So I no sooner post here about “post”-SCD, and a couple of days ago, hubby gets a dose of urgent D. First time in a very long time, but we’re completely at a loss as to what caused it. Although, I haven’t been 100% happy with my last couple of batches of yogurt. They smell … Continue reading
Hubby has been putting orange juice in his smoothie lately, and he says it “sits nicer in his guts”. Don’t know what it does, but it does add a nice taste variation too. I’ve been reading Going Against the Grain in fits and starts over several months, and it echoes SCD quite a bit. The … Continue reading
I went to make a replacement batch of yogurt tonight, and lo and behold, my starter was mouldy. Not old either. I think its just gotten contaminated with something, and hence my batch was unsuccessful. So my musings about temperature were a load of old codswallop by the looks of it.
Found this on Resting Rabbit’s blog. http://www.resting-rabbit.com/2008/11/chai-spiced-yogurt.html Looks both yummy and interesting. I plan to give it a try when I’ve got those spice ingredients on hand. cheers and yummy eating.

I have since found out that there is a characteristic of raw egg white which has nutritional implications that SCD’ers should be aware of. Uncooked egg white apparently binds … Continue reading
This is a slightly modified version of my original SCD Heaven Smoothie Recipe. I have decided to re-christen it “The SCD Hunger-Buster”, because that is what it does. So very many people who join the internet support groups – see my blogroll in the right hand column – mention hunger, and the difficulty with losing weight on … Continue reading
Well last Tuesday, 4th March, was a big day for us. After G’s 36 years of vegetarianism (24 for me but the last 3 adding fish to our diet), we had lamb chops for tea! Then last night, roast chicken. Yum! lol! Its funny that all those years I couldn’t really abide the idea of … Continue reading
Checking the temperature. My sister-in-law found this thermometer at a Home Brew supply place. When we went to the fancy kitchen establishment there was nothing this useful, let alone this cheap. I think it was $6.00 and its pretty much saved my life. I was struggling with a little digital medical thermometer which didn’t function over … Continue reading
I gave this post its own category, because I think it is the “biggie” to get sorted when you start on this diet. There is a continual stream of postings on the group’s website with yogurt in the subject line. I certainly haven’t got it “sussed” yet, but my big tip is, just do it. Make mistakes, … Continue reading
