Inside Follow GAPS Academy, you'll get everything you need to follow the GAPS diet successfully and confidently for 12 months so that you can make real progress on the path to wellness.

This course is currently closed to the public.

Tell me if this sounds like you:

You've been hearing about the GAPS diet and what it has done for others, you've read the yellow GAPS book, and you know it's what your family needs.

You need to get to the root of your or your family's wellness issues, so you can stop dealing with annoying symptoms. 

You have too much advice on what is or isn't healthy, what you should eat or avoid, but no clarity on what will really get to the bottom of why the symptoms are there, and how to really resolve them for good

You're over trying to figure out how to find and cook GAPS foods correctly and know what foods are allowed when.

You're tired of feeling hopeless, helpless, and frustrated, and serving food your kids won't eat.

You're overwhelmed and wish there was an easy way to go through the GAPS diet confidently, correctly, and to really enjoy the journey. 

Good news!

I help my clients with those same problems every single day.

And if you're like any of them, you've probably made some of the same mistakes.

Mistakes like...

Mistake 1: Using the excuse that "the GAPS diet seems impossible to follow."

It can sure seem that way at first, and there are legtitimate challenges that can definitely come up. 

The good news?

The GAPS diet is really just a historic, traditional way of eating real foods. With some essential tips and strategies, you can eat this way in the modern world.

Food = Medicine.

It can take some adjustment at first, but our bodies need real food to heal and thrive. Once you get started and really feel the benefits, there's no going back. Real, nutrient dense food gives your body what it needs, and there's nothing like it.

Knowing how to feed your body the right way is one of the most powerful things when it comes to wellness.

Let the fact that the GAPS diet is different from the way many people eat in the modern world encourage you. If higly processed, dead foods are contributing to our modern chronic illness epidemic, you have power to change that in your life by changing the way you cook and eat.

P.S. Inside Follow GAPS, I help my students use my Gut Guidance strategy to prepare for and follow GAPS confidently and experince the benefits that real food can give, even if it is different from how many people eat today. 

Mistake 2: Using the excuse that "my kids (or myself!) will never want to eat GAPS foods."


Cravings or aversions to food aren't something to punish yourself (or your kids) over. 

Our gut bacteria determines what food sounds good or is repulsive to us. 

And changing this is totally within our control!

Healthy gut flora = a desire for real, nourishing food.

When our gut bacteria starts to become healthier, we start to want the foods that our body needs to rebuild and heal. The junk foods we used to crave don't even sound good anymore. 

This is the start of something so important: Really being in tune with what our body is saying. 

Over time, as the gut bacteria balance is restored with healthier flora, the body will ask for certain foods and other things, depending on what it needs at any given time. 

P.S. Inside Follow GAPS, I help my students change their gut flora to a healthier balance, abolishing cravings for junk foods. I also share my best tips and expereince for helping kids to really enjoy GAPS food. 

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. 

Mistake 4: Using the excuse that "I don't have time to follow GAPS."


I don't spend a lot of time making GAPS meals each day.

How do I do it?

By strategic planning, batch cooking, and having a collection of simple and delicious recipes, I am able to keep my family 100% on GAPS without spending all day in the kitchen. And we enjoy it!

Real, nourishing food doesn't have to be time consuming or complicated.

Often, the simplest dishes are the most delicious! 

Let's be honest, though: Isn't good health worth spending some time on? It can take a little bit of adjustment, but even the busiest people can make time for real food. 

P.S. Inside Follow GAPS, I help my students use my Gut Guidance strategy to make the most of their time on GAPS, so that they can feel better and still have plenty of time to enjoy their better health. 

Imagine if...

There was a way to stop putting off following GAPS and get rid of the overwhelm...

You could finally have the benefits you've been hearing about, and that your family needs...

You could actually look forward to cooking and mealtimes as an enjoyable and relaxing time...

You could have all of the above with an enjoyable, doable process that fits with your lifestyle...

All of that's possible inside

GAPS Newbies

If you've read the yellow GAPS book and know GAPS sounds like just what you need, but haven't felt quite ready to jump in yet, Follow GAPS Academy will give you what you need to get started now and follow through, confidently. 

GAPS "Failures"

It can be confusing trying to navigate the GAPS diet on your own. If you've tried the GAPS diet before and weren't able to follow it for as long as you would have liked, Follow GAPS Academy will provide the answers and strategies to help you really benefit from following the GAPS diet for as long as you want to, and even tweak it to fit special situations. 

GAPS Veterans

If you've been through the GAPS diet yourself and experienced the benefits, you can use the systems and strategies in Follow GAPS Academy to help kids and other family members (who may have different situations than you!) to follow the GAPS diet correctly. 

Basically, this is for you if...

  • You want to follow the GAPS diet the right way and expereince the benefits.
  • You've read the GAPS diet book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome, but don't know where to get started.
  • You've started making some GAPS foods, but you're overwhelmed by not knowing how to fit GAPS cooking into a busy schedule.
  • You've served GAPS meals to your kids, but you're overwhelmed by not knowing how to get them to enjoy the food.
  • You want an easy, straightforward strategy to help yourself or your family confidently follow the GAPS diet for 12 months, feel the benefits, and enjoy it.

On the flip-side...

  • This is not for you if...
  • You're looking for a magic bullet. 
  • You prefer getting lost in Google rabbit holes, reading blog posts from people who don't really know the latest, most correct information on how to follow the GAPS diet the right way.
  • You're not interested in enjoying nourishing food and feeling the benefits it can provide.
  • You want yourself and your family to stay in your current state of health for years to come, and not see any improvements. 

Hi, I'm Marisa!

I'm a mom of 3 and certified GAPS coach. I teach busy people how to make nourishing meals doable and delicious so that they can expereince the benefits of real, nutrient dense food.

My favorite things to geek out about are string instrument repair, classical music, beef tallow (it's amazing!) and wellness through nutrient dense food.

My greatest joy is my family—but my second greatest joy is helping people expereince what real food can do to impact their wellbeing, so they can feel good and live their life to the fullest.

Why I created this:

I wanted to package up what I learned and share it with more people. I wanted to help people confidently follow GAPS and experience the benefits without the frustration and confusion of trying to figure it out on their own. 

I also wanted to help families become healthier, and make GAPS doable for busy parents and kids. Now more than ever, we're facing a chronic illness epidemic in chidren like never before, and knowing how to make nourishing food for the good of future generations is more important than ever.

And I also figured, the benefits of GAPS are so amazing, I can't just keep this to myself!

I also belive that everyone has the right to good health and wellbeing, they just don't know how to get there yet.
