Family-Approved GAPS Diet Recipes And Meal Plan - Real Plans

From learning disabilities to eczema, more parents are turning to GAPS diet recipes for solutions. Otherwise known as the GAPS Diet Recipes For Better Brain Health gut and psychology syndrome diet, the GAPS diet can soothe inflammation and mend a leaky gut, getting rid of a variety of health problems linked to unhappy digestion.

But the GAPS protocol is very specific and sometimes limiting. Which means that cooking GAPS diet recipes can be demanding. And repetitive.

If you’d rather not slave away in the kitchen or bore your kids to tears, you must meal plan. With a week of GAPS diet recipes on your menu, you’ll obsess a little less about food. And you will have more free time. Something moms can always use a little more of, yes?

Below I’ve put some of my favorite GAPS diet recipes into a five-day meal plan. You can download a printable version here. These meals are appropriate for the full GAPS diet.
