The Lost World of Whey

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.


Most of us know that little rhyme by heart from our childhood, but does anyone actually know what curds and whey are?  That information seems to have been lost in our modern world.  Today I am going to help restore our common knowledge regarding curds and whey.  We’ll have to leave a “tuffet” for another day.

Recent Favorite Recipe Finds

Apple Crisp*

I’ve been a bit AWOL in the blogging world as of late.  Between the beginning of my baton twirling classes, a husband who was sick for three weeks, and an issue with my neck last week, I’m afraid blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.  Never fear, I’ll be getting back to some regular posts again.

During the last few weeks, though, I’ve still been busy in the kitchen trying out some new recipes I’ve found.  I thought it would be fun to share some of my recent discoveries with you.  I hope you give them a try, too! [Read more…]

Hanging with Fellow GAPSters

GAPS Friendly Food

Last week a few of us from the Boulder area who are doing GAPS met up together.  It was quite fun to meet a few other GAPSters in person!  We were able to share some food together, our stories about how we found GAPS and why we’re doing the diet, and helpful tips.

I think we all enjoyed spending time with others who are doing the same diet.  It’s easy to feel like you’re all on your own most of the time.  It was especially helpful for me since everyone else is much farther along on the diet.  I definitely benefited from their experience and helpful ideas!  This was good timing after feeling so overwhelmed earlier in the week.  The other helpful part for me was figuring out what was going wrong with my kefir.  I’m happy to say the advice I received did the trick and my kefir is now back on track.

Fellow GAPSters

If you’re doing the GAPS diet, I’d highly suggest organizing a get together.  We were fortunate to have someone willing to suggest the idea on both the GAPS yahoo group and our local WAPF Boulder Chapter yahoo group and get it all organized.  It was lots of fun and I look forward to our next get together!
