I’m taking a break

Hi Everyone!

You may have noticed I’ve been quiet these past few weeks and probably will be for a while. As much as I love helping you all, it is becoming very difficult for me to sustain the blog while working full time and studying to become a Nutritional Therapist. I’ve got lots of coursework and exams on at the moment and I’m trying to use all the time I’ve got outside of my job to work on all of this. Living with autoimmunity is not just about eating well, it’s also about managing stress levels, finding time to rest AND play.

I’m just taking some time out at the moment to refocus and not overstretch myself so I won’t be answering any private or public messages for a while.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for any kind of AIP information, other blogs and AIP recipes, please check out this awesome resources page over at Autoimmune Paleo. 

Best of luck with your healing journey! I hope to be back at the end of the summer. x x

A fresh start – I’m finished with AIP

I’m finished with AIP. In fact, I’m not even eating ‘paleo’. Over the past few months I have been experimenting with all kinds of non-paleo foods such as grains, pseudo-grains, legumes and dairy and I’ve concluded that the paleo diet no longer suits my needs. Before I get into details about how and why, let me just be clear that I am not dismissing or rejecting the benefits of the AIP or paleo diet. Clearly AIP has helped me tremendously to recover from both a Crohn’s flare and Alopecia Areata, but now that I have regained my health I personally believe that AIP no longer serves its purpose for me, particularly because it is limiting my health in other ways.
