Meal Planning Monday {Strict AIP}

Meal Planning Monday- a sample meal plan for the AIP Auto Immune Paleo Protocol

Last week I created a more structured meal plan after writing about my struggles with the flexibility I was providing (and all the holiday treats). I did SO well following last week’s plan…until we got to those “TBD” days around my birthday…then I ate things that made me feel really bad. Luckily this week I am back on the strict AIP elimination diet, which always makes me feel SO much better! I’m also taking over the @autoimmunepaleo
Instagram account, and after the first day I can say–it is so much fun! It’s a great community of AIPers who are very encouraging and on this healing journey together!

As a refresher, the strict Autoimmune Paleo diet eliminates all the foods that are likely to cause troubles (eggs, dairy, grains, nuts, seeds, nightshades, seed and nightshade-based spices, as well as all sugars and processed foods). What you’re left with are delicious meats, veggies, fruits, and healthy fats (and really, what more could a girl ask for?!)

Here’s this week’s meal plan:


Breakfast: Pork Chop with Mashed Basil Parsnips and Sautéed Spinach

Lunch: Green Smoothie (This wasn’t planned but I ate breakfast late and was way too full for a proper lunch)

Dinner: Sausage Stuffed Squash


Breakfast: Sausage with Baked Sweet Potato and Sautéed Spinach

Lunch: Tuna Salad

Dinner: Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps


Breakfast: Pulled Pork with Sweet Potato and Sautéed Spinach
