Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day! 

Let’s talk about books today..

Here’s a fun fact: My husband gets annoyed when I buy a new book to read. Why? I sit down (typically with a cup of coffee or mug of tea), crack it open then shove my nose directly into the pages and say, “MMM… I LOVE the smell of a new book.”




And what does my husband say? “I KNOW!!!!!!! GEEZ!!! You’re so weird!” He’s a techy type that would rather download the book on his phone, which is unimaginable to me. Isn’t it funny how opposites attract? It’s hard to get that new book smell when sniffing a download. 😉

I LOVE the smell of a brand new book. Call me crazy but it’s the most comforting yet exciting smell. Maybe it’s because my mind knows it’s about to get lost in either a good story or lots of knowledge. Just sitting there for hours, reading, underlining, dog-earing the pages,  making mental notes.. it’s addictive!

If you’re like me then this post is for you.

Here is a list of the BEST books you can purchase when it comes to healing your body through nutrition, particularly via the Autoimmune Protocol (or Paleo) Diet. (What is AIP?)

Posting tried and true resources like this is important to me because it’s essential to know who the actual experts are. I’m being real when I say, the things I post about are through my experience only! So when you have questions that need to be answered or an absence of knowledge in a particular area of health, it’s safest to learn from ACTUAL experts but gain inspiration and motivation from people, like bloggers, who share their health stories – like me! ♥

The books outlined below can help you reverse your autoimmune disease, live a better life, and heal yourself. You CAN take control of your health. You CAN feel better. You CAN (in many cases) become medication free.

And all thanks to what you eat!
