Hello and welcome to my blog, which is all about finding ways to make delicious food even if there are LOADS of things you can’t eat and you actually think your life might be over because you can’t just eat what you want (which, in my case, used to be Pringles, pasta and cakes).
I follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) which, as the name suggests, is quite specific and pretty restrictive and probably not that common – but BEFORE YOU STOP READING, the key thing about the food that I cook (and all the recipes on here) is that it’s all gluten-free, grain-free and sugar-free. So, ideal for people with coeliac disease and those following a paleo diet or for people who just want to give gluten, grains and sugar a miss for a bit.
Even though my diet’s probably more restrictive than most people, what I’ve realised is that anyone who has to avoid certain foods experiences the same dilemma as me; namely, how to avoid it dominating and ruining your life. So this blog is also partly about how to have a nice life even in the face of food adversity.
Most of the food I cook is actually under-cover special needs; you could eat it without even noticing that you were eating food from a restricted diet, which means you can make it for other people too and they won’t notice either.
