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

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

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

Cinnamon Baked Stuffed Apples

I was in the mood for a warm fruit dessert the other night and was very happy when these hot baked apples came out of the oven. I just wish I would have had time to make some coconut ice cream to go with them. Next time! If you’re still having symptoms, don’t eat the … Continue reading

Banana Milk

I make SCD legal yogurt every week, but occasionally I have a bad batch come out. The yogurt itself isn’t bad, but it has a grainy consistency. I think it happens when I’m pressed for time and I bring the milk to a boil too quickly.  I have a weird issue with the textures of … Continue reading

Tahoe Breakfast Casserole (SCD)

My husband’s family introduced me to a heavenly (and sinful) breakfast they called the Tahoe Breakfast. It’s an egg casserole with hashbrowns, sausage, and cheese baked in; and is delicious. It’s one of my husband’s favorite things to eat during the winter, but is not by any means SCD (or figure) friendly. I substituted the … Continue reading

Carrot Raisin Muffins

A friend of mine passed a recipe on to me for Paleo muffins that came from a CrossFit website. I’ve just recently been acquainted with the Paleo diet, and while there are a few minor differences to SCD, it is really easy to convert Paleo recipes to SCD legal ones. I omitted a couple of … Continue reading

Banana Muffins

  It’s been a long time since I’ve made anything SCD related, let alone posted a recipe. Since being pregnant, the only thing I’ve wanted (and only thing that kept me from getting sick in the mornings!) was good old fashion flour and bread! Luckily, being pregnant virtually makes all of your UC symptoms go … Continue reading
