The more I read, the more I am motivated to follow the Auto Immune Protocol.
But I am also extremely exhausted, experiencing a fibromyalgia (or Hashimoto’s…or both?) flare AND PMS.
I also have all of my normal mom & household responsibilities.
AND…I’m weaning off of caffeine :0
The photo above represents my first attempt at Sarah Ballantyne’s Breakfast Brew, a recipe I found in this book. It’s an *interesting* brew. I admit I hated the smell when it was done, though the taste isn’t so bad – especially with a dollop of coconut milk!
I don’t have my AIP approved-no-guar-gum-or-any-other-thickener coconut milk yet (good thing I’m EASING into AIP), though Super Hero Husband added a case of this to our subscribe and save. And we really did save – about $5 less than if we’d made a single purchase.
Sourcing AIP approved foods can be challenging for some things…like white sweet potatoes! Though I did find the oriental purple skinned white flesh potatoes are available at The Healthy Grocer – which is great because I see they are used in baked goods…like this one I can’t wait to try!
So far, I’ve stocked the freezer with 3 pounds of grilled chicken breast and 9 of these cute little Meat Muffins ;-0).
And right now…I’m too tired to stock anything else. In fact, I’ll just be satisfied if I can get through the day as Paleo-ish as possible.
I know I’m not the only one who FEELS AWFUL while trying to implement this (hopefully) life-restoring change. I’d love to hear from those further along in their AIP journey, as well as my fellow struggling Auto Immune Warrior brothers and sisters.
