SCD Recipes


Okay… so I mean you won’t actually want to die, because then you could never eat this again (which you will want to).  But seriously these pork chops are going to knock your socks off.

This recipe came about because it’s springtime and I wanted to add more fruit into my life as it comes back into season.  (And it’s what was on sale at the market.)

These pork chops pair great with a side dish of cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or kale.  (At least those are the sides I’ve made with them.)  I’m sure they will taste great next to any costar you choose.

Jordan and I are in the thick of preparing the Solving Leaky Gut course for the public and these chops hit the spot at the end of a long day.

Before we get to the yummy dessert in front of us… I need to tell you this is not “SCD Legal” due to the Carob Powder. If you’re on a Paleo type diet or you’ve already healed quite a bit, this recipe is for you.  If not, please don’t ignore the recipe.  Instead, think about something you do tolerate that can go in its place 🙂

With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s party!  (My kids are going to love this one from our friend Angela.)

I think that you’ll love this cute and easy dessert that is nut-free and chocolate-free. It is really simple to make, too!

Sometimes my 5-year old son comes home from school asking to “eat the food the other kids have.”  So I do my best to improvise, like the time I made him Apple Sandwiches.

Sometimes the other kids have Mac n’ Cheese and he’s asked about it, but I didn’t have any ideas for him then.  Mostly because I don’t tolerate dairy and eating classic Mac n’ Cheese is partly why I got sick in the first place ha-ha.

But a dairy-free version that still tastes good?  That’s an interesting idea…

That’s why I’m happy to have our friend Angela from back to share another cool recipe, this time for Butternut Squash Mac n’ Cheese (including a dairy-free version).  Granted the dairy-free version isn’t quite the same… but it’s still a cool recipe that I can eat.

Woohoo!  I’ll be testing this out with my kids very soon 🙂

Angela's soup in a pan

The two most common objections we hear from people switching to Paleo or SCD are:

1) I don’t have time to cook all this food

2) What will I eat for breakfast?

Which is why I shared my famous turkey breakfast sausage recipe a few years ago (especially for those that don’t tolerate eggs or dairy).

But there’s one more secret to saving time and still eating a healthy breakfast: LEFTOVERS!

So I’m happy to have our friend Angela from back to share this cool leftover breakfast idea.

Mmmmm, jello.

I love eating food that reminds me of being a kid… and jello is one of those fun foods that takes me right back to childhood.

Plus, gelatin itself is one of the best foods we can eat to heal our gut!  That’s why we recommend eating bone broth so much.

Here’s a few words about gelatin from published work by our friend Dr. Siebecker (1):

To summarize, gelatin (broth) can be considered for use in the following conditions: food allergies, dairy maldigestion, colic, bean maldigestion, meat maldigestion, grain maldigestion, hypochlorhydria, hyperacidity (gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, ulcer, hiatal hernia) inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut syndrome, malnutrition, weight loss, muscle wasting, cancer, osteoporosis, calcium deficiency and anemia.

Sound like it might help you?

If you’re like me, you can only tolerate so much bone broth… which is why a nice break in the form of blueberry jello sounds just right.  And fortunetly, our friend Angela from stopped by to share her amazing jello recipe (YAY, thanks Angela).

Before we dive in, please note this recipe calls for dairy in the form of 24-hour SCD yogurt.  I don’t tolerate dairy and I’ve made similar jello by removing the yogurt and it still tastes pretty amazing.  So don’t let one ingredient stop you from making your own batch (minus the diary).
