Autoimmune-Friendly Offerings Now Available
Anti-inflamatory and Autoimmune-friendly foods now offered through The Good Kitchen Meal Delivery.
We are thrilled to be able to not only educate about, but also provide an alternative to The Standard American Diet (SAD). The Standard American Diet – comprised of a plethora of “foods” that can wreak havoc on the digestive system, is largely to blame for the rapid growth of food related diseases and metabolic syndrome in our country
As such, many have turned to the Paleo diet, or something akin to it as a means of getting healthy and healing the inflammation wrought on by poor dietary choices.
The Paleo diet is by nature, an anti-inflammatory diet. What that means is this: all of the ingredients that TGK uses in its Paleo meals can be digested by most without promoting inflammation or leaky gut.
There are some super foods however, that are more than just anti-inflammatory - they actually work to fight inflammation. For those suffering from an autoimmune disease (like Rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s, Colitis, etc), their bodies cannot differentiate between healthy tissue and foreign bodies, resulting in chronic inflammation and flare-ups.
“The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diet works to reduce inflammation in the intestines. Many elimination diets are not complete enough and often do not remove immune triggers that promote inflammation in the gut. AIP works to calm inflammation in the gut and also calm inflammation in the body. And while autoimmune disease can never be cured, it can be put into remission. The AIP diet is geared toward healing the intestinal mucosa and supporting low inflammation in the body that can temper the fires of an autoimmune flare-up.” (Source)
But you don’t have to suffer from an Autoimmune disease to benefit from the Autoimmune Protocol – if you have an illness, injury, or just need a jumpstart or tweak to your diet (or you just think the meals sound appealing), we would recommend giving our anti-inflammatory meals a shot.

On a separate note, please also keep in mind that not everyone wants to be 100% Paleo, especially those who are able to tolerate certain healthy foods that are not considered Paleo. Given this fact, and listening to the needs and desires of our customers, we have expanded our menu to include some healthy, well-sourced grains and legumes. We have been working with Anson Mills out of South Carolina to provide these "handmade mill goods from organic heirloom grains."
While we are very happy to provide some of these healthy Paleo alternatives, we also want you to be aware that they do not all fall under the Paleo umbrella, and may not suit your dietary needs.
We hope this helps you navigate our site and our meals according to your needs. Happy Eating!
