How to Gain Weight on Autoimmune Paleo? Ingredients for the ultimate Autoimmune Paleo diet weight-gain shake

I am on an autoimmune paleo diet as it provides exceptional relief for my chronic "allergies" and other ailments. However, I feel as though fat is just melting off my body. I can even see a sixpack forming for the first time in my life.

On the one hand, that's great, and this is a healthy weight that my body clearly feels perfectly comfortable at.

However, I've always been skinny and even though I'm getting less skinny-fat and more skinny-ripped I'd like to put on some muscle mass. I've been lifting on-and-off for about a year and am realizing that all kinds of my gains are being held back by my diet.

I'm a normal dude with limited time and money so even though "eating more food" is a valid answer I'd like to come up with the ideal meal replacement shake.

What's the best autoimmune paleo-friendly, high-calorie muscle gain shake you can come up with?

  • Whey+casein protein is out
  • Milk is out (probably raw milk too as I'm avoiding dairy protein, not just lactose)
  • oats are out
  • peanut butter is out (probably)
  • egg yolks are possibly okay (egg whites are probably out)
  • ....

Thanks everyone, for so much... The answer may lie in me slowly re-introducing eliminated foods and finding that I can tolerate peanut butter, for instance. But I'd like to answer this question as best as possible in order to help people who may search for it in the future.

How about some data to work with?
Age, weight, waist, bodyfat guess.... now and when you started AIP

General questions w/o supporting details yield general / non-spedfic questions.

How long on AIP?

age: 22

weight: 140 lbs

height: 6'2"

bodyfat: 8% (I have no idea)

These are current and have not changed too much since I started AIP.

I really want this to be a resource for anyone looking for the answer to this same question, so let's keep this general. If you are familiar with the Autoimmune Paleo protocol, you'll understand that the hard part of this is the inspiration required to cleverly combine and think of ingredients.
