Use these recipes to heal your gluten intolerance, celiac disease, IBD, IBS, Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, diabetes, and food allergies For decades, people with incurable digestive problems have been helped by the specific carbohydrate diet (SCD), a clinically tested way of eating that has gained increasing popularity in recent years. This book gives readers easy-to-follow recipes that adhere strictly to the SCD while providing exceptionally tasty breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert ideas. The delectable dishes in this book are perfect substitutes for classic meals -- it's hard to even notice they're made without sugar, gluten, grain, or lactose. From Mexican meatball soup and sweet and sour chicken to carrot cake and apple cider donuts, a full, appetizing, and safe diet can be a reality for those working to restore their health. The SCD recipes in this healthy cookbook go back to the basics, using natural foods that have always been eaten by humans rather than difficult-to-digest, recently developed complex sugars and chemical additives that can lead to health issues.
