Snowed In

We had a major snowstorm and ended up stranded at home for a couple days this weekend. Luckily we knew about it ahead of time so I had plenty of time to do groceries on Friday for the weekend. We tried to leave the house today but got stuck about 3 houses away. After digging out the car, we decided to head home.

So I finally found the goat’s milk I use to make yogurt in the big bags at the grocery store. This is awesome as it drops the price down from $3.29/liter to about $2.25/liter. That’s significant savings considering I’m making 2 liters a week! I’ll have to go a bit further to this store, but I will only be going once every two weeks or so. So I made some more yogurt this weekend, as well as a few dishes.

I made the Beef Korma again and this time used the crockpot. Ohh it was even better! Instead of simmering the meat for 40 minutes on the stovetop, I put it in the crockpot on low for about 7 hours. It was much more tender and had a lot more flavor. So delicious.

The next dinner I made again my artichokes and chicken. This is turning into quite a hit with everyone. Our guests over for dinner asked for the recipe and both my bf and brother fought for seconds. I was hoping there would be leftovers..

I have also started eating goat’s cheddar cheese lately. So I used some shredded cheese on my eggs and it was so good. Nice to have some new flavours in my life! (Note: I am doing SCD with eggs on a rotation basis, basically I only eat eggs once a week for allergy reasons. I’m trying to keep baked goods and meatballs egg-free since I have them more often.)

Will be cooking more this week (as always) and I’m really hoping to try new things. I fell like I’ve been making the same 3 recipes over and over.


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.


  1. Hi,Kat. Goat’s cheese I always thought was Feta. Feta I thought wasn;t SCD compliant. Do I stand corrected? 🙂

    Also, how would you chaeracterize the taste of the goat milk yogurt vs. the cow’s milk? I’ve never tried it though I hear some find they tolerate it better.

    Another question I have for you, since you are in Canada — which legal SCD mustard do you buy? Also mustard powder, chili powder, etc. Is there a site that lists products by brand/country?


  2. Feta is illegal but cheddar cheese is fine. Cheddar cheese from goat’s milk should be made the same way as with regular cow’s milk so it is legal. Feta cheese is usually made from goat’s milk or sheep’s milk but it’s the process that makes it illegal, not the type of milk used.

    I can’t compare homemade goat vs cow milk yogurt. I haven’t tried making it with cow’s milk. The homemade yogurt is so different from store bought that I don’t know if you can really compare the tastes. I really like it though. I use whole goat’s milk and add a bit of honey.

    I haven’t actually used any mustard since I started, so I’m not too sure which would be legal. I think if you check the labels though, most mustards are legal. I buy spices as separate spices not mixes. I don’t use onion or garlic powders, but I thought the rest of them were fine, like red chili powder. My red chili powder has that listed as the only ingredient. I haven’t seen a site which lists legal products by brand, but if you find one I’d definitely be interested.
