Monday is Meal Planning Day! 4/23/12 (Full Gaps Diet)

 

It’s taking me a little longer in meal planning now that I’m working with a new set of rules.  I know that once I get the hang of it and get my handy dandy Meal Chart adjusted for the GAPS diet, getting my weekly meal plan done won’t be so tedious.

 

Since the GAPS diet requires extra food preparation, I have added a “To Do” list to make sure I have everything prepped as needed.   (Although I’m finding that so far it’s not a whole lot more than what I’ve already been doing).  I’m also planning all 3 meals plus snack foods, just to be sure we have everything covered.   Since we’re still working on introducing all the lacto-fermented veggies I’ve been making, I don’t have them listed here.  I’m being kind and introducing them slowly to my family.  The ones we already know and love (saurkraut and cortido) will be served regularly with the lunch or dinner meal.

Notes:  I left Sunday blank because we started our new diet on Monday.  Also, I’m still on the hunt for our Friday night meal.  It is usually homemade mac and cheese or pizza night, so I’d like to keep with the theme and find something the kids will love and look forward to each week.  Please share ideas if you have any.

  2. Carmin, looks good! Are you skipping the intro diet for now?

    I have a suggestion for your special Friday night meal. Can you and your daughter eat almond flour? I’ve used this recipe to make pizza before. My husband who can eat whatever he likes with no problems (yet! :) , even prefers this crust to our old wheat flour ones.

    I think that these ingredients should all be okay on GAPS?

    • Hi Timber,

      Yes, we’re skipping Intro for now. I thought it would be wise to ease our way into it since I was already overwhelmed just thinking about the introduction part. Once we get used to the full diet, we go back and do the intro….I’m thinking maybe a few weeks to a month from now.

      Ah, that crust looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing it! Unfortunately neither of us can tolerate almonds right now. =-( I see so many GAPS recipes with almond flour too. I wonder if I could try it with another nut flour?

  3. I totally get it! I would probably do the same exact thing. It sounds smart and you can ease into it at your own pace. There are so many dynamics involved when you are taking care of the whole family.

    I don’t think that another nut flour would be very good, but I’ve also heard really good raves about using a cauliflower based crust like here:

    My internet friend over at joyful abode says the are pretty good: http://www.joyfulabode.com/2010/01/30/grain-free-low-carb-cauliflower-crust-pizza/

    Can you guys eat cauliflower? It kind of actually bothers me sometimes.
