Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), an Update and Workshop

DL-photo

3 months AIP

Most folks know about my long journey to healing, which is always continuing. A few years ago I started AIP (Autoimmune Paleo Protocol) to eliminate triggers and promote healing. It is not something that may be right for everyone, but it certainly has been a huge help for me. On my personal blog Cake Cooks Gluten-free, I added an update to my journey as well as a link to an update from a year ago when I guest blogged on Paleo Parents. (awesome AIP recipe with that one!)

AIP Workshop

Eliminating any large food group is very hard. Because its such a hard process, one of things that we talk a lot about it support. Support and access is exactly why we opened Kickshaws Downtown Market. This coming month, we are introducing a new AIP Freezer Meal Workshop. It will be a great opportunity to meet others who are on the same journey as you, get support and information and learn about meal prep for your new AIP lifestyle. The first workshop will be July 19th, 2pm-4pm. The cost will be $25 and include AIP Approved spice blends that you can use during the workshop. To sign up, please shoot us an email (kickshawsdowntown@gmail.com) so we can get you set up with a shopping list. If you bring your shopping list to Kickshaws, any purchases made for the workshop will be 10% off. Registration is limited to 8 people (space is limited!) so please register as soon as possible.

  1. Please hold another of these workshops soon!!!! I recently figured out that my struggles since 2008 are due to an autoimmune disease as well as my 12 year old daughter being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (Aug this yr). I feel as if I have hit a brick wall and don’t know if I can do this without a team! My autoimmune issues flair up the worst in the winter and I am slipping into a huge hole quickly. I truly believe we can control her T1D if we eat to heal, but I can barely drum up the energy to figure out a quick unhealthy meal most days:( HELP!!!!

    • Deanna,
      I can totally sympathize. Sometimes I feel like its the chicken and the egg debate. If I stuck to a rigid diet, exercise and sleep routine I could keep the flares at bay… but I am so exhausted I don’t feel like it 🙁 Having people who understand that is so helpful, and we truly do.
      We will definitely have another AIP workshop as well as other whole foods workshops coming up. In the coming year we are also setting up lots of support programming to help folks navigate these difficulties. Please do stay in touch and stop in the shop any time if you need some help or just to vent!
