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

Dairy Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I usually make my ice cream with coconut milk because the high fat content helps make the ice cream creamy and smooth without the use of additives like xanthan gum.  It tastes delicious but isn’t exactly kind to the waistline.  I wanted to try ice cream with almond milk, since almonds are full of great … Continue reading

Vegan Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

My sister sent a Halloween care package for my son and instead of candy included a few of his favorite Plum Organic baby food packets. She sent the pumpkin banana flavor which were delicious! It gave me an idea to make an adult version for my husband and I, and the little man actually liked … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

I love an easy shake that I can use as a meal replacement in the morning if I’m short on time, or as a snack in the afternoon when I can’t make it to dinnertime. I especially love it when it involves my two favorite super foods: flax and raw cacao. I’ve been using flaxseed … Continue reading

Crock Pot Apple Sauce (refined sugar free)

It’s apple season and our farmer’s market is overflowing with the fruit in all different shapes, sizes and colors. It’s funny, but I look forward to apple season so that I can chat with “the apple man.” I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know his name, but he is the sweetest old man who … Continue reading

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Have I mentioned how much I love Fall? I’m sure I have, because I come from a family who is obsessed with the holidays. Most people are ready to skip on to the Winter holidays (or linger in the Summer sun), but I love this time of the year and wish it would last longer! … 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

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream

I have two vices: ice cream and french fries. When I first went on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I thought I’d never be able to enjoy ice cream again. Then I found Coconut Bliss ice cream at Whole Foods and realized that coconut milk ice cream is even better than the dairy version! This recipe … Continue reading

Coffee Nut Truffles

Snacking on SCD is somewhat difficult, and the nuts and dried fruit tend to get old after a while. However, if you combine the nuts with the dried fruit, and throw in some coffee grounds and raw coconut, you get a delicious and SCD friendly snack that is easy to eat on the go. Because … Continue reading
