Elimination Diet, AIP


As of late I haven’t been feeling too well. I get a very hopeless feeling when my diet is healthy, I’m still active and I still don’t feel ok. I feel fatigued, swollen, my HS flares up like crazy. I get angry, confused and to an extent, jealous of my all the people I know that can eat whatever they want, that eat crap, and still feel great.

But then I take a deep breath…. an very looooonnngg, deeeeepppp breath and remember that feeling those things is counter productive and not the kind of person I am, or want to be. So I say fuck it. Let’s just do the damn thing and go on an all out elimination diet.

It’s like Whole30 without nuts, all the good seasonings, COFFEE or nightshades… or eggs. FREAKING EGGS! So in other words, until this bare minimum diet gets my symptoms under control I will be a very unhappy person. Day 3 and no results yet, except for a little burst of energy. Baby steps.

I’m still navigating this whole thing… I need to add more organ meat in to my diet. I was talking to my mom about liver pate today. I might go that route and I need to get some more bone broth brewing. My goal is to stay on this diet until my symptoms go in remission and then add in food one at a time. I will probably start with wine, follow with coffee and then eggs. Just sayin’!

Here’s what I’ve been eating up to now, I’ll write up another post once I’m back in tip top shape and give a full AIP recap! I’m going to make this elimination diet my bitch (and share it with all of you!).

Back at it, #autoimmunepaleo #eliminationdiet  I don't know how long it will last, I guess until I feel better. It's really hard to give up the little things you enjoy when you already have so many food restrictions! Ugh. Sometimes it just boggles my mind that some people can eat whatever they want, others, like me who already eat so healthy, are further restricted. Oh well. I'm going to be positive! I'm going to make this #AIP work for me!  #breakfast broccoli, zucchini, plantain cooked in coconut oil. With 4 pieces pork rinds & green tea.

Last night I read up on @thepaleomom AIP posts. Love how she breaks it down & explains the science behind what our bodies are doing. She also goes in to a very detailed list of what to eat & what not to, and why. We do a lot of chicken at home, but that's a no no on for folks with AI, so I sliced up some eye of round roast in to steaks for a quick lunch. Cooked in with salt & pepper in coconut oil and served it over a heap of asparagus & lettuce with lime & evoo! Yum!  #autoimmunepaleo #healwithfood  #paleo #glutenfree #glutenfreelife #healthy #paleolifestyle #healthyfoodporn #primal #instagood #instafood #foodblog #foodporn #healthyfood #grainfree #dairyfree #sugarfree #aip #homechef #foodfeed #wholefoods #cleaneating #castawaykitchen #feedfeed

I was ever so excited when I found out that Tumeric was AIP allowed! Other than being delish, it's got tons of anti inflammatory properties. Browned some eye of round steaks in my @lodgecastiron pot with Coconut oil with sea salt & oregano then added coconut milk & tumeric and let it simmer for 30 minutes. Served with roasted vegetable medley of carrots, onion, asparagus & broccoli with coconut oil & sea salt. Yum!!! That tumeric/coconut sauce was good enough to drink out of the pot  #lodgecastiron

    You can do it! You will do it! All the foods above look so good. 🙂

    1. thank you for the encouragement! I just started reading The Hidden Plague by Tara Grant and it’s really explaining all the science behind autoimmune issues. I’m very hopeful!

        Sounds like a very interesting and good book. Glad you found it. Glad you feel hopeful — it is all we need to keep going. 🙂
