    Great cookbooks for SCD

    I'm assuming these will work for GAPS as well. Both books have some illegal ingredients in some of the recipes so you'll have to substitute, but overall I'm really impressed with the variety in both of these cookbooks. And the recipes. I've made some and YUM. "The Schwarzbein Principle...

    Eggplant Parmesan, SCD

    I don't have a serving size as this really depends on the size of your eggplant. I'm using 2 eggplants next time so I can freeze extras. Eggplant Parmesan 1 large eggplant, peeled and sliced (about half an inch thick) Italian sauce (see recipe below shredded cheddar cheese shredded parmesan...

    Morrocan Stew, SCD

    Adapted to SCD from several recipes online. Absolutely delicious IMO! In spite of some of the ingredients it's neither sweet nor hot but just very flavorful. Adapt as you like per your own tolerances, however, in my opinion the raisin are essential for flavoring. You can remove them if you don't...

    SCD Crunchy Lentil Crackers

    These are based on Indian papadams, which are fried crunchy "crackers" made from bean flour. Here is my SCD version. I used a Vitamix, but you might be able to grind the soaked lentils in a blender or food processor. 2 cups lentils, soaked per SCD instructions 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper 1...

    Too tight clothes cause flare?

    I wore some bathing suit bottoms last week that are too tight. They press right at my belly button. They aren't skin tight, just somewhat uncomfortable. This type of thing has always put me into a flare; cramps, diarrhea, nausea, lethargy. Actually it was that I wore them TWO days in a row that...

    SCD - I just want to complain right now

    I'm doing SCD for the second time and it's harder this time. I'm already tired of "globs" of meat. And no crunchy things. I'm feeling good with my energy even though I'm flaring (I wore my too-tight bathing suit bottoms two days in a row last week and I always flare up if I do something dumb...

    Full-proof homemade mayo- SCD legal

    Use a hand blender instead of a regular blender. It's full-proof. You don't even have to drizzle the oil. The oil is the only thing I ever measure. All other ingredients I just toss in by eye. One egg 2/3 cup oil pinch of salt dry mustard-about half a teaspoon splash of vinegar-about a teaspoon...

    SCD legal things at Whole Foods?

    Hi everyone. I'm going back on SCD after being off it for a couple of years. I was on it for almost a year with complete compliance and then I decide to cheat and that was it. :( I live near a Whole Foods now and was wondering about legal items there. Anything?

    My odd reaction to remission

    So it seems I'm in remission based on my recent colonoscopy and blood work despite my having symptoms still. I saw that there are different types of remission where you can be clinically in remission but still have symptoms. I will talk with my doc about this in my follow-up appt. Anyway, at...

Broiled Gorgonzola Shrimp 1-1/2 lb shrimp (i used raw) 1/2 cup grape tomatoes cut in half 1/2 cup black olives cut in half (you'll have to find legal ones-would be just as good without) 1 ripe avocado, sliced Mix all except avocado together with enough oil to...

    Is nausea a sign of active disease?

    Excluding an acute flare, nausea has been a symptom that comes and goes with me. Right now I'm nauseous all day every day. It may suddenly vanish tomorrow and not return for weeks/months. Sometimes it's a week of nausea, sometimes it's a month. I. hate. it. I do take Zofran. I'm also on Imuran...
