An autoimmune disorder is when your body attacks itself. The AIP diet limits certain foods to reduce inflammation so that the body can heal. This is good for your body, but it can also take a toll on your creativity in the kitchen.
Although the AIP diet requires a fair amount of planning ahead to do successfully, relief from symptoms makes it worth the effort.
And think of all the foods you CAN eat: a large array of fruit and vegetables, all kinds of meat and fish, some root-based flour alternatives, and even a few sweeteners for special occasions.
There are many easy, nourishing AIP friendly meals that make cooking and mealtime fun. Here are five easy meals for a week’s worth of dinners.
