What’s cooking?

Not much lately.. With my kitchen in the garage I have been pretty limited in what I can make. We’re waiting for new cupboards and countertops to be delivered, so in the meantime our old kitchen cupboards along with new appliances are in the garage. It’s functional except for no stove and no water. I have been using an electric wok to poach or hardboil eggs (as shown in picture). Our microwave also works as an oven so I have baked some salmon. I used the crockpot to make some chicken soup. Other than that, I’m living off dinners and meatballs I have frozen, my yogurt, cheese, and bananas.

I have always been one to believe in moderation. Don’t eat too much of one thing type of deal. But lately I’ve been eating way more cheese and I have been feeling great. I have stopped with worrying about overdoing one food, and started listening to my body. I never ‘crave’ cheese and always feel good after eating it. It’s great to bring along in my purse since it travels well. I think the salt in it helps too. Usually if I’m feeling weak and hungry, a piece of cheese keeps me going until I can cook something up. I also have a piece of cheese before bed so I don’t feel weak in the middle of the night. I would even go so far as to call cheddar cheese an adrenal fatigue superfood. Eggs too maybe.

My cheese of choice is an organic cheddar goat milk cheese that tastes fabulous. It’s not colored orange like regular cheddar cheese and has a nice pure taste. I’m going through about 2-3 ounces per day. I need to start buying more than one block at a time. I’m also going through 1.5-2 cups of cream yogurt per day, need to start making more of that too..


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. I too am following SCD and have adrenal fatigue. I am feeling somewhat better on the diet, but still have almost debilitating fatigue often.

  2. Hello Kat,

    I read this post earlier and decided to buy some Raw Goat’s Milk Mild Cheddar Cheese at Whole Foods which has been aged for at least 60 days. I brought it home and ate about half the block (I was starving). It tasted great and my stomach didn’t get weird while eating it. It’s been about an hour since I’ve eaten it and my stomach is still calm. But I looked on the BTVC website and it says that Chevre is illegal. Do you know if these are the same things? I’d love to keep eating this as DCCC hasn’t been in stock for awhile and now I’m nursing a flare-up of colitis. Thank you for all your help.


  3. Hey Eric,
    The goat milk cheese you bought sounds wonderful! Chevre is actually a soft cheese made from goat’s milk that is illegal. However cheddar cheese from any milk source is legal.
    Enjoy your cheese!
    I wish I could find raw milk goat cheddar here, I can find raw milk cow cheddar but only pasteurized goat..
