Kitchen Renovations

So the kitchen in my house is currently under renovations – sort of an SCD nightmare if you ask me. My family has always done a lot of renovations to this old house and we usually just do it ourselves (as in my mom and dad do it, while my bro and I complain) so this time is no different. Right now the cupboards, stove, dishwasher and microwave are out of commission while the fridge is pushed aside but still plugged in. Doesn’t make for easy SCD eating, since I usually cook most of what I eat and don’t eat prepared foods. I plan on using the crockpot tomorrow for a meal.

So last night I ended up eating at a restaurant and for the first time ordered an SCD-legal meal (as far as I know). The picture here shows what I got. The restaurant was a burger place which has lots of specialty toppings and burger patties. So I ordered an elk burger with eggplant, avocado, salsa, and mushrooms. It came with a side order of sweet potato fries which I gave to my friend. The burger was delicious and I wish I could have ordered two! It’s amazing how filling bread is, since I think before this night I had never actually finished a whole burger before. It was a pretty tasty and satisfying restaurant experience.

Here’s hoping the renovations go smoothly and I have my stove back soon..


I have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since January 2008 to recover from Celiac disease. As part of the diet, I don't eat grains, sugar or potatoes and prepare all my meals from scratch.
