Mistake 3: Using the excuse that "GAPS is not an enjoyable way to eat."
Have you ever been to a top gourmet restaurant?
That's the kinds of food we enjoy on the GAPS diet. Full, nutrient dense, nourishing, delicious traditional foods that fed our healthiest ancestors.
Healing food = delicious, satisfying food.
If you're used to fad diets and depriving yourself, prepare for a big change. The GAPS diet isn't about deprivation or restriction, it is about satisfying and nourishing the body so that the body can have the tools it needs to rebuild itself.
You get to really give your body what it asks for when it comes to nourishing, traditional foods.
Start to wrap your mind around just how abundant good food is on GAPS: Rich broths, zesty ferments, succulent meats, and filling meals. It doesn't have to be complicated, either. Sometimes a big, bone in beef roast cooked until it's perfectly tender in broth with soft, sweet carrots and turnips served with some sauerkraut on the side is just what your body needs.
P.S. Inside Follow GAPS, I teach my students how to really enjoy cooking and eating GAPS foods, with helpful recipe videos, meal planning guides, and recipe templates for endless variety and enjoyment.
