IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:

Living La Vida AIP – Wendi from Wendi’s AIP Kitchen recently called on some of her AIP blogging pals (I’m sure you’ll recognize a few!) and put together our video clips. Some are over the top, yes – but all are so very relatable in a “been there done that” way.

#aipselfforgiveness – The first week of April many AIP bloggers got together and shared what self-forgiveness looks like for them. Missteps and mistakes happen for all of us, it’s important we allow room for compassion along the way to encourage healing.

NEWEST COOKBOOKS:

The Paleo Autoimmune Protocol Comfort Food Cookbook – Michelle from Unbound Wellness has a way with putting an AIP twist on familiar favorites. That’s what we can expect with these 100 comfort food recipes! The book releases in September, but you can pre-order it now and lock in the lowest price.

AIP By Season – This AIP community cookbook features 101 recipes designed to not only help you with a variety of delicious recipes that are AIP-friendly, but also as a guide to eating with the seasons. Despite still having snow outside, I’m told spring is coming.

NEW PODCASTS:

Paleo Magazine Radio Interviews ShopAIP founder, Sandra Dorst about her health journey and what led her to launching ShopAIP.  #261

Phoenix Helix Podcast: Fatigue – Fatigue and autoimmunity seem to go together. In this podcast episode, Eileen and her guest, Andrea Nakayama, dive into their connection, shares case studies, and how her functional nutrition matrix helps get to the root cause.

Emotional Autoimmunity Podcast: Andrea Nakayama – Andrea makes another podcast guest appearance in the community! This time she's opening up about her emotional journey living with Hashimoto's as a mother and a widow. Her story is a great example of being vulnerable while still facing life with hope and determination.
