Camping, hiking, and backpacking adventures…
Those words used to send fear ripping through my chest when I was sick with Celiac disease and just starting SCD.
I never thought I would be able to do things like that on a diet like SCD or GAPS. I felt trapped, like I couldn’t eat anything unless it was cooked right here in my own kitchen.
I thought traveling and camping adventures were something that I’d never do again – that it was just part of being someone healing on the SCD diet.
It only took me a few more years to realize it was ENTIRELY possible, and the only thing standing in the way was ME.
All I needed was a plan and the right checklist of travel foods and I could do anything I wanted… go anywhere I wanted.
And that’s exactly what we have for you today… a step-by-step guide for camping and backpacking on SCD or GAPS.
But this isn’t just the usual guide…
It was put together by one of our community members, Dana, who absolutely blew us away with the detailed guide she put together from her trip into the Canadian wilderness.
Dana went ABOVE and BEYOND to share her best tips for camping and backpacking on SCD/GAPS after successfully hiking and backpacking miles each day (without getting sick or losing more weight).
This was no ordinary road trip. Dana was going deep in the backcountry in Canada, hundreds of miles away from any Whole Foods grocery stores.
NOW, you might not be planning a backpacking trip into Canada, but if Dana can survive in the backcountry with this plan, then I know you can use it when you fly for a few hours to spend time with your in-laws or go camping for a night in the woods nearby. It is my hope that at least one of Dana’s ideas will be useful in your life, and I’ve included a table of contents for quick searching and future reference here… [click to continue…]
