gratitude, day 23

Today was a day of rest, relaxation, far too much TV, and chocolate chip cookies. Yes, cookies. Sweets and other comfort foods are a hard thing to swing on a diet that’s 90% broth-based, but when this recipe for “GAPS legal” cookies popped up on my radar earlier this week, I knew I had to give them a try.

The verdict: so delicious I could cry.

If there’s one thing that the GAPS protocol does (other than, you know, making you healthy) is help you to appreciate what a delight food can be, how very good real food tastes, and how wonderful it is to enjoy even the smallest of treats. I’ll be having broth with breakfast tomorrow for sure, but tonight I’m grateful for these little indulgences.
