Scd Birthday Cake
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi all!

We have our daughter on the SCD diet to heal her gut and hope that once its healed some of her food intolerances will go away.

Her 4th Birthday is a month away and I'm wanting to get a head start on finding the best tasting SCD birthday cake out there.

I have found some online that I'm going yo bake this weekend but I wanted to ask on here, is there anyone that has had great success with baking an SCD diet birthday cake?

Thanks!

We usually do cupcakes instead. If your daughter can do coconut flour these are pretty good http://comfybelly.com/2011/06/very-vanilla-cupcakes-using-coconut-flour/#.TxoznYE8T5w

It's been a little while since we did SCD so I can't remember if apple cider vinegar is allowed but this recipe looks good and uses almond flour http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/recipes/almond-flour-cake/

I personally prefer the denseness of the almond flour stuff but coconut flour makes for a "fluffier" cake or cupcake. Hope this helps!

Thank you!

How did you child do on the diet? My daughter is slowly but surely showing so many improvements. It's so amazing to have my happy healthy little girl back.

We did great on it! I did it along with my two daughters. We probably only did it for about 6 months or so but our symptoms were not severe. We continue to eat a paleo diet which is grain, dairy, legume, and refined sugar free. So, not so different then SCD. The only thing we struggled with on SCD was the yogurt part. I think we all have casein allergies. We probably weren't as good about probiotics as we could have been, that's something I'm still working on. The SCD diet is not easy but it is so worth it!

Good to hear! Isn't the paleo diet very similar to the SCD diet?

I am on the diet with my daughter as well and it surely is not a cake walk.

My daughter is severely allergic to milk as well so we won't be making the yogurt either. I don't want to be in this with her yet be able to eat yogurt and tell her she can't so I'm just stating away from it as well.

Yes, paleo is very similar to SCD and possibly even more restricted because of the exclusion of legumes as well. I'm actually thinking about starting over and getting back on the intro of SCD/GAPS...we've been having some new allergy symptoms and I think I rushed SCD and didn't let our guts heal completely. Plus we didn't do so well during the holidays so I think we need some help recovering from that. I'm going to follow GAPS this time which is pretty much the same except a little updated, talks more about fermented foods too. We're mainly having issues with coconut and nut flours so I think we rushed those.

what's scd??

Specific carbohydrate diet, works on healing the gut. Check out Breaking the Vicious Cycle. GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) is another one that is very similar to SCD but a little more updated and also works on healing the gut...this is what we're going to follow this time around since it seems to fit us a little better.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
