Coconut Apricot Pecan Balls Recipe with AIP Option

I don’t know about you; but, I’m trying to squeeze as much fun out of this summer as I can.  I’ve enjoyed family visits, creating new recipes from fresh organic produce, walking through local farmers’ markets, and discovering new restaurants offering gluten free options.

I’ve learned a lot in this first year after my lupus diagnosis.  There is just so much information I want to share with you.  The greatest discovery I’ve made is that I could feel good again.  Going AIP paleo gave me that.  AIP paleo has helped me shed those unwanted pounds, streamline my diet to whole foods, gain energy I haven’t had in years, and completely heal my leaky, sick gut.  Although my lupus is not in total remission, I know it’s just a matter of time and perseverance.  I didn’t get sick in one year; so, I can’t expect to heal everything in one year.

The reason I’m acting all nostalgic is because I’m getting ready to announce some great resources coming to this blog and other avenues.  I’ve already added a great PDF list of foods to eat and avoid on the AIP Paleo Program.  You can find and download your copy from the Autoimmune Paleo tab in the menu above.

So, be sure to stay tuned to this blog because I have lots to share with you.  I’ll be discussing meal prep ideas, amazing paleo products and companies, how-to videos, and a whole lot more.  It’s so exciting!

And now, the reason many of you came here, my Coconut Apricot Pecan Balls Recipe.  They are addictive! You can make them AIP compliant by omitting the pecans.
