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.

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:

If you plan to do Introduction at any point in time, you might want to pick up What Can I Eat Now 30 Days on the GAPS Introduction Diet which is regularly $20 but now just $8. That's such an excellent price you should buy it just to have it in your GAPS arsenal.
If you are not planning on doing GAPS Introduction yet (or again), but maybe you are staying with GAPS for a couple years (like Dr. Natasha recommends) or maybe you are on a grain-free diet, I want you to know Cara's Grain-Free Meal Plans.

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.
