Guacamole is a very nice addition to mexican foods.
Here's my slow carb recipe

You need:

1 Big Tomato
1/2 onion
1 avocado
Salt
Pepper
Garlic / Garlic Powder
The juice of 1/2 lemon

Put the avocado in your mixer or crush it with a fork if it's soft enough.After that mix with the lemon juice. Cut the tomato and the onion in small pieces and throw everything together. Salt, Pepper & Garlic as uch or as little as you wish.

Before SCD I put a tablespoon of sour cream into it for a better taste, but even without, it's still a very nice addition to Chili cn carne or to use as dip for vegetable snacks.

My first recipe in English.
I hope the Online dictionary was right with the words^^.

Have fun and all the best from Germany,

Marcel

Hey Guys,

Can anybody recommend some really REALLY easy recipes that taste great and are filling?

I've just started the SCD and as a noob I made the easiest mistake that Tim mentions in the book, I didn't eat enough today!

So I'm looking for some easy recipes because I'm a rubbish cook! Haha. Honestly though, give me recipes that are fool-proof, recipes that a 5 year old could make!

I'm also looking for a really tasty - and if possible - high energy lunch for when I'm at work during the day.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it :-D

ferment cabbage as sauerkraut (whey from live culture yogurt and sea salt + time), beets and turnips, pickles... The whey kickstarts the fermentation process so that it only takes a week or so on the counter to get the desired results. Then store in the fridge in order to keep the foods live. Don't "can" or heat process these foods or you'll kill all the beneficial bacteria.

Check out Wild Fermentation by Sandor Katz and his site/forum http://www.wildfermentation.com/ and http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/200 ... thods.html for more info about fermenting veggies.


I hate to ask this but I can never find anything on sites. Do you have a specific link to the making the kraut the way you do? I make it, but traditionaly in a crock and it takes forever and we can it.
Thanks in advance.

Ok, question.

Looking at some of the recipes.

When I did the High Protein Diet, carrots, beets, tomatoes where not allowed because of the sugar content. Squash's were also not allowed, why? No idea.

Notice a lot of recipes with those in it.

??????

Thoughts?

The protein diet is probably a low carb diet. The difference is that SCD is a low glycemic index diet. He does explain this in the book.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycemic_index and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-glycemic_index_diet

I got a recipe from foodwishes.com that I love

http://foodwishes.blogspot.com/2009/01/ ... chili.html

You could find suitable substitutes for the veg. oil.


Or if you wanna be quick and cheap about it, just dice up some chicken and sautee with salsa and add beans and spices. Take about 20 mins form prep to eat and it taste almost exactly the same as the chili but the texture is different because it's mostly chicken with the flavor as opposed to the whole stew of the chili

Because of the cold weather, my wife decided that a good soup was in order. :) I came home the other day to an awesome lentil soup! I asked her how she made it so I could share it with everyone.

Ingredients:
1 medium onion, chopped
several cloves of garlic, diced
1-2 tomatoes, chopped (or a can of chopped tomatoes)
1 lb dry lentils
8 c chicken stock (or water and a couple bouillon cubes)
protein of choice, cut into small pieces (a nice sausage works well!)

Directions:
0. Soak the lentils for a few hours
1. Sautee the onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil. When they brown, add the tomato and sautee for a bit. If you're using meat, add it here and brown it up*.
2. Rinse the lentils and toss them into the pot to cook a bit with the tomatoes and onion, about 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the chicken stock and leave it at a low boil until the lentils are tender.

*If you use sausage that's not cooked, cook it first while it's in the casing. Then slice it and add it to the soup at the end.

I don't much like plain beans so often cook up a can or two of chickpeas in this way:
Fry some curry/masala spices in a pan
Add rinsed chickpeas and fry around a bit
Add a spoon or two of tomato paste and a little water to allow it to boil
Cook for about 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is gone, without being dry.
Chickpeas are more digestible than straight from can, and yummy!
In fact I cook most canned beans before using.

Last night's delish green salad:
Chopped...
raw spinach, celery, cooked asparagus, all tossed together with some lemon juice and oil
Topped with...
chopped nuts, chopped hard boiled egg and some mayo.
You could also add in beans but I gave them a rest as I've been having too much of them, and stopped losing weight.
Woke up feeling great and having lost some weight :)
