Cherry Basil Bruschetta

Once upon a time, we lived in the country. During that magical time, we had a ginormous garden. In the first year, we had 17 tomato plants of several varieties. There is nothing like fresh tomatoes in summer – until you discover that nightshades puff you up like puffer fish. Ahem. One of the tomato dishes I loved in summer was bruschetta (broo-SKET-ta, not broo-SHET-ta). ...

Mary Ann’s AIP Kitchen: How She Manages Hashimoto’s in Gainesville

  AIP Kitchen Tour is a monthly feature in which we profile a member of the AIP community and their kitchen setup in hopes that it will further inspire us to get our kitchens organized and set up for success! We’ve interviewed folks who are making the AIP lifestyle a reality in everything from college dorms and small city apartments, to large households with non-AIP family members, and everything in between. Through these ...

Roasted Vegetables with Sausage

  This Roasted Vegetables with Sausage recipe is one of my favorites to whip up on a busy weeknight or to batch cook ahead of time for some easy-access frozen meals later in the week. It’s extremely versatile and is a great way to get rid of leftover veggies you don’t know what else to do with. I like to use white-fleshed sweet potatoes when ...

Understanding Your Social and Emotional Relationship with Alcohol

Lately, I’ve been spending a good deal of time chatting with my autoimmune clients about alcohol and how it affects their healing process. It’s common among the autoimmune community to limit alcohol consumption because of its connection to inflammation (and the impact of booze on gut health in particular), but it can be one of the hardest things to actively restrict or eliminate. This is ...

Dandelion Pesto

If I had to pick my favorite wild plant that is readily available in a grocery store produce section, it would be dandelion greens. Yes, the weed most of us yank out of our gardens! Wild plants like dandelion greens have more antioxidants and nutrients than traditionally cultivated varieties, as they produce more phytonutrients defending themselves from their environment. This means they have more nutrition ...

The Eczema/Psoriasis AIP Medical Study is a Go! Thank You to Our Donors

The Autoimmune Wellness community has again come together in a BIG way! We want to take a minute to acknowledge the amazing folks who are initiating some big advancements in AIP, and to fill you in on what’s on the horizon! As you may remember, a few weeks ago, we announced that we’d be partnering with PhD/MD candidate, Lucy Mailing at the University of Illinois, ...

Why the words “remission” and “cure” do a disservice to the autoimmune community

Here at Autoimmune Wellness, we’re all about inspiring and encouraging people with autoimmune disease to take healing into their own hands. If I’ve learned anything in the seven years I’ve been at this work, both personally and professionally, it is the incredible capacity that dietary and lifestyle changes have to affect health outcomes for those who have no, little, or sub-optimal options working exclusively within ...

Sheet Pan Apricot Pork and Veggies

  As you all may have noticed, I’m on a sheet pan dinner kick. I really like the ease of roasting foods and I really love the flavors that result with roasting. I found the last two sheet pan recipes I wrote to be a great way to throw together a dinner that was bursting with flavor, minimized dishes, and worked loads of veggies into ...
