Newbie To Scd- Need Some Pointers

Hello to all!

First let me start off by saying thank you to all of you that have replied to my posts- through your support and information I feel that I am making good choices in regards to my health and that I am not alone or crazy :)

I have decided to try the specific carbohydrate diet since even though I am gluten free- I am still showing some symptoms and know that alot of it is related to sugar(refined) and some grains (can't pinpoint grains though- reaction to rice chex & brown rice, but can eat brown rice pasta- who knows??)

Anyhow, I am starting the diet next week and have purchased the book "breaking the viscious cycle". But I am having trouble planning my menus- I have to cook everything ahead of time on Sunday because I have a long communte and work long days and do not want to cook when I arrive home.

I need some tips and ideas for foods. I now realize I cannot have the Pacific Naturals Chicken broth since it contains cane juice- but I think I can have the vegetable broth (I don't have time to make it myself).

For breakfast especially I am having great difficulty. I just found out that I am allergic to eggs (was eating them every day!) and i substituted it with Quinoa- now I cannot have that either. Also, enterolab shows a sensitivity to milk (blood tests do not <_< ) and soy is out of the question.

It is also questionable if I can eat nuts- possible past reaction- all blood tests now negative??

I noticed by all the threads that people on the SCD are very happy and feel more improvement that just with a gluten-free/cf diet.]

Any tips would be greatly appreciated since I cannot get ym husband to help me figure out the meals.

MOST IMPORTANT: I eat bacon every morning and I realize that the applegate sunday bacon I use is not SCD due to evaporated cane juice being added- does anyone know of a "legal" bacon??

Thanks so much!

There are quite a few people on here who have had success with the SCD.


This particular thread is devoted to the SCD, and may give you further information/meal planning ideas. I noticed that it wasn't on the active topics for today, so thought I would let you know it's out there.

Otherwise, I hope some others will come in and give you some good ideas.

Hi Gina. There is an active SCD thread on this section just a few down from your thread on the list - please feel free to post and ask anything. One of the original questions concerned 'legal' bacon and what is available in the US - it's worth reading through the thread as there is a lot of interesting info. You haven't logged where you are as we hail from around the globe and what foods you can find obviously depends on where you are.
