Hey everyone! I'm back again! Did you miss me?
Well, I'm easing in. Nothing too controversial.
But don't worry, that's coming. Today groceries, next up… well, I have some ideas that are sure to stir up some trouble.
So I started the GAPS diet in February of 2014. It's been a long, hard road, as cliche as that sounds. (Hey, someone tell me how to get that accent mark over my e!) I'm happy to report that I feel better than I have in 15 years. Yay for a healthy, whole-foods diet!
GAPS is pretty restrictive, though as my healing progresses I do get to add more foods. But people often ask me what I eat, and I thought I'd share the typical things I buy at Costco.
Part of GAPS (and really any whole foods diet) is eliminating processed foods. We do eat some when they have limited ingredients, like the applesauce I bought today. However, it has ascorbic acid, which is not preferable. I won't be eating it, but I'll let the kids have it because their systems aren't as sensitive as mine.
With two teens in the house, food disappears fast!
Okay, here's the list:
The aforementioned applesauce. 36 individual cups, organic, no added sugar.
Organic chia seeds. I just started eating chia seed pudding, and I'm hooked!
Frozen organic strawberries
Organic baby cut carrots
Organic large carrots
Canned wild Alasken salmon
Pure maple syrup
You'll notice there aren't a lot of fresh vegetables on that list. It's not because we don't eat them; it's because there are very few that we eat frequently enough to justify buying in quantity.
Could you put together a meal or two from that list?
