This blog is dedicated to my very non-paleo and gluten-loving husband, Chris, who didn’t know he was eating paleo for the first 6 months I cooked this way. Now that I’ve come clean, I can always trust Chris to give me often-too-honest reviews of my recipes. My criteria for posting is this: If Chris doesn’t approve, I won’t post it here.

As for me, I’m a wife, momma of three and a Christian. I found out in the spring of 2013 I also have Celiac’s disease and Hashimoto’s thyroid disease. I went gluten free and it helped tremendously, but I still had some nagging symptoms. I had heard paleo is great for autoimmune issues, so I began eating paleo after Thanksgiving of that same year. Paleo helped even more, although I continued to have little flare-ups. And then, (as if my diet wasn’t limited enough) after 6 months on paleo, I heard about the autoimmune protocol (AIP) and hesitantly decided to give it a try.

The autoimmune protocol has been very helpful, but it’s no secret that eating gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, seed-free, nightshade-free, egg-free and chocolate-free (is there anything left? You bet!) can be pretty boring.

My goal with this blog is to help paleo and (especially) AIP eaters enjoy good food while on an elimination diet. For more AIP recipes, check out my cookbook, He Won’t Know It’s Paleo: 100+ Autoimmune Protocol Recipes to Create with Love and Share with Pride.
