Autoimmune protocol - or AIP for short - is a stricter than Paleo diet style that excludes certain food groups and includes nutritionally dense, gut healing, hormone balancing and immune system regulating foods. If you are thinking of trying AIP, here's a list of 30 delicious entrées recipes for you to try!
Hippocrates, a Greek physician from 400. B.C. said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
But, some food can be medicine to one person, it can be a poison to another. So depending on your health condition, certain food can alleviate certain symptoms or it can also irritate you.
This very concept is the premise of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), which is a stricter diet style of Paleo, that includes nutritionally dense, gut healing, hormone balancing and immune system regulating foods.
In addition to foods NOT ALLOWED in Paleo, like grains, legumes, dairy, processed foods and alike, AIP DOES NOT ALLOW eggs, nightshades, any sweeteners, nuts, seeds, and certain spices from nuts and seeds as well. The Paleo Mom's Autoimmune Protocol explains it further.
AIP seems to be very successful for many people who suffer from various diseases that are caused by inflammation, which is modulated by the immune system. Luckily, even though the list of approved ingredients seems limited, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the taste.
To help you get started, here are 30 delicious Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) recipes to rock your palate.
