I have no dietary restrictions right now and I'm really really enjoying it. I mean, I never had that many issues but couldn't do the usual suspects: veggie, fruit, nut, popcorn, etc and I can eat those again. So don't take my menu as a suggestion for someone with issues right now =)

We had pulled pork sandwiches, grilled zucchini and squash, herb spoon rolls, and now I'm munching on cantaloupe.

I rarely eat dinner in the traditional sense. Around mid-evening I'll have a a bunch of SCD friendly snacks - such as olives, almondtine crackers with cheese, SCD cheesecake, a nut butter brownie, and sometimes a banana. In actuality, it's probably quite a lot more calories than any dinner I ever ate pre-Crohn's.

Yesterday: Medium-rare dry-aged roast beef, home-made yorkshire puddings, broccoli and cauliflower. To follow, sherry trifle. Yeah, I paid a price and definitely shouldn't have had any of the trifle, but I so rarely get to eat roast beef that it was worth it.

Today: Not had it yet, but we're having chicken enchiladas.

I do sometimes find my appetite is reduced, but I manage to overcome it anyway :p

I had a BBQ chicken pizza that a grilled outside. I haven't been feeling well today, but other than the tiny bit of BBQ sauce it was a pretty mild dinner, just some bread dough, cheese, and chicken. But it tasted pretty good and so far its actually not caused too much trouble.

I'm actually a bit jealous of some of the other dinners. Even the "plain" ones sound good to me, I guess I just crave comfort food.

I ate the same thing for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was safe, so I ate it all day.
Roast chicken sandwich on sourdough bread piled with lettuce and a little honey garlic sauce, and mashed potatoes with butter & sea salt.

Now I'm having a decaf green tea with org. honey and fighting desperately against eating a Wagon Wheel! lol.
