Nourishing Food

(11 entries)

Rogue Chef Joaquin and (not-so-rogue) “chef” Maria sharing the delights and beauties that come out of our special diet. I started SCD with elements of GAPS and kept it going for four years. Now we also have gluten–free grains and some complex carbs in our diet, but we remain sugar, gluten, and yeast free.

Weedy, expansive, and perfect in my garden and kitchen, I love my mint and all the sweet and savory treats I make with it. Here’s to many more years together!

Walnuts and cashews make a creamy, rich, and nourishing chocolate ice cream (our mousse) free of refined sugar, eggs, gluten and dairy.

Sweet Cake »

An SCD recipe developed by six-year-old Joaquin. His first muffin, and third concoction for his project of daily experimental desserts. I love the video tutorial!

Chocolate Birthday Cake »

Joey said it tasted like German chocolate cake, and Joaquin loved it and died for the double frosting. Here's the SCD (except for the cacao) recipe.

Baking Puzzle »

Calling for the help of more experienced bakers to improve my experimental recipe of SCD veggie-rich muffins.

For all the years I’ve spent trying to avoid the kitchen »

Introducing SCD (the Specific Carbohydrate Diet) to our lives, and with it begins an era of learning to cook and bake like I never thought I would.
