As with most things on the GAPS diet, it does take some advanced planning and preparation. My three tips for traveling on the GAPS diet will help you have a successful adventure away from your home.

We’re heading down home… to your farms! Urban, suburban, or rural — whatever you’re growing and doing, we want to see it. Today’s featured farm is Hills Homestead in Australia. On a quest to produce more for themselves, Hayley and her family farm two acres of their own and keep cattle and a dairy cow on nearby land. Come on in and say hi — and check out the precious lambing pictures!
In today’s podcast, I’m visiting with Renee Harris from hardlotion.com. Raising, saving, and preparing food can take a toll on our skin and we should nourish and repair damaged skin with nourishing products. Such as… hard lotion! Frankly, there’s nothing like it. Also in this episode, we kick off a giveaway for 2 $50 gift certificates from MadeOn Skin Care Products and a 15% off coupon. Come on inside and check it out!
My family makes most of our baked goods with coconut flour. In addition to following GAPS, two of us need to be on a low-oxalate diet. Coconut flour is the only low-oxalate, GAPS-friendly flour. I really like that coconut is technically a fruit and is very low in anti-nutrients, making soaking unnecessary (as is necessary with all grains, nuts, and seeds). In this post, I’ll help you discover what makes coconut flour unique, how to bake with it, and I’ll share some of our favorite recipes.
We’re heading down home… to your farms! Urban, suburban, or rural — whatever you’re growing and doing, we want to see it. Today’s featured farm is Northern Home Garden. Anna and Jakob are creatively growing much of their food without owning a single foot of land.
I’m tickled to introduce you to Donielle Baker, the author of the book Naturally Knocked Up and the blog of the same name.

In this episode you’ll hear more about Donielle’s life, family, work, and new book. She shares the very real risks and issues with conventional fertility treatments. She gives her top three (natural!) tips for those dealing with infertility. And much more on today’s podcast!
As a nutritional therapist and GAPS practitioner, I get many questions about almond flour. Many of my GAPS clients miss their favorite baked goodies from time to time and need GAPS-friendly, real food alternatives — and almond flour often fits the bill! Almond flour is nothing more than ground almonds, but there are some important qualities we’ll talk about in this post. [by Wardee Harmon]

Meet Anthony and Jami Delgado of 2cool4skoolie.com. They are converting a 1980’s school bus — a “skoolie” — into a 300 square foot home for their family of five. Why would they do this? They have a heart-felt desire to live within their means and to live simply. In the interview, we get to get to the heart of these matters. Plus, they get very practical about how they’re going to keep up their traditional food habits, how they’ll continue homeschooling, where they’re going to park their bus, and much more on today’s episode of Know Your Food with Wardee.
