Layered Cake with Buttercream Frosting

This post is a combination of recipes that ended up working really well together. I wanted to try a "naked" cake frosting technique, so excuse the aesthetics above as this is still a work in progress. Below are the links to each recipe, my tweaks, and my reviews. Cake Credit:B http://www.everylastbite.com/2018/10/19/lemon-layered-cake/ This cake is excellent… Continue reading Layered Cake with Buttercream Frosting

Pizza Crust (SCD & Paleo)

I miss pizza above all other things on the SCD. I have dabbled and attempted to make pizza substitutes using ground chicken, nut flours, or riced broccoli (I cannot have cauliflower). This pizza crust recipe is hands-down the best I've yet to come across. I can honestly say that I would eat this over regular… Continue reading Pizza Crust (SCD & Paleo)

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 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)

SCD Focaccia Bread (Tweak)

I'm about to start my LEAP/MRT program next weekend and I am very limited in all of the food categories. I have chosen to view this as a challenge instead of a hindrance. Let's see how long that lasts! I made some walnut and cashew flour foccacia bread last night (to use up my flour)… Continue reading SCD Focaccia Bread (Tweak)

SCD Pumpernutkel Bread (Tweak)

I love this bread, so of course I had to tweak it to replace the almond flour due to food sensitivities. I'm calling this version my pumperutkel loaf. The flavor is even different, but lovely. Try not to eat it all at once.B Click here for the original recipe. Tip: For freezing, slice the bread… Continue reading SCD Pumpernutkel Bread (Tweak)

Coconut Banana Bread (Tweak)

  After finding out that I reacted high to almonds and must avoid them (not really upset about this other than losing their versatility), I had to find something delicious to make with coconut flour. I also had 2lbs of bananas to sneak into some recipes. MyB tweak on this recipe was to cut the… Continue reading Coconut Banana Bread (Tweak)
