a hypersensitivity reaction known as an “autoimmune response.” This self-tissue attack can go on for months or years before an autoimmune disease fully develops, causing damage to cells, tissues, and/or organs.
The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) focuses on reducing inflammation in the gut that causes an autoimmune response. The AIP diet works to calm and decrease inflammation, thereby lessening the disease’s symptoms and ideally putting it into remission.
Coconut Free AIP Desserts
It can be hard finding coconut-free AIP dessert recipes! (AIP is a diet that helps many people with autoimmune conditions.)
You’re already cutting out gluten, dairy, nut flours, eggs, nut butters…
So if you happen to be bored or allergic to coconut as well, then it can seem like there’s really nothing you can eat when it comes to desserts!
Furthermore, desserts are good for you. Feeling good about yourself is one of the most important factors you need to contend with autoimmune disease.

Autoimmune Friendly Recipes for Strawberry Waffles
I am aware that this is basically the least sexy name possible for a recipe, I think it sounds like something you would be served at a hospital as a means to hide some sort of treatment. My husband Mark said this sounds like some sort of superhero food.
