AI Awareness – Celiac Disease

Hello AIP Community!

I’m not one to reinvent the wheel, here’s our post about Celiac Disease from our Instagram account. 🙂

Anti-Inflammatory help – FISH OIL

Image may contain: drink

All good things about this fish oil by Apex Energetics.  It keeps your Omega 3s and 6s in balance and greatly reduces inflammation.  I set it up next to the rubber ducky unicorn, because to me, it’s equally as magical!

When my inflammation was super high I took 2 tablespoons in the morning, and 2 before bed.  Now that things are better, I take 1 tablespoon in the morning right after I drink my 2 cups of freshly juiced organic celery.

 

Fitness Friday – Let’s Walk

Hello Friends, the message is simple, take it back to basics and walk a bit.  Up and down a hallway, around the house, around the neighborhood, at a park, on the beach, at the mall–don’t worry about distance, set a goal to walk for time.  Breathe deeply and enjoy!

We’re going camping – what can we eat?

The good news is that my little one eats gluten and dairy free (she’s Paleo-ish) and Tim and I eat AIP, so this little post will help both our Baby Steppers and our Cold Turkey AIP’rs !

Here’s what I bought ~

Produce (Organic is best if your budget allows it.  If not, you can find herbacide and pesticide free produce at Farmer’s Markets that are presumably a healthier choice)   Celery Hearts, Baby Carrots, mangoes, green & red apples, apricots, 5# of various Squash.

Meats – 1 rack of Pork Ribs, 3# of Chicken Breasts, 1 package turkey breakfast sausage, organic turkey hot dogs (Paleo – paprika makes it NOT AIP)

AIP treats – Emmy’s coconut cookies

Smores for the kiddos – (These are NOT AIP, and if you’re staying strict paleo, just have the dark chocolate)  Gluten & Dairy free graham crackers, gluten free organic marshmallows, Dark Chocolate 70% or higher

Paleo  snacks – Justin’s single serving almond butter, EPIC Bars, Turkey sticks (have paprika so they’re not AIP)  Grainless Granola you can eat it dry or put it in some almond milk!

AIP Snacks – Plantain chips – Terra chips are cooked in coconut Oil, Yah!  Tiger Nuts, NO they’re not nuts, they’re little tubers!  boom!  Organic Raisins.

Aside from water, we packed dark chocolate Almond Milk  & almond milk for Ash – single servings and they do not require refrigeration.

Fired Up the Grill and cooked up the chicken.  Seasoned with Olive Oil, Garlic Salt & sea salt.  Delicious!Displaying camping2.jpg

Heat that oven to 375.  Line a glass Pyrex with parchment paper, season the underside of the ribs with sea salt & garlic salt, turn over, put the same seasoning on top and coat in Coconut aminos.  Bake for 60 minutes.  it is Divine!Displaying camping6.jpg

It took Ashleigh and me 1 hour to hit 2 stores, and then I spent 1 hour and 30 minutes getting everything ready for our trip – 3 days of food prepped and ready to go in 1 1/2 hours.

Enjoy these little tips for clean camping!
