Grain-Free Tuesdays 12

Welcome back to Grain-Free Tuesdays! We are very happy to see you again. This linky is a resource for folks on the GAPS/SCD or Paleo diets so please only post recipes and content that follows the guidelines for those diets. This means NO sugar of any kind, only honey and fruits.

A grain-free diet is not only very good for you but also a practical way to boycott industrial agriculture and support family farms. Most processed foods contain some kind of grain–it is a cheap filler, allowing the manufacturers to make more profit. A grain-free diet 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 just love all the amazing and creative ways people are discovering for cooking grain-free. It is not only fun but gets you to think out of the box.

Anyone not on a grain-free diet, please join us for World Food Thursdays and celebrate the delicious diversity of foods around the globe.

I finally got around to trying out Mrs Ed’s recipe for Garlic-Cheddar rolls yesterday and I am just loving them, my recipe came out a little different as I didn’t have all the ingredients and my nut grinder broke when I was nearly done, so they were pretty chunky, very tasty though!

I am currently drooling over this recipe for a GAPS-friendly version of Raspberry Ripple Frozen Yogurt as well as The Ultimate Roast Chicken. I finally have a source of good pastured bones for my stocks, which was one of my New Year’s resolutions. It really pays off. I am awestruck by the amount of gelatin in the broth. I have also just finished rendering a big batch of lard.

I invite all of you to join us at the SCD/GAPS facebook community and get involved! Share links to your sites as a resource for other people. The GAPS diet has been called the mother of all diets. It helps with everything from radiation to cancer to allergies to digestive issues, and lets not forget how great it is for balancing moods. Lots of folks these days are on a gluten-free diet which isn’t doing the trick. Lets help spread the word, the more people who are functioning optimally without the neurotic behavior caused by processed diets, the better chance we have for healing the world and creating peace.

I will also be retweeting articles posted here with the hashtag #grainfree. This gives them the opportunity to show up in the Grain-Free Daily, so don’t forget to retweet — and get yourself in the paper by using the hashtag #grainfree.

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. Fermented foods are highly encouraged!

Please share your favorite grain-free or fermentation recipes, 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.

Please be sure to link back to this post and leave us a comment at the bottom.

Please just share one link each week.

Please also tweet, stumble, digg and/or share this post on facebook–I will also share your links. In the meantime, happy cooking, eating and connecting with local farmers 🙂

The Linky will open late Monday evening and be open all week. Happy Eating! May your gut flora be as diverse, plentiful and beautiful as the stars in the sky and the flowers on the earth.

    Spaghetti squash easy-fast-food.

    For starters, I want to make #1 up there — is that with sweet cherries or sour? I’ll have to make do with frozen. Looks just wonderful.

    Then #2. Oh heck, maybe I’ll have a cook-off and do ’em all! JK.

      Ummm. I love Spaghetti squash, just made some last night with some ox-tail stew. I only learned recently that it can be tossed in the oven whole with a few holes poked in it with a fork or something to release the steam. Worked really well.

      Cherries…sour or sweet are good, but I quite like sour in general…nearly cherry season! Can’t wait…
