Getting Ready for GAPS

Getting Ready for GAPS

I spoke to Action Boy’s doctor today and we made the final decision to go ahead and move forward on the GAPS diet the first week of November.  I purchased a very helpful e-book today from Health Home Happiness today. 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 cooking classes that are offered on other sites. I am really worried about the first week– the detox time.  When is a good week to schedule your family to be sick?  With my kids’ salicylate issues, I’m very nervous about how this whole thing is going to go. I’m ready though.  The best thing is that we have a really great local market where I can order all the grass fed meat and pick it up every other week– that’s going to help a lot.

I have been trying to reduce the amount of grains in Action Boy’s diet in particular but even for all of us at dinner time.  At this point, Action Boy is getting some rice milk and his nightly oatmeal.  I had started him on sprouted wheat bread a couple of weeks ago and he seemed to do well with that.  I will probably continue to do a little of that through October, keeping his diet about where it is now, and then beginning of November go into the GAPS intro.  Today I worked on sourcing the veggies and meat we will need- and found out that the local market I spoke of before has everything on the list. That’s a plus!  I also made a wish list of kitchen items I would love to have to make this all easier.  I even prioritized them so that I can check them off my list as I am able to purchase them.  Some things are pretty doable– like mason jars and thermoses but others are more of a dream!  Here’s my list:
