deviled eggs as a snack???

You should be able to use any dill pickle that does not have added sugar. Check out the refrigerated ones, I seem to have better luck there. Also be careful with hummus as that is a domino food....

I've been hovering around the same weight

So how many weeks have you been doing SCD? More than 6? If so, it’s probably time to track your food for a week and let us take a look at what you are doing. Give us a sample of what a typ...
