Our GAPS Anniversary Celebration! {Plus GIVEAWAY}


Wow. It's hard to believe that it's been ONE YEAR already since our family started the GAPS diet!

It almost feels like we've been eating this way for years, since the time has flown by as we've gotten more and more comfortable with making GAPS-friendly food choices. While I am looking forward to slowly adding more foods back into our diet over the next year, I am also quite confident that our diet will not change drastically. We are loving how we feel and the foods we eat!

As long as there are no long-lasting food intolerances or other health concerns, I will likely start re-introducing sweet potatoes, rice and some dairy back into our meals in early 2015. With the help of our naturopathic doctor, we are learning more and more about our bodies and what they need to function optimally.

If you've been following along on our journey, then you know that there have been ups and downs. You can check out our family progress reports here.

But what I am really excited to share is what's happening in another family's life! Listen to this update about Laura's 2 year old son who is on the autism spectrum:

“2 weeks into GAPS, and today [my son] took my hand, brought me to the fridge and put my hand on the peanut butter to “ask” for some, nodded his head when I asked him if he wanted honey at breakfast, and later dug his own shoes out of the shoe bucket (out of dozens of mixed up pairs) and tried to put them on by himself! I’m so thankful for huge leaps!”

Isn't that fantastic?!

Every story I read like that motivates and inspires me to keep doing what I am doing. Food really does play a significant role in our health and our children's futures.
