Autoimmune Paleo: Week 6

Meatloaf, carob cupcakes, ice cream, sauerkraut…this has been a delicious week! Saia has taken his lunches to work lately, and he says that his coworkers are always jealous…until they find out what he is actually eating. Ha ha!

Pancakes filled with all the no-nos that our diet requires: flour, sugar, baking powder, and lots of yum. Why oh why did I ever take pancakes for granted? Think of all those…

Why We Started the Autoimmune Paleo Diet

Yesterday morning I drank my coffee (sweetened with cream and sugar), and munched on my toast with peanut butter, and reflected on the fact that it was the last time I would be eating all of these things for a few months. After thinking seriously about this I might have drunk a second cup of coffee for…
