6 Best  Foods  For An Auto immune or Aip Diet

The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet focuses on nutrient-dense foods and avoiding foods that may cause inflammation in people with autoimmune diseases. This is meant to help them heal. Here are six of the best things to eat on an AIP plan.


1. Leafy Greens

Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and Swiss chard are beneficial for health and inflammation due to their vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Vitamin K and antioxidants like beta-carotene and lutein help fight oxidative stress and support bone health.

2. Wild-Caught Fish

Fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation. Omega-3s boost immunity and heart health. Avoid farmed fish pollutants by choosing wild-caught.

3. Bone Broth

Simmering animal bones and connective tissue creates nutrient-rich bone broth. Collagen, gelatin, and amino acids like glycine and proline help intestinal health, inflammation, and joint function. For quality and ingredient control, homemade bone broth is best.

4. Coconut Products

The AIP diet relies on coconut oil, milk, and aminos. Coconut oil includes antibacterial and anti-inflammatory medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Coconut milk and coconut aminos are dairy- and soy-free alternatives.

5. Fermented Foods

Probiotics in sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha boost gut and immunological health. They improve digestion and nutrition absorption. Histamine intolerance sufferers should avoid fermented foods because they may worsen symptoms.

6. Organic, Pastured Meats

On the AIP diet, pasture-raised, organic meats are best. They supply protein, iron, zinc, and B vitamins without hormones or antibiotics. To avoid toxins, choose grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chicken, and lamb.
