time to celebrate!
This is going to be the quickest recipe ever written! I made this salad today, for our first official AIP picnic here in Sydney, and I thought it turned out so well I couldn’t wait to get it written up and on the blog! (Well that, and I didn’t want to forget what I’d put in it 😉 ) Continue Reading
Meat and 3 Veg Meatballs
I love making meatballs, they are so easy to batch cook and great to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And these little babies are my new favourites! Not only are they a delicious way to get extra veg into your meal, they also pack a great anti-inflammatory punch from turmeric, garlic and ginger.
I’ve been following the Autoimmune Protocol for about 5 months now (you can read about my early experiences here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here!) and boy, have I learnt a lot along the way (more about that in a later post…)! Continue Reading
The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook
Thanks to everyone that took part in my little competition to win Angie Alt’s fabulous new book – and guide to life! – The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook. If you missed my interview with Angie you can catch up here. Continue Reading
One thing I hear very often is “I want to start the Auto-Immune Protocol but I don’t know where to start!” and I remember the horror I felt when I read about the protocol for the first time. Seriously, what sane person cuts out cheese and wine and chocolate?! Well, I guess the kind of person who has had enough of feeling like crap and doesn’t want to just keep increasing the medication whilst getting more and more ill. So that means me – and quite possibly you! Continue Reading
Roasted pork with fennel salt
End of week 9 – well, well, well! Not too much has changed this week….after my adventure with almonds last week I decided to lay of trying to reintroduce any more nuts for the time being and instead decided to try adding back seed based spices. I tried fennel seeds at the beginning of the week and cumin and cardamom last night. All seemed to go well with the fennel seeds but I don’t feel that great today after the cumin and cardamom. Not sure if it’s related or not, but I think I’ll steer clear of cumin and cardamom for a few days til I feel better and then try them again! Continue Reading
Well hello sunshine!
The end of week 7 of my autoimmune protocol journey and the end of the weekend – and what a beautiful weekend it has been! Such gorgeous weather and I think I managed to get my vitamin D levels topped up just in time for another whole week of rain!
This is how good this lifestyle feels…..
Wow……I’ve made it! 6 weeks was my initial goal and I’ve got there! We had a couple of hiccups in the first couple of weeks which I spoke about here, but despite that I definitely feel the benefits of cleaning up my diet. Continue Reading
AIP rosemary and lemon roast lamb chops with roast sweet potato and kale chips
I’m into week 6 of AIP now, who would have thought it? Certainly not me! I remember first reading about AIP a couple of years ago and thinking “oh no, something that restrictive is definitely not for me”. I’d just been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and I was still at the stage of thinking that thyroxine was going to put right everything that had been wrong. Then some more time passed and I experimented with cutting out sugar, cutting out gluten, cutting out processed foods and noticed I was definitely feeling better. Then I started reading about AIP again and the more it started to make sense to me… Continue Reading
Is that light….at the end of the tunnel? (Jas Poole Photos)
I’m at the start of week 4 of this AIP plan I’ve been following…. Ummm yes….about that…… Continue Reading
