Take a Look, it’s in a Book…

The Reading Rainbow


Some delicious reading material for us enjoying the SCD.

Eat Well Feel Well by Kendall Conrad

We have enjoyed a few of the recipes from here so far, but haven’t had a chance to really delve into them! If you have offspring to feed, there is a section devoted “Just for Kids”!

Lucy’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet Cookbook by Lucy Rosset

We have really enjoyed her pizza casserole recipe. This seems like a great book and we will slowly work our way through it!  When we ordered the book, we actually got to talk to Lucy on the phone and she was delightful. We called her again later asking for some advice on how to travel overseas and she was very friendly and had some really great tips.

Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by Raman Prasad

Jordan was especially excited when he heard about this one and we got it for Christmas.  He read it cover to cover like a novel the next night.  This is a great book to get some recipes influenced by the Asian continent… India, East Asia, the Middle East, and more!  Jordan has begun cooking the chicken recipes from the start and we will work our way through each one.  Yum!

Cheers to Cheers!

This is a recipe created graciously by Jordan, THE stud muffin.

The Take
Jordan, Mr. Snazz, pants treated me to a very special day vaca including splurging for a couples massage – what – a – guy.  I should compliment the hotel we stayed at because we brought a prepared SCD meal along and room service heated it up and brought it like room service along with covered dishes and ice water.  Thanks to the Kimpton company for great customer service.  Thanks to my husband, too…. 🙂
