I was super excited to accidently come up with this recipe. I came up with another coconut flour brownie recipe last week, and then “messed up” on it this weekend right before having guests over, and was amazed at my mistake. They were SO good! 🙂 If you know me, you know I love me some chocolate, so this is going to become a staple in my home (you know, on the weekly list, like: Make butter, make yogurt, make granola, soak seeds, make brownies). Yup. I love them THAT much. 🙂
I have stocked up on everything we need for 3 months, so I wanted to share what we have on hand. If you’re just starting out with GAPS and wondering what kinds of food to keep in your pantry/fridge/freezer, this list just might help you!
When most people think of losing weight and getting healthier, they think of portion control and tasteless meals. We haven’t done any portion controlling, and our meals have been super yummy! Here’s a snapshot of some of the foods we have eaten over the last year. Many of these recipes can be found in my…
Woah my goodness, I can’t believe I am about to post these photos…but they’re real. This was me a year ago. Jan 4th was our 1 year anniversary of starting the GAPS Diet. These photos don’t even show the incredible difference this diet has made on our health…this is simply my weight….brace yourself…..
Tonight’s recipe “mistake” turned into an amazing dinner! This takes a bit of prep work in the morning, but if you know you’re going to be busy in the afternoon/evening but have time in the morning & you want a great dinner–this is it!
Since we’re shopping for 3 months, we’re eating up the fresh arugula we bought from a local farmer and enjoying it while it lasts! I found this dressing on Food Network, and then I added two extra ingredients into our salad: dried cranberries (I found local ones sweetened with honey, YUM. If you can’t find them, dry your own! :)) and roasted, salted pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds.
I promised I’d share another New Year’s resolution today, so here it is: I’m on my 4th day of NO SHOPPING for 3 months! Yes, that’s right, THREE MONTHS! I mean no shopping whatsoever.
none. nada. zilch!
Maybe the GAPS Diet is too big of a resolution? Here are some suggestions for little resolutions you can make to improve your diet and health:
The 23rd was a baking day for me, as we were preparing for Christmas celebrations. Since we’re on the GAPS diet and we don’t eat any refined flours or sugars, we had to make all of our own goodies. No big deal, I like baking. 🙂 What I don’t like is having all of the kids crowd around the counter, complaining about who gets to dump in the vanilla and who gets to lick the honey spoon. I’ve been baking with my kids ever since they were old enough to have their high chair scooted next to me in the kitchen (with measuring cups in hand!), and have wondered how to deal with this dilemma. This year, I came up with a solution!
I always post about when we “cheat” on the diet, but well, I just want to share because this diet is so amazing and we feel good so much of the time–so the times we don’t feel good really stand out.
