Going GAPS

Hello friends! It’s been a long time again!

It has been quite the summer for us, busy, busy, busy! But school is back and my now 3rd-graders (*gasp*) are getting back into their day-to-day school rhythm.
Which means, I get to go back to some kind of rhythm myself, too!

Lot’s has happened around here, not least of all a somewhat major change in eating protocol. Anna, my daughter, and I are currently following the GAPS protocol, which is not the easiest to do. But we are hoping for great improvements along the way and settling into our new plan.
Amazingly enough, Anna decided all by herself that she wanted to join me and we’ve since eased our way into it all through full GAPS. We have yet to do the intro at a later date, but for now we are on the full GAPS protocol.

Not familiar with GAPS? You can find out more here and here.

Which means a LOT of my time is spent in the kitchen. And even though I pretty much made most of our food from scratch as it was before, now it is EVERYTHING, and because only half of the family is on GAPS, it also means double cooking a lot of the time, even though I try to keep that to a minimum by just supplementing side dishes for the boys. For me, it is of course still more restrictive, as I am still having major issue with dairy, which is one of the reasons I opted for the “reset button” for my digestion and health that is the GAPS diet.

While delving into this whole new world of  dos and don’ts, I have also slowly started to come up with and/or revise old recipes to fit our current eating plan.

So, if you are on the GAPS/ SCD or paleo  journey too (many times GAPS specific recipes will also work for low-carbers (replacing the honey) and people who live gluten-free,) you are in luck, as you may find a whole new and ever expanding section of recipes on my site, suitable for those ways of eating.

I will start posting some of the new recipes over the next few days!

  1. I missed your posts. Glad to have you back. Thanks for this info. I am going to investigate.

  2. Good luck on the GAPS my friend and Anna! ♥ I love my beans too much to give them up. Looking forward to your recipes!

  3. Thanks Didi! You can have small white beans (navy and lima) on GAPS, so it's not missing completely :)
