Today Is Your Day!
Okay, not today (or maybe it is) – but soon! If you’ve been wanting to start GAPS, the 30Day GAPS Intro Challenge hosted by Cara at Health Home & Happiness is right around the corner! Starting October 1st families in Duluth, Dallas, Delaware and where you live will be starting “Intro” together.
“Intro” is GAPster speak for the intensive healing first phase of the diet. And by intensive I mean soup. Lots and lots and LOTS of it!
But hey! It’s not so bad. Soups and stews make delightful fall meals, and if you get started next month you’ll be ready to feast on goodies from the full GAPS menu this holiday season. You’ll have lots to choose from, believe me.
Yes, there’s egg nog.
Yes, there are cookies.
Yes, you can have pancakes.
And yes, you can even have berry cobbler.
A quick blip through the intensive healing phase and you’ll be there. Pinky swear and everything.
But First, You Must Decide
Will it be the red pill or the blue? No wait, that’s not right! You need to decide on a STRATEGY – otherwise you’ll wake up and realize the broth you need for breakfast is still sitting in the freezer way. too. many. times.
If strategy is not your thing (it’s definitely not mine), What Can I Eat Now? is the essential guide to Intro. I don’t know how people survived Intro before Cara created this 57 page wonder. Or actually, I do, because she sent it to me when we were halfway through our first round. It’s like the difference between cracking a coconut with a hammer instead of a plastic spoon!
Cara covers everything – sourcing foods, switching your toiletries to non-toxic versions (including recipes), reminders to start fermented foods, recipes for detox baths, and of course creative casseroles, stews, and other meals I never would have thought up on my own. Want to take a peek??? You can download a preview here.
