Bored on the GAPS Diet: GAPS Party Drink Recipe to the Rescue!
Chances are that you are going to get bored on the GAPS Diet. In fact, this phenomenon is almost guaranteed! Especially on the GAPS Introduction Protocol, with every food needing to be cooked in meat stock and limiting your fibrous vegetables, your meals can start to get repetitive. But have no fear, GAPS Party Drink is here!
GAPS Party Drink boasts not only to be fun and delicious, but it also helps keep your energy levels up, maintain your meat stock intake, and mitigate die-off reactions. This drink saves people with a higher carbohydrate need and also serves as a base for soups after you include additional meat and veggies.
For this GAPS Party Drink you will need:
- 1 quart meat stock of your choice
- 1 medium-sized beet
- 8 medium-sized carrots
- 1 large onion
- 3-4 tsp sea salt (depending on the saltiness of your broth)
- optional: animal fat or coconut oil
To start, coarsely chop all of your veggies. Add beets to your meat stock and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn down your concoction to a simmer for 20 minutes. Then add carrots, onion, and sea salt. Bring to a boil again and then simmer for an additional 20 minutes. Blend. Add animal fat to your serving if you desire and enjoy.
This recipe yields about 2 quarts, or 8 cups of GAPS Party Drink. It takes about 40 minutes to make from start to finish, however there is time in between to read, write, finish chores, clean, etc.
