What we're about
This group is for those interested in exploring and learning about a Paleo diet, specifically an autoimmune paleo diet (AIP).
Paleo is a diet which avoids processed foods, grains & legumes as well as dairy, refined sugars, refined vegetable oils and potatoes.
Paleo dieters are encouraged to eat whole foods, including vegetables (lots), fruit, and organic meats.
AIP (autoimmune paleo diet) combines the paleo approach with an elimination diet in which other foods like eggs, nuts, nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) are also removed from a diet until autoimmune symptoms subside, and then are slowly added back in to see if symptoms return or not.
It can be difficult sometimes to find restaurants/venues and recipes for AIP and paleo foods. The intention of this meetup is to create potluck dinners in which paleo and AIP recipes and information can be shared and exchanged between members.
