What fun! A health supplement in a totally fun package. You’ve got Kombucha with its beneficial acids, detoxing properties, and probiotics; raw honey as an enzyme-rich anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral healing food; and gelatin acting as a digestive aid and “protein sparer”. What’s not to love?
Mmmmm…. homemade pizza. I start with Erin’s pizza crust, but because we love a thin, crisp crust, I use half as much dough for each pizza. A single dough recipe will then make 2 pizza crusts! (I also use spelt flour, but you can use whole wheat.) The pizza pictured (from last night) is topped with cheese, pastured chicken, and sauteed onions/garlic/mushrooms. Often we add crisp bacon pieces, too.
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.
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.
