Do you hate cooking? Are you hesitating on trying paleo or the AIP because you don’t have time to do all the cooking it involves? Do you just not know how to cook? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, this is the post for you. Even though I love to cook, I have found myself without a lot of time to do it lately. This has given me a different perspective on all of the cooking required to do paleo and the AIP.
Okay, so you’ve got all the resource materials you need to start the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). Now, let’s go over some of the products you’ll need to create a successful transition to the AIP. These are products I use daily or weekly. In other words, I couldn’t live without them!
I’ve separated the products into foods and gadgets for you. Many of the foods, you may want to buy in bulk because you’ll be using them a lot. Even if you’re not ready to take the plunge into the Autoimmune Protocol yet, you’re going to want them for your paleo transition. I know several people who are going to be transitioning to paleo, as a stepping stone to the Autoimmune Protocol. One of those people is my very own Mom! After seeing the great improvements I’ve made in my health, she’s decided to give it a go! I’m so proud of her. And, I’m so proud of all of you who have decided to take your health into your own hands! What a wonderful testament to self love in the new year.

Obviously, you don’t have to purchase all of these products immediately to be successful on the Autoimmune Protocol. But, some of them will certainly be needed right away. Items like coconut oil, olive oil, are used quite often, if not daily. And, since you’ll be cooking more, you’re going to want to invest in some good cookware. Some nonstick pots and pans use a coating that can become toxic over time. It’s best to use stainless steel, ceramic, or cast iron. My cast iron skillets and pans have become a favorite in my home. I cannot tell you how much I’ve been loving my new Instant Pot. No joke, I’ve been making at least three dishes a day in it. In fact, I just ordered another inner pot, so I could easily move one dish to cool, while starting another. Yeah, I know, I’m nuts!
You’re also going to want a high powered blender, an immersion blender, and a food processor. Trust me, these items will make your life much easier! Oh, and get a ton of glass containers and jars to store your foods in. I also use freezer bags like crazy. Since you’re probably going to be preparing many meals in advance, you’re going to want to freeze them for later. I just buy Ziplock freezer bags in gallon and pint sizes at Costco.
Now, lastly, you may want to invest in a CSA or local farm food delivery, in your area. I personally use Door To Door Organics- Chicago. I love them! They deliver a box of farm fresh organic produce and locally farmed meats right to my door. Check out their website here to see if you’re in their delivery area. If you’re in Illinois, just click on the Door To Door Organics ad in this blog’s sidebar. There may be a special discount for you!
So, you’re all set to start your paleo and the Autoimmune Protocol transition! I’ll be offering you plenty of information to help you along the way. I, myself, am looking forward to starting some reintroductions in this wonderful new year. I also have a few surprises in store for you. I would love it if y’all would comment once in awhile to let me know how you’re doing. If you’re a little shy, check me out on Instagram. I think you’ll find the AIP community really welcoming over there. I’ve built some great, compassionate relationships on my Instagram account. Get connected!
Good health to all of y’all!

So, what products do paleo bloggers buy on a regular basis? I know sometimes it can seem as though we’re always endorsing so many different products on our blogs. You may wonder if we really use these products and services; or, are we just trying to sell you stuff. Well, I can’t speak for every blogger out there; but, the ones I know, actually use the products they endorse. Since pictures ( or video) speak louder than words, I thought I’d give you a peek into my May Vitacost shipment. And, just so you know I’m really unpacking my shipment, I filmed it from the opening of the box.
Now, you can see, I really use the items I suggest to you. I also order a huge amount of products from Amazon as well. Every product I recommend to you was used in the creation of my recipes, or in my daily life. I suggest if you order as many product as I do on Amazon, you get their Prime Membership. Even though the price just went up to $99/yr., it’s still totally worth it to me.
Most of the products I recommend can be found in the “Shop” section of this site. I also would like to suggest these ebooks below. The prices are amazing! Some of them can be rented for FREE, if you have a Prime Membership.
Oh, and yes, most bloggers do make money from the sale of the products they recommend. It’s how we keep our blogs running. The money I make from these affiliates pays for the products I need to create my recipes, the resources I need to bring you the latest information, and everything online related to keep my blog going. I can assure you that every cent you spend is greatly appreciated.
So, a sincere THANK YOU goes out to everyone who helps support this blog in any way, shape, or form. Thanks for the love!
