10 AIP Diet Dinner Ideas For Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

10 AIP Diet Dinner Ideas For Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

Looking for some AIP-friendly dinners to help put your Hashimoto’s at ease? I have you covered…

If this is the first time you have heard about AIP, let me fill you in:

AIP stands for the autoimmune protocol and it’s a popular diet used to help treat Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

It’s a restrictive diet that removes common food allergens with the goal of helping cool down thyroid gland inflammation and subdue thyroid antibodies.

I’m not a big fan of using the AIP diet for a prolonged period of time, but it’s great if you are in a flare-up or if you are trying to reset your thyroid.

Either way, enjoy!
