No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

If you're interested in the SCD diet you're probably best off joining one the the various listserv's out there. For myself, when I tried to start the SCD diet I went into a wicked flare. But I wish you luck.

the books for both those diets have tons of recipes. i live off them. they are good. try them and then tweak them to your liking. once you figure out how to eat on those diets, you can tweak basically any recipe to make it acceptable to that diet. that is how i eat.

Hi lilred! I have been really, really happy with two recipe books I purchased--both SCD compliant. They are "Eat Well, Feel Well," by Kendall Conrad, and "Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet," by Raman Prasad. There are even more recipe books of SCD compliant recipes on the market.

Beth's blog is an interesting read. It may pump you up! Click on "Turtle Soup: recipes" for some great free recipes:

http://bethsblog.typepad.com/bethsblog/turtle_soup/index.html

Also, someone here recently posted the website nomorecrohns.com. Both it and the SCD main site have some great recipes.

Good luck to you! I hope it does the trick!!!

I am not familiar with those diets but here is some stuff I like. My husband makes salmon or cod with a dry rub seasoning found at most grocery stores. Rub it on, bake for 20 minutes or so. Since he does the cooking I can't give you the temp.

If you decide against the SCD diet here is a meal that I LOVE but it is pasta based:
Boil bow tie pasta
Add butter or substitute ( I like brummel and brown)
Add olive oil
Add minced garlic
Toss in some pre cooked chicken from the grocery salad bar or the packaged honey flavored chicken from perdue
Add a can of sliced black olives
A jar of diced artichoke hearts
A container of feta cheese
A can of flavored diced tomatoes
Stir -salt and pepper to taste
Devour! I like it hot and cold.

I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

Yes, I ordered our Yogourmet yogurt maker and yogurt starter from Lucy's Kitchen Shop! I spoke with a woman there who was a close personal friend of Elaine Gottschall's. Very sweet lady who told me what a truly wonderful person Elaine was; how dedicated she was to helping those with IBD.

Have you considered making your own SCD legal yogurt? It is considered a keystone of the SCD.

Here is the link from the SCD main site to recipes. I think most are from Raman Prasad (author of one of the books I previously mentioned).

http://www.scdrecipe.com/recipes.html

I see Beth from Beth's Blog only offers a few free recipes now. She's decided to put her collection together into a cookbook to be purchased, and who can blame her? She's put a lot of work into her blog and recipes--might as well make a buck or two! I really like her banana nut muffin recipe, which is no longer available there. If you'd like to have it, email me personally and I will send it to you! It looks better than the banana nut muffin recipe on the scd site above. I make them frequently and they keep in the fridge for two weeks! They're very yummy!

Again, good luck!!! You are armed for the fight!
