What is AIP?
The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) uses diet and lifestyle to help reduce symptoms of autoimmune disease by eliminating potentially inflammatory foods to give the body the opportunity to heal. AIP encourages nutrient-dense foods such as meat, vegetables, and fruit, and avoids the following foods during the strict elimination phase:
- All Grains
- Refined Sugar
- Food Additives
The Autoimmune Protocol is also about self-care: getting plentiful sleep, restorative movement, managing stress, and fostering positive social connections are just as important as food in your healing journey. Self-care items will be included in each box to help you reach your full healing potential. After symptoms are significantly reduced, you can then begin to gradually reintroduce foods to find the best balance for your body.

What’s in the Simply AIP Box?
Each Simply AIP monthly box includes taste-tested, carefully curated AIP-friendly items, including:
- Grab-and-go snacks that you can eat on the run
- Sweet treats that help you resist the sugar cravings
- AIP pantry staples with recipes that save you time in the kitchen
- Self-care enhancers to further your healing journey
- An online community to provide positive support and additional resources
But not everyone on AIP eats exactly the same foods, right?
Right! Even when following a strict protocol like AIP, everyone customizes their own meals based on things like personal preferences or additional sensitivities. However, there are more similarities than there are differences. Simply AIP follows the Autoimmune Wellness Handbook by Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt, so you can be assured that everything in your box each month is AIP-compliant. Even if you have moved past the strict elimination phase, Simply AIP will still be great for the reintroduction phase (which can last for several months) and as you transition into a Paleo diet.
Would the Simply AIP box work for me even if I don’t follow AIP?
Items in the Simply AIP box are hand-selected specifically for the Autoimmune Protocol, but they are also perfect for those who eat grain-free or gluten-free diets, have food allergies or sensitivities, want to reduce joint pain and inflammation or follow a Paleo or just generally healthy lifestyle.
Do you attempt to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent autoimmune (or any other) disease?
Definitely not. The goal of the Simply AIP box is to make it easier to stick with the Autoimmune Protocol. I am not a medical professional, and neither is my team. I’m simply sharing products and tips with you that have helped me successfully live my best life on AIP. Nothing on this page is intended to be and should not be interpreted as medical advice or a diagnosis of any health or fitness problem, condition or disease. Please consult with your doctor or other qualified health professional before changing your diet, taking vitamins or supplements, or modifying your exercise routine. Also, please read the packaging and product information that accompanies each of the products in our boxes to determine if they are right for your individual needs.
When will my package arrive?
We ship on or around the 8th of each month. Place your order by the last day of the previous month to get your beautiful box with everyone else. If you order in the beginning or middle of the month, please know that you won’t get your box until the beginning of the next month. If that feels like just too long to wait, check out the Simply AIP shop to find a themed box that you love and we will ship it to you right away!
Is there a contract?
Nope! You can subscribe month-to-month (cancel anytime) or you can prepay for three, six, or twelve months at a time. If you pre-pay on an annual plan, you’ll get ONE MONTH FREE! If you are on a recurring subscription, renewals are posted to your credit card on the 15th of each month. If you need to skip a month or cancel, we’ll welcome you back when you are able to rejoin.
How do I make changes or cancel my subscription?
You can make changes to billing, skip a month, or cancel your subscription just by logging into your account.
I really hope that you enjoy your box and don’t want to cancel! Before you leave, please email us at hello@simplyAIP.com to give us a chance to address your concerns before you go.
If you do cancel your subscription, you will no longer be billed. You will receive all boxes that you have paid for.
WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ON BOXES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN SHIPPED. THIS SUBSCRIPTION IS A SURPRISE BOX SO THAT’S PART OF THE FUN WHEN YOU SUBSCRIBE. If you aren’t in love with the box contents, that is the perfect opportunity to gift some of the items to your health-conscious friends. Contents change each month, so the next month’s items will hopefully be more to your taste. If not, please make sure you cancel your auto-renewal so you aren’t stuck with another shipment that’s not a good fit for you.
Can I give this as a gift?
Absolutely! Just click on the Give a Gift button below. Choose the plan (most popular for gift subscriptions is 3 months) and whether or not it will automatically renew (most are non-renewing). You can leave a gift message to be included in the box. Be sure that you correctly enter your billing address but THEIR shipping address.
