We have been on the GAP Syndrome diet for a year now. The improvements to our health, immunity, emotional stability and energy levels are remarkable. We owe a lot to Natasha Campbell McBride for her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome.

It’s great to get involved in the recipe bloghop/carnivals that are going on in the blogosphere. These bloghops work really well for recipes and for those of us on the GAP Syndrome or Specific Carbohydrate Diet it is really nice to have some of these unique recipes gathered together in one place. As a result we are starting the Full Moon GAP Syndrome Roundup. Every week we have a Grain-Free Tuesday bloghop–please stop by and join us for that. Link up your favorite GAPS, SCD or paleo recipes, experiences or resources. Once a month we will collect favorites and post them all together on the Full Moon. We want to build the GAPS community so feel free to even just share your website so we can all link up and follow each other on facebook and twitter.
