It’s Here!… “AIP SAFARI” … Your AIP Travel Companion!
AIP Safari is the ultimate guide to AIP travel with everything from travel recipes to tips for surviving travel while following the autoimmune protocol.
For the last few months, I’ve been working on a fun AIP resource called “AIP Safari: Fast, Friendly Food for any Adventure.” This book combines two of my favorite things… food and travel.
The book can be your’s for just $6.
The word SAFARI comes from the Swahili language of East Africa, where it simply means journey. But, since the 1850’s when an explorer used it to describe his travels in Africa, it has made it’s way into the English language, usually with connotations like the above pictures.
Growing up in East Africa, SAFARI was a regular part of life as we traveled across country for days at a time in our trusty land rover. These weren’t quick day trips, or leisurely drives along super highways, with convenience stores and rest areas along the way, but instead were five day treks along rough dirt tracks. We enjoyed the trips (most of the time) as we spotted animals along the way and played car games. BUT, these trips required lots and lots of pre-planning. For days, or weeks before a trip we’d be busy freezing water bottles, making bread, frying lots of meat, making survival bars and other treats, and making sure we had everything we needed for five days in the car. There would be no gas stations or supermarket stops along the way. If we needed it, it went in the car with us.
I know you’re wondering what this tale of African Safaris has to do with you and your AIP/ Paleo journey. Right? For most of us today, our journeys and adventures take us along well traveled paths where we’d have to try to avoid rest areas, gas stations, supermarkets or airport food courts, but traveling as part of the AIP/Paleo lifestyle often means a great deal of preparation and planning as although modern conveniences are everywhere, they’re rarely a benefit on our healing journeys. So, whether your adventure takes you to the carpool lane or the city park or on an airplane to Grandma’s house or further afield, the recipes and tips in this book will help you survive and thrive on your AIP Safari.
AIP Safari is packed full of recipes ready to be packed up and taken along on your next journey, tips for food packing and a TON of travel resources. These are some of the recipes you’ll find in the book. Whether you need a salad to take on a picnic, foods to pack for a plane flight or some treats for a road trip, you’ll find the recipes you need in this book. You’ll also find tips for getting food through airport security and links to resources to make your AIP travel easier.
As much fun as I had creating these recipes, my favorite part of the book was all of the extra pages. I had so much fun thinking through all these aspects of AIP travel.
