I have 11 favorite AIP packaged foods for you today.
You will heal. I will help.
I learned many things while working on The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: a Travel and Convenience Snack Guide. One major thing I learned is that traveling while trying to heal the gut and/or adhere to any special dietary restrictions is hard because there just simply are not that many high-quality traveling and convenience snacks. From the guide, though, today I put together 6 AIP travel snacks for those who need to follow the Autoimmune Protocol.
You can learn all about AIP HERE, but essentially, those who need to follow the protocol avoid grains (+pseudo-grains), gluten, dairy, legumes, processed vegetable oils, processed food chemicals and ingredients, added sugars, sugar alcohols, nonnutritive sweeteners, nuts and nut oils (coconut is an exception), seeds and seed oils, nightshades and spices derived from them, spices derived from seeds, eggs, alcohol, coffee and high-glycemic-load foods.

Note: all information found below for each product can be found in the guide (except for the links and easy filters which are only available via the paid version.)
The guide contains almost 200 products, and I know of nothing currently like it on the market. I hope you love it!

I have made this AIP Bread recipe probably 500 times.
I have perfected it, and we now make it at our house about 2-3 times per week.
This bread recipe is so good that even those who do not need to follow AIP or other “diet” will fall in love with it. (Just ask my toddler, husband, babysitter….)
The recipe is gluten free, dairy free, grain free, soy free, corn free, egg free, Paleo, AIP and free from all additives and preservatives. The recipe is also low FODMAP (but not FODMAP free), since per slice there is very little coconut flour.
My AIP Bread contains 6 ingredients tops! You can choose if you do or don’t want 2 of them.
What’s even better? By using the exact same 6 ingredients you can make this bread in two different ways:
Your taste buds.
Guys, AIP is hard, but I have always set out to prove that no matter your circumstance or situation, you can still eat, heal and thrive all while loving each and every moment.
In other words, you can totally have your bread and eat it, too.
Get the AIP Bread recipe now, and enjoy your first few
batches pieces all weekend long!
p.s. Need some buns for your burger?! Yes. Those, too!

A post shared by Sarah Kay Hoffman paleoishmama (@sarahkayhoffman) on
I began a (mostly) strict, 30 days AIP on March 14, 2016. This means that today is day 31, so I wanted to share with you what I learned during 30-days strict AIP.
I am on day 19 of my 30-days strict AIP, so I thought I’d pop in today to share with you how I’m doing on the autoimmune protocol and doctor’s appointment check-in that happened yesterday.
It is serving me very well, and if you recall, the main reason I was doing it was not because of symptomatic gut issues, but instead because of lingering skin issues.
I am learning that, while I have been feeling phenomenal doing AIP and the skin issues seem to be healing, the real underlying cause for the skin issues are due to hormones (remember, I destroyed my hormones). So even though AIP as a stand alone might assist in healing, it has been (and will continue to be) other things I’m doing that are making the real difference. Once I really get a grip on the skin issue, I’m planning to write a post to share everything I did to heal it.
My cravings for all the chocolate and peanut butter and cakey-carby are completely in check because of the AIP bread recipe I perfected.
I don’t eat “breakfast foods” for breakfast and “dinner foods” for dinner. I just eat according to cravings, hunger levels and what I can feel my body needs at any given moment. Here is a list of my favorite AIP-approved foods that I tend to eat most currently. (Click HERE to save this list for later.)
I have “cheated” two times only. One time I had 2 ounces of Vodka; the other time 4 ounces of wine. I discussed alcohol at length with my doctor, and for me, the jury is still out, but more than likely I will need to stick with 2 ounces or less per week for quite some time still. Sad. I know.
My intentions are to finish these 30 days, and then decide how I’ll move forward.
I’ll just give it to you straight from his notes, my plan for moving forward and finding even more healing on this journey:
Note: these are just some of the main new things. I still have several things I do and take daily to support the healing process. At some point, I’m hoping to just dedicate an entire page on my blog to all supplements, etc. I take/have taken/am encouraged to take.
Most of the things we are focusing on now are directed towards my skin, “adrenal fatigue” and managing/helping all the current stress I presently feel/have.
My doctor commented several times that when it comes to understanding how to heal core issues and/or how to not have a relapse, I get it, and I am focusing in all the right areas. Where he supports me 100% is directing me to the appropriate supplements and giving me ideas and confirmation for things I need to do in my life to help myself.
After my appointment with him, things seemed to be even clearer, and I know that if I can stick to the plan and get myself re-adjusted physically and emotionally, my healing efforts will continue to be strong as ever.
