Yin Yang,
High doses of vit. C for an adult mean 10 grams or more. With bioflavonoids too, about 1/4-1/5th dose. There is a thread entitled "Sodium Ascorbate" that is a must read and will discuss dosages. I'm on a vit. C research kick right now. Waiting for Dr. Levy's book from library:

The best site and book on enzymes is here: www.enzymestuff.com
Thank you!! Great info!

Hey I've forgotten more than I know! Which page/section is that on? This is one of the reasons I'm ***SO freakin' irritated*** at my mom who has taken 3-4 different abx since being diagnosed with a form of lymphoma.

Oh and try the cashew bread with homemade almond butter instead. It comes out nice and pale (well depending on how orange your pastured egg yolks are) it almost looks like real bread!

Jane,

I'm TOH w/a sick & sleeping babe, so excuse the brevity

Look @kombucha recipe or beet kvass recipe--its in the margin.

I ruined 6 quarts of yogurt. It got too hot and it separated into cheese and whey. So I had the chance to try out a lot of recipes

I strained the cheese over a piece of muslin in a colander for about 24 hrs or so. After all was said and done I was able to fill 1 1/2 quart mason jars full of cheese.

I made the peanut butter swirl brownies on pecanbread. OMG. These were so freakin' good. And they don't require a lot of cheese either, probably about half a quart of yogurt (before draining).

I made the pinapple cheese dessert in BTVC. It was good. A lot of work though, and it wasn't so fantastic that I'll make it again. Unless I'm craving it or something.

Cheese cake, also from BTVC. I had some leftover cashew butter from Jane's cashew cake recipe, about a cup or so. Just soaked and dried cashews and some olive/coconut oil made into nut butter. I smooshed it into a pie pan and followed the recipe for the cheese cake. Since I only can tolerate goat, and the recipe calls for DCCC & drained yogurt, I just used the drained yogurt. This is so fantastic!! It calls for ton of cheese though (I think 2 1/2 c), so I don't see myself making this too often, unless I, oops, accidentally ruin some yogurt BUT, OMG, it is so good!! Especially w/some broken down strawberries

WOW! I just got Grain Free Gourmet from Lucy's Kitchen Shoppe and yum yum! I've been eating like a spartan compared to this.

Does anyone else have this cookbook? What have you made that's yummy?

We're having company in 2 weeks and I'd love to make something great.

Mmm, so many new recipes to explore! I just got my copy of NT. I ordered 3 copies, 1 for me 2 for gifts .

I have GFG. It's okay, I haven't branched out to many recipes though. I do like their method of making muffins with no oil. They are lighter.

The strawberry shortcake is very good.
The blintzes were impossible but I don't think I had enough patience.
Using provolone cheese crispy-fied for taco shells is awesome.
Some fish casserole I forget what one, was disgusting.
The apple omelet is good.

I'd love to have more ideas for recipes. Those of you who have Grain Free Gourmet, do you think it would be worth buying for someone who can't have any dairy, and their nuts are limited to pine nuts and brazil nuts (and maybe pecans -- we're still not sure)? We have such a limited diet, and I'd love to have more ideas, but don't want to waste my money, either.

TIA

Christie

Christie there are a lot of recipies in here that are dairy free. I like it because there are nice photographs of some of the dishes.

To me, it feels like a *real* cookbook so it's lifting my spirits as I'm feeling like we eat the same 3 things for dinner over and over and over. (Roasted chicken, hamburgers and stew.) Oh, and an occassional pizza.

I use the hamburger bun recipe on SCD Recipes to make pizza dough and cook it on my pizza stone. It turns out really good.

Money saving ideas -- I don't have any yet, except to eat less nut butter. And buy less fruit.
I would appreciate a list of menus, and also, tasks, such as when you make time to make the nut butter bread, etc. I never seem to get around to it.

I just wanted to hop in and disclose that I made the cheesecake, again : Oh man, it is so freakin' good. I made almond butter (soaked and dried almonds w/coconut oil) w/some honey for the crust and

I also make oven fried chicken which we love. We have no problem tolerating the chicken, although, some might w/the coconut flakes and "frying".

Its simple. Dip your chicken pieces in beaten egg and then dip in unsweetened shredded coconut. I then dip in egg and coconut again. Place in a oven dish w/a generous amt of olive oil. Cook at 350 until done. You want to flip once during cooking, being mindful that you don't lose the backing. I use a metal spatula to make sure the chicken stays intact. Season w/some sea salt and

I also make a delicious roated herb chicken. In a mortar & pestle I smash the hell out of some rosemary, sage, and thyme, raw garlic and butter. I use a knife to really get under the skin and place the herb butter under the skin and all over the chicken. OMG, it comes out so well!!

Looking for veggie recipes!!

A big favorite is coconut curry kale. Cut some onions and fry them over low-med in coconut oil. When translucent add green curry paste that is SCD legal, about a teaspoon to start. Add destemmed kale and coconut milk, cook at same temp, covered, until wilted. Season w/sea salt.

Okay, I made beet kvass and it is :Puke Anyway to make it more palatable??

I am going to try the chicken asap. I also just bought some kale. I will look for curry paste that is SCD legal, that sounds yummy.

As for the beet kvass, are you drinking it straight? What about making some soup with it?

I desperately need help. We have been 100% SCD legal and haven't gained any weight in 6 months. My boys weight what they did at two. I just figured this out (not one to go on worrying about weight and checking up) and I feel like the worst mother.
Then I sat down and figured out the calorie content of the foods they eat and, well, I'm shocked they haven't lost weight. Mostly they are eating meats, eggs, and vegetables along with coconut oil, rice bran oil, and clairified butter for fats/cooking. I think part of the problem is that we can't do dairy and nuts/seeds. Maybe without those things this diet is just not able to be done.
I am seriously considering adding back in some millet. I really don't want too, though. Can you momma's help me come up with some calorie containing reciepes without dairy and nuts that my boys might like?

Have you been to the pecanbread yahoo group yet? This sounds like a question they you would get a lot of replies to.

AmyD,
I made that cheesecake today and it was great.

Next time I'm going to use the zest of a lime and make key lime pie.

Thai Kitchen is the brand I have. I got mine at whle foods but I have seen the brand elsewhere. I mix about a tablespoon with a can of coconut milk and then throw in veggies and meat.
