What do I eat in a day

One of my group AIP & Paleo Canada have come up with an idea of posting what a day in our AIP life looks like. Guidelines are state the health issue you are trying to address with the AIP approach and list what we ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with any supplements we take. This is a great way to support each other and let others have a glimpse of our one day menu.

Diagnosed mild to moderate Ulcerative Colitis June 1, 2013 confirmed by colonscopy.

Short term ASACOL and Salafolk, unable to control bleeding.

6 months later, went into another flare, stress and stomach bug triggered. Lost excessive weight, rebuilt with Absorb Plus pre- digested meal replacements for 3 - 4 months. Slowly reintroduce foods.
