SCD Recipes

Tell me if this has ever happened to you…

You see a recipe that looks amazing. You click on it, fingers crossed.

Will the ingredients all work for me?

One by one, you read them, getting more and more excited. And then, there it is: some food you just cannot eat, ruining the entire recipe for you.

And I’m not talking about conventional recipes. I mean when you’re already looking at healthy recipes and they still don’t work for you!

I know I’m being a little dramatic here, but when you’re eating a restricted diet, it can be incredibly frustrating to try to find new recipes that work.

And when boredom with the recipes you do have sets in, you’re more likely than ever to stray from eating the foods that support your health and make you feel your best.

That’s why, today, I want to talk about modifying recipes to work for your healthy gut diet. [click to continue…]

How to make your own gut-healthy chocolate

Having a healthy go-to treat is serious business.

I’m talking about something you can enjoy that won’t set you back 3 days (or more) on your healing journey.

It could be the difference between staying on the right track or completely falling off the wagon (and contemplating never getting back on).

A healthy treat shouldn’t be too much to ask for, but often times it is.

And we don’t want it to be the reason you experience a dreadful setback.

Our dark chocolate recipe meets all the criteria of an amazing treat: simple, versatile, gut-healthy and delicious.

There’s nothing else like it… warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven.

(Hey, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy a cookie sometimes! After all, delicious food is one of life’s greatest pleasures.)

Even if you’re following a healthy gut, grain-free diet like SCD or paleo, you shouldn’t have to give up the occasional cookie.

But here’s the problem: a lot of gut-healthy, grain-free recipes rely way too much on one ingredient that may be holding you back from healing: nut flour.

Bone Broth

Whether you’re following SCD, AIP, GAPS, or just a healthy gut diet, you should be doing one thing: making and drinking bone broth regularly.

Bone broth helps heal leaky gut by restoring the mucosal lining of the intestines. It’s a potent source of glutamine and other essential amino acids. It can help with everything from gut pain, to joint pain, to skin health.

The traditional way to make bone broth is “low and slow.” You start by combining plenty of high-quality bones with water on your stove or in your slow cooker, and then you wait… and wait… and wait a little longer.

24 to 36 hours later, you (finally) have delicious bone broth (plus a hot kitchen with a very particular odor!)

For the past 7 or 8 years, this is what I’ve been doing just about every week. (I drink a mug of bone broth nearly every day). The only time I got a break was when I bought high-quality packaged broth like Kettle & Fire.

The New Bone Broth Tool That Is Blowing My Mind

Some of you are gonna laugh when I tell you what I recently bought that is totally blowing my mind. (A lot of you already know about or own this tool, which is great!)

But other people still may not have heard about it, or may be on the fence about it.

I hope this convinces you. [click to continue…]

SCD Chicken-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

You guys know, I’m not a professional chef.

But over the last 10 years, I’ve learned a few things about what makes food taste good.

And one of the things that makes anything taste better is umami.

Umami is the 5th flavor – it’s hard to describe, but the best word is probably savory. It gives food a deep earthy flavor.

You can add umami flavor to food with several ingredients – anchovies have it, tomato paste or coconut aminos are other good options – but my absolute favorite source of umami flavor are mushrooms!

This recipe has a TON of amazing umami flavor from coconut aminos, two types of mushrooms, AND Kettle and Fire’s new mushroom chicken bone broth.

I like it as a hearty appetizer or even as a main course.
