Suppose you're following the Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) diet. In that case, it can be challenging to find tasty snacks that fit this diet's guidelines. Fortunately, there are many options you can test! Here are some possibilities for AIP anti-inflammatory snacks. Inflammatory-promoting food is often a consequence of our consumer society, where poor-quality foods are encouraged.

  • Vegetable chips: Make your chips from sweet potato, parsnip, or beets. Slice the vegetables into thin pieces and bake them in the oven with olive oil and sea salt.
  • Carrot sticks with guacamole: Create a healthy dip with avocado, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Serve with carrot sticks for a crunchy snack.
  • Salmon rolls: Wrap smoked salmon around a slice of cucumber and drizzle with some lemon juice. It's a delicious snack rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Green smoothie: Prepare a nutritious green smoothie by combining leafy greens like kale and spinach with fresh fruit like mango. Add some coconut water for some extra flavor. 
  • Fruit bowl: Chop up some fresh fruit like apples, pear, and mango into cubes and serve in a bowl for a colorful and nourishing snack.
  • Vegetables with hummus: Use AIP-friendly ingredients like pumpkin, sweet potato, or avocado, and serve with raw vegetables like carrot or celery.
  • Sardines with lettuce: Sardines are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and fit well within the AIP diet. Serve them in a lettuce leaf to create your fish wrap.
  • Pre-made coconut wraps (carefully check the ingredients) that you can fill with delicious meat, fish, or salad.

By eating these healthy AIP snacks, you'll get the necessary nutrients and stay energized and motivated during the AIP diet.
