GAPS Intro Diet: Halfway there

gaps stage one

I’ve been on the GAPS intro diet for three weeks now, and will be progressing to step four of six tomorrow. This means I am halfway through it and happily, GAPS feels like a way of life already. Now I’ve got to grips with everything that needs to be done, I’m not finding it difficult or challenging.

Here’s what I’ve learnt so far:
– above all else, tune in and listen to your body. Everything from introducing Bio-Kult really slowly, to not over eating has been a learning curve for me. GAPS is all about knowing what is right for your body and when

– on the same note, don’t be overly paranoid about every single thing you’re eating otherwise you’ll drive yourself nuts

– never get caught short on stock, try and be at least a day ahead at all times

– look for ways to make GAPS easier on the pocket. Check out my farmers market post for what I’m doing

– quality is everything, spend a little more and get the best possible ingredients

– believe in the diet 100%, otherwise it just isn’t worth bothering at all

Recipe for the pancakes above: 
2 eggs
Small piece of peeled courgette
2 tbsp cashew nuts

Method:
– whiz ingredients into a smooth batter
– allow to rest for 15 minutes
– heat oil/fat of choice (I used duck fat)
– fry as you would any other pancake

  1. They were really tasty Denise – i reckon with a knob of butter and drizzle of honey on the top they would make a serious rival to a traditional pancake!
