Although this book did not work out for my family's lifestyle, I do highly recommend this book to others looking to heal their body with the use of food. The book is well written, educational, and beautifully illustrated. I think it can help many. :)

However...I purchased this book in hopes to heal my sons eczema.

The book is heavy on the meats and dairy. We don't enjoy eating very much meat, my son is allergic to eggs, and dairy happens to be what he is sensitive towards.

I ultimately changed o

In my line of work selling grassfed meat, I am always crossing paths with folks who are on a quest to regain their health through nutrient-dense foods. Those hardest hit by the effects of the Standard American Diet are often faced with the GAPS diet (an acronym for Gut And Psychology Syndrome). This diet is advocated for everything from diabetes and epilepsy to autism spectrum disorders, food sensitivities, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and myriad autoimmune diseases. The basic premise i ...more

First off, this is a very beautiful cookbook. The pictures are colorful, vibrant, and appropriately placed near the actual recipe.

The recipes and instructions are found on the same page. It drives me nuts when the ingredients to a recipe are on one page, and the directions are on a separate page.

From a general population perspective, this makes it easy to use.

Now if you follow GAPS, you will love this. If you are new to GAPS, and wonder what I am referring to, read the book to le

The authors did an amazing job of taking a complex and confusing and unpalatable diet plan and organizing it in a way that made sense and had surprisingly appetizing recipes. The pictures are gorgeous, the anecdotes are helpful, and the lists of allowed foods for each stage are indispensable. They even detail how to make your own yogurt, almond/coconut flours, and nut butters. I highly recommend this cookbook for those interested in the GAPS Diet plan.

I love this cookbook! As I went through the initial stages of GAPS Intro, I referred to this book again and again for tips and recipes, and I continue to do so, even on the full GAPS diet. Some recipes I cook according to the instructions, some I use as a jumping off point for my own ideas, but all are helpful and delicious.

The information is explicit, easy to understand, and delightfully illustrated. A must have for people who realize they need to heal their gut. The GAPS book tells why one needs to heal their gut. This book tells how.

Some recipies were not as strict as I wanted for the Intro Stages, but overall a very useful book. I bought a copy for my very own! The photos and instructions are easy to follow and very helpful.

not very allergy-friendly (many recipes use eggs, nuts, coconut, dairy) but perhaps this will help someone else.

I liked this book. Good recipes and explanations of cooking methods. Full color pics of step by step directions for making broth, soaking nuts, making nut milk, fermenting, making butter, etc..
I think having this book on hand would be good for those who are pursuing a traditional foods diet or even for those meat eaters who have had a bout of the intestinal flu and need some gentle foods while healing. I would keep this on hand just for reference.
