One of the hardest things about being on the Autoimmune Protocol diet (AIP) is the hours of prep. There's meal planning and shopping and prep. Oh, the food prep.

I'll never forget an exchange with my son, about a year ago. I told him we were having pasta for dinner. He was not impressed.

We hate to be the ones to bring this up…but probably the thought has crossed your mind, too. How do we know if the meat we order online is truly as clean as the company says it is?
