HE WON'T KNOW ITS PALEO
100+ Autoimmune Protocol recipes to create with love and share with pride
It’s not often that gluten-free, grain-free and allergen-free food is delicious enough to sneak past a gluten-loving, All-American eater. But in He Won’t Know It’s Paleo, Bre’anna Emmitt takes you right into her kitchen where she prepared only paleo autoimmune protocol meals for six months before she finally came clean with her husband, Chris. In that time, she noticed drastic improvement in her two autoimmune diseases and began her popular blog, He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. Each recipe in this book was created with love, shared with sneakiness, and enjoyed with gusto. Her guideline to publishing is always this: If a recipe doesn’t meet her non-paleo husband’s approval, it doesn’t get published.
Following the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol does not have to mean compromising great taste. Bre’anna’s hope is that these recipes become your new family favorites - ones that not only improve your health, but that bring good food and great joy around your dinner table.
Praise for He Won’t Know It’s Paleo:
“Proper nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management are the foundations of well-being. But what do we do when the foods we eat make us sick? Where do we look for answers? And what do we do when traditional medicine fails us? Bre’anna Emmitt is a brave soul who took matters into her own hands to find help for herself. What she discovered is the healing power of food.”- Simone Norris, MD
“He Won't Know It's Paleo" is one of the most creative Autoimmune Protocol cookbooks I've seen yet! Bre'anna has adapted all your familiar favorites to elimination diet-friendly versions. The recipes and mouth-watering photography cover everything from apple pie to enchiladas. Tricking her hubby into making a dietary transition is what inspired Bre'anna's inventive creations and with her help, you can keep the secret from your family too. Shhh!" -Angie Alt, author of “The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook”
“Bre'anna Emmitt is the Paul Deen of the AIP community, providing the comfort food we love, with one big difference: these recipes are good for our health.” Eileen Laird, author of the popular AIP blog “Phoenix Helix”

Baking has always been my thing. Even as a child, I loved creating treats in the kitchen and remember getting grounded from baking as a punishment.
Today, I’m a busy mom of four and wife to my best friend, Chris. I began eating paleo when I found out I had a few autoimmune diseases (Hashimoto’s, Celiac, Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease). I was too young to feel sick, fatigued, stiff, and in pain all the time. I wanted to be the active, energetic mom I knew I used to be - and one my kids deserved. I knew I had to find a way to help me get my life and body back.
I started eating gluten-free, and it helped me tremendously. Eliminating dairy helped me even more, much to my dismay. However, when I started eating Paleo, and then the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, my symptoms truly vanished one-by-one. My first two cookbooks, He Won’t Know It’s Paleo and Holiday on the Autoimmune Protocol are entirely based on the paleo autoimmune protocol. My third cookbook, Blend and Bake Paleo requires a few reintroductions (eggs, nuts, chocolate, for example), but nut-free alternatives are listed in the Tips and Tricks section.
After 18 months of strictly following the autoimmune protocol, I began making a few successful reintroductions, and now eat a diet that consists of:
No grains (including no gluten)
Very minimal dairy (I try to leave it to holidays and special occasions, and stick with butter, sheep cheese, and goat cheese.)
Limited eggs (I will eat them baked into recipes, but usually not by themselves.)
No nightshades (nightshades include tomatoes, white potatoes, and peppers)
I’m sure my diet sounds very limited to most, and while I would love to eat whatever I want, I know I cannot. When others ask me if it’s hard, my answer is always the same:
“Yes. It is hard eating this way, but it is much harder being sick all the time.”
So whether you eat paleo for general wellness, for fitness or illness reasons, or are simply encouraging a loved one who needs help changing their diet, I hope my cookbooks give you real life, quick-and-easy, and delicious ways to enjoy food!
