The Specific Carbohydrate Diet has kept my Ulcerative Colitis in remission for 13 years! I was on bedrest for one whole year back in 2010, and now, thanks to this miracle therapeutic diet, I’ve been symptom and medication free for over a decade, and counting!
But the diet is tough:
So what’s a gal to eat?!
Here are my favorite snacks! None of these are sponsored, they’re the brands that I’ve found to be SCD-legal!
- Whole fruits like oranges
- Pineapple with freshly ground raw almond butter (bonus points to add ground cinnamon)
- BARE Baked Apple Chips – the cinnamon flavor is the best. These also come in green apple and banana varieties. (And they’re on sale today!)
- Harvest Roast Pumpkin seeds — they come in multiple flavors, but sea salt is the best.
- Dry roasted pistachios! Just make sure to check the ingredient list that it’s only nuts and sea salt!
- Larabars and RX Bars are great for on-the-go! Just again, check the ingredients to make sure that they’re not the variety with chocolate chips! ((My favorite flavors are carrot cake and pecan pie Larabars, and the Vanilla almond RX bars!))
- My Banana Ice Cream is my FAVORITE snack of all time!
2 bananas, cut into coins and frozen
1 cup of your frozen fruit of choice
1/2 cup cold almond milk (check ingredients for ones where the ingredients are only almonds and water.)
Blend until smooth in a food processor.
- A Banana Boat with almond butter, cinnamon, and chopped medjool dates!
- Hard boiled eggs are high in protein and great to make in batches for fast snacking!
- Bubbies Sauerkraut is so delicious and packed with probiotics.
- Lastly, another favorite: mashed avocado with sea salt, and carrot sticks or other veggie dippers!
Eating on the Specific Carb Diet doesn’t have to be hard or boring! There’s lots of deliciousness out there, you’ve just got to get creative, and plan ahead!
