Lemon Cardamom Froyo

  This is such a bright -flavored frozen yogurt. I feel like it would complement fruit pies well - especially blueberry, apple, or even sweet potato. Please let me know how it is, if you make it, by leaving a comment below. Enjoy!

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)

Turkey Meatloaf

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.

Banana Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

A delicious frozen treat that tastes just like vanilla ice cream. You can sub out 1 or both bananas for mango, pineapple, or avocado and get similar results (simply slice the bananas into a measuring cup to determine how much to replace for or go by weight). Let me know if you tweak the recipe … Continue reading Banana Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Nutty Banana Breakfast Bars

I felt like creating something original today. I think it could still be better, but it definitely hit the spot. Right now I am not sure I can have honey, so I've been playing around with baking using fruit as the only sweetener. Hopefully, if my love affair with honey must come to an end, … Continue reading Nutty Banana Breakfast Bars

LEAP Diet Phase 2

After struggling through phase 1 with only 2 proteins and 2 veggies (I ate a lot of bananas and pecans), I must say that it was well worth it. I have literally no bloating when I'm done a meal and I've lost about 3 to 4 lbs and can finally fit into a bridesmaid dress … Continue reading LEAP Diet Phase 2

Banana Pecan Coffee Smoothie (LEAP)

I found what I will be having for breakfast for at least the next 10 days! Perhaps once I can add more items in, I will trade out the mango for some coconut and keep this sucker in rotation for a while. Enjoy!

Banana Avocado Nut Bread (LEAP)

I am horribly bored on this combo SCD/LEAP diet. I need more protein options and veggies. Either way, I've somehow managed to find something easy and delicious to include in my diet for the next few days. I tweaked a recipe I found for a bread that uses almond flour, banana, and avocado. Below is … Continue reading Banana Avocado Nut Bread (LEAP)

Dirty Banana Cheese Cake (Tweak)

This is easily one of my favorite recipes. When I first made this for a dinner party, with only myself being on SCD, everyone enjoyed it. I then proceeded to eat a slice for breakfast every single morning until it was gone. While I know some of these ingredients are pricey, it's worth every penny. … Continue reading Dirty Banana Cheese Cake (Tweak)
