Here’s part 2 of mine and Sophie’s chat about anxiety, panic attacks and how we manage them today (if you missed part 1 you can check that out here). This week, Sophie and I, along with Tara from Paleo Cajun Lady and Kate from Healing Family Eats recorded an episode of The Autoimmune Connection dedicated to living with anxiety. It was really fun to record and if you check it out I hope you enjoy watching! Continue Reading

Sophie and Kirstie Talk….

 

Hashimoto_anxiety_1

 

 

This is a rather special little side project that I’ve been working on with fellow Hashi’s kid, Sophie, from A Squirrel in the Kitchen. We both guested on The Autoimmune Connection (the Youtube channel from fellow AIPer Christina at A Clean Plate) recently, and bonded over our mutual feelings of anxiety! Comparing my story with Sophie’s, I think they each offer a very different perspective, and I hope our stories are helpful in someway. I know we both found this experience a cathartic one. There will be an episode of The Autoimmune Connection on anxiety coming up soon, so, if you fancy it, check that out!     Continue Reading

Thanks so much for your time Bre’anna – and huge congratulations on the publication of your first cookbook He Won’t Know it’s Paleo! It is a beautiful book with gorgeous, inspiring recipes that, as you say, “bridges the gap between a standard diet and the paleo Autoimmune Protocol”, and in such a delicious way! For those of you that don’t know, the name of Bre’anna’s blog came about after Bre’anna started preparing paleo meals for her husband and family – and it was 6 months before she told her husband!

The Great Sydney AIP Picnic!

Yesterday, Sunday 1st March, was our first public gathering of the AIP Supper Club! It started as a beautiful evening back in November with Jo from Joanna Frankham Health Coaching  and Rory, The Paleo PI. We shared (AIP compliant!) food, stories and information and realised what a lovely thing it is to pass time in the company of people who get who you are, what you are doing and why you are doing it. And we decided we wanted to share this experience with other AIP peeps!
