AIP Friendly Breakfasts Served at Award-Winning New England B&B

AIP friendly breakfast at Stowe Lodging

Pictured: AIP Friendly Breakfast–Organic Bacon, Onion, Sage Chicken Patties; Organic Sweet Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts roasted in Coconut Oil; Fresh Fruit; Fresh Pressed Beet, Carrot, Apple, Lemon Juice; and Organic Bone Broth; Strawberry, Starfruit, Lemon for garnish.

Have special dietary needs? The Stone Hill Inn is AIP, Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian and Pescatarian diet friendly.

It’s true that planning a getaway or vacation when you’re following a strict diet, of any kind, proves to be difficult. Finding a great Inn or B&B that accommodates dietary restrictions is often a challenge.

It just got easier.

Autoimmune Disease is an epidemic in our society, but many sufferers have found great success and even remission from their respective diseases by following a strict diet known as The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). It is a nutrient dense, organic diet that eliminates grains/gluten, dairy, sugar, eggs, nuts/seeds, soy, nightshades, alcohol, and caffeine (to name a few).

At the Stone Hill Inn, we are very familiar with AIP, as well as, Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Pescatarian diets. Over 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid disease or Hashimoto’s. For 5 years, I suffered with multiple symptoms until I found out that Gluten, Dairy, and Soy were causing most of the issues. I eventually found AIP. Over the last few years, AIP has improved my total heath and eliminated all of my symptoms.

During this time, going on vacation or even a short getaway, was next to impossible because I didn’t want to wreck my diet and have my symptoms reemerge due to eating food that was not AIP compliant. Can you think of a B&B that offers an AIP breakfast?

Me either…until now!

We have been cooking gluten free, dairy free, soy free, Paleo, and AIP for several years now and are happy to accommodate any dietary restriction at breakfast, with advance notice. We can even whip up an afternoon snack, if needed.

So, what about dinner in Stowe???

Stowe is a foodie destination! Many of our restaurants offer farm to table dishes and are happy to accommodate these same dietary needs. Some of our favorites are: Harrison’s, Bistro at Ten Acres, Plate, Michael’s on the Hill, and Hen of the Wood.

Don’t let diet restrictions keep you from enjoying time away and our lovely Stowe, Vermont Inn. We are happy to make your stay perfect in every way we can.

Call us to book your AIP friendly getaway today (802) 253-6282 or book online. Romance is always season!

“Cheers to Health and Happiness!”

Before our stay I had called Kristie, as I am on AIP, and the dietary restrictions make it hard to travel. She knew exactly what I needed. We talked for over a half hour. She made special breakfasts for me each morning, that were completely amazing! She made our reservations for the things we wanted to do and even called a restaurant to explain to them what I could and couldn’t have. They made everything so easy and enjoyable!

Luxurious Gardens

Having survived Minnesota for 23 years, I promised myself when we moved back to PA that I would avoid residences with climates that dominate your life; i.e. a six-month winter.  Besides the emotional “stir-craziness,” they impose upon its denizens, they are especially hard on the golf game.  Not that golf needs to be the center of existence, but when you visit old friends that live in Florida or San Diego and try to compete with their year-round play, you often come out on the short end of the contest.

Today, I still enjoy golf, but two things have changed:  (1)Despite my promise, I have returned to a very NORTHERN climate, so I’m back on the six-month program; and (2) in my aging years I’ve found something I enjoy as much and often more than golf:  gardening.  Having passed the Penn State gardening course back in 2007, a little knowledge has encouraged me to literally ‘dig in,’ such that I often find myself losing track of time while getting my hands dirty!  I love it!  That’s what this note is about.  So, let’s talk gardening.

Stowe, Vermont –  Zone 4.  This is a definite contrast to PA — Zone 6 — where a mild climate allows you to grow darn near anything. After almost three years I’m still learning Vermont plants, and surprising to me, (given 20 below winters with six to ten feet of snow each year) many are striking.  As an example, this plant (pictured), is one that I find to be exquisite – one of the most spectacular that I’ve ever seen (short of some of the Longwood Garden orchids located just outside of Philly).

Zone 4 Gardening

This is currently blooming in our gardens.   Each of our guest rooms has a sliding glass door that allows them to walk directly into the back yard and explore the perennial gardens along with the man-made, 80’ path of streaming water lined by blooming flowers that ends with a three foot drop into a small pond.  

The objective of these gardens is to mirror the luxury found throughout the inn and its guest rooms.  Plus, the gardens provide locations where beauty overcomes everyday concerns, thus, naturally encouraging romance!  Yea!

 

Do you know this plant?  Isn’t it beautiful?  It is part of a small genus of flowering plants in the Iris family, Iridaceae. It is native to the grasslands of the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa. They can be evergreen or deciduous perennials that grow from basal underground corms.  Ours are deciduous.  Do you know its name?  Let me know if you think you can identify it.

We have many noteworthy plants in the gardens.  Gooseneck Loosestife (white) is very stunning but it is nearly invasive (the purple version of Loosestrife had been declared an outlaw in MN because it is so invasive and loves water — MN has 10,000 lakes!)  Because their blooms last a long time we will occasionally use the white Loosestrife among the daily flowers that adorn the dining room tables for breakfast.  However, because it’s so aggressive and has taken over too much territory, this Fall I will dig several hundred of these plants.  Hopefully some will find a home with other gardeners.

No doubt you’re aware of Heliopsis helianthoides?  Me neither.  Stone Hill was the first time I had ever seen them.  Early bloomers, they light up the garden with a blanket of at least a hundred square feet with brilliant yellow flowers.  They last for about two weeks and when not blooming are comfortable taking over new territory in the garden via rhizomes.   They aren’t cutting flowers.

Rudbeckia looks like daisies; also called coneflowers or black-eyed-susans.  We’ve got a bunch of them – and in groups of several hundred they are impressive – a sea of joy and energy.  About 2-3 feet in height, yellow-gold and they last for weeks.  We often use them in the dining room.

There’s tons more, but you get the idea.  Try to imagine the luxury of enjoying Baptisa, Euporbia, Lysimachia,  Weigela  and a dozen other species that make the gardens at Stone Hill Inn a delightful romantic encounter!   Oh you can bring your gloves if you want!
