Hey there, how are things?
Well actually I used kefir regardless before and after starting SCD and saw significant help. At some point, I lost my taste for it completely, and switched to yogurt, which I craved. Perhaps my body knew when it was time to change.
I do want people to know that the SCD is probably not the only diet on the block or the way to heal a gut... but it has worked for many and has a great deal of scientific evidence behind it. (Unlike The Maker's Diet, which borrows the best from SCD and NT, both very well researched in and of themselves, which I like to rant about from time to time.)
Plus you can have muffins, pancakes, cookies and cake on the SCD!
I know it's hard making the transition, but compared to what I was doing before this is heaven to me. It's more work but you feel so much better! And I find things like strawberry sauce (made out of frozen strawberries) that are so yummy and are easy to make.
Speaking of cake, my next mission is to try to make a chocolate cake
Now this, out of any of my 500 posts tonight, will really get everyone's attention.
I made actual "Pecan Bread" out of homemade pecan nut butter with no sweetner and it actually smells like chocolate to me. So I'm going to experiment, perhaps with pureed dates or prunes to add more richness. Not sure when this is going to be as I am fresh out of pecans right now...
