My Inspiration for The Hashimoto’s AIP Cookbook
As many of you already know, I have suffered through my own health issues, which was the catalyst for working on my first cookbook, The 30-Minute Thyroid Cookbook, and now this second book, The Hashimoto’s AIP Cookbook.
If you have been following along with me, you know that I believe in a holistic approach to managing Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism, combining medical nutrition therapy with proper holistic health counseling interventions.
With my focus on autoimmune conditions, I was so excited to bring this option to the millions of men and women living with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism.
A Chef & Dietitian Collaboration
However, after working on The 30-Minute Thyroid Cookbook and incorporating a few AIP recipes there, I knew I was going to need more help when diving into a complete AIP diet cookbook.
That is where my husband, Chef Phil, came into the picture. I certainly know nutrition, but Phil knows how to make food taste good.
The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol is a program that follows a dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, seed-free, soy-free, corn-free, night-shade free diet for at least 30-days before embarking on the reintroduction phase of the program.
That is why I needed a CHEF to help me make sure everything still tasted good.
What is the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol?
The paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) is a proven approach to wellness, which includes both dietary and holistic lifestyle modifications, but for the purpose of this book, we will be focusing primarily on the dietary component of this protocol.
By eliminating or restricting the most potentially inflammatory foods from the diet, the AIP protocol allows the body to reduce the constant inflammatory response, promote gut healing, and rest and recover.
After the recovery period, foods are reintroduced one at a time to assess for any negative responses. This allows individuals to get a clear picture of what their specific dietary triggers are, without the need to restrict all major food groups for the long term.
The Paleo diet, from which the AIP protocol is derived, involves a way of eating that may have been similar to that of early hunters and gatherers, before the advent of farming practices. It focuses on a diet of meat, fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
The stricter AIP dietary protocol (which eliminates nuts and seeds) focuses on consuming a wide variety of anti-inflammatory foods while removing the following categories:
- Nightshade vegetables
- Nuts and seeds
- Added sugar
- Food additives, artificial sweeteners, processed vegetable oils
Remember, the goal of the protocol is not to keep those foods eliminated forever. By eliminating these foods for a select period of time, you are allowing the body to heal and prepare for the reintroduction phase of the protocol.
It’s also important to remember the long-term payoff for this temporary inconvenience: By following this protocol, it is believed that AIP can help to repair leaky gut, altered intestinal permeability, and promote healing from a wide range of autoimmune conditions including Hashimoto’s.
If the AIP protocol sounds overwhelming, have no fear. I have spelled out everything you need to know in The Hashimoto’s AIP Cookbook and I offer 1:1 support and guidance in walking through the protocol in my private practice.
