GAPS Diet Recipes

Garlic Studded Lamb Roast - paleo GAPS SCD

The Gut and Psychology Syndrome or GAPS diet is a grain and refined sugar free diet, full of nutrient dense foods like meat, eggs, fats, vegetables, bone broths, and organ meats.  Compared to the standard American diet (SAD), this can be quite a shock for the home cook!  But there are many GAPS recipes that are tasty and easy to make.  For monthly meal plans full of recipes for the GAPS diet, check out my Grain Free Meal Plans. For recipes for the GAPS Intro Diet, see What Can I Eat Now, 30 Days on the GAPS Diet.

Recipes posted to my blog are provided below as well. I just realized that I’ve had my daughter on GAPS for nearly 2 years now- we’ve done a LOT of GAPS cooking in the past couple years, hope you find it helpful.  Find the GAPS book and supplements for the GAPS Diet on my Resources Page.

    Cara, I thought I saw a posting about soaking both almonds and cashews, but tonite when I was looking for info about that, I couldn’t find it. Am I crazy? If you do have a posting about it would you send me the link?

    Thanks for your help.

      I soak them all the same way- about 2-3 lbs, cover with water, add 1 tablespoon of sea salt and allow to soak. Use less salt if using less nuts. Soak overnight, drain, dry until dry :) Easy easy and yummy!

    I was wondering if you have a list of all the tools that you use for the GAPS diet, and what brands you use/reccommend? Since I recently got married, I have many gift certificates to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, so would I be able to find the appliances there? I noticed that the brand reccommendation for a juicer is one your site, but I’m not sure if I can purchase that where I live?

    How do you suggest dealing with almond flour? I know it should be soaked or fermented, but I’m having difficulty finding any instructions on how to do this with already ground nut-flour.

    Thank you!!

    Cara, Question? – Would you recommend that we start the into GAP if we have been on a Gluten Free diet for almost 3 years now. Or can we just go straight to the GAP recipes? My Daughter is still have stomach problems but I think it because she tends to get into Dads food that’s not Gluten Free and even thou her stomach hurts everyday I’m thinking she might have leaky gut and have been thinking about going on the GAP. Hoping that will heal her leaky gut. We are Gluten intolerance and she has special needs. We are both up in age and we found out about our GI in “09 so we were having to learn how to eat all over again. She is not a picky eater, in fact she’ll eat almost anything it’s just at my age and all the years I have taking care of her I just don’t like spending lots of time in the kitchen ( which I do now and not a very happy camper) You work and raise you kids and hope when you retire that your like will be so much easier, but it you have a child with special needs and there not feeling good a mother tries to find everything they can to make it better ( but at my age I said I’m getting a little tired she is my whole life and has been and will be )
    Any I’m sorry for getting off track just wanted to know what you think as to were I should start since you have some experience at this. I have your Best of Grain Free Meal Plans and also have your What to eat now book, but still not sure were I should start. Help Please.

    I have a six-year-old son and a husband whose mindset are the same — eat good food. So what do I feed them to start off? Beet soup is not an option. I need to make stock attractive so that they will eat it. After all, if they don’t get it in their bellies, it’s doing no good, right? :) I have your “What to Eat on GAPS,” but it’s not broken down into intro and full. I guess re-reading the GAPS book by Dr. Natasha is required, but those recipes were lacking in imagination. :)

    THANKS!!!!! Looking forward to doing GAPS! (sort of.)

    Wow! This is the list i’ve been looking for! Thanks for all your work in putting this together! I love your name by the way. It’s the same as my beloved childhood teddy bear. I got her after I was is a car wreck, hence the name. :) Blessings to you!

    Where are people finding duck or goose fat? Are those and ghee the only oils you can cook with on the diet?
