I’m probably beginning to sound like a broken record, but I’m going to say it again. And again. And most certainly again.

Doing the Whole30 and consequently adapting a paleo diet as changed my life.

I first decided to do a January Whole30 back in October hoping that a change in diet would improve my Raynaud’s symptoms. Little did I know, that I also had Celiac disease and a whole slew of autoimmune issues in my family.

As the months have passed, I have continued to eat a paleo diet for a few reasons:

  1. It makes me feel GOOD. Before, I didn’t realize that I felt sluggish or bloated or foggy because that was normal. That was simply my every day.
  2. I have done an incredible amount of research on autoimmune diseases – where they come from and why, how they are all connected (hint: it’s all about the gut), and what you can do to improve your symptoms.

The Autoimmune Protocol, or AIP, is a specific diet that many people have found success in healing their autoimmune symptoms. The AIP is like the Whole30, but on steroids – no grains, legumes, dairy, refined sugar, nightshades, eggs, nuts, seeds… and a few other things. Essentially you are removing any potential dietary cause of inflammation to the body.

And if you know anything about autoimmune diseases, you know that inflammation in the body causes your symptoms to flare.

Two leaders in the autoimmine wellness world are Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt. They recently put out a book – The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook which is a guide to living well with chronic illness. And Mickey published The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook which includes over 110 AIP approved recipes meant to help manage your chronic illness.

I purchased both of these books a few weeks ago and have loved learning all this new autoimmune information.

Immediately, I was draw to these rainbow roasted root vegetables because I roast a huge batch of veggies each Sunday for meal prep. I did change around the veggies a bit based on what I had; but that’s the beauty of this recipe – you can use whatever root vegetables you want!

Ingredients
  • 8 medium carrots, cut into 1½ inch pieces
  • 4 medium beets (I used a mix of red and golden), cut into 1 inch cubes

  • 3 Tablespoons grass fed ghee, melted
  • Salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine carrots, beets, and rutabaga in a large bowl. Toss with ghee until coated.
  3. Transfer vegetables to two baking sheets, making sure not to overcrowd your pans. Sprinkle with salt.
  4. Roast for 40-50 minutes, until vegetables are soft and cooked through. Make sure to stir halfway through so the vegetables can brown on both sides.
Notes
Feel free to use whatever mix of root vegetables you would like. This would be great with sweet potato and parsnips as well!
Recipe was slightly adapted from The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook.

    It’s incredible and amazing that you are feeling so much better. We actually have an intern who is interning for my dad who did the AIP diet a while ago, and now he doesn’t eat grains, dairy, or eggs. It’s amazing how you can work with your body to help it heal and protect it. <3 I'm thankful God gave us minds to search out and be able to learn about how to best work with food and our bodies. And . . . what you eat is not boring. It's so PRETTY and varied; I love seeing your eats on the 'gram.

      Thanks so much Emily! And the AIP is such an incredible way to determine what foods help your body and those that hurt it. We are all so different that it can be frustrating to go through an elimination diet on your own, but the result is so rewarding!
