Crockpot SCD?

Anyone have any good dairy free/egg free crockpot recipes? I tried the porkchops and lentils on scdrecipe.org, and it was great, but unfortunately I don't think I'm ready for lentils (I knew it was too early, but I couldn't resist).

I already do the basic chicken and broth thing in the crockpot as well as pot roast with carrots, but looking for any other tasty ideas.

I know it's late, but just subbing! I had great luck with SCD when I was pg in the spring, but then, somehow it just wasn't so easy to cook all the time after he actually came out : and I need to get back to it. I have a lot of reading to do, and a couple of recipes I can share, but don't have time now. Thanks for all this info!

Is there a Trader Joe's near you? That's where we get nuts, nut butters and almond flour (called almond meal).

WOW! Yammy yammy stuff on that website!! Thanks for sharing.
How about those chocolate/nut butters!! Man, that has danger written all over it Have you tried the one's with organge or cherry oil added to it?

another question - does it matter if you use roasted or raw butters since it's gonna be cooked anyway? Which ones do you prefer? I'd go raw if I am gonna eat it rae, but dry roasted seems a good choice for cooking.

A second vote for lucy's. Just a tip - the shipping for 10 lbs is the same as for 5, so you may want to go for the 10 lbs and then freeze some. For other types of nuts, I just buy them raw and organic at our local farmer's market and then soak them NT style and process in the food processor. It isn't as good as lucy's, though. For nutbutters, I've been using the ones I can find at Whole Foods, but may hae to convert to ff's new find.

Awesome! I don't know how I've missed this website til now. Oh, I'm off to find some goodies to buy . . . (it's sad how excited I get when I can find something ready made that I can eat!)

Coincidence?

I just received a call at my job from someone on the SCD diet. I have heard of similar diets but never this title. Anyway, I come here to MDC and this is the mostrecently posted thread in H& H...cool.

Well, I beleive some of my employers products fit the bill. I am finding out for the customer who called. I will let you all know too! Until then I will try to read much of the thread. And the customer said he was on msg. boards about SCD and all- -so HI! if that was you!

Everyone else, thanks for all of the support for being on SCD while pregnant - it wasn't much of a choice, since I strongly suspect that my two previous miscarriages were related to leaky gut 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.

I put my pork chops in a casserole dish, and dump homemede salsa on top. cover, and cook for a few hours. Wonderful. If you don't have homemade salsa I see that Pace salsa doesn't include sugar on the ingredient list. However, you may not want to chance it. I myself am very strict about what I eat.

Just wanted to update on this. The trip went well. My mil decided that since I was cooking she and fil would eat summer sausage, hard boiled eggs and cut up veggies for every meal :eyeroll

I will say that with this recipe you could easily double the cream sauce and I made it with 3 medium eggplants and could have easily used twice that much eggplant. Also be careful to not over salt it and don't cut the egg plant too thin. It really shrinks when you sweat it and broil it.

Moussaka
makes a 9x13 pan full (for plenty of leftovers or enough to feed a large family)

Eggplant:
2 medium to large eggplants, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Salt and allow to drain in a colander for 15-30 minutes. Brush with olive oil and broil on each side until nicely browned.

Meat sauce:
3 lb. ground meat (whatever you like)
2 onions, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. oregano
4 tsp. to 2 Tbsp. tomato sauce (whatever you use)

Brwon the meat, saute the onions and garlic, add everything else and mix well. You can heat it through or not.

Cream sauce:
7 Tbsp. coconut flour
7 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 3/4 cups cocont milk
3 eggs, beaten
sprinkle of salt and nutmeg, if you want

Mix the coconut flour and oil together in a small saucepan over medium low heat until pretty smooth. Slowly add the coconut milk while whisking. Whisk slowly but constantly until the sauce starts to thicken and bubble. Turn the heat down to low. Spoon a small amount of the milk mixture into the eggs while whisking the eggs. Keep adding milk mixture to the eggs until you've added about a third or half of the mixture. Add the egg mix back into the thickened milk. Raise the heat slightly and stir constantly until the mixture bubbles and thickens a bit more. The sauce won't be quite as smooth as with regular flour and milk, but it will work.

Now, to make the casserole, you start with a layer of eggplant slices, top with a layer of meat sauce, and then finish with a layer of cream sauce. Repeat the layering. I usually just do two layers of each, but you could use three if you want.

Bake at 350 for 45 min. to 1 hr. No need to bake it until you're ready to eat it. Just assemble it and refrigerate until you're ready to bake and eat.

It's a bit of work, but it's yummy!

Enjoy your visit.

Christie

P.S. You could also make a frittata when you're there. THey're easy enough that you could make enough for everyone to eat (you could even make a separate one for them that included potatoes and cheese).

Also, we just a week with my family, and we made meals that everyone could eat. We just had things available for them that would make the meal more yummy to them.

We grilled chicken and burgers, and also veggies. We grilled potatoes, too, for them, or they could have been baked. We also made soup. And we made taco salad. We ate what we could of the fixins, and they added other things (like chips and cheese). It's a serve youself sort of thing, and everyone just took what they wanted from what was available.

Just a thought. It wouldn't work with folks who are fairly rigid in their thinking, but we were lucky that they aren't. And my aunt asked me for my ideas of what to make, and what we could eat, so that we could all eat more or less the same thing.

Corky, have you checked out the Healing the Gut tribe thread? It sounds like you may have some valueable input there Lots of us are on SCD and have many questions.

Wow! I'm so impressed and inspired. It sounds like you're very self-disciplined, and probably pretty creative, too. And as you say, you may be cured of the Crohn's (sounds like a definite possibility). But who knows if you would continue to do so well, or if it might even come back, if you went back to a "normal" diet. Good for you for sticking with what feels the best for your body!

And welcome to MDC!

So glad the trip went well. Ah, well, if they want to eat that way... They sound like my ILs. In fact, after your last post about them, I meant to come back and post a story about mine (and then I forgot). Dh and I got married at my IL's house. They refused to serve food that I could eat - at my own wedding!! It would have been so easy for them, too. Just buy the platter from the whole foods store rather than from Safeway. But no. I had to make extra stuff for me, just so that I'd have something to eat. They also complained that I bought flowers! They said it was unnecessary. Maybe for their wedding, but not for mine!

What you said about the moussaka made me realize an omission on my part. I forgot to say to rinse the eggplant after letting it sit with the salt on it and before brushing it with oil. I can't believe I forgot that! Sorry. As for using more eggplant, I'm sure that would work if you made more layers. And if you aren't such big meat-eaters as we are. I hope you liked it anyway.

Dh has had chrnoic diarrhea for 1.5 years and we are starting him on SCD right away so I'm subbing!

What is the best set up to use to make Yogourt?

So we are about to start dh on SCD. I was wondering what the best set up would be for making yogourt? Should I buy a crock pot? A heating pad? A thermos yougourt-maker?

Sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere but I don't have time to search the million yogourt threads!

All advice GREATLY appreciated.

Kombucha and water kefir

Legal or illegal?

Lots of folks around here seem to have good luck with the heating pad method or the oven light method, but I couldn't regulate those at the right temp, so I went with a Salton (got it from amazon) with a glass mason jar. It works wonderfully for us. If you're going to be eating a lot of it, you may want more than 1.
