Have you heard of the autoimmune protocol(AIP)? It is a diet based on managing autoimmune conditions, but just because you don't have an autoimmune condition doesn't mean you can't benefit from this way of eating. Many people find relief from skin conditions, digestive issues, and other more minor health challenges from the autoimmune protocol. You can read here about my success with AIP in treating my own acne! Read on to learn how AIP works and how you can get started!

Bulletproof Mint Hot Chocolate

Have you heard of bulletproof coffee? It is the process of using fats such as butter or coconut oil over milk or cream in coffee. It is done by blending the coffee with the fats to emulsify it into a drink that resembles coffee with cream (and it is delicious!). I'm not as big coffee drinker, but I love me some tea and hot chocolate. So today I am sharing my recipe for 'bulletproof' hot chocolate.
