The Ethical Politics of an Ex-Vegan

May 19, 2011

Have you ever changed your mind? I don't mean about what you want to eat for lunch: I mean Changing Your Mind about something that you've believed for an entire lifetime. Back in early April 2010, I unexpectedly embarked on a crazy journey that challenged me to do this. But before I tell you the whole story, I have to say a little bit about my old religion.

Our Story of Healing with GAPS
by Janice

Our family’s story of healing is all about “baby steps.” You won’t find any drastic, sudden change in our family’s eating habits. We eased into different changes over a lengthy period of time and used a variety of diets to get where we are today.

Our family consists of myself, my husband Shawn, our 6 year old son Sam who is on the autism spectrum, our 4 year old daughter Sarah, and our 2 year old son Andrew. We’re expecting baby #4 to arrive sometime in early June.

I first came to GAPS because of two particularly worrying problems, but in addition, I had various other things suggesting to me that my body was not really well as a whole.

There are six of us on the GAPS diet and each one of us has our own story. This is Frank's Story.

Frank is our fourth child. Before he was conceived, we changed our diet.

Cara Faus knew that something was wrong by the time her daughter was only four months old. Her baby wasn't making eye contact with anyone, ever, and still wasn't rolling over. Cara and her husband kept checking for baby developmental milestones in the coming months, and started to worry, but they also didn't want to be hasty: everyone knows that babies grow on their own timetables. They hoped that their daughter would soon begin developing more “typically,” or at least more happily, and acquire the skills that people take for granted in “normal” children, like playing.
