My 5 Favorite Specific Carbohydrate Diet Meals!

Well hello and Happy Wednesday, everyone! We are back in the good ol’ O-H, I-O!

And boy does it feel good to be back in my kitchen! Traveling is great, but there’s NOTHING like knowing exactly where things are in the kitchen.

I was monitoring some of my YouTube videos, and one of my top videos is this one about what I eat on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

And in case you’re new here, the Specific Carb Diet is what healed my Ulcerative Colitis. I was on bedrest for 11 months in a horrific flare, and when faced with either getting part of my intestines surgically removed (and having a J-Bag for the rest of my life), or going on Humira for the rest of my life — which is a megadrug kind of like chemo that is administered intravenously every month and in essence, shuts off my immune system, I asked my doc to give me 2 weeks to try this radical therapeutic diet I had read about.

And sure enough, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet healed my Ulcerative Colitis (UC), and I have been symptom and medication free for nearly 14 years now!

But back to the video: one of the comments was from another UC sufferer, and she said that after finding my video, she tried the diet and – praise God – she is feeling better and her symtoms are subsiding!!

There really is such power in this diet. And that little interaction we had in the comments section reminded me why I started this blog in the first place: to help people. Whether that’s recovering from an eating disorder, or for finding hope while struggling with such a debilitating autoimmune disease: my mission in life is to help people.

So I thought I would share on here 5 of my absolute FAVORITE Specific Carbohydrate Diet-friendly meals that I make all the time!

Because who says this therapeutic diet has to be hard and boring!

So thank you, it allows me to keep blogging!
