I’ve taken the development of my diet to the next level beyond using the FODMAP. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ has helped many with various forms of bowel disease. In many cases people consider themselves cured. So it makes sense to use all available knowledge, ‘meshing’ the FODMAP lists with the SCD™ Legal/Illegal list.
Beginning today I will be modifying or identifying each recipe at it meets the FODMAP and SCD™ restrictions. Working on my first almond bread and revisiting my food list.
One of the first areas of revision is Dairy. For example, I have been using a butter substitute that worked well for me, but has too many ‘illegal’ SCD™ components, while butter is ‘legal!’ Also, all cheese was verboten, except feta cheese, but the SCD™ has many legal cheeses, not including feta. Arggg! Yeah!!
Initial findings are very exciting for me, but I’ll miss my vanishing buns, until I find a way to make them work.
