Question. Have you use your Instapot to make yogurt? I have recently purchased one and love it, but in their instructions for making yogurt I am not sure to follow them for coconut yogurt or if they only work for cow’s milk. Any help would be appreciated.

Very timely question! My old Instapot was the 6-in-1 so it didn’t have a yogurt making function. It just died two days ago and I ordered the 7-in-1 that does do yogurt (it hasn’t arrived yet). So, while I haven’t tried with the Instapot, I can say that coconut milk yogurt is pretty much the same. Usually incubating for 8-12 hours makes a nice tasting yogurt. You need to add some gelatin or agar to thicken it (unless you want it kefir consistency for drinking and smoothies).

I a writing from a hospital bed – this is my 5th admission to the hospital since October. I am pan-hypopituitary, have Adddison’s and Hashimotos, severe osteoporosis (I’m only 42), Ehler-Danlos syndrome (genetics) and arthritis. I followed the SCD/GAPS protocol religiously for two years. Prior to that, we ate no junk food and have been gluten/casein free. My children and I only got worse. Obviously, under normal circumstances, we would benefit from the autoimmune diet. However, we have some unusual genetics – not only are we positive for MTHFR, we have Glycogen Strorage Disease. this is an inborn error of metabolosm and can’t be changed – believe me I’ve tried. You can do a quick search if you have never heard of this rare genetic disorder. Basically, if we don’t eat regulary and/or take cornstarch, our blood sugar levels drop swiftly, dramatically, and can lead to comas and seizures. One apple or even a few berries will cause a swift drop in blood sugar. We also have the slow-running version of the MAO gene, which means we feel like we are on an MAOi all the time. Bacon is wonderful stuff, but it’s not worth a three day migraine from the amines. Two of us are allergic to eggs. I would appreciate any advice you could offer. My initial thought is to continue what we are doing, but with lesser amounts of sprouted grains and adding more complex carb veggies. My children take corn starch before bed – without it, their blood sugar drops to the 40’s Eliminating it is not an option – The best I can think of at this point is to eliminate the few “bad” food like legumes and increase root veggies. Not sure how that will go over, but we’ll try.

Hi, I’ve looked through a couple of your books and did a search on your website – I am looking for your thoughts/opinion on Maca Powder supplementation. Thank you!

This is just what we need ! Hope this is picked up by more than cable channel I love your email s and books !

Hi Sarah,
I have both your books and your cookbook on AIP. My 53 year old husband came down a year ago with some type of (what the Rhuematologist thinks is RA but his blood work says not. His initial symptoms were swelling and fluid behind his knees. We have been on a restricted diet for the past year with only the past 4 months leaving out the eggs, nuts etc. Before that it was just all grains. He is on Prednisone, Methatrexate, Sulfa something and one other drug. His biggest problem of late has been pain in the bottom pads of his feet and BRAIN Fog which really seems to restrict his thinking and memory sometimes. Do you have an answer for what that Brain Fog is? No one seems to know. How do we know when to wean him off of these nasty drugs and how do we know what he really is sensitive to when he is on them? We are working with a functional Dr. but he does not know to much about the AIP diet even though he sells your book to his clients. We are so Thankful to this doctor as we would be so lost without him. WE are up here in Canada on Vancouver Island. At this point we are looking into Lymes disease. Any answers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your book it is one of the most comprehensive books I have read and I am a Health Coach from Institute of Intergrative Nutrition.
