A Paleo Version of GAPS/SCD/FODMAP!


These acronyms are getting ridiculous, but the title would have been too long if I’d spelled it all out. Here is a link to PaleoHacks.com, and specifically to a single post that will be informative and useful for someone trying to reconcile the various and sundry types of SIBO-focused diets with Paleo. If you understand the headline then you’re probably interested. If you don’t get it, then you’re not one of the cool kids (if by cool kid you mean a miserable sufferer of intestinal issues…)

First of all, here is the link to the post by ChefNikki:

And just to be safe, here is the diet that this caveman-friendly chef created. I’m copying the text, because it seems like a good thing to keep a hard copy of:
