We might be tempted into intimidation at the idea of putting together AIP snacks. Even if we’ve been Paleo for a while, avoiding old staples in the pursuit of autoimmune health (no hard-boiled eggs, nuts or potato chips for a little while!) might be intimidating.

But the truth is, there’s a whole wide and wonderful world of AIP snacking for us to enjoy! My basic formula goes like this:...

Health is not just about the foods on our plates, but also how we live. Activity, stress management, sleep and connection are essential inputs to our health. And, the Paleo template embraces all of them. Unfortunately, it’s much easier to completely revamp what we eat and join a local CrossFit box than it is to regularly get enough sleep. Which is why I created Go To Bed: 14 Easy Steps to...

I know that sleep can seem like an enigmatic and difficult part of health. It doesn’t have to be! With a series of small tweaks, we can easily improve our sleep quality. Tweak #1: Set a baseline!

One of the real wake-up-call moments for me regarding sleep came after I began tracking my sleep. I saw that even though I was sleeping for a long time, my sleep quality was low. It led me to...

Rutabaga are a starchy root vegetable that originated as a cross between the turnip and cabbage (though interestingly, this cross seems to have happened naturally in the wild! Specifically, in Sweden in the 1600s). When I refer to rutabaga in a recipe, I am generally talking about the the purple-coated, round white fleshy root vegetable, but the greens are also edible (so don’t neglect them if...

This post is the first in a new series all about the mindset shifts that can help us heal on the AIP. I felt it was time to tackle mindset because I keep hearing one pervasive myth about this healing diet: that it’s too hard.

Are there challenges associated with the Autoimmune Protocol? Sure! But I don’t think those challenges are any more challenging than following a standard Paleo, Primal,...

A collection of research articles focus on the effects of a simple sugar that could be causing a lot of trouble: fructose. Certainly, scientific studies support that low-to-moderate fructose intake is healthful—it’s only high intake of fructose (like the typical intake of the Standard American Diet) that causes problems. While, most of us following a Paleo diet automatically fall into this...

New science confirms that the biggest influence on how your immune system works is your environment--not your genetics.

A recent paper published in one of the most prestigious scientific journals did a really neat study to evaluate the effects of genes versus environment on our immune systems. The researches measured over 200 different aspects of the immune system and compared them in...

Previously, we’ve looked at food ingredients that sound scary but aren’t, and that we shouldn’t fear just because they have unfamiliar names. On the flip side, there are a number of common chemicals we’re exposed to on a daily basis that we’re told are safe, but that might actually be toxic to the human body. In fact, hundreds of cosmetics, personal care products, and household cleaners sold...

When it comes to adopting a healthier lifestyle, our pantry can be our greatest weapon—or our greatest opponent.

Paleo dry goods have come a long way over the last few years, and it’s now easier than ever to replace your...
