Dairy Kefir

Dairy Kefir
I love Dairy Kefir because it is so easy to make and so nourishing. Some people stop making yoghurt once they start kefir because of this. I make both to provide a more diverse range of beneficial bacteria in our diet. The probiotics in kefir are stronger than yoghurt. They are a symbiotic colony of yeast and bacteria working in harmony to aid digestion and take control of pathogens. Start slow on Kefir as you may have a die off reaction as the colony invades and takes over the pathogens. It’s worth pushing through die off as you’ll soon reap the benefits of a healthier gut.

Crispy Chicken Skins & Drippings

IMG_7508 - Copy

My boy is absolutely mad for fat and skin. He loves these chips. They are so much healthier than the packet trans fatty acid crisps at the shops and they are so simple to make. I get my organic chicken skins frozen from my local butcher for $8.99/kg.  They save the skins from skinless cuts like chicken breast, thighs and legs that would otherwise be wasted, shame.  This is a great way to use the whole bird, make some crisps and get some liquid gold organic dripping.  Read more about why we eat fats here under the fat paragraph.

Dairy Yoghurt

IMG_6968 We love our natural dairy yoghurt. Most people can tolerate 24 hour cultured dairy as it’s virtually lactose free and the casein is pre-digested. I make it in bulk, 3 L at a time, using my small slow cooker and dehydrator. I make so much, so I can drip half to make Labnah and Whey. Continue Reading →

Pork & Yellow Squash Hotpot

I first made this dish while on Stage 2 GAPS intro.  It is such a simple gorgeous meal that it is now a regular in our house. I have made it in the morning and left all day in the slow cooker or made quickly within one hour of serving on the stove. It’s very easy, full of healing ginger, garlic, broth, coriander and plenty of fat. According to Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, the more fat the patient consumes the faster they will heal.

Chicken & Asparagus Risotto

This is a great comfort food recipe for GAPSters and other grain free dieters missing their rice. I first made this dish while on GAPS intro and found it was easier and quicker than conventional risotto as there was not sweating over the stove stirring and less washing up as it’s a one pot & vitamix dish.
