Get Going with GAPS – what you learn

The core teaching is known as “Get Going with GAPS” on the GAPS app.  I give you all the culinary tools you need to cook GAPS meals in minutes. You will gain a clear view of the timeless principles of traditional diets. These modules come in easy to digest, bite sized pieces. Get Going with GAPS are the core teachings.  Now INCLUDED in the monthly membership of Timeless Cookery Club

We look at exactly WHAT symptoms the GAPS protocol can help with, WHY we are following this protocol, HOW you can do it, with recipes and ideas, and WHEN it is the right time to start, at which level, according to your symptoms.  At the end of the 3 months you will have every thing you need to practice the GAPS protocol.

A new topic in each of the 12 videos will give you inspiration to implement new habits in the kitchen along with some tried and tested recipes for success.  Watch at your leisure.

amazing opportunity – GAPS retreats

One week retreats in Normandy, northern france 2024

If you are interested in coming on retreat, I can accomodate a couple and two singles with their own bedrooms.  Camping may be an option as there are facilities.  Just get in touch and we can customise a retreat for you.  Maybe you’d like to go on holiday with friends but learn something life changing at the same time?  We usually have one week retreats.

I have held 8 GAPS retreats  from 2020 – 2023.  I have welcomed people from France, Switzerland, England, Belgium and Sweden.  We have seen great results.  We’ve set participants up for success on their GAPS journey.  We’ve giving them confidence to bring new habits into their kitchens and ENJOY themselves as they heal.

Auberville is in Normandy, Northern France.  The beach is a 25 minute walk down a steep cliff path, or a 10 minute drive.  Villers Sur Mer is a weekend holiday destination for Parisians with lovely shops with really good food.   Normandy is the land of milk and honey.

You may travel as foot passengers from Portsmouth to Caen and we can pick you up from the ferry terminal, for a small fee, if that makes life easier.  Newhaven- Dieppe is a good crossing if you’re bringing the car.

During this one week inclusive retreat you will have the opportunity to watch me prepare GAPS foods and help out, if you so wish.  We will eat together.  There will be snacks and foods that you may help yourself to. If you experience a healing crisis and symptoms become challenging, there is a safe space to rest and regenerate, I will help you through it with kitchen remedies.


“I’ve had a difficult relationship with food, suffering with IBS, a very slow digestion system, constipation, stomach upset, polyps, back pain, herniated disk, weak muscles, anger, frustration, dyslexia & anxiety.”

“I’m alway searching for answers, things that will make me feel better with endless hours of research into nutrition, diet, bodily functions, medication, neuroscience, bacteria & gut flora,  then I came across Gaps – How to nourish yourself with nutrient dense food to heal your gut, balance your microbiome & ultimately your body & mind.”

” I’ve eaten such good food, learnt more on fermentation & good bacteria, metal detox, intuitive eating, meridians, tapping, trama release, listening to my wisdom, nurturing my inner child & had endless salt baths”

“I’ve deeply connected with some amazing empowered, strong, sensitive, knowledgeable women & learnt so so much. I am truly grateful for this. Thank you.”  Chrissy Goodings.

Un séjour absolument charmant, le cadre est magnifique, Emma est aux petits soins.  Elle connait très bien le GAPS et ses compétences vont au-delà. Elle saura vous conseiller, vous accompagner et vous montrer comment faire de bons plats GAPS.

Un séjour où l’on a pas à se poser 36 000 questions pour les repas, où l’on peut profiter de la nature et aller se baigner à pieds, dans une ambiance conviviale.  J’ai adoré cette retraite et j’y reviendrai sûrement😊”  Melanie Belkaiss

which translates as:

“An absolutely charming stay, the setting is beautiful, Emma is very attentive. She knows GAPS very well and her skills go beyond that. She will be able to advise you, accompany you and show you how to make good GAPS dishes. A stay where you do not have to ask yourself 36,000 questions before you cook, because Emma cooks for you, where you can enjoy nature and walk to the beach to go swimming, in a friendly atmosphere. I loved this retreat and will surely come back”
