AIP (Auto-Immune Protocol) Resources
Meet Mickey and Angie:
I am a fan. Read their blog, try their recipes, bookmark their website! They have experimented, researched and written extensively about auto-immune challenges and healing. Look at their books too - they even have a section on "batch" cooking.
Below are links that can be very helpful -- most of this comes from Mickey and Angie's "Resources" page:http://autoimmune-paleo.com/resources/
The Autoimmune Protocol:
The Paleo Mom—The website of Sarah Ballantyne, PhD., author and researcher of The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook. She is THE resource for all of the science behind the Autoimmune Protocol, how to do it correctly, and why it works. While her books are incredible, her website contains an overwhelming amount of information for anyone looking to get started.
I will forever be grateful for Sarah Ballantyne's insights into lichen planus. My own dermatologist really had nothing to offer, except for a shrug and some cortisone cream. Sarah's research led her to develop "AIP" food and menus. Following her guidelines, my skin condition cleared right up. I had been suffering for over a year! - auto-immune patient
Chris Kresser—Chris is an integrative medical practitioner and writes about health and the Paleo diet on his blog. I love his science-based approach, and his articles are well-researched and informative.

The Paleo Mom—Sarah Ballantyne’s site is not only great for AIP info, but it is chock-full of resources for those looking for more information on the Paleo diet, as well as how to transition your kids to eating this way.
