You've read my story and have quite possibly observed my transformation.
Now it's your turn....and I am here to guide you.
I want to lead you to a life without chronic pain, fatigue, brain fog, inflammation, depression, high blood pressure, blood sugar issues, excess weight, gut issues, insomnia... and many other symptoms that are often accepted as "part of life" or "aging" ... and that is just not true!
Many of the above mentioned "pain points" can be improved if not completely eliminated by simply changing what you eat!

My AIP Diet
I am following the Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP). I am NO expert here! I have zero nutritional background! I am just a retired RN….and painter….and momma…and grandma….now living with Autoimmune Disease! I am under the supervision of my medical team and my nutritionist. I have spent hours scouring the internet for information….and there is so much available!
I understand this can be very overwhelming to some of you…..
So I have decided to list some very basic steps here of how to get started.
What is AIP?
This is way too in depth and out of my expertise….but I have discovered and fallen completely in love with the Paleo Mom….Dr. Sarah Ballantyne….and I will “link” or refer to her often…. Read her well laid-out description here.

My AIP Foodie Tips:
- Buy as MUCH organic as you possibly can!
- Wash all fruits and veggies in vinegar bath (1 cup vinegar to sink full of water) as soon as you get them home and before you put them away.
- Add good fat to your smoothies when you can. I add an avocado or a tablespoon of coconut oil to at least one smoothie per day.
- I add a teaspoon of coconut oil to my morning coffee
- Do not eat food that has been heated in a plastic container
