GAPS | Stage 2

jar1The second stage of the GAPS intro diet allows raw or soft boiled egg yolk to be introduced to your diet.

In the past, both my husband and I have shown sensitivity to eggs on food allergy tests so I tried the suggested sensitivity test from in GAPS book. I was a bit skeptical, but followed the directions as placing a drop of the food in question on the inside of your wrist let it dry and leave it there overnight. If you wake up the next day and the area is red and irritated, then do not attempt to introduce that particular food at that time, if there is no reaction, however, you are free to introduce that food.

I had no reaction and happily had my very first raw egg yolk this morning. I mixed it into a warm cup of broth & topped it off with a splash of sauerkraut juice. Not too bad!

Starting week 2 and we feel pretty good. My husbands bloating has dramatically decreased and his skin is clearing up from the dry flakiness he had been experiencing before we started. I, on the other hand, have had some minor skin break outs, which I think are due to the detoxification process my body is going through. I also feel a bit ‘greasy’ from all the broth and meat I have been consuming as these beginning stages have been quite a switch from my normal diet.

Looking forward to the week ahead!
