When you start the AIP diet, the grocery store suddenly becomes a mystery. Some if not all of your go-to products are suddenly not allowed. It’s a completely new experience. BUT if you’ve got an AIP Shopping List handy then trips to the market are less stressful and will help you save lots of time.
What can you eat on the AIP diet?
You can eat a large variety of fruit, vegetables and animal proteins. You just need to know which ones fit within the AIP template. This AIP grocery list is a good place to start.

Tips for using this AIP Shopping List
- Don’t forget to check labels. Companies (and DO!) change the ingredients in their products at any time without notice. It’s important to stay diligent about checking labels.
- I’ve found menu planning is very helpful to help from getting overwhelmed at the grocery store. If you’d like more info, I teach menu planning in my Simple as AIP course. Sign up to get more info here.
