Goodbye Grain

Tomorrow is the day! After all this time planning and consulting with docs and reading everything I could get my hands on, I have created a diet that I am really hoping will work to heal the last lingering sensitivities and sensory issues Action Boy is dealing with. Star Girl has quite a bit of behavior related issues that I’m hoping will also lessen– I have high hopes....

Found it!

Following a rabbit trail– found this from the blog Gaps Guide— finally some help with information toward salicylates! Thank you Gaps Guide! A lot of folks come to GAPS with quite a bit of experience and knowledge in foods and reactions. From them, we learn that many children with GAPS symptoms display behavioural issues specifically upon ingestion of high-salicylate foods....

3 Weeks to GAPS

I am on official countdown to GAPS mode now. I have assembled my lists, sourced local grass fed meat and cheese, pinned recipes and bookmarked blogs to keep me inspired. We have 3 weeks to go and although I’ve got Action Boy completely paleo except for gluten free oatmeal– the rest of us are far from grain free. From here on out, all dinners will be grain free. I’ll...

Honestly, it is overwhelming to say the least– but this book will be very helpful.  I’m looking at the meal plans also on this site as well as some...

When Low Sals are not enough: GAPS?

When Low Sals are not enough: GAPS?
My brain is spinning with information and details and meal plans.  The thought that we will live on a low salicylate diet for the rest of forever makes me sad.  Sad for my kids (especially Star Girl who could live on fruit and berries) and sad for myself just thinking about how difficult this is becoming.  With the hypoglycemia diagnosis for Action Boy came all kinds of new ideas on...

Menu Plan September 1

Menu Plan September 1
Every week is a new adventure around here.  New diet restrictions and (hopefully) new additions too– since last week Action Boy was diagnosed with hypoglycemia we had to revamp his meal plan a bit (eating every 2 hours).  Star Girl’s nosebleeds and bad attitude also returned, so we headed back to Stage 1 Feingold. Low salicylate and absolutely no artificials. On a positive...
