I was looking through some old posts and suddenly came across this old draft that for some reason I never published. I don’t know why–sorry about that! I recently spent the week on a biodynamic craniosacral therapy course that was held in downtown Vancouver. I don’t often spend much time down there, but I decided to try out some of the restaurant and cafe’s in the area, figuring I could eat soup and that shouldn’t be so bad. I have been on the GAPS diet for a year now so my digestive tract is in much better condition than it has been in years, but it still needs to be treated gently. Unfortunately I forgot about the microwave. In many of these cafe’s they would instantly zap your wonderful food in a microwave without a second thought for what they were doing. I also forgot that many places don’t make their own stocks, but simply use MSG based imitation bouillon powders. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling too good by the end of the week!
