Today, I bring you a whole bunch of easy AIP desserts (autoimmune paleo desserts).
In case you don't know what AIP is, (I sure didn't until about a year and a half ago), the AIP Diet (otherwise known as the Autoimmune Paleo Diet or the Autoimmune Protocol Diet) has been gaining popularity all over the world.
There are both good and bad reasons for that.
The bad reason for the popularity of the AIP diet is that autoimmune disease is on the rise. The incidents of things like Crohn's, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Graves, IBS, and more, have been increasing. (Source)
The good reason for the popularity of the AIP diet is that people are trying to find more natural ways to support their bodies as they deal with autoimmune conditions.
The AIP Diet
The AIP (autoimmune paleo) Diet removes foods that have been known to aggravate the health of those with autoimmune conditions.
Remove those foods and the body calms down.
Basically, this is a diet free of grains, nightshades, nuts, seeds, dairy, and eggs.
S0 — what CAN you eat on this diet? A LOT!
Help for Your Special Diet
In any case, one of the things that is hard about going on and staying on a special diet, is finding recipes that work, that are delicious, and that are easy.
Being on a special diet is hard enough as it is, but there aren't many “grab and go” AIP food stuffs in the stores, so you pretty much are needing to make your own.
And though I love cooking, life is busy and I don't want to spend my entire life there.
In the interest of making it easy for you all to try out this diet (or to pass it on to someone you love who has an autoimmune condition), I've rounded up some fabulous easy desserts.
It's hard enough being on a special diet, so I think that having treats in moderation is a good way to help you stay on track.
And even if you aren't on the AIP diet, and don't have an autoimmune disease, these desserts look so good I'm sure you will be excited to try them for yourself!
Also, if you are on a low-carb or keto diet, many of these recipes will work for you as well just by changing out the sweeteners.
Here's wishing you success with better health.
I hope these recipes encourage you to stay the course.
