Have you heard of the Simply AIP Subscription Box? It's pretty cool! Plus I share what I ate on AIP (Autoimmune Paleo Protocol for Days 10-11). This is part of my What I ate on AIP series where I'm detailing everything I eat, how I feel, etc throughout my time on this healing diet
Simply AIP Subscription Box Review
I received a Simply AIP Subscription box for free to review and I have to say I was impressed.
I wasn't so sure what to expect, but when I received it, it was like Christmas Day! A box full of stuff I CAN EAT! Whoo hoo!
The items were all high quality, some I'd never heard of before (which was a big plus for me since I love finding out about new AIP-compliant products) and some I have had before and loved.
If you want to see the full review and what I actually got, watch the video below (it's under 5 min this time so pretty short)

My AIP JOURNEY: My Win
I went fishing with my kids – by myself. All day.
This wouldn't have been even a POSSIBILITY back before I did AIP the first time in 2014 since I had no energy at all to stand up, much less tend to kids' fishing needs all day.
In between 2014 and late 2017 I had plenty of energy and no problems doing something all day like this, but in the last few months I've noticed that starting to become a problem once more. Again, I'm doing this AIP since I'm suffering from a major Hashimoto's flare that was self-induced from going off my regular long-term Paleo diet onto just a gluten-free one full of grains that just don't seem to work for me. Apparently NOT a good idea for me, eh?
But my win was that I was once again able to do this fishing all day, standing all day, moving all day, having fun all day thing yet again. That's exciting and a good glimmer of hope for the future!
