But honestly, the first 30 days are pretty restrictive and I'm mostly just winging it. I'm a pretty decent cook so I just whip up pretty basic dishes, whatever sounds good.

Thanks Happy. I will get this one too. I am a pretty good cook, expect I have so many food allergies. And I am cooking for a picky 17 years old boy, who has lots of food allergies too. So sometimes our choices are so limited. So, I figured from a few books I should have quite a few good choices to cook from. Hedging my bet.

I'm winging it too mostly, but also have The Auto Immune Paleo Cookbook. I hit the internet too especially Pinterest, which has landed me on Paleo Mom's website.

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

I love Paleo Mom. Also, Wellness Mama has some good info.

@brooklynAnn... just be aware that some websites, such as PaleoLeap, have recipes that are Paleo but not necessarily following the 30-day Autoimmune Protocol so you have to adjust recipes accordingly. If you are not doing the strict A/I diet, those recipes are just fine.

PaleoLeap does have a 30-day AIP diet called "PaleoRestart" but you have to pay for it. Frankly, I find plenty of stuff online for free without having to pay for it!

Blossom... how are you feeling today? I hope those pesky headaches are gone and that you're not as fatigued!

Today is a much better day. Thanks for asking AND my new coffee alternative came in and I HIGHLY recommend this product. Fantastic flavor, rich and mellow.

I got Teeccino Chicory Herbal Tea Dandelion Mocha.

Has Carob, Chicory, Dadelion, Dates, a touch of almond, fig and cocoa powder....

Is cocoa powder on AIP? As I am writing this I vaguely remember someone saying it's out.... ????

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

Any thoughts on what happened tonight? We were out of olive oil, so cooked our fish in butter. H had steak and I cooked my mushrooms in his pan after deglazing the pan with a small amount of wine and *something* is making me nauseous. Butter, wine?

Thanks Happy and BL for the books and info. I have ordered the books and started my grocery list. Will start on Saturday, when my husband is home.

Nothing there should really cause a bad feeling unless the product was bad.

Butter has such a high smoke point that I dislike cooking fish in it. Same goes for Olive Oil really. Try ghee or coconut oil. You'll get an incredible nice outside crust using something that doesn't burn right away, or alternatively just smokes away into the ether before doing its thing

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

I "almost" cooked that fish in coconut oil. I do have some, but the flavor is a bit heavy, though I did sautee some blueberries in it when I got a little hungry before bed

I've wondered about ghee.

I broke down today and drank coffee. Full leaded. I was feeling so bad this afternoon and I knew it was "the" thing to make me feel better. True to form it worked. Not sure what to think about that. Maybe it's an occasional treat, we'll see. This is really an interesting journey.

I'm not digesting the new foods fully. I will also probably have to add back either sour cream or keifer.

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

I have psoriatic arthritis and the Paleo Diet did wonders for me. I lost 60lbs and joint pain went away so I dropped all medications. Now if I eat something not Paleo it is like playing Russian Roulette where there is a chance I get joint pain from what I am eating.

Just stick with it and give it time.

There are many resources to follow:

chow | Sites | Stalkerville (chow | Sites | Stalkerville)

Mark's Daily Apple

These are great sites that can give you a bunch of ideas. Marks daily apple also has a really busy forum to bounce stuff off people who are going through the same thing.

Keep it up and good luck!!!!

Darwin... are you able to contact an administrator over there on Marks? It won't accept my "random answer" on the registration page. I've tried several times.

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

Ok.... Well... I finally know for sure which AI besides Fibro I'm dealing with. Late last night and this morning I just did not have what I needed to eat AIP. So after only two non-compliant AIP meals, a *distinct* butterfly rash appeared on my face this morning, thus Lupus.

I'm going to do cooking this weekend to help me stay the course this weekend. Stocking up tonight.

Will call my doc and let him know.

Ugh.

Bummer. Blossom, any chance it could be rosacea and not lupus? Or have you had other testing done that leads towards lupus? I only ask because rosacea/lupus is the first thing the docs considered when all this mess started for me. I was convinced it was lupus, only to find that is was rosacea! Those two present very similarly, and I just read an article showing that current testing for the two can yield very misleading results. Check this out:

Lupus or Rosacea?

Yeah, I have found that "bulk" cooking is the easiest way for me to eat clean. I will pan fry 3-4 strip steaks at a time and then slice them for meals and quick snacks, bake an entire tray of frozen fish, broil a jumbo package of chicken thighs, etc. Same thing with veggies -- saute two great big pans of veggies and sweet potatoes. That way, when I'm hungry the food is right there waiting.

Do you know specifically what you ate that you suspect might be the culprit? Keep a food log so you can pinpoint things. Even record little things like spices or flavorings which can contain hidden triggers.

Stay the course!

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

I had cheese toast.

Yea, I had antibody tests done that had narrowed me to Sjogrens or Lupus.

I had done *some* bulk, but of course realize I have to increase the size of the *bulk.*

I am bummed, but I know the fight will come out in me and kick Lupie's ass.

Right now he's pissing me off.
