Whether you struggle with autoimmune disease or any other chronic illness, the Autoimmune Protocol (more commonly referred to as “the AIP”) can be an amazingly therapeutic, restorative, healing solution. It is designed to provide the immune system with both the resources and opportunity to regulate itself, reducing inflammation and immune attacks, thereby mitigating a whole host of conditions. Personally, it helps me manage my own autoimmune conditions–Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, and lichen planus–and is an absolutely wonderful way for anyone to focus on healing and nutrient density.
But, I know that this lifestyle isn’t without its challenges – preparing compliant meals that are bursting with flavor (while not spending all day in the kitchen) being one of the biggest! That’s why I set out to compile my favorite AIP recipes into one amazing package. The result is The Best of the Autoimmune Protocol 2015, an e-book with contributions from 35 of the finest AIP bloggers in our community, with nearly 200 of the absolute best fully AIP-compliant recipes!
Never heard of the Autoimmune Protocol? It’s a therapeutic version of the Paleo diet, specifically designed to address diet and lifestyle factors contributing to autoimmune disease (it’s also relevant for any immune dysfunction or inflammation). By removing the foods that contribute to a leaky gut, gut dysbiosis (the wrong numbers, relative quantities, or types of microorganisms typically growing in the wrong locations in your gut), hormone imbalance, and that stimulate inflammation and the immune system, you can create the opportunity for your body to heal.
By addressing important lifestyle factors and changing your focus to eating nutrient-dense foods that support optimal gut health (and optimal health of your gut microorganisms), that restore levels of important nutrients and provide all of the building blocks that your body needs to heal and properly regulate the immune system, and that help resolve inflammation and support organ function, you create an environment in your body conducive to healing.
In my books The Paleo Approach, The Paleo Approach Cookbook and The Healing Kitchen, I provide lots of background for this way of eating and tons of recipes. But since I began my AIP journey, so many amazing bloggers have committed their time and talents to creating phenomenal recipes for our community. I wanted to bring my favorites together in The Best of the Autoimmune Protocol 2015, so you can find inspiration from across this amazingly supportive and dedicated community, all in one place!
The Best of the Autoimmune Protocol 2015 is a collection of the best recipes from the AIP community. No only do you get 200 amazing recipes in this e-book, but an introduction to a wealth of resources via this book’s 35 talented contributors.

Like all my books, this collection includes more than recipes. It also contains the basic why’s and how’s behind the AIP, meaning it’s a complete guide to getting started on the protocol. You’ll find a basic explanation of the scientific foundations of the AIP, as well as lists of Foods to Avoid and Foods to Eat. I also detail the importance of food quality, and give you resources and recommendations for stocking your pantry!
Depending on where you are in your healing, you might find the section on reintroducing foods helpful as well! Yep, this e-book is much more than just a collection of recipes. It’s really all you need to get going in the kitchen!

I purchased the Autoimmune Wellness Bundle, is what I have the same thing?
Yes, this version is nearly identical to the version that was provided in the Autoimmune Wellness Bundle. There are only 9 more recipes, and my honest opinion is that 9 recipes is never worth $19.99.
Is there a print version of The Best of the Autoimmune Protocol 2015?
You may have guessed from the title of The Best of the Autoimmune Protocol 2015, that it is my intention to serialize this e-book, with an entirely new collection of recipes each year. This format is not conducive to a print-version, however for those of you who just really prefer to read off of paper books, I did make sure to give The Best of the Autoimmune Protocol 2015 a printer-friendly design! Feel free to print off your own copy at home!
