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?
This favorite treat just so happens to be GAPS — but we were eating them before GAPS, and we’re still eating them after GAPS. So call them whatever you’d like, but definitely make them!
This is a variation of the Coconut-Honey Candy I shared last Easter. These are more Christmas-y with the mint. I took this candy to a Christmas potluck. The days leading up to the potluck had been really busy and I woke up that morning thinking I needed to come up with super easy dessert or I wouldn’t be taking anything at all. And literally 15 minutes later, this was in the fridge chilling.
It’s not quite fair of me to share these grain-free chocolate cupcakes in the GAPS series because they include a “cheat” ingredient — baking soda. If you are okay to use baking soda now and then, I think you will love these. If you can’t make that exception at this point, then just put them on the back burner for someday.
I’m just tickled to introduce you to Lauren. Below you’ll read her blessed GAPS healing story, and then she shares an easy slow cooker apple pie filling made without sugar or starch. Here in Oregon, it is beginning to feel like fall already and the apples are coming on. I think you can guess what I’ll be making soon.
‘Tis the season for berry picking! When we came home with 34 pound of blueberries, I created these scrumptious blueberry-lemon muffins. You can use blanched almond flour in this recipe if you’re on GAPS, or spelt or wheat flour if you’re not. Enjoy!
Reading Caroline’s story will be a delight! She’s a spunky 18-year old blogging at GUTSY. After a young-lifetime of health hurdles and complications, she took her health into her own hands and is seeing healing through God’s goodness and the GAPS diet. Keep reading all the way to the end for the delicious cookie recipe! –Wardee
When I knew we were going to talk about strawberries in this week’s Seasonal Recipe Round-Up, I asked my friend Marilynn Beard (from Just Making Noise) if I could share one of her ice cream recipes. She is the nourishing ice cream queen and has in fact written the book on it — Just Making Ice Cream.
We’re coming up on Easter, when we’re sure to be surrounded by heavily-sweetened, white-sugar laden, conventional treats. Here’s a whole food treat you can make instead! It is perhaps a wee bit on the sweet side, but that can be a good thing on a special occasion, I think. This post includes a video demonstration, plus the recipe in print.
