Compilation of Soups

I told myself I was going to adhere to this thing called the GAPS diet for gut rehabilitation as an experiment on myself for one year, perhaps coming off for birthday and holidays.  I started June 22, 2012 and finally deviated on Christmas Eve and Christmas (2012).  Although I felt much worse eating my normal Christmas foods, this deviant felt relieved that all the fuss I’m going through on this non-research backed diet has real benefits for me.  Validation that the hard work is worth it.  If nothing else, GAPS has allowed me to pinpoint food intolerances I never would have suspected (egg whites) and to hammer down ones that I did suspect (dairy).  I will continue persevering for at least one year, perhaps longer, to see if the GAPS diet really might help eliminate food intolerances, allowing my body to heal and seal my gut.  I’m a stay-at-home mom now.  I’ve got time on my hands–right?  Not quite right.

Soups, made with homemade broths, form a backbone of the GAPS “gut rehab” program.  I love them because right now it continues to be way well below freezing where I live.  Plus it allows me to get lots of vegetables into myself and my family.  These are all soups we have made since Christmas, trying to reset the almond-flour and honey overdose.  I’ve compiled them here all in one post, and I will periodically update it as we make new soups.

Vegetables, vegetables, vegetables!
