Day 51 update on my GAPS Diet Journey
I talked with a friend about GAPS. She said she wasn't ready to do anything like GAPS but she did ask what goes into “prep” and how many times a day do I eat. I told her about my feet and back, how they've stopped hurting. She asked me if I thought my feet and back stopping hurting due to losing weight? I don't think losing weight could have played a part in only 13 days. It's more likely that I removed foods that cause inflammation.
Today I made a loaf of sandwich bread from Elana Amsterdam's The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook today. I had to tweak the recipe a bit. It called for arrowroot powder, which is not GAPS legal. It turned out okay, and was actually it was pretty good. I think I was expecting a taller loaf, but I did have to tweak it some so maybe that is why it is shorter than I anticipated.
I managed to drink six glasses of water today. I drank two cups at a time each time. I didn't have to use my Albuterol last night – I felt like I was not breathing as well as I could be, but no wheezing. I didn't have to use it today either. I drank four glasses of water yesterday.
I guess I am going to just use my Albuterol as needed, and not worry about it too much. One of my goals from doing GAPS is to heal my asthma.
I'm pretty tired tonight. I wish I would see some improvement in my energy levels. I'm feeling a little weary.
I'm not having to take a nap every single day that I don't have to go to my regular job, so that is a positive.
I also made meatballs to go with the spiralized zucchini and the loaf of bread. The meatballs were fabulous, and I will definitely make them again.
Today was a good day, looking forward to tomorrow!
