Family is coming to town at the end of the week and we will be eating every meal together… this whole GAPS thing could get a little interesting! We’ll see how it goes… but we’re committed, so I am predicting that I will be jealous and have a lot of cravings! 🙂
Week 2 on the GAPS introduction diet. We discovered that my husband isn’t allergic to egg whites, just egg yolks, so he has been eating those freely and with joy! We are in stage 2-3 as he has not had any reactions or digestive difficulties at all until I tried to introduce cooked applesauce last night. Apparently his recovering intestines aren’t ready for apples yet… So here is a week of soups and easily digestible food.
Last week’s grain free dinners were all a superb HIT! Here we go again… This isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. However… we haven’t taken out dairy fully yet. We’ve turned it down, but haven’t shut off the tap. After we have used up all the dairy in our fridge, we are going on the FULL GAPS diet. Up until now it has been really just no grain, no sugar, no starch, add probiotics. My next goal is to FERMENT! We already do some fermented stuff, but not too many homemade things. I will be doing yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, beet kvass and maybe more. My house may smell like a brewery 🙂
