I have not introduced crab yet for LEAP. I was finally able to find lump crab meat with no other ingredients besides pasteurized crab (Whole Foods). I've combed through some recipes out there to come up with my own SCD legal recipe that also reduces fat (no mayo here). I am currently trying to increase … Continue reading Crab Cakes (Low-Fat)
Hair Care Review: Living Proof
I've recently become obsessed with Living proofB hair products. I have always had long and healthy hair - despite countless color applications and processing. Back in May of 2017, I had to cut my hair short because, I believe, the round of prednisone I was on for two months destroyed it. It could also be … Continue reading Hair Care Review: Living Proof
Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie
This one is too good not to have its own post off of Instagram. It's filling and gave me a needed protein boost. Enjoy!
UC Remission Status Update
Please don't mind any misspelled words or poor grammar as I type this on my cell phone. I recently had my 6 month GI visit in April and wanted to share the results. Thus far, everything is looking good. I requested a fecal calprotectin test (which apparently I'll be paying for out of pocket), and … Continue reading UC Remission Status Update

I've also made this printable as one recipe instead of 3 individual recipes. My birthday just passed and I wanted to try making something for myself and my boyfriend to … Continue reading Coconut Pineapple Cupcakes
Carrot-Free Nomato Sauce

So, I set out to attempt making a nomato sauce by altering the need for carrots. I also do not use red wine vinegar and I … Continue reading Carrot-Free Nomato Sauce
SCD Meal & Snack Ideas (March 2018)
It's been awhile since I've posted, so I figured I would condense a few meal ideas into one entry. Some of these are simply links to the recipes I used while others are recipes I created myself. I don't often measure when I cook and I had not intended to post most of these as … Continue reading SCD Meal & Snack Ideas (March 2018)
Green Tea & Lavender Face Wash
After searching for a natural facial cleanser for some time now, I decided that making my own may be the best way to control what I am putting onto my skin. With all of my intolerances and new skin issues, this provides me with the flexibility to change up the formula as needed to accommodate. … Continue reading Green Tea & Lavender Face Wash
This is my SCD Monster Cookie tweak. I wanted something with a bit more substance for Christmas Eve and I do love Monster Cookies, so I felt that this was a natural progression. Enjoy! Leave a comment with your thoughts and/or any adjustments if you try them.
My first SCD Thanksgiving meal was a success. The sauce pictured in the image is the cherry pear sauce located on the site. I simply roasted my veggies in honey, mustard powder, salt, and olive oil along with the turkey meatloaf (same time, stirring occasionally). Veggies include: celery, broccoli, string beans, and spinach.
