Is it possible to do the AIP on a budget?
I won’t lie, it’s a challenge and you have to choose your battles when you’re doing the AIP and trying to stick to a budget.
My number one piece of advice for all things AIP … KEEP IT SIMPLE!
Don’t try to get fancy with complicated AIP Recipes, baking treats and using unfamiliar ingredients.
Since there are already great articles on this topic I won’t reinvent the wheel, but in a nutshell concentrate on simple meat and veggies with a focus on nutrient density. Prioritize (choose organic ingredients for the worst offenders – click here for the EWG dirty dozen and clean fifteen food list), meal plan (check out the best app for that – click here – it’ll help you schedule leftovers and choose recipes using minimal ingredients), batch cook and avoid wasting ingredients by using crafty, delicious recipes.
