I am 79 an undiagnosed Celiac, since March 2000. I had chronic sinus infections and fluctuating weight, lost 86 pounds, got pneumonia, and needed antibiotic and Prednisone. I also got MCS and Latex Allergy. Unable to eat without pain, I started The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). Things began to improve at once. I am not cured but SCD has been effective in managing the Celiac and helped improve my damaged immune system. It is a bit stricter than the gluten-free casein-free diet.
1 thick loin lamb chop
*1 teaspoon legal Dijon mustard
Dried Rosemary to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper
A few drops of honey
1 clove finely minced fresh garlic
1" cube of softened gluten-free blue cheese**
1 tablespoon almond flour
1 teaspoon capers
1 strip sugar free bacon or Prosciutto (trimmed so it is narrow about 1")
Pre-soak 2 toothpicks . Preheat broiler. Slit chops horizontally right to the bone. Salt and pepper each outside surface. Set aside drained capers. Cream remaining ingredients
Broil 8 minutes, Turn, and broil 6 minutes; remove from oven, spread remaining mixture on top and broil another 2 minutes until topping browns.
Allow to stand 5 minutes for crust to set and juices to lock in. Remove toothpicks carefully.
*Blue Cheese is permitted on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
** Use the mustard approved for your diet. I use Orphee Organic Dijon Mustard
