It doesn’t affect the price you pay, and I whole-heartedly believe that this bundle is a great deal and would be helpful to you, especially if you’re interested in learning more about eating a grain-free, paleo diet, or following the Autoimmune Protocol.
Every once in a while, a great deal comes along for some excellent reading, recipes and meal plans, and when that happens I feel obligated to share! This time around, it’s The Primal Life Kit – 49 Paleo & Primal Products + 14 discounts for only $39.
If you’ve read some of my past posts, you’ll know that I personally follow the Autoimmune Paleo protocol (AIP), in an effort to reduce my own chronic inflammation issues, and if you too are interested in using a dietary approach for chronic issues such as eczema, psoriasis, arthritis and more, it would be worth purchasing this bundle for just the 4 books about autoimmune and inflammation, and the 3 research papers by Dr. Loren Cordain – these 7 items have a value of over $150, never mind the rest of the Primal Life Kit!
As I’ve said before, the diet I personally follow is designed to reduce inflammation and help with chronic issues. This diet of course is the Autoimmune Protocol or AIP for short. It cuts out eggs, dairy, nuts, seeds and nightshades and while at first glance it can seem highly restrictive, there are still plenty of foods that you can eat. Real foods like meat, vegetables and fruit are plenty, and when you eat ingredients over food products, your health with certainly benefit. (If you’re following AIP, I highly recommend getting a copy of the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, available as either a lovely hardcover book or instant gratification download as an eBook). It’s recommended that you limit your sweets while following AIP as high amounts of sugar can exacerbate inflammatory conditions, but this AIP cookie recipe doesn’t use any added sugar. Still, I wouldn’t make a meal out of them, despite how delicious they are.
Yesterday, The Real Food Guide’s Pinterest board was featured on The Dr. Oz show in their National Healthy Pinterest Page survey. (Ironically, I’m actually not from the US, so it was great to be included anyway!)
If you’re in Canada and want to see the clip from yesterday’s Dr. Oz Show where my Pinterest page was featured, skip on to the last 3 minutes of the episode called “New Rules to Declutter Your Life and Transform Your Health”, you can view it for the next week on CTV.ca. (Fair warning: you’ll be subjected to many many commercials before finally getting to the clip).
Thanks to everyone who voted for my Pinterest page!
The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is an eating plan to help deal with inflammation & chronic illness – it’s great that there’s a dietary approach to help lessen symptoms of many common conditions. I’ve personally found it very successful in addressing my various health issues including eczema, leaky gut, food intolerances and more, but it does involve the elimination of common inflammatory foods, such as grains, eggs, dairy, nuts, seeds & seed-spices, and nightshades (e.g. tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, potatoes). So, when it comes to a food like pizza, you’ve generally got layers of NOPE when you’re eating according to the AIP, since you can’t do a grain-based crust, no tomato sauce, or cheese.
