Many of my clients struggle with various gut problems. To these individuals, I suggest introducing the GAPS Nutritional Program which I find to be the most effective program for gut healing. The power of this program lies in the relatively strict diet protocol and in the essential daily lifestyle habits that support the natural detoxification process.
As a nutritionist, I need to make sure that the client will be able to implement the protocol with success. Therefore, I start with assessing the person's diet and lifestyle habits and later move to discussing the details of transitioning into the program.
The greatest challenge for many of my GAPS-clients is the complete removal of grains from their diet. Many of them cannot imagine preparing their meals without some sort of grain. No bread? No cookies or muffins? No rice or pasta? Not even gluten-free grains? I will be starving all the time!
Once we talk a bit more about it, - I explain that there are alternative food choices, they can enjoy bread, pancakes and baked goods on the protocol which are simply made from grain-free flours, - this helps them open up to these diet adjustments. Almond flour, coconut flour and various seed flours are all great ingredients for baking nutritious GAPS-friendly goodies such as the Grain-Free Pumpkin Seed Bread and the Carrot Pecan Breakfast Bars (to make it GAPS-approved, use honey instead of maple syrup) found on my Instagram.
