But that's OT.....
Has anyone found any SCD-legal bacon? BTVC mentions making BLTs (todays craving, by the way) with almond bread, etc., but I couldn't see where you could get SCD bacon. We order our beef and pork from a farmer who does his own curing of the hams and bacon - He's trying to research for me how to do bacon and ham that I can have, but he tells me that I may be asking for "bacon-free bacon"
Also, I've had good luck with Annie's Organic yellow mustard. Amazing what a victory it can feel like to find prepared foods that we can eat.....
Going to make the BTVC meatloaf tonight. If the homemade catsup isn't too gross, my next magic trick will be to make cocktail sauce - if I can ever find fresh horseradish root......
I get my sugar free bacon at Costco. It's the Kirkland brand, salt free. Yummy
Yesterday, I celebrated my first year on the SCD. I gotta tell you I feel great! I recomend this diet to everyone. My Dr. said I had Crohn's, about 3 years ago. I was on pentasa, and he was talking surgery. I mentioned the diet to him, but he said there was no cure for Crohn's Disease- only surgery. I went home and started the diet anyway. After 5 days, I felt great, and improved a little every day. 6 months later, I went to the dr, and he was pressing on my gut for all he was worth, saying "Doesn't that hurt" ?!! I said no, it was a little uncomfortable, but no pain. He said "I don't know what you are doing, but keep on doing it". I showed him the book BTVC and he had heard of the author. I quit all my meds about a month ago, and con't wait for my next colonoscopy!!
I feel I could be cured of my Crohn's Disease, but am staying on the diet anyway. I don't find it's too restrictive, because there are substitutes for just abaout everything. I do miss a few things now and again, but certainly not enough to eat them.
I find the freezer is my friend. I make most things ahead of time, and pop them in the freezer. Then, when my family has pizza, I have meatza. If they have chicken wings for a snack, I have my homemade honey garlic chiken wings. I keep stews, caseroles, and other premade foods ready in the freezer, and then I'm not tempted to cheat when I need a fast meal.
Sorry to be so long winded, but I just joined and wanted to introduce myself.
