When M and R were born in February of 2009 we had no idea what the Real Food movement was all about.  We thought we ate well but had no problem with diet soda or conventional meat and produce.  We just didn't know.

The twins had a medical condition that didn't allow them to eat food so they survived on a medical formula for the first two years of their lives.  We called it liquid gold, but had no idea how bad it really was for their bodies.

Then God brought us to the GAPS diet.  This diet was the foundation for healing that enabled the children (over time) to tolerate about 2 dozen foods leading up to their Divine healing in September of 2012.


Are you looking to nutrition for hope in treating and healing a health issue?  I highly recommend the GAPS healing protocol.  The GAPS diet is basically a traditional diet with restrictions.  It is much more complicated than that in terms of what it is doing in your body, but I find that to be the simplest way to put it.  The diet is based on bone broth - healing the gut - and allowing the body to do what it was created to do...heal itself.  Amazingly I am aware (firsthand) of many people finding healing in GAPS for a wide variety of ailments from food allergies (as severe as literally not tolerating ANY food), to autism, to seizure disorders and beyond.  The list of conditions that the diet is said to treat is very comprehensive!

Now that we have received healing in our family, we aspire to the dietary guidelines set forth by the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF).  WAPF has developed an alternative to the USDA guidelines. 
Rather than prescribe one-size-fits-all levels of macronutrients—fats, carbohydrates and proteins—the Healthy 4 Life plan recommends nutrient-dense versions of animal and plant foods, with particular emphasis on healthy traditional fats like butter, lard, egg yolks and coconut oil.  The plan does not specify specific amounts of fats or carbohydrates because the need for these macronutrients varies with the individual.  (Nutrition Foundation Releases Dietary Guidelines;  Monday, 31 January 2011 17:00)
WAPF has released a booklet called Healthy 4 Life for anyone wanting to learn how to eat a healthy, traditional diet.
