Starting the GAPS diet – day 1
I was going to wait longer and prepare more but after getting a seeming reaction to ghee last night (I still think that is what happened) I just decided to start the diet…I want to understand what is going on in my body and the only way I can see doing that now is by eliminating everything and starting over.
So I started today. I still have a lot to learn and I’m still reading the main text, but I have most of the early things I need prepared. I’ve not shared all that info yet, but I will try to soon. (for example I have sauerkraut that I made months ago all ready for introducing early probiotics)
I made an absolutely amazing and delicious meat broth. So good…I like it better than bone stock. It felt like the most nutritious thing in the world…I ate a bowl of soup with meat, marrow, all the connecting tissues on the bones and cauliflower and carrots.
It made me cry. It felt like reconnecting with being human. You know, my family ate stuff like that when I was a kid…I’ve always felt like a weirdo because I like marrow and fat and gristle…
Unfortunately we grow up into a world where we just don’t eat it even if we like it!
In any case I felt like I was coming home.
Healing has begun.
