    Cooking for Your Lifestyle recipes are developed using only ingredients listed only on the autoimmune protocol (AIP). All ingredients used organic and/or locally sourced, unless otherwise stated. Got food restrictions that go beyond what is allowable on the AIP? No problem! Just let me know so I can talk about ways to make the same dishes delicious for whoever may be eating it.

    Instructor Information

    I’m Mary Ann Hastings, and I am excited to be your instructor for this class. I have been cooking on the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) for the past eight years. Although the AIP is effective diet to address autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (which started me on this ‘healthy cooking/eating” journey), it can be difficult to implement and stick to. If you don’t know how to cook or you don’t like to cook (or both), it can be even more challenging…But… that’s where I can help you.

    I do not pretend to be a nutritionist, dietitian, or any other healthcare professional. It is not my intention for anything that is posted on my website or any other Cooking For Your Lifestyle – published material to be taken as medical advice. Rather, my goal is to teach you how to:

          1. Safely prepare and manage foods according to ServSafe guidelines and procedures.
          2. Implement the diet your doctor or healthcare professional has recommended
          3. Manage your time and relationships to maximize compliance with the AIP and minimize disruption to your life.
          4. Prepare delicious real whole foods that are more delicious than you ever imagined possible.

    You may have noticed that the location for this class is actually my home. Why? Because that’s where “home cooking” happens.  As a certified ServSafe Food Protection Manager, I will be teaching you all of the same principles of safe food handling and management as if the class were being held in a restaurant or certified kitchen. The difference is the setting and the food ingredients used, not in the cooking techniques you will be learning. Seem like a good idea to learn to cook on the AIP in your very own kitchen?  Then, click here to sign up.

    Cooking for Your Lifestyle recipes are developed using only ingredients listed on the autoimmune protocol (AIP). All ingredients used are organic and/or locally sourced, unless otherwise stated. If you have food restrictions that go beyond what is allowable on the AIP, please contact [email protected] to request accommodations before the class scheduled date.
