About

I have been following the SCD diet since January 2008 for undiagnosed digestive problems that I suspect are caused by Celiac disease. As part of the diet I don’t eat grains, sugar, or potatoes and prepare all my food from scratch. I believe that food plays a huge role in achieving health and want to share my experiences in restoring my own health through change in diet. Most of the recipes I share follow the SCD and GAPS diet protocols, but can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to eat Real Food.

  1. I just had a question about your experience with SCD. How long were you on it before you could eat raw fruits and vegetables without problems? I’ve been on/off SCD for the last few years and was wondering what other people’s experiences were like. Thanks!

  2. Can you shoot me an email? I feel similar to you. Wondering what a typical day for you is like.

  3. @Amelina Hi Amelina, I would say fruit was easier to eat raw to start with, but it took about a year. Really it’s only been the past 6 months that I have been able to eat raw fruit & veg in a moderate amount. So I would say 2 years on SCD before handling them well.

  4. Hey, nice blog. I’ve been really bad at following my Paleo/Primal diet. When I am away from the wife and kids its easy as I can cook what I want. However when I’m at home the wheels fall off and I’m knee deep in fried rice. For some reason I see the SCD diet as being a good “gateway drug” from the wife and kids. SCD seems less restrictive (esp with regards to dairy) and therefore an easier lifestyle to transition to. What are your thoughts on that?

    Also, I have a request. Maybe a few more organ meat recipies. I am the son of an immigrant chief and I am ashamed to say that I do not know anything more than beef heart stew.//Larry

  5. @Larry I definitely I think the SCD approach would be an easier transition. The focus is more on healing and less on weight-loss or fitness. I do find the Primal/Paleo idea can be a bit off-putting especially for some women. SCD, GAPS and BED (Body Ecology Diet) are all good starting points. Also, Mark’s Daily Apple is a good resource and he focuses a lot on the 80/20 rule. Eat pimal 80% of the time, follow that lifestyle 80% of the time. The less restrictive it sounds maybe the more your wife might accept it. Even if you follow it 100%, having your family start out with less is still an improvement.

    I’ll be posting some links to other recipes for organ meats soon. I don’t have a whole lot of my own, but there are some pretty good ones out there.

  6. Thank you so much for your blog. It’s an amazing resource for SCD living. I’m looking forward to keeping up with your progress. Best of luck!

  7. HELP. I also have a non diagnosed intenstinal problem and just started SCD diet. I am confused on my early symptons on this diet and would like to talk it thru with someone who has had experience.

    Thanks

  8. How do I start? I’ve been reading a lot about SCD and I think I need it bc my Crohn’s is getting worse. Also, I’m a bit of a caffeine addict. How can I feed this addiction safely?

  9. I see that you use stevia. In Breaking the Vicious Cycle, Elaine says the only legal sweetner is honey. Why do you use stevia?
