Getting started on GAPS can seem like a daunting task. But the trick is like they say JUST DO IT!
When I began in December 2009, I read the book through twice and then jumped in with both feet. I started with the full GAPS list of allowable foods and after four months I decided to do a round of Introduction. I'm glad I decided to go that route – beginning full GAPS first and then Introduction later. I felt that was the best way for me to manage the diet, especially since I hold a regular job. I didn't have time to get sick from detoxing (also considered “carb flu” since you are eating less carbohydrates). I have even asked Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride if it's okay for people to do full GAPS first and Introduction later and she gave her approval.
But I do feel it's important to do Introduction at some point in time, and sometimes you might want to do a couple of rounds just to get back on track. When I started on GAPS, Cara from Health Home and Happiness did not yet have her products available. I definitely would have found them helpful and it just so happens that they are currently on sale for 60% off for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY for everything you put in your cart.
So if you are planning to do Introduction, or maybe you have done it before and just going to do another round, Cara's Starter Package can be very helpful.
Cara has done Introduction with her children, so she knows what she is talking about. Maybe you are planning to do Introduction over Christmas break with your children, or maybe you want to get started all by yourself in January. Here's what you'll get in this starter kit:
- What Can I Eat Now? 30 Days on the GAPS Introduction Diet e-book
- 8 Week of Grain-Free Meal Plans
- Freezer Cooking Guide
- Full Color Cookbook e-book
This kit normally retails for $75 but with the coupon code will be only $30. Coupon Code: BLACKFRIDAY for 60% off at checkout Thursday-Monday at midnight only. This is my affiliate link: http://gapsdietjourney.com/start-gaps
You'll get recipes for 3 meals a day plus snacks, for every single day of the year! You get grocery lists, recipes indexes and all recipes are GAPS and SCD Friendly, plus they are gluten-free and dairy optional. This is the lowest price that these plans will be and for less than $6/month you can have your meals planned all year long. Use coupon code: BLACKFRIDAY for 60% off at checkout Thursday-Monday at midnight only. Click here: http://gapsdietjourney.com/health-home-happiness
