GAPS Vanilla Ice Cream and an update

Boy oh boy! It's been a long time since I've posted anything here. Sorry about that, dear internet.

I thought I'd give a bit of an update on my grain free/GAPS/paleo eating that I've been doing this year. I'm almost to the five month mark, as I started on January 17. I can count on less than one hand the number of times of "broken my diet/cheated". Once was with some plantain chips...that one was a brain fart. For some reason I thought they were legal, and then realized they were not. So at most a few bites of that. Another time was a slice of GF paska bread at Pascha. It was not nearly as amazing as I thought it would have been. And I put some soaked Quinoa (technically still grain free, but it is a starch food) in some meatloaf the other evening. I'll live.

So, cheats, but not CHEATS if you know what I mean.

Good results so far:

Less inflammation. My knees no longer hurt when I go up and down stairs.

My hunger/satiety signals se…
