Your ‘Family’ Paleo Potluck. Our kids come first. We’re heading to Mississauga!

This is more then just a gluten and sugar-free event.

What is GAPS? What are the similarities with the Paleo Diet? How is it different?

 The Gut and Psychology Syndrome -Natasha Campbell-McBride author of several books including:

Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression, Schizophrenia (Paperback – Nov[masked]) makes the very imprtant point that many of our diseases are dietary and developed as a result of what we have done with the food chain.  

How do you build a healthy gut flora?  What is a 30 day menu Plan for GAPS?

What are some great ideas for ferments, fermenting and fermented cod liver oil?

Is the Bio-Kult Probiotic better then others? Why?

 

Like the Paleo Diet, the GAPS Diet prohibits grains. However, dairy foods are allowed on the GAPS Diet, even from the very beginning of the diet (in the beginning, it is recommended to start with ghee and then kefir/yogurt and then sour cream). It depends on whether or not the patient can tolerate dairy foods, and some dairy foods are easier to digest than others so there is a process as far as how to introduce them.

The strict GAPS diet should be adhered to for at least 1.5 – 2 years. Depending on the severity of the condition, some people recover quicker, others take much longer.

Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride  instructions for following the GAPS Diet on her website,  says that when we come off the GAPS Diet (because we are expected to come off of it — it’s not a lifelong diet), we can introduce potatoes and grains. Do people on Gaps do that or do they move on to lifelong diets like the Paleo Diet?

 

This will be way more interesting. As you know our children love their ‘junk foods', unless we have taught them well. This Meetup is meant to get us searching for those recipes which will really turn our kids into Paleo Lovers. The latest news is that schools with sugar-free zones have 23% greater scores, less absences and less violence, along with less obesity. That in itself is tremendous.

 As parents we know that the Paleo diet keeps ‘foods' which create multiple health problems at bay. This in turn creates very healthy teens and adults, who usually lead a very productive and active lifestyle. 

So here's the challenge: You must think of a potluck item to bring which is free of  any of the following:

               grains,

             legumes,

             sugar

            dairy for this most ‘Paleo' of family potlucks.

Looking forward to your creations.

Remember they have to be child friendly recipes!
