This Menu is great for GAPS, THM, Paleo, SCD, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Gluten Free and Grain Free lifestyles. Yes! It fits all that criteria 🙂
Remember, we have four children! So this is very child friendly. We are currently in Stage 5 GAPS Intro Diet, while working the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle into our diet and routine. (the initials on the side of each meal shows what recipe category it fits into for THM)
This is a very flexible menu that you may adapt to your liking.
(Some recipes are adaptations which will be noted and some directly from sites that will be linked. Those that are my own will soon have recipe postings here…. if it seems a long time coming in a recipe that you’re interested in, just email me and I will get it to you!)

We add in a lot of broth as our liquid and if there is none in that meal we add it to the side.
For THM :
You may easily switch things out, or add a grain as a side dish to the E meals to make it more satisfying to you. I also add a lot of carrots to make E meals more satisfying! As you will note most of my S are Pure or Deep S meals, that is for the strictness of the GAPS diet that we are working as we do THM. I use oils and butters liberally with these S meals to keep up the healing process.
We do have them! I often make smoothies out of coconut milk for my kiddos who are dairy free, I make myself kefir ones. I use strained goat milk yogurt for myself with Slim Belly Jelly or swirls some nut butter with stevia. The fruit is a new addition, so we will go easy on it and mostly work with berries. I also have given them nut butter on a spoon with cherries and will do raw carrots for them too. I do give the kids many seconds, thirds or fourths in meals! Often the meal is our snack too! This is a work in progress as we have many different modes of operating right now.
This menu also reflects the Rotation part of our diet (as best as I can) to keep a close watch on food allergies. The things I know don’t affect, I still need to keep down so they don’t get one by overuse 🙂
Happy Eating and Planning!
