The GAPS diet, short for Gut & Psychology Syndrome and Gut & Physiology Syndrome is natural approach to reduce inflammation, support the gut lining, and restore microbial diversity. Soups are a prominent section of GAPS recipes. Marisa Tolsma of Bumblebee Apothecary has shared her GAPS Diet Beef Soup Recipe for us to try! Whether you follow the GAPS protocol or not, this soup is super delicious. 

“If you’re following the GAPS diet, you need a lot of GAPS intro soup recipes. My GAPS diet beef soup recipe is definitely one you’ll want to know how to make. GAPS recipes often need to be fast and easy. Those first stages of GAPS intro are a big adjustment for many people. I love this recipe because it couldn’t be easier to make, and it definitely checks all the boxes for nourishment and flavor. This soup also works as a paleo beef stew recipe. By tweaking what vegetables you use, it can also work great for anyone needing keto GAPS recipes.

Another thing I love about this GAPS diet beef soup recipe is that it is truly a one dish meal. You have your meat, vegetables, healthy fat, and meat stock all in one dish. All you have to do is add some probiotic food, and enjoy. So easy!”

USWM Shopping List: Beef Bones


  • Meaty beef bones, such as a combination of shanks, ribs, knuckle bones, and marrow bones
  • 1 onion
  • Vegetables, such as carrots, peas, turnips, leeks
  • Filtered water
  • 1-2 TBSP peppercorns
  • Mineral salt to taste, such as Celtic sea salt or Baja gold


  1. Place beef bones in a dutch oven.
  2. Add chopped onion, mineral salt to taste, and peppercorns (I like to add the peppercorns in a metal tea strainer).
  3. Add filtered water to cover.
  4. Bake at 300ºF for 5 hours.
  5. Add chopped vegetables.
  6. Bake at 300ºF for 1 hour.
  7. At this point, the vegetables should be very soft and the meat should fall off the bone. Add pressed garlic to meat stock before serving.
  8. Serve meat, bone marrow, vegetables, and meat stock together in bowls with some probiotic food.
