    Hi Melanie

    When I make chicken broth I use 2x chicken carcasses and 1x whole chicken plus vegetable this makes a flavourful broth which we love but is quite expensive. Do you recommend reusing bones for a second or more broths or using a slow cooker that we can keep adding water to stretch out and economise the bones?

    Ps I love your ‘imperfect’ but doing it approach – that’s progress!

      Hi Christina,

      Great question.

      I often use bones more than once, and this is a good way to stretch them, so yes!

      How much broth are you making with all those chicken carcasses?

    Hi Melanie

    Thanks for the tip on reusing bones for stock. To answer your question I make about 4.5 Litres with the 3x chickens.

    I am very inspired and new to kefir making. I recently went from using organic cows milk to raw goats milk. It seems to have gone right to whey in 26 or so hours. I guess this is goat whey!? Can I use this as a probiotic food and how many might I use it.

    For my chicken meat stock I do not have a roasting pan Insta pot etc. for my first chicken I simply boiled it on the stove top. I now have a pan that I could do it in the oven but no top. Any suggestion on the best way within those tools available?

      Hi Winnie,

      Thanks for the question. Bloating can be from a number of different causes, so you’ll need to experiment a bit.

      Often what I see in my GAPS clients is bloating coming from an overgrowth of yeast in the stomach environment, or often it is from SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).

      You want to work on digestion from the North to the South. There is a ton of information about this in my Digestive Supplements Mini Class – http://honestbody.com/digestive-supplements/

      I would also suggest that you try beet kvass, 1-2 tablespoons at each meal, to start.

    Do you have a recipe for how to make water keifer? Is there a brand of water keifer you recommend?

    What is recommended for the detox baths? Also, are hempseed and chia seeds GAPS legal?

    Thanks!

      Hello Winnie,
      I would recommend rotating the following ingredients for detox baths:

      • 1 cup Epsom salts
      • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
      • 1 cup baking soda
      • 1 cup sea salt
      • 1/2 cup powdered seaweed (I recommend Aalgo)

      Chia & hempseeds are allowed on Full GAPS when digestion is running smoothly.

      Thanks,

      Melanie

    If you can’t bring yourself to eat the yolks whipped and uncooked in the custard, is it okay to cook the custard in a ramekin bath in water? Have you tried it? Also, is no fruit allowed during the intro phase? Thanks for everything!

      Hi Winnie,

      Until Stage 3, the yolks need to be raw (they are the easiest to digest in that form).

      If you’ve not tried Russian custards before, you may be pleasantly surprised. Whipped for 2 minutes with honey makes them a different texture altogether.

      The first fruit on Intro is introduced in small amounts via fresh-pressed juicing on Stage 4, and also fermented fruit kvass is allowed.

      Homemade cooked applesauce on Stage 5, and then in Stage 6, you can begin to add in more fruits & raw vegetables.
