Paleo Honey Biscuits (GF, SCD, Paleo)

These remind me a little of corn bread, especially if you drizzle some honey on top. I originally made them to go with a roasted chicken and root vegetables, but ended up eating all of the leftovers for breakfast all week! I spread them with a little butter and homemade blueberry preserves. Ingredients (makes 4 … Continue reading

Grain-free Apple Spice Coffee Cake (SCD and Paleo)

We hosted a pre-Thanksgiving brunch at our house a few weeks ago with some of our dear friends and my parents. It was such a great time of fellowship for the adults, and play time for all of the kiddos. Having a brunch is a nice change to the usual dinner party, and truth be … Continue reading

Grain-free and Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie (SCD)

I can eat eggs again! Just in time too, as I couldn’t come up with a pumpkin pie I liked without the use of eggs. The crust on this pie is really simple to make and just presses in to the pie plate instead of having to roll anything out. You can use canned pumpkin … Continue reading

Contest Closed: Weekend Giveaway: The Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook

The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook By Elana Amsterdam When I was first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and told that I should stop eating gluten, I didn’t even know what gluten was! After a lot of research on the subject and countless hours scowering blogs and websites for new recipes, I ended up with about 100 … Continue reading

Easy Trail Mix

I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of soaking and dehydrating nuts prior to eating them, so I thought I would try it for the first time for my trail mix. I purchased all of my raw nuts and seeds at Whole Foods in the bulk section. It is much cheaper than buying a … Continue reading

Fall is in the Air!

Well sort of. On Friday, it was 101 degrees out. Yesterday, we woke up to rain and cloudy skies! It was perfect… until the sun came out and my heavily overdressed body and feet started sweating in the 75 degree weather. Looked at the forecast today and it seems we’ll be in the 90’s again … Continue reading

Berrylicious Baked Oatmeal (Vegan and Gluten Free)

My husband was away on business, so the rest of us didn’t have an agenda yesterday morning and rolled out of bed at 9am (dog included!). The extra sleep felt so glorious! Luckily I made this baked oatmeal the night before so I could continue the lazy morning and not have to worry about preparing … Continue reading

Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Granola

The first day of Autumn is quickly approaching and it’s still 95 degrees where we live! If I wasn’t so much of a wuss in the snow, I’d pick up and move to the East Coast so I could do some leaf peeping and enjoy the Fallidays properly. Have you heard of leaf peeping? We … Continue reading

All About Almond Flour

I’ve had a lot of questions about baking with Almond flour, so I thought I’d do a little intro to it for those of you who have never baked with it before. The obvious reason I use it is because with SCD, I can’t have any grains. There’s also a lot of health benefits, which … Continue reading

Cupcakes. YES, SCD cupcakes

On the surface, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet looks like it’s going to put an end to all things tasteful and sweet, but once you start experimenting a bit, you’ll find that you can still have all of your favorites! Chocolate is my favorite, and unfortunately SCD strictly prohibits any cocoa (even unsweetened), but it does … Continue reading
