Prepping for the GAPS Diet!
Well, I did it! I got the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome, by Natasha Campbell- McBride MD. I have been wanting to try the "GAPS" diet for such a long time, and now I have the tool to try it. For the past week, I have read through the pages and my eyes have been opened! Now that I am educated about gut health, I am preparing for Day 1 of my new lifestyle (and I'm taking my family along with me!).
The recipes section of the book is a great way to get ideas for ways to improve probiotic intake through food choices. In the picture below, I have taken Dr, Campbell-McBride's recipe for fermented vegetable medley and tweaked it a bit. Isn't it beautiful! It should be ready after 1-2 weeks of fermentation.
I will be posting updates on how we are all doing on the GAPS diet and what benefits we are noticing from it. I am both scared (I have one extremely stubborn picky eater) and excited, so we'll see what happens in the next few months... :)
