On Instagram recently, Dr Terry Wahls, of the Wahls Protocol, had a post about trying to eat at least 200 varieties of plants a year. The Wahls Protocol was designed to treat MS and has many overlapping foods and theories with the Autoimmune Protocol. It makes sense to me to eat a large variety of foods for the nutritional variety as well as considering the number of foods that are removed for both diets. Also, it sounds like a fun challenge! So, here goes. I will attempt to list and add to the plant foods that I eat this year.


  • granny smith apples
  • other red apples (will have to look up varieties)
  • watermelon
  • green grapes
  • red grapes
  • clementines
  • navel oranges
  • kiwi
  • bananas
  • plantains
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • pineapple
  • mandarin oranges
  • pears
  • coconut (milk, water, flakes)
  • lemon


  • spinach (at least 2 varieties)
  • romaine lettuce
  • iceberg lettuce
  • collard greens
  • garlic
  • red onion
  • yellow onion
  • sweet onion
  • green onion
  • sweet potato
  • japanese sweet potato

Nuts (these are not AIP, but I eat some occasionally)

It’s hard to think about this on the spot! I will be back to add more.
