Tired of Cooking..

I’ve been getting a bit tired of cooking lately. Kind of expected this to happen since I’ve been cooking for myself (plus others) multiple times a day for about 2 months now. Before that, I was probably cooking 3-4 times a week and already getting sick of it. So what to do on a day where you don’t feel like cooking? Get some salmon and throw it in the oven. I took a minute to sprinkle some random spices/herbs on it. I also quickly pan-fried some mushrooms and asparagus with onion and garlic. Took about 5 minutes. That’s about as close as you’re going to get to ‘fast food’ on the SCDiet.

I have worked my way up to over a cup of yogurt per day now. It’s great to have as a quick breakfast or snack. I tried dripping some the other day hoping to have a thicker yogurt. Well I ended up with something close to cream cheese (I think I left it too long) which I mixed with frozen blueberries and honey. Made for a delicious frozen-yogurt type of desert! I maybe overdid it on the honey in this one, but I wanted something sweet.

What I ate today:
Breakfast – SCD yogurt, blueberries, almond butter brownie
Snack – applesauce, goat cheddar cheese
Lunch – bison meatballs (with squash replacing the egg), lots of SCD ketchup, papaya
Snack – another brownie, strawberries
Dinner – salmon, mushrooms and asparagus with onion and garlic (pictured here)
Dessert – SCD dripped yogurt, honey, blueberries


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. Kat — don’t tire of cooking! You are an inspiration and I appreciate you sharing your SCD creations (thanks, too, for your response to my comment on your previous post re: brands).

  2. Aw thanks for the encouragement. I get tired now and then from cooking, not the first time it happened. Once I find a new recipe that I’m eager to try I will be more likely to get back into it. Probably this weekend I’ll make something from one of the recipe books I borrowed.
