GAPS Friendly Friday #18

Thanks to all of you who participated in GAPS Friendly Fridays last week!

You don’t have to be on the GAPS diet to participate, but recipes that you post should be GAPS Legal. Many SCD, Paleo, Primal, and grain-free real food recipes will fit the bill! I’ve got a cheat sheet below the featured posts if you’re still not sure.

This week’s I’m featuring The Great Yogurt Experiment from Patty of Loving Our Guts. She is making yogurt in a selection of different jars, in order to figure out if the jar you use really makes a difference in how your yogurt tastes! See how week 1 of Patty’s experiment turned out!

If you have an SCD or Paleo recipe, it is most likely GAPS Legal or can very easily be modified to fit into the GAPS diet! The short version is that GAPS legal recipes are:

  • All real food
  • Grain-Free (even alternate grains like quinoa and amaranth are excluded)
  • Starchy veg free (no potatoes of any kind)
  • The only sweeteners used are honey and fruit
  • Only use aged cheeses such as parmesan, gouda, or cheddar, not fresh cheeses such as mozzarella or ricotta
  • Adheres to the Weston A. Price Foundation’s principles.

If your recipe includes other ingredients which can be subbed with GAPS legal ingredients, please make a note of that in your recipe. If you’re unsure about a recipe, go ahead and email me at and ask! I’m more than glad to check it out and suggest modifications if needed.

Don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to recipes, though! We also love to see book reviews, cooking tips and strategies, recovery and/or setback stories, etc. Anything you think will help other folks on the GAPS diet is welcome, even if it’s not a glowing review!

A couple of rules:

  1. Please link back to this post somewhere in the body of your post.
  2. Make sure you post a link to your post, not to the front page of your blog.
  3. Leave a comment saying what you’ve shared!
  4. By participating, you agree that I may use an image from your post if I decide to featured your post.

Thanks for participating! Please share on facebook, twitter, or wherever else you like! Remember, the “name” field is for is the name of your post, not your name!
