Living with food restrictions can feel, well, restricting… especially when it comes to snacks. For those of us who are trying to lessen or eliminate chronic inflammation symptoms through the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), it can sometimes seem daunting to figure out what kind of munchy thing to eat when you’re feeling a little peckish. After all, lunches and dinners can be pretty much “normal” in terms of eating a meat, and a salad or veggies (free of nightshades, of course). Breakfasts are certainly a little more challenging if you’re looking for grain-free, egg-free breakfasts, but with a little practice, you can get used to eating dinner for breakfast. But what do you do if you’re looking for AIP snacks that go beyond a piece of fruit or cut-up veggies?
No worries – I’ve got you covered with both recipes and *gasp* store-bought, AIP-compliant snacking options. Recently, the awesome people at Barefoot Provisions provided me with some AIP and allergen-friendly goodies from their store, and I’ve included some of those in amongst this list of AIP-friendly snacks.

I’ve been secretly busy behind the scenes, and I’m quite happy that I can finally say what it is that I’ve been up to! Yep! It’s another eBook, and this one is called Grain-Free Simple Sweets!
I’ve partnered with recipe master (mistress? whatever…), Ashley Thomas of My Heart Beets. And if you don’t already know, this girl knows her way around the kitchen! Ashley is awesome at whipping together ‘fancy’ dishes (you MUST check out Ashley’s butter chicken, or heck, any of her Indian food dishes), but she can also do simple, yet very delicious. Together, Ashley and I have put together over 30 recipes for simple sweet treats that you can make at home – all made with five ingredients or less!
If you’re new to the Paleo grain-free lifestyle, you’ll know how hard it can be to make the adjustment and leave behind the processed food and sweets. When the craving hits, sometimes you kind of wish you had a little something… but what? Thankfully, this ebook is just the answer, as you can enjoy refined-sugar-free sweets that are really easy to make and help indulge that craving, but in a much healthier, guilt-free way.
I’m a big fan of John Oliver’s commentaries, as evidenced by this previous post about John Oliver vs. the food industry. And while it may have been more appropriate to show a picture of John Oliver, it was more amusing to me to use the photo I used, and you’ll understand when you watch this video about John Oliver & his thoughts about sugar.
As someone with a design background, I have a special love for infographics (as evidenced by the ones I’ve made about food intolerance symptoms, healthy skin, and nutrients for ADHD), so when this one about the newest superfoods was brought to my attention, I figured I had to share.
Some of these super foods are new enough that they haven’t yet come across my radar and/or I haven’t seen them available locally, but others like manuka honey and maca root, I’ve definitely seen and even sampled. I even have a recipe for Paleo cereal that uses a bit of maca! Worth a try, in my opinion! Have you tried any of these newest superfoods? If so, how did you eat them? And by all means, if you have a recipe, please share in the comments! See the infographic…
