Halloween is going to look differently this year – no trick-or-treating, parties, or gatherings – BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! So, when the holiday is traditionally centered around candy how can you make it Autoimmune Protocol friendly? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with some of my favorite spooky activties!

So, my dad being the incredible gardener he is, decided to grow a little pumpkin patch in his backyard and so far it has produced a pretty good harvest.

I never was a big fan of salad. It was probably because I could never tolerate them well when my Ulcerative Colitis was so active. Now that my digestion has improved, that’s a whole different story! I love the freshness and different textures of salads and how you can dress them up with just about anything!

As the days are getting cooler here I wanted to create a fall-twist on this warm weather classic by adding sweet potatoes, raisins, almonds and those
