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)

Monster Muffins

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.

Cherry Pear Sauce (Thanksgiving)

I can no longer have cranberries, so I decided to try something new for a similar sauce for Thanksgiving. It came out wonderfully, but it isn't very tart. If you're looking for tart, I would replace the grape juice with SCD legal tart cherry juice and reduce the pears by 2. I would likely also … Continue reading Cherry Pear Sauce (Thanksgiving)

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

Banana Coconut Pecan Cookies (3 Ingredients)

I made these cookies because I am still on the LEAP program and I am limited as to what ingredients I can use to create things. I haven't had a baked good in a while and I made chocolate chip cookies for some guests later. I want to enjoy a snack as well, so I … Continue reading Banana Coconut Pecan Cookies (3 Ingredients)

Ginger Orange Beef Jerky

I decided to try out my new dehydrator this weekend. Aside from some simple fruit leather in mango and raspberry flavors, I came up with this delightful recipe. Enjoy!

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)

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)
