May 28, 2012 Menu Plan {GAPS, grain-free, gluten-free}

So last week we tried some new things. I’ve been trying to make notes on my Pinterest boards regarding the recipes I try, changes I made, what we liked, etc. However I made a “substitution” this week that was horrid and worth sharing here so you do not make the same mistake.

The low-carb pizza crust calls for baking powder, which is not GAPS legal. In most GAPS baking recipes, baking soda is used. Baking soda is NOT interchangeable for baking powder. I repeat, do NOT do it! It leaves you with this nasty burnt flavor in the back of your throat. Grody.

The muffins we tried last week? Those were all great! So great, in fact, that I gained .8lb last week. Um, yeah. I like muffins.

Alrighty, onto this week’s menu.
