Gut and Psychology Syndrome DVD

I love this DVD. This is a recording of Dr. Natasha speaking at the Wise Traditions Michigan Conference on Children’s Health on September 29th, 2007. It’s a classic where she explains GAPS and how it occurs.


Cooking with GAPS DVD Set

This is the Official GAPS DVD set where Caroline Barringer and Kris Gustafson do a great job demonstrating how to make meat stock, cultured dairy like yogurt and sour cream, sauerkraut (very important), and later stage Introduction Diet recipes. These DVD’s will really take the mystery out of GAPS Diet food preparation.


The Complete Cooking Techniques for the GAPS Diet

Monica Corrado, MA, CNC, CGP is a teaching chef, certified nutrition consultant and certified GAPS practitioner. Dubbed “the GAPS Chef”, Monica teaches GAPS cooking in the GAPS Practitioner training with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. This is a must have reference book that does a great job explaining the Intro Diet and laying out step-by-step preparation of all GAPS stages foods. Nice explanation of the difference between meat stock and bone broth, nice charts on how long to simmer different meat types when making meat stock, and other helpful charts for culturing dairy and soaking nuts and seeds.
