Special Diets / GAPS
Over the years, for a variety of reasons, our family has implemented various special diets. I was dairy-free and egg-free while nursing my son, and am currently on the GAPS diet, which is grain-free, refined-sweetener-free, and lactose-free. In addition, we have vegetarian and vegan friends, and like to have them over for dinner — so I’ve enjoyed the challenge of cooking to suit those lifestyle choices.
At the same time, I don’t want this to be a blog dedicated exclusively to any diet other than one that includes recipes from whole, natural ingredients, local and seasonal when possible. If you’re not interested in special diets, check my recipe page to see a comprehensive list — recipes are often labeled with dietary modifiers.
Below is a list of recipes that fit the GAPS diet protocol. Please make personal modifications as necessary, as the recipes often contain as-tolerated ingredients or controversial additions (such as baking soda, which is allowed and not allowed in different editions of the GAPS book).
