Recipes, SCD, follow my journey!
Hi dear friends! Apologies for not being good at writing on this frequently, but as I had mentioned, I don’t have internet access all the time. I’m at my mom’s office now, writing to you 🙂
Since the last time I wrote (wow, only 6 days ago?), Thanksgiving happened. That comment in itself should say a lot to you! I was so blessed to be able to have some turkey, boiled in water. I also started ingesting salt! In my experience, go with Kosher salt. ADDITIVE-FREE, BABY! Sorry, I just am so excited to finally have salt in my system. My doctor was very happy, too, because he said that I was losing WAY too much water. Dehydration is not a good thing, folks.
Of course, hydrating on coconut water has not stopped. I have about 2-3 of those young coconuts a day! The doctor orders twenty 500ml bottles of water a day. I’m so tiny, how is my body going to be able to handle it? My doctor also ordered a potato-chip bag’s worth of salt. That is a lot of salt, people.
I recommend that those of you who are on Stage 2 of SCD to start juicing different fruits. Unfortunately, I don’t have a juicer. Fortunately, in the USA, I am surrounded by different brands of drinks. Naked Juice seems promising. Of course, you never know what these companies can add in there (WARNING: because as long as there’s less than 2%, it doesn’t have to be listed in the ingredients label!!), BUT, Naked has proved to do a-okay with my GI tract. I prefer “Green Machine” and “Red Machine”. (Christmas themed?)
Another recipe I fell in love with these past 6 days is a beef and zucchini dish. I pretty much followed SCDfishie’s recipe, except I didn’t use any oil, and I didn’t add carrots (trust me, after weeks of ONLY CARROT PUREE, you kind of want to avoid it.. forever..).
It’s a journey. Take your time!
BY THE WAY: I’ve been 99% symptom free for about a week now. I left the 1% because I still feel light headed sometimes (but I think the reason is more because I don’t drink enough water), and I don’t have diarrhea, but loose stool. My pains and nausea are all gone though. Hooray!
