A Peek into Day 1 of the GAPS Diet (source)

To give you an idea of what we ate on Day 1 of the GAPS Diet Revisited, I’ll share a peek into our menu. This is a look at full GAPS, but a new round of GAPS for us always includes plenty of foods recommended for GAPS intro.

Breakfast: Slow cooker chicken with lacto-fermented sauerkraut, olive oil, and unrefined salt; extras: Katie – elderberry “soda” (elderberry syrup & water to dilute), me – grilling herbs mix

Snack: banana; extra: me – kombucha with acerola cherry powder and iodine

Lunch: chicken soup – chicken broth, chicken, carrots, garlic, radishes, celery (used for flavoring & removed before eating), spinach, rosemary, unrefined salt, bay leaves; Stinging nettle & rose hips tea with local honey

Dinner: deconstructed Shepherd’s Pie – sautéed carrots, onions, garlic, ground beef, beef broth, and rosemary, topped with roasted cauliflower

Snack: banana


Day 1 is always easy as long as you have food planned for the day. My stash of freezer cooking has already been used up since we have eaten double what I anticipated. I’m happy I had some extra!

I am going to double the meal size for my freezer meals and have another session this weekend. Thanks to my new freezer cooking guide, it has been a breeze. The dishes that come with it not so much.
