Gaps Intro day 11

Today was a bit on the busy side, and our first outing where we needed to take our own food with us. On Friday's we go and visit my mother and pick up our raw milk. Normally mum does lunch for us all, but now we are on the diet we need to take our lunch with us. So I was making all our meats for the day first things this morning. We had breakfast sausages with marrow and carrots, Chicken soup with some cold chicken for lunch, and Quail for dinner, which I put in the slow cooker this morning. Our breakfast sausages this morning were very tasty, we added rosemary and Italian parsley that we had in our garden, my word they were yummy, and for something different I used a cookie cutter to cut the marrow (zucchini) into star shapes. That was Fun.

For me today was the day that I really missed being able to get some take away. Fridays is normally such a late day that usually get take out on the way home, so we can get eating over and done and that children can go to bed. I think it will take a little while to get over this one. Establishing a new routine. I do however feel proud to be able to say that I have cooked every meal that we have had for the last 11 days. :0)

Ben is finding this afternoon hard. He is a bit disappointed that he hasn't seen much progress with his stomach. He is getting used to the food, but just now having a bit of a tantrum about not being able to have a cup of tea again! LOL. Quite funny watching a grown man getting upset about a cup of tea.

Something else that we have been doing to help us on this journey is watching the Youtube courses every so often. Again I highly recommend them.

Well I'm off. Hope you all have a great day/night.


  1. Hi Christina, I recently discovered that beef is one of the top things tested for during allergy testing and i thought of Ben with his stomach pain. Having a very quick look through your entries again it seems that any time you mention a worse time for Ben beef and or beef stock has been eaten just before - I could just be grasping at staws but i thought it would be another thing to look at.

    1. Thanks for that info, we will do an allergy test the next time I make beef stock. His stomach has been improving overall but not as quickly as he would like. I guess we can't fix a problem he has had for over 30 years in 11 days.
