The Nourished Kitchen Book Review


What do families on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet need more than anything?

A personal chef? Well, yes.

But what they need next is new ideas and inspiration for GAPS approved recipes!

That’s where The Nourished Kitchen, Farm-to-Table recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle is a lifesaver.  Jenny, of Nourished Kitchen, has put together this beautiful amazing cookbook with tons of inspirations for everything the GAPS foodie needs!

Nourished Kitchen Book Review


This 313 page cookbook contains inspiring recipes that are designed around what you can grow yourself at home or in a community garden, find at farmers markets, and source from local ranchers.  Jenny uses healthy fats, proteins, and carbs to create beautiful dishes, and the pictures make you want to leave your cookbook propped open in the kitchen at all times (which I plan on doing!)

I love how Jenny combines flavors, just listen to the titles of some of these:

  • Roasted Tomato Salad with Mint
  • Horseradish, Apple, and Beetroot Relish
  • Spiced Lentil Soup with Roasted Tomatoes
  • Cider-brined Slow Roasted Chicken
  • Lentils with Sausage and Mustard Greens
  • Kohlrabi, Apple, and Pomegranate Slaw
  • Pan-seared halibut with melted cherry tomatoes and tarragon
  • Brine-pickled radishes with mustard seed and allspice
  • Chicken liver pate with apples and sage
  • Eggs poached in fiery tomato sauce
  • Cucumber Salad with Dill and Kefir

These recipes are just fantastic! And while this isn’t specifically a GAPS-only cookbook, there are hundreds of recipes in here that are either GAPS friendly, or easily adaptable. And once you’re not on GAPS any more, there are delicious gluten free and gluten containing grain recipes that follow Dr. Natasha’s recommendation for diet of whole foods with lots of healthy animal fats to continue good gut health while healed.

The book is over $10 off as part of a pre-sale promotion, purchase at the discounted price now and receive it when it releases on April 15th! Click here to order!

Making Kombucha Sweet and Fizzy (like what you get at the store) with the 2nd Ferment…

Kombucha from the store is a delicious treat, I was wondering if I could make something *just as good* at home. I can! And the good news is that it is super easy, costs very little per batch, and after you buy (or make) the SCOBY, it’s made with what you most likely have on […]

Simple Tandoori Chicken with Curry Cauliflower Rice (GAPS, Paleo) - from Health, Home & Happy.jpg.jpg

Simple Chicken Tandoori with Curry Cauliflower Rice…

This Chicken Tandoori is a simple, 2-step dish sure to please even picky eaters. It’s flavorful but mild, because the Curry Cauliflower is as much a star performer as the meat. If you don’t like curry flavors, simply make extra sauce and a basic cauliflower rice seasoned only with salt and pepper. If you need […]
