Huge news this week! The SCD community has a new cookbook. And it’s the most beautiful one yet.
One of my biggest gripes with some cookbooks is lack of pictures. I’m just not able to picture what something should look like without them. So I don’t use those cookbooks, which is a shame because I’m sure the recipes are good.
Thankfully Against All Grain, the new SCD cookbook, has full-color photos for each recipe!
It was created with lots of love from someone just like you. Danielle Walker, the author, struggled with Ulcerative Colitis just a couple years ago. She started with SCD and got some pretty amazing results.
As she healed and adopted a grain-free lifestyle, she started posting recipes on her Againstallgrain.com site. She now has over 200 free recipes on there. While she has migrated over time over to the Paleo diet, most of what she provides still comes from her roots in SCD.
She also wanted me to let you know that, “There was a mistake made when categorizing the SCD recipes in the book. Please keep in mind that sweet potatoes are not SCD legal and can be substituted for butternut squash in recipes that use it in the book. Also, where chocolate chips are an optional add-in, do not use for SCD as they are not legal.”
(I think she said this is changed in the 2nd printing.)
