The autoimmune protocol diet is a grain-free diet that goes beyond the general paleo diet to a healing protocol. It is used for any immune system issue, as well as for dealing with gut issues. The diet is free of eggs, nightshades, dairy, nuts, seeds, but full of anti-inflammatory vegetables, healthy fats, and proteins such as beef, seafood, and chicken. Sweet potatoes and plantains are allowed as well.
I have been on the AIP diet for a couple of months and have found it helpful. But with such a strict protocol, it is good to have some resources on hand if you are on the diet, of are considering it. Today, I am giving away three books. This is for those who are considering going on the AIP diet, are currently on the AIP diet, or would like to have these resources on your bookshelf.
Victory Belt Publishing (the publisher of my cookbook, Ladled: Nourishing Salads for all Seasons) is kindly providing copies of the below three books to one winner!
All of these books were written (or co-written) by Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D. from The Paleo Mom. (Amazon links are affiliate).
The Paleo Approach
Her first book, The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body
is an AIP bible, full of research on all of the details of the AIP diet. While you can look up brief outlines of the diet, this book will help you understand each part of the diet, and why the details are important. She also deals with specific topics such as food sensitivities and intolerances, SIBO, and other problems that may also need to be addressed. This is a big book, but worth the read, especially for those of us who like to understand deeply the reasoning, research, and logic behind what we are doing.
The Paleo Approach Cookbook
The second book is The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body. The Paleo Approach lays down the guidelines; this cookbook helps you have the recipes you need to heal. What I appreciate about this book is that it is very thorough, sharing recipes for everything from rendering tallow, to main dishes, to offal recipes (a part of the AIP diet many of us neglect), to dessert recipes. It’s kind of like the “Nourishing Traditions” cookbook of the AIP world.
The Healing Kitchen
The third book is probably my favorite, The Healing Kitchen: 175+ Quick and Easy Paleo Recipes to Help You Thrive. This beautiful book gives easy and quick recipes that are delicious as well as AIP. I’ve tried several recipes from this book so far, and each one has been a success (I like the Oven Baked Pancakes, Beef Pot Pie, and the Cinnamon Raisin Porridge). I know that many of my readers here have also mentioned that this was one of their favorite AIP cookbooks, and I think that its popularity is well deserved.
This giveaway is open to anyone, and will be open until the 29th of February. The Winner will be picked using Random.org, and will be announced March 1st. The winner will be emailed and given five days to get back to me. If I haven’t heard from them, I will draw a new winner. (Make sure you use the correct email address when you enter, so I can get a hold of you! You will NOT be added to any email list when you enter this giveaway. 🙂 )

Hi Kimi, I am interested in a diet that may help me with acid reflux and a healthier diet overall. I am finding that I do better when I reduce gluten in my diet significantly. It has become more of a challenge for me to eat without having some sort of esophaegal spasm… Maybe these resources would help me. thank you, kp
I would love this, thank you
We have tried it to help heal a leaky gut but got frustrates and gave up. We would love some guidance and cookbooks to help with meal planning!
I’m pretty sure I have leaky gut so I’m trying really hard to heal my body by eating Paleo and this giveaway is perfect timing! Thank you!
I am trying to decide which healing diet to go on right now and would like some good resources.
I recently tried the AIP protocol and found it immensely helpful for gut issues, but need the support and encouragement for me to try sticking to the protocol for more than just a few days. This would be a great help! (I’m hoping Canadians can enter this contest)
I love cookbooks and I love to eat healthy food. Thanks for the opportunity to own your cookbooks.
I would love this, thank you
Thank you for all your research. I would enjoy these books.
My stomach is not always good and I need a little more help with what I am trying to do.
I’ve followed your blog for about four years and have learned so much from it! Your current journey with the AIP protocol is intriguing to me. I’ve been on GAPs Intro for 9 months…. slow but steady progress. It’s been helpful, but I’m excited to learn from the perspective you have on GAPS and the alternatives you are pursuing right now!
Blessings on your health!
I got diagnosed with primary Reynaud’s disease and am also struggling with eczema around my eyes. I plan to start the AIP diet in hopes that I can get both under control. These books look amazing!
I’m interested in continuing to work on healing our guts!
I just started clean eating 6 months ago and my health has improved dramatically. I am interested in these cookbooks as I would like to see if this way of eating propels me further in my search for good health. Thank you for the offer!
I would certainly love to learn to eat better to improve my health. This seems like a very sound approach.
Thank you for the opportunity to receive these books.
I have Hashimoto’s and as part of my healing protocol, I would like to implement the AIP diet. Thank you so much for the giveaway!
I’d love to learn more about this gut healing diet. Currently reading all I can about GAPS!
I’m interested in the aip diet to feel good
I would love to learn more about these diets. I have felt very bad for a few years now and have no idea what to do about it. I have eliminated all grains and sugars and gluten, but feel the same. I am at a loss and would like to try these theories.
Maybe following this protocol will be the missing piece to healing — I’m hopeful that these resources will help.
Health problems for our family, asthma, allergies, and food intolerences have encouraged our family to try other ways of eating and instead of the medicines that the Dr.s have continually given us, we are not getting better so would like to try a natural way to try and treat our health struggles.
I am interested in being healthy! I struggle with allergies and intolerances and just want to reach a stage where I feel well, have a clear mind and am energetic once more.
Thank you for all the helpful tips and useful information
I actually have the Paleo Approach book, but the other two would be a nice compliment and then I could gift the now extra book to someone I think needs it 🙂
I want more recipes for my family.
These would be exciting to add to my cookbook library!
I and other family members are having to cut out gluten and other things from our diet and I need recipes! This would be so helpful. I am very interested in learning more to help us. Thank you so much for the chance!
Would love this thank you!
I am interested in clean eating for myself and growing family! Thanks for all you do!
