Make sure the apple is ripe, and eat it peeled. Gradually introduce other raw fruits, avoiding citrus.
Baked goods using dried fruit as sweetener
You can use the nut bread recipe from Stage 4 and add fruit to it, or read the Internal Bliss cookbook or recipes from the GAPS book for more inspiration. Be careful not to buy dried fruit that has any added ingredients. We prefer to buy organic produce from a local farmer when it is in season, then dehydrate it ourselves. This saves a lot of money and guarantees a safe end product.
Make sure to continue eating foods from the previous stages, especially soups made from stock! Once there are no longer major symptoms, it’s time to move onto the Full GAPS Diet. How long it takes to get through the Intro diet will depend on the person.

P.S. – OK, I’m realizing now I should have been calling this “simple,” not “easy.” Basically, the foods you eat are simple. The list of what to eat isn’t long or complicated. Yes, there is prep work and planning involved. Any time people eat real food that doesn’t come from a box, there is prep work and planning!
