GAPS & SCD Recipes

I am very busy working on GAPS Legal Thanksgiving recipes tonight (while my husband is aiming his 22 out the back door at a skunk :)). No time to think about new and wonderful content (sorry), but I thought I would post a list from my old blog. It’s a bunch of GAPS and SCD Legal recipes! If you’ve got great recipes to add to it, post them in the comments! Here’s my old post:



This is for me–recipes to try–to have in one place, that are GAPS friendly (and nut free–that’s a tricky one since GAPS people tend to like nut flours…)…. I’ve been struggling to find foods that look/sound interesting and yummy that will fit this diet….So here’s what I found after some searching (Note that all of these recipes are gluten free, starch free, sugar free, nut free, dairy free except for yogurt and cheese, and totally, in my humble opinion, *healthy*!):

Frittata (find no sugar ham or use sausage!)
Chicken Salad with Tarragon (no sugar cranberries, homemade mayo)
Cobb Salad (honey instead of sugar, homemade dijon)
Eggplant and Red Pepper Terrine (swap Mozzarella for an aged cheese)
Green Beans with Salsa (homemade, no sugar salsa)
Roasted Asparagus
Roasted Carrots
Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti
Chicken Prosciutto (only if Prosciutto has no sugar)
Kabocha Fishcakes (not tuna! Something else!)
Jennie’s Coconut Macaroons (Whole Foods–Trader Joes?)

    Thanks for posting this here…now I don’t have to go back to your other blog to find it –

    A few questions for you:
    Regarding SCD Ketchup: What is granulated garlic? Do you simmer your ingredients or just mix and refrig? I’m leaning more towards mix and refrig since our GAP knowledgeable MD (I know! And MD that is GAPS friendly! I can’t believe she lives in NH!) told us that even raw honey heated turns into essentially sugar in its molecular make up. Your thoughts?

    Regarding the use of coconut milk – what do you use? Do you make your own or buy a brand like SO?

    I love your blog!!! I can’t wait for the holiday recipes!

      Hi again Jenni! 🙂 I need to research this one!! I’ve heard not to bake/heat honey one other time lately. That would be such a change for me! It’s the only sweetener I bake with! 🙂 I canned my ketchup. If you make it to put in the fridge, you don’t need to add the vinegar, and then it makes a very sweet, yummy ketchup (my family prefers it pre-vinegar, but I think it’s necessary for canning! :)).
      I will post my thoughts about honey after I’ve researched it a bit….This is a big one. 🙂 Thanks for asking about it and getting my brain thinking! 🙂

      Granulated garlic is just powdered garlic. In this recipe you COULD use fresh garlic, and just puree it with the other stuff. 🙂
