Grain-Free Tuesdays 4
Welcome back to Grain-Free Tuesdays! We are very happy to see you again. If you know the drill please scroll down to the bottom of the page to post your link. This linky is a resource for folks on the GAPS or SCD diets so please only post recipes and content that follows the guidelines for those diets. Thanks!
A couple months ago I did a post called GAPS/SCD Recipe Roundup. My idea was to do it every full moon. I discovered in the process it is best to do a bloghop once a week on a regular basis–this has resulted in Grain-Free Tuesdays! There are lots of excellent bloghops focusing on Real Food, but since we are currently on the GAPS diet, I am personally interested in the grain-free recipes at the moment. There are more and more people going grain-free, either with GAPS, a Paleo diet, the Body Ecology Diet or SCD (specific carbohydrate diet).
The grain-free diet is also a very practical way to boycott industrial agriculture and support family farms since most processed foods contain some kind of grain, as it is a very cheap filler. It is also good for your gut and promotes diversity. There is currently a huge demand for nutritional information, experiences and recipes for folks on the GAPS diet or who are simply grain-free. I myself am one of these people and am eager to try out tasty grain-free recipes. I also just love all the amazing and creative ways that people are discovering for cooking grain-free. It is not only fun but gets you to think out of the box.
This bloghop is based on the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet. It is grain-free, sugar-free and processed-food free–no industrially processed fats either (in particular canola). Please only use honey or fruit as sweeteners, other natural sweeteners such as maple syrup and agave are not used on the GAPS or SCD diets. Natural stevia is OK too. I know the Body Ecology Diet includes quinoa and millet, but I prefer to leave those items out of this particular bloghop as well. Fermented foods are highly encouraged!
I will choose favorites from the month and post them in a roundup on the full moon of every month. If anyone would like to join in hosting this bloghop please let me know!
So go ahead and share your favorite grain-free food, fermented food, GAPS experiences or resources, tips on cooking from scratch, homemade cleaning products or cosmetics, herbal remedies or even your favorite way to detox. Detoxing is a very important part of the GAPS diet, and many people who are on the GAPS diet are sensitive to industrial chemicals and prefer to make their own shampoo, dishwashing detergent and soaps.
