Abstract Background

MEAL PREP FOR THE WEEK AS SOMEONE WITH AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

As someone who was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, you can imagine how hard it is now to suddenly become ill to foods I have eaten over the last almost thirty years of my life. While my journey to wellness  certainly wasn't easy, it lead me to create each and every one of these recipes featured on damn good thyme.


One of the biggest things I learned that helped me on my healing journey was to always be prepared with foods that I enjoyed, and that weren't going to trigger inflammation in my body. Whether you're working from home like me, or on the go everyday, these recipes are sure to hit the spot for you!

Meal Prep Components

  • Fresh Fruits: Oranges and Strawberries

  • AIP and Paleo Friendly Pizza Crusts

  • Shredded Chicken

  • Apricot Bliss Balls

  • AIP Nomato Tomato Sauce (not pictured above)

  • Chia Seeds (not pictured above)

  • Arugula (not pictured above)

Meal Ideas:

Apricot Bliss Balls: These bites are so easy to make and are perfect for a meal prep! They come together in 5 minutes, and are made with minimal ingredients too!

Here are some more protein bite recipes:

AIP and Paleo Friendly Pizza Crusts: A monumental turn for anyone who says they cannot follow an AIP or Paleo diet because they love pizza too much! This pizza contains only AIP compliant ingredients from the dough all the way down to the homemade mozzarella cheese- making it paleo and whole 30 compliant as well.

Here are some ideas for toppings:

  • peppers and onions

  • arugula, homemade pesto, and dairy free mozzarella

  • basic cheese pizza

Pizza

Nomato Tomato Sauce: This tomato free AIP compliant sauce even surprised my traditional Italian family that there were no tomatoes used in its making. It goes perfect on pizzas, gluten free pastas, and alone with some gluten free italian bread (spoiler: recipe coming for that next week)



Tomato Sauce


Fresh Fruits: Without saying, it is essential to have some type of fruit on hand throughout the week. Whether it be frozen or fresh it must be in the house for me to add in to smoothies, or eat on its own. I try to pick two or three fruits (mixed between frozen and fresh) for the week to incorporate into my meals. Here's some way to include the fresh fruits into your meal prep:


Chia seed pudding

Low Histamine Fruit Options: I've found that green apples, blueberries, apricots, mangos, and peaches work best for sticking to a low histamine diet. This will differ for everyone, and you should only include the fruits that your body can tolerate.


Arugula: Arugula is so versatile! The easiest way to use it would be in a salad, but it also goes great with sandwiches and burgers! Here are some of my favorite recipes to add it to:


Chicken Burger

Shredded Chicken: I eat this daily, whether its with sweet potatoes, in a salad, or on a gluten free wrap, it hits the spot. Here are some ways to enjoy it:

Bell Pepper Sandwhich

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you decide what to meal prep?

At the end of the week I will go through Pinterest and find one or two ideas for meals I definitely want to make. From that I will find meals that include those same main ingredients. I also usually ensure to have 3-4 veggies prepped, 1-2 proteins, 1-2 carbs and a dessert as well.


For example, I knew I wanted to make an AIP/Paleo Compliant Pizza this week. So I wanted to include meals that would align with the ingredients I used to make the crusts/ nomato tomato sauce to keep the costs of the meal prep down.


Will there be recipes that go with this meal prep?

yes! Throughout the week I will post the recipes that I created from this meal prep. Also check out this post on Instagram for some more ideas.
