The photo is of my current ferments. I made SCD yogurt using half n’ half cream in my Yogourmet maker (big white bucket).

The orange stuff is a mixed ferment of carrots, ginger, garlic, and onion. All from the farmer’s market and as fresh as can be! I chopped/grated it all up and added sea salt and whey and pressed it down in the jar. I kept pressing it down a few times a day for about 5 days then kept it in the fridge. It’s been in my fridge about 2 months and is still perfect.

The purple is beet kvass. I make about 2 cups at a time because that’s the size of jars I have. This one is almost done but I have another one on the counter just starting. I leave it on the counter 2 days then in the fridge until it’s gone.

The small jar is very basic sauerkraut. Cabbage shredded up with salt and some whey. I really don’t like the taste of it! I much prefer the carrots.

What I ate today:
Breakfast-1/4 cup beet kvass, 1 cup half n’ half cream yogurt with honey & blueberries, 1 egg hardboiled


Lunch-chicken leg with skin coated with butter and salt, almond brownie, fermented carrot juices (about 1 tsp)

Snack-cheddar cheese with liver pate

Dinner-lamb stew with carrot, celery, onion, tomato, 1/4 cup beet kvass, 1/4 cup chicken broth

What I cooked today:
lamb stew: set it up in the crockpot before work this morning. I actually get up 15 mins early (6:15am!) to cook now.
2 cups beet kvass: will have to sit on the counter for 2 days.

What I moved today:
Walked 30 mins, yoga 30 mins

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.
