The core of GAPS is soup. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Here’s what I’m having for breakfast today:
- Homemade beef stock
- Broccoli florets
- Dried tomatoes We have some from last summer that Kelsy dehydrated. I don’t recommend store-bought. Tomatoes are a nightshade veggie which can be inflammatory. Many people wait to introduce nightshades. When we first did GAPS, we did not introduce nightshades until we were on the full diet.
- Ground beef
- Chili powder or paprika
- Sauerkraut juice
Put beef stock in the pot and salt to taste. Trim broccoli florets so that the fibrous bits are not included, and add to the pot. Add the dried tomatoes. Boil gently. While that is cooking, mix the ground beef with chopped parsley, salt, and a bit of chili powder or paprika. Make into small balls and drop into the pot. Cook until the broccoli is soft and the meat is cooked through. Serve. Let cool slightly in bowl, then add a tablespoon or two of sauerkraut juice.
