I’m trying not to be obnoxious about it, but as I see how great our family feels on GAPS I find myself talking about it perhaps too much. Quickly into the conversation people ask me, so what can you eat? When I came home from a weekly shopping trip and saw that I had only bought GAPS-approved food, I took a picture to show how many awesome yummy foods you can have on GAPS. In addition to this, we’ve introduced sprouted lentils, and have our olive oil and coconut oil.
I know a lot of us health-minded people are intrigued by the idea of ‘cleanses’ and fasts to detoxify the body. But I’ve found that I don’t have the ability to stay on most fasts/cleanses because of pregnancy/breastfeeding (I got pregnant in 12/05 with my daughter and have been pregnant and/or breastfeeding ever sense), or I just am not able to function with my day-to-day activities on the cleanse due to low energy. On GAPS I have tons of energy, I’ve even cut back to a reasonable amount of coffee (one and a half small coffee cups).
I like bread, but there are plenty of other carbs available, plus recipes for bread-like things made with squash and nut flours.
