Full GAPS - Recipe Index

Here are some recipes that will work for Full.  I have not tried them all, but as we do I'll post reviews.  I have done my best to make sure that everything works for this stage, however, I may have made mistakes.  Let me know if you find any!

Some of the recipes come from the Reversing Food Allergies (RFA) class, but you can find similar recipes online.  I have linked to alternatives when possible.  Other recipes come from an ebook I purchased from Home, Health and Happiness (HHH) which gives you recipes and lists and such for the GAPS intro diet. 

Please let me know if you have any recipes or ideas to contribute to this stage.  Be sure to read the comments when looking at recipes - there are often great tips and ideas for variations.

Remember that all the recipes from all the Stages can still be used.

Thai Coconut Soup or this (RFA) - homemade coconut milk & fish sauce, honey instead of agave, no grapeseed oil for sautéing
Thai Lemongrass Soup (RFA)
Minestrone Soup (RFA) - you could take any minestrone recipe & adapt to GAPS
Lentil Soup (RFA) - as w/above, you can modify any lentil soup recipe
Coconut flour blueberry muffins (RFA) - baking soda is not allowed, try baking w/out
Easy Eggs Benedict (RFA)
Grain-free Granola or this (RFA) - there are a lot of grain-free granola recipes if you search
Chinese Orange Chicken (RFA)
Chicken Nuggets - any recipe you like can now be baked or fried w/nut or coconut flour

You can now eat all GAPS legal foods, but go slowly in introducing them.

Keep drinking broth and eating soups.

I haven't been able to find if vanilla is legal or not.  If anyone can site a reference for me, please let me know!

A word about coconut flour.  I know a lot of GAPS people use coconut flour often, but it's not specifically listed (dried coconut is on the list).  The only information I can find was from Gaps Guide online which reads "Caution: Coconut flour, a post-intro food, is extremely fibrous and suitable only for those who’ve experienced sufficient healing." 

I have a similar problem with coconut oil.  It's listed as approved and Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride talks about it frequently, but there are no guidelines as to when to bring it into the diet.
