New to AIP? Want to know where to start?
Unfortunately, there's a lot of conflicting information out there on what AIP actually is. And to make it even more complicated, there are different versions of AIP, depending on who you talk to.
The AIP that I followed and it helped heal my psoriasis patches (25 years of psoriasis healed in just over a year with AIP - incredible!) is the one presented by Sarah Ballantyne, The Paleo Mom.
Sarah has an 'AIP-certified' list of blogs that adhere to the autoimmune protocol as set out in her book The Paleo Approach, so you'll be safe in the knowledge that all these bloggers are singing from the same sheet, so to speak. You'll find bloggers in the list that have or are healing autoimmune diseases like Crohn's, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis and more. Check out the Paleo Mom Approved AIP Blogger's List.
AIP Ebooks, Books and Healing Resources
The great thing about ebooks is that they're instant. You don't have to start waiting for them to arrive in the post, and they're often cheaper than actual books, too. You can download them in seconds, meaning that you can get cooking straight away.
General AIP books - great for beginners or those just starting to find their feet on the autoimmune protocol...
SPICE - Jo Romero
A collection of over 90 recipes that use AIP compliant herbs and spices to create a wide variety of dishes, including some takeaway favourites that you can now enjoy on AIP - such as Lamb Dopiaza (with no tomatoes or nightshade/seed spices!), Lemon Chicken, Naan Breads and more. Cooked from SPICE? Then share on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #AIPSpice and I'll share any I see.
