GAPS Binder: Intro Diet Recipes {Stage 6}

October 7, 2012 by Brandy Vencel

I don’t really have a list of recipes for Stage 6–I don’t even have a pinboard!–but I thought I should quickly explain why. Stage 6 just doesn’t add much. Generally, you can try raw peeled apple {peels are for Full GAPS}, you can be more liberal with your raw honey {as a topping on your pancakes, for example}, and you can consume more of the baked goods.

For me, this mainly meant that I served my children peeled apple slices for snack one day to see how they did, and then I made more pancakes and more often. I’m trying to think if I really tried any new “baked goods” and I can’t think of any. It was just more of the same.

I have four pinboards that you may or may not be interested in. These are the ones I’m regularly adding to.

  • GAPS Diet Recipes {these should all be for Full GAPS}
  • Fermented Food Recipes {eventually, you want to consume a lot of these, and I think variety is helpful for this…I’m trying the mayonnaise this week!}
  • GAPS Resources {this is where I put informational-type links that explain the diet, how it works, or suggest tweaks}
  • GAPS Snacks
In addition to this, you might want to pick up the best of the GAPS books, if you haven’t already:

  • Gut and Psychology Syndrome: This is the real deal, actual GAPS book that started it all. I’ve read it, and it’s worth reading if you want to know what you’re supposed to be doing…and why.
  • The Heal Your Gut Cookbook: The original GAPS creator, Natasha Campbell-McBride had a hand in creating this cookbook, so you know it’s really safe.
  • GAPS Guide: Endorsed by Natasha Campbell-McBride, this step-by-step guide is easier to understand than the original book.
This isn’t the last post I’ll ever write on GAPS, I don’t think, but I think I’ve covered the answers to most of the questions I received via my contact form. If not, feel free to harass me further!
Oh! Some of you have asked where we are at in the diet. The short answer is that we are easing into Full GAPS. We’ve added lots of fruit. We’re stuck on no dairy right now. I’m trying not to forget to serve lots of broth or broth-based soups every single day. It’s fine. It’s doable. And we’re seeing improvements, as I’ve mentioned before.
Someday I’ll talk about combining GAPS with NAET. How’s that for a teaser?

    Absolutely loved your comment regards combining GAPS with NAET. I do this also. And too, have learned kinesiology…so I can test myself to see what foods my body will accept during each stage! I could not move to avocado until Stage 4, and other foods that appeared acceptable in Stage 2 my body has still not cleared me for.
