Bone Broth Part 2 I no longer bring broth to a full boil. I let it rise to a simmer and then simmer for eight to 24 hours. I rarely simmer over 16 hours. I also now cook it in a large covered Visions glass pot on the stove to reduce contaminants from the crock pot. The broth does not cook down much when using a Visions glass pot.

I am amazed at how I got off track with my GAPS-ish/healthy eating. I have a great recipe for nutballs that are super yummy. Hey, they are GAPS friendly. I can eat a lot of them! Then there was the new cookie that I morphed from a friend's recipe. OH MY GOSH! So delicious - raw and baked. Yep - it is GAPS friendly, so I can eat lots of those too.
A few more items to consider. I make all this amazing food. I prepare lunch for Ryan. It all tastes good. I nibble here and there.
And then there are the nut cookies for later.
I have no food cravings, but I eat them anyway because they taste good!
Nine pounds later, nine pounds past my "I will not weigh more than 130 pounds when I am not pregnant" weight limit, I tipped the scale at 139!!! Crimeny! Geez! And may other words I won't type.
So I cut the nuts and snacking out and quickly dropped five pounds in just over a week.
Then a new round of people were considering the GAPS diet and they were thinking about the deprivation they would face. My response to help them get started: "Oh, no, there is no deprivation - let me make you some nut cookies!" What a loaded gun! Following GAPS and eating the cookies in moderation is totally fine, but they can sneak up and ambush the unsuspecting. Clearly I was too cavalier about my supposed mastery of food.
So, to my new GAPS friends, I will post the recipes later today, but BE WARNED. That "too much of anything" saying is true!

Price Foundation disseminates the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated non-industrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets.
