Do You know what the Autoimmune Protocol is? Hearthy Foods can Help

The AIP diet is a protocol designed for those with autoimmune disease to lower inflammation and nourish the body! There are certain foods that cause bloating, digestive problems, and stomach aches. One of the ways to identify these problems is to eat thing from one single ingredient to identify the cause.  
The AIP diet stands for Autoimmune Protocol, and it’s designed for those with autoimmune disease to reduce inflammation to allow their bodies the opportunity to heal. It removes inflammatory foods.

After the elimination period, foods are reintroduced one by one to see if the body has healed and can tolerate them again. When we created our flours, we inadvertantly discovered that Hearthy Flours were ideal for AIP diets. Each flour is nothing but 100%. 



AIP diet in essence about gut health.  The food of yesterday is not the same as the food of today in terms of how it is being process.  The advancement in food technology has cause problems like allergies, cancers, and severe reactions. 
Knowing which foods to eat and which foods to avoid on the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is only half of the battle. Here is short list of food that is recommended:
  • All animal proteins (excluding eggs)
  • All vegetables (excluding nightshades)
  • Fruits in moderation
  • Healthy fats (avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, animal fats, etc.)
  • Bone broth Collagen
  • Grain-free baking flours (Cassava, Apple, Banana, Coconut, etc.)
 Here is a short list of foods that should Avoid on the AIP DIET :
  •  no grains
  • no dairy
  • no legumes
  • no Nightshade vegetables and spices (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, all peppers, red spices)
  • no nuts and seeds based spices
  • no Eggs
  • no Soy
  • no Thickeners, gums, and food additives
  • no Poor quality seed oils

Many continue to follow an AIP template even after their autoimmune symptoms have reduced. This can be a preventative measure to stop symptoms from flaring again, or it may just be that you feel better eating more of an AIP template.

Regardless of how long you follow it, AIP is meant to be a short-term healing solution and not a long-term way of life.
