SCD Recipes


  Links to other recipe websites

Here you will find a compilation of interesting recipe websites that we have collected along the way. Almost any recipe you find can be adapted to the SCD standards. Most of these links are NOT "SCD safe". You, have to "interpret" and translate most of the recipes, but all it takes is a bit of experimenting.

For example, almond flour instead of other flours, coconut milk instead of regular milk or cream, honey instead of sugar, etc, etc. And there you have it!

Darrell, Here is a web site that will help a lot. This list is very helpful also. Many people share there receipes on the scd list. The diet is time consuming and hard at first but after you get used to it and learn how to freeze ahead of time, it becomes manageble. It is well worth all the trouble. Do not think of it as a diet, it is a change of the way you live.

Gluton, casein, grain and bean free recipes

Subject: Update of PaleoFood Recipe Site

I just spent some time reorganizing the PaleoFood recipe site and adding more than 100 KB of new recipe text. This makes it much easier to find things, and the site is now more than 50% larger.

All recipes are gluten-free, casein-free, grain-free, and bean-free. The should make them acceptable for most people on the SCD.

This recipe site is all SCD, plus no dairy at all, and not the few bean types that Elaine allows. It does have citrus and some tomato. Often the recipes with tomatoes are segregated out.

PaleoFood Recipe Collection:

From an adult point-of-view I like to snack on raw nuts of various types and homemade jerky. But you are looking for more lunch type of things. Check out the site. It is organized like a popular cookbook.

Hi group,

FYI... for those not on the old SCD list (now IBD diet list). Don Wiss, the former listowner posted the following message about paleolithic diet recipes. This diet is even more restrictive than the SCD, so most recipes should be ok for us on the SCD.

All have no grains, no gluten, no dairy. no beans/legumes, no refined sugar, or other Neolithic foods. Most should be acceptable for people on the SCD.

Low-carbohydrate recipes

Hi Everyone,

I was looking around on the net recently and found this bunch of recipes. They are from a website that is a support site for people on low-carbohydrate diets. Not all the recipes work for the SCD, but I believe quite a few do.

Bon Appetit!

Keith Wilkinson started a SCD recipe site back in 1996. Keith wrote the SCD editors on 9/9/2000: Mike, OK - I have a recipe page that is still alive. It's now at I'm THRILLED to say, I'm no longer restricted to the scd (Yes! It WORKS!!!!) - but in the process of learning what I did while on the SCD, I can't justify eating "normal" food anymore!
