Hope you guys are all doing well! What’s everyone’s summer plans? I am so excited because my bestie will be here tomorrow night! I get 8 glorious weeks of girl chat, makeovers, wine nights and shopping, can not wait! Ok, ok, onto the post. So you guys have asked me a TON of questions about the AIP diet which is what I follow for Alopecia. I would say I was 95% strict AIP for about 2 months and then not so strict and now on a modified version and about 90% strict at this point.
Hey if you didn’t grow up eating the healthiest it takes time to get used to eating this way, so don’t beat yourself up if it’s tough to stick to. No one is perfect, but as long as you keep trying I promise you it gets easier and easier.

It’s a lot of protein and veggies, some fruit and you just have to get a little creative in the kitchen. Which is what we did. Derek being a personal chef and all, he was totally my lifeline throughout it. He taught me how to add a ton of flavour without compromising the rules. If you want I will share some of our recipes with you guys.
I know you’ve asked for What I Eat in a Day videos, and we will be working on some for you all very soon. So anyways, I had to find hacks and things that helped me get through it and decided to put my top tips on surviving the AIP diet into a video for you guys, and here it is:
Let me know if you have any questions about AIP!
