Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, Day 21

For the month of January I’m following the paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). It’s like a Whole30 – just minus eggs, nightshades, seeds & nuts. It’s a little insane, but the only way to truly find out if a skin issue I have is autoimmune in nature or not. For more information, see my preparation post.

The days are just flying by without nary a thought towards diet and what I can’t have now. Well. For the most part. But it’s not much longer until Reintroduction begins. I better start thinking about it beyond just starting with egg yolks.

Wot I ate today:
– Tea
– Broth + gelatin post run
– Lots of greens and some meatballs for breakfast, plus more broth
– Kiwis, coconut cream over blackberries, and lox with avocado on cucumber slices for snacks
– Chicken curry over cauliflower rice and an avocado for lunch
– Cherry pot roast over cauliflower rice for dinner
– Mango slices & magnesium for dessert

The run this morning only confirmed my feelings about cardio from yesterday’s hike. It went really well and I haven’t even run since New Year’s. I feel like my body is back, although how much of that is finally being over that illness and how much of is diet, I can only guess. But the running felt more effortless than it had been in the month before, so there’s that.

Also those meatballs are a certified win. You might remember from my Sunday cooking post that I added pureed beef liver to the mix to see if it would mask the flavor. Mask it, it does, and well. If I hadn’t added the liver and stirred it in by hand myself, I wouldn’t believe it. Next week I’ll try upping the ratio of liver to beef. This time it was 3oz to two pounds. I bet I could get away with 3oz to 1.5 or even 1 pound. We shall see!

    The lox with avocado and cucumber just sounds amazing. Definitely going to keep that as a snack when I re-start the 21dsd!
