What’s On Your Holiday Menu? (GAPS Diet, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free)

Brown Butter Spice Cake

The holidays are here… you're on GAPS… what are you going to eat?

I started GAPS in early December so that first Christmas and New Year was interesting… since my feet and back stopped hurting in under two weeks, I was already committed to sticking with GAPS. It would have been a LOT easier if I'd had Nourishing Holiday, an e-book created by my affiliate partner Jaclyn Harwell.

Right now you can get 20% off with a special promo code that Jaclyn has given me for my readers. Use promo code GAPSJOURNEY and click on this link to get your very own e-copy and get a head start on planning your holiday menu: Nourishing Holiday
