Colorful! {GAPS}

Who said GAPS food had to be boring? Here’s a sampling of the condiments that are typically available on our table (clockwise, starting at the top): avocado, sour cream, ghee, sauerkraut, ginger carrots. The chicken in the middle is a salt shaker 🙂

The best spaghetti sauce {GAPS}

spaghetti 1

Tonight we had “spaghetti”, but in our opinion there was no reason for the squash since the sauce was so good! Mom put 2 pounds of organic ground beef (raw, broken up) in a crock pot then covered it with a concoction whipped up in the Vitamix: about 2 cups gelatinous meat stock, some onion, oregano from the garden, and a couple little cans of organic tomato paste. After it had simmered on low for 4-6 hours, she pressed some garlic cloves in it and we ate about an hour later.

Enjoyed with organic avocado and sour cream with live cultures (are you noticing a pattern with how we enjoy our food?)

Hash Browns with no potatoes! {GAPS}

How did I do it?

All I used was:

Celeriac

1 Large Celeriac
Ghee
Sea salt

After washing and peeling the celeriac I ran it through the food processor to grate it.

I melted the ghee in a frying pan over medium heat. When it started bubbling a bit I added the grated celeriac, sautéing it for about ten minutes, then added salt. I watched for it to get soft and then spread it out in the pan letting it sit to get a little brown on the underside. With GAPS you can’t let it get too crunchy (hard to digest) so I watched it carefully and ended up flipping it over after about seven minutes. After letting it brown on the bottom side it was time to serve up!
