Having an autoimmune paleo holiday can be difficult with all of the dietary restrictions. However, with so many incredible recipes out there, it’s possible to plan a great holiday feast while still remaining totally autoimmune paleo (AIP) compliant.
I’ve been on the autoimmune paleo diet for a while and it has made such a big difference in how I feel. It’s really helped settle my blood sugar fluctuations, helped with low energy from adrenal fatigue, improved my sleep and totally eliminated my sugar cravings.
Although some might decide not to be so strict during the holidays, I wanted to put this list together to give you the option to make an incredible AIP holiday meal if you want!
Where to Get A Pasture Raised Turkey
Find a local farmer that offers pasture raised turkeys from your local farmers market (see farmer’s markets in your area at Local Harvest). You can also look up local farms at the online database Eat Wild.
