Hi everyone, i hope you're all happy and well...
For all of you following the SCD, I am just curious how you tackle your sweet tooth? Do you just do a lot of cooking and make legal banana breads/carrot cake etc?
I am trying to stick to this diet, eating a lot of protein, fresh fruit and veg etc…. making the yoghurt…… but I find my biggest weakness is that I crave sugar and when I fall off the wagon its sugar-related (biscuits and sweets). I don’t miss bread at all but the sweet things I miss a lot!
I was honey-drowned carrots last night in a desperate bid! I have started putting saccharin in my tea but too much of it upsets my stomach as all artificial sweeteners do….
I live alone and work full time and hence I don’t do a lot of cooking, so the ready-made sugar foods tempt me. I wouldn’t freeze a lot because my freezer is small and I don’t have a microwave….
I just love their name - fruit leathers, it's like fruit jerky....
I don't have a deydrator so i will try them in the oven, I'll have to do it on a weekend so I will be home, I get obsessive-compusive when it comes to the oven being on while I'm not at home (living-alone-syndrome).....
I think pears and apples would be nice! Or apples and strawberries, since they're so cheap here at the moment..... this sounds like such a great idea, and I don't mind if they go brown, its the taste that counts!
Ivy, thanks for posting that link. I've made the recipe and the best fruit, I find, is fresh apricots - we substituted honey for the sugar in the recipe.
