Recipes For The Specific Carbohydrate Diet

by Chris Sadler - 1001Recipes2Send.com

For Raman Prasad, author of Recipes For The Specific 
Carbohydrate Diet, finding the Specific Carbohydrate Diet 
(SCD) was a necessity. Suffering a steady deterioration of 
health for years after being diagnosed with ulcerative 
colitis, Raman endured numerous hospital stays and health 
complaints.

For sufferers of IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), Celiac 
Disease, Autism and Cystic Fibrosis eating can be like a walk 
in a mine field. When your body can't properly digest food 
you can suffer abdominal pain, vomiting, weight loss and many 
other complaints. For many, the pharmaceutical treatment of 
these conditions just doesn't do enough and the side effects 
can be very unpleasant.

The SCD was created to help heal the intestine. It removes 
foods that feed harmful bacteria which cannot be digested by 
the injured intestine and then restores the balance of 
beneficial bacteria. Using the recipes included in Recipes 
For The Specific Carbohydrate Diet can help you reduce 
symptoms, ease pain and regain your health. The beauty is 
that there are no complicated routine to follow, just a 
simple chart of what is and isn't allowed. Simple 
substitutions for certain ingredients can make all of the 
difference.

So the SCD is easy to follow but what about the actual 
recipes? This cookbook would be a happy addition to any 
chef's kitchen. The full colour photos of these mouthwatering 
offerings make choosing a little difficult, but only because 
they all look so very tasty. Even though I have no driving 
need to cook food following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet it 
is just so easy to do  that I am going to make some of them 
regular family favourites anyway.

Enjoy this wonderfully delicious sample recipe:

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

this American classic has been created for the SCD with fresh 
pineapples. Do not use the canned variety, or if you do, make 
sure that there are no preservatives or sugars added to them. 
We prefer a fresh, ripe pineapple, as the juices from the 
slices seep into the batter and flavor it nicely.

Ingredients

Batter

2 cups (220 g) almond flour, or more as needed
3 eggs
4 tablespoons (55 g) butter, melted
1/2 cup (160 g) honey
3/44 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1/2 pound (230 g) fresh pineapple, thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C, or gas mark 4). Grease an 8 
or 9 inch (20 - 23 cm) circular baking dish.

To make the batter, mix the batter ingredients in a food 
processor until smooth. Add more almond flour if necessary to 
make sure the batter is not too thin.

Layer the pineapple slices on the bottom of the baking dish, 
and then pour in the cake batter and spread it evenly in the 
pan.

Bake the cake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick 
inserted into the center comes out clean.

Makes 15 to 20 Servings.
