White Chocolate Coconut Pie

Posted by on Jan 31, 2012 in GAPS, Low Oxalate, Recipe, Traditional Foods | 13 comments

I love Pintrest but those deserts people post seem impossible on GAPS or are filled with fake ingredients (and I want to eat them all!)  I spotted one the other day that I ignored at first but the lure of chocolate with coconut and the promise of “gluten free” and “Just 4 ingredients” sucked me in. I’m so glad it did! This is the original recipe. Of course chocolate is high oxalate and I can’t enjoy it in anything but tiny doses and this pie is not tiny doses so I decided to convert it to white chocolate. It was very good as it was but even better with some fruit. Next time I think I will plan to serve it with a fruit topping. This time I got lucky and it was near a bowl of fruit salad at...

GAPS Basics: Sour Cream

Posted by on Jan 30, 2012 in GAPS, Low Oxalate, Recipe, Traditional Foods | 51 comments

This is part 2 in my GAPS Basics series.  See part 1 Basic Bone Broth Tutorial: Why and how here. Time and again I see people asking how to make GAPS sour cream. They want to make it and yet they are nervous that the process is complicated or tricky. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is especially true if you are already used to fermenting other dairy (or non-dairy milks). The process is very similar. Sour cream is a delicious addition to lots of recipes.  It also can be whipped and sweetened and served with fruit or as a topping for pies and other deserts.  It is an important part of the GAPS milk shake that is recommended to pregnant moms and those in need of gaining weight or who are struggling with constipation.  In fact if you are struggling...

My family has been attending a new church for a few months. I’m not sure if it is the congregation or just that we have hit the point in GAPS where I feel very comfortable with it but I am wanting to make food to share at the pot luck meals. In the past I would just prepare food for my family and we would sit in a corner and eat it and be safe and a bit distant. Now our food goes right on the table and we just make sure we are first in line and take big helpings the first time since we don’t know if there will be anything we can eat left for a second run. I’m also enjoying figuring out new recipes to share with our friends and my family and I do...

GAPS Basics: Basic Bone Broth Tutorial: Why and How.

Posted by on Jan 27, 2012 in Blog, GAPS, Recipe, Traditional Foods | 37 comments

If you are considering the GAPS diet or just wanting to know how to preserve or improve your families health, making bone broth is a simple but powerful culinary skill to master. In short broth is one of the best foods you can feed your family. It is a multivitamin, a medicine for all kinds of sicknesses, and a delicious food wrapped up in one. It keeps you healthy, gets you even more healthy and helps you recover when sick. Since you control all of what is in your broth you don’t have to worry about allergies to hidden ingredients or cheap fillers. Broth is economical and good for the earth. It uses foods that you would be throwing away anyhow and makes more food out of it. It honors the animals who died to bring you the meat...

We all use it every day and we tend to assume it is working right as long as we don’t have major problems. We put stuff in, we get stuff out. Whatever is happening inside is happening and we don’t want to hear too much about it. Even with major issues we might be embarrassed or afraid to tell anyone what is going on. I have had to learn a lot about digestion over the past few years. It wasn’t working right for my youngest in many different ways and I had to understand what it was supposed to do and the various reasons why it might be doing something else. Above is an image of the gastero intestinal system.  Now I’m going to work through it and explain what should be happening and point out some ways that that is may...
