Autoimmune disease is a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells. At BodySite, we are all about developing creative, digital solutions for health. For those who struggle with autoimmune disease, flareups, or inflammation, we have built a plan that offers creative solutions to preparing, cooking, and succeeding on the AIP protocol.
For Katrina, the Content Management Specialist at BodySite, an allergen-free diet hits close to home. “With my mom being both gluten-intolerant and diagnosed with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney disease over 2 years ago, I had to learn about restrictive diets and foods that prevented inflammation. We, as a family, chose that food would not be the boss of her, or us”, stated Katrina. Building the AIP diet gave us a glimpse into the lives of those that struggle with autoimmune disease. We don’t want FOOD to be the boss of those with autoimmune disease, either.
Autoimmune disease affects an estimated 50 million Americans. There are more than 100 confirmed autoimmune diseases, including Celiac, Crohn’s, Lyme, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and MS. Although autoimmune disease cannot be cured, it can go into remission. An AIP protocol helps to heal the intestines and reduce inflammation. Our 28-day plan includes 35+ entrees and 15+ breakfast recipes combined with 28 healthy living tips.
We want to support the AIP journey as best as possible. Included on the plan are AIP tips, FAQ’s, a dining out guide, “yes” and “no” food cheat sheets (pictured below), pantry staples, shopping lists and more!
“Self care is not self indulgence. Self care is self respect.”
The best thing one can do is to plan ahead. Here are some gadgets that will help with meal prepping on the AIP Protocol. Having high-powered tools in the kitchen will make recipes and meal prep a little simpler:
The BodySite AIP protocol is meant to be used in conjunction with the advice of a provider.
