. It can be tough in the beginning, but when you think about
it, you can still eat many of the foods you probably eat right now (meats, veggies, fruits, eggs, cheese, yogurt, nut butters, certain types of beans). You sub honey (or saccharine) for sugar, only eat fermented dairy, and sub nut flours/butters for grains. The hardest thing to get used to is cooking everything, and not being able to just
open a box or order takeout.
Just don't rush into eating advanced foods! Some people dive in and start eating anything on the legal list, like raw fruits and veggies and lots of nut baked goods. Not a good idea! Start by cooking everything (you may even want to puree in the beginning), and hold off on the baked goods until you're feeling better.
Good luck! If you have any SCD questions, either EMom or I should be able to help
