How to Eat at a Restaurant on AIP & Wahls Protocol

Does it feel like your ability to eat out at a restaurant came to a screeching halt when you started your autoimmune nutrition protocol? There are a lot of restrictions on what you can and can’t eat, even down to the oils that foods are cooked in. 

And does the risk of cross contamination apply to you? Will that really trigger symptoms or a potential flare?

What restaurants can you trust? 

What exactly can you eat?

How do you communicate your restrictions with your server?

With all these questions of uncertainty, it’s easy to just skip restaurants altogether, but they are often a big part of our social life. 

In today’s episode, we’re going to share the tools to help you navigate restaurants safely and effectively, so you can enjoy your health and your social life.
