“Good news! Monica Corrado’s The Complete Cooking Techniques for the GAPS Diet is now available in a revised and expanded second edition. That means there is more: more information, more recommendations, more tips and tweaks, and more clarifications on how to implement the GAPS healing protocol.
Developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride (Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, ADD, Dyslexia, ADHD, Depression, Schizophrenia), the GAPS diet is a groundbreaking way of treating disorders in the gut that are linked to a range of medical conditions that have baffled doctors for years, including autism spectrum disorder and ADHD. To the uninitiated, the diet can seem too difficult to approach, let alone master.
Enter this masterclass in cooking “GAPS-style.” Along with step by step instructions on Dr. Campbell’s original recipes and techniques, there is plenty of information you won’t find anywhere else. This is the guide on how to do GAPS—not just the foods you eat, but when, how, and why you eat them.
As the title says, The Complete Cooking Techniques is a complete compilation of the original Cooking Techniques series. With these the four slim books, Monica first introduced readers to the essential food pillars of the GAPS diet:
- Part I: Meat Stock and Bone Broth. Though stock and broth are essential foods in the GAPS protocol, too many people mix them up, much to the detriment of their health. This book helps set the record straight.
- Part II:Culturing Dairy. The second volume showcases time-honored recipes and techniques for preparing yogurt, kefir, butter, and many other GAPS superfoods. Even those with dairy sensitivities or allergies can learn how to incorporate cultured dairy into their diet by following Monica’s Dairy Introduction Protocol.
- Part III: Lacto-Fermentation. Addressing the current epidemic of abnormal gut flora in modern humans, the third book seeks to resurrect the nearly forgotten skill of lacto-fermentation. As Monica says, lacto-ferments are powerful foods.
- Part IV: Seeds (Nuts, Seeds, Beans, and Grains). The last book in the series turns to traditional techniques such as soaking, sprouting, and fermenting that can unlock the immense nutritional power hidden away in nuts and seeds.
Now Monica has expanded on these four volumes with new recipes as well as plenty of information on life after GAPS, common GAPS questions, and a Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion table for international readers. This second edition is also bookended with two new sections, starting with a handy list of ingredients and equipment that helps GAPS-sters see what they need right up front, and concluding with an index that makes navigating the book easier than ever.
The print edition comes in a wire-bound hardcover that lays flat on the counter as you cook (so there is no more need to keep your recipe open with with a variety of heavy objects). With all of the new material, this will come in handy.
Currently being translated into several languages worldwide, this is more than a simple collection of recipes—it is the textbook for GAPS teachers and laypeople alike. It is a required text for those enrolled in Dr. Campbell McBride’s Certified GAPS Practitioner and Certified GAPS Coach training programs, which helps certified practitioners and coaches deepen their knowledge and teach others.
The Complete Cooking Techniques for the GAPS Diet is broad in scope, deep in knowledge, and essential in today’s nutritional landscape.
