Summer Yum

Summer…what a wonderful season: cookouts and picnics, water fights and firefly strolls, basking in the sun, cooling off in the shade, overflowing gardens and the siren call of ice cream. When you start the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), it can be such a dramatic change to the way you’re used to eating, that it’s easy to fear your favorite foods are gone for good, and you have no idea what to eat at all. I’m here to help! The paleo community is a huge recipe resource, and I’ve gathered together 50 AIP-friendly recipes to satisfy your summer cravings, and most of them are from bloggers who are doing the AIP just like you!
