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.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
