After learning about the AIP Diet in last week’s blog post, we are talking about AIP Meal Planning this week. This takes following the AIP Diet to the next level by planning out your meals. The importance of AIP Meal Planning is to deflame the gut. By creating a healthy gut for ourselves, which acts as our body’s second brain, we can begin to have a healthy body. Study KETO and Paleo meal planning for recipes and ideas, but remember that the 45 Day AIP Diet is even more restrictive.

Food to Eat on the AIP Diet

By following the AIP Diet for 45 days, you take away ALL possible inflammatory producers for 45 days. After 45 days, test foods back into your diet and if something you add back into your diet causes a symptom, then stop eating that food. Here are some foods that you can eat while following the AIP Diet:

  • Meat and Fish (preferably not factory raised)
  • Vegetables (but not Nightshade Vegetables; such as tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, and potatoes)
  • Fruit (in small quantities)
  • Avocado, Olive, and Coconut Oil
  • Fresh non-seed herbs (such as basil, mint, and oregano)
  • Honey or Maple Syrup (but only to be used occasionally, in small doses)
  • For a total list, refer to our E-Book!
